Cookies and Similar technology.
Third party data and advertising platforms that we work with may use or combine multiple technologies, such as cookies, page tags, mobile identifiers and IP addresses to infer users’ common identities across different services and multiple devices such as tablets, browsers, and mobile phones.

To learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out of it, please see our Cookies Policy in Section 6. We use this data to personalize online marketing campaigns to be relevant to you and your interests in our services. By clearing your cookies in your browser settings you will no longer see personalized messages in this way but you continue to see ads over the internet that are not based on information you provided to QuizYourFriends.com.

In relation to Survey Data
4. Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it can be indexable by search engines. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and deleting your content but we cannot delete content from search engines so you need to be careful about information you make public.
5. Information we share
We do not share your information or data with third parties outside QuizYourFreinds.com except in the following limited circumstances:
On your instructions, we share your information or data if you choose to use an integration in conjunction with QuizYourFriends services, to the extent necessary to facilitate that use. See further information here on our API partners.
We also may have to share information or data in order to:
meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
enforce applicable policies, including investigation of potential violations.
detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of our users, the public or to QuizYourFriends.com and/or as required or permitted by law.
facilitate a sale, merger or change in control of all or any part of our company or business or in preparation for any of these events.
To improve our services.
To advertise to you.
Our service providers and other third parties we work with, place cookies when you visit our website and other websites or when you open emails that we send you, in order to provide you with more tailored marketing content (about our services or other services), and to evaluate whether this content is useful or effective. For instance, we evaluate which ads are clicked on most often, and whether those clicks lead users to make better use of our tools, features and services. If you don’t want to receive ads that are tailored to you based on your online activity, you may “opt out” of many of the companies that are involved in such tailoring by going to https://www.aboutads.info, https://preferences-mgr.truste.com/ or, if you’re located in the European Union, at https://www.youronlinechoices.eu. Opting out in this way does not mean you will not receive any ads; it just means that you will not receive ads from such companies that have been tailored to you based on your activities and inferred preferences.
It’s likely that your web browser has built-in tools to control cookies. Cookies are used for many purposes, including for Interest-Based Advertising. Below are some of the most popular browsers and information on how to find out more about the controls they offer, including deleting cookies and other site data. In general, these controls are likely to be found in the settings.
o Chrome (desktop) (mobile)
o Safari (desktop) (mobile)
o Internet Explorer (desktop) (mobile)
o Firefox (desktop) (Android)

Mobile Advertising ID Controls:
Most modern mobile devices (iOS 6, Android 2.3, and Windows 10 and above) provide advertising identifiers. These identifiers have different names depending on the brand of mobile device. For example, they are called Google Advertising ID (GAID) on Android devices and on iOS, they are called Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA). These operating systems let you see your advertising identifier in the settings of your mobile device, and your control how it is used. Below are instructions on accessing these controls, which include options to change your identifier and opt out of Cross-App Advertising. NAI does not operate or maintain any of these controls. The menus, features, or functionality may change at the discretion of mobile operating systems. Opting out through this method is likely to only affect Cross-App Advertising, but not the interest-based advertising based on your web activity. The privacy settings for your web and browser activities are independent and usually require you to use the controls in your browser.
o Android: Open the Google Settings app -> Ads.
o iOS 6 : Go to Settings -> General -> About -> Advertising from your iOS home screen.
o iOS 7+: Go to Settings -> Privacy -> Advertising
o Windows Mobile Device: Go to Settings -> Privacy -> Advertising ID
