6. Non-Personal Data We Collect from You
6.1. Non-Personal Data. Non-Personal Data means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Non-Personal Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons.
6.2. Log Data. When you visit the Site, we automatically collect technical and statistical data about your visit, such as your browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data, the pages you visit and any search terms you use (“Log Data”).
6.3. IP Address. We also collect your public IP address when you visit the Site. We may use your public IP address in order to determine whether certain requests are fraudulent or frivolous and we may automatically cross-reference your public IP address with your domain name (usually the domain name of your ISP or employer). Because you may be visiting the Site from your personal residence (for example, because you are telecommuting), your IP address and any associated domain name are treated as “Personal Network Information” instead of Personal Data. “Log Data” does not include Personal Network Information. Although such Personal Network Information may be used to administer and maintain the Site and Services, it is not shared with any third parties, except as described below in the sections titled “Service Providers,” “Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement” and “Business Transfers”. We will use Log Data for any purpose.
PLEASE NOTE: DEPENDING ON YOUR JURISDICTION YOUR IP ADDRESS MAY BE CONSIDERED PERSONAL DATA. IN ALL SUCH CASES IT WILL BE ACCORDINGLY TREATED AS SUCH.
– Some of our cookies may collect your Personal Data. Specifically, Talkable may utilize uuid cookies, which may collect your first name, last name, email address, Custom Attributes, or IP address.
6.5. Web Beacons/Tags. We automatically collect aggregate anonymous information through web beacons. Website beacons allow third parties to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us.
6.6. Use of Non-Personal Data. We may also use your Log Data and Personal Network Information to: (i) administer our Site and Services for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes; (ii) improve our Site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your device; (iii) allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service and Site, when you choose to do so; (iv) as part of our efforts to keep our Site and Services safe and secure.
6.7. Pixel Tags. In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to users. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to Personal Data.
6.8. Flash LSOs. When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash Cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash Cookies are different from browser Cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash Cookies. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash Cookies, click here.
7. Aggregated Data
After removing any information that would personally identify you from within the set of Personal Data, Personal Network Information and Log Data we collect from you, we may combine that information with information we collect from other users and customers (collectively the “Aggregated Data”) in order to improve the quality and value of Services and to analyze and understand how our Site is used. We may share Aggregated Data (after stripping of any information that would personally identify you) and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and other purposes.

When a user turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. At this time, we do not recognize or respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals and we will still receive information. As a result, we may still collect information about you and your internet activity, even if you have turned on the Do Not Track signal. It is possible that some or all of our third-party advertising partners or members of their affiliate network may participate in consumer opt-out programs. To learn more about internet-based advertising and consumer opt-out programs go to https://aboutads.info/choices/ or https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. We do not operate or control these sites, and are not responsible for the opt-out choices available there.

Disclosure and deletion requests. You have the right to request that we disclose to you what personal information about you we collect, use, disclose and sell. Subject to certain limitations in the CCPA, you also have the right to request that we delete your personal information. You may submit such a request by contacting us at email@example.com, writing us at the address listed in Section 24, submitting an online request form. If you submit a request by email, your email must include “California Request” in the subject line. We will only use personal information provided in an online quest form to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
Right to opt out. The CCPA also provides California consumers the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information. As explained in this Policy, we do not sell the personal information of our users.
Verification. We reserve the right to verify any request made under the CCPA by asking you to provide supporting documentation that the request is submitted by you, although we are not obligated to verify a request. You may also choose to have an agent submit a request on your behalf, in which case we may, but are not obligated to, verify that the agent is authorized to act on your behalf. We assume no responsibility for responding to any consumer requests.
10.4 Financial Incentive Notice. As part of a Talkable Program, Merchants may offer you various financial incentives such as discounts and special offers when you provide your contact information and identifiers such as your name and email address. When you sign-up for a Talkable Program, you opt-in to a financial incentive. You may withdraw from a financial incentive at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or writing us at the address listed in Section 24. Generally, we do not assign monetary or other value to personal information, however, California law requires that we assign such value in the context of financial incentives. In such context, the value of the personal information is related to the estimated cost of providing the relevant financial incentive(s) for which the information was collected.
