2.1 Cookies and Data Collection Tools
We use third-party browser and mobile analytics services such as Google Analytics on our website. These services use Data Collection Tools to help us analyze your use of the website, including information like the third-party website you arrive from, how often you visit, events within the website, usage and performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. We use this data to improve the website, better understand how the website performs on different devices, and provide information that may be of interest to you.
2.3 Online Advertising
We use third-party advertising services like Facebook Ads, Google AdWords, and other ad networks and servers to deliver advertising about our website on other websites and applications you use. The ads may be based on information we collected about you, such as your Usage Data and System Data (as detailed in Section 1), and data that these ad service providers know about you based on their tracking systems. The ads may be based on your recent activity or activity over time and across other websites and services and may be tailored to your interests.
Depending on the types of advertising services we use, they may place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, phone, or other device to collect data about your use of our website and may access those tracking technologies in order to serve these tailored advertisements to you. To help deliver tailored advertising, we may provide these service providers with a hashed, anonymized version of your email address (in a non-human-readable form) and content that you share publicly on the Services.
When using mobile applications, you may also receive tailored in-app advertising. Apple iOS, Android OS, and Microsoft Windows each provides its own instructions on how to control in-app tailored advertising. For other devices and operating systems, you should review your privacy settings or contact your platform operator.
We use your data for purposes such as providing information on the website, communicating with you, troubleshooting issues, securing ourselves against fraud and abuse, improving and updating our website, analyzing how visitors use our website, serving personalized advertising, and as required by law or necessary for safety and integrity.
We use the data we collect through your use of the platform to:
We share certain data about you with companies performing services for us, our business partners, analytics and data enrichment providers, your social media providers, companies helping us run surveys and advertising companies who help us promote our website. We may also share your data as needed for security, legal compliance, or as part of a corporate restructuring. Lastly, we can share data in other ways if it is aggregated or de-identified or if we get your consent.
We use appropriate security based on the type and sensitivity of data being stored. As with any internet-enabled system, there is always a risk of unauthorized access, so it’s important to protect your password and to contact us if you suspect any unauthorized access to your account.
Majoritas takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal data that we collect and store. These measures vary based on the type and sensitivity of the data. Unfortunately, however, no system can be 100% secured, so we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us or any information provided to us in connection with the data we collect through the website will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Your password is an important part of our security system, and it is your responsibility to protect it. You should not share your password with any third party, and if you believe your password or account has been compromised, you should change it immediately and contact us at email@example.com with any concerns.
You have certain rights regarding our use of your data, including the ability to opt out of promotional emails, cookies, and collection of your data by certain analytics providers. You can update or terminate your account from within our platform and you may also contact us for individual rights requests about your personal data. Parents who believe we’ve unintentionally collected personal data about their underage child should contact us so that we delete that information.
