This policy applies to: Visitors to our websites and mobile applications and users of our related Services; and People who contact us with inquiries.
What information we collect?
Some user information you provide to us directly, some user information is collected automatically when you use the Services, and some user information we receive from third parties, such as our third-party vendors and publicly-available sources such as public websites.
When you use the Services, we also collect or receive general information (“Usage Data”) about you, either from you or other sources, such as personal identifiers (for example, IP address and device identifiers), demographic information, information about your preferences, interests, search queries, and online activity (such as date and time of your access to the Services, referring URLs, and information about the usage of our Services).
Usage Data may also contain Personal Data.

Email subscriptions: If you sign up for an email subscription on our Services or otherwise opt-in to marketing communications, we collect your email address and may also collect other information about you, such as your subscription preferences and interests.

Promotions: We may collect or receive information about you when you sign up for a sweepstakes, contest, other giveaway or promotion, or sign up for or attend a virtual or in-person event offered by us and/or by our partners (“Promotions”).
Applications: We collect the information that you enter into our applications, which may be available on our Services or on third-party sites or platforms
User Generated Content: We may collect your user-generated content when you provide it to us via the Services, via email, or on other platforms or websites, such as social media platforms (for example, photos or videos that you take, send or upload, comments that you provide, or URL links).
Purchases: When you make a purchase through our Services, we and/or our vendors may also collect your information described below in the section entitled What Information We Share with Third Parties.

