Getting to know you
When you scroll and swipe across our sites and apps, we start learning what you like and get better at showing you more relevant stories, videos, and ads.
We also remember you when you return to our sites and apps, so you don't need to log in every time.
We achieve this using cookies and other tech with less fun names.
Data we collect
Every day, Verizon Media's sites and apps are building millions of stories and features. We want to make sure you’re seeing the ones most connected to your interests. That starts with data. We collect and rely on data from a variety of sources, such as information you provide to us, information from your devices, information from cookies and other technologies, information from other parties, and more.
Data done right
We use data to improve your experiences across our sites and apps.
It helps us bring you the stories you want to see, deliver agreed-upon services like email, carry out necessary business operations, and more.
We conduct these operations in accordance with the latest data protection laws.
How we use data
How advertising works
All the great stories you read, videos you watch, and services you use across Verizon Media's house of brands are brought to you by advertising. Data helps us do things like show you ads that are relevant to you and contact you with marketing. We use our technologies to sell and match ads and deliver them to you across your devices and on our properties as well as on sites and apps outside of our company. We also help advertisers and publishers connect to offer relevant advertising in their apps and websites.
It takes a team
It takes teamwork to bring you the best experiences with our brands.
We may provide information to our parent company Verizon, our partners, and other parties for product improvements, research and analysis, and to help them provide you more relevant experiences and ads.
This team can include:
- Our parent company Verizon, and other Verizon Media companies and affiliate brands
- Trusted partners who work on behalf of Verizon Media and under our directions
- Publishers, advertisers, and other companies
Take the controls
Your privacy is as important to us as it is to you.
That's why we give you controls.
You can see and manage your account information, marketing preferences, location data, search history, and more.
Protecting your data is our priority.
Our global security unit operates across our company, with a mission to monitor, detect, and investigate.
We also strive to build privacy and security directly into the products we create to provide you with better performance and protection.
We know security is important to you. Verizon Media has technical, administrative and physical safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access, use or disclosure of customer information we collect or store.
