Maven | Privacy Policy

  1. Cookies and Other Web Technologies

    1. Web Beacons

      Web beacons (also known as web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be used for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail). Maven, or third-party service providers acting on our behalf, may use web beacons and pixel tags to help us analyze usage and improve our functionality.

    2. Third Party Services

      Maven uses third-party services, listed below, to help us analyze certain online activities and improve our services. For example, these providers help us measure the performance of our online campaigns or analyze visitor activity on the Site. These outside services may also collect Personal Information about you and your online activities and place cookies on your computer's hard drive or your mobile device's memory or use web beacons to collect or receive information from the Services and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide analytics and to target ads. The information practices of these outside services are not covered by this Privacy Policy. We cannot access, nor do we have any control over, the cookies or other web technologies they may use. We send data to third-party analytics providers, so we can use their tools to understand how you and other Maven users use our services.

      We use advertising cookies to present you with opportunities to purchase Maven products on our website, and retargeting cookies, to present you with Maven advertising on other websites based on your interaction on Maven’s website.

      Social media tools, like widgets and plug-ins, are used so you can share information from Maven on other sites such Facebook, Twitter or by email. These interactive mini-programs collect your IP address, record the pages you visit on Maven, and set cookies that will enable the widget to function properly. Your interactions with these widgets are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them, not by Maven’s Privacy Policy. We also use the Facebook and Twitter pixel tags to help us understand how effective our marketing is on those sites.

      We use the following cookies and data analytics platforms:
