Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Oodles services.

Oodles allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements on the Oodles app. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on Oodles app. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content.

Oodles does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Oodles to show an advertisement to a certain audience and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks. The Oodles privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such advertisers.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

Oodles uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Oodles and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Oodles makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Oodles, at all times.
