Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites
YouNews does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks YouNews to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the YouNews Sites, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit networkadvertising.org.
Our Commitment To Data Security
YouNews uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information.

Once we receive your transmission of information, YouNews makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If YouNews learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. YouNews may post a notice on the YouNews Sites if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
