Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We and our partners, affiliates, and analytics and other providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags, scripts, and SDKs to analyze trends, administer the Wild Sky Media Sites, advertise, and to gather demographic information about our users. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.
Cookies are a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters that help us improve the Wild Sky Media Sites and your experience, see which areas and features of the Wild Sky Media Sites are popular, and count visits. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in the Wild Sky Media Sites or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. An SDK is a piece of computer code that developers include in their mobile applications.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
Wild Sky Media and partners that use Wild Sky Media technology may obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Wild Sky Media Sites or our partners’ services. For example, we may collect information about you from third parties, including but not limited to identity verification services, advertisers, mailing list providers, and publicly available sources.
Wild Sky Media allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Wild Sky Media Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, device, or mobile application, the advertisements and links that appear on the Wild Sky Media Sites or our partners’ sites. These third parties automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, SDKs, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content. Wild Sky Media does not provide any personal information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Wild Sky Media to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the target audience.
USE OF INFORMATION
We use the information we collect to operate, maintain, and provide you the features and functionality of the Wild Sky Media Sites. We also use the information we collect to show ads and report on how they perform, including to show ads that are targeted to users’ interests across their devices, limiting the number of times users see ads, customizing ads to users’ locations, determining how users respond to ads, and reporting on the effectiveness of ads. If you subscribe to one of our newsletters, we will use your email address to deliver that newsletter to your email account. Finally, we use the data we collect to protect the rights of Wild Sky Media and others, including to detect, prevent, investigate, and deter fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
In addition, we may also share aggregated or de-identified information with partners and advertisers which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
