The use of information collected through this Website shall be limited to the following purposes of: (i) the reason for which you signed up to receive communications from Many Links, and (ii) providing a service to you and other users of the Website (“Users”).

This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect:

  • any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Website.

Some of our clients provide Many Links and its affiliates with personally identifiable information about their customers so we can perform various services such as online advertising campaign analysis. In addition, as part of our services, we may collect information about user interaction with client websites and provide that information along with our analysis to the client. All of this information belongs to our client and is governed by their privacy policy, and as their customer, you should review their privacy policies on their websites that you visit. Many Links and its affiliates use such information only as directed by our client and we make no other use of this personally identifiable information.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Website. By accessing or using this Website, you agree to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Policy).

Information We Collect

We collect information to provide better experiences to the Users of this Website – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, the products and services that matter most to you, or which digital experiences you may not yet be aware of but might enjoy.
Many Links collects and processes two basic types of information from and about Users:

  • Personal information: This is information that personally identifies one individual from another or enables you to be individually contacted (for example, names, e-mail addresses and other contact information). This information is voluntarily provided to us by Users and is used by us for the purpose of responding to user submissions and fulfilling requests for further information about our services.
  • Aggregate user and tracking information: This information gives us insights on how Users use our Website. This data is anonymous and does not contain any personal information. We use this information to ensure that our Website, e-mails and marketing efforts continue to appeal to Website visitors and clients.

This information is collected in the following ways:

  • Information you Voluntarily Provide to Many Links. Many Links only collects personal information that you voluntarily provide, for example, when you use our “contact us” feature, sign up for a newsletter, post content within our forums or other interactive features. Examples of such personal information that you provide to us may include, among other information, your name, physical address and email address. Under such circumstances you consent to our use/processing of the information you provide consistent with this Privacy Policy.
  • Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies. When you visit the Website, Many Links and its partners may use cookies or similar technologies to collect analytical information to analyze trends, administer the Website, track Users’ interaction with the Website, and to gather demographic information about our User base as a whole. Our Website uses cookies to distinguish you from other Users of our Website. This helps us to provide you with a positive experience when you browse our Website and also allows Many Links to improve its Website and services. Cookies are a common part of many commercial websites that allow small text files to be sent by a website, accepted by a web browser and then placed on your hard drive as recognition for repeat visits to the Website. Every time you visit our Website Site, our servers, through cookies, pixels and/or GIF files, collect basic technical information such as your domain name, the address of the last URL visited prior to clicking through to the Site, and your browser and operating system. We may also use third party analytical tools (e.g. Google Analytics) to analyze activities on the Website and use of the Website. You do not need to enable cookies to visit the Website; however, some parts of the website and some services may be more difficult or impossible to use if cookies are disabled. Some Many Links cookie files remain on your computer’s hard drive unless and until you manually delete the file. Many Links cookie files do not contain personal information. Please see Many Links’s Cookie Policy for more information on Many Links’s use of cookies on this Website and how you can disable or restrict the use of cookies.

Any personal information collected by Many Links is controlled by Many Links at its Fort Worth, Texas headquarters.

How we use Information we Collect

We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personally identifiable information:

  • To present our Website and its contents to you.
  • To provide, maintain, protect and improve our services, to develop new ones, and to protect our Users.

  • To notify you about changes to our Website or any services we offer or provide through it.
  • In any other way we may describe when you provide the information.

The information is stored for a time period and in a manner relevant to responding to your request unless you request that it be removed. The information you provide us will be shared with Many Links employees and service providers to the extent necessary to administrate our systems and/or accommodate your request.

As discussed above, we use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Information we Share

We may disclose aggregated information about our Users, and information that does not identify any individual (non-personally identifiable information), without restriction, including with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.

Many Links does not share, sell or distribute personal information collected from Users with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Many Links unless one of the following circumstances applies:

  • For external processing. We may provide personal information to our subsidiaries and affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • For legal reasons. We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Many Links if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
    o comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
    o enforce applicable terms of service, including investigation of potential violations.
    o detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
    o protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Many Links, our Users, our customers or the public as required or permitted by law. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection.
  • In connection with a Many Links sale transaction. We may share personal information with a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Many Links’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Many Links about our Website Users is among the assets transferred. If Many Links is involved in such a transaction, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected Users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
  • To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
  • With your consent.

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which the information originally was collected.

When we transfer your information to recipients in other countries (such as the U.S.), we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we will comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to recipients in countries outside of the EEA. With respect to transfers of personal information to the U.S., Many Links is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission, regarding the transfer of personal information from the EEA to the U.S. Click http://www.manylinks.net/privacy-policy.html#privacy-shield-policy to view our EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Privacy Policy.

Transparency and Choice

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect and how we use it, so that you can make meaningful choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your personal information:

  • Tracking Technologies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies (including cookies associated with our services), or to alert you when cookies are being sent. To learn how you can manage your cookies on our Website, please see or Cookie Policy

  • Targeted Advertising. If you do not want us to use personal information that we collect or that you provide to us to deliver advertisements according to our target-audience preferences, you can opt-out by selecting “decline” on our cookie notice banner. If you previously accepted cookies on our website and want to opt-out, please clear your cookies and select “decline” on our cookie notice banner.

However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI“) on the NAI’s website.

At times, our Website may provide interactive areas, such as chat rooms, forums and message boards available to Users. You are not required to provide any personal information when using these areas, but you may choose to do so. We strongly recommend that you DO NOT use your personal information as your user name and DO NOT post any personally identifiable information on line, since such information will be publicly available. We cannot ensure the security of any information you choose to make public in a chat room, forum, or message board. Also, we cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these areas.

