“Personal Information” is information about You that is personally identifiable to You, such as Your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, payment and billing information, as well as any other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to Your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.
Collection of Personal Information
The Personal Information gathered from You helps MediStreams learn about visitors to the Site, our customers and potential customers. We use this information to better tailor the features, performance and support of our products and services, to offer You additional information and opportunities.
Personal Information You Provide to Us
We collect Personal Information that You submit to us voluntarily through the Site. When You register as a user on the Site, we may collect, without limitation, the following information You provide to us: Your first and last names, e-mail address, company and/or phone. When You contact us by sending us an email, we collect Your name, e-mail address and information contained in the e-mail You send us.
Personal Information Collected Via Technology
As You navigate the Site, certain information may also be collected passively, including Your Internet protocol address (“IP address”), browser type, domain names, access times and operating system. We also use “Cookies” and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) to gather information regarding the date and time of Your visit and the information for which You searched and which You viewed. This type of information is collected to make our products and services more useful to You.
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” or IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any web site within the MediStreams network, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the MediStreams network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
From time to time, MediStreams may send a “cookie” to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie can’t read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
We use third-party web beacons from Yahoo! to help analyze where visitors go and what they do while visiting our website. Yahoo! may also use anonymous information about your visits to this and other websites in order to improve its products and services and provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Personal Information We Receive From Other Sources
MediStreams may receive Personal Information about You from other sources like postal mail, telephone or fax. We may add this information to the information we have already collected from You via the Site in order to improve the products and services we provide.

We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as Your name) that makes the information personally identifiable to You. We may use this Anonymous Information to analyze request patterns and usage patterns so that we may enhance our products and services. We reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties under our discretion, including for internal business analysis and to provide aggregate demographic data to our various partners.
