I. What technologies are used?
|Type of technology||Description|
|Cookies||A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Riot New Media Group, Inc. features and functionality. Any browser visiting our Sites may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners, or service providers.|
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie may help us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to or interact with our Sites without signing in again. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by our Sites when you return to one of our Sites. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a Site or a browser session).
|Pixels||A pixel is a tiny image that may be found within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.|
|Local storage||Local storage enables a Sites to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve our Site experiences, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences, and speeding up Site functionality.|

|Advertising||Cookies and similar technologies help us show relevant advertising to you more effectively, both on and off our Sites and to measure the performance of such ads. We use these technologies to learn whether content has been shown to you or whether someone who was presented with an ad later came back and took an action (e.g., made a purchase) on our Site or another site. Similarly, our partners or service providers may use these technologies to determine whether we’ve shown an ad or a post and how it performed or provide us with information about how you interact with ads.|
We may also work with our customers and partners to show you an ad on or off our Sites, such as after you’ve visited a customer’s or partner’s site or application. These technologies help us to provide aggregated information to our customers and partners.

We or our service providers use these technologies to understand, improve, and research products, features and services, including as you navigate through our Sites. We, or our service providers, use these technologies to determine and measure the performance of ads or posts on and off our Sites and to learn whether you have interacted with our Sites, content, or emails and provide analytics based on those interactions.

IV. Your choices.
V. Opt Out of targeted advertising
Some mobile device operating systems such as Android and iOS provide the ability to opt out of the use of mobile advertising IDs for ads personalization. You can learn how to use these controls by visiting the manufacturer’s website for both Android and iOS.
VI. Browser controls
VII. What is Do Not Track?
“Do Not Track” is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. However, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, the Riot New Media Group, Inc. currently does not respond to or alter their practices when they receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser.
VIII. Other helpful resources
We adhere to self-regulatory principles for interest-based advertising and participate in industry opt-outs from such ads. This does not opt you out of receiving advertising altogether. You will continue to receive other ads from advertisers not listed with these self-regulatory tools or you may receive ads that are not personalized to you.
