3. OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Except as provided below, Opt-In Rewards will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise transfer any personal and/or traffic data or communications content outside of Opt-In Media and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your explicit permission, unless it is obliged to do so under applicable laws or by order of the competent authorities. Please note that information that you voluntarily make public in your user profile, or which you disclose on forums, discussions boards or by posting comments will be publicly available and viewable by others.
Opt-In Rewards may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, to protect CyberCoupon's interests, fight against fraud, and to enforce our policies or to protect anyone's rights, property, or safety.
In order to provide you with Opt-In Rewards products you have requested, Opt-In Rewards may sometimes, if necessary, share your personal and traffic data with CyberCoupon's group companies, carriers, partner service providers and/or agents. For example, Wi-Fi access services providers, distributors of Opt-In Rewards software and/or Opt-In Rewards products, and/or the third-party banking organizations or other providers of payment, email delivery, analytical services, customer support, or hosting services. Opt-In Rewards will always require these third parties to take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to observe the relevant legislation.
If you are a member of the Opt-In Rewards Manager, detailed information about the activity on your Opt-In Rewards account including traffic data and details of your purchases and downloads may be accessed by your Opt-In Rewards Manager Administrator if you have agreed to such access. You can withdraw your agreement at any time. If you provide personal data including your name and job title to be included in the Opt-In Rewards Manager directory, you acknowledge that such data may be viewed by other members of the Opt-In Rewards Manager.
Information that is collected by or sent to Opt-In Rewards and/or Opt-In Media may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Opt-In Media or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or service providers maintain facilities. In this regard, or for purposes of sharing or disclosing data in accordance with this article 4, Opt-In Rewards reserves the right to transfer information outside of your country. By using Opt-In Rewards software, Opt-In Media websites or Opt-In Rewards products you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
As Opt-In Media continues to develop its business, Opt-In Media might sell or buy subsidiaries or business units. In any such transactions in which Opt-In Rewards or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, personal information of Opt-In Rewards users will generally be one of the transferred business assets. We reserve the right to include your personal information in any such transfer to a third party.
4. WHAT ARE COOKIES AND GIFS HOW DOES OPT-IN REWARDS USE THEM?
4.1 What are Cookies and GIFs?
Opt-In Rewards web pages and client interfaces may include clear gifs, also known as web-beacons and tracking pixels. Gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, which are used to count your visits to the page (but which do not retain any personally identifiable information). In addition, Opt-In Rewards uses clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened and acted upon. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

4.4 Third Party Cookies
In addition to Opt-In Rewards' cookies, Opt-In Rewards' analytics, ad-serving and affiliate partners may set cookies and access cookies on your computer, when you are using the Opt-In Rewards software client or visiting an Opt-In Rewards website and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.
Opt-In Rewards gathers anonymous statistical and analytical information about how users use Opt-In Rewards websites and software clients. Opt-In Rewards aggregates data on page views and clicks on our sites, the search engines and keywords used to find our sites, links accessed from our sites, error and crash information about our clients, and similar information. These analytics are not used to track your journey to other websites or to identify you.
The advertisements of Opt-In Rewards and of third parties appearing in the Opt-In Rewards software, Opt-In Rewards products and on Opt-In Rewards third-party websites are delivered to you by Opt-In Media advertising or other carefully selected ad serving partners.
Opt-In Rewards' affiliate network program partner allows third parties to introduce people to Opt-In Rewards. Our affiliates may send cookies to your computer to allow them to receive information (a) when you click on a Opt-In Rewards related link on one of our affiliate partner sites, and/or (b) when you make a purchase on Opt-In Rewards' website, for the purpose of paying commission to the affiliate partner. If you re-visit Opt-In Rewards' site directly, our affiliate network program partner can recognize you and reward the third-party affiliate partner site that referred you to our site. These cookies are not within Opt-In Rewards' control.
4.4.4. Other Third-Party Content
Sometimes, Opt-In Rewards' websites may include widgets or embedded video content from third parties such as YouTube. When you view this content or use this widget, you may be accepting cookies from these websites. These cookies are not within our control and you should check with the relevant third-party site for more information.
4.5 Your Choices about Cookies
We don't recommend that you restrict or block cookies as this may impact on the functionality of our websites and products. However, if you choose to do so, please see the options available to you below. You can also find comprehensive information about cookies at www.aboutcookies.org
4.5.1 Browser Cookies
The Help option on the toolbar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, how to delete cookies or how to disable cookies altogether.
Opt-In Rewards software browser cookies can be disabled by: accessing the File menu from your Opt-In Rewards software client toolbar, choosing the Privacy option and un-checking the ‘Allow Opt-In Rewards Browser Cookies' box.
4.5.2 Local Shared Objects (Flash Cookies)
You can manage the usage of flash cookies via http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html
You may also manage flash cookies through your browser depending on how recent the version of Internet Explorer (or other browser) and media player you are using. Please also visit the Adobe website at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/526/52697ee8.html
4.5.3 Browser Controls for “Do Not Track” and Tracking Protection.
Some newer browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the web sites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Those sites (or the third-party content on those sites) may continue to engage in activities you might view as tracking even though you have expressed this preference, depending on the sites' privacy practices. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, Opt-In Rewards does not currently respond to the browser DNT signals on its own websites or online services, or on third-party websites or online services where Opt-In Rewards provides advertisements, content or is otherwise able to collect information. We continue to work with the online industry to define a common understanding of how to treat DNT signals. In the meantime, users may continue to opt-out of targeted ads from Opt-In Rewards as set forth below.
Internet Explorer (versions 9 and up) have a feature called Tracking Protection that helps prevent the web sites you go to from automatically sending details about your visit to third-party content providers. When you add a Tracking Protection List, Internet Explorer will block third-party content, including cookies, from any site that is listed as a site to be blocked. For more information about Tracking Protection Lists and Do Not Track, please see the Internet Explorer Privacy Statement or Internet Explorer Help.
