Cookie Policy

Last Updated: June 21, 2021

Welcome to PolyStreamer! Our Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information.

This cookie policy specifically explains how we, our partners, and users of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

For capitalized terms not defined in this document, such as the Services, as well as the definition of "you" and "we", see our Terms of Use.


What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to "remember" you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a "session cookie") or for multiple repeat visits (using a "persistent cookie"). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as "first party cookies"), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website ("third party cookies"). Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as "web beacons" or "pixels." These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How We Use Cookies

We use cookies on our website,, for a couple of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary to enable the Services we provide; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (like logging in, for example). Many of the cookies we use are only set if you are a registered user (so you don't have to log in every time, for example), while others are set whenever you visit the site, irrespective of whether you have an account. For more information on the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.

Our Internal Analytics

In order to better understand how our services are used, we monitor certain user activities that take place within our products, including page views, clicks, stream statistics such as durations, bitrate, destination, as well as errors or other events. Analytics events are attached to your account and are handled via a first party system that PolyStreamer owns and maintains. In general, we record the following data for each event: IP address, user ID, user agent, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code. We use this information to improve our products, plan expansion and new features, investigate errors, ensure the security of our servers and users, and for other purposes described in our Privacy Policy.

Consent for Target Platform Cookies

PolyStreamer targets specific video delivery platforms, which we've defined in our Terms as "Target Platforms" (including YouTube and Facebook). By targetting one of these platforms, you are consenting to a link between your PolyStreamer account and your Target Platform account. This causes the Target Platform to set third party cookies on our domain (, and these cookies are managed and controlled by the Target Platform. For details on these cookies, see the privacy or cookie policies of said Target Platform.

Note that PolyStreamer does not automatically enable any Target Platform (or their cookies) by default. You must specifically click and add the Target Platform in your PolyStreamer dashboard. You may, at any time, remove the Target Platform from your PolyStreamer dashboard, and / or use the Target Platform dashboard to remove PolyStreamer (typically in a section called "revoke app permissions").
