Last Revised on September 20, 2023.
Our processing of personal information, such as your name, address, email address, or telephone number, shall be undertaken consistent with the requirements of applicable privacy laws, including, but not limited to, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the UK General Data Protection Regulation (“UK GDPR”), and the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”).
We receive personal information directly from you when you voluntarily provide us with such personal information, including, without limitation, the following:
We may also collect additional information, which may be personal information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent.
In order to access and use certain areas or features of the Memetria Services, you consent to our collection and use of certain information about your use of the Memetria Services through the use of tracking technologies or by other passive means. Your consent to our access and use of this passively collected information includes, but is not limited to, the domain name of the website that allowed you to navigate to the Memetria Services, search engines used, the internet protocol (IP) address used, the length of time spent on the Memetria Services, the pages you looked at on the Memetria Services, other webpages you visited before and after visiting the Memetria Services, the type of internet browser you have, the frequency of your visits to the Memetria Services, and other relevant statistics (collectively, “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be personal information.
We collect information when you use and interact with the Memetria Services, and in some cases from third party sources. Such means of collection include:
We may use tools outlined below in order to provide the Memetria Services, advertise to, and better understand users.
We may use a type of advertising commonly known as interest-based or online behavioral advertising. This means that some of our partners use Tracking Tools to collect information about a user's online activities to display Memetria ads to the user based on the user's interests (“Behavioral Advertising”). Such partners may include third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks or platforms, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers, and other third party service providers (collectively, “Advertising Service Providers”). Other Tracking Tools used by our partners may collect information when you use the Site, such as IP address, mobile device ID, operating system, browser, web page interactions, geographic location and demographic information, such as gender and age range. These Tracking Tools help Memetria learn more about our users' demographics and internet behaviors.
If we process Cookies based on your consent (as indicated at the time of collection of such data), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any point in time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, that if you exercise this right, you may have to then provide your consent on a case-by-case basis for the use by us or disclosure of certain Cookies, if such use or disclosure is necessary to enable you to utilize some or all of our services.
Some web browsers allow you to reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept Memetria’s Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Memetria Services.
You may opt out of receiving certain Cookies and certain trackers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) opt out page, or by installing the DAA’s AppChoice app (for iOS; for Android) on your mobile computing device. When you use these opt-out features, an “opt-out” Cookie will be placed on your computer, tablet or mobile computing device indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertising from NAI or DAA member companies. If you delete Cookies on your computer, tablet or mobile computing device, you may need to opt out again. For information about how to opt out of interest-based advertising on mobile devices, please visit http://www.applicationprivacy.org/expressing-your-behavioral-advertising-choices-on-a-mobile-device. You will need to opt out of each browser and device for which you desire to apply these opt-out features.
Even after opting out of Behavioral Advertising, you may still see Memetria advertisements that are not interest-based (i.e., not targeted toward you). Also, opting out does not mean that Memetria is no longer using Tracking Tools — Memetria still may collect information about your use of the Memetria Services even after you have opted out of Behavioral Advertising and may still serve advertisements to you via the Memetria Services based on information it collects via the Memetria Services.
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to web services that a visitor does not want to have their online activity and behavior tracked. If a web service operator elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the web service operator may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many web service operators, including Memetria, do not proactively respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
We may use information (including information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses the Memetria Services and how we can deliver a better user experience.
We do not engage in automated decision making. We use information, including personal information, to provide the Memetria Services and to help improve the Memetria Services, to develop new services, and to advertise (for example, to display Memetria ads on other web services). Specifically, such use may include:
By providing your e-mail and/or phone number and checking a box, clicking the “complete” button, or some other affirmative act, you are consenting to receive e-mails and/or calls and text messages, including live, prerecorded, and/or automated calls and text messages and alerts, to that phone number. After signing up, you will receive a confirmation e-mail or text message from Memetria on your mobile number. This agreement is not entered into as a term or requirement of any purchase or promotion. Normal message and data rates may apply. Message frequency may vary. Neither we nor the participating carriers guarantee that messages will be delivered. We may discontinue these programs at any time without notice.
In certain circumstances, and in order to perform the Memetria Services, we may share certain information that we collect from you, as described in this section:
Please note that any information you send to us electronically, while using the Memetria Services or otherwise interacting with us, may not be secure when it is transmitted to us. We recommend that you do not use unsecure channels to communicate sensitive or confidential information to us. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee “perfect security.” Any information you send us through any means is transmitted at your own risk.
You can always choose whether or not to provide personal information through the Memetria Services. However, if you choose not to disclose certain personal information, you may have limited access to certain portions of the Memetria Services. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights, including otherwise denying you goods or services, providing you with a different level or quality of services, or charging you different prices or rates for services.
