Glo Ads and Personalization
We may display personalized content (including from third-party content publishers) and personalized ads (including sponsored content), based on information that we have collected via the Glo Platform, and through our widgets and buttons embedded on third-party sites. We also may report aggregated or de-identified information about the number of users that saw a particular ad or content and related audience engagement information to users of our Ad Services and to publishers of content on the Glo Platform. Advertisers who use our Ad Services may also provide us with information as part of their ad campaigns, including customer information (e.g., email addresses, phone numbers, or other contact information, demographic or interest data) in order to create custom audiences for personalizing their ad campaigns or for measuring the effectiveness of their ads; we only use this information to facilitate the particular advertiser’s campaign (including ad metrics and reporting to that advertiser); and we do not disclose this information to third parties (other than our service providers) unless required by law. We also do not disclose to the advertisers who use our Ad Services the names or contact information of their customers that were successfully reached as part of such campaigns without those customers’ consent.

How We Protect Your Information
The security of your information is important to us. Glo has implemented safeguards to protect the information we collect. However, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe, such as choosing a strong password and keeping it private, as well as logging out of your user account, and closing your web browser when finished using the Glo Platform on a shared or unsecured device.
Access and Amend Your Information
You may update or correct your account information at any time by logging in to your account. You may also make a number of other adjustments to settings or the display of information about you as described in more detail in the following section about Your Choices.
You may, of course, decline to submit information through the Glo Platform, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may also control the types of notifications and communications we send, limit the information shared within the Glo Platform about you, and otherwise amend certain privacy settings. Here is some further information about some of your choices: Anonymous Posts. You may post certain content anonymously, especially in the Inner Circle feature and answers. In such an event, your name is not displayed along with the content, and Glo does not associate such content with your user ID and other profile data. For further information see how anonymity works on Glo. Your Content. You may edit or delete the answers that you post at any time. Any questions you have posted may remain on the Glo Platform and be edited by other users. Any deleted content will be removed from third-party sites from which it has been shared via Glo’s standard sharing features; however we have no control over deletions or changes to your content if it has been shared manually by others. Emails, Text Messages, and Communications. When you join the Glo Platform by signing up for an account or creating a profile, as part of the service, you will receive the Glo digest containing content that we believe may match your interests. As permitted by law, you are also opting to receive other emails and text messages from us that may be of interest to you as a user of the Glo Platform. You can manage your email, text messages, and notice preferences in your account profile settings, under your Emails and Notifications settings, but note that you cannot opt out of receiving certain administrative or legal notices from us. If you opt-out of receiving emails and text messages about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you transactional e-mails and text messages about your account or any services you have requested or received from us. Third parties may comment on your postings within the Glo Platform. In your profile, under your Privacy Settings, you can adjust whether to allow people to comment on your answers and posts. You can also adjust permissions about who you allow to send you messages on the Glo Platform. Followers. You can block the ability of another Glo user to follow you by selecting the setting for this in the other user’s profile. You can change whether or not you follow other users. Topics. You can change topics that you follow or that your profile lists as areas that you know about. Credentials. You can change your credentials that are displayed in your profile or in connection with a specific answer. Indexed Search. In your privacy settings, you can control whether your profile and name is indexed by search engines. Changes to privacy settings may only apply on a going-forward basis; for example, your name (e.g., answers and profile) that has already been indexed by search engines may remain indexed for a period of time even after you have turned off indexing, as implementing this change is outside of our control. Deleted or Deactivated Account. If you choose “Delete Account” in your profile’s “Privacy Settings,” then all of your content will be removed from public visibility on the Glo Platform, and it may not be restored by us, even if you change your mind. If you choose “Deactivate Account,” then you will no longer receive any communications from us, and users will not be able to interact with you; however your content will remain on the Glo Platform. Once you deactivate your account, you can reactivate it any time by choosing to log in.
