Any information (including personal information) you share in any review, or other forum is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any personal information in any public forum.

Services and Device Information
When you access and use the Services, Black Health TV automatically collects and stores in its server logs information from your browser or mobile device such as your IP address or unique device identifier, browser information (including referring URL), your preferences and settings, cookies and information about the content you have viewed and actions taken (e.g., search queries, ad engagement, clicks and the associated dates and times). Black Health TV may also collect device-specific information when you install and use an App including your device model, operating system information, advertising ID (which is a unique, user-resettable identification number for advertising associated with a mobile device) and App version and usage information. When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device, which you may disable through the device settings.
Precise Geolocation Data
When enabled by you, we collect precise location information provided by your mobile device. We do so to provide you more relevant content including advertising based on your location. You may disable the collection and use of your location data through your device settings. To change location settings on your device, please refer to your device’s official knowledge base.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We also work with third party ad networks to display advertising on our Black Health TV Sites and on third party websites. Our ad network vendors use technologies to collect information about your activities on the Black Health TV Sites and in our flagship Black Health TV App to provide you cookie-based targeted advertising on our Black Health TV Sites and on third party websites based upon your browsing activity and your interests.
We and our service providers collect and store information about users’ interactions with unaffiliated websites and applications that use our technologies, including cookies and similar tracking technologies. This allows us to infer the presence of a common user or household behind multiple devices. We do so in order to:
- provide personalized advertising on each device that is inferred from the browsing patterns on all of the devices;
- detect and prevent fraud;
- allow users to use our service on one device and pick up seamlessly where they left off on another device;
- limit the number of times a user is shown the same advertisement, across known or inferred devices
