COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your device through your browser. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Site, while others are used to allow us to track your activities related to our Site. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your device when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site.
Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you have closed your browser or turned off your device. Persistent cookies are used, for example, to track information about user activity, and to display advertising, perform analytics and conduct measurement on third-party sites.
Disabling Cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. On most browsers, the Help portion of the toolbar will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Site who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function properly.
Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Site to, among other things, track the activities of Site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Site usage. We and third-parties also use clear GIFs in HTML emails, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.
Cross-Device Tracking. We and our providers may use the personal information we collect about you within our Site and services and on other third-party websites and services to help us and other third parties identify other devices that you use (e.g., a mobile phone, tablet, other computer, etc.) to interact or engage with us or the Site.
Do-Not-Track. Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the “Third-Party Ad Networks” section.
More information about managing cookies can be found in our cookie preference center available here:
THIRD-PARTY AD NETWORKS
Users in the US may opt out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and your choices regarding use of your information by DAA companies.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Site or on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAA, your opt-out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at https://youradchoices.com/.
Our Site may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites.
We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions designed to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that no data security measures can guarantee 100% security.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
The Site is not for use by children, and Pindrop does not knowingly collect, store, share, or use personal information from children. If you are a parent(s) or guardian(s) and your child has provided us with information, please notify Pindrop us, and we will delete all such information.
SMS and Emails. Where lawful to do so, and subject to your consent where required, we may communicate with you by SMS and email to tell you about our solutions and services. If you wish to opt out of receiving marketing communications, please use the ‘unsubscribe’ link provided in our emails or text the STOP number in our SMS, or otherwise contact us directly.
Promotional Email. We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to you. You may opt out of promotional emails by following the opt-out instructions contained in the email. If you opt out of receiving promotional emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you emails about your account or any services you have requested or received from us.
Industry ad choice programs. You can control how participating third-party ad companies use the information that they collect about your visits to our websites and use of our mobile applications, and those of third parties, in order to display more relevant targeted advertising to you. Users in the US can obtain more information and opt out of receiving targeted ads from participating third-party ad networks at aboutads.info/choices (Digital Advertising Alliance). You may also download the DAA AppChoices (https://youradchoices.com/appchoices) tool in order to help control interest-based advertising on apps on your mobile device.
