How is data used for digital advertising & analytics?

We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the App and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.

To opt out of Getir’s collection, use, and transfer of data for interest-based advertising on the App, you may download the DAA’s AppChoices application from the Android or iOS app store on your mobile device. You also can use “Limit Ad Tracking” in your iOS settings or “Opt out of interest-based ads” in your Android settings to limit Getir’s collection of data for interest-based advertising. Note that electing to opt out from interest-based advertising will not stop advertising from appearing in your applications. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or device, or reset your mobile advertising identifier, you may need to renew your opt-out choice. 

We may also work with third parties that collect data about your use of the App and other sites or apps over time for non-advertising purposes. Getir uses Google Analytics and other third-party services to improve the performance of the App and for analytics and marketing purposes. For more information about how Google Analytics collects and uses data when you use the App, visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and to opt out of Google Analytics, visit tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

How does Getir keep data secure?

We use appropriate security measures designed to protect the data that we collect and process about you.

The App may provide links to third-party websites or apps. We do not control the privacy practices of those websites or apps, and they are not covered by this Privacy Policy. You should review the privacy policies of other websites or apps that you use to learn about their data practices.

The App also includes integrated social media tools or “plug-ins,” such as by allowing you to log in through social media features offered by third parties. If you use these tools to share data or you otherwise interact with these features on the App, those companies may collect data about you and may use and share such information in accordance with your account settings, including by sharing such data with the general public. 

Your interactions with third-party companies and your use of their features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide those features. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policies of any accounts you create and use.
