Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information.
Marketing and Advertising. From time to time, we may send you updates, alerts, news, and mailings relating matters that we think may be of interest to you. Most messages we send will be via email. For some messages, we may use personal information we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing information to share with you.
If you are in the EEA, we will only send you marketing messages if you have given us your consent to do so. If you do not want to receive messages from us, you will be able to tell us when we first collect your contact details or by refusing or withdrawing your consent. You can also change your preference at a later date by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our messages, visiting our preference settings to adjust your communication preferences, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that if you do opt-out of or do not grant consent to receiving marketing related messages from us, we may still send you non-marketing messages, such as communication relating to the provision of our services.
Internet Based Advertising. We participate in interest-based advertising and use third party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your browsing history. We permit third party online advertising networks, social media companies and other third-party services to collect information about your use of our services over time so that they may play or display ads on our services, on other websites, apps or services you may use, and on other devices you may use. Typically, though not always, the information used for interest-based advertising is collected through cookies or similar tracking technologies. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics and market research.
We may also use certain forms of display advertising and other advanced features through Google, Facebook and other social media sites. These features enable us to use first party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies together to inform, optimize, and display ads based on your past visit to our services. You may control your advertising preferences or opt-out of certain Google advertising products by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager, currently available at https://google.com/ads/preferences or by vising NAI’s online resources at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices
To learn about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of some this advertising, you may wish to visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s online resources, at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices, the DAA’s resources at www.aboutads.info/choices and/or Your Online Choices at www.youronlinechoices.com/uk. Please note that opting-out of receiving interest-based advertising through the NAI’s and DAA’s or Your Online Choices online resource will only opt-out a user from receiving interest-based ads on that specific browser or device, but the user may still receive interest-based ads on his or her other devices. You must perform the opt-out on each browser or device you use.
Some of these opt-outs may not be effective unless your browser is set to accept cookies. If you delete cookies, change your browser setting, switch browsers or computers, or use another operating system, you will need to opt-out again.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information or Recovering Your Password.
You may also send us an e-mail through the “Support” page of this Website or the App to request access to, correct or delete any personal information (including, without limitation, recovery of your password, if any) that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. If you delete your User Contributions from this Website or the App, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or might have been copied or stored by other Website users or may be stored on third party applications, such as Dropbox, Evernote, Adobe or iCloud that you may use to store your User Contributions.
