This Privacy Notice governs the manner in which Intuience, LLC, DBA CultureWaves® (collectively “CultureWaves”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) collects, uses, maintains, and discloses your personal information collected or provided through our Sparcwire® technology (“Sparcwire”).

Whenever you interact with Sparcwire, we automatically receive and record information from your browser, which may include: the device you use to access or use Sparcwire, your IP address, the type of browser or application you are using to access Sparcwire, and the identity of the website page or feature you are requesting.
We may also use “web beacons” (i.e. “web bugs” or “single–pixel” or “clear” GIFs) on Sparcwire. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website.
