Welcome to the website for Million Stories Media.
The Information We Collect
In the course of using the Services, we ask you to provide us with certain information that could reasonably be used to contact you or identify you personally (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name and email address.
Some features on the Services may ask users to provide certain information that is not personally identifiable, such as city or state of residence. Such demographic information is referred to collectively, along with Usage Information (defined below), as “Non-Personal Information.” We may use Non-Personal Information for a variety of purposes, including enhancing or otherwise improving the Services. Non-Personal Information is generally non-identifying, but, if we associate it with you as an identifiable individual, we will treat it as Personal Information.
When visitors use our Services, we and our third-party service providers also may automatically collect some non-personally identifiable information such as your IP address (which may tell us your general location) or other unique identifier that is associated with your computer, mobile phone or other device (any, a “Device”) you use to access the Services, the type of computer operating system you are using (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox), your activity while using our Services (e.g., which of our pages you have viewed, the amount of time spent on a given page) (“Usage Information”).
Collection Methods/Tracking Technologies
We, our third-party service providers and/or partners may also use Tracking Technologies, such as cookies, to manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed on or delivered by or through the Services. Moreover, we, our third-party service providers and/or our partners may use Tracking Technologies to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page.
In addition to the Tracking Technologies, log data collected on our web servers supply us with aggregate Usage Information about the number of visits to our Services. We use such aggregate Usage Information to improve access to content based on our visitors’ browsers and operating system types to make our content available to as many users as possible.
Please be aware, however, that blocking cookies and other Tracking Technologies will affect your online experience and may prevent you from enjoying the full features offered through our Services. Please know that certain areas and features of our Services can only be accessed in conjunction with cookies, Flash cookies, or other similar devices and you should be aware that disabling cookies or similar devices may prevent you from accessing some of our content.
Note that your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. If you enable “Do Not Track” functionality on your browser, Google Analytics will not track your usage of our website. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Third Parties. We will not share or sell Personal Information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your express consent.
Aggregate Information and Non-Personal Information. We may share aggregated information that includes Non-Personal Information and log data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information. While we may use a variety of service providers to perform advertising and analytics services, some of these companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You may want to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an “opt-out” by participating companies in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program. Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads while online.
Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate the Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform services related to administration of the Services (including, without limitation, maintenance, hosting and database management services, web analytics and administration). These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. Singleton cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Singleton or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical, inappropriate or legally actionable.
Business Transfers. Singleton may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.

The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit Personal Information from you. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the Personal Information you submit to them.
