If you are located outside of the United States, the information you provide to us is being transmitted to us and processed in the United States and will be protected subject to this Policy and United States laws, which may not be as protective as the laws in your country.

We also use cookies and similar technology (as described below) to collect information for the purpose of customizing the content you receive.

We also may collect information from third party websites with whom we connect. As an example, if you connect to our site via Facebook, Facebook provides us with certain demographic information from your Facebook account to the extent that you elect to make publicly available on Facebook.

User Content may be also used by Derive Media LLC as described in our Terms of Use. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to include in such User Content.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer and allows Derive Media LLC to recognize you as a user when you return to the Derive Media LLC website from the same computer and browser. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Derive Media LLC Website or Services you visit.

Third Party Advertisers
Advertisements, promotions and offers from third party advertisers may be provided to you while you are visiting the Derive Media LLC Website. We may also use third party advertising agencies to serve ads on our behalf or the behalf of third-party advertisers (e.g., retailers of goods or services). These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. Derive Media LLC does not have access to or control of the cookies or action tags that may be placed by the third party advertisers.

Data Security

But no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.
