Third Party Content And Links To Third Party Sites that appear in the application

The Application may contain content that is supplied by a third party (such as a nonprofit cause or sponsor), and those third parties may collect web site usage information and your Device Identifier when web pages from the Application are served to your browser. In addition, when you are using the Application you may be directed to other sites that are operated and controlled by third parties that we do not control. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any of these third party sites. For example, if you tap on a nonprofit organization’s or sponsor’s name, the tap may take you off the Application onto a different web site. These other web sites may appear in “baby browsers” within the Application and may send their own cookies to you, independently collect data or solicit Personal Information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. We encourage you to note when you leave our Application and to read the privacy statements of all third party web sites before submitting any Personal Information to those sites.
