We reserve the right to make use of any such aggregated data as we see fit.
Third Party Links and Websites. Our Services may contain links to and from the websites of third parties.

4. How Do We Respond to ‘Do Not Track’ Signals?
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
To make our Services and services work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, shopping cart, or other preferences) over a period of time, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Most modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the options or preferences menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links for commonly used browsers may be helpful:
- Cookie settings in Chrome
- Cookie settings in Firefox
- Cookie settings in Microsoft Edge
- Cookie settings in Safari web and iOS
Personalized Advertising. We may also use targeted advertising cookies, such as Google Ads, to deliver tailored advertising on our Services and other websites that you may visit. You can learn more about how to control advertising cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the DAA’s Consumer Opt-Out link for browsers, or the DAA’s opt-out link for mobile devices. Please note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications and may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests.
You may opt out of advertising cookies at any time through the Settings>Privacy menus in the HED Social app.

2. Additional Disclosures for Data Subjects in the EEA
Our legal bases for collecting and using your Personal Data include:

- Our legitimate business interests. For example, fraud prevention, maintaining the security of our network and services, direct marketing to you, and maintaining, analyzing, and improving our products and services.
- Compliance with a mandatory legal obligation. For example, maintaining administrative records which are subject to mandatory retention periods. We may also collect your Personal Data to record your requests to exercise your rights and to verify your identity for such requests.

7. International Transfers of Data
Any data that you provide to us may be accessed, shared or processed by our offices, located in the United States, and service providers located in the United States, if such data transfer is necessary for the specific purpose for which you submitted your data (such as the provision of goods or services under a written contract). This may entail a transfer of your personal information across international borders. The data protections standards may differ and be lower than the standards enforced in your jurisdiction. We maintain appropriate safeguards as required by applicable law for any personal information transferred internationally.
8. Children’s Privacy
The Services are not directed at individuals under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided in the “Contact Information” section below. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information.
9. Change of Control
Personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other change in control. If we sell, merge or transfer any part of the business, part of the sale may include your personal information.
10. Security and Data Retention
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. For example, when possible, we use encryption to transfer and store data. We further limit access to this data using access controls and confidentiality commitments.
However, no website, application, or transmission can guarantee security. Thus, while we have established and maintain what we believe to be reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information obtained through the Services, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
