5. THE COOKIES WE COLLECT AND THE USE WE GIVE THEM

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or

mobile phone (referred to here as a “Device”) browser from a website’s computer. It’s stored on your Device’s

hard

drive. Each website can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but to

protect

your privacy your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the

cookies

sent to you by other sites. Cookies give us usage data, like how often you visit, where you go on the Site and

what

you do.

We use cookies so that our Site can remember you and provide you with the information you’re most likely to need,

and also to compile statistical anonymous information. Please note we collect certain information from all users,

including web visitors who simply peruse our Site.

We may also use third-party cookies (for example, Google AdSense and DoubleClick) and Web beacons on our Site to

deliver advertising displayed to you on third-party sites. We may also use cookie information to know when you

return to our Site after visiting these third party sites. Additionally, we may also use analytics services (such

as Google Analytics, Optimizely, ClickTale, New Relic, and others) to help analyze how users use the Site.

Similarly to cookies, we may also use “web beacons”. Web beacons are used as a mechanism to help us track your

visits to our site and whether or not you open our emails. The pages of our Site and the emails we send you may

contain web beacons. In addition, we may use several third-party services that embed web beacons on our site for

similar tracking purposes. These third-party services are used to provide additional features to users, such as

the

ability to share content on our site with your social network.

Please be aware that users have the opportunity to set their Devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a

cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of

your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. To learn more about cookies, what they do and how to

manage the information they collect about you and your usage of the Site, please consult informative sites such

as

www.allaboutcookies.org.

Please be aware that blocking all or some cookies may affect the functionality of our Site. Kindly consult the

When accessing our Site, you will be alerted that we use cookies and that by continuing to use the Site we assume

that that means you consent to the installation and use of cookies. Should you not agree, please block cookies on

your browser or cease to use the Site.

6. PROTECTION OF “PII”

We take PII security very seriously and employ the following data security tools to protect your PII:

• HTTPS: a protocol for secure communication over a computer network which is widely used on the Internet. HTTPS

consists of communication over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) within a connection encrypted by Transport

Layer

Security or its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer. HTTPS allows for the authentication of the visited website and

protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data.

• Encryption of passwords

• Firewalls

Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of PII, namely when faced with

sophisticated criminal attempts to access our servers. By using our Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make

no

such guarantee, and that you use our Site at your own risk.

7. THIRD PARTY ACCESS TO YOUR “PII”

We give or may give in the future certain independent contractors access to PII (“Data Processors”). No Data

Processor will be retained without first entering into contracts in which they agree to protect PII using

procedures reasonably similar to ours and will only process PII in accordance with our instructions.

We may also disclose PII to attorneys and investors bound to confidentiality restrictions and to law enforcement

authorities, courts and public regulators, whenever such is required by applicable legislation. Finally, we may

share PII in connection with a transaction of all or substantially all of our assets.

We are entitled to use and share anonymous statistical data regarding the usage of our Site to third parties for

any purpose we deem suitable.

8. YOUR RIGHTS

Before your account can be activated, you will be required to confirm that you have read and agreed to the Site’s

Terms of Use and taken knowledge of this Privacy & Cookies Policy.

You can access and change any PII we store through your “My Account” page or by contacting us directly at the

following e-mail address: support@advertio.com. The access and correction of your PII is free-of-charge. You

acknowledge, however, that all PII you provide must be accurate and updated.

You may also oppose, at any time and free of charge, the use of your PII for direct marketing or any other form

of

commercial use. Should you wish to do so after receiving an e-mail or SMS from us, we will provide you with a

simple option to opt-out or remove yourself from our marketing directory. You may also withdraw your consent to

our

processing of your PII whenever such processing is dependent on consent. This may be done simply by sending us an

email to support@advertio.com.

Furthermore, you may at any time request that we delete or limit the PII we hold related to you. You may also

request the portability of your PII in accordance and within the limits of applicable law. It is your right to

also

request that we notify third parties with whom we may have shared your PII and also request that they comply with

your instructions.

Should you wish, you may file a complaint with a privacy regulatory body. In Portugal, the entity responsible for

enforcing privacy law is the Comissão Nacional da Protecção de Dados.

9. WHERE WE STORE YOUR PII AND FOR HOW LONG

All the PII regarding our users is stored on secure servers located within the European Union. We will inform our

users should we eventually change our policy.

Our objective is that our users have a long-lasting relationship with our Site, even if visits are not very

frequent. We will store your PII and your account will continue to be active for three years following your last

interaction with our Site. Prior to closing your account, we will notify you asking you whether you wish to

maintain your account active.
