Data Collection and Use
- If you are an End-User using a mobile application or visiting a mobile website, we may collect various non-identifying information, such as your mobile device type, device name, device properties, IP address, video views, ad views, ad clicks, search queries, photo views, and page views. If we ever inadvertently collected personally identifiable information, then we will not use this personally identifiable information for ad targeting. If you use a mobile application, we may also collect the device identification code and/or the device MAC address (collectively, "Unique Identifier"). We may also combine all of this non-identifying information with other non-identifying information to infer interests or demographic characteristics.
- The information described above does not personally identify you. It may be used to send you advertisements for products and services that are relevant to your interests, including based on your demographics, and to measure the effectiveness of the Ads. If you would like to opt-out of receiving interest-based ads, please see below.
- In addition, End-Users may choose to provide feedback through the Rhythm Site, for instance, with respect to the Mobile Media that they used. If you decide to do so, we may share your feedback with the applicable Publisher. In addition, feedback may occasionally include personally identifiable information, such as your email address and name. To the extent that you decide to provide personally identifiable information as part of your feedback, such personally identifiable information may be shared with third party service providers and used to help us get a better understanding of our user base, including its demographics, with the goal of improving the user experience from a content and advertising perspective.
- Finally, we may collect from Publishers or Advertisers certain basic personally identifiable information such as business contact details of their personnel or representatives. We use such information to provide the Services, complete transactions, administer inquiries, and contact Publishers or Advertisers with respect to activities or communications relevant to the Services we provide them.
You can choose to opt out of targeting that relies on the unique identification of your mobile device. Once the opt out has been completed, you will still receive advertising messages, however these will not be targeted. In order to opt-out, you should send an email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your Unique Identifier.
- When you visit the Rhythm Site, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's IP address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Rhythm Site, pages of our Rhythm Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Rhythm Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Rhythm Site and the Services and for the Rhythm Site's technical administration, to increase our Rhythm Site's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor it to our visitors' needs.
