2. How We Get Data About You

2.1 Cookies and Data Collection Tools

We use cookies (small files that websites send to your device to uniquely identify your browser or device or to store data in your browser) for things like analyzing your use of the services, making for a smoother user experience when interacting with the site, including storing your language preference and session data. We use web pixels (small objects that allow us to measure the actions of visitors and users of the services) for things like identifying whether a page was visited, identifying whether an email was opened, and advertising more efficiently by excluding current users from certain promotional messages, or personalizing emails we send you.

As detailed in our Cookie Policy, Clear Astrology and service providers acting on our behalf (like Google Analytics and third-party advertisers) use server log files and automated data collection tools like cookies, tags, scripts, customized links, and web pixels (together, “data collection tools”) when you access and use the services. These data collection tools automatically track and collect certain system data and usage data (as detailed in Section 1) when you use the services. In some cases, we tie data gathered through those data collection tools to other data that we collect as described in this privacy policy.

Clear Astrology uses the following types of cookies:

  1. Security: cookies used to enable you to access the services;
  2. Session State: cookies that track your interactions with the services to help us improve the services and your browsing experience, remember your session details, and enable processing of your service purchases. Note: these cookies are strictly necessary for the services to work properly: if you disable them, certain functionalities will break or become unavailable.

You can set your web browser to alert you about attempts to place cookies on your computer, limit the types of cookies you allow, or refuse cookies altogether. If you do, you may not be able to use some or all features of the services, and your experience may be altered or less functional.

2.2 Analytics

We use third-party browser and mobile analytics services like Google Analytics. These services use data collection tools to help us analyze your use of the services, including information like the third-party website from which you arrive, how often you visit, events within the services, usage and performance data, and where the application was accessed from. This data helps us to improve the services, better understand how the services perform on various devices, and provide information that may be of interest to you.

2.3 Online Advertising

We use third-party advertising services like Facebook, Google Ad Services, and other ad networks and servers to deliver advertising about our services on other websites and applications you use. The ads may be based on things we know about you, like your usage data and system data (as detailed in Section 1), and information that these ad service providers have about you based on their tracking data. The ads can be based on your recent activity or activity over time and across other sites and services and may be tailored to your interests.

Depending on the types of advertising services we use, they may place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, phone, or another device to collect data about your use of our services. They may access those tracking technologies in order to tailor advertisements to you.
