THE INFORMATION JOKER MEDIA COLLECTS
Information You Provide Us
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, participate in any interactive features of the Joker Media Sites, fill out a form, participate in a contest or promotion, make a purchase, apply for a job, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, phone number, fax number, financial information (credit card number, expiration date and security code), and any other information you choose to provide.
When you use the Joker Media Sites on Facebook or use your login credentials from Facebook or another social network service, we may collect and record the information you provide us voluntarily through Facebook or other social network service in accordance with the policies and terms of Facebook or other social network service and your settings with that service. The types of personal information collected may vary depending on your activity, social network settings, and the permissions you grant, but may include your name, Facebook user identification number, email address, gender, current city, profile picture, and age or date of birth.
If you consent to allow a Joker Media Site or one of our partners access information about your location, we may collect information about your precise location and share it with third parties for the purpose showing ads that are targeted to your interests. We also use your IP address to derive information about your general location (for example, your city or town).
Automatically Collected Information
When you interact with a Joker Media Site or a website, we collect certain information about your mobile device or computer system, including your browser type, browser language, platform type, MAC Address, IP Address, mobile advertising ID, Facebook ID, cookie information, and information about your interactions with the Joker Media Sites, such as referring / exit pages and URLs, clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order in which those pages were viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of your request.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We and our partners, affiliates, and analytics and other providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags, scripts, and SDKs to analyze trends, administer the Joker Media Sites, advertise, and to gather demographic information about our users. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.
Cookies are a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters that help us improve the Joker Media Sites and your experience, see which areas and features of the Joker Media Sites are popular, and count visits. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in the Joker Media Sites or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. An SDK is a piece of computer code that developers include in their mobile applications.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
Joker Media and partners that use Joker Media technology may obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through the Joker Media Sites or our partners’ services. For example, we may collect information about you from third parties, including but not limited to game partners, identity verification services, advertisers, mailing list providers, and publicly available sources.
Joker Media allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Joker Media Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, device, or mobile application, the advertisements and links that appear on the Joker Media Sites or our partners’ sites. These third parties automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, SDKs, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content. Joker Media does not provide any personal information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Joker Media to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the target audience.
USE OF INFORMATION
We use the information we collect to operate, maintain, and provide you the features and functionality of the Joker Media Sites. We also use the information we collect to show ads and report on how they perform, including to show ads that are targeted to users’ interests across their devices, limiting the number of times users see ads, customizing ads to users’ locations, determining how users respond to ads, and reporting on the effectiveness of ads. Finally, we use the data we collect to protect the rights of Joker Media and others, including to detect, prevent, investigate, and deter fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
- With vendors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf;
- When you post information publicly, such as in discussion boards, messages and chat areas, within your public profile page, etc., that information will be publicly available;
- In response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law or legal process, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements;
- If we believe your actions are inconsistent with our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of Joker Media or others;
- In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company;
- Between and among Joker Media and our current and future parents, affiliates, subsidiaries and other companies under common control and ownership; and
- With your consent or at your direction.
In addition, companies that use Joker Media’s technology to collect data about their users will have access to that data and may use it for their own purposes, and may share such data with third parties such as advertising partners. Finally, we may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
The profiles you create and any content that you post on the Joker Media Sites will be publicly accessible unless otherwise indicated. You may change the privacy settings of your profile through your account portal. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you first launch any of our applications that collect location information, you will be asked to consent to the application’s collection of this information. If you initially consent to our collection of location information, you can subsequently stop the collection of this information at any time by changing the preferences on your mobile device.
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. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Joker Media Sites.
