THIRD PARTY INTERACTIVE FEATURES
COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Web beacons (also known as clear gifs) are used in combination with cookies to help Site operators understand how you interact with their websites. A web beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a site or in an email. The use of a clear gif allows the Site to measure your actions in opening the page that contains the clear gif.
Provide general internal and customer analytics.
Study traffic patterns in order to improve website performance, to customize the user experience, and to better match the users’ interests and preferences. For example, Gruvi keeps track of the domains from which people visit, and also measures visitor activity on Gruvi websites. However, these tracking records are performed and maintained in ways that keep the data non-identifiable.
Keep track of preferences you specify while you are using Gruvi products or services.
Support security measures, such as requiring re-login into a Gruvi product or service after a certain amount of time has elapsed.
If you login to our products through the Site, cookies can also be used to save the username so that we can process the saved login information and quickly log you into the product.
Assist in identifying possible fraudulent activities.
Tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.

The Adobe Flash Player is an application and web tool that allows rapid development of dynamic content. Flash (and similar applications) use technology to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies. Gruvi employs Adobe Flash cookies in certain situations where we use Flash to provide some content such as video clips or animation. Gruvi does not use Flash cookies to serve interest-based advertising. Flash cookies are managed through the Flash Player Settings Manager, which is a different interface than the one provided by your web browser. This Settings Manager lets you manage global privacy settings, storage settings, security settings, and automatic notification settings. Beginning with Flash Player 10.3, the Flash Player Settings Manager can be accessed locally on your computer: in the Control Panel on Windows and in System Preferences on Mac. Users of other operating systems and earlier versions of the Flash Player should manage their global privacy settings using the Flash Player Settings Manager provided online from Adobe.

Gruvi is fully compliant with the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We are committed to respect the law and our users’ rights to privacy while they use our services.
When interacting with one of our campaigns- be it through a website, interactive ad, or video ad- the data we collect (impressions, interactions) is non personally identifiable unless otherwise specified, in which cases full consent will be requested. These cases include asking for a user’s email for the purposes of sending showtime reminders or a user’s address after a quiz so they can receive their prize.
Interaction and impression data are collected for the purposes of measuring a campaign’s progress and success, but no personal information is stored in that process.
In accordance with regulation, users are invited to request complete information regarding what Gruvi knows about them and to delete such information if necessary. For this purpose, users should contact Gruvi’s Data Protection Officer, João Lago, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
