6. Cookies & Other Tracking Technology.
A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that may be sent to your web browser when you visit a website. Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (1) to enable certain functions; (2) to provide analytics; (3) to store your preferences; and (4) to enable ad delivery and behavioral advertising.
Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire at a later time. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third party cookies.”
B. Third-Party Service Providers and Additional Technology
We sometimes utilize third-party service providers to help us track the activity within the Website.
• Remarketing with Google Analytics
• Google Display Network Impression Reporting
• DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
Third-party vendors, including Google, show our ads across the internet. We use ad-tracking along with third-party vendors. These use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie). Together, these cookies report if you have seen our ads (ad impressions) and how you have interacted with our ads and ad services. We want this information so we can make sure our advertising that you see is relevant to you.
We may also use additional technologies to help track user activities and preferences. The following Information may automatically be received and/or collected from you through the Site: IP address, browser type, browser language, internet service provider (ISP), resource requested, date and time of resource request, and HTTP referring resource (if provided by the browser), operating system, and/or clickstream data. We aggregate this data, and may combine this data with other information we collect about you to better understand how visitors use our site, improving user experience, and to help manage, maintain, and report on use of our website. We also store IP addresses for fraud detection and prevention purposes.
7. Notice Regarding Targeted (Behavioral) Advertising
We partner with third parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies to display advertising on our Website and manage our advertising on other websites. As described above, our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on our Website and other websites (such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) in order to make predictions about your preferences and provide you with tailored advertising across the Internet based upon your browsing activities and interests. This information may also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns. Our use of personal information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising purposes constitutes the “sharing” of personal information under the CCPA.
Some of the advertisers and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us and third parties may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioural Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices, http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for information on the DAA’s opt-out program for mobile apps.
Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices.
If you are a resident of California, Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, or Utah, you have the right to opt out of our use of your personal information for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads. Residents of these states may opt-out by emailing us at email@example.com.
To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt-out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt-out again. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertisements. You will continue to receive generic advertisements from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioral information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
We may also partner with third-party service providers to engage in “profiling” which is defined in the VCPA, CPA, and CPDPA as “any form of automated processing performed on personal data to evaluate, analyze, or predict personal aspects related to an identified or identifiable natural person’s economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements.” Residents of Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut may opt out of processing of your personal information for purposes of profiling by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
