You may choose to voluntarily provide other information to us that we do not request, and, in such instances, you are solely responsible for such information.
INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
In addition, we automatically collect information when you use the Site. The categories of information we automatically collect include:
- Service Use Data, including data about features you use, pages you visit, emails, and advertisements you view, products and services you view and purchase, the time of day you browse, and your referring and exiting pages.
- Device Data, including data about your device’s identification number and device type, your device’s operating software, your internet service provider, your device’s regional and language settings, device identifiers such as IP address and Ad Id, your mobile carrier, and your mobile carrier user identification.

COOKIES AND RELATED TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Our Site uses tracking technologies to automatically collect information. The types of tracking technologies we use include:
Log files, which are files that record event that occur in connection with your use of the Site.
Cookies, which are small data files stored on your device that act as a unique tag to identify your browser. We use two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate the Site and can be used to track your session on the Site. They expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies are used to customize our website content for you as an individual, remember your preferences, and support security features. Additionally, persistent cookies allow us to bring you advertising off the Site. Persistent cookies may remain on your device for extended periods of time, and generally may be controlled through your browser settings.
App Technologies, which are technologies included in our apps that are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. For example, our apps include SDKs, including the Facebook SDK, which is code that sends information about your use to a server. These SDKs allow us to track our conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional functionality, such as the ability to connect our Service with your social media account.
Location-Identifying Technologies, which are technologies used to collect your location. For example, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth may be used to collect precise location data when you consent to precise location tracking through our apps. Location data may be used for purposes such as verifying your device’s location and delivering or restricting relevant content and advertising based on that location.
For further information on how we use tracking technologies for analytics and advertising, and your rights and choices regarding them, see the “Analytics and Advertising” and “Your Rights and Choices” sections below.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM OTHER SOURCES
We also collect information from other sources. The categories of sources from which we collect information include:
- Social networks with which you interact.
- Partners that offer co-branded services, sell or distribute our products, or engage in joint marketing activities.
- Publicly available sources, including data in the public domain.
PURPOSE FOR USING YOUR INFORMATION

- To perform services requested by you, such as respond to service requests and support customer needs more efficiently;
- To personalize user experience;
- To send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, information regarding changes to our policies, and support and administrative messages;
- To prevent and address fraud, breach of policies or terms, and threats of harm;
- We use information in the aggregate to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on the Site;
- To conduct research, including focus groups and surveys;
- To improve our Site and other TriviaMaker websites, apps, marketing efforts, products and services;
- To run a promotion, contest, or other Site feature, including verifying your eligibility and delivering prizes in connection with your winning entries;

ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING
We use analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to help us understand how users access and use the Site. In addition, we work with agencies, advertisers, and other technology services to place ads about our products and services on other websites and services. For example, we place ads through Google and Facebook that you may view on their platforms as well as on other websites and services.
As part of this process, we may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, pixels, and web beacons, in the Site, including when you use or interact with our Site, marketing communications, advertising content and/or other websites, in order to provide you with relevant advertising based on your browsing activities and interests across time and services (“Interest-based Advertising”).
We also use audience matching services to reach people (or people similar to people) who have visited our Service or are identified in one or more of our databases (“Matched Ads”). This is done by us uploading a customer list to another party or incorporating a pixel from another party into our own Service, and the other party matching common factors between our data and their data or other datasets. For instance, we incorporate the Facebook pixel on our Service and may share your email address with Facebook as part of our use of Facebook Custom Audiences.
For further information on the types of tracking technologies we use on the Site and your rights and choices regarding analytics, Matched Ads and Interest-based Advertising, please see the “Information Collected Automatically” and “Your Rights and Choices” sections.

Cookies and Pixels. Most browsers accept cookies by default.

Do Not Track. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit.

- Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising
Google provides tools to allow you to opt out of the use of certain information collected by Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and by Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The companies we work with to provide you with targeted ads are required by us to give you the choice to opt out of receiving targeted ads.

You may also limit our use of information collected from or about your mobile device for purposes of serving targeted ads to you by going to your device settings and selecting “Limit Ad Tracking” (for iOS devices) or “Opt Out of Interest-Based Ads” (for Android devices).
Please note that if you opt out using any of these methods, the opt out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any opt out options or programs, or the accuracy of any other entities’ statements regarding their opt-out options or programs.
We implement and maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you.
