including those changes.
To explain what we mean by these terms:
“Personal Information” is information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address or phone number.
“Non-Identifying Information” means information that does not permit the identification of an individual person, such as the other information that you provide as part of
registration and personalization of your Mediadogie Profile (for example, individual preferences). Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your
Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip or postal code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be
identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying information (for
example, your viewing preferences).
“Log Data” is derived by our servers automatically as you interact with the Services, which record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. Log Data is
a form of Non-Identifying Information.
WHY DOES MEDIADOGIE COLLECT INFORMATION? Our primary goals in collecting information are to improve our Services, features and content, to administer your use of
our Services, and to deliver content that may be of interest to you.
WHAT INFORMATION DOES MEDIADOGIE COLLECT? We will collect your e-mail address, gender, specific or general location. We will also collect any information you
provide, such as your full name, and any optional information you decide to supply about yourself. If you register for our Services via a Partner Community, we will obtain
certain Personal Information you have provided to the Partner Community (such as your name, e-mail address). The information we obtain may depend on the privacy settings
you have with the Partner Community.
When you enter any information (including Personal Information) into any postings or comments, we may collect this information, which may be available to some, a subgroup
of, or even all Users of the Services, depending on how and where this information was posted by you and with whom you have elected to share the posting or comment.
When you leave us feedback or write to us directly, Face Book, You Tube, Twiter, Etc, we will collect any information that is contained in your feedback form, which will include
your e-mail address and other information that you may submit to us for reference or reply.
As mentioned, when you interact with the Services our servers automatically record Log Data that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. This Log Data may include
information such as your computer’s IP (Internet Protocol) address, your mobile device identifier, the geographic location of the IP address you are using to access the Internet,
browser type, operating system (including identifying whether you are connecting via a mobile device), the time of day of your access, your general physical location or your
more specific location if you are connecting through your mobile device, and the website that you visited immediately prior to StumbleUpon.
HOW DOES STUMBLE UPON USE INFORMATION? We use your Personal Information in some cases in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information to recommend and
deliver to you personalized content from across the web, including from advertisers, based on your expressed preferences and inferred interests. Log Data is used to monitor
and analyze use of the Services, to determine the composition of and engage our user base, to analyze usage patterns, to optimize your access to our Services, and to control
the load on our servers so that we can serve you better. We also combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and Log Data and aggregate it with
information collected from other Users to attempt to provide you with better recommendations, to improve the quality and performance of our Services and to analyze and
understand how our Services are used. We may use your e-mail address to inform you about changes to our Services, and, should you agree to receive such communications
from us, send you newsletters or promotional e-mails about the Services.
HOW CAN YOU EDIT YOUR INFORMATION OR SETTINGS? When you receive newsletters or promotional communications from us, you may indicate a preference to stop
receiving further communications from us and you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the “unsubscribe” instructions provided in the e-mail you receive. We may,

use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request. We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
