Collection of Information
We collect information you provide directly to us.

The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, home address, phone number, social media usernames, survey responses, demographic information and any other information you choose to provide.

Sharing of Information
We do not share information that contains personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, address, and phone number except as described in the list of bullets below. We share information that does not identify you personally, including but not limited to location and demographic information, TV viewing data, purchase data, and device and advertising identifiers, with our customers to provide insight into consumer behaviors and preferences and to enable them to tailor market research, attribution modeling, and future ad campaigns based on such data. We may also share such information with unaffiliated third parties whom we work with for purposes such as market research, product development or recruitment purposes. We do not, however, share personally identifiable information with third parties, except as follows:
Social Sharing Features
The Services may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook "Like" button), which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.
Advertising and Analytics Services Provided by Others
Placed takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
For our mobile apps, you may update or correct information you have provided to us via one of our mobile apps by going into the settings screen within the app. If you wish to deactivate your account, please delete the mobile app, but note that we may retain certain information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time.
Because the purpose of the Placed mobile apps is to collect location information and other information about you in return for points or other benefits, we require the collection of location information from you in order to earn those benefits. If you initially consented to our collection of location information through our mobile apps or a mobile app that integrates our Services, you can subsequently stop the collection of this information at any time by following the standard uninstall process to remove all of those mobile apps from your device or by changing the preferences on your mobile device. Please note, however, that if you withdraw consent to our collection of location information, you will no longer be able to earn points or other benefits through the Placed mobile apps.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Optionally, you may choose to specifically reject Placed cookies (our domain is placed.com). Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services or the websites and apps that integrate our Services.
You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from Placed by following the instructions in those messages. If you opt out, please note that we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as those about your account or our ongoing business relations.
With your consent, we may send push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings within our mobile apps or by uninstalling our apps from your device.

Please note that while opting out limits Placed's collection of information to serve you interest-based ads, it does not prevent you from receiving ads from Placed or third parties, and we may still collect data in browsers or apps for non-interest based advertising purposes such as analytics and reporting, operations, and frequency capping.
