  • Online Identifiers: IP address, advertising ID, unique device ID, and other information about your device, your internet service provider, and internal and third party IDs that have been assigned to you.

We do not store your credit card number. If you upgrade to Cozi Gold from an iOS or Android app, you will pay for the upgrade directly through Apple or Google, respectively, and we will not have access to your credit card information.
  • Your Cozi Content: Information that you add when using any of our features, including the Cozi calendar or a third party calendar (such as Google) that you have linked to the Cozi service, appointments, events, Lists (Shopping and To Do), photos, Journal, and contacts information. For example, you may choose to add information about your medical or legal appointments; children's or school events; medications, book or video titles, and personal products; financial, medical, and children's information, and personal reminders).

Where/How Do We Collect Information About You?

We collect information about you from a number of sources:

From you. We collect your contact and registration/account information when you provide it to us on our Services.

From Cookies & Other Technologies.

What are Cookies & Other Technologies?

  • Cookies. A "cookie" is a tiny file that's stored on your computer. It contains a unique identifier, as well as the address and other information about the website you are visiting. Cookies help us know who you are when you visit our Services. For example, although you may not log-in when you visit our Services, we can use cookies to recognize that you have visited the Services in the past. This means that we can decide whether or not to show you the same ad, whether you may be interested in an offer from one of our Brands or advertisers, or whether there is content that you may prefer to see first when you are on one of the Services.
  • Web Beacons, Pixel Tags and Other Tracking Technologies. Web beacons, pixel techs and other "tracking technologies" are small strings of code placed on a web page or in an email or advertisement. These technologies allow your browser to recognize and store certain types of information such as cookies previously set, the time and date that you viewed the page with the beacon and a description of that page.
  • Device Fingerprinting. Device fingerprinting is the process of analyzing and combining sets of information elements from your device's browser, such as JavaScript objects and installed fonts, in order to create a "fingerprint" of your device and uniquely identify your device and apps.
  • App Technologies. There are a variety of tracking technologies that may be included in our apps, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. For example, our apps may include third party SDKs, which is code that sends information about your use to a server, and is in effect the app version of a pixel. These SDKs allow us track our conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional functionality.
  • Location-Identifying Technologies. We use your IP address to determine general information about your location like the geographic region or country in which you are located in order to provide the appropriate service.

Some information about your use of the Service and third party services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services. Cozi and third parties may use this information for purposes such as to distinguish between the different devices that you use, and deliver relevant ads and content to you on the Service and third party services.

Can You Opt Out?

In most cases, yes! There are some cookies that we need in order to operate the Services. If you deleted those cookies, the website would no longer function (as an example, if we can't remember what account you belong to, we cannot show you your information on the Services). You can always decide to opt-out of or delete the third party cookies (cookies set by Advertisers and Data Partners) on our Services. Keep in mind, if you block cookies, you may not be able to view or access some of the features of our Services. Visit our section on your privacy choices "How Can You Control Our Use of Your Information" for more information on how to opt-out.

From Others.

  • Service Providers. We work with service providers who collect information on our behalf in order to provide services to us. We only allow our service providers to use your personal information in connection with the services they provide us.

If you voluntarily choose to enter a Promotion, we may share your information with third parties as set forth in the official rules that govern the Promotion as well as for administrative purposes and as required by law (e.g., on a winners list).
  • Data Partners We provide certain third party partners with information about users for purposes of tailoring advertisements (such as third party offers related to your Shopping Lists), measuring and improving our Service and advertising effectiveness, and enabling other enhancements. We may also offer you the ability to link your Cozi account to a Third Party Service in order to retrieve certain data about your account on that Service.

For more information about how these platforms handle your information, please refer to their respective privacy policies and terms of use.
  • Third Party Features. We may allow you to connect our Service to a third party service or offer our Service through a third party service ("Third Party Features"). If you use a Third Party Feature, both Cozi and the applicable third party may have access to and use information associated with your use of the Third Party Feature, and you should carefully review the third party's privacy policy and terms of use. Some examples of Third Party Features include the following:
    • Brand Pages. We may offer our content on social networks such as a Facebook and Twitter. Any information you provide to us when you engage with our content (such as through our brand page) is treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Also, if you publicly reference our Service on a Third Party Service (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with Cozi in a tweet or post), we may use your reference on or in connection with our Service.
    • Platform Linking. We may offer you the ability to link your Cozi account to a Third Party Service in order to retrieve certain data about your account on that Service. For example, if you link your Cozi account to your Google calendar, the linking may allow us to obtain information such as your username, e-mail address, and calendar content. For more information about how these platforms handle your information, please refer to their respective privacy policies and terms of use.
  • Legal Compliance, Business Transfers, and Other Disclosures. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with the law or in response to a law enforcement agency's request; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of Cozi or our users; or (d) protect Cozi's property rights. Over time, we may reorganize or transfer various assets and lines of business. We reserve the right to disclose or transfer any information we collect to third parties in connection with any proposed or actual purchase, sale, lease, merger, foreclosure, liquidation, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of Meredith or companies in the Meredith Family.
