- Your Upload Stars Account. For some activities on Upload Stars, like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted videos, you need an Upload Stars Account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.
- Usage Information. When you use Upload Stars, we may collect information about your usage of the site, such as the channels, groups and favorites you subscribe to, which other users you communicate with, the videos you watch, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in Upload Stars. If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your Upload Stars Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.
- Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., video comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others.
