The information we have access to from the social media platforms varies by platform and is controlled by your privacy settings on that platform and by your consent. Information may be passed to analytics providers via cookies and tracking technologies. By associating an account managed by a third party with your Nobias account and authorizing us to have access to this information, you agree that we may collect, use, and store information from these platforms in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Tracking Technologies

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service.
