INFORMATION SHARING
We may share the information we collect with other parties described in this section.
Affiliates. We may share information with our affiliates, which will handle the information under their own respective privacy policies. Per our agreements with our affiliates, the affiliates are required to keep your information confidential.
Services Providers. We may employ third-party companies and individuals to facilitate services for the Apps, to provide services on our behalf, to perform service-related functions (for example, payment processing, maintenance, database management, marketing, security and fraud purposes, App or advertising analytics, and improvement of the App’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how the Apps are used. Per our agreements, the service providers are required to keep your information confidential.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with applicable laws and regulations. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of The DB Method or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, harmful, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Aggregated or Anonymized Information. We may share information that has been anonymized or aggregated, or any other technical information, without limitation.

DIGITAL ADVERTISING & ANALYTICS
We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information advertising providers collect about your use of the Apps and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising. We adhere to the {Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this activity}.
For more information on how to opt out of receiving interest-based advertisements, or to learn more about interest-based advertising please visit the Network Advertising Initiative at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or the Digital Advertising Alliance at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. For interest-based advertising in apps please use the DAA’s “AppChoices application” available at http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices. If you opt out, you may need to renew your opt-out choices exercised through the DAA AppChoices tool. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your application. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests.
We may also work with third parties that collect data about your use of the Apps and other apps over time for non-advertising purposes. The DB Method uses Google Analytics, together with Google Firebase and other third-party services, to improve the performance of the Apps and for analytics and marketing purposes. Google Firebase collects the following types of events: User interaction events in the app; content consumption data; device information such as manufacturer, model, and OS version; IP address and geographic location of the device based on the IP address; other general anonymous usage statistics. For more information about how Google Analytics collects and uses data when you use our Apps, visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and to opt out of Google Analytics, visit tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

THIRD-PARTY LINKS AND TOOLS
The Apps may provide links to third-party websites or apps. We distribute the Apps through Apple and Google distribution platforms. We do not control the privacy practices of those websites or apps, and they are not covered by this Privacy Policy. You should review the privacy notices of other apps that you use to learn about their data practices.
The Apps may also include integrated social media tools or “plug-ins,” such as social networking tools offered by third parties. If you use these tools to share personal information or you otherwise interact with these features on the Apps, those companies may collect information about you and may use and share such information in accordance with your account settings, including by sharing such information with the general public. Your interactions with third-party companies and your use of their features are governed by the privacy notices of the companies that provide those features. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy notices of any accounts you create and use.
