5. Web Beacons and Cookies.

PicThrive uses tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons and clear gifs, to collect information about you, for example, demographics, location and device information. Based on this information, PicThrive and third parties may be able to resolve your identity across multiple devices, for example, matching your IP address across multiple devices, in order to target you based on your online behavior. This information is collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and the applicable third party privacy policy, as described in section 3. Certain PicThrive features may rely on tracking technologies and by declining to accept cookies or by disabling JavaScript you may not have access to certain PicThrive features.

6. Third Party Software and Services.

PicThrive engages third parties who we share your information with and who may collect information from you. These third parties may use tracking tools in the form of, for example, cookies and APIs, which are embedded into PicThrive to enable these third parties to collect this information on our behalf. The Privacy Policy only applies to information that Adventure Soup collects, uses and discloses and does not apply to the collection, use and disclosure of information by third parties through third party services. Use of third party services may require you to accept a third party agreement. It is your sole responsibility to determine whether any third party agreement is acceptable to you.

7. California Do Not Track Disclosure.

Do Not Track, or DNT, is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of you. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Currently, there is no DNT technology standard and, as a result, PicThrive does not respond to DNT signals.

8. California "Shine the Light" Right.

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.82 grants you the right to request Adventure Soup’s disclosure of the categories of personal information we provided to third parties, and the names and addresses of these third parties, for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year.
