Privacy Policy


Upload Media respects the privacy of each Visitor. Upload Media has established this Privacy Policy to explain how Data is collected by Upload Media, and how this Data is used and disclosed. Upload Media takes the protection of Personal Information very seriously. Upload Media may process (for example, collect, use or disclose) Personal Information only as described in this Privacy Policy.

Definitions and Interpretation

Words defined or assigned a meaning in the Agreement will have that meaning in this Privacy Policy, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise. For purposes of this Privacy Policy: Data means any data (including Personal Information) provided to Upload Media by a Visitor; and Personal Information means any Data or information about an identifiable Visitor, including an email address.


Collection from browser. Upload Media automatically receives and records information on Upload Media’s server logs from the browser of a Visitor, including an IP address, Upload Media cookie information, and the page requested. Each Visitor should be aware that other Websites visited before entering the Website might place Personal Information within a URL of a Visitor during a visit to it, and Upload Media has no control over such Websites. Accordingly, a subsequent Website that collects URL information may log some Personal Information.

Collection on registration. Once a Visitor registers with Upload Media, a Visitor is not anonymous to Upload Media. When registering, each Visitor provides Data, which includes a UserID, a password, and an email address. To combat online fraud, Upload Media may also record the IP address of a Visitor when adding Data. In addition, a Visitor may provide necessary Personal Information to process a credit card payment or debit order authorisation, including a billing address.

Decline to share. A Visitor can decline to share Personal Information with Upload Media by not registering with Upload Media.

Children. Upload Media does not intentionally gather Personal Information about visitors who are under the age of 13.


Messages and updates. Upload Media may send to a Visitor administrative messages and email updates regarding its account, the Website, or its Goods or Services. In some cases, Upload Media may also send a Visitor primarily promotional messages. A Visitor can choose to opt-out of promotional messages.

Cookies. Personal Information may be used to improve the Website. Upload Media may use cookies to save the UserIDs and session validators of a Visitor on its browsers and hard drives, and may use cookies to provide a tailored Website. IP addresses also help Upload Media to diagnose problems with and to administer the Website.

Targeted content. While a Visitor is logged into the Website, Upload Media may display targeted adverts and other relevant information based on the Data. In a completely automated process, computers process the Data and match it to adverts or related information. Natural persons do not read Data to target adverts or other information without consent. Upload Media never shares Personal Information with any advertiser, unless a Visitor specifically asks Upload Media to do so. Advertisers receive a record of the total number of impressions and clicks for each advert. They do not receive any Personal Information. If a Visitor clicks on an advert, Upload Media may send a referring URL to the advertiser's site identifying that a Visitor is visiting from the Website. Upload Media does not send Personal Information to advertisers with the referring URL. Once a Visitor is on the advertiser's site however, the advertiser may collect Personal Information.


No selling. Upload Media will not sell, share, or distribute Personal Information. No Personal Information may be disclosed to anyone except as provided in this Privacy Policy.

Marketing purposes. Upload Media may disclose aggregate statistics (information about the Visitor population in general terms) about the Data to advertisers or business partners for marketing purposes.

Third party supplier or agents. Upload Media may need to provide Data to a third party supplier to supply or provide specific Goods or Services to a Visitor (such as hosting services, support services, shipping services, or payment processing). Each third party supplier is required to only disclose or use the Data to supply or provide the specific Goods or Services requested.

Law enforcement. Upload Media may disclose Data if required: by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order by law; to protect the safety of any individual or the general public; to prevent violation of the Agreement, or the rights of Upload Media or any third party. An IP address may be disclosed to a third party: if the law or a legal process requires it; to protect the rights or property of Upload Media, a Visitor, or the general public.

Affiliates. Upload Media may share Data with an Affiliate, in which case Upload Media will seek to require the Affiliates to honour this Privacy Policy.

Change of ownership. If Upload Media undergoes a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, Upload Media may assign its rights to the Data it processes to a successor, purchaser, or separate entity. Upload Media will notify each Visitor of the transfer and the Visitor may choose to modify its Personal Data at that time. If a Visitor is concerned about its Data migrating to a new owner, the User may deactivate or delete its account.

Employees. Upload Media may need to disclose Data to its employees that require the Data to do their jobs.

Abuse. Upload Media may disclose Data to designated third parties to resolve or investigate abuse complaints. Upload Media may release Data to assist in attempting to block an abusive Visitor or complain to its Internet Service Provider of an abusive Visitor.

Security of Data

Upload Media uses some of the most advanced security measures to protect the Data under its control. All Data is safe, secure, and available only to the Visitor and those to whom Visitor has granted permissions. In addition, the Website is hosted in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced security measures to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.

Username and Password

During the registration process, Upload Media will provide Visitor with a UserID and password. It is the responsibility of each Visitor to maintain the confidentiality and security of their password.

Updating or Removing

A Visitor may choose to correct or update the Data they have submitted to Upload Media, by going to their account. To remove any Data from the active database of Upload Media, a User may deactivate or delete their account. Even if a Visitor updates or removes their Data from Upload Media’s live database, Data may be retained in Upload Media’s backup files and archives.

Unauthorised Use

Any unauthorised use of Upload Media information systems is a violation of the Agreement and certain laws, including the section 86 of the ECT Act. Such violations may subject the person to civil and criminal penalties.

Intercept and Monitor

Upload Media may intercept, monitor, block, filter, read, delete, and disclose any communication over its information system.


Upload Media is not responsible for, gives no warranties, nor makes any representations in respect of the privacy policies or practices of linked or any third party Websites.

International Visitors

Upload Media may transmit or transfer Personal Information outside the resident jurisdiction of the Visitor and therefore across borders. Personal Information may be stored on servers located outside South Africa in a foreign country whose laws protecting Personal Information may not be as stringent as the laws in South Africa. You consent to us processing your Personal Information in a foreign country whose laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent.


If anyone has any questions or concerns arising from this Privacy Policy or the way in which Upload Media handles Personal Information, please contact Upload Media.
