We may collect from you “Personal Information” (meaning, information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort be used to identify an individual) and “Non-Personal Information” (meaning, information that cannot be used to identify you), as follows:
This information that is automatically collected is referred to herein as ““Product Data”. Some of the data types above are considered as Personal Information under applicable data protection laws, and specifically, IP address, and in some jurisdictions, the GUID, and we will treat such data accordingly. We work very hard and invest substantial resources to maintain the security of the data we collect. These efforts include the utilization of state-of-the art data cleaning, hashing, and aggregation methods and procedures to de-identify or delete Personal Information from the information we collect automatically through your use of the Video Ad Blocker Plus Product. For example, IP address is stored by us as hashed data, and the URLs of the visited websites are filtered prior to being processed, as further detailed above.
The Product Data is processed solely for the purposes of providing and improving the Video Ad Blocker Plus Product’s services, as set out under the “How Is the Data Used?” section hereunder.
We use the Product Data mainly for the purpose of providing and improving the Services (as defined below), meaning to identify websites that generally include ads, including websites with adult-related content, in order to provide contextual warnings to our users and to block the ads on these sites. This data is scrubbed and cleaned on your device prior to any other use, with a view to removing information that could allow your identification with reasonable means. All of these uses are referred to herein as our “Services”. The processing of the Product Data is in this context necessary for a user-facing feature, namely the provision of the Services as described above. For instance, without access to such data, some of the ad-blocking and adult-related contextual warnings would not work.
You acknowledge that by downloading and installing the Video Ad Blocker Plus Product, you request us to provide you with the Services. We further use your information in the following ways:
(i) to improve and further develop the Services and for Product-related analytical and research purposes;
(ii) with respect to Voluntarily Provided Data, we use it solely to provide technical support, to respond to your inquiries, and to notify you of updates to the Video Ad Blocker Plus Product;
(iv) to comply with applicable laws and regulations, or any requests from government agencies or legal authorities.
We do not share Personal Information collected from you with third parties or any of our partners, except to the extent we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary as follows:
(i) to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request;
(ii) to investigate, detect, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or other wrongdoing, suspected fraud or security issues;
(iii) with service providers performing technical or other Product-related services for us, as data processors, and subject to our instructions. These service providers may include our affiliated companies.

“Personal information” as used in this section has the meaning given to it in the CCPA, which defines Personal Information as any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to a particular California resident or household (but excluding publicly available data). Accordingly, this section does not apply to aggregated information or other CCPA-exempt categories of Personal Information.

The following list describes the categories of Personal Information about California residents that we have collected in the past twelve (12) months, and the sources from which we have collected such information.

Any Personal Information provided as part of any such request will be used only for the purpose of verifying the requester’s identity and authority and of responding to the request.

We will use reasonable efforts to respond to each request within 45 five days after we receive and verify it; if we are unable to do so, we will to inform you that we may need an additional 45 days in order to respond and provide the reason for such need.