Accessing and Correcting your Information

You may contact us at http://www.manylinks.net/#contact_form to request access to, to correct, to update or to delete any personal information that you have provided to us. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps (including seeking additional information or documentation) to verify your identity before updating or removing your information. Upon receiving your email with the request to update or remove your information, our privacy team will log the receipt of your request and will contact the appropriate data holder within the company in order to enable them to process your request. The information you provide us may be archived or stored periodically by us according to backup processes conducted in the ordinary course of business. Information stored as part of this backup process will be deleted in due course on a regular schedule. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

Information Security

Many Links understands that the safety of your personal information is extremely important to you. Accordingly, we work hard to protect Many Links and our Users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. In particular:

  • All personally-identifiable information is hashed using the SHA-256 algorithm immediately upon receipt.
  • Many Links relies upon the CDMON infrastructure for continuous auditing by security accreditation bodies, including ISO 27001, FedRAMP, DoD CSM, and PCI DSS.i.
  • Personally-identifiable information is securely stored in an encrypted, distributed database, protected with Amazon’s Key Management Service.
  • Data stored on CDMON is encrypted both at rest and in transmission using AES-256
  • Access to hashed personally-identifiable information is limited to Many Links’s engineering group. Outside of engineering, only our proprietary applications may access hashed bulk files on behalf of Many Links employees. Human access to raw personally-identifiable information is prohibited and restricted by our software.

Due to the nature of the Internet and related technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and Many Links expressly disclaims any such obligation.

Many Links, S.L. - Privacy Shield Policy

This Privacy Shield Policy (“Policy”) describes how Many Links and its subsidiaries and affiliates in the United States (“US”) (“Company,” “we,” or “us”) collect, use, and disclose certain personally identifiable information that we receive in the US from the European Union (“EU Personal Data”). This Policy applies to the following US affiliated entities: Facebook, Google, SnapChat, Twitter, Pinterest. This Policy supplements our Website Privacy Policy located at http://www.manylinks.net/privacy-policy.html#privacy-policy, and unless specifically defined in this Policy, the terms in this Policy have the same meaning as the Website Privacy Policy.
Many Links recognizes that the EU has established strict protections regarding the handling of EU Personal Data, including requirements to provide adequate protection for EU Personal Data transferred outside of the EU. To provide adequate protection for certain EU Personal Data about consumers, clients, and business received in the US, Many Links has elected to self-certify to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework administered by the US Department of Commerce (“Privacy Shield”). Many Links adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability.

For purposes of enforcing compliance with the Privacy Shield, Many Links is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the US Federal Trade Commission and/or the US Department of Transportation. For more information about the Privacy Shield, see the US Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website located at: https://www.privacyshield.gov.

Personal Data Collection and Use

Our Website Privacy Policy located at http://www.manylinks.net/privacy-policy.html#privacy-policy describes the categories of EU Personal Data that we may receive in the US as well as the purposes for which we use that EU Personal Data. We process EU Personal Data for the following purposes: business-intelligence analytics, and targeted advertising. Many Links will only process EU Personal Data in ways that are compatible with the purpose that Many Links collected it for, or for purposes the individual later authorizes. Before we use your EU Personal Data for a purpose that is materially different than the purpose we collected it for or that you later authorized, we will provide you with the opportunity to opt out. Many Links maintains reasonable procedures to help ensure that EU Personal Data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

We may collect the following categories of sensitive EU Personal Data: personally identifiable information, to include: name, email, phone number, address, social media usernames, and data-subject behavioral information. When we collect sensitive EU Personal Data, we will obtain your opt-in consent where the Privacy Shield requires, including if we disclose your sensitive EU Personal Data to third parties, or before we use your sensitive EU Personal Data for a different purpose than we collected it for or than you later authorized.

Data Transfers to Third Parties

Third-Party Agents or Service Providers. We may transfer EU Personal Data to our third-party agents or service providers who perform functions on our behalf as described in our Website Privacy Policy, including: business-intelligence analytics, data matching with other consumer-based databases, targeted advertising. Where required by the Privacy Shield, we enter into written agreements with those third-party agents and service providers requiring them to provide the same level of protection the Privacy Shield requires and limiting their use of the data to the specified services provided on our behalf. We take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure that third-party agents and service providers process EU Personal Data in accordance with our Privacy Shield obligations and to stop and remediate any unauthorized processing. Under certain circumstances, we may remain liable for the acts of our third-party agents or service providers who perform services on our behalf for their handling of EU Personal Data that we transfer to them.

Third-Party Data Controllers. In some cases, we may transfer EU Personal Data to unaffiliated third-party data controllers. These third parties do not act as agents or service providers and are not performing functions on our behalf. We may transfer your EU Personal Data to third-party data controllers for the following purposes: business-intelligence analytics, data matching with other consumer-based databases, targeted advertising. We will only provide your EU Personal Data to third-party data controllers where you have not opted-out of such disclosures, or in the case of sensitive EU Personal Data, where you have opted-in if the Privacy Shield requires consent. We enter into written contracts with any unaffiliated third-party data controllers requiring them to provide the same level of protection for EU Personal Data the Privacy Shield requires. We also limit their use of your EU Personal Data so that it is consistent with any consent you have provided and with the notices you have received. If we transfer your EU Personal Data to one of our affiliated entities within our company group, we will take steps to ensure that your EU Personal Data is protected with the same level of protection the Privacy Shield requires.
Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement. Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your EU Personal Data in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Security

Many Links maintains reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect EU Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction in accordance with the Privacy Shield.

Access Rights

You may have the right to access the EU Personal Data that we hold about you and to request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your EU Personal Data, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.
