In the course of enabling you to effectively use our business search services, providing you with business information responsive to your queries, facilitating connections between you and businesses with which you engage on This Website, and showing you advertisements and marketing that match your interests and preferences, we may use the information we collect from you or about you to respond to your inquiries, administer your account, send you marketing messages, assess your needs and interests in order to better tailor offers and/or display content based upon your interests, allow you to search for information on our site, improve our website and search services, conduct research, and/or list you in our search and directory services. We do this on behalf of ourselves and our client businesses for whom we provide marketing and lead generation services. We also use collected information for the following purposes:
Specific Purpose. When users supply personally identifiable information about themselves for a specific purpose (for example, to register to use a feature on This Website, to inquire about a product or service or business listed or advertised on This Website, to receive information, or to apply for a job), we may use, store, and/or share such information for such purpose, as well as to analyze and improve services provided by Mexify.
Communicating with You. We may also use, store and/or share personally identifiable information you provide or that is automatically collected to communicate with you (e.g., to send you e-mails, text messages or push notifications) and to respond to your requests for information. However, you may request not to receive (i.e., “unsubscribe” from receiving) commercial e-mail messages (the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service) from us (either altogether or on a category-by-category basis). If you have opted-in to receive marketing text messages from us, you may also opt-out of receiving such messages going forward, and push notifications can be disabled in your mobile application, device, or browser settings. Email unsubscribe and marketing text message opt-out are described in the section titled, “Can I review and request changes to personally identifiable information that I provide through registration forms on This Website?”. Your personally identifiable information may also be used, stored and/or shared by non- Mexify companies with which we have agreements, to provide you information about their products and services.
Protecting Mexify’s Property or Other Rights. In addition, Mexify may use, store and/or share personally identifiable information you provide and information Mexify automatically collects through This Website (and may combine personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information you provide with information Mexify automatically collects through This Website) as it deems appropriate to protect its property or other rights (for example, to enforce any policies regarding user-provided content, to comply with laws regarding alleged copyright violations, and to prevent fraud).
Improving This Website and Mexify Services. We use, store and/or share information Mexify automatically collects through This Website to improve This Website, to monitor its performance, to make This Website easier for you and other users to use, to manage features and programs made available through This Website, and to assess the use of and improve the services Mexify provides or may want to provide.
Targeted Advertising. On certain sites and apps, Mexify may allow the collection and tracking of behavioral data or visits to This Website by non-Mexify companies (e.g., website operators or advertising networks) for the purpose of showing you targeted advertising for Mexify or our client businesses on third-party websites. For example, Mexify may use information Mexify automatically collects in the ways described in the section entitled “Tracking Methods” below.
Does Mexify combine Personally Identifiable Information provided through This Website by users of This Website with offline information about such users?
Mexify reserves the right to combine personally identifiable information you provide through This Website with offline information about you. For instance, if you call a phone number in a business listing or ad on This Website, Mexify may supplement the phone company’s Caller-ID information with other information about you when reporting the details of the contact to Mexify’s client businesses.
Can I review and request changes to personally identifiable information that I provide through registration forms on This Website?

You may request not to receive (i.e., “unsubscribe” from receiving) commercial e-mail messages from us (altogether or on a category-by-category basis), by clicking on Update Your Email Preferences or the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of a commercial email from us, and following the directions provided on the e-mail unsubscribe page. Please note that we reserve the right to send certain types of administrative or informational e-mail messages, based on your ongoing relationship with us, that are not subject to the unsubscribe option (see information about e-mails, below), including to those who have unsubscribed from receiving commercial e-mail messages.
Does Mexify sell or provide my information collected through This Website to non-Mexify companies or other third parties?
Except as otherwise disclosed in this policy, we do not sell or provide Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us or that we automatically collect through This Website to any non-Mexify company or other third party unless (i) you specifically authorize it, (ii) it is to complete a transaction, service or activity that you initiated or requested, (iii) it is necessary to obtain, provide or enhance a service provided on behalf of Mexify, in which case such non-Mexify entities are not permitted to use such information for any purpose other than to provide such contracted service for our or your benefit, (iv) it is required by law or we believe that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law, (v) we reasonably believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served, (vi) we reasonably believe that disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of clients, employees or other persons, or to prevent serious damage to property, or (vii) Mexify transfers all or substantially all of its assets to another entity (in which case Mexify may disclose, sell and/or otherwise provide Personally Identifiable Information in its records to such entity).
