You have an issue with the private site.
Are you a member of that site?
The torrents that you get from there will have a unique thing that ID's it as **your** torrent.

If your torrent gets out in the wild (ie via assorted work-arounds of enabling DHT, PEX, etc --- like editing the torrent file, or creating a torrent from the download to upload somewhere else -- or the site sees different userIDs from the same downloader) --- then the site owners generally will kill the torrent.
Many will lock you out if they find your download out there.

They can also kill a torrent if there is a DCMA call -- or a reported flaw --- or a fixed "repack" replacement --- whatever is deemed justification by the **PRIVATE** site.

Anyway, you need to ask your private site about your issue.
