1. The Information Livestream Collects:

Information You Provide: You may provide to Livestream what is generally called "personally identifiable" information (such as your name, email address, credit card number, postal mailing address, and telephone numbers) if you use certain services or products from the Livestream Service, enter contests or sweepstakes, or otherwise use the features and functionality of the Livestream Service.

“Automatically Collected“ Information: When you access the Livestream Service (including through your computer or your mobile device) or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using different types of tracking technology. This “automatically collected“ information may include Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), a unique user ID, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Livestream Service, and the dates and times that you visit the Livestream Service.

“Cookies“ Information: When you access the Livestream Service, we may send one or more cookies . small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters . to your computer.

“Pixel Tags“ or “Clear Gifs“ A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our Livestream Service but not on your computer.

If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.

Your User ID. Your User ID is displayed throughout the Livestream Service and is therefore available to the public. Other people can see your feedback, ratings and associated comments, etc. Therefore, if you associate your actual name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities on the Livestream Service.
