We collect the Information described above for business and commercial purposes in accordance with the practices described in this Policy. Our business purposes for collecting and using Information include:
When you submit Information through the Platform, whether by directly providing it to us upon request or voluntarily disclosing to us, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Information as set forth in this Policy. Notwithstanding the above, we may use Information that does not identify you (including Information that has been aggregated or de-identified) for any purpose except as prohibited by applicable law. For more information on how we use tracking technologies to collect this Information for analytics and advertising, and your rights and choices regarding them, see the “Automated Data Collection, Analytics, and Advertising” and “Your Rights and Choices” sections below.
Whether or not you voluntarily provide Information to us, any time you visit our Platform, we, our advertising and analytics providers, or our service providers collect, process, and share Automatically Collected Data in accordance with this Policy. This Automatically Collected Data may be used in furtherance of the purposes described above and also in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as optimizing the Platform, evaluating the popularity of content, generating statistics and developing marketing plans, and otherwise for general administrative, analytical, research, optimization, and security purposes.
We may provide functionality that will allow you to connect to our Platform through a social network such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (each, a “Social Network”). If you connect through a Social Network, we may collect Information from your profile, such as your name, username, and e-mail address, and we will use that Information for the purposes set forth herein. In addition, our Platform offers social sharing features which will allow you to “Share” or “Like” on a Social Network. If you decide to use such features, it may allow the sharing and collection of Information both to and from such Social Network.
We may offer our content through a Social Network. Any Information you provide to us when you engage with our content (such as through our brand page or via Facebook Messenger) is treated in accordance with this Policy. Also, if you publicly reference our Platform on a Social Network (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with Wonderstorm in a tweet or post), we may use your reference on or in connection with our Platform.
Our Platform also includes links that hyperlink to other websites, platforms, and other services not operated or controlled by us.

For information on your rights and choices regarding how we share Information, please see the “Your Rights and Choices” section below.
We use certain automatic analytics and tracking technologies to assist us in performing a variety of functions, including storing your Information, collecting Information, understanding your use of the Platform and customizing the content offered to you on the Platform. Such technologies include:
We use analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to help us understand how users access and use the Platform. In addition, we work with agencies, advertisers, ad networks, and other technology services to place ads about our products and services on other websites and services. For example, we place ads through Google and Facebook that you may view on their platforms as well as on other websites and services.
As part of this process, we may incorporate tracking technologies into our own Platform (including our Websites, Apps and emails) as well as into our ads displayed on other websites and services. Some of these tracking technologies may track your activities across time and services for purposes of associating the different devices you use, and delivering relevant ads and/or other content to you (“Interest-based Advertising”).
We also use audience matching services to reach people (or people similar to people) who have visited our Platform or are identified in one or more of our databases (“Matched Ads”). This is done by us uploading a customer list to another party or incorporating a pixel from another party into our own Platform, and the other party matching common factors between our data and their data or other datasets. For instance, we may incorporate the Facebook pixel and SDK on our Websites and Apps and may share your email address with Facebook as part of our use of Facebook Custom Audiences.
For further information on the types of tracking technologies we use on the Platform and your rights and choices regarding analytics, Interest-based Advertising, and Matched Ads, please see the “Information Collected Automatically” and “Your Rights and Choices” sections.
We retain the Information we collect as described in this Policy for as long as you use the Platform or as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, resolve disputes, establish legal defenses, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes, enforce our agreements, and comply with applicable laws.
We take reasonable administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards to help protect Information against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk.
If you believe your Information is being improperly used by us or any third party, please immediately notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Platform is intended for and targeted to adults. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or “COPPA”) from children. If you are under 13, please do not send any Information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child, we will delete that personal information in accordance with COPPA. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that we have collected personal information in violation of COPPA, please contact us at email@example.com. We will remove the personal information in accordance with COPPA. We do not knowingly “sell,” as that term is defined under the CCPA, the personal information of minors under 16 years old who are California residents without prior consent.
If you are a California resident under 18 years old and registered to use the Platform, you can ask us to remove any content or information you have posted on the Platform. To make a request, email us at the email address set out in “Contact Us” section with “California Under 18 Content Removal Request” in the subject line, and tell us what you want removed. We will make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view, although we cannot ensure the complete or comprehensive removal of the content and may retain the content as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You may access, update, or remove certain information that you have provided to us through your account by visiting your account settings. Please note that we will retain and use information about you as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
As described above, we use the Information we collect from you to send you newsletters or other communications, including those promotional in nature. If you do not want to receive such communications, you can opt-out by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our communications. You may also at any time opt-out of receiving communications from us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Opt-Out of Email Communications.” Please note that you cannot opt-out of non-promotional emails, such as those about your account, transactions, servicing, or our ongoing business relations.
If you have opted-in to receive push notifications on your device, you can opt-out at any time by adjusting the permissions in your device or uninstalling our Apps.
Please note that your opt-out is limited to the email address or device used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions.
You can opt-out of the collection and use of certain Information, which we collect about you by automated means, by changing the settings in the device you use to access the Platform. In addition, your browser may tell you how to be notified and opt-out of receiving certain types of cookies. If you use multiple browsers on your device, you will need to instruct each browser separately. Your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of the Platform.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take action with respect to “Do Not Track” signals. For more information on “Do Not Track,” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
You can stop all collection of Information via an App by uninstalling the App. You can also reset your device Ad ID at any time through your device settings, which is designed to allow you to limit the use of information collected about you. You can stop all collection of precise location data through an app by uninstalling the app or withdrawing your consent through your device settings.
Please be aware that if you disable or remove tracking technologies some parts of the Platform may not function correctly.
