Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms
- Cookies Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to a computer’s hard drive through a web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for You to navigate our Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track Your activities while using our Services. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if You prefer, You can edit Your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers provides information about how to prevent a computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify upon receiving a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If You disable cookies, You may be able to browse certain areas of the Services, but some features may not function (e.g., You may not be able to stay logged into Your account).
- Clear GIFs, pixel tags, and other technologies Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (also referred to as web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Services to, among other things, track Your activities, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of our Services. We and our service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to You, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.
- Do Not Track Disclosure Our Services may not respond to Do Not Track signals. You can learn more about Do Not Track signals at http://www.allaboutdnt.com/. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in the Cookies and Other Tracking Mechanisms section above (e.g., by disabling cookies).
- Interest-Based Advertising We use third parties such as network advertisers to display advertisements on our Services, to assist us in displaying advertisements on third-party services, and to evaluate the success of our advertising campaigns. You may opt out of many third-party ad networks, including those operated by members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). For more information regarding this practice by NAI members and DAA members, and Your choices regarding having this information used by these companies, including how to opt out of third-party ad networks operated by NAI and DAA members, please visit their respective websites: www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp (NAI) and www.aboutads.info/choices (DAA).
Opting out of one or more NAI member or DAA member networks only means that those members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to You. It does not mean You will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our Services or other services. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that You are viewing (i.e., contextual advertising) or from entities that are not members of the NAI or DAA. Also, if Your browsers are configured to reject cookies when You visit an opt-out page, or You subsequently erase Your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, Your NAI or DAA opt out may no longer be effective.
- Security We have implemented a number of measures to help protect the personal information we collect. These measures include limiting access to personal information to employees with a need to access it and encrypting personal information provided through our Site using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Please note, however, that while we endeavor to keep our security measures up-to-date, no data security measures can guarantee complete security. In addition, there are steps that You can take to help protect personal information, including choosing a robust password for your device and/or account that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping Your log-in and password private. If an unauthorized third party compromises our security measures, Graphika is not responsible for any direct or indirect damages caused by such unauthorized party’s access, acquisition, or distribution of Your personal information. If You believe that Your personal information has been compromised, we encourage You to notify us immediately.

Subjects who wish to correct or delete the personal information that we use to provide our Services should contact the social networking platforms with which they interact to make such a request.
