2. How our services are funded
Instead of paying to use No1friend and the other products andservices we offer, by using the No1friend Products covered by these Terms, youagree that we can show you ads that businesses and organisations pay us topromote on and off the No1friend Company Products. We use your personal data,such as information about your activity and interests, to show you ads that aremore relevant to you.
Protecting people's privacy is central to how we've designed ourad system. This means that we can show you relevant and useful ads withouttelling advertisers who you are. We don't sell your personal data. We allowadvertisers to tell us things such as their business goal, and the kind ofaudience that they want to see their ads (for example, people between the agesof 18-35 who like cycling). We then show their ad to people who might beinterested.
We also provide advertisers with reports about the performance oftheir ads to help them understand how people are interacting with their contenton and off No1friend. For example, we provide general demographic and interestinformation to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a woman betweenthe ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Madrid and likes software engineering) tohelp them better understand their audience. We don't share information thatdirectly identifies you (information such as your name or email address that byitself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give usspecific permission. Learn more about how No1friend ads work here.
We collect and use your personal data in order to provide theservices described above for you. You can learn about how we collect and useyour data in our Data Policy. You have controls over the types of ads andadvertisers you see, and the types of information we use to determine which adswe show you.
