This site collects a limited amount of personally identifiable information from our users and occasionally uses that information for marketing. Readers may opt out of any marketing efforts.


This site uses “cookies” for navigation purposes. These are files that are placed on your hard drive. They help the site recognize repeat visitors — almost all web sites and advertisers use them. Screen & Stream cannot view personal information on your computer via cookies. You can choose not to accept cookies by modifying your browser settings. You may remove any cookie stored on your hard drive by deleting it in your browser’s settings section.

User-submitted names, links and email addresses are collected as is customary in the process of submitting blog comments. Information gathered from comments is used solely to help Screen & Stream protect itself from spam and other abusive posters. We will on occasion use comments and the provided name of the commenter for editorial reasons elsewhere on the site — such as a blog post inspired by the comments. Information provided for comment verification is not sold or shared.

Surveys or contests
From time to time we may provide readers the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address). We will not share your street address or phone number, nor will we share mail addresses gathered via contest entries.

Email marketing lists

If you choose to communicate with us (for reasons other than posting comments or entering contests), we reserve the right to add your information to an email marketing list that could be shared with third parties. If we do share the personally identifiable information you provide, it will be with a responsible and product-appropriate marketing partner. These partners are chosen with care. If you want to opt out of any such list, simply include a statement to that effect along with your email. We do not cooperate with spam operations or similarly objectionable advertisers. We hate them, too.

Communications from the site

If you subscribe to our email service, we will use your address to send content to you (via Feedburner or a similar service). Out of respect for your privacy, each of these email provide you with a way to unsubscribe. No more than 12 times a year, Screen & Stream may choose to communicate with its email subscribers concerning site news, featured content or reader opportunities such as contests and promotions. We reserve the right to share your email address with product-appropriate marketing sponsors as described above.
