The Service may contain features or links to web sites and services provided by third parties.

We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through the Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.
7. INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING
Interest-based advertising is the collection of data from different sources and across different platforms in order to predict an individual’s preferences or interest and to deliver to that individual, or his/her computer, or mobile device, advertising based on his/her assumed preference or interest inferred from the collection of data pertaining to that individual or others who may have a similar profile or similar interests.
We work with a variety of third parties to attempt to understand the profiles of the individuals who are most likely to be interested in the Inspectagram products or services so that we can send them promotional emails, or serve our advertisements to them on the websites and mobile apps of other entities.
These third parties include: (i) advertising networks, which collect information about a person’s interests when that person views or interacts with one of their advertisements; (ii) attribution partners, which measure the effectiveness of certain advertisements; and (iii) business partners, which collect information when a person views or interacts with one of their advertisements.
In collaboration with these third parties, we collect information about our customers, prospects and other individuals over time and across different platforms when they use these platforms or interact with them. Individuals may submit information directly on our Sites or on platforms run by third parties, or by interacting with us, our advertisements, or emails they receive from us or from third parties. We may use special tools that are commonly used for this purpose, such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags, mobile advertising IDs, flash cookies, and similar technologies. We may have access to databases of information collected by our business partners.
The information we or third party collect enables us to learn what purchases the person made, what ads or content the person sees, on which ads or links the person clicks, and other actions that the person takes on our Sites, or in response to our emails, or when visiting or using third parties’ platforms.
We, or the third parties with which we work, use the information collected as described above to understand the various activities and behaviors of our customers, Site visitors and others. We, or these third parties, do this for many reasons, including: to recognize new or past visitors to our Sites; to present more personalized content; to provide more useful and relevant ads - for example, if we know what ads you are shown we can try not to show you the same ones repeatedly; to identify visitors across devices, sales channels, third party websites and Sites, or to display or send personalized or targeted ads and other custom content that is more focused on a person’s perceived interest in products or services similar to those that we offer.
Our interest-based ads may be served to you in emails or on third-party platforms. We may serve these ads about our products or services or send commercial communications directly ourselves or through these third parties.
Visitors may opt-out of receiving interest-based advertising by advertising networks that may be delivered to them on our platform and other websites by visiting the following websites: https://youradchoices.com/control; and https://thenai.org/. These features will opt a Visitor out of many – but not all - of the interest-based advertising activities in which we or third parties engage.
9. DO NOT TRACK POLICY
Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret “Do Not Track” signals, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals. We continue to work with the online industry to define a common understanding of how to treat “Do Not Track” signals.
In the meantime, you may opt-out of receiving interest-based advertising from advertising networks that may be delivered on our platform and other websites by visiting the following websites. If you want to opt-out of this online behavioural advertising, visit the following sites: https://youradchoices.com/control and https://thenai.org/.
This will opt you out of many – but not all - of the interest-based advertising activities in which we or third parties engage. Choices you make may be browser and device-specific. If you delete your cookies or use a different browser or a different computer or device, you may need to update your opt-out choices. Other third-party Sites provide visitors with the ability to opt out of receiving interest-based ads on their Sites that you need to control through your settings on that Site. For example, to opt out of Google’s use of your online behaviour for advertising purposes, visit Google’s Ad Settings page.
10. THIRD-PARTY COOKIES
The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your interests or preferences so that they can display advertisements or promotional material on this Site and on other sites across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.
The business partners and advertising networks that serve interest-based advertisements on the Services have limited access to a small amount of information about your profile and your device, which is necessary to serve you advertisements that are tailored to your apparent interests. It is possible that they may reuse this small amount of information on other sites or services.
We do not share with these third parties any information that would readily identify you (such as email address); however, these third parties may have access to information about your device (such as IP or MAC address). We do not have access to, or control over, the technologies that these third parties may use to collect information about your interests, and the information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Other than as discussed in this Policy, we have no control over these third parties.
The following types of cookies may be used in connection with the Site:
1. strictly necessary/essential cookies - These cookies are essential in order to enable a visitor to move around a website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, requested services cannot be provided. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor.
2. performance cookies - These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
3. functionality cookies - These cookies allow the website to remember choices that a visitor makes (such as their user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide a visitor with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes a visitor has made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that the visitor can customize. They may also be used to provide services a visitor has asked for (such as watching a video or commenting on a blog). The information these cookies collect may potentially be anonymized so that they cannot track a visitor’s browsing activity on other websites.
4. behaviourally targeted advertising cookies - These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to a visitor and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a visitor sees an advertisement, as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that a visitor has visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization.
11. MINORS AND CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Our Service is not directed to children under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 18 without obtaining parental consent. If you are under 18 years of age, then please do not use or access the Service at any time or in any manner. If we learn that Personal Information has been collected on the Service from persons under 18 years of age and without verifiable parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under 18 years of age has obtained an Account on the Service, then you may alert us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request that we delete that the child’s Personal Information from our systems.
The Service is not intended to be used by minors, and is not intended to be used to post content to share publicly or with friends.

If you have any question regarding this topic, please contact us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section. Please be aware that, although we offer this deletion capability, the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information.
12. YOUR CONSENT IS IMPORTANT TO US
It is important to us that we collect, use or disclose your Personal Information where we have your consent to do so. Depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information, your consent may be implied, deemed (using an opt-out mechanism) or express. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from your action or inaction. For example, when you enter into an agreement with us, we will assume your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information for purposes related to the performance of that agreement and for any other purposes identified to you at the relevant time.
Typically, we will seek your consent at the time that we collect your Personal Information. In certain circumstances, your consent may be obtained after collection but prior to our use or disclosure of your Personal Information. If we plan to use or disclose your Personal Information for a purpose not previously identified (either in this Policy or separately), we will endeavor to advise you of that purpose before such use or disclosure.
As we have described above, we may collect, use or disclose your Personal Information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required to do so by applicable law or regulatory requirements.
Further to Section 5.3 above, you may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual obligations and reasonable notice, by contacting our Privacy Officer using the contact information set out below. All communications with respect to such withdrawal or variation of consent should be in writing and addressed to our Privacy Officer. In certain circumstances, the withdrawal of consent may render us unable to continue to provide products or services where the collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information is necessary to provide the product or service.
14. DATA SECURITY
We endeavor to maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Information under our custody and control against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, please advise our Privacy Officer immediately of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of Personal Information that is in our custody or control.
15. DATA RETENTION
We only retain the Personal Information collected from a User for as long as the User’s account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required or permitted by applicable law. We will retain and use your Personal Information as permitted by law or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and/or enforce our rights.
Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to certain Personal Information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on the Service. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Further, even after information posted on the Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the Service. We cannot and do not guarantee that the information you post on or transmit to the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
17. DATA TRANSFER TO FOREIGN JURISDICTIONS
As above, we may share your Personal Information from time to time with our service providers so that we may operate our business. Accordingly, your Personal Information may be collected, used, processed, stored or disclosed in the United States. As such, your personal information may potentially be accessible to law enforcement and national security authorities of that jurisdiction.
