First, how do we get information?
- We do not collect any information about you when you submit a tip through Axios's tip-line.
- When you register for newsletters (your email address and topics you're interested in).
- When you complete a survey or enter a contest.
- When you use our mobile app, we may collect your location information if you have set your device settings to share location with our mobile app.
- We also get information from data providers. If you register with Axios, we may ask a data provider to tell us more about you. For example, if you also registered on another news site and allowed that site to share your information with data providers and others, the data provider will share those details with us. We also get aggregated data, like our users' income bracket. Data providers also may give us names and email addresses of new consumers who may be interested in hearing about Axios, and we reach out to those consumers to tell them about our services.
So here are some of the key things Axios does with your data:
- First and foremost, we use your information to get Axios services to you, including to send you newsletters and respond to your inquiries.
- We may remove your name and email address from your information and combine it with other users' information to make information for statistics. Which articles are users visiting most? How do they get to those articles? Do users that come directly to our homepage return the next day?
- We customize the content and advertising you see.
- We help advertisers understand who views their ads on Axios. How many users viewed the ads? What were those users' estimated income ranges (we get these estimates from a vendor)? Did users' engagement with the ads vary based on where the ad was placed on the website, mobile app or in a newsletter?
- We partner with third-party platforms, including social media platforms to market new Axios products to you. For example, we might ask Facebook to monitor our website to identify Facebook users who also read Axios. We could then ask Facebook to advertise a new economics newsletter to Facebook users who read an economics article on Axios in the last week. When we do this, Facebook does not share your personal information with us. If you use a third-party platform login (like Amazon) to access Axios, we may share your information with the platform according to your platform settings.
- We may also use or share your information when you specifically allow us to do so. For example, we may ask you whether we can share some of your information with other Axios users — such as sports-related preferences like favorite team — in a user spotlight or user answer section included in a newsletter or email to other Axios users. These surveys are voluntary and only for users who specifically choose to participate.
What we don't do:
- Track your activity on sites that are not owned by Axios.
- Sell personally identifiable information to any third parties.
- Store a long history of your data such as your last 3 jobs or places of residence.
Remember, you have choices.
- You can always opt out of any newsletter or promotional email by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email. We might still send you some important emails, like responding to you by email if you send us a request or comment.
- You can change your mobile device settings to stop sharing location information with our mobile app.
- If you don't want your browser to accept any cookies, you can change your browser settings, BUT the Axios services may not function properly. FYI, Axios does not respond to any Do Not Track signals that your browser may send.
