22.214.171.124. Please note that an advertiser may ask Stage Access to show an ad to a certain audience of users (e.g., based on demographics or other interests). In that situation, Stage Access will determine the target audience and deliver the advertising to that audience; only anonymous aggregated data is provided to the advertiser. If you respond to such an ad, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach and deem your response as permission to use your personal information.

When you view an advertisement - whether or not you click on it - or when you interact with an advertisement, the advertiser, advertising technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising-related services for Stage Access and our business partners may collect some information from or about you.

Also, most functionality of a mobile app, such as app-related tracking technologies not used in connection with an internet browser, can only be disabled by uninstalling the app. Disabling tracking tools on your mobile device prevents Stage Access and its business partners from tracking your browser’s activities for use in targeting advertising. Please note, however, that doing so may disable features available through the Stage Access service.

Through the settings on most mobile devices you can select "Limit Ad Tracking" (for iOS devices) or "Opt out of Interest-Based Ads" (for Android devices) which will allow you to limit the use of information collected from or about your mobile device for the purpose of presenting you with online behavioral advertising.
5.3.2. Location Data Collection Choices. You may be able to opt out of the collection of precise location data from your mobile device by Stage Access by disabling “Location Services” for the Stage Access app in your device’s settings.

5.4. Opting Out of Web Beacons
Most commercial email clients include a mechanism for preventing web beacons from downloading automatically when an email is opened. Please refer to your email clients’ technical information for instructions on how to disable web beacons.

The Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") is an independent non-for-profit organization led by marketing and advertising industry trade associations.

If you are under 18, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that Stage Access learns that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 18 without any verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.

Stage Access will then make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it so the minor cannot be individually identified to the extent required by applicable law. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third parties may have republished the content, or the content may have been archived by search engines and other means that Stage Access does not control.
9.3. Stage Access does not knowingly collect or solicit any personal information as defined in the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) in a manner that is not permitted by COPPA, and for any children’s or mixed-use portions of the service (if any) Stage Access will comply with COPPA.
