We and third-party business partners (including analytics, advertising companies, and similar third parties) may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain information whenever you visit the Service or otherwise interact with us or our content (“Device ID/Interaction Information”). Device ID/Interaction Information may include the hardware model, browser, and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to the Service you are visiting, all the areas within the Service that you visit, the content you view and how you interact with it, your time zone, location information, among other information. In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier for any device you use to access our Service.
We use the following types of tracking technologies (collectively referred to as “Tracking Technologies”) to automatically collect information when you interact with us online:
Web beacons (also known as clear GIFs and pixel tags) are small pieces of code used to collect usage analytics. They help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or not and, if so, how many times. We may use web beacons to establish when an email we have sent you is opened.
Embedded scripts are programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with our Service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our server or a third-party service provider or business partner, is active only while you are connected to the Service and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Session Interactions may be recorded through session replay technology. This captures your interactions with the Service, such as what pages you visit on the Service, how long you visit those pages, and any links you click or information you provide. We use this information for our internal business purposes, such as for website analytics, to improve the Service and our products and services, and to address functionality issues.
In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect Device ID/Interaction Information and similar information for security and fraud detection purposes and to enforce our intellectual property rights.
We may ask you to provide information when you interact with us, including contact information (such as your name and email address), payment information (handled through a third-party payment processor), demographic information (city/state, gender), information about your preferences and interests, information about your vocation or employer, and other personal information you choose to provide.
Feedback, Questionnaires and Surveys. Our Service allows site visitors and customers to participate in surveys and questionnaires, which from time to time we may post on the Service. We also encourage our users to provide feedback to us about our Service. You are free to choose whether you participate in these activities. We may ask that, in addition to providing your responses, you also provide us with your contact information. In these instances, we use any personal information you choose to provide to us in connection with these activities for the purposes for which you submit the information.We aggregate information derived from survey and questionnaire data – with your personal information removed – for monitoring or improving the use and appeal of the Service (with no other obligation to you and, specifically, with no obligation to compensate you for these uses). You are not obligated to participate in any of these activities. Please review the Terms for information on the rights that you grant to us in any content you choose to provide to us.
We may receive information about you from third parties, including business partners. Given the nature of the services we offer, much of the content displayed on our Service is provided to us by third parties. For example, through our relationship with X (Twitter), we have access to information published by users of X (Twitter)’s service, including profile photos, bios, and tweets, and may make that information available to users of our Service. We may combine this information with content provided by other third-party partners, such as the media-outlet evaluation services with which we’ve partnered, in order to provide our overall Service.
You may also have the opportunity to interact with a third-party application, such as on our social media pages. If you choose to utilize such a third-party service, we may receive information about you from that third party service (which may include personal information). If you choose to post information to a third-party platform, that information may be public. Note that – depending on which third-party features we incorporate on our Service – these third-party platforms may be able to collect certain information about your visits to the Service regardless of whether or not you affirmatively interact with them and whether or not you are logged into (or have) an account with the third-party platform.
