  1. Information we collect through automated means

When you use our Services, we collect certain information about your use of and interaction with the Services as described in this Section. We and our service providers (which are third-party companies that work on our behalf) may use a variety of technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist in collecting this information.

When you use the Services, we collect and analyze information such as your IP address, browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the Services, software and hardware attributes (including device IDs), referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, files you download, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the terms you use in searches on our sites, the date and time you used the Services and upload or post content, error logs, and other similar information. We and our service providers may also automatically collect general location information (e.g. IP address, city/state and/or postal code associated with an IP address) from your computer or mobile device. This information allows us to enable access to content that varies based on a user’s general location.

  1. Information We Collect from Social Media and Other Platforms

If you access the Services through a third-party connection or login (e.g. through a social network), you may allow us to have access to and store certain information from your social network profile. This may include your gender, profile picture, and your list of friends, depending on your settings on such services. If you do not wish to have this information shared, do not use a social networking connection to access the Services. For a description of how social networking sites handle your information, please refer to their privacy policies and terms of use, which may permit you to modify your privacy settings.

  1. Information we collect from others

Dear Dahlia may receive additional information such as demographic and statistical information from third parties, such as business partners, marketers, researchers, analysts and other parties that we may attribute to you based on your assignment to certain statistical groups. We use this information to supplement the information that we collect directly from you in order to derive your possible interests and to provide more relevant experiences for you and improve Dear Dahlia’s products, analytics, and advertising.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We, or our service providers, use your information for various business and operational purposes depending on the types of information we have collected from and about you and the specific Dear Dahlia Services you use, in order to:

  • Complete a purchase or provide the Services you have requested, including invoicing and accounting

Combined information. For the purposes discussed in this Privacy Policy, we may combine the information that we collect through the Services with information that we receive from other sources, both online and offline, and use such combined information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Aggregate/anonymous data. We may aggregate and/or de-identify any information collected through the Services so that such information can no longer be linked to you or your device (“Aggregate/De-Identified Information”). We may use Aggregate/De-Identified Information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes, and may also share such data with any third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners, and sponsors.

COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

To collect the information in the “Information we automatically collect” section above, we and our service providers use Internet server logs, cookies, tags, SDKs, tracking pixels and other similar tracking technologies. We use these technologies in order to offer you a more tailored experience in the future, by understanding and remembering your particular browsing preferences.

  • A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site, which enables us to: (i) recognize your computer; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand the web pages of the Services that you have visited; (iv) enhance your user experience by delivering and measuring the effectiveness of content and advertising tailored to your interests; (v) perform searches and analytics; and (vi) assist with security and administrative functions.
  • Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier embedded in websites, online ads and/or emails that are designed to: (1) collect usage information like ad impressions or clicks and email open rates; (2) measure popularity of the Services and associated advertising; and (3) access user cookies.

As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather information through other methods.

ONLINE ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING

  1. Analytics

We may use third-party web analytics services (e.g., Google Analytics) on our Services to collect and analyze usage information through cookies and similar tools; engage in auditing, research or reporting; assist with fraud prevention; and provide certain features to you. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

If you receive emails from us, we may use certain analytics tools, such as clear GIFs, to capture data such as when you open our messages or click on any links or banners contained in our emails. This data allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns.

  1. Online advertising

The Services may integrate third-party advertising technologies that allow for the delivery of relevant content on the Services, as well as relevant content and advertising on other websites you visit and other applications you use. The ads may be based on various factors, such as the content of the page you are visiting, your searches, and demographic data. These ads may be based on your current activity or your activity over time and across other websites and online services, and may be tailored to your interests.

Third parties, whose products or services are accessible or advertised via the Services, may also place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone or other device to collect information about you as discussed above. We also allow other third parties (e.g. ad networks and ad servers such as Google) to serve tailored ads to you on other sites and to access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access the Services. We sometimes provide our customer information (such as email addresses) to service providers, who may “match” this information in de-identified form to cookies (or mobile ad identifiers) and other proprietary IDs, in order to provide you with more relevant ads when you visit other websites and mobile applications.

We neither have access to, nor does this Privacy Policy govern, the use of cookies or other tracking technologies that may be placed on the device you use to access the Services by such non-affiliated third parties. If you are interested in more information about tailored browser advertising and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link, or Your Online Choices to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs.

To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, visit the Google Ads Settings page. We do not control these opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.

Please note that if you exercise the opt-out choices above, you will still see advertising when you use the Services, but it will not be tailored to you based on your online behavior over time.

Do Not Track Notice.  Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our website for third party purposes, and that is why we provide the variety of opt-out mechanisms listed above. However, we do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals. Learn more about Do Not Track.

HOW WE SHARE AND DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION

Dear Dahlia will share your information in the following ways:

  • Affiliates and subsidiaries. We may share information we collect within the Dear Dahlia family of companies to deliver products and services to you, ensure a consistent level of service across our products and Services, and enhance our products, services, and your customer experience.
  • Service providers. We provide access to or share your information with selected third parties who perform services on our behalf. They have access to perform these services but are prohibited from using your information for other purposes. They provide a variety of services to us, including billing, marketing, advertising, analytics, research, customer service, delivery and fulfilment, data storage, security, fraud prevention, payment processing and legal services.
  • Protection of Dear Dahlia and others. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that we may access, retain and disclose the information we collect and maintain about you if required to do so by law or in a good-faith belief that such access, retention or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (e.g. a subpoena or court order); (b) enforce our Terms of Service, this Privacy Policy or other contracts with you, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; and/or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Dear Dahlia, its agents and affiliates, its users and/or the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, spam/malware prevention and similar purposes.
  • Business transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge with or partner with other companies. In such transactions (including in contemplation of such transactions), user information may be among the transferred assets. If a portion or all of Dear Dahlia’s assets are sold or transferred to a third party, customer information (including your email address) is likely to be one of the transferred business assets. If such transfer is subject to additional mandatory restrictions under applicable laws, Dear Dahlia will comply with such restrictions.
  • Your Consent. If you have consented to our sharing of your information, we will also share your information consistent with your consent.

From time to time, Dear Dahlia may share Aggregate/De-Identified Information about use of the Services, such as by publishing a report on usage trends. The sharing of such data is unrestricted.

RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We keep your information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. The length of time for which we retain information depends on the purposes for which we collected and use it and/or as required to comply with applicable laws.
