The Signal takes your privacy seriously. This Privacy Policy describes the kinds of personal information we may gather about you in connection with the Services, how we use that information, to whom we disclose it, and how you can manage it. 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at

1. Introduction and overview

This Privacy Policy describes how Marlborough House ("The Signal," "we," "our," or "us") collects, uses, and shares information about you as well as your rights and choices about such use and sharing, and applies to your use of our website,, and your interaction with all features, content, related emails, and other services we offer (collectively, the "Service"). 

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information-collection activities that take place outside of the Service (unless otherwise stated below or at the time the information is collected).

By using the Service, you consent to our collection, use, and disclosure practices, and other activities as described in this Privacy Policy.

2. Information collection

A. Information you provide

We collect information at certain points when you use the Service, including when you create an account, update your profile, access our content, make a purchase, or contact customer support. We may use Service Providers (defined below) to collect information. The information we collect includes information that identifies you personally (whether alone or in combination). We do not collect any information about you that you do not knowingly provide.

Some examples of information you may provide are:

  • Contact data, including your first and last name, and email address.
  • Demographic data: this is general information that tells us something about you but that doesn't identify you specifically, such as the state you live in or your gender.
  • Billing data, including your credit- or debit-card number, card expiration date, and security code as necessary to process your payments.
  • Content, including information contained within any messages you send to us (such as feedback and questions to customer support) or publicly post on the Service.

B. Information collected automatically

In addition, we automatically collect certain non-personal information when you use the Service. 

Some examples of information we automatically collect are: website-use data, including data about the pages you visit, the emails and advertisements you view, the time of day you browse or review the emails, and your referring and exiting pages; and device-connectivity data, including data about the type of device or browser you use, your device's operating software, your Internet-service provider, your device's regional and language settings, and imprecise location data (such as locations derived from an I.P. address or data that identifies you at a city or Zip Code level).

We use certain technologies to automatically collect this information ("Tracking Technologies"), which may include the following:

  • Log files, which automatically record events that occur in connection with your use of the Service.
  • Cookies, which are small data files stored on your device that act as a unique tag to identify your browser. We use two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate our website and expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies help with personalizing your experience, remembering your preferences, and supporting security features.
  • Pixels (also known as Web beacons), which is code embedded in a website, video, email, or advertisement that sends information about your use to a server. We may incorporate pixels from third parties that allow us to track advertising and other engagement with the Service, bring you advertising, and provide you with additional functionality that you may use, such as the ability to connect our Service with a social-media account.
  • Location-identifying technologies, which are technologies used to collect your location. For example, G.P.S., Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth may be used to gather precise location data when you consent to precise location tracking. Location data may be used for purposes such as verifying your device's location and delivering or restricting relevant content and advertising based on that location. We do not collect this data without your express consent.

you may always opt out of any or all of these Tracking Technologies (although we may not be able to customize content or advertising for you in that case). For further information on Tracking Technologies and your rights and choices regarding them, see the "Third Parties" and "your Rights and Choices" sections below.
