Your EU and Other Privacy Rights

You have the following rights, where provided under applicable law, regarding your information (each of which are subject to various exceptions and limitations):

  1. The right to be informed: You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this Privacy Policy.
  2. The right of access: You have the right to obtain access to your information (if we are processing it), and other certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy). This is so you are aware and can check that we are using your information in accordance with data protection law.
  3. The right to rectification: You are entitled to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  4. The right to erasure: This is also known as “the right to be forgotten” and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
  5. The right to restrict processing: You have rights to “block” or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be “blocked” to make sure the restriction is respected in the future.
  6. The right to data portability: You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services and platforms.
  7. The right to object: You have the right to object to certain types of processing, in particular processing based on our legitimate interests. You also can object at any time to your information being used for direct marketing purposes (including profiling related to such direct marketing). Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint or believe our processing of your information does not comply with data protection law, you can make a complaint to an EU data protection authority.

We will retain your personal information for as long as needed to provide you with any services which you request. We will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We process your personal data where you have consented, where it is necessary to perform our contract with you, to perform our legal obligations, and/or for the purposes of our legitimate interests.

Please note your rights in relation to your personal data are not absolute. We may, for example, deny you access to your personal data when required or authorized by law, or if granting access would have an unreasonable impact on another individual’s privacy. 

Our Ads

Third parties advertise on our platforms, and we also contract with third parties to serve ads across the internet and across multiple devices. The ads we serve may be based on tracking activities, as described in more detail here.


We use industry standard security measures to protect our platforms. However, we cannot guarantee that the Internet or your use of our platforms will be completely secure. We encourage you to take steps to protect yourself online. For example, do not share your password with other people including ensuring that any online account information you have remains secure.

About Children

Our platforms are not created for children. We do not believe children are interested in our platforms, and do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and think we have information about your child who is under 13, please contact us at [email protected]. To learn more about how to protect your child online, visit the FTC’s website and read the helpful information provided by the FTC.


Our platforms contain links to third-party sites. If you click on one of those links, you will be taken to sites we do not control. This policy does not apply to the information practices of those sites. You should read the privacy policy of other sites carefully. We are not responsible for such third-party sites.

Non-U.S. Users

Our platforms are operated in the United States and other countries located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and are subject to United States laws. If you are located outside the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to or processed in the United States or other countries located outside the EEA. The standard of data protection in the United States and in certain other countries where we may process your information is considered by the European Commission to be not adequate when compared to the date protection standards of the EU and EEA. Please also be aware that by using our platforms and giving us your information, you consent to such transfer.

Policy Updates

From time to time, we may change our privacy practices. The latest version of this policy will be posted here. If there is a material change to this policy that we plan to apply retroactively, we will notify you as required by law. Please check our platforms periodically for updates.
