MightyOwl collects information in several ways from different parts of the Product.
During the course of providing the Product, we collect information about your use of the Product, as well as any information that you submit to the Product, such as answers to questions or content or messages posted or shared through the Product.
Like most websites and online services, MightyOwl and our vendors automatically collect certain types of usage information when you visit www.mightyowl.com, read our e-mails, use our Product or otherwise engage with us. This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, Locally Stored Objects (LSOs such as Flash or HTML5), log files, and similar technology (collectively, "tracking technologies"), and we may use third party providers to collect this information on our behalf. These tracking technologies collect information about how you access and use the Product (e.g., referring / exit pages and URLs, how frequently you access the Product, the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take on the Product); information about your browser and information about the device(s) you use to access the Product (e.g., Internet Protocol (IP address), browser type, browser language, Internet service provider, device type, model and manufacturer, a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, device or, operating system brand and model, and whether you access the Product from multiple devices). We may also collect information about your geographical location data at the city level. We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Product and to understand more about the demographics and behaviors of our users. You can learn more about Google's practices at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners. We may also work with third party partners to employ technologies, including the application of statistical modeling tools, which permit us to recognize and contact you across multiple devices. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our users, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track signals set by your browser at this time.
We use or may use the data collected through tracking technologies to secure the Product, improve the Product, to save you time, to provide better technical support, for promotional purposes, and to track website usage. For example, tracking technologies help us to:
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services (particularly those that require you to sign in) may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. You may also set your e-mail options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our e-mail and performed certain functions with it. Deleting cookies does not prevent the collection of information through non-cookie technologies and does delete Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as Flash objects and HTML5. You can learn more about Flash objects — including how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies — on Adobe's website at https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html. If you choose to delete Flash objects from our sites, then you may not be able to access and use all or part of the sites or benefit from the information and services offered.
We use the information we collect for the following purposes:
We use the information we collect to deliver the Product to you.
We use information to tailor the content and information that we may send or display to users, to offer personalized content and instructions, and to otherwise personalize your experience while using the Product, including on various devices you may use to access the Product. We collect statistics to better understand how users access and use our Product, monitor the effectiveness of our Product, detect usage patterns, and to diagnose or fix technology problems. We also use information to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Product and perform research, and to develop, support, and improve our Product and other educational products and services.
We use information to respond to legal requests or claims, and enforce our terms and policies.
We may also share personal information in the circumstances described below.
MightyOwl may share information with our trusted vendors, third party service providers and individuals to provide services or products for us or on our behalf, which may include analytics, hosting, billing, targeted advertising, and marketing.
We may share information in aggregated and/or anonymous form that cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual. For example, MightyOwl may disclose aggregated user statistics (i.e., the total number or percentage of MightyOwl users from a particular geographic region) in order to describe our Product to current and prospective partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
If MightyOwl becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, change of control, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, your personal information may be transferred or disclosed in connection with the business transaction.
MightyOwl may release personal information if it has a good faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce applicable Terms of Product, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of MightyOwl, its users, or the public; or (e) as required or permitted by law.
MightyOwl does not display any targeted advertising on the Product.
Please note that we may permit third party advertising partners to collect information from visitors to adult-directed areas of the Product for the purpose of displaying advertisements on other websites or online services on our behalf.
We may work with third-party online advertising networks which use technology to recognize your browser or device and to collect certain types of usage information about your visit to or use of our Product to provide customized content, advertising and commercial messages to you on other websites or services, or on other devices you may use. We (through the third-party advertising networks) may use this information to direct our online advertisements to those people who may find them relevant to their interests. Typically, though not always, the information is collected through cookies or similar tracking technologies. You may be able to set your browser to reject cookies or other tracking technology by actively managing the settings on your browser or mobile device, though these tools may not be effective for all third-party tracking technologies, including Flash or HTML5 cookies. To learn more about cookies, clear gifs/web beacons and online advertising technologies and how you may opt-out of some of this advertising, you may wish to visit the Digital Advertising Alliance's resources at http://www.aboutads.info/choices and/or the Network Advertising Initiative's online resources, at http://www.networkadvertising.org/.
If you do not want to receive targeted advertising from MightyOwl based on your visit to our website, you can use the below link to request that MightyOwl take steps to prevent third-party advertising networks from using information about your visit to our website to display targeted MightyOwl advertisements to you on other websites or services on behalf of MightyOwl. MightyOwl cannot, however, guarantee that such steps will eliminate all collection and/or display of targeted advertising, and it may take some time for your request to take effect. Such requests will not prevent you from receiving contextual advertising or other types of advertisements that are displayed without taking into consideration whether you have previously visited http://www.mightyowl.com/ (for example, advertisements shown on the basis of a search term keyword). Such requests will not stop the collection of information for purposes other than advertising (e.g., for website analytics). This opt-out requires the setting of a cookie in your browser to record your request (and thus will no longer be effective if the required cookie is deleted), will be effective only in the browser from which you make the request, and will be effective for a maximum of one year from the request. If you delete cookies, change your browser settings, switch browsers or computers, or use another operating system, you will need to make the request again. You may make additional requests at any time.
Please contact us directly to request not to have information about your visit to www.mightyowl.com tracked for the purpose of displaying targeted MightyOwl advertisements on other sites or services.
MightyOwl may, in its sole discretion, modify or update this Policy from time to time, which will be reflected in the 'Last updated' date set forth below. If we change this Policy in a material manner, we will do our best to notify you of the changes by posting a notice on our website or through other appropriate communication channels. Your continued use of the Products following the effective date of such update constitutes your acceptance of the revised Policy. If you do not agree to any of the terms in this Policy or to any future terms in a future revision of this Policy, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Product.
