TARGETED ADVERTISING & ANALYTICS We engage others to provide analytics services, serve advertisements, and perform related services across the web and in mobile apps. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, SDKs, device identifiers, and other technologies to collect information about your use of our Service and other websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in mobile apps, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used to analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on other companies’ sites or mobile apps, and better understand your online activity. Some of our advertising partners enable us to translate your email address or phone number into an identifier that can’t be used to identify you personally. Our advertising partners then use that unique identifier to show ads that are more relevant to you across the web and in mobile apps. Some of the activities described in this section may constitute “targeted advertising,” “sharing,” or “selling” under some laws. To learn more about the choices available to you with respect to these practices, see below.