Please remember that any content (e.g., comments, photographs, information and other materials) that you post directly on our Services, including our social media pages, is public and can be read, collected or used by others. Please be cautious when disclosing any Personal Data through public activities or submissions.
Data that is automatically collected
We (and third parties with whom we partner) may also deliver a file known as a web beacon, pixel or pixel tag to you through our Services. “Web Beacons” are small, invisible graphic images that may be used on the Services interface or in emails relating to the Services to collect certain information and monitor user activity on the Services interface, such as to count visits, access Cookies, understand usage effectiveness and to determine if an email has been opened and acted upon. “Pixels” or “Pixel Tags,” also known as clear GIFs, beacons, spotlight, tags or web bugs, are a method for passing information from the user’s device to a third-party website (for example, information about a user's browsing behavior, what links they click on, and purchases they have made on the Services).
“Geo-Location Data” may be collected with your consent or inferred as you use the Services. Such information may include the location of the device used to access the Services, and may be derived from GPS or WiFi use or calculated based on your IP address.
Information received from third-party sources
We may receive User Data about you from third-party sources, including as follows:
Advertising and analytics data: We may receive various types of User Data from our third-party partners and vendors, such as analytics data about your visits to our sites, reporting information about ad campaigns, information about your browsing behavior, interests or preferences, and contact information (such as email address). For example, third parties who provide advertising and related services (such as analytics providers and ad networks) may provide us with User Data so that we can compare it to User Data we hold in order to determine if you are the same individual (one method of doing this is called “cookie-matching”).
Purchases: We may receive User Data about you from third parties when you buy things through our Services or when you buy things from a third party after clicking on an affiliate link in our content. This information may include your contact details (such as name and email address) and financial and other details related to the transaction (such as items purchased and purchase price) from providers of technical, payment and delivery services.
Referrals: Your Personal Data may be provided by other users of the Services (for example, if your email address is entered into the Services by a friend referring you to the Services).
Third-party connections: If you use a third-party connection or log-in (such as Facebook Connect or Google) in connection with the Services, we may receive your name, email address and/or profile photo from those third-party services or other information available about you or collected from you on those services. We will only use such information in accordance with the terms and policies of such third-party platforms.
Other sources: We may also supplement the User Data we collect from you with other information from third parties, including third-party vendors, affiliate network operators, referral sources, social networking sites or services (such as Facebook), and publicly-available sources.
Advertising and marketing
Certain third-party vendors and partners (including, but not limited to, advertisers, advertising agencies, ad networks, ad measurement providers, and other marketing and advertising service providers and partners) (“Advertisers”) may collect information about you on the Services in order to provide you with relevant advertising on the Services and on other websites, platforms and media channels, and to analyze the performance of advertising campaigns. These Advertisers may use tracking technologies such as Cookies, Web Beacons, and other similar technologies, and may collect many different kinds of data, such as your IP address, device ID, advertising ID, and precise location data where made available by your mobile device.
The specific Advertisers we work with are subject to change at any time. For a list of some of the applicable providers or for more details on opting out of tracking for certain advertising purposes, please see the section below entitled How you can change or control what is collected.
The use of tracking technologies by these third parties is subject to their own privacy policies. Please review them carefully.
We may also sell or transfer User Data to certain Advertisers who will use this data for their own purposes, including to serve ads that they believe are relevant to your interests. Some of these third parties may combine the User Data with their own data about you to form a more detailed picture. We may also share User Data with Advertisers for the purpose of allowing them or their vendors or clients to send you marketing communications related to your use of the Services, their services or programs featured and/or advertised on the Services (e.g., through ads or Promotions), or their products, services and/or programs generally.
We may provide certain Advertisers with information
regarding your interactions with our emails and newsletters, other interactions or actions you take on our Services (such as clicks and purchases), or as to whether your information matches certain information held by the Advertiser and/or their customers. Those Advertisers may combine this data with information they collect for their own marketing purposes and in turn, may provide this information to their customers for their customers’ marketing purposes.
In order to help us sell advertising on the Services and otherwise publicize Group Nine and its products and services, we may also share
aggregated statistics that describe our online audience. Those statistics are often based on the information you provide when you subscribe, register, browse the Services, and make purchases, and describe, among other things, the demographics of our visitors.
How you can change or control what is collected.
Changing your account settings
You may add, update or delete information through your user account settings, which limits the ability of other users to see the information in your user profile. The information you can view, update, or delete may be different depending on which area of the Services you are using and may also change as the Services change.
If you have any trouble accessing, correcting or deleting any of your information, please contact us at email@example.com and we will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
You can usually instruct your browser by changing its settings to stop accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting a Cookie from our websites that you visit. If you choose to disable Cookies, you may not be able to use all portions of the Services or all functionality of the Services.
Opting out of tracking
The specific Advertisers we work with are subject to change at any time. For a list of some of the applicable providers or for more details on adjusting your cookie settings, including opting out of tracking for advertising purposes, please click on the Cookie Settings button in the footer of every page on the Services. Please note that if you intend to opt out of tracking for advertising purposes, you will need to adjust your Cookie Settings separately for each brand.
We use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through our Services. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons or hardware or software failure.
The main risk of our processing of your User Data is if it is lost, stolen or misused. This could lead to your User Data being in the hands of someone else who may use it fraudulently or make public information that you would prefer to keep private. For this reason, we take reasonable precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of your user information, including through use of appropriate organizational and technical measures.
In the course of provision of your User Data to us, your User Data may be transferred over the internet. Although we make reasonable efforts to protect the User Data which you provide to us, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure. As such, you acknowledge and accept that we cannot guarantee the security of your User Data transmitted to our website and that any such transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your User Data, we will use strict procedures and security features designed to prevent unauthorized access to it.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access your online account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you that you create a strong, unique password that you do not use on other sites and that you do not share your password with anyone. You are ultimately responsible for the security of your email address and password.
We especially care about the privacy of young children. Most of our Services are not directed to children under the age of 16 and except as set forth below, we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 16 on such Services. If we learn that we have collected Personal Data from a user under 16 years of age on such Services, we will promptly delete any Personal Data that the individual has provided to us.
The time period for which we keep User Data varies according to the information’s use. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period. Unless there is a specific legal requirement for us to keep the information, we plan to retain it for no longer than is necessary to fulfil a legitimate business need.
