- “Non-personal data” (NPD) is information that is in no way personally identifiable.
- “Personal data” (PD) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. PD is in many ways the same as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). However, PD is broader in scope and covers more data.
- A “User” is someone who uses our Services.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Generally, you control the amount and type of information that you provide to us when using our Services. If you do not provide us with enough PD, we may not be able to provide you with all the features of our Services.
We collect your PD in the following ways:
- Automatic Information
We may automatically receive information from your computer or mobile device. This information includes the name of the website from which you accessed our Services, if any, as well as the name of the website you’ll visit when you leave our Services. This information also includes your IP address and the proxy server you use to access the Internet, your Internet service provider’s name, your web browser type, the type of mobile device, your operating system, and data about your activity when using the Services. We use all this information to analyze trends among our Users to help improve our Services.
Our Services may use forms. The information you enter into these forms may contain PD.
- Device Permissions
Our Services may request permission to access certain functions of your mobile device. These functions include accessing your mobile device’s camera, photos, contacts, and/or calendar. You do not have to grant us permission to access your mobile device’s functions if you don’t want to.
- Strictly Necessary Cookies
- Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information about the use of the Services, such as pages visited, traffic sources, Users’ interests, content management, and other measurements.
- Functional Cookies
These cookies facilitate the operation and improve the functions of web pages. For example, functional cookies enable the Services to remember a User’s choices – such as their language, user name, and other personal choices while using the Services.
- Media Cookies
These cookies can be used to improve performance and provide special features and content. They can be placed by our company or by third parties who provide services to us.
- Advertising or Targeting Cookies
These cookies are usually placed and used by advertising companies to develop a profile of your browsing interests and serve advertisements to you that are related to your interests. You will see less website advertising if you disable these cookies.
- Session Cookies
These cookies allow websites to link the actions of a User during a browser session. Session cookies also permit Users to be recognized as they navigate a website so that any item or page changes they make are remembered from page to page. Session cookies expire after a browser session; thus, they are not stored long term.
- Persistent Cookies
These cookies are stored on a user’s computer or device in between browser sessions, which allows the user’s preferences or actions across a website (or, in some cases, across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering users’ choices and preferences when using a website or to target advertising to them.
- Identifying the areas of our Services that you have visited
- Personalizing content that you see on our Services
- Mobile Application and/or Site analytics
- Remarketing our products or services to you
- Remembering your preferences, settings, and login details

We may also use a technology called web beacons to collect general information about your use of our Services and your use of special promotions, emails, or text messages. The information, if any, we collect by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor the number of people who receive our communications and use our Services and to understand the behavior of our Users and visitors.
Analytics and Crash Reporting
Our Services use analytics and crash reporting services to collect information about the use of our Services. This includes collecting information such as number of Users, where Users come from, Users’ actions within the Services, and Users’ crash reports. We use the information we receive from analytics to improve our Services. We do not combine the information collected through the use of analytics with personally identifiable information.
Users can opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting by visiting https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen.
- What information does Skimlinks collect about Users through its technology and how does it use this information?
- Skimlinks stores Users’ IP addresses, from which they can determine a User’s approximate geographical location (e.g. country or region). Skimlinks needs this information to optimize the links that are created/monetized to suit the geography of the User, and to provide aggregate reporting to Publishers, Merchants and Advertisers on the location of users visiting Skimlinks Enabled Sites. Skimlinks also uses IP addresses as part of their efforts to reduce fraud and identify non-human browsing patterns.
- Skimlinks stores information about the device that a User uses to access sites within their Publisher network, such as the browser type, browser version, and type of device. This helps Skimlinks ensure they can diagnose and fix browser compatibility issues more swiftly, optimize their service to suit the preferred browsing environments, and provide aggregate reporting to Publishers, Merchants and Advertisers.
- Skimlinks stores non-identifiable information, using cookies and device identifiers, about the websites within their Publisher network that Users visit, which of their links Users click on, and whether Users make a purchase. This enables Skimlinks to provide Users with relevant and useful links and advertising to products and/or services in which they are likely to be interested, and to Merchants and Advertisers from whom they are likely to want to buy. Further information regarding the cookies Skimlinks utilises to collect this information can be found at http://skimlinks.com/user-cookies
- As part of the information available in standard web serving logs, Skimlinks also stores information about the referrer, i.e. the website page from which the User linked to the Skimlinks Enabled Site.
- To provide Publishers and Merchants with the Service, Skimlinks collects information on visits and sales on Skimlinks Enabled Sites, including but not limited to order value, products bought, and order identifiers. These are used to help Publishers, Merchants and Advertisers make better marketing and content creation decisions.
- At no time does Skimlinks know who a User is, nor does Skimlinks make any attempt to try and identify a User.
- How can I disable Skimlinks cookies?
If you no longer want Skimlinks to store data about the websites you visit, the links you click and the Merchants you buy from, you can simply opt-out at https://optout.skimlinks.com/. This will mean Skimlinks will not drop Skimlinks cookies when you browse websites in their Publisher or Merchant network.
Please note: This opt-out facility relies on a cookie being set on your browser. By visiting the link above, you acknowledge that Skimlinks will be setting and maintaining the cookie on your browser in order to recognise you as an opted-out visitor. You must opt-out again if you clear that cookie from your browser (see allaboutcookies.org for more information), use a different internet browser, or use a different computer to access the internet.
U.S. visitors can understand more about cookies and their choices at these websites:

We have built our Services using industry-standard security measures and authentication tools to help protect the security of your PD. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against the loss or misuse of your PD or secure data transmission over the Internet because of its nature.
