GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
General Website Visitors/Users
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is that which, without additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person (as opposed to “Personally-Identifying Information” such as name, email, etc). Our company gathers information from users which falls under the “Non-Personally-Identifying Information” category, such as the type of web browser you use, time spent on the website, operating system, pages visited within the site, etc. Please note, while this information is not personally identifying, we may be able to determine a user’s IP address and the general geographic location of the point of connectivity. This information is used to analyze how the website is being used, trends in said usage and target audiences based on current and recent interactions.
This non-personally-identifying information may be released in the form of trend reports, website usage analyses, and marketing case studies.
A “Web Cookie” is a string of information which assigns you a unique identification which is stored on your computer, within your browser and provides information to the website based on your interaction and usage of the site. Cookies are implemented in our Website to track the information/services you have expressed information in or used, to record registration information (provided by you through web submissions) and to keep you logged into the website (if applicable). Cookies allow us to custom tailor offers for you based on the interests you have expressed through visiting various areas of the Website. If you do not wish to have web cookies placed on your computer, you should set your browsers to refuse web cookies before accessing the website, with the understanding that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of said web cookies.

These companies may use non-Personally-Identifying Information to provide ads about goods and services which may be relevant based on your website actions. If you choose to opt-out of third-party ad servers and networks, it is your responsibility to do so prior to visiting the Website.
A “Web Beacon” is an embedded object on a web page or email which allows website operators to check wether a user has viewed a particular page/email. We reserve the right to implement the use of Web Beacons to count users who have visited specific pages, viewed emails and to deliver co-branded services. We may use this information to compile aggregated information about the usage of our site. Web Beacons may not be declined, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining Web Cookies.
We use third-party vendors, including Google, who use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) as well as third-party cookies (such as the Facebook Pixel) together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past website activity. This information is used to better understand the usage of our website and our user’s online activity. If you choose to not send data to Google Analytics, you can opt-out in your web browser or through Google’s Ads Settings.

We also may request further information including your interests and activities, age, gender, date of birth, website URL or other information deemed necessary by Clicked Social for various business offerings and services. This information may be used for analyzing website user demographics, interests and other characteristics to fine-tune future targeting. We reserve the right to communicate (as allowed by the user) with marketing efforts, product and service updates and general, relevant information.

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) protects the online privacy of users under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or maintain information from anyone under the age of 13. Any person who provides Personally-Identifying Information through the Website, represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that information has been collected from a user under the age of 13 through our Website, we will take all appropriate steps to ensure the information is deleted.

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems allow for a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature to be initiated. This prevents data about your online browsing activities from being monitored and collected. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, Clicked Social currently does not respond to DNT browsers or mechanisms.
