Types of Information Collected
How We Collect and Use information
We collect the following types of information:
Information you provide. When you willingly provide your personal information, we combine the information you submit under your account with information from other MYSITES services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our Services.
Log information. When you access MYSITES Services via a browser, application or other client our servers automatically record certain information. These server logs include information such as your web request, your interaction with a service, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that uniquely identify your browser.
Location data. MYSITES will offer location-enabled services, sometimes part of another provider, to its brands. If you use those services, MYSITES will receive information about your actual location (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location (such as a cell ID).
Unique application number. Certain services include a unique application number that is not associated with your account or you. This number and information about your installation (e.g., operating system type, version number) will be sent to MYSITES when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers (for example, to request automatic updates to the software).
In addition to the above, we will use the information we collect to provide, maintain, protect, and improve our services (including advertising services) and develop new services.
We also engage in general profiling based on the personal information we process on behalf of the brands who use our services and use automated decision-making or profiling to help tailor the offers that you receive from them. However, this processing does not result in legal or other significant effects.
If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, we will provide you with information regarding the purpose for the processing, as well as other relevant information, prior to processing your personal information for the new purpose.
How We Share Information
Like many businesses, we sometimes hire third party vendors to perform certain business-related functions on our behalf, such as hosting specific portions of the Service, maintaining databases, delivering content, sending emails, administering content, mailing information, processing payments, or otherwise operating the Services. When we employ a third party vendor to perform these functions, that third party vendor will only be provided with the particular personal information or aggregate information it needs to perform its function, and is required to protect such Personal Data and/or Aggregate Data.
In addition, we enter into relationships with brands, advertising partners, networks who provide services to you, sell items or provide promotions to you. MYSITES provides and/or sells personal information of our customers over the age of 18 and/or aggregate information to those partners for marketing, re-marketing purposes, and for monitoring performance metrics. We share information that has been anonymized or aggregates without limitation. You have the right, at any time, to direct us to not to share or sell your personal information. This right may be referred to as the right to opt out. Categories of information we have sold within the last 12 months: None.
Categories of information we disclose for legitimate business purposes may include some or all of the following: name, zip code, email, phone number, age, birth date, and gender.
You have the right to request that we delete any personal information about you which we have collected from you. When we receive a verifiable request from you to delete your personal information, we will delete your personal information from our records and direct any of our service providers to delete your personal information from their records. Our business or a service providers shall not be required to comply with your request to delete your personal information if it is necessary for us or our service providers to maintain your personal information in order to:
(1) Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of a business’s ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between you and us.
(2) Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity.
(3) Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

(5) Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code.
(6) Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when our deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if you have provided informed consent.
(7) To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us or our service providers.
(8) Comply with any legal obligation.
(9) Reset your Password.
