Controlling the Use of Your Information

Disclosure of Information to Third Parties

We will never share your PII with non-affiliate third parties without your consent or as otherwise outlined in this policy. Non-PII collected by our advertising technologies may be shared with our partners for the purposes of delivering targeted online advertisements or aggregated reporting. The provision of your personal data to government institutions is only possible within the framework of the national law of the Federal Republic of Germany or in compliance with international governance.

We may also share your information for the following purposes:

  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
  • if Sociomantic is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information,
