INFORMATION THE WEBSITES COLLECT
The Store is operated by Shopify. Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which they may handle your Personal Information.
Please note that information submitted to the Websites via a “Contact” page or other similar function may not receive a response. We will not use the information provided via these functions to contact you for marketing purposes unrelated to your request unless we disclose otherwise at the time you submit your request. The Websites are general audience web sites and we do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children younger than the age of thirteen (13). We will delete any Personal Information collected that we later determine to be from an individual younger than the age of thirteen (13). If a parent, guardian or anyone else becomes aware of Personal Information that has been collected from the use of the Store or Websites by an individual under the age of 13, please contact our Store customer service immediately at email@example.com.
Your Personal Information submitted via the Store may be updated and/or deleted by sending an e-mail to Store customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO PUBLICLY DISPLAY THROUGH THE WEBSITES, AND POSTING CONTENT TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Also, if you choose to “like” content on one of the Websites, to tweet from the Websites or to otherwise post information from or via the Websites to a third party web site, feature or application, that information may be public and the third party may have access to information about you and your use of our Websites.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE ABOUT A THIRD PARTY
If you send someone else a communication from the Websites, such as sending a video to a friend, the information you provide (names, e-mail addresses, etc.) is used on a one-time basis to facilitate the communication and is not used for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY AS YOU ACCESS AND USE THE WEBSITES
We, as well as any third-party advertisers, service providers and content providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain Site usage information whenever you visit or interact with us or our content found elsewhere on the internet (” Usage Information”). Usage Information may include browser type, operating system, all of the areas within our Websites that you visit, including content that you browse, and the time of day, among other information. We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including to enhance or otherwise improve the Websites and our services. In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (” Device Identifier”) for the particular device you use to access the Websites. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access the Websites and our servers identify your device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the device used to access our Websites. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.
The methods that may be used to collect Usage Information include the following:
A cookie is a data file placed on a device when it is used to visit one of our Websites or otherwise access our online content. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, remembering you and your preferences and tracking your visits to our web pages.
A Flash cookie is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plugin that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your device. Flash cookies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, enabling a Flash feature and remembering your preferences. For more information about Flash and the privacy choices Adobe offers, visit http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en…. If you choose to disable cookies or to adjust your Flash privacy settings on your device, some features of the Websites may not function properly.
When you visit our Websites, we may collect data using clear GIFs (also known as web beacons or pixel tags) and similar technologies. We may also use clear GIFs in our communications with you (such as emails) to track information such as whether you have received and opened our communication. A clear GIF is typically a one-pixel, transparent image (although it can be a visible image as well), located on a web page or in an email or other type of message, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet, enabling the verification of an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message. A clear GIF may enable us to relate your viewing or receipt of a web page or message to other information about you, including your Personally Identifiable Information.
An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Websites, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Websites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies on the Websites that collect information for security and fraud detection purposes.
App technologies are technologies included in our apps that are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. For example, our apps may include third party SDKs, which is code that sends information about your use to a server. These SDKs allow us track our conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional functionality, such as the ability to connect our Service with your social media account.
Location-Identifying Technologies are technologies used to collect your location. For example, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth may be used to collect precise location data when you consent to precise location tracking through our apps. Location data may be used for purposes such as verifying your device’s location and delivering or restricting relevant content and advertising based on that location.
INFORMATION THIRD PARTIES PROVIDE ABOUT YOU AND SOCIAL MEDIA INTERACTIONS

HOW AND WHEN WE DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
You also may request, sometimes through your use of an interactive feature or third party application, that we share information about you with a third party and we will typically do so under those circumstances. For example, if you “like” content on our Websites, information about you may transfer to the third party offering that application on our Websites and to the third party web site to which you are posting.
Third Parties Providing Services on our Behalf. We may use third party service providers to perform certain services on behalf of the Websites, such as hosting the Websites, designing and/or operating the Websites’ features, analyzing users’ interactions with the Websites, sending communications, safeguarding against fraud, or performing other administrative services. We may provide these companies with access to user information, including Personal Information, to carry out the services they are performing for you or for the Websites.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions. We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a ” Promotion”) that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the terms, conditions or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules, such as on a winners list.
USE FOR ANALYTICAL AND AD SERVING PURPOSES
We use standard tools common within the industry, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about use of our Website. These tools collect information such as how often you visit our Website and what other Websites you visited prior to reaching our Website. We use the information we obtain from analytical tools for the purposes of improving our Website. The analytical tools collect only the IP address assigned to your computer or other device and your browser settings as of the moment you visit our Website, rather than your name or other identifying information.
Finally, our Website relies on common industry tools Google Display Network Impression Reporting and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These tools help us understand the composition of viewers of our Website in terms of gender, age and interests. We need this information in order to understand what types of creative content we need to develop to suit the interests of different demographic and interest groups. In addition, Our Partners may need this information to develop marketing content. You may, at any time, opt out of Google Analytics tracking, including Google Display Network Impression Reporting and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, by installing the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On. You may also opt out of ad serving through Google’s opt-out page.
You can opt out of ads personalization using Google’s Ads Settings by following the instructions contained on the following resource of Google — Google Ads Settings. If you choose to opt out of ads personalization, you will no longer receive personalized advertising.
Business Transfers. DailyRapFacts may share Personal Information with its subsidiaries and affiliates for internal business reasons. DailyRapFacts also reserves the right to disclose and transfer all information related to the Websites, including Personal Information: (i) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Websites or component of the Websites, such as a database; or (ii) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of certain of DailyRapFacts’s ownership interests, assets, or both, or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.
THIRD PARTY CONTENT, WIDGETS, AND LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
The Websites may contain content that is hosted and served by third parties, which may include third party widgets (such as those that allow you to share content with third party web sites and online services). The Websites may also contain links to other third party web sites that DailyRapFacts does not control. In addition, DailyRapFacts widgets may be included on web pages and web sites that are not associated with us, and over which we have no control. These third parties may collect information about you through the use of their own cookies and web beacons, may independently collect data or solicit Personal Information, and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. DailyRapFacts is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party
DailyRapFacts takes commercially reasonable steps to help protect and secure Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information we collect, and that you use our Websites and provide us with your information at your own risk.
If you are a visitor or user from the European Economic Area, we will only collect and use your personal data (as defined under Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“GDPR”)) when we have a legal basis for doing so.
The legal basis on which we rely will depend on the type of personal data we collect and the specific context in which we are collecting it. We will make clear to you when we are collecting personal data from you, and when and as required under GDPR, we will request your affirmative consent to the collection of your personal data, prior to collecting it. We will also make clear to you when such collection of your personal data is required (for example, because we have a legal obligation to do so, or because we cannot provide a service to you without collecting your personal data), and what are the consequences of your declining to allow us to collect your personal data.
If you have any questions about our collection and use of your personal data or any requests to delete your personal data, please contact us at email@example.com.
