We have implemented the following data collection features in Google Analytics:
1. Remarketing with Google AdSense
Enables data collection for Display and Search Remarketing. This includes data from Google’s signed-in users who have chosen to enable Google to associate their web and app browsing history with their Google account, and to use such information from their Google account to personalize ads. Google Analytics temporarily joins these identifiers to your Google Analytics data in order to support your audiences. When you enable this setting, you must adhere to the Google Analytics Advertising Features Policy, including rules around sensitive categories and the necessary privacy disclosures to your end users about the data you collect and share with Google.

If you choose to comment on our site, you will be asked to provide a name and email address. The data which you provide and your comment will be stored on our server along with your public IP address.
When subscribing to our email newsletter, you may be asked to enter your name and/or email address or other details to help you with your experience.
As a newsletter subscriber, we keep a record of your IP address, the emails you open, and the links you click within those emails, so that we can more accurately recommend content, occasional third party offers and products that you might find valuable.
Any personal information you provide to us, including and similar to your name and e-mail address will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of GrabFly.com. However, if you participate in a competition, your email address might be provided to the relevant vendor for registration/activation and ongoing support purposes.

Advertising in emails
We, or a data provider we have engaged, may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser to enable you to receive customized ads, content or services.
Additionally, emails we send may contain a bit of code known as a “web beacon.” This code allows us to understand the time and date of when a user has opened an email and when he/she has utilized a link within the email to visit a website. Our web beacons do not collect personally identifiable information. Users wishing to disable our web beacons should do so by turning images “off” in their email client (e.g., Outlook, Outlook Express). Please see your email client for more information.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when it’s release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website or in our newsletter. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur we will notify you via email within 7 business days.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following:
- Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
- Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
- Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
- Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
- Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
- Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
We love researching and reviewing stuff, then sharing our findings with you. And you can help us keep the lights on.
You may have noticed that we use Amazon and similar ecommerce website links when recommending products. So if you do decide to use our links to purchase a product we’re recommending, then we get paid a small commission, and in turn, you’ll shop with confidence knowing that you are getting a best deal.
You’ll also be glad to know that our recommendations are always based on the merits of the items. As you can tell from our product review conclusions, we always provide advice on whether a product is worth purchasing. We would never recommend anything we wouldn’t buy ourselves.
Rest assured, these affiliate links do not affect you in any way. They will, however, share a small portion of the sale with us. These links are always added after the article or review is written. That goes against our principles.
Some of our Best Of lists also contain affiliate links. These pages are created with our readers in mind, and therefore, we only recommend the best apps and services. Affiliate links are inserted only as an afterthought, which again, pays us a very small compensation if you do decide to buy or sign up for a service. These links also appear in individual review articles.
And now, some legal stuff:
Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links on GrabFly.com are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, we will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, we only recommend products or services we believe will add value to our readers. We are disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
A quick word regarding sponsored articles, manuals and giveaways
Whenever a company contracts us to write about their product in the form of a review, manual or giveaway, in exchange for compensation, we will always disclose that fact in the published work. We only choose to partner with high-quality clients in order to preserve our reputation. At the same time, we try to be as honest as possible, ensuring that our readers receive the most truthful information about the apps and services we review. Therefore, you have nothing to worry about — sponsored articles, manuals and giveaways are written by the same people who publish regular, non-sponsored articles, and contains the same advice we’d normally dish out. We do not discriminate.
