What information is shared with news providers

According to your privacy policy "Information We Collect", you take the liberty to share users data with content providers.
What exactly are you shariong with the providers of the news feeds?
I am especially interested to know if you
a.) share my IP
b.) allow them direct access to my session, eg do you them to place and /or read their and/or 3rd party tracking cookies on my device
c.) do you share any other data specific to me, even if "anonymous", like geography, account type, usage frequency, etc, which allows the provider to tailor the ads
Thanks so much in advance

    The only data we share with news providers is in the form of aggregate usage reports that are anonymized to Plex, with nothing tied to a user in any way.
