    This is one for Fat Freddy's Cat. It comes up when you enter the site without signing in and select "Consent Options".



    The collection of information about your use of the content, and combination with previously collected information, used to measure, understand, and report on your usage of the service. This does not include personalisation, the collection of information about your use of this service to subsequently personalise content and/or advertising for you in other contexts, i.e. on other service, such as websites or apps, over time."

    And a little further on:

    "Information Storage andAaccess"

      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. lol 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. lol

    Dang. That's some serious Engrish!

    If that were a Hub, I'd flag it for being gibberish.

    Makes absolutely no sense to me either.

    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.
