Privacy & Protection
This Privacy Statement presents our privacy policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information on www.xplusone.net (the “Website”) and the services, features, content or applications we offer (collectively with the Website, the “Services”). We receive information about you from various sources, including through your use of the Services generally and from third party websites and services. Below is information regarding [x+1]’s commitment to protecting the privacy of Internet users.
[x+1] is a member of the NAI (www.networkadvertising.org) and is in compliance with the NAI’s Self-Regulatory Principles (the “Principles”) which have been applauded by the FTC. We believe that these Principles will protect and ensure individual consumer privacy and have adopted the Principles guidelines and regulations. You may control your privacy settings more widely by using the NAI Opt-out Tool which allows consumers to opt out of the behavioral advertising delivered by NAI member companies.
[x+1] Data Collection on Behalf of Our Clients
In the course of delivering an ad to you, [x+1] does not collect personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) about you. In other words, in the course of delivering an ad to you, we do not collect information such as your name, address, phone number, or email address. However, [x+1] does collect certain non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”) about you in the course of delivering an ad to you, such as your browser type (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox), the server your computer is logged into, the type of computer operating system you use (Macintosh or Windows, for instance), Non-Personal Information from around the web and whether you responded to the ad delivered. The Non-Personal Information that we collect is used for the purpose of targeting ads and measuring the effectiveness of ads on behalf of [x+1]’s advertisers and Web publishers. This Non-Personal Information includes without limitation:
.com, .net, or .edu, for instance.
This is the data found in every communication sent over the Internet. Using this standard information, [x+1] can infer the following information: browser type (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox); operating system (e.g., Macintosh or Windows); browser language (e.g., Java or Unix); or Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast or TimeWarner).
[x+1] can infer how you use third party sites and pages on the Internet.
[x+1] works with responsible third party data providers to enhance audience profiles of websites.
What are cookies and how do they enhance your Web experience?
A [x+1] cookie is a unique number that is assigned to you the first time [x+1] serves you an ad. This number is stored in a file on your computer and helps us deliver the optimal ad to you. For instance, cookies help [x+1] ensure that you don’t repeatedly see the same ad. Cookies can also help advertisers measure how you utilize an advertiser’s site and the effectiveness of an ad. This information can then be used by advertisers to better cater to your needs. In other words, cookies help us deliver to you the types of ads in which you are more interested.
Although we believe that cookies help enhance your experience on the Web (by not repeatedly serving the same ads to you and by delivering more relevant messages to you), [x+1] does not need cookies to deliver ads to you. If you decline a [x+1] cookie, you will still be able to view ads; however, you may see the same ad repeatedly or be delivered ads that have no relevance to you.
How long is data stored?
We set our cookies to expire after 18 months and the expiration date updates every time you encounter our server. We also maintain server-side interest-based advertising (“IBA”) data for rolling 3 month period.

If you do not want targeted advertising by [x+1], there is a simple procedure that allows you to deny this feature. To opt out of IBA ads being served to you, you may click here.

Please note, should you use a different computer or change browsers, the opt-out procedure would have to be repeated.

We do not sell, rent, share, or otherwise dispose of your Personal Information collected on the Website to third parties. However, in certain cases we may choose to buy or sell assets, and user information is typically one of those transferred business assets. If we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
