    1. Our Use of Cookies

    We and our third-party service providers set and use cookies and similar technologies to store and manage user preferences, enable content, gather analytic and usage data, and deliver targeted advertising. Cookies that we use are typically assigned to one of the following categories, depending on their function and intended purpose:

    • Essential cookies enable you to navigate our website and to use our services and features. Without these cookies, our website will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like, and we may not be able to provide certain core functions and features.
    • Analytics cookies collect information about the use of our website and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us the most frequently visited pages and analyze site traffic. We use them to look at overall patterns of usage on the site, rather than the usage of any particular individual.
    • Social Media cookies collect information about your visit to our site, but only when you are logged in to your social media account.
    • Customer interaction cookies allow us to communicate with you, including real-time communication through our chat feature.
    • Marketing cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads for web properties here (Digital Advertising Alliance’s WebChoices).

    Most browsers are set up to accept cookies automatically. You can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser to inform you before the cookie is stored on your computer. Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals.

    1. Social Media

    We use social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn) to engage with the public. When you engage with us through our social media channels, the platform providers will also process information about you. For further information about how such a provider may use your information, please consult their privacy policy.

    1. Your Communication Preferences

    If you wish to opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us, you may do so by either via the settings on the App, or by contacting us as provided in Section 16 (Contact Us). Although you may opt-out of the use of your information for marketing purposes, we may still use your information for non-marketing purposes.

  • Data Deletion and Management.
  • You may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in your SABO Account by logging in to your Account. If you connected your SABO Account to a third-party service, like Facebook or Google, you can change your settings and unlink from that service in your Account settings. You are responsible for keeping your Personal Data up to date. If you would like to cancel your SABO Account entirely, you can do so by logging in to your Account. Please also note that your User Contributions may continue to be publicly available on the SABO Platform in association with your first name, even after your SABO Account is cancelled.

    1. California Shine the Light 
    1. California's “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section §1798.83) permits California residents that have an established business relationship with us to request certain information regarding our disclosure of certain types of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year.

    From time to time, we may provide links to unaffiliated third-party websites. Those websites operate independently from us and our affiliates and may have their own privacy statements in place which we commend you review if you visit any linked websites.
