GATHERING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Users of the Service Generally
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name, email address or telephone number that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person.
Company gathers from users of the Application Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that devices, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes, a user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, device information (such as your mobile device ID), model and manufacturer.
Company collects and analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Application to help Company better understand how the Application is being used, how to promote the Application, and for the delivery of targeted advertising. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company is able to better design the Application to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content, advertising and ease of use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from the Application users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Application.
A “Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a page that is usually invisible to the user and allows operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular page or an email. Company may use Beacons on the Application and in emails to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails, and to deliver co-branded services. Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information; they are a technique Company may use to compile aggregated statistics about the Application usage. Beacons collect only a limited set of information including a Cookie number, time and date of a page or email view, and a description of the page or email on which the Beacon resides. You may not decline Beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all Cookies or modifying your device setting to notify you each time a Cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline Cookies on an individual basis.
We may either directly or through third-party companies serve ads to you when you access the Application. Advertisers may use information about your visits to and use of the Application (including, without limitation, stations accessed, listening habits, and location of accessing telephone number) that are contained in Cookies in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. We also allow advertisers to choose the characteristics of listeners who will be presented with their advertisements and we may use any of the non-personally identifiable attributes we have collected to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements.
If you are accessing the Application via the Internet, then using a tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative, you can opt out of several third party ad servers’ and networks’ Cookies simultaneously. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please follow the following link:http://networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. Please contact us if you would like to know the identity of the third-party advertising companies we are currently using to serve ads.
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Application. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Application and the most popular features or services accessed.

However, based upon your IP address, the telephone number that you use to access the Application, WiFi network data or cell tower triangulation, we may record general non-specific locations. However, we may also automatically collect anonymous information about you when you have geographical location tools on your Internet-enabled device which have not been disabled.
