We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with advertisements that we promote on the platforms of our partners. We use this data to analyze the traffic to our websites and the traffic to the websites and apps of our partners.
Any information that we collect when you use our services, in addition to the information that we obtain about you from our partners, may be linked to you.

How We Use Information We Collect
We use any information that we collect to provide, maintain, protect and improve our services - we may also collect such information to:
- Develop new services;
- Protect Cobit and our users; and
- Offer you tailored content.
We may use the information that you provide Cobit across all the services that we offer. For example, when you contact Cobit, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We also use information from cookies and other technologies such as pixel tags , to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we will be able to have our services appear in the language that you prefer. When we show you tailored content, we do not associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with sensitive categories such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or health.
We may join personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other Cobit services - for example, to make it easier to share things with people you know. Your activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information to improve Cobit-s services.
Cobit processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server, outside the country where you live.
Transparency and Choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect. We hope to help you make meaningful choices about how your information is used. For example, you may set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to show you when we set a cookie.
However, it is important to remember that many of our services may not work if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information You Share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexed by search engines.
Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information
We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. If we can offer information access and correction, then we will do so for free, except if doing would require a disproportionate effort.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, develop a new system or fundamentally change an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests about information on backup systems).
Information We Share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations, and individuals outside Cobit unless one of the following circumstances applies:
- With Your Consent
We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside Cobit when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information .
- For External Processing
- For Legal Reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside Cobit if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is necessary to:
- Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
- Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.
- Protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of Cobit, our users or the public as required or allowed by law.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners, including publishers, advertisers, or other connected sites.
We work hard to protect Cobit and our users from unauthorized access, change, disclosure, or destruction of information that we hold. For example:
- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
- We review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to Cobit employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
