any time by going to the Tapjoy Opt-Out page: http://home.tapjoy.com/info/third-party-opt-out/. You can also usually opt out of the receipt of all in-app interest-based ads by using your device’s privacy settings. Each operating system (e.g., iOS, Android) provides its own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of such in-app ads. Please review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for your device’s operating system in order to opt-out of interest-based in-app ads.

If while using one of our Partner Apps you recognize a problem with an integrated Tapjoy ad and notify us of the problem or otherwise contact us via email or with a question, we will ask for your email address or other contact information so that you can receive a response.

Where permissible under applicable law, we may also include Web beacons in e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether the message has been opened and for other analytics purposes.

To prevent Google Analytics from collecting or using your information, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.

We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures designed to safeguard, and to help prevent unauthorized access to, your information and to maintain data security. These safeguards take into account the sensitivity of the information that we collect, process and store and the current state of technology.
