SundaySky takes consumer data privacy very seriously.
Last Updated: May 2018
SSKY is a pioneer in serving online video ads that are personalized to our customers’ customers. The objective is to present personalized video ads to viewers that express interest in our customers’ websites, as visitors browse the web. The rationale is that by doing that, the advertisements presented are more relevant to viewers. One may see these ads when visiting other websites that publish online video ads. SSKY strongly believes that this approach is beneficial for both our customers and their website visitors as each viewer is presented with the advertising message that will match his or her specific preferences. By doing this, viewers get ads that are more interesting for them, so they are less likely to be annoyed by them and are, as we’ve seen, significantly more likely to engage with them in search for additional information or to take advantage of a specific offer.

From time to time, SSKY may enable you to post content on its Website (i.e., such content may appear on a blog, in a community forum, etc.), or to provide SSKY with content that SSKY will post. In either scenario, by making available such content to SSKY, you expressly acknowledge, agree and warrant that: (i) such content may be published on the Website; (ii) such content may be used by SSKY in various other capacities and for various purposes as SSKY deems appropriate, including without limitation, improving the Platform and managing complaints; and (iii) such content does not violate any other person’s right to privacy, does not violate any applicable laws, and does not otherwise infringe any other party’s intellectual property rights. In addition to the foregoing, you should be aware that any content you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others. Based on the foregoing, we ask that any content you provide to SSKY DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE.

INFORMATION GATHERED WHEN USING THE WEBSITE
USE OF INFORMATION
We will store the information you provide and the information we collect about your activity on the Website throughout our databases (the “Databases”). We reserve the right to use such information for the following purposes:
TRANSFER OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY INFORMATION
SSKY does not knowingly collect personal information from minors who are under the age of 16 through the Website or the Platform. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without his/her consent, then he or she should contact SSKY at the information described below. If we become aware that a child under the age of 16 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete such information from our files. Further, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires parental consent for collection of data from children younger than the age of 13 years old. For tips on protecting children’s privacy online, generally, please view the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) website at http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser that allows SSKY or a third party to recognize you. Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (1) to enable certain functions; (2) to provide analytics; (3) to store your preferences; and (4) to enable ad delivery and behavioral advertising.
Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third party cookies.”
When you access and/or use the Website, SSKY or a third party may place a number of cookies in your browser. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used.
Each cookie serves one of four different purposes:
Finally, we may set cookies within emails we send to you (if you have consented to receiving emails from us). These cookies are used to track how often our emails are opened and clicked on by our customers. You can manage email cookies in the same way as website cookies, as explained above.
If you don’t like the idea of cookies or certain types of cookies, you can change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and to not accept new cookies. To learn more about how to do this, visit the help pages of your browser. Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or do not accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
If you no longer want to be exposed to SSKY retargeted video ads you can opt-out here. Please note that the opt-out mechanism relies on a cookie that is set on your browser in order to recognize you as a user who opted-out. You must opt-out again if you clear that cookie from your browser or if you use a different internet browser or computer.
We use additional technologies to help track user activities and preferences. For example, we use web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs). Web beacons are tiny graphics (about the size of period) with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on web pages or emails. They are used to track user activities and communicate with cookies. You cannot opt out of web beacons used in webpages, but you can limit their use by opting out of the cookies they interact with. You can opt out of web beacons used in emails by setting your email client to render emails in text mode only. Finally, we use local storage to facilitate certain functions, but we do not retain the data captured via local storage.
We and third parties engage in interest-based advertising provided by vendors in order to deliver advertisements and personalized content that we and other advertisers believe will be of interest to you. To the extent third-parties are using cookies or other technologies to perform these services, SSKY does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information for online, mobile, or email advertising, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. Advertisements, emails, and other messages may be delivered to you by SSKY or its service providers based on your online or mobile behavior, your search activity, your geographic location or other information that is collected by us or obtained from third parties. You may also see advertisements for third parties on the Website, other websites or services, or on your mobile device, based on your visits to, and activities on, the Website. Some of our vendors and we may use our own or third-party aggregated or anonymized personal information, demographic data, and other inferred commercial interests to assist in the delivery of our advertisements to you.
In addition, we and our business partners use third parties to establish deterministic or probabilistic connections among devices (such as smartphones, tablets, and computers) to deliver more relevant advertising to you and for advertising analytics and reporting purposes. This means that information about your use of websites or applications on your current device may be combined with information from your other devices. We also may share this information and other inferences with third parties to allow them to target advertising, personalize content, or analyze behavior. This allows, for example, advertisements you see on your tablet to be based on activities you engaged in on your smartphone. These business partners may share and combine information from cookies with identifiers (such as device IDs assigned by Google or Apple) and IP addresses to make connections among related devices. This also allows for a more personalized experience across the Website.
