BEFORE YOU USE THE WEBSITE, APPLICATION, AND/OR SERVICES, PLEASE CAREFULLY REVIEW THIS POLICY ALONG WITH OUR TERMS AND ANY OTHER DOCUMENTS REFER TO WITHIN THIS POLICY TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE WILL COLLECT AND UTILIZE YOUR INFORMATION AND YOUR CHOICES ABOUT THIS INFORMATION. BY USING ANY PART OF THE SERVICES, YOU CONSENT TO OUR USE OF SUCH INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS POLICY.
What Are Cookies?
There are two types of cookies: persistent cookies and sessional cookies. A persistent cookie helps Us recognize you as a regular visitor to Our Websites. These cookies stay in your browser and will be read by The Factionary when you return to Our Websites and/or Application. Session cookies only last for as long as the session, usually the current visit to a website or a browser session. Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit The Factionary, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Our Website faster and more secure. Cookies allow Us to bring you tailored advertising both on and off Our Website.
These technologies help Us better understand user behavior, tell Us which parts of Our Website(s) people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as Non‑Personal Information. As is true of most internet services, We gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, Operating System (OS), date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
For example, knowing your first name lets Us welcome you the next time you visit The Factionary. Knowing your country and language helps Us provide a customized and more useful learning experience. Knowing your device or computer helps Us make Our advertising and email communications more relevant to your interests. And knowing your contact information, hardware identifiers, and information about your device or computer helps Us personalize your user account, and provide you with relevant curated content for your learning pleasure.
Categories of Use
Authentication: If you visit The Factionary, cookies help Us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Preferences, Features, And Services: Cookies can tell Us what features you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on The Factionary more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customized content in conjunction with our plugins.
We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to advertising. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
If you receive an email from Us, we may use certain tools, such as clear GIFs to capture data such as when you open Our message or click any links or banners Our email contains. This data allows Us to gauge the effectiveness of Our communications and marketing campaigns.
We may personalize the content and advertising that you see when using the Services through third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on our Services and on third-party websites or other media (e.g. social networking platforms). This enables us and these third parties to target advertisements to you for products and services in which you might be interested. The ads may be based on various factors such as the content on the page you are visiting, the information you provide, you searched, demographic data, and other information we collect from you.
Users may opt-out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Users in the European Union should visit the opt-out page of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance, or TRUSTe’s Advertising Choices Page to opt out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. You may also use the links available in advertisements that appear in the Services and learn more about our advertising practices through the About Our Ads link available through the Services. To opt-out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page.
Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Services, you may still receive advertisements even if you opt out of tailored advertising. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt-out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt-out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI’s website at www.networkadvertising.org.
When using a mobile application, you may also receive tailored in-application advertisements. Each operating system provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You may review the support materials and/or privacy settings with the respective operating systems to opt out of tailored advertising. You should contact the applicable platform provider for further details on opting out of in-application advertisements.
We also may use third-party service providers to deliver advertisements on mobile applications or for mobile application analytics. You can opt out from third-party interest-based advertising on some Android devices and Google apps by visiting Google Settings, and Ads and then clicking on ‘Disable ads based on interests.’ You can also opt out of some interest-based advertising on your mobile device by downloading the TRUSTe Privacy App available at: https://www.truste.com/consumer-resources/privacy-app
Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Services, you may still receive advertisements even if you opt out. In that case, the advertising will not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of the above opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
Interest-Based Advertising: Please see Our interest-based advertising section above for more information about your choices regarding online interest-based advertising.
Do Not Track Disclosure: We may track your activities once you leave Our Services. There is still no universally accepted standard regarding tracking. You may disable certain tracking as discussed above (e.g. by disabling cookies). For more information about tracking, please click here.