As indicated above, Mexify may share information it automatically collects through This Website with non-Mexify companies in order to help us analyze automatically collected information in the aggregate to evaluate the effectiveness of This Website, to assess the results of a promotion, event or third-party relationship, to provide information to current or prospective customers, to complete a transaction, service, search or other activity that the user initiated or requested, to facilitate targeted advertising on third-party websites, or to otherwise enhance your online experience or expand services offered by Mexify.
Mexify may also display third-party advertising on This Website. If you click on or provide personally identifiable information in any part of a third-party display ad, you will also be providing the Personally Identifiable Information to the advertiser and the advertiser and/or Mexify may be automatically collecting information when you interact with such advertisement. Mexify is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by the advertiser.
What is Mexify’s position regarding online advertising and third-party ad servers?
Mexify may place its own advertisements and/or accept advertisements from third parties that serve advertising on This Website. Mexify may use its own Tracking Methods or Tracking Methods provided by such third parties in the pages containing the ad(s) that Mexify sends to your browser. These Tracking Methods allow Mexify and/or the third parties to automatically collect information (e.g., usage pattern information) about your visit to This Website, and specifically your interaction with this advertising.
Mexify may use information derived from its Tracking Methods or supplied from non-Mexify companies in several ways, such as to:
- Target advertising based on geography, site content or search terms
- Deliver reporting to advertisers regarding performance of advertising
- Gauge the effectiveness of online advertising
- Optimize and allocate advertising spend when developing online media plan
Mexify may use various Tracking Methods on This Website. For instance, Mexify and its marketing partners and analytics providers may use technologies such as cookies, pixels, beacons, scripts and tags for the purpose of analyzing trends, administering the website, tracking users’ navigation around the site, and gathering behavioral or demographic information about our user base as a whole. Reporting based on the use of these technologies may be provided on an individual and/or aggregated basis. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing these types of tracking technologies.
“Unique Identifiers” are unique strings of characters that are used to identify you, your computer, or your mobile device. Such identifiers may be preset on your computer or mobile device. We may use access and use unique identifiers to recognize you when you visit This Website or use our mobile applications.
“Web beacons” or “clear pixels” are small graphic images on a web page or in an e-mail that can be used for such things as recording the pages and advertisements clicked on by users, or tracking the performance of e-mail marketing campaigns.
A “web server log” is a record of activity created by the computer that delivers the web pages you request to your browser. For example, a web server log may record the search term you entered or the link you clicked to bring you the webpage. The Web server log also may record information about your browser, such as your IP address and the cookies set on your browser by the server.
A “widget” is a program or application that can be embedded in a web page or mobile application. Widgets can provide real-time information, such as stock quotes or weather reports, or take information, such as restaurant reservations or online food orders. Widgets are often provided and hosted by a third party, and may allow that third party to collect data about users viewing that page or interacting with that widget, possibly subject to privacy policies other than Mexify’s.
As mentioned above, you can log-in to certain of Mexify’s websites or apps using “sign-in services” such as Facebook, Google or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain Personally Identifiable Information with us, such as your name and email address to pre-populate our signup form, or to post information to your account.
“Geo-location technologies” refers to technologies that permit us to determine your location, usually on a mobile device, in order to provide you with relevant services in your area, such as enable you to search for “near me” business locations. You must give permission for your mobile device to provide us with precise location information for this purpose. We may also automatically collect information from your computer, such as IP address, from which we may derive a default location for desktop searches, which may or may not correspond to your actual physical location. You may always manually enter a geography for conducting a search into any search bar on This Website.
Use of analytics software such as Google Analytics allows us to measure and understand site metrics, such as website traffic (number of site visitors) and its sources and conversions from advertising on third-party sites. We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile applications on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and from where the mobile application was downloaded.
We use Local Storage, such as HTML5, to store site content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on This Website or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity also use HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5.
This Website is intended for and directed to a general adult audience, and Mexify does not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from anyone under the age of 13 through This Website.
We cannot always determine the age of persons who access and use This Website. If a child visits This Website or provides us with the child’s information, we encourage the parent or guardian of the child to Contact Us to have such information deleted. This Website, and any site to which users may link from This Website, may contain and immediately display content provided by advertisers or other third parties that may not be suitable for children. Mexify asks parents or legal guardians to assist Mexify by supervising any activities of their children on This Website.
How long we retain your data

Mexify is committed to securing and protecting from unauthorized access your Personally Identifiable Information that you provide through This Website. Mexify encrypts any sensitive personal information we may intentionally collect, such as credit card or social security numbers, during transmission and storage. For other types of information, we use reasonable measures to help prevent the information from becoming disclosed to those who are not described in this policy.
