III. Cookies and Similar Technology

Like many services, we use cookies. Cookies are a service or website’s way of remembering who you are. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your device’s hard drive or stored temporarily in your device’s memory. There are two kinds of cookies: those that are “session” oriented and those that are “persistent.” Session cookies delete from your device when you close your browser. Persistent cookies retain information for later use tomorrow, next week, next month, or whenever they are set to expire. We use cookies to help us to identify Users and to optimize their experience on our Service. We may also use cookies in order to deliver targeted advertising. We may use both first and third party cookies. First party cookies belong to us and third party cookies are ones that another party places on your device. Third party cookies may be used by companies providing a service to us or by business partners in order to advertise to you. By using your device or web browser’s settings, or both, you may modify your cookie settings. Please note, when you disable cookies you may not be able to access certain parts of the Service or the Service may not work properly.

V. How Does Covver Share Your Personal Information?

Unless listed in this Privacy Policy, Covver only uses Personal Information in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often Users use parts of the Service so that we can make the Service appealing to as many Users as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners, our advertisers, and other third parties about how our Users collectively use our Service. We share this type of statistical data so that the aforementioned parties may also understand how often people use their services and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience. Covver never discloses aggregate information in a manner that would reveal your email address or contact information, or in a manner that would identify you individually, either online or in real life.

There are circumstances where we need to share some of the personal information we collect about you or which you provide to us:

(a) We will disclose your Personal Information if you have explicitly agreed that we may do so. We will make this clear to you at the point at which we collect your Personal Information or at another time prior to disclosure of the information.

(b) We will disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that we are permitted or required to do so by law, including in response to a court order, subpoena or other legal demand or request.

(c) We may disclose your Personal Information if we feel it is necessary in order to enforce our Terms of Service and other agreements, policies, and standards, including investigation of any potential violation thereof; and to protect or defend our legitimate rights, property, and interests, or those of our Users, employees, directors, shareholders, or any other third party, and/or to ensure the safety and security of the Service and/or the Users community.

(d) We may transfer your Personal Information to any person or company that acquires all or substantially all of Covver, or on a merger of our business or in the case of our insolvency. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any transferee may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

(e) We may disclose your Personal Information to contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.

VI. Advertising

We will be selling advertising space on the Service. For the purpose of selling ads, we will be disclosing certain anonymized or aggregated user data, such as:

· the number of subscribers you have;

· broad demographic information based solely on de-identified, aggregated, or anonymized data;

· the number of ‘hits’ your magazine has received.

Likewise, there are other types of data that we will never tell advertisers without your affirmative consent, such as:

· the amount of revenue your magazine generates;

· any information that constitutes Personal Information;

· any other financial data.

Additionally, we require advertisers to abide by the following rules:

· They must abide by all applicable privacy laws, rules and regulations governing the use of your data;

· They must not use your data for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling data across multiple advertisers’ campaigns, or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis (unless authorized by you and us); and

· They must not transfer any of your data (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, ad exchange, data broker or other advertising or monetization related service.

VII. Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Any payment transactions and confidential information will be encrypted using SSL technology with DDoS protection[AAG1] .

Covver endeavors to protect User account information to ensure that account information is kept private, however, Covver cannot guarantee the security of User account information. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Service. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Service. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Service.

The Service may contain links to other sites. Covver is not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When linking to another site you should read the privacy policy stated on that site. This Privacy Policy only governs information collected on the Service.

VIII. Access, Choice and Control

You can always opt not to disclose information, even though it may be needed to take advantage of certain features of the Service. You are able to add or update certain information in your account settings. When you update your information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. You can unsubscribe from email newsletters and notifications (other than essential email notifications) at any time by clicking on the link at the end of each email.

Your mobile device may include a feature that allows you to opt out of some types of targeted advertising ("Limit Ad Tracking" on iOS and "Opt out of Interest-Based Ads" on Android).

You can switch off GPS location information functionality on your mobile device if you do not wish to share GPS information.

You may be able to refuse or disable Cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Because each browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your browser. Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable certain types of Cookies.

As a Covver User, you have the right to review and obtain a downloadable copy of your Personal Information from Covver, to request corrections to your Personal Information, and to request deletion of your Personal Information from Covver. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. You may also withdraw your consent to receive e-mail communications from us at any time. You may withdraw your consent to our collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information at any time by sending an e-mail request to [email protected].

From time to time, we may desire to use Personal Information for uses not previously disclosed in our Privacy Policy. If our practices change regarding previously collected Personal Information, we will provide notice and obtain consent to any such uses as may be required by law.

IX. Deleting Your Account

You may terminate this Agreement at any time by deleting your account (if applicable), and thereafter ceasing to use the Service. Simply deleting the Service from your mobile device will not effectively terminate this Agreement. If you ask us to delete your account, we will do so within a reasonable period of time.

Once your account has been terminated, any and all information within your account will be irretrievably deleted by Covver, except to the extent that we are obliged or permitted to retain such data or information for a certain period of time in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and/or to protect our legitimate business interests.
