Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June 21, 2017

We are pleased that you have elected to visit the website, mobile-optimized version of the
website, and/or digital applications (collectively, the “Website” or the “Site”) to which this
Privacy Policy applies and which are operated by, or on behalf of, Project M Group, LLC
(“Project M”, “us” or “we”). By visiting the Website, or providing your information to us, you
are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Please exit the Website immediately
if you do not accept this Privacy Policy or are accessing the Website in a country or other
territory where use of the Website is not permitted.
Project M respects privacy rights, and is committed to safeguarding the Personal Information
entrusted to us by our clients and visitors to our Site. Project M has implemented this Privacy
Policy to govern the use of Personal Information that we collect through the Website, including
Personal Information you send to us. This Privacy Policy does not govern Personal Information
collected from any other source or in any other manner. This Privacy Policy is intended to
provide you with information as to: (i) the type of information that is collected, (ii) how the
collected information is used and with whom it is shared; (iii) how we intend to protect the
information; and (iv) how you can access such information and have it modified and/or removed.
This Privacy Policy may be changed from time to time, and we reserve the right to make changes
without prior individual notice. Such changes are effective upon publication of the revised
Privacy Policy. Please review this Privacy Policy often so that you will remain abreast of Project
M’s current policies, including its policies concerning the gathering and use of information that
may be collected on our Site. You are responsible for making sure you are aware of the
provisions of Project M’s most current Privacy Policy. You can tell when the Privacy Policy
was last modified by checking the “last updated” date that appears at the top. The Privacy Policy
is incorporated by reference in and made a part of our Terms and Conditions of Use of the Site.

California Privacy Rights.

Under California law, California residents who have provided personally identifiable information
to a company may have the right to request a list of all third parties to whom that company had
disclosed such information for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes during the preceding
calendar year, along with a list of the categories of Personal Information that had been so
disclosed unless the company has a policy of not disclosing such information if the user has
exercised an option to opt out of such information sharing. Project M gives you the right to opt
out of having your Personal Information disclosed to third parties for the third parties’ direct
marketing purposes. Because Project M provides you with an opportunity to opt out of such
disclosure, Project M does not have to provide you with such lists. For the avoidance of all
doubt, these opt-out options are available for all users and are not just limited to California users.
If you are a California resident who would like information on how to exercise your rights
concerning third party disclosures under California law, you may send an email to

Collection and Use of Information

Personal Information

Personal Information is information that uniquely identifies you, such as your name, address,
email address and telephone number. At times, Project M may collect your Personal
Information. For example, we collect your Personal Information if you create an account or
register for portions of the Site that may require registration, purchase a product on the Site, enter
a sweepstakes or contest, complete a survey, subscribe to our magazines or newsletters, or send
us an email, and provide us with your name, address, telephone number and/or email address. If
you are purchasing goods at our Website, you may be asked to provide certain financial
information, such as credit card information to our payment processers (which will be used
solely for your purchase and not retained). We may also collect your Personal Information if
you post, display and/or publish User Content on the Site. Additionally, when you enter any
password-protected area of the Site, then the Site will recognize who you are and will collect
information that you submit. Any information collected about you from the Site may be
associated with other information that Project M has collected about you.
REMEMBER to exercise discretion and caution when you post content on the Site – any
Personal Information so posted will not be held confidentially, and it may be publicly viewable.
With respect to all communications you make to or through the Site, including but not limited to
feedback, questions, comments, suggestions and the like: (i) you shall have no right to
confidentiality in your communications and Project M shall have no obligation to protect your
communications from disclosure; (ii) Project M shall be free to reproduce, use, publish, display,
disclose and distribute your communications to others without limitation, in any way now known
or hereafter devised; and (iii) Project M shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how,
information, data content or techniques contained in your communications for any purpose
whatsoever, including but not limited to the development, production and marketing of products
and services that incorporate such information, without any compensation to you.

Financial Information.

Project M may require billing and payment information such as credit and debit card information
when you subscribe to a newsletter or magazine or purchase a product or otherwise engage in a
payment transaction on the Site. However, almost all payment transactions entered into on the
Site are processed directly by third party payment processors. In any instances where another
third party payment processer is utilized, that payment processer will be identified when you
engage in the particular transaction. You will provide your payment information to a third party
payment processor and their privacy policy and other terms and conditions of use will govern use
and disclosure of that information. We encourage you to read carefully the third party
processor’s privacy policy. Project M does not collect or store your financial information.
Our payment processers process your payment for any purchases or sales made on the Site, to
protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as may be reasonably
needed to manage our business in connection with your transaction.

