- Browsing Upload Society. You can watch videos on Upload Society without having an Upload Society Account. You also can contact us through the Upload Society Contact Center or by emailing us directly without having to register for an account.
- Your Upload Society Account. For some activities on Upload Society, like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted videos, you need an Upload Society 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 Society, 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 Society. If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your Upload Society 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.
- If you submit personal information to Upload Society, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of Upload Society, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.

We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Upload Society changes or for customer service purposes). You also can choose how often Upload Society sends you email updates in your Upload Society Account settings page.
