WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We (and the vendors we hire to perform business functions on our behalf) and third parties who have integrated their technologies into our platforms and services may collect, receive, and develop several categories of personal information about you depending on the nature of your interactions with us:
Identifiers: We may collect your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile phone number, mailing address, date of birth and social media account handles or usernames. You may also submit photos and videos.
Demographic and Classification Information: We may collect your zip code, age, gender, race, and political affiliation.
Browser, Usage, and Device Information: We use tracking tools like cookies and pixels to automatically collect information about your interactions with our Platforms, such as your IP address and other unique identifiers for the computer, mobile device, tablet or other device (“Device”), including the hardware model and mobile network information. We collect information about your use of the Platforms, including your browser type; operating system; activations; listening times; what areas of the Platforms you access and for how long; search terms you enter; how long you stay on a page; which hyperlinks and content or advertisements you click on.

Services like Facebook Connect give you the option to post information about your activities on our Platforms to your profile page to share with others within your network. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a social media application or website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their “connections” or if information about you is otherwise accessible through your “connections'” web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third party website or interactive service.
Other users: Other users may decide to provide us with your personal information (such as Identifiers) so that we may invite you to join Hannity.com or so that we may facilitate communication between users of the Platforms.
We combine information: When we get information from other sources, we may combine that with information we already have. We may combine information that we have collected offline with information we collect online or through the Platforms. We may also aggregate your information with other consumers’ information to understand preferences and trends within your peer group over time.

When you use the Platforms, we, our service providers, and advertising partners may place cookies and similar tracking technologies on your computer or Device in order to collect information about your online web-browsing activities over time and across different websites and online services or mobile applications, in order to serve you ads or other content personalized to your interests. This form of advertising is referred to as Interest Based Advertising (“IBA”). In order to personalize these ads or content, we or our advertising partners or service providers may connect and/or share personal information about you either to data you provided to us or to Browser/Usage/Device Information and Location Information collected about you.
You can opt out of being tracked online for IBA purposes by going to http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN or http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1. You can opt out of being tracked for IBA purposes on mobile apps by going to https://youradchoices.com/appchoices.Another way to opt out of IBA is by clicking on the Advertising Options Icon featured on certain Hannity.com ads on third-party websites.

Choices you make are device-specific and browser-specific.

Please note that even if you opt out of IBA, you may still receive advertisements from us; they just won’t be customized based on your web-browsing activities on third-party websites. Please also note that if you opt-out of IBA, we may still track your visits to the Platforms for our own analytics, operations and security purposes.
