2. WILL THIS POLICY EVER CHANGE?
We may change this Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by posting the updated policy and revising the “Effective Date” above. Use of the Services after the posted Effective Date means you accept the current version of the Policy, including any changes made prior to the posted Effective Date.

We encourage you to review the Policy whenever you use our Services to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.

For example, the process of creating or editing your user profile on a Service may require you to provide us with a name, e-mail address, phone number, physical address, including zip code, password of your choice and cable provider. When you personalize your profile and use the features of the Services, we will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of the Services, such as a profile picture and birthday. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter into any postings, comments or forums within the Services, including private messages you send to other users of the Services. And, if you send an e-mail to us, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files and other information you choose to provide to us.
Location Information: We may collect different types of information about your location, including general information, such as the city, state and/or zip code associated with your IP Address, and, if you agree, more specific location information that is provided through the GPS functionality on mobile devices used to access the Services. We may use such location information to customize the Services, including advertising that is presented to you. For example, if you provide a zip code that indicates that you live in New York, the Services may be customized with New York-specific information, features, and advertisements. In order to do this, your location information may be passed along to our affiliates, agents, vendors or advertisers. Options you have to control the automatic collection of location information are explained below under “What Are My Choices.”

This may include your postal address, email address and financial information. Digital Store does not collect or store your financial information, like credit card numbers. However, Digital Store’s third party payment processors may share non-financial information with us related to your purchases, like your name, shipping address and items purchased in order to fulfill your order.
Aggregate and/or De-Identified Information: We may aggregate or de-identify certain information that we collect from you. Aggregate and/or de-identified information is designed so that we cannot identify you personally.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 4, 2015
We want to be transparent about how and why data about you and your browsing behaviors may be used in connection with our services. This policy describes:
WEB BROWSER COOKIES
A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website to your computer or mobile device where it is stored by your web browser. A cookie contains limited non-personal data, usually a unique identifier and the name of the site. This enables a website to recognize you as you move around the site and/or each time you revisit. Cookies are used for a wide variety of purposes such as to keep you logged in or to remember what’s in your basket if you’re shopping online, to remember your preferences and settings, to analyze how the site is used by you, and to serve advertising to you.
Cookies may be served to you by the website you are visiting (a “first party cookie”) or by another organization providing services to that website, such as an analytics company or advertising network (a “third party cookie”). They will either be stored for the duration of your visit (a “session cookie”) or they will remain on your device for a fixed period, which could be months or even years, to remember you across multiple browsing sessions (a “persistent cookie”).
TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES: WEB BEACONS/GIFS, PIXELS, PAGE TAGS, SCRIPT
Web pages, emails and mobile apps may contain a small transparent image file or line of code to record how you interact with them. They are often used in conjunction with web browser cookies (or the unique identifier of your mobile device) and they are used to help website and app publishers to better analyze and improve their services and to target advertising based on your browsing behavior and interests. For example, by knowing which web pages you visit or which elements of a page you viewed, when and for how long, whether you viewed and/or clicked on an advertisement on a site or whether you opened or clicked on marketing emails sent to you.
TRACKING VIA MOBILE APPS
When you use our Mobile Apps we may record unique identifiers associated with your device (such as the device ID and IP address), your activity within the App and your network location. This information may be used to analyze and improve our services and to serve advertising to you.
1. HOW ARE COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES USED?
More information about analytics and advertising is detailed below.
ANALYTICS ON OUR SERVICES
On our websites we use Google Analytics, and other similar services, to collect statistical information about how are websites are used. They use information such as your IP address, browser type and unique identifiers stored in cookies on your device to record how you interact with our website.
These analytical services help us to know how many users we have, which parts of our sites are most popular, what browsers are used (so we can maximize compatibility), the country or region where our users are located, and the demographics and interests of our users. This enables us to better understand who is using our site and to ensure we are reaching our target demographic, and to improve and tailor our services accordingly.
ADVERTISING ON OUR SERVICES
Advertising tailored to your individual interests on other websites and online services, known as interest-based advertising or behavioral advertising, may be served by us or we may allow third parties’ advertisements to be served through the services. We believe this makes the advertising more interesting and useful to you, and also helps us increase the value we get out of the site from our advertisers, ultimately giving us a greater ability to invest in great content for the benefit of all users. These advertisements are sometimes targeted based on your browsing activity over time and across third party websites and services. As a result, you may see advertising based on website content you have been viewing on another website. For example, a retailer might use information about the products you browsed on their website in order to tailor their advertisement to you on this website. Other times, the advertisements are not tailored or targeted based on your browsing on other websites, but rather simply based on how you use and interact with the services.
Advertisements may come from third party companies called “ad networks.” “Ad networks” include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Your web browser must request these advertisements from the ad network’s servers, which allows ad networks to view, edit or set their own cookies on your browser, just as if you had visited a web page from their website. We have implemented or are in the process of implementing the following features based on Google Analytics for Display Advertising: Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These advertising services may track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including cookies first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together (i) to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on past visits to our website and (ii) to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our websites. This information is not shared with us and we do not share information with the advertiser about your browsing of our website. This is not an exhaustive list. Other third parties may assist us in delivering interest-based advertisements.
It is important to note that at no time do we or our service providers attempt to identify you individually, nor do we create a profile of you for the purposes of delivery advertising.
You may have a choice about whether to have your information collected for these purposes. See below for details and for information about how to exercise that choice.
