This MediaFire Privacy Policy, in conjunction with the Terms of Service and any End User License Agreement (EULA) accepted by you, and other terms and conditions of use which are incorporated herein by reference and may be posted and applicable to specific services, governs your use of the MediaFire website and are collectively referred to as the "Agreement". MediaFire may modify the Agreement which will become effective immediately upon posting on the website. Your continued use of the website and any associated services, the "Services", indicates your acceptance of the Agreement.

Any Content uploaded by you to MediaFire becomes published Content and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Policy.

Information may be collected from you in various ways when you use our Services. We automatically receive certain types of information when you interact with our Web pages, apps, services and communications. This information includes your computer, tablet, mobile or other digital device's IP address, access times, your browser type and language. We may also collect information about the type of operating system you use, your account activity, and accessed pages.

We may ask for some personal information when you create an account, including, but not limited to, your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. You are solely responsible for safeguarding the secrecy of your password. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about you. You may review, update, correct or delete personal information or your account on your My Account page. Since our Services are not directed to persons under 13, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that "his" child has provided us with personal information without their consent, "he" should delete the account. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will suspend the account. For assistance, contact our support department.

Your personal information may be used to correspond with you via email, offer software updates, and enable you to communicate, collaborate and share files. When you choose to collaborate or share files with others, MediaFire will collect the email addresses and information of the other parties.
