EZStream.com Privacy Policy

Last Update: August 29, 2005

Scholastic Tools, LLC dba EZStream.com (EZStream) considers your privacy to be very important. The following notice explains our privacy policies in detail. Please contact us if you have any additional questions.

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, EZStream is defined as the main website located at www.ezstream.com, as well as all imbedded or linked components and web pages that are provided through EZStream's partnerships and related websites.

Information Collection and Use 
EZStream is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.  EZStream collects information from our users at several different points on our website. 

Registration
In order to use certain areas of EZStream, a user must first complete a registration process. During registration, user's are required to give their email address and other identifying information. This information is required to verify identity and ensure accountability with respect to data on the website and in our database. In addition, the data is used for billing purposes.  Some information collected is required, while some is optional. The more information we have, the better we can serve our users. We will only use the information collected to fulfill the services being contracted for. 

Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We deploy them simply to keep track of our user's login status, otherwise a user would have to log back into the system every time they loaded a new page. Once a user logs out, or a user's login expires, all cookies created by our site also expire. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use certain areas of the site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site, most importantly the Broadcaster's Logon section where the user can maintain their respective data. In the future, we may also use cookies to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Also, advertisers and/or advertising agencies may use cookies on our site, but we have no access to or control over those cookies because they are set from their own websites, totally separate from ours. 

IP Addresses and Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. 

Information Sharing and Disclosure
EZStream will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information. In the future, we may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers, but this will not be linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. 

Links
EZStream may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site that they should read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by EZStream.

Surveys & Contests
EZStream may request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. 

Security
EZStream registration and login information is password-protected for privacy and security. For the same reasons, we do not allow the website to "remember" your password, because many users may be logging in from a public terminal, which creates a risk if another user gains access. Please always remember to logout and even close the web browser when you are done entering data, especially in these situations. All of our users' information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.  We contract a private company to host our website and maintain web servers and related equipment.  However, since we do not have control over every point through which data may travel to and from your own location, it is a good policy to change your password now and then.

Announcements and Special Offers
In the future, registered users may occasionally receive site and service announcement updates or information on products, services, special deals, a newsletter, and so on. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, if we choose to send this type of information, we will give our users the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our "Choice and Opt-Out" policy below.

Correction/Updating Personal Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or you wish to be removed from our database, you can contact our support team via email to support@ezstream.com

Choice/Opt-out
To date we have not actually sent any group email announcements, but when we do we will give our users the opportunity to 'opt-out' of receiving email announcements by providing a link in the email which allows them to unsubscribe while still keeping their registration current (in the future we will also provide a checkbox for this in the registration form). Also, if we decide at any point in the future to share information with third parties, users will be able to opt out of that as well. Users of our site will always be notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We will only do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party or not. 

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify registered users by way of an email. Registered users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