IP Address

An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by
your internet service provider when you log on. Your IP address is not linked to your Personal
Information but Project M does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who
threaten the Site or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose
problems with the Site and to gather broad demographic information.

Location Information.

Project M may, and may permit our advertisers to, collect your location via certain services we
provide through digital applications, wireless access protocol services (“WAP Services”) or
mobile phone service (“Mobile Services”). We, or the service provider, will inform you of such
collection at the time you use the service. Your use of any or all of these services constitutes
consent by you to collect, use, and disclose information concerning your location.

Social Networks

If you use your login credentials from a social networking site (e.g., Facebook or Twitter) to log
in on the Project M Site, we may receive information from the social networking site in
accordance with the terms and conditions of that site. You can request to share your information
with these social networking sites, and Project M will share information with them in accordance
with your request. However, said information, once disclosed to a social networking site, will be
subject to the terms and conditions and any other policies of such social networking site.

Other Information

When you access the Website, Project M will automatically receive some information about your
use of the service. The type of information that is automatically collected by Project M includes
such things as the date and time of access of the Website, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the
computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your
browser software and operating system, the referring website address, and the specific activities
you are engaged in while visiting the Site. This aggregate tracking information is used to help
Project M improve and enhance the website experience for all of its visitors.

Your Consent

We only collect, use and/or disclose your Personal Information with your consent. Your consent
may be implied from the circumstances or may be expressly given for a particular purpose. For
example, when you submit your Personal Information to us and post to our Site you are
consenting to the collection, handling, use and disclosure of your Personal Information for the
purposes identified or apparent at the time of collection and as otherwise described in this
Privacy Policy.

Use of Your Personal Information

We use your Personal Information for the purposes for which it is submitted, such as to reply to
your emails, an interactive chat session, and inquiries, to allow you to participate in promotions,
such as contests, and to purchase products through the Site. Your Personal Information may also
be used in the following ways:
* to deliver materials, information and services to you,
* to give you notice of and/or resolve any problems that may arise in connection with our
* to better understand the needs and interests of our customers,
* to analyze the success of our products and services and the Site,
* to manage the Site’s interactive functionality,
* to help Project M improve and enhance the Site experience for all of its visitors, and
customize the content on our Site,
* for compliance with Project M’s legal and regulatory obligations,
* as otherwise reasonably required to provide customer services and maintain the Site,
* to investigate potential breaches of the Terms and Conditions of the Site,
* to investigate potentially unlawful activity,
* for any other purpose outlined in this Privacy Policy and/or the Terms and Conditions of
which this Privacy Policy is a part, and
* as permitted by law.

We may also use your Personal Information to contact you via direct postal mail and/or
electronically to the extent such activity is permitted by law, and, with your consent, regarding
your relationship with Project M. This information may also be used to help Project M and its
commercial partners deliver targeted advertisements, promotions and other initiatives to you.

Opting in and opting out of electronic communications.

You may opt out of receiving electronic communications, such as emails, from Project M at any
time by (i) sending an e-mail directly to Project M at; (ii) writing to
Project M’s corporate offices at Attention: Privacy Info, Project M Group LLC, c/o WeWork, 81
Prospect St., Brooklyn, NY 11201; or (iii) clicking on the “opt-out” or “unsubscribe” link in any
electronic communication you receive.

Do Not Track Signals.

Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which you may have your browser send a
“Do Not Track” signal to websites that you are visiting, advising the recipient website that you
do not want to have your online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such
“Do Not Track” signals is not yet uniform and accordingly, the Site does not take any action in
response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may
reassess how we should respond to such signals.

Use of Your Personal Information Within Project M.

In order to provide you with efficient and reliable services and to improve product and service
options available to you, Project M may share your Personal Information with our affiliated
entities, in which case your Personal Information will be collected, used, disclosed, managed and
stored in accordance with this policy as set forth herein. Our affiliates are companies controlled
or owned by us, or companies that control us, or are under common control with us. The Site is
intended for users in the United States and its territories and possessions, but if you use a Site
from any country outside the United States, the various communications will necessarily result in
the transfer of information across international boundaries, and by visiting the Site, you consent
to these transfers as required or permitted by applicable law.

