Business transfers. We may share any collected information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a Ciceron Service or division, a merger, a consolidation, an asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
Legal requirements. We may disclose any collected information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, and other law enforcement measures, and to comply with legal or regulatory obligations.
With your consent. We may share any collected information when you expressly or implicitly consent to such disclosure. For example, if you use our Services to email or text an article to a friend, we would disclose your name to that friend together with the content you directed us to send.
Wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers. Wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers also may collect contact and other information and precise location data from our mobile services users through processes we do not control. You should check the privacy policies of your wireless carriers and automobile manufacturers for additional information.
Aggregated and anonymous information. Subject to applicable law and your opt-out choices described below, and as we deem appropriate, we may share with third parties or allow them to collect directly any aggregated or other information that does not directly identify you as an individual. Such information may be used and combined with other information collected by the receiving parties pursuant to their own respective privacy policies, which we don’t control. For example, we may share or authorize the collection of such information by service providers that help us analyze and improve our Services, provide us with ratings and ranking data, help us to create personalized content, or tailor advertisements to your interests. We may also share or authorize the collection of such information by sponsors or their agencies to help them measure the impact of their sponsorship campaigns.
You have the following choices to update, correct and limit the collection and use of information gathered through our Services.
Registration information. Contact us to correct or update any registration information you provided to us, opt out of future email newsletters from us, or cancel your Ciceron newsletter subscription or other Ciceron registrations. For your protection, we may only act on requests with respect to the registration data associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may ask you to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. We may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a correction, update or cancellation.
Cookies. You have the option to set your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, notify you when a cookie is set, or delete cookies.

Note that if you opt out, you may still receive the same number of sponsorship credits as before but they may not be as relevant to your interests. Opting out of third-party interest-based sponsorship credits is a cookie-based process and will only affect the specific computer, device, and browser on which your opt-out choice is applied.

Precise location information.

Some Internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, our Websites do not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. Ciceron takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard. To learn more about “DNT”, please visit All About Do Not Track.
Our Services contain links to other sites, applications, platforms and services operated by third parties whose privacy policies we don’t control and may differ significantly from ours. For instance, clicking or tapping on an advertisement or some third-party logos on the Ciceron Services will take you to an entirely different site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that we would not. You also may access Ciceron content and the Ciceron Services from a third-party site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that we would not. Ciceron is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party services and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any such sites or services you visit or access.
