What We Do with This Information
Data collected by Blocksays are used for the following:
- Contractual obligations, such as processing your registration on our website or giving you notices of policy changes, require us to collect and use your personal data;
- When you ask us to send you marketing information via a medium where we need your permission, such as via mobile push notifications; if you give us permission to place cookies and similar technologies; and if we ask you for permission, for a purpose that we explain at the time, we will use your information in accordance with your permission.
- When it is required by law. If legally, we may also share your personal information with law enforcement or other government agencies, as well as to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Website, limit our legal liability, and protect our rights, as well as to protect visitors of our Website or another audience. Only in those cases will the information be made available.
How We Share Your Personal Information
As long as you’ve provided us with your consent, we won’t sell or give away your personal information for commercial reasons, except for cases when we have received your permission, or in the following situations:
- Investigation, prevention, and action which are all necessitated by the exchange of information about alleged criminal activity, suspected fraud, possible threats to the physical safety of any particular person, violations of Terms of Service, or any other legal needs.
- For research and statistical purposes, we may collect, anonymize, and publish certain data. As an example, we may gather data on the popularity of specific items monitored by users and share it with others. It is impossible to link such data to a specific person in these situations.
Cookies and Web Beacons
When a website sends a cookie to your browser, it includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is stored on your computer’s hard disk. Some Blocksays services require cookies to function. To keep track of your current session, Blocksays and its ad management partners (“Ad Partners”) employ cookies.
Web beacons may also be used by our advertising partners from time to time (which are also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, and clear GIFs). These web beacons are provided by our Ad Partners and allow Ad Partners to collect information such as the IP address of the computer that has downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and information in cookies set by the Ad Partners. A unique cookie on your web browser is recognized by our Ad Partners, which, in its turn, allows us to learn which ad has brought people to our Website.
As a result, the information we gather and exchange via cookies or web beacons is anonymous and unidentified. Neither your name, address, phone number nor e-mail address is included in this information.
With the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, you may choose to opt out of Google Analytics data gathering.