Google provides tools to allow you to opt out of the use of certain information collected by Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and by Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The companies we work with to provide you with targeted ads are required by us to give you the choice to opt-out of receiving targeted ads. Most of these companies are participants of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) and/or the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the targeted ads provided by these companies, and how to opt-out of receiving certain targeted ads from them, please visit: (i) for website targeted ads from DAA participants, https://www.aboutads.info/choices; (ii) for app targeted ads from DAA participants, https://www.aboutads.info/appchoices; and (iii) for targeted ads from NAI participants, https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Opting out only means that the selected participants should no longer deliver certain targeted ads to you, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., in connection with the participants’ other customers or from other technology services).
To opt-out of us using your Information for Matched Ads, please contact us as set forth in the “Contact Us” section below and specify that you wish to opt-out of matched ads. We will request that the applicable party not serve you matched ads based on Information we provide to it. Alternatively, you may directly contact the applicable party to opt-out.
You may also limit our use of Information collected from or about your mobile device for purposes of serving targeted ads to you by going to your device settings and selecting “Limit Ad Tracking” (for iOS devices) or “Opt-out of Interest-Based Ads” (for Android devices).
Please note that if you opt-out using any of these methods, the opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt-out. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any opt-out options or programs, or the accuracy of any other entities’ statements regarding their opt-out options or programs.
If you are accessing the Platform outside the United States, including in the EEA, we transfer Information for processing in the United States and other jurisdictions. By providing Information to us for the purpose of using the Platform, or otherwise using the Platform, you consent to the processing of such Information in the United States and other jurisdictions as set out in this Policy. The transfer of Information to the United States and other jurisdictions as set out in this Policy is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us for your use of the Platform.
Please note that the United States and other jurisdictions may have data protection laws different from those in your country of residence. For personal data transferred from the United Kingdom, the EEA, or Switzerland, we will provide appropriate safeguards, such as through the use of standard contractual clauses.
We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. In the event we make changes to this Policy, such policy will be re-posted in the “Privacy” section of our Platform with the date such modifications were made indicated on the top of the page.

Nevada law (NRS 603A.340) requires each business to establish a designated request address where Nevada consumers may submit requests directing the business not to sell certain kinds of personal information that the business has collected or will collect about the consumer. A sale under Nevada law is the exchange of personal information for monetary consideration by the business to a third party for the third party to license or sell the personal information to other third parties. If you are a Nevada consumer and wish to submit a request relating to our compliance with Nevada law, please contact us as at email@example.com.
These additional disclosures apply only to California residents. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides additional rights to know, delete and opt-out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing personal information to provide notices and means to exercise rights.
In the past 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information enumerated in the CCPA:
For further details on information we collect, including the sources from which we receive information, review the “Information We Collect” section above. We collect and use these categories of personal information for the business purposes described in the “How We Use the Information We Collect” section above, including to manage our Platform.
We do not generally sell information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood.
To the extent “sale” under the CCPA is interpreted to include the activities set out in this Policy, such as those disclosed in the “Automated Data Collection, Analytics, and Advertising” section above, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity. We disclose the following categories of personal information for commercial purposes: identifiers, characteristics, commercial or transactions information, internet activity, geolocation data, and inferences drawn. Please review the “Sharing of Information” section above for further details about the categories of parties with whom we share information.
You have the right to know certain details about our data practices in the past 12 months. In particular, you may request the following from us:
In addition, you have the right to delete the personal information we have collected from you.
To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request through our Online Form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of the request. We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 days. We may require specific information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. If we are unable to verify your identity, we may deny your requests to know or delete.
To the extent Wonderstorm sells your personal information as the term “sell” is defined under the CCPA, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us to third parties at any time. You may submit a request to opt-out by clicking Do Not Sell My Personal Information or emailing us at email@example.com.
You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. However, we will require written proof of the agent’s permission to do so and verify your identity directly.
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of any your rights.
Under certain circumstances, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, a business may be required to provide detailed information regarding how that business has shared that customer’s personal information (as that term is defined in Cal. Civ. Code Section1798.83) with third parties for direct marking purposes. However, the foregoing does not apply to businesses like ours that do not disclose personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes without prior approval or give customers a free mechanism to opt out of having their personal information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
You have the right to obtain confirmation that we hold personal data about you, request access to and receive information about the personal data we maintain about you, receive copies of the personal data we maintain about you, update and correct inaccuracies in your personal data, object to the continued processing of your personal data (and our providing it to third parties for processing) for marketing purposes or purposes materially different than for which it was original collected or subsequently authorized by you, and have the personal data blocked, anonymized or deleted, as appropriate. The right to access personal data may be limited in some circumstances by local law. To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at:
214 Main St., #328
El Segundo, CA 90245
We may ask you to provide additional information for identity verification purposes, or to verify that you are in possession of an applicable email account.
Please understand, however, that we retain data as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, and may continue to retain and use such data even after a data subject request for purposes of our legitimate interests, including as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent fraud, and enforce our agreements. We reserve the right to retain an archive of such personal data for a commercially reasonable time to ensure that its deletion does not affect the integrity of our data; and we further reserve the right to retain an anonymous version of such personal data.
Data protection laws in Europe distinguish between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as “controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “processors”). Under data protection laws in Europe, we are a controller of the personal data collected as you interact with our Websites, emails, Apps, and advertisements.
Data protection laws in Europe require a “lawful basis” for processing personal data. Our legal bases for collecting personal data include where: (a) it is necessary for performance of a contract between us; (b) you have given consent to the processing for one or more specific purposes, either to us or to our service providers or partners; (c) it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or (d) it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party, and your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms do not override those interests. Where applicable, we will transfer your personal data to other jurisdictions subject to appropriate or suitable safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses.
If you have any issues with our compliance, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection regulator in your jurisdiction.
