a. Ads for 4Sided
We advertise 4Sided on publishers such as Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube. When you use 4Sided or view a 4Sided ad on one of those publishers, whether or not you click on it, 4Sided, publishers, and other service providers that perform advertising-related services for us may collect personal information. We may also send them personal data for help optimize and measure our ad campaigns. Publishers may use personal information to optimize the kinds of ads you see and may offer choices about the way they handle personal information. For example, to learn about how Google processes your personal information in relation to serving ads and what choices you may have, visit their site here.
b. Ads on 4SidedIf you are subscribed to an ad-supported plan, the ads you see may be tailored for you based in part on the personal information we collect from your use of the Services (e.g. your year of birth), as well as information we receive from third parties. Under these plans, you cannot opt out of seeing ads or from having us measure your engagement with the ads, but you can opt out of certain ad targeting based on your activity outside of the 4Sided App or Website. To opt out of that kind of ad targeting, see the Choices section below.
You have the following choices when it comes to our use of your personal information:
a. Ad Targeting
• Opt Out of Advanced Ad Personalization
• On the ad-supported version of 4Sided, we will always personalize ads based on your interactions with the app. When Advanced Ad Personalization is enabled, we may further personalize ads based on your activities outside of 4Sided and permit our partners to use your data to improve their services. To opt out of this activity, please visit the settings of the 4Sided app, click on Legal & Privacy and Advertising Privacy, and disable “Advanced Ad Personalization.” Alternatively, if you opt out of cross-app advertising on your device, you will be opted out of this activity.
• Opt Out of Cross-App Advertising
• Cross-app advertising is the collection or use of data collected across different apps to infer your interests and tailor advertising. To opt out of cross-app advertising on your device (including the App), select “Limit Ad Tracking” in your iOS settings or “Opt out of ad personalization” in your Android settings. Details and instructions on how to find these settings on commonly used mobile devices can be found here.
• Opt Out of Interest-Based Advertising On Your Browser
• To opt out of interest-based advertising from many online advertisers (including some or all of 4Sided’s digital advertising partners) on your browser, please use the tools available at the appropriate links for your region below.
• In the US: Network Advertising Initiative (NAI); Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA)
• In Europe or the UK: European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA)
• In Canada: Ad Choices: Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC) / Choix de Pub: l'Alliance de la publicité numérique du Canada (DAAC)
b. Ad Measurement
The App includes software that enables third parties to measure ad viewership and similar statistics. When you enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” or “Opt out of ad personalization” option on your device, user-level demographic measurement on the App will be disabled for certain vendors. This will not disable ad measurement for aggregate statistical purposes. Details and instructions on how to find these settings on commonly used mobile devices can be found here.
c. Marketing Emails and Text Messages
d. Push Notifications
You can choose to receive or disable push notifications from us by adjusting your device settings. A shortcut to those options is available in the App’s settings.
8. Your Rights
If you would like to request to access, correct, update, suppress, restrict, or delete personal information, object to or opt out of the processing of personal information, withdraw your consent for the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, or if you would like to request to receive a copy of your personal information (to the extent these rights are provided to you by applicable law), you may contact us in accordance with the Contact Us section below. Please clearly describe your request. We will respond to your request consistent with applicable law.
In your request, please make clear what personal information you would like to have provided or changed, or whether you would like to have your personal information deleted. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the personal information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and you will be required to verify your identity before we begin implementing your request. If you do not provide information sufficient to verify your identity, we may, in some circumstances, be unable to carry out your request.
We will work to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable or as required by applicable law. Please note that if you choose to delete personal information, we may need to retain certain information for purposes such as recordkeeping, security, fraud prevention, legal requirements, and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion.
We retain personal information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained and consistent with applicable law. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:
• how long we have a legitimate business need in keeping the personal information, or, if our collection is based on consent, whether you have revoked your consent;
• the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us or keep using the Services);
• whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them); or
• whether retention is advisable to protect our rights or the rights or freedoms of our users (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).
10. Third-Party Access Points or Links
In addition, we are not responsible for the information collection, use, disclosure, or security policies or practices of other organizations, such as Facebook, Apple, Google, or any other app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider, or device manufacturer, including with respect to any personal information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with the Services.

For transfers from the EEA or the UK to countries not considered adequate by the European Commission, we have put in place adequate measures, such as standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission to protect your personal information. You may obtain a copy of these measures by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
12. Sensitive Information
Unless we request it, do not send or disclose to us any sensitive personal information (e.g., social security or social insurance numbers, copies of personal identification cards such as drivers licenses, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background, or trade union membership) on or through the Services, through customer service, or otherwise.

16. Additional Information for California Residents
The California Privacy Protection Act (“CCPA”) provides its residents with certain rights. If you are a California resident, the law permits you to request that we disclose to you the following information covering the past twelve months: the categories of personal information we collected about you and the categories of sources from which we collected such personal information; the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you; the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling (if applicable) personal information about you; the categories of third parties with whom we shared personal information about you; the categories of personal information about you that we sold and the categories of third parties to whom we sold such personal information (if applicable); and the categories of personal information about you that we otherwise shared or disclosed, and the categories of third parties with whom we shared or disclosed such personal information (if applicable). Additionally, you may request that we delete personal information we have collected from you as defined under the California Privacy Protection Act (“CCPA”).
To make a request to use one of these rights, please contact us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section above. You must use the email used in your account to make the request. Alternatively, you may designate an authorized agent to make a data request to us on your behalf under the CCPA. In order for such an agent to make a request, they must provide proof of their power of attorney and valid government identification of both the requester and the agent. In some instances, we may decline to honor your request where an exception applies, such as where the disclosure of personal information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another California resident. Consistent with California law, we will not charge you different prices or provide a different quality of service if you use your rights unless it relates to the value of the information.
