  1. Information We Collect and How We Collect It 

We may collect information from you both directly and automatically when you use or visit the Services. Some of this information may be considered “personal information” under various applicable laws.  We consider information that identifies you as a specific, identified individual to be personal information (such as your name and email address), and we treat additional information, including IP addresses and cookie identifiers, as “personal information” where required by applicable law.  Note that Probellum may de-identify personal information so that it is non-personal, such as by aggregating it or converting it to a code, sometimes using a function commonly known as a “hash.”  We will treat de-identified information as non-personal to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law.  If we combine non-personal information with personal information, then we will treat the combined information as personal information under this Privacy Policy. 

Probellum collects information in the following ways:  

  1. Information You Provide to Us. In the course of using the Services, you may provide us with certain information, including contact information (such as your name and email address). 
  1. Information We Collect Automatically From Your Use of the Services.  When you use our Services, we, our third-party service providers, and our business partners may automatically collect certain information (“Usage Information”).  One of the ways we collect Usage Information is when you use our Services, our servers automatically generate logs to help us determine how you use various features to improve our services.  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.  This Usage Information includes your IP address and unique device identifiers (“Device IDs”) for your computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access the Services.  A Device ID is a number that is automatically assigned to your device, and our servers identify your device by its Device ID.  We will also collect and track other data and information relating to your device, including the hardware model, the Internet service provider you are using, browser, and operating system you are using.  We may track your use of the Services, including the features you access and how you interact with the Services.  

We use the following types of tracking technologies (collectively referred to as “Tracking Technologies”) to automatically collect information when you interact with us online:    

Cookies and Local Storage are small text files stored locally on your device that help store user preferences. These technologies are able to store a unique identifier for a device to us to recognize the device whenever the device is used to access our Services. These technologies may be used for many purposes by us, our service providers, and our third-party business partners, such as automatically collecting Usage Information, enabling features, serving advertisements to you online, and remembering your preferences. We may use cookies and other technologies to study usage patterns on the Services, to study the effectiveness of our user communications, to manage and measure the performance of advertisements delivered through our Services, and to personalize your experience of the Services, such as to recognize you when you return to the Services. The information we store includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. If you do not want to accept cookies, you can block them by adjusting the settings on your Internet browser. You can find more information about cookies and how they work at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Web beacons (also known as clear GIFs and pixel tags) are small pieces of code used to collect usage analytics.  They help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or not and, if so, how many times. When you ask us to send you information on a promotion or a newsletter, we will use web beacons to establish how many of the emails are actually opened. We use similar tools to collect such information from mobile devices. In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes. 

  1. Information from Third Parties.  We may receive information about you from third parties, such as business partners who work with us to provide you access to content or other features.  
  1. Social Media. We may permit you to interact with social media, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. When you interact with third party platforms through the Services, we will receive information about you.  We may also receive information about you if other users of social media give us access to their profiles and you are one of their connections or “friends.”  The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party’s privacy practices, including, without limitation, whether the third party continues to share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices with regard to what is visible to others on that third-party website or service. We or the third party may allow you to disable or remove the application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected.  

If you choose to post information to a third party platform, that information may be public and the third party may have access to information about you and your use of the Services. You may also choose to participate in a way that connects that third-party service with the Services, such as posting to one of our pages on a social media site. Doing so may allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including personal information, and the third party may allow us to re-post content related to us on our own services.  

In addition, these third parties may set their own cookies and collect information about your use of the Services, including your IP address or other device identifiers, and which pages you visit on the Services.  Certain third-party platforms may be able to collect certain information on your visits to the Services regardless of whether or not you affirmatively interact with the feature. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of third parties that control platforms you post to or that connect to the Services and set your privacy preferences with them.

Probellum works with third party business partners such as online advertising companies, analytics providers, and other partners to serve our ads online, and to provide us with information regarding the use of the Services and the effectiveness of our advertisements.  We allow these companies to place tracking technologies like cookies and web tags on the Services, and they may otherwise collect or have access to Usage Information and other information about you.  Some of these parties may collect personal information over time when you interact with the Services or other online websites and services.  We may share information, typically information that has been aggregated or de-identified, Usage Information, and location information with third party advertising companies, analytics providers, and other third parties including for targeted advertising purposes.   

We use Google Analytics, which uses cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze information about the use of the Services and report on activities and trends.  This service may also collect information about the use of other websites, apps, and online services.  You can learn about Google’s practices by going to https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

We use a variety of third parties to perform advertising and analytics services, and some of these companies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”).  You may wish to visit optout.networkadvertising.org, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the opt-out procedures of NAI members, including opt out mechanisms for web browsers, mobile and other connected devices, and a tool to opt out from participating NAI members using your hashed email address for interest-based advertising. You may also want to visit optout.aboutads.info, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an opt-out for DAA-participating companies.   

Please note that opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising, and that you will continue to receive generic ads while online.   

If you are a California resident, please see our NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS.

  1. How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals 

Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals offered by some web browsers are settings that request that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and/or other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context.  Like many websites and online services, we may not alter our practices when our systems receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser, except as specifically required by law. You can learn more about Do Not Track at www.allaboutdnt.com.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including, but not limited to, any third party websites, services and applications (and the information or content contained therein) (“Third Party Services”) that may be linked to or from the Services and/or that you elect to access through the Services. When you navigate away from our Services to another site, this Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Those Third Party Services may use their own cookies or other tracking technologies, may independently collect information from you or about you, and match your data with data from other sources and use your data in ways other than described in this Privacy Policy. Your browsing and interaction on any Third Party Services is subject to such Third Party Services’ own rules and policies, which we encourage you to review prior to providing them with your information.
