1. What information may be collected by Grabyo, and how is it collected?

You may provide us with this information if you use certain services or products from the Grabyo Service.

We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Grabyo Service.

Our service providers may collect information about your online activities over time and across different online services. One of the service providers that we use for data analytics is Google Analytics. If you do not want Google Analytics to collect and use information about your use of the Services, then you can install an opt-out in your web browser (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/). Grabyo does not process or respond to web browsers’ “do not track” signals or other similar transmissions that indicate a request to disable online tracking of users who visit our web site or who otherwise use the Grabyo Service.

Another of the service providers we use for data analytics is Go Squared Ltd. ("GoSquared"). GoSquared's services uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of this website.

We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs" or “web beacons.” This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Grabyo Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Grabyo Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Grabyo Service. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.

Third Party Services: You may be able to link your account on the Grabyo Service or register on the Grabyo Service with an account you have with a third party service (“Third Party Account”), such as Facebook.

Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, not by Grabyo. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.

5. Advertisers

Grabyo allows other companies, including third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Grabyo Service. These third-party ad servers or ad networks may use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements that appear within the Grabyo Service and they automatically receive your IP Address and other log file information when this happens. Such third-party ad servers may also use other technologies (such as cookies, javascript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize their advertising content.

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

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks.
