We process Personal Data about our customers and users in order to identify trends (to create aggregated and anonymized data about our customers/users, use of our Services, and other similar information ("Aggregated Data"). We may pass Aggregated Data to the third parties referred to in the section below to give them a better understanding of our business and to bring you a better service. Aggregated Data will not contain information from which you may be personally identified.

Personalization

We process certain Personal Data as necessary in connection with our legitimate business interest in personalizing our Digital Services. For example, aspects of the Digital Services may be customized to you, to display content that you have interacted with in the past, or to display content that we think may be of interest to you based on your interactions with our Digital Services and other content. This processing may involve the creation and use of Inference Data relating to your preferences.

Other Business Purposes

If we process Personal Data in connection with our Services in a way not described in this Privacy Notice, this Privacy Notice will still apply generally (e.g. with respect to your rights and choices) unless otherwise stated at collection. We will process such information in accordance with the notice provided at the time of collection or in a manner that is necessary and proportionate to achieve the operational purpose for which the personal information was collected or processed or for another operational purpose that is compatible with the context in which the personal information was collected.

How We Process Personal Data for Commercial Purposes

We and certain third parties process Personal Data we hold for certain purposes, depending on the context of collection and your rights and choices, including:

Personalization & Consumer Profiles

In order to understand our customers' preferences, and better recommend content and Services that are personalized to our customers, we may create a "Consumer Profile" by linking together and analyzing Personal Data collected in the following contexts:

We may also augment Consumer Profiles with Personal Data that we create (such as Inference Data) or that we receive from our affiliated companies or third parties, and may include Personal Data such as information about Services you have used or purchased previously, and demographic data.

We use Consumer Profiles for our legitimate interests in market research and statistical analysis in connection with the improvement of our Services. For example, we may analyze the Personal Data of people who have subscribed to our Publications in the past, and compare them with other people in our database. If we identify people in the database who have similar Personal Data to the subscribers, we may then target marketing to the new people we have identified in our database, for example by sending marketing emails. We may conduct the profiling and send the direct marketing emails automatically. We may also use this information for other Commercial Purposes.

Marketing Communications

Consistent with our legitimate business interests, we (or if appropriate, our third-party partners) may send you marketing and promotional communications if you sign up for such communications or purchase products or services from us. Where allowed, we may also send you these communications if you register for our Services or for a promotion, or in connection with your communications with or submission of User Content to us. These communications may be personalized or customized based on your user profile.

Similarly, we may also collect Device/Network Data and Contact Data so that we can determine whether you have opened an email or otherwise interacted with our communications, and we may generate Inference Data based on these interactions.

We may also process this Personal Data for targeted advertising. However, where consent to processing is required by law, we will link and process this information for targeted advertising with appropriate consent.

Targeted Advertising

We, and certain third parties operating on or through our Services, may engage in targeted advertising. This form of advertising includes various parties and services providers, including third party data controllers, engaged in the processing of Personal Data in connection with advertising. These parties may be able to identify you across sites, devices, and over time.

The parties that control the processing of Personal Data for behavioral advertising purposes may create or leverage information derived from personalization and profiling. In some cases, these parties may also develop and assess aspects of a profile about you to determine whether you are a type of person a company wants to advertise to, and determine whether and how ads you see are effective. These third parties may augment your profile with demographic and other Inference Data derived from these observations, and may also track whether you view, interact with, or how often you have seen an ad, or whether you complete a purchase for a good or services you were shown in an advertisement.

We generally use targeted advertising for the purpose of marketing our Services and third-party goods and services, to send marketing communications, including by creating custom marketing audiences on third-party websites (such as Facebook).

Data Sales

Certain Commercial Processing purposes involve "sales" of data as defined by applicable law. For example, we may "sell" (as defined by applicable law) certain Personal Data when we engage in marketing campaigns with or on behalf of sponsors, when we conduct targeted advertising, or we may sell or grant access to Personal Data to our marketing partners, promoters, and other advertisers. See the California Rights & Disclosures section for a list of categories of Personal Data sold.

In order to improve personalization, deliver more relevant information and advertisements to you, and develop better products and services, we may share certain Personal Data with our affiliates and trusted third parties for marketing, advertising, or other Commercial Purposes, and we may allow our affiliates and other third parties (such as Facebook, ad exchanges, data management platforms, or ad servers) to operate on our Digital Services and process data for behavioral advertising.
