Use of Your Information

Tracking on the Maven Website and Emails
The Maven website may use “cookies” to remember your preferences and to maximize the performance of our website and services. Using cookies on our websites provides benefits to you, such as allowing you to maintain your account login information.
Similarly, we may also place Web beacons in our emails to measure the effectiveness of our email campaigns by identifying the individuals who open or act upon an email message, when an email message is opened, how many times an email message is forwarded, the type of software, device, operating system and browser used to deliver the email and any URL accessed through our email message. This information may also be used to evaluate our online advertising campaigns or to tailor promotions and other marketing messages to you.
To measure site activity and provide a better user experience, we may allow our service providers or business partners to compile information from the cookies, Web beacons or other technologies on our websites which may include information about your visit (such as demographic data, browser type, IP address, pages visited, activities conducted on the page and the day and time of your visit). We may also allow third party advertising and personalization partners to use this information to develop personalized content and appropriate advertising based on your visits over time on the Maven website and other non-GM affiliated websites.
At this time, we do not honor “do not track” signals from a website browser. However, you may refuse or delete cookies. Please refer to your browser Help instructions to learn more about cookies and other technologies and how to manage their use. If you elect to refuse or delete cookies, you will need to repeat this process if you use another computer, or change browsers. If you choose to decline cookies, some of the functionality of a website may be impaired.
We adhere to the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising (www.AboutAds.info). If you do not wish to receive personalized advertising or content from us on non-GM affiliated websites, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Opt-Out page (www.AboutAds.info/choices) or click on the AboutAds icon on a Maven advertisement and follow the instructions on how to opt out.
Opting out of relevant advertising will not opt you out of all advertising, but rather only those advertisements that are personalized to your interests.
You can decline cookies by using the functionality on your web browser. If you choose to decline cookies, some of the functionality of a website may be impaired.
