Information Shared With Our Service Providers
We may hire third party service providers to work with us, in order to improve our website, or software, or the Advertising Services that we provide to our customers. These service providers sometimes will have access to the information we store about consumers but only Non-PII and only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf.
Information Shared with our Marketing Partners
The Non-PII that we receive from our Marketing Partners’ websites is sometimes shared back with the Marketing Partner that permitted us to collect the Non-PII. Thus, if one of our Marketing Partners allows us to collect information about visitors to its website or mobile app, that Marketing Partner may also ask us to send that information back to them for their own purposes.
Information Shared in Aggregated or Anonymized Form
We sometimes make our information available, in aggregated or anonymized format, to our advertising clients, business partners, and other third parties, for information analysis purposes. Aggregated and anonymized information does not contain PII.
Information Shared in a Change of Ownership
Information that we collect from our Marketing Partners is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction (such as a merger, acquisition, or asset sale) your information may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others
It is our policy to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal system, whether by individuals, entities, or governments, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties where appropriate. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary: (i) to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation, or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants, or court orders; (ii) to protect our property, rights, and safety and the rights, property and safety of third parties, or the public in general; and (iii) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
