By accessing and using the Services, you consent to our collection, use, and sharing of your information and data, and other activities as described below.
1. What Information Do the Services Collect?
(a) Information We Collect About You
We may obtain information that can reasonably be used to identify an individual ("Personal Information") in the form of: (i) information provided during the Services online registration process, which might include your name, company name, email address, phone number, billing address, credit card information, geographic location, and industry; (ii) Personal Information you provide when you contact us, and (iii) Personal Information you provide when you otherwise interact with the Services. We also may obtain Personal Information provided by Publishers about prospective subscribers, pursuant to permission obtained by Publishers, which we use to reach out to prospective subscribers. If a prospective subscriber chooses not to register to use the Services, we will not use or share any Personal Information relating to the prospective subscriber.
We may obtain from Publishers: (i) subscriber information, which might include Personal Information ("Subscriber Information", and, together with Personal Information, "User Information"), and (ii) the username and password for any email account used by a Publisher to provide any Subscriber Information in connection with use of the Services.
(b) Information Collected or Stored as You Access and Use the Services
In addition to any information, including User Information, that we receive as described above, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) store or collect certain information whenever you interact with the Services ("Usage Information"). This Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone, or other device (a "Device") whenever you interact with the Services. To the extent we associate Usage Information with User Information we collect directly from you through the Services, we will treat it as User Information.
This Usage Information may include:
- your IP address, UDID or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier"). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Services, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier;
- your Device functionality (including browser, operating system, hardware, mobile network information);
- the URL that referred you to the Services;
- the areas within the Services that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences;
- your Device location;
- your Device characteristics; and
- certain other Device data, including the time of day, among other information.
Tracking Technologies. We may use various methods and technologies to store or collect Usage Information ("Tracking Technologies"). Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter, or modify settings or configurations on your Device. A few of the Tracking Technologies include, without limitation, the following (and subsequent technology and methods later developed):
Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Services. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built into or downloaded by you to your Device. HTML5 cookies can be programmed through HTML5 local storage.
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as "1x1 GIFs" or "clear GIFs") may be included in the Services’ pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Services, to monitor how users navigate the Services, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Services, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Browser Fingerprinting. Collection and analysis of information from your Device, such as, without limitation, your operating system, plug-ins, system fonts, and other data, for purposes of identification.
ETag, or Entity Tag. A feature of the cache in browsers. It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner, ETags are a form of Device Identifier. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.
Recognition Technologies. Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices in the same user).
Tracking Technologies Usage. We may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:
Targeting-Related. We may use Tracking Technologies to deliver content relevant to your interests on the Services and third-party websites based on how you interact with our content. This includes using Tracking Technologies to understand the usefulness to you of the content that has been delivered to you.

4. What About Information I Disclose Publicly or to Others?
The Services may permit you to submit text, ideas, photographs, user profiles, writings, pictures, data, questions, comments, suggestions, or other content, including User Information (collectively, "User Content"). We or others may store, display, reproduce, publish, distribute, or otherwise use User Content online or offline in any media or format (currently existing or hereafter developed) and may or may not attribute it to you. Others may have access to this User Content and may have the ability to share it with third parties. Please think carefully before deciding what information you share, including User Information, in connection with your User Content. Please note that we do not control who will have access to the information that you choose to make public, and cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy or keep it secure. We are not responsible for the privacy or security of any information that you make publicly available on the Services or what others do with information you share with them on the Services.

5. Does Third-Party Content or Links to Third-Party Websites Appear on the Services?
The Services may contain content that is supplied by a third party, and those third parties may collect Usage Information and your Device Identifier. In addition, when you use the Services you may be directed to other services that are operated and controlled by third parties that we do not control. We are not responsible for the data collection and privacy practices employed by any of these third parties or their services, and they may be tracking you across multiple websites and may be sharing the results of that tracking with us and/or others. For example, if you "click" on a link, the "click" may take you onto a different website. These other websites may associate their Tracking Technologies with you, independently collect data about you or others, including User Information, and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. We encourage you to note when you leave the Services and to review the third-party privacy policies of all third-party websites and exercise caution in connection with them.

In the event that we become aware that we have collected personal information from any child, we will dispose of that information in accordance with COPPA and other applicable laws and regulations.

However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission, or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Services and provide us with your information at your own risk.
