Please note that as a visitor to this Site we may collect information about you. This policy explains:
– What information we might collect about you
– How we might use that information
– When we might use your details to contact you
– What information of yours we might share with others
– Your choices about the personal information you give us

First and foremost, as noted above not all information you give to us is completely controlled by these terms. For example, as noted above our services sometimes link to other companies’ services, or affiliates; like articles published on other sites. Those companies have their own privacy and cookies policies, so remember that the information you give them will follow their rules and not ours. Similarly, if you access this Site from other websites or links – those other sites may manage your information differently, which is likewise not something under this policy’s terms.

Also you should be aware, we are committed to keeping your information safe. And to do this we design our services with your safety in mind. We are dedicated to looking after your information security and privacy. At the same time, no service can be completely secure – if you have any concerns that your personal information has been put at risk, for example if someone could have found out your password to one of the products or services you procured on this Site, please get in touch with us straight away.

So, what do we collect from you?
A. Information that you give us
We might ask for your name and contact details, or your date of birth, depending on what you’re doing. Information you give us might include information in a comment or video clip (a “creation”) you share with us, such as people’s names that appear in the creation.
B. Device information
Devices are lots of things like: your computer, your mobile or cell phone, or your tablet. We automatically collect some technical information from these devices and web browsers when you visit this Site. This might include: IP (internet protocol) address, device ID, app ID, vendor ID, and advertising ID.
C. Information on your activities outside the Site when you talk about us, like if you’ve mentioned us in an X (formally known as Twitter) post, we’ll collect your X handle.
D. Information on how you use our services, like the articles you read.

How long will we keep the information and how do you use it?
It really depends. In general, we only hold your information for as long as we need it to do the activities we told you about, or if we have a valid reason to keep it. We think about what type of information it is, the amount collected, how sensitive it might be and any legal requirements when we make retention decisions. We design our services so that we don’t hold your information any longer than we have to.

In fact, to supplement the retention of your personal information guidelines we adhere to above, we must have a valid reason to use your personal information at all. It’s called the “lawful basis for processing”. Sometimes we might ask your permission to do things, like when you subscribe to a newsletter. Other times, when you’d reasonably expect us to use your personal information, we don’t ask your permission, but only when: the law says it’s fine to use it, and it fits with the rights you have.

To give you further context, we use your information for these types of things:
A. to deliver our services and to provide you with information about them;
B. to send you emails with news, offers and promotions;
C. to deal with your requests, complaints and enquiries;
D. to personalize your experience and our marketing communications;
E. to update you on any changes to our policies, practices and updates to our Website Terms of Use;
F. to check with you about any service or activity you’ve signed up for;
G. to contact you about a creation you sent us, like videos you might share with us;
H. to answer you when you’ve contacted us, or to respond to a comment or complaint;
I. to invite you to take part in surveys about our services, which are always voluntary;
J. for marketing purposes; and/or
K. to send you notifications on your device depending on your settings

Please know, we’ll only contact you when we need to or when you’ve given us permission and we’ll never contact you to ask for your Site account password.

What about other entities and cookies?
We share your information with others in these ways:
A. When you make something public, like post a comment which the public can see.
B. When we use other companies to power our services. What we mean here is that, in order for us to give you quality experiences and to understand how you’re using our services we often use other companies to process your personal information on our behalf. For example, we may use a third party that assists us in sending you emails about things we think might interest you, or analyzing data on how people use our digital services so we can improve them.
We make sure that your personal information is looked after as if we were handling it directly when these third-parties are engaged. We carefully select these companies, only share with them what they need to do the work and we make sure they keep your information secure.
C. When advertising companies buy ad space and personalize their advertising. As touched on in point b of this section above, we sometimes work with advertising and data companies to sell and deliver ads, and keep track of how they did. Some of these ads are personalized to you using your privacy data. Generally, these companies act as separate data controllers, or they might control your data on behalf of their advertiser client rather than us. We don’t share your account data with them.
D. When we do collaborative research. For further context, we will, sometimes collaborates with research partners. Every now and then we share data with them. This might include information we’ve collected about you. But we’re careful about what we share and what our research partners can do with it.
E. Sometimes by law we have to pass on your information to other organizations and we might also share your information if we have to by law, or when we need to protect you or other people from harm.
F. Similar to other entity sharing, we also use cookies and similar tracking technology. In short, cookies are small text files which are transferred to your computer or mobile devoce when you visit a website or app. There are also similar pieces of tracking information we collect.

We use cookies and other tracking to do a few different things: to remember information about you, so you don’t have to give it to us again. And again. And again; to keep you signed in, even on different devices; to help us understand how people are using our services, so we can make them better; to deliver advertising; to help us personalize the Site to you by remembering your preferences and settings, and to find out if our emails have been read and if you find them useful.

Are there different types of cookies?
Yes! Some cookies are always on when you visit us, and you can’t turn them off unless you change your browser settings. We call these “strictly necessary cookies”. We use them to make sure our digital services work correctly and are meeting audience needs and interests. We also use functional, performance and advertising cookies to make your experience more enjoyable. You can switch these on or off at any time and you can always change your mind. We’ll only use them if you’ve agreed. Bear in mind there are some other cookies out there from other companies. These “third-party cookies” might track how you use different websites, including ours. For example, you might get a social media company’s cookie when you see the option to share something. You can turn them off, but not through us.

How long do cookies last?
Some are erased when you close the browser on your website or app. Others stay longer, sometimes forever, and are saved onto your device so that they’re there when you come back.

How do I control my cookies and tracking?
Strictly necessary cookies are always on when you visit us. On your first visit to us, we’ll tell you about our other types of cookies and ask you to choose which cookies we can use. You can always change your mind by going to your settings. Stopping all cookies might mean you can’t access some of our services, or that some of them might not work properly for you. Another way to control some tracking is in the settings on your device.

What are my rights and will this policy change?
You are in control of your personal information. Therefore, you have the right to: request a copy of your information in our possession; not let robots make big decisions about you; to ask us to correct information that’s wrong, to delete it or to request that we only use it for certain purposes; to change your mind, and ask us to stop using your information. For example, unsubscribing from any marketing emails or turning off personalization; and opt out from personalized advertising cookies and other tracking
Signed in users can also opt out of the use of registration data for advertising purposes by turning off personalization in their account settings.

Bear in mind, sometimes we might not be able to help. Like if the law tells us we can’t.

Finally, please know, we will always seek to use your data for valid legal purposes in accordance with the applicable privacy laws throughout the globe, and restrict our use to the extent that you request. Given the way that privacy law is being litigated, is evolving and is changing, you should be aware that this Site may change this policy at any time to comport with applicable privacy law. If we make important changes, like how we use your personal information, we’ll let you know. It might be a notice, an email or a message in your app. If you don’t agree to the changes, then you can always stop using our services, delete your account, and stop giving us any more personal information. We’d be sorry to see you go.
