If Samira Dehghanian should ever file for bankruptcy, or become insolvent, or be acquired by a third party, or merge with a third party, or sell all or part of its assets, or transfer substantially all or part of its relevant assets to a third party, then Samira Dehghanian is entitled to share the personal information and all other information you have provided through the products and service to potential and subsequent business and merger partners.

8) THIRD-PARTY LINKS AND CONTENTS

Our services and communications may contain links to or content from websites or other online services provided by third parties. We expect our partners and third-party providers to respect your privacy, but you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by websites and other services that are not under our control. The privacy practices of third parties are governed by their privacy policies, and we encourage you to review the privacy policies of all websites and online services that you use, view, or visit.

There are a few ways in which we utilize third-party services to help run / fund the site:

A. Affiliate Marketing. When you buy a product through our site, third-party service provider (e.g. Amazon) pays us a percentage of each sale. This does not impact your price in any way, and helps pay to keep the site online.

B. Advertising. This typically involves embedding a script from one or more ad networks into our pages, which then display ads that might be relevant to the viewer.

C. Analytics. Our web traffic is also analyzed by third party companies (e.g. Google), for our own internal reporting and server monitoring.

Ad networks and analytics companies generally try to build viewer profiles to better target their advertising and/or improve their web traffic analyses, so these companies may have more of your personal data.

9) USE OF COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES

We may use cookies, web beacons (also known as pixels), and other technologies to collect information when you use our website or our services. These technologies help us remember you when you visit our website, personalize your experience on the services, learn about how you and others use the services, learn about the devices you use to access the services, and remember your preferences.

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website stores on your computer or device in the cookie file associated with the browser that you use to access the website. Most major websites use cookies. Cookies alone generally cannot be used to identify you. But if you choose the “Remember Me” feature or similar features, a cookie will store information that helps remember you, such as your username.

Cookies help us recognize you when you return to our websites and hold information from one visit to the next for your ease of use. Cookies also help us better understand how people use our services through click-stream analysis, which allows us to design a better user experience. We may also share information that we collect with third parties, such as service providers, advertisers, and advertising companies as described in this Privacy Policy.

Certain third-party content providers, advertisers, and advertising companies may also place cookies on your computer or mobile device. Those cookies are controlled by the third parties and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. Further information on our use of cookies, including how to disable them or register your preferences regarding their use, is contained in the Interest Based Advertising section of this Privacy Policy.

We and some of our advertisers work with ad networks and ad delivery platforms that place retargeting pixels on users’ computers to gather information about users’ online activities, such as browsing histories and demographic information. This information can be aggregated into audience segments, which help deliver relevant advertising to users visiting our websites and third-party websites that use the same pixels.

Some of our services and communications may contain tiny electronic images known as web beacons. We use web beacons to assist us in delivering cookies on our services and to allow us to count users who have visited those pages. We may include web beacons in promotional email messages in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

10) INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Samira Dehghanian and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Therefore, to help ensure that you receive ads that are relevant to your interests on our services, our advertisers’ services, and elsewhere on the Internet, we and third-parties (including service providers, advertisers, and advertising companies) may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites, apps, and devices. We and third parties may use that information to help understand audience segments. Advertisers may use the segments to determine the audience groups to which they wish to deliver particular ads. Through this process, we do not use information that directly identifies you.

You can opt out of receiving interest-based advertising on your computer or laptop from some companies, including us and our service providers, by visiting the following sites:

For more information on Do Not Track, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com.

19) HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR DATA?

This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
