1. The Information Memocast Collects
Any member profile information, media, video, image, comment, or any other content posted onto the Memocast Portal at your direction becomes publicly-published content, is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Notice, and may be collected and used by others.

- “Cookies” Information: When you visit the Memocast Portal, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. Memocast uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Memocast Portal. By using these cookies, we can “remember” what you’ve done on the Memocast Portal before and this lets us personalize our site for you and save certain parts of the site or services just the way you like them. These persistent type of cookies can be removed, but each web browser is a little different, so please look through your browser “Help” file to learn the correct way to modify your cookies set-up.
- “Automatically Collected” Information: When you visit the Memocast Portal or open one of our HTML emails, we automatically record certain information from your web browser by using different types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons”. This “automatically collected” information may include your Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), web browser type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after the Memocast Portal, the pages you view on our site, and the dates and times that you visit.
2. The Way Memocast Uses Information
- Memocast uses the information that we collect to operate, maintain, and provide to you all of the features and services found on the Memocast Portal. For example, when you use a credit card and input your billing information to purchase or download media and videos, we use that information as necessary to process your orders and for recordkeeping purposes. We will use your email address, without further consent, for non-marketing or administrative purposes such as notifying you of major site updates, for customer service, or to contact you for any reason regarding media you have posted.
- Memocast uses all of the information that we collect from our Customers to understand the usage trends and preferences, to improve the way the Memocast Portal works and looks, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to create new features and functionality.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting Customer’s member profile access or before making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.
5. Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites
Memocast does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Memocast to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-24) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed or purchased certain channels or videos) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks. Memocast’s Privacy Notice does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.
6. Our Commitment to Data Security

However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If Memocast learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Memocast may post a notice on the Memocast Portal if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.

IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE MEMOCAST PORTAL AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER. If Memocast learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected or posted on the Memocast Portal without verifiable parental consent, then Memocast will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
