      Our uses of such Technologies fall into the following general categories:

    5. ADVERTISING AND SDKS

      Company may allow other companies, called Third-Party advertising servers or advertising networks, to serve advertisements within the Service. For example, we use Third-Party software development kits (“ SDKs”), as part of the functionality of our Service. Third-Party SDKs may allow Third Parties including advertisers to collect your Personal Information to provide content that is more relevant to you. These Third-Party advertising servers or advertising networks use Technologies to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the Service. They automatically receive your IP Address when this happens. They may also use other Technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize their advertising content. Further, these advertisers may also serve ads to you on other websites (including ads for Company products and services) based on information collected from you while using the Service. For example, Company uses Google's “remarketing” service to target Company ads to you based on your prior use of the Service when you visit other sites in Google's content network.

      You should be aware that advertisers may target advertisements to Users based on a certain audience or audience segment. If you respond to this type of targeted advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.

      You should consult the respective privacy policies of these Third-Party ad servers or ad networks. Company's Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such advertisers or other websites. You may opt out of tracking as described in Section 6.
