All Users, Including End Users and Website Users
How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals
Your iOS mobile device may provide a “Limit Ad Tracking” setting. On Android devices, your settings may allow you to “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads.” When you have opted out using one of these settings on a device, we will not use in-app information collected from that device to infer your interests or serve ads to that device that are targeted based on your inferred interests. Your web browser may also provide a “Do Not Track” browser setting. When you have enabled this setting in your browser, we will not use web browsing information from that browser to infer your interests or serve ads to that device that are targeting based on your inferred interests.
The activities of any third parties are subject to their own privacy policies and are not covered by this policy.
Data Collection Technologies
The technologies for data collection may include:
• Other Technologies. Pages of our the Website and our emails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs. pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
We also use Google’s remarketing, feature in Google Ads that allows Chalk to reach people who previously visited the website and match the right people with the right ad-message.

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
• To our subsidiaries and affiliates;
• To contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them;
• To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Company’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by the Company about end users or our Website users is among the assets transferred;
• To fulfil the purpose for which you provide it;
• For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information; or
• With your consent.
We may also disclose your personal information:
• To comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request;

Opting out of the Digital advertising service powered by Chalk Digital
Chalk Digital has created a technology that enables advertisers to place advertisements for their product or services on websites and mobile apps where you may visit. Cookies and other non-cookie technologies such as web beacons or tags, statistical identifiers and/or mobile advertising ID (e.g., Apple’s IDFA) are used to measure the effectiveness of these ads and to determine the display of content and advertising to you based on your interests both on third-party sites and mobile apps where you may visit. To support this interest-based advertising solution, we, and companies who we have contracted with, may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our and other Web sites. The information collected does not enable any third-party to identify or contact you individually, without appropriate notice or consent. Although it is our hope that you find the display of advertising to you based on your non-personally identifying browsing interests valuable, if you would prefer not to participate in the services offered through these solutions, you can always opt-out of this activity by visiting https://geoad.chalkdigital.com/#/mobile/opt/page
Please keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these non-cookie technologies, and those browser settings that block cookies may have no effect on such techniques.
If you prefer not to receive interest-based- mobile advertising from Chalk Digital, you can opt out of this advertising at any time by going to the Opt-Out page and submitting your device ID. To do that please go to https://geoad.chalkdigital.com/#/mobile/opt/page
Please note that if you opt out of the interest-based ads, the user will see ads, but they will not be relevant.
Opting out of Third-Party tracking
When you visit a website utilizing any browser, you automatically share information with that website, such as cookies, your IP address, and other information. If the website contains content provided by a third-party website some information about you may be automatically sent to the content provider. When you utilize the “Do-Not-Track” feature in your web browser, that browser will send a “Do-Not-Track” request to the websites you visit and to the third-party content hosted on those sites to let the sites know that you would prefer not to be tracked. Websites may continue to engage in tracking activities even though you have expressed this preference.
We adhere to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising and participate in the opt-out programs established by the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA).
