YOUR INFORMATION CHOICES AND CHANGES

You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from Frut by following the instructions in those emails. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relations. You may also send requests about your contact preferences, changes to your information including requests to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties by emailing hello@usefrut.com.

When you visit Frut Sites, we and others give you the following choices about use of mechanisms for tracking, including tracking of your online activities over time and across different websites and online services by third parties. Many Web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies from Frut servers. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of Frut Sites. You can also choose to opt-out of use of cookies by many of Frut’s third party advertising partners to deliver ads tailored to your profile and preferences by clicking here:

http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. If you delete your cookies, use a different browser, or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your opt-out choices. If you do not want us to track emails we send you, some email services let you change your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images which should effectively disable our email tracking, or you may unsubscribe from our marketing emails as described in those emails. While we and others give you choices described in this Privacy Policy, there are many ways Web browser signals and other similar mechanisms can indicate your choice to disable tracking, and we may not be aware of or honor every mechanism.

Devices and device system software also provide certain opt-out choices that you can control. For example, Apple iOS and Google Play Services provide an opt-out choice that you can use to control in-app advertisements, and mobile device operating systems provide opt-out choices for push notifications or alerts and collection of location information. Please consult your device settings for more information or to opt out using these mechanisms.
