Other information collected: We may collect information automatically regarding your interaction with our Site, advertisements and other promotional content using technologies like cookies and web beacons, and via our web server’s log files (as described further below). We may use these technologies to collect information from you, such as your IP address, browser information, your interaction with our advertisements, pages you’ve visited on the Site, previously visited websites, date and time information, and other navigation and click-through information. While information we collect may not be personally identifiable when collected, we may combine this information with personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, or other information that could be used to identify you. This information may be used to provide you with relevant advertising when visiting our Site, third party websites, or to send you email advertisements. This combined information is treated as personally identifiable information.

  2. When you provide it to us. We may collect your information when you submit an inquiry form or otherwise provide us with your personal information, including, name, telephone number, postal address, email address, or any other information provided.

Uses of Collected Information

We, or our trusted third party partners, may use the information we collect about you in any manner or purpose permitted by law, including, but not limited to combining your personally identifiable information, such as your email address, and information that does not identify you personally, such as your IP address, device ID, a unique cookie recognized on your browser, or information associated with such non-personally identifiable information, such as information about your browsing history, whether collected on our Site or a third-party site. We, or third parties we engage, may use this combined information to contact you by email to send you information about our services or products.

Further, we may share this information with trusted third parties for their marketing purposes, including but not limited to, delivering relevant advertising, by email or otherwise, with offers for goods and services that may interest you.

Tracking Technology and Cookies
Your web browser stores certain small data files called Cookies on your computer or device which we track to retain information about your interaction with this website and other websites. This enables us to provide content personalized to you, monitor marketing campaigns, track your submissions and gather information about how you interact with our Site or how you interacted with one of our advertisements. Cookies also make it possible for our Site to store your information, so you don’t have to enter your information each time you visit our Site. Cookies may be set by us or our business partners and service providers when you visit the Site or when you interact with one of our advertisements or other content. We use both persistent cookies which may remain on your computer until you proactively delete them and session cookies, which terminate when you close your browser.  If your web browser permits it, you may decline cookies. If you have questions about disabling cookies, you should consult with your browser’s manufacturer. Note, however, that some parts of the Site may not operate correctly if you disable cookies. We may also track your use of our Site, your interaction with our advertisements on our sites or other sites, and other content gathered through web beacons (also called pixel tags or clear gifs). Web beacons can be used for various purposes, including to help us improve our Site, services and marketing communications.

 

Targeted Ads and Analytics Services

We have relationships with third party advertising and analytics services companies that may place advertisements on our behalf onto other websites, perform tracking and reporting functions for those sites and our advertisements, and place third party advertisements on our Site. Information that these third parties may collect includes, but may not be limited to, information about the websites you’ve viewed and advertisements you’ve interacted with, along with your IP address, date and time of interaction, your ISP and the browser you use to visit this Site. This information may be combined with personally identifiable information like your name or email address or other personally identifiable information, and may be used to deliver advertising, including by email, and through Facebook, from us and from other companies targeted to your preferences and interests, and to better understand your interactions with our site and advertisements, and other websites and advertisements observed by these advertising companies among other uses.

To learn more about targeted advertising (also called interest-based advertising), analytics services and your choices, including how to opt-out of some third party ads, advertising networks and ad servers, you may wish to visit the DAA Consumer Opt-Out Page, NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page, and Google’s information page.
