This might also entail granting you access to the parts of a website that directly use the YouTube APIs or interact with them. This enables us to gather additional data required to submit material, such as the video’s origin (for instance, from an existing article, original content, or playlist), as well as analytical statistics like view counts and duration.

CHANGES IN OWNERSHIP
We may provide advertisers, sponsors, and other organisations with compiled, non-personally identifying information on demographics and website usage. When you are online for commercial purposes, this may involve, for instance, recording your cookie ID, IP address, and engagement metrics. These data are then pooled to produce a profile of a firm, not an individual.
AD SERVING PLUS MEASUREMENT AND REPORTING SERVICES
The adverts on this website may occasionally be served by a network advertiser from a third party. Network advertisers are independent companies that serve you with ads based on your visits to this and other websites.

In addition, if a third party is assisting us in choosing and delivering intriguing and pertinent advertising to you and/or other potential customers, we may share de-identified information and/or aggregated information with them. For us to serve relevant advertising to you based on what you seem to be interested in, this includes sharing data with advertising networks and search engines. For example when you are searching for information or browsing other sites.
- BEHAVIOURAL REMARKETING SERVICES
We may use remarketing services offered by businesses like Facebook, Google, and Bing to show you advertising on third-party websites based on your browsing patterns and interactions after you have visited our site. For this purpose, visitors are grouped by certain actions on our services, for example, by duration of visit. This enables us to understand your preferences and to show you personalised advertising even if you are currently on another website within our network.
We may also share de-identified information with social media platforms. For example, we may share a hashed, non-identifiable version of your email with, for example, Facebook or Google, with the aim of showing you advertising on those platforms. Alternatively, we may use this data with the aim of excluding you from seeing our advertising on those platforms. We only share data in this way if you have agreed to receive marketing communications from us. Our ability to subsequently tailor (or exclude) ads in this way are determined by your account settings on those platforms.
Some of our sites enable our users, and contributors, to share information with sites such as YouTube. On these occasions, our websites interact directly with YouTube (via its APIs), and make use of YouTube API services, for example interacting periodically with the YouTube APIs in order to keep any analytical data previously gathered up to date and complete.

In addition to our normal procedure for deleting stored data, users can revoke access to their data as it relates to the YouTube API by visiting the Google security settings page at https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions.
When we share information with third parties, we only permit them to process this data for specified purposes. We do not share more information with them than is necessary for the relevant purpose and we require them to treat this information with at least the same protection we do.
Do We Disclose any Information to Outside Parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to third parties. This does not apply to trusted third parties who help us operate our website, conduct our business, or provide services to you, as long as those parties agree to keep your information private.
