Cookies and Other Information Collection Tools 

What are cookies? A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website or use an online service. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site or online service to recognize your browser. Cookies may store unique identifiers, user preferences and other information.  Why do we use them? Cookies help us improve the Services by providing us with information about which parts of the Services are most popular, enabling us to analyze technical and navigational information about the Services, and helping us to detect and prevent fraud. We also use cookies and other data collection tools (such as web beacons and server logs) to help improve your experience with the Services. For example, we use Google Analytics and other similar analytics tools to help analyze how users use the Services. These tools use cookies to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Services (including IP address) is transmitted to our data collection tool service providers. This information is then used by us to evaluate visitors’ use of the Services and to compile statistical reports on website activity for the Socialie. If you would like to opt-out from the use of your information by Google analytics, you may use Google’s analytics opt-out browser add-on designed for this purpose.  How do I control cookies? Web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to manage and delete cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org. Some web browsers provide settings that allow a user to reject cookies or to alert a user when a cookie is placed on the user's computer, tablet or mobile device. Most mobile devices also offer settings to reject mobile device identifiers. Although users are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, blocking or rejecting them may prevent access to some features available through the Services.

We may also use the information you provide to operate and maintain our Services and to improve our content and communications with you (for example, by customizing your experience or homepage on the Site), to enforce our Terms of Use, and to detect and protect against error, fraud and any other unauthorized or illegal activities. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect person, property or other rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on Socialie and/or as permitted by applicable laws. If you are accessing the Services from a country outside the United States, you acknowledge and agree that in using the Services, you will transfer personal information about yourself to the United States, that your information will be deemed sent to Socialie from the United States of America, that the data protection laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in your own country, and that the transfer of this personal information occurs with your consent and will be treated in accordance with the laws of the United States of America. By providing any personal information to Socialie through the Services, all users, including, without limitation, users in the member states of the European Union, fully understand and unambiguously consent to the submission, collection and processing of such information in the United States of America.
