Advertising that you see on our site comes from various sources. An advertisement could be from a company that we partnered with directly. While we do not manually preview every ad before it is served, we periodically monitor the advertising and block any advertisement that we deem offensive or inappropriate. We are in no way responsible for the content of an advertiser's website if you choose to click on an advertisement.
Like many web sites, we partner with ad networks that utilize contextual marketing, which is targeted advertising based on user data, such as web behavior. Ads on our site or in our emails may utilize data collected on other sites. Conversely, data collected on our site or via our emails may impact ads seen across different channels and platforms, including but not limited to, computers, mobile devices, and TV addressability. Information gathered is generally used for geo-targeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites). For the technical details related to contextual marketing and opt-out information, please see the "Third-Party Ad Networks" section below.
We do not display your contact information publicly on our site or disclose personally identifiable information to third parties, except for when (1) we have your permission to make the disclosure, (2) the disclosure is necessary for the purpose for which the information was obtained, (3) a third party is assisting us to provide or manage the services or website, or (4) where otherwise stated in this policy. We also may disclose information where permitted by applicable law or when the disclosure is necessary, in our sole discretion, for the establishment or maintenance of legal claims or legal compliance, to satisfy any law, regulation, subpoena or government request, or in connection with litigation.
In the event we are acquired by or merged or consolidated into another entity, or if there is a sale of our assets, your information may be transferred to the entity acquiring us or our assets or the entity that survives the merger or consolidation. You acknowledge and agree that in the foregoing circumstances, your information may be disclosed to such third party.
Additionally, emails we send may contain a bit of code known as a "web beacon." This code allows us to understand the time and date of when a user has opened an email and when he/she has utilized a link within the email to visit a website. Our web beacons do not collect personally identifiable information and you may disable our web beacons. Please see your email client for more information regarding disabling web beacons.
Like many other web sites, the Company makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information.
You may request us to stop the collection of tracking information at any time by adjusting the settings on your device, or contact us at [email protected]. Please note that disabling these features may render some or all of our Products & Services unavailable.
You may have the opportunity to receive certain communications from us related to our Services. If you provide us with your email address in order to receive communications, you can opt out at any time by using the unsubscribe links at the bottom of our emails.
Please note that certain emails may be necessary to provide you with our Services. You will continue to receive these emails, if appropriate, even if you unsubscribe from our optional communications.
We take precautions, but cannot provide guarantees. We do our best to secure your data through the programming of our services and the use of security measures that we deem appropriate for the type of data provided. However, we cannot completely guarantee that no part of our system or site will ever fail or be compromised. If you ever suspect that our site or services has contributed to your personal information being compromised, please contact us at [email protected] immediately so that we can investigate and try to resolve the matter.
If you are a California resident, the California Consumer Privacy Act provides you with the following rights with respect to your personal information:
When you exercise these rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity by asking you to log in to your account if you have one with us. Or if you do not, we may ask for your email address and require additional verification. We also may use a third party verification provider to verify your identity.
The fact that you have elected to exercise these rights will have no adverse effect on the price and quality of our Services.
The Company does not and will not sell your personal information.
Minors under 18 years of age in California may have the Personal Information that they provide to us through the Website deleted by sending an email requesting deletion to [email protected]. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.
Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals, which is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users opt out of tracking by websites and online services. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not been adopted, Fundly does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
If you are in the European Union (EU), you have certain rights in relation to your personal information under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and other applicable European data privacy laws.
The Company is the controller of personal data submitted by you or otherwise collected when you use the Site and Services. Please note, however, that the Company is not the controller of third-party data you may submit to our Service. We process such information within the Service solely in the processor’s role and, depending on the scope of your activity, you may be the data controller.
Rights to Control Your Personal Information
You have certain rights with regard to your personal information under the European data privacy laws. If you would like to request a copy of your personal information being held by us, request that your personal information is deleted, request to update and/or correct your personal information, or request that we provide a copy of your personal information to another data controller, please contact us. We will aim to respond to your request within one calendar month of receipt of your request. Where we are unable to do so within the calendar month, we will notify you of the soonest practicable time within which we can respond to your request (and within three months from the date of your request). There are certain exemptions and restrictions of these rights under the European data privacy laws that enable personal information to be retained, processed or withheld from access and we will inform you of these restrictions if they apply.
You may access, download, change, or modify your personal information by contacting us. You may also exercise your right to prevent us from sharing your personal information at any time by contacting us as described below under the Contact Us section.
Our Products and Services may include links to and from the websites of our partner networks and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for such privacy policies. Please check the privacy policies applicable to any other website you access via the Website before you submit any personal information to such other website.
Please be informed though that the Company and its controlled subsidiaries do adhere to the principles of the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union or Switzerland to the United States. Therefore, you can feel free to legally transfer processed personal data to our systems. Shall you have any privacy related complaints or suggestions, please contact us at: [email protected] or at our business address. As a Privacy Shield Framework Participant, we are also subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and – owing to our Privacy Shield participation – you may also file a complaint to your local data protection authority or – in rare cases when if we could not resolve you complaint – you can invoke binding arbitration.
