ROUSE respects your preferences concerning the treatment of personal information that we may collect from your use of the Service. This policy lets you know how we collect and use your personal information, and how you can control its use. This policy describes the broadest potential use of personal information throughout the Service that is consistent with the terms of this policy. However, please note that we may make significantly less use of your personal information.

If you access the Service through Facebook Connect, your use of the Service is also subject to Facebook's terms of service and privacy policy. When you access the Service through Facebook Connect, you allow ROUSE to access certain information from your Facebook profile. The information you allow us to access may vary according to the privacy settings you establish at the Facebook. For example, we may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by you, Facebook and your preferences:

  • Your first and last name

  • Your user ID, which may be linked to publicly available information such as your name and profile picture

  • Your networks

  • Your gender

  • Your birthday

  • Names and user IDs of your friends

  • Any other information that you have made public

By accessing the Service through Facebook Connect, you authorize ROUSE to collect, store and use in accordance with this Privacy Policy any and all information that you allow Facebook to provide to ROUSE through the Facebook application programming interface (API).

Electronic Communications Protocols and Cookies.

We may collect information about your use of the Service through electronic communications protocols and cookies. As is true when you visit most websites, ROUSE may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type) and date and time. ROUSE may also use cookies, embedded URLs, embedded pixels and other similar technologies to capture additional information.

ROUSE Cookies.

ROUSE's servers will query your browser to see if there are "cookies" previously set by the Service. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to store with a web browser so that it can later be read back from that browser. Cookies for the Service may collect a unique identifier, user preferences and profile information. ROUSE also uses cookies to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personally identifiable information. Some cookies may remain on a user's computer after the user leaves the website. While we do not offer an opt-out for cookies, browsers provide you with information and control over cookies. You can set your browser to alert you when a cookie is being used, and accept or reject the cookie. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users can generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the Service, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for completing a transaction.

Third-Party Cookies and Functions.

ROUSE may use third parties to serve or track advertisements on websites. These third parties may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to, among other things, enable such third parties to record which ads your browser has loaded and which pages you may have been viewing when the ads were delivered or accessed. The information collected through these functions is subject to the privacy policies of those third parties.

Embedded URLs.

ROUSE may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the site without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the site, but is not associated with personal information and is not used beyond the session.

Embedded Pixels.

ROUSE may use embedded pixel technologies on selected pages for the purposes of identifying unique user visits to the Service, as opposed to aggregate hits, and to identify the pages viewed. We may also use embedded pixel technologies to determine whether the recipient of an e-mail has opened a particular e-mail.

Combining with Personal Information.

The information provided by these technologies may be re-associated with personal information by ROUSE.
