These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Data unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites that do not use their services.
To determine if users have interacted with content across multiple devices and to match such devices, we may work with partners (Google Analytics, tawk.to, facebook or others.) who analyze device activity data and/or rely on your information (including demographic, geographic and interest-based data). To supplement this analysis, we may also provide de-identified data to these partners. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated or use this data to further analyze usage of Services across devices.
