What User Data We Collect

We use third party services, such as Google Analytics, to grow our business, to improve and develop our Services, to monitor and analyze use of our Services, to aid our technical administration, and to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Services. These services may collect and retain some information about you, such as the IP address assigned to you on the date you use the Services, but not your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of these services with your Personal Information. Although these services may plant a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you use the Services, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. The Google Analytics services’ ability to use and share information about your use of the Services is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You may find additional information about Google Analytics at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. Finally, you can opt out of Google Analytics by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

Advertisers

We allow advertisers and/or merchant partners (“Advertisers”) to choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers and you agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to an Advertiser, in order for that Advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements and/or offers. For example, we might use the fact you are located in San Francisco to show you ads or offers for San Francisco businesses, but we will not tell such businesses who you are. Or, we might allow Advertisers to display their ads to users with similar usage patterns to yours, but we will not disclose usage information to Advertisers except in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. Note that if an advertiser asks us to show an ad to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that ad, the advertiser may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.

Because the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) defines “sell” and “personal information” very broadly, our use of advertising and analytics providers on our websites and apps, which allows those providers to collect information such as IP addresses, cookie IDs, and mobile IDs, may be considered a “sale” of personal information under those definitions.We may use third party analytics and advertising services, such as Google Analytics and the Google Analytics Remarketing and Advertising Reporting Feature, to grow our business, to improve and develop our Services, to monitor and analyze use of our Services, to aid our technical administration, to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Services, to verify that users have the authorization needed for us to process their requests, and to advertise online.These third-party services collect and retain information about you associated with mobile advertising identifiers and/or cookie identifiers. Because these third parties provide these services to many companies, they can compile information about your online activities over time and across different websites. They use this information to select advertising based on what is relevant to you; to improve reporting on campaign performance; and to avoid showing you ads that you have already seen. Third-party vendors, including Google, may show our ads on sites across the Internet. We and third-party vendors, including Google, may use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and display ads based your previous visits to our website; and to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our site.
