Tracking technologies and cookies

When you visit or access our Platform (for example when you visit our Website, visit the Embedded Items or download our Application), or when you interact or engage with Third Party Content, we use (and authorize third parties to use) web beacons, cookies, pixel tags, scripts, tags and other technologies ("Tracking Technologies").

The Tracking Technologies allow us to automatically collect information about you and your online behavior, as well as your device (for example your computer or mobile device), in order to enhance your navigation on our Platform, improve our Platform's performance and customize your experience on our Platform. We also use this information to collect statistics about the usage of our Platform, perform analytics, deliver content which is tailored to your interests and administer services to our Users, advertisers, publishers, customers and partners.

In addition, we may merge information we have with information collected through Tracking Technologies and with information we may obtain from other sources and, as a result, such information may become Personal Information.

We also allow third parties to collect information about you through Tracking Technologies. This information is anonymized and cannot identify you, and is used for marketing and ad-targeting purposes.

How do we use the information we collect?

    We work hard to provide you with a fun and engaging experience on our Platform. In order to do so we use all of the information that we have (non Personal Information) to create a personalized experience for our Users and to improve our Platform. For example, we can suggest content that you might like (such as movie polls or sports surveys) based on your activity on our Platform.

    We use the information that we have to let you know about our policies or important notifications and updates about our Platform. For example, if you have provided us with your email address, we may use it to alert you about upcoming articles, features or events. If you have a prefab7.com Account, we may use your email address to alert about our new features, or to send you reminders to complete activities that you’ve started on our Platform or to remind you of your password (if you've forgotten it).

  • Communication
    We use the information that we have to communicate with you – for example, we will use your email address to respond to your queries or feedback.

    We also use and share non-Personal Information (meaning, aggregated information or Personal Information which is de-identified and cannot allow the identification of a User) we have, including information collected through our Tracking Technologies, with our partners (in various jurisdictions around the world) for advertising purposes.

    Opt-out
    If you do not want us to use or share your Personal Information (namely, information which can potentially identify you) for advertising purposes, you may opt-out in accordance with this "Opt-out" section. Please note that even if you opt-out, we may still use and share your Personal Information with third parties for non-marketing purposes (for example to fulfill your requests, communicate with you and respond to your inquiries, etc.). In such cases, the companies with whom we share your Personal Information are authorized to use your Personal Information only as necessary to provide these non-marketing services.
