Information about Others: You may decide to provide us with another person's email or phone number so that person may be invited to join Styku or so that we may facilitate your communication with other people through the Platform.  You may also provide us with another person's contact information for purposes of delivering information through the Platform or another messaging service (such as iMessage). We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person that he or she has been invited to join Styku or received content through the Platform. All invitees must opt-in to receive further invitations and communications from Styku. Standard text messaging rates apply.

Information Collected Automatically:  Whenever you visit or interact with the Platform, we, as well as our third-party advertisers and/or service providers, use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how you access and use the Platform (“Usage Information”).  This statistical usage data provides us with information about the use of the Platform, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Platform, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. This information helps us keep our website fresh and interesting to our visitors and tailor content to a visitor’s interests.  Usage Information includes:

  • Your IP address or other unique identifier for your Device.
  • Device type.
  • The type of browser software and operating system you are using.
  • The web page(s) you have accessed, and the time you accessed them.
  • Product and Network usage Logs for error detection and support

Cookies; Pixel Tags:  The technologies used on the Platform to collect Usage Information include but are not limited to: cookies (data files placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Platform), mobile analytics software and pixel tags (transparent graphic images, sometimes called web beacons or tracking beacons, placed on web pages or in emails, which indicate that a page or email has been viewed).  Cookies may also be used to associate you with social networking sites and, if you so choose, enable interaction between your activities on the Platform and your activities on such social networking sites.  We, or our vendors, may place cookies or similar files on your Device for security purposes, to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience while using our Platform (such as allowing us to select which content, ads or offers are most likely to appeal to you, based on your interests, preferences, location, or demographic information).  A pixel tag may tell your browser to get content from another server.  

To learn how to reduce the number of cookies you receive, or delete cookies that have already been installed in your browser’s cookie folder, please refer to your browser’s help menu or other instructions related to your browser.  You can also learn more about cookies by visiting https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/online/cookies, which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different types of browsers.

Google Analytics:  We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about your internet use.  For example, how often you visit our site, the pages you visit, and what other Sites you may have visited prior to coming to our site.  We use Google Analytics to gain insights into how the Platform is used and to help us improve our products and services. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.  To opt-out of Google Analytics, please use Google’s opt-out tool: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Do Not Track:  Currently the Platform is not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals sent from your browser.

Third Party Links and Services

We link to sites operated by other parties, but we are not responsible for their privacy practices.  If you link your Styku account with your account on another site or platform, we will have access to information you have shared with that third party.

The Platform and some of our email communications contain links to other sites that we are not responsible for.  We do not control, recommend or endorse these other sites. These other sites may also collect personal information about you, and they may have their own privacy policies.  We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any site that you access through the Platform.

You may choose to link your Styku account with your accounts with third-party services, such as Facebook.  If you do this, Styku has access to information that you have agreed to make available with the third party, such as profile information and account preferences.  You can control the information received by Styku via the privacy settings in the third party account.

Advertising

You can choose whether or not to see advertising based on your interests. If you opt-out, you will still see ads, but they will be less relevant to you.

Styku may use information derived from your use of the Platform or our products and services to determine what content we believe may be of interest to you, including content from the providers of goods and services that you may be able to purchase through the Platform or otherwise (who may pay us to show you such content). Note, however, that if a third-party content provider asks us to show content to users with certain characteristics (for example, women ages 18-24) or a segment of that group (for example, women ages 18-24 who have indicated they are interested in triathlons and you respond to that content or click on links embedded in that content, the third-party content provider may conclude that you have the characteristics of the audience that they are trying to reach. Styku does not have access to or control over cookies, web beacons, or other technologies that third parties who have asked us to show you content may use, and the privacy practices of these third parties are not covered by this privacy policy. Please contact these companies directly for information on their data collection and privacy practices. For more information on available opt-out options for targeted advertising delivered by NAI member ad networks, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/.

We may use third party ad network providers to help present ads on the Platform, as well as other service providers to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of the Platform and viewing of our content.  Such providers may place and access cookies, pixel tags, or similar technologies on your Device to serve you ads or other content personalized to your interests which they infer from your browsing on the Platform and other sites you have visited.  In doing so, the provider collects or has access to non-Personal Information such as your Usage Information that does not identify you. The use of cookies, pixel tags, or similar technologies by these providers is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours.

If you do not want to receive the benefits of targeted advertising, you may opt out of some network advertising programs that use your information by visiting the NAI Opt-Out Page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp or the Digital Advertising Alliance consumer choice page at www.aboutads.info/choices.

Please note that even if you choose to remove your information (opt out), you will still see advertisements while you’re browsing online. However, the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests. Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt-Out Page and the DAA consumer choice page provide mechanisms to opt out of receiving cookies from those companies. Please note that if you opt-out of targeted advertising, we may still track your visits to the Platform for our own analytics, operations and security purposes.
