Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information that you previously submitted voluntarily.
Most web browsers allow you to control cookie functionality, including selecting which cookies are accepted or not accepted and removing them. You may set most web browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you may need to re-enter your Personal Information to gain access to certain parts of our Site or features of our Service that require such Personal Information.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information and Personal Information in the course of providing the Service

We may also collect other Non-Personal Information such as the time spent viewing an ad, the number of ads clicked and other information about your interaction with the ads or content. The purpose of this is to enable publishers and advertisers to use information from our Service to provide users with relevant content that will enhance their user experience through targeted advertising. To improve the success of advertising campaigns and as a part of these services, we use a number of technologies to recognize when your mobile device, tablet device or personal computer views one of our participating web site’s advertisements. We also provide reports to our publishers and advertisers, to develop aggregate and anonymous statistics for distribution and to disclose and to share such information for any other business reason.
If you wish to do so, you may disable our ability to recognize this unique ID file by following the directions contained in the Opt-out section below.
The data we store in relation to your unique ID is automatically deleted after 90 days of your inactivity using our Service. Aggregated statistical information that is derived from the unique ID, such as the popularity of a client’s campaign, may be retained as necessary to comply with our contractual and legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Collection and Use of Location-Based Information in the course of providing the Service
Some telecommunication service providers are required to record the physical location of all devices that use their service. It is possible that GoldSpot Media will receive this information.

This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp.

Uses of Personal Information
We may use Personal Information and other information received and collected from you to provide the services you have requested, including services that display customized content and to contact you upon your request and when otherwise necessary.
We may also use Personal Information for auditing, research and analysis, and to operate and improve our services. In certain circumstances, we may share non-personal information with third parties such as publishers and advertisers.
We may combine any information obtained from one source with other information about you that we receive from other sources, both on and offline, to improve the quality of our products and services and enhance your experience. Further we may combine Non-Personal Information, such as browsing history or location, with Personal Information, such as an email address or phone number, for purposes including providing customer service, and tailoring our advertising, communications, offerings, web pages and/or website experience to you. In all situations and circumstances where we combine Personal Information with Non-Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information to the extent and for the duration it remains combined.
Uses of Non-Personal Information
We use Non-Personal Information collected through our applications to:
- Report the aggregated performance of a media campaign compared to the advertiser’s goals and optimize the creative used in their campaigns;
- Help advertisers display advertisements that may be of interest to you by targeting you in a personalized manner; and
- Select the best ads to serve, including by limiting or eliminating repetitions of ads.
- We share Non-Personal Information with our clients such as advertisers, agency-side advertising platforms, publishers and networks. Our clients represent to us that they comply with applicable laws and standards regarding privacy.
Confidentiality and Security
We will keep confidential and protect your Personal Information except where disclosure is required or permitted by law. We may disclose any information we have to government authorities, and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities or otherwise as required or permitted by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas. We also may disclose information in connection with investigations, for example if we believe in good faith it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our rights or property, or as otherwise required by law.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and, once we receive it, or storage and disposal. When you enter sensitive information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information. All information we gather is securely stored within databases controlled by us. The databases are stored on servers secured behind a firewall; access to the servers is passwor
d-protected and is strictly limited. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We limit access to Personal Information to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
Third parties provide certain services available on our Service and on our behalf. We may provide information, including Personal Information, to third-party service providers to help us deliver our products, information, and our Service efficiently and effectively. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that our third-party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on our behalf through confidentiality agreements and otherwise. We do not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on our behalf unless such transfer is legally required.
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information, we may transfer that Personal Information from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. Your Personal Information may be collected and stored by us on servers located outside your country or jurisdiction.
Third Party Websites
We may contact you using the Personal Information you have given us:
In relation to the functioning of any service you have signed up for in order to ensure that we can deliver the services to you;
Where you have opted to receive further correspondence;
To invite you to participate in surveys about the our services (participation is always voluntary); and
To provide you information about our new products and services, where you have specifically agreed to receive this.
Change of Control
Opt-out for unique ID recognition process
While we believe that our products, applications and services enhance the experience for the user by limiting the repetitiveness of advertising and increasing the level of relevant content on the web, we respect the fact that users may not want anonymous data or Non-Personal Information that concerns them to be collected. For this reason, we have created a method by which you can opt out of our Service associating your device’s browser, IP information and unique ID with the unique ID file that our Service creates, even if you have previously consented to us accessing such data.
You may opt-out by using the opt-out utility below. Please note that this link must be accessed from the mobile phone, tablet device, or personal computer that you wish the opt-out utility to be effective on – you can type it directly into your browser, or if your device supports email, you can copy and send it to yourself in an email and then click on it.
If you have opted out, we will not use our applications to apply targeting that relies on the unique ID of your device or otherwise use data concerning your device other than to implement your opt out decision. Opting-out does not stop advertisements from being served to your device. Rather, it prevents us from associating your personal data with your device or your device’s browser starting from the time you implement the opt-out utility. It does not affect data collected prior to that time.
