Some Helpful Terminology
Log Data includes information sent to us by browsers, including, for example, browser type, browser time, time of access, screen resolution, IP address, referring site URL, current site URL, and search strings.
Personal information (also sometimes called personal data) is information that is associated with an individual and enables that individual to be singled out. Through the use of our log data and cookies, we collect personal information about you; that is, information that does not identify you directly (for example, NOT your name or email address) but that may indirectly identify your device. Under European privacy law, some information transmitted by Cookies and Log Data are considered personal information. However, while we make predictions about your interests based on this information, we don’t know who you are.
Timera Media Partners
We partner with other companies to help us provide and improve our services. Sometimes, it is necessary for us to share information that could be considered to be personal information about you with these partners. (Remember that we don’t share directly identifiable information about consumers, such as your name or address, because we don’t even collect that type of information).
Below, in the “Partners” section, we list the categories of our partners with whom we share personal information, with explanations of the services provided by these partners, and the types of information we share with them. We try to keep this list of partners up to date, so from time to time this list will be updated. This list identifies partners in each category with whom we share information about European consumers, along with links to their privacy policies so that you can learn more about their data collection and usage practices.
Next to the partner names, you will see whether the partner is a “controller” or “processor” of the personal information we share with them. In short, under European privacy law, the controller is the party who determines the “why” and “how” of the processing of personal data. The controller controls and is responsible for this data. On the other hand, a processor merely holds or processes the personal data on the instructions of the controller. The processor does not exercise responsibility for or control over the personal data. We do not jointly control the personal information collected via our services with our partners.
We are continually improving our services and our partners will change over time. We will update this page to reflect those changes.
