Interest-Based Ads

The Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies We Use.

We adhere to the DAA Self-Regulatory Principles. Our website uses “cookie”, “web beacon” and “tag” technology. We use cookies, web beacons and tags to identify your device, provide website user authentication, conduct fraud prevention and management services, distinguish you from other visitors, record your IP address and understand your use of our site, and identify the URL of the website from which you were directed to this site. This information is used to help us serve you better by improving our website design, as well as our products, services, and promotions. We do not track any information about your use of other websites. Information obtained through cookies, web beacons and tags may be shared with (or provided to us by) service providers for the purpose of providing better service.

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A “session cookie” expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. Web beacons and tags are small strings of code that are used in conjunction with a cookie and that allow us to record activity on our websites. When you visit our website, we may use both a session and a persistent cookie. This cookie may contain information (such as a unique user ID) that is used to track your usage of our website. A web beacon allows us to capture certain additional types of information about a visitor’s actions on a web site, such as a visitor’s cookie number, the time, date, duration and number of page views, a description of the page where the web beacon is placed, and details about any items that were purchased.

Which Internet Advertising Programs We Engage.

We use third-party service providers to serve advertisements (banners or links) on our behalf across the Internet. These advertising service providers may collect non-identifiable information about your visits to our website, and your interactions with our products and services. Such non-identifiable information does not include your name, address, email address or other personal information. The information is collected through the use of cookies and pixel tags (also known as action tags), which is industry-standard technology used by most major websites. In addition to the information about your visits to our website, our service providers may also use the information about your visits to other websites to target advertisements for this website.

Currently, we use third party-placed tracking pixels and cookies from Google. We may convert your email address into a unique value which can be matched by Google with a user on their platform to allow us to serve you interest-based advertising. Although we do not provide any personal information to these platform vendors, they may gain insights about individuals who respond to the ads we serve.

In the future we may partner with other companies to provide interest-based advertising, both on and off this website. If this occurs, we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out when these advertisements are served. You may manage your advertising preferences by Visiting Google’s Ad Settings. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices for not having this information used by third-party service providers, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
