I used to have to read legal documents in a previous job. That quote was not written by a native English speaker. A lot of routine stuff like disclaimers is being farmed out to other countries. Since it's been a while since I had to read legal documents, I wouldn't be surprised if this stuff is now being "written" by AI which can come up with some really garbled language.
It is an interesting thought but I reckon "personalise" rather "personalize" tells you it was a task that was outsourced.
I wrote and edited legal language for 30 years, and to me it says Measurement: A collection of new information combined with old information of how you use the service. The next sentence makes no sense: PersonaliSation, (I assume the next part is an appositive) the collection of how you personalize [your] content and/or your advertising on other contexts like websites over time. HUH?
I purposely capped the "S" in "personalisation" to show that it was not U.S. English. U.K., Australia and Europe use an s" in a lot of words that U.S. English spell with a "z". So it is probably either AI or written in Hong Kong by a Chinese writer.
Dang. That's some serious Engrish!
If that were a Hub, I'd flag it for being gibberish.
Maven's 'public' language has always struck me as being obtuse. They have embraced corporate-speak with enthusiasm. As a company based on communication, they really should try to be the opposite.
In-speak is all about impressing (and intimidating) outsiders and reassuring insiders that they invested their money wisely, lol.
