Cookies and third party analytics

This Site uses Google Analytics, which collects the following information:

The information that is collected by Google Analytics is presented to NerdWallet in anonymous, aggregate form, for the purposes of allowing us to evaluate use of the Site and improve the Site and the user experience. We cannot identify any individual from the data provided to us by Google Analytics. We handle any personal information collected from Google Analytics in the same way that we handle all other personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of third parties such as Google. However, you should be aware that information collected by Google Analytics: (1) may be shared with other Google services and Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network; and (2) may be transferred, stored or otherwise processed outside Australia, in any country where Google operates, and such information may be accessible to courts, law enforcement and national authorities in such other countries.

We hold your personal information in electronic form and may store your personal information with third-party service providers that are obligated to keep your data confidential. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss, as well as unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We use a number of physical, managerial, and technical safeguards that are designed to protect the integrity and security of your information.

We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to your information, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users or other third parties with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that information you post through the Services and on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services. Even after removal, copies of information that you have posted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored such information.
