What information do we collect?
When you interact with us through the Services, we collect Personal Data and certain other information about you in a few different ways:1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it.
When you register for or use our Service, you voluntarily provide certain information. This can include, without limitation, your name, telephone number, physical address and email address. It may also include other information you provide to us in your other transactions or experiences with Dailybreak or its affiliates, including comments and information you may submit when utilizing the “social networking” aspects of the Service or when emailing us. By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Service, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to our offices and servers and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.2. We collect technical information when you use our Services
As is true of most websites and applications, Dailybreak may gather specific information automatically through the Service. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
- Log data: When you use the Service, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web pages you visited, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, and cookie data. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. The Service may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the website, the number of visitors to each page of the website, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
- Spotlight Tags: Dailybreak may also use spotlight tags, which are transparent GIF files embedded in the Services, to help manage and track the effectiveness of online advertising. Spotlight tags enable the recognition of a unique cookie on your web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to the Services. The cookie would be placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with us. The information that we may collect via spotlight tags and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable.
- Geo-Location Information: Our Services may collect and use your location information (for example, by using the GPS on your mobile device) to provide certain functionality of our Services. If you choose to enable our location features, your location information may be publicly displayed within the Services. Please keep in mind that other users can see this information about you, and they may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities outside of our control and without your knowledge. Your location information may be subject to abuse, misuse, and monitoring by others, so please be careful if you choose to enable location functionality. We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described below.
Sometimes our partners may let us collect information when you use their services, or may share with us the information they collect. For example:
- Some partner sites may run Dailybreak Services, so we may collect log information (described above) from those sites or apps
- Online advertisers typically share information with the websites or apps where they run ads to measure and/or improve those ads. We also receive this information, which may include information like whether clicks on ads led to purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.
How do we use the information we collect?
We use the information we collect to deliver our Services to you, improve them, develop new products, and protect Dailybreak and our users. We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:
- Suggesting content or promotions that you may be interested in based on usage patterns
- Displaying ads you might be interested in
- Responding to your questions or comments
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Dailybreak and its affiliates may also use the information it collects to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.
