CoachOut will only send you marketing emails or contact you on CoachOut platforms where you have agreed to this.
We offer regular emails, including a monthly update, to let you know about CoachOut offers and services. From time to time we may also contact you to ask your views on issues affecting CoachOut.
We may personalise the message content based upon any information you have provided to us and your use of the CoachOut platform.
We may use information which we hold about you to show you relevant advertising on third party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Snapchat, Mail Chimp and Twitter). This could involve showing you an advertising message where we know you have a CoachOut account and have used CoachOut products and services. If you don’t want to be shown targeted advertising messages from CoachOut, some third party sites allow you to request not to see messages from specific advertisers on that site in future. If you want to stop all personalised services from CoachOut, including targeted advertising messages, you can request this by emailing email@example.com
8. WILL COACHOUT SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH ANYONE ELSE?
We will keep your information within CoachOut except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies, including for child protection reasons) or as described in this section and section 9.
Generally, we will use your information within CoachOut and will only share it outside where you have permitted or given your consent to (e.g. with our partners). We may share information with third party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Mail Chimp, Snapchat and Twitter) some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third party sites, as set out in section 7.
Sometimes CoachOut will use these third parties to process your information on our behalf, for example to provide services or analysis. CoachOut requires these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
Our Services may also offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook "Like" button), which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature.
9. OFFENSIVE OR INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT ON LSG WEBSITES
If you post or send content which may reasonably be deemed to be offensive, inappropriate or objectionable anywhere on or to CoachOut websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any CoachOut service, we may remove such content.
Where CoachOut reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws, for example on hate speech, CoachOut may disclose your personal information to relevant third parties, including to law enforcement agencies or your internet provider. CoachOut would only do so in circumstances where such disclosure is permitted under applicable laws, including data protection law.

16. HOW TO AVOID TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
How to avoid web beacons and other tracking technologies
You can normally render them ineffective by switching off cookies in your browser. There are also browser add-ons and extensions that specifically block web beacons.
To avoid web beacons in emails, you can turn off images in your email service. Check your email’s Help section to find out how.
DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies.
When you use CoachOut’s website on your mobile device, information may be accessed from or stored to your device. Most often this is used in a similar way to a web browser cookie, such as by enabling the app to ‘remember’ you or provide you with the content you have requested.
Your web browser or device may also provide CoachOut with information about your device, such as a device identifier or IP address. Device identifiers may be collected automatically, such as the device ID, IP address, MAC address, IMEI number and app ID (a unique identifier relating to the particular copy of the app you are running).
When you sign in to a CoachOut app, your sign-in details may be stored securely on the device you are using, so you can access other CoachOut apps on the same device without needing to enter your sign-in details again.
If you have any concerns about the information which might be accessed from or stored on your device by CoachOut, you may wish to only access CoachOut content through a web browser and review your web browser settings.