Use of Your Personal Information by Our Service Providers.

From time to time, we may hire third parties to assist us with certain functions and services, such
as data processing, computer software and website maintenance and development, transaction
processing, promotional and marketing services, customer service, professional, legal or
accounting services and/or business and sales analysis. Project M may share your Personal
Information, without restriction (and regardless of whether you have chosen to limit our sharing
of your Personal Information as collected on the Website), with such companies that we hire to
perform services for us. In such situations, Project M requires that these companies agree to
maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information and to comply with the safeguards
described in this Privacy Policy. These companies have access to the Personal Information
needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any
other purposes. Furthermore, in compliance with privacy laws, we also provide our opt-out lists
to non-affiliated third party companies so that communications sent by those companies on
Project M’s behalf do not get sent to addresses appearing on our opt-out lists.

If Project M changes ownership.

We may also share your Personal Information as required to allow for a change in ownership of
Project M and/or any of Project M’s affiliated entities and/or of any business(es) to which the
Site relate, and the related transfer of user information to the new owner. In the event of any
such change of ownership, your Personal Information will continue to be protected by the terms
of this Privacy Policy unless and until you are notified of a change.

Lawful access, legal action and investigations.

Your Personal Information may be disclosed to non-affiliated third parties as either permitted by,
or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations. Your Personal Information may be
transmitted through and stored on servers outside your home country, and may be accessed by
authorities in those jurisdictions. We may disclose Personal Information if we believe it is
necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud,
situations involving the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms and Conditions, or
otherwise in accordance with applicable law. For example, Project M may disclose your
Personal Information to comply with investigations by regulatory authorities or enforcement
agencies in the United States of America or elsewhere, or to protect against or prevent actual or
potential fraud. Furthermore, Project M may disclose your Personal Information if it has a
reasonable good faith basis to believe that it is required to do so by law, compelled by court
order or legal process, or is reasonably necessary and/or appropriate to: (i) protect the rights,
property and/or safety of Project M or any other person or entity; or (ii) prevent or take action
concerning any alleged: (a) illegal activity or (b) breach of the Terms and Conditions or Privacy
Policy of the Website.

Use of Cookies, Google Analytics and ChartBeat

The Site makes use of “cookies” – small data files which we may send to your computer on the
basis of the information that we have collected about your visit. They contain information
allowing us to recognize when you are visiting the Site and to keep track of your preferences.

activity on our Site, such as the web pages you visit, the links you click, and the searches you
conduct on our Site. Cookies are stored in your computer’s browser or on your hard disk and can
then be retrieved by the website. Our Site uses two kinds of cookies: so-called “session”
cookies, which are deleted from your computer when you leave the Site and are used purely to
help you to navigate around the Site; and “persistent” cookies, which remain on your computer

We may also use third-party advertising companies to target and show you advertisements when
you visit the Site. On occasion, Project M permits third-party advertisers and ad networks to
place their own cookies on our Site to track visitors’ activities on the Site. This enables such
companies to recognize visitors so that when those visitors visit a third-party website, advertising
can be delivered that is tailored to their individual interests (whether for Project M products or
for the products or services of others), based on what has been learned from the visitors’ activity
on Project M’s Site. This practice is called “interest-based advertising,” and the practices of
these third-parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy.
If you decide you do not want to receive personalized ads from third-party advertisers and ad
networks please visit, where you can learn more about opting out
from receiving interest-based advertising.
If you want to delete any cookies that were already sent to your computer or personal device,
please refer to your web browser’s “Help” facility. In addition, most web browsers can be set to
prevent you from receiving new cookies, notify you before accepting cookies or disable cookies
altogether. Details about this can normally be found in the “Help” facility provided with your
browser. Please note that if you disable cookies you may not be able to take advantage of some
of the Website’s interactive functionality.
The Website uses ChartBeat and Google Analytics, web analytics tools that help website owners
understand how visitors engage with their website. We can view a variety of reports about how
visitors interact with our Site so we can improve it. ChartBeat and Google Analytics collect
information anonymously, and use cookies, and IP addresses, and they report website trends
without identifying individual visitors. For more information related to ChartBeat, click here: For more information related to Google Analytics, click here: You can opt-out of Google Analytics by
