You may set your browser to refuse the cookies, but there may be pages on our website that you will not be able to access if you do.

Cookies also enable us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website. Together with our ad management partner(s), we may use this information to help us manage online advertising.

We also utilize a third party to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from the customers of our website to improve the quality of our website. No data collected by a third party on our behalf may be owned or used by that third party.

ADVERTISING TECHNOLOGY

Our online banner heat mapping technology may collect data related to the banner ads we run in order to assist advertisers with mouse over engagement related to said ad. This data may be used to determine the effectiveness of the ad, or its location within publisher inventory made accessible to us through the online banner eco-system.

We may collect the following categories of information for varying purposes as outlined below.

Device and browser information: This is technical information about the device or browser you use to access Publisher websites. For example, your device's IP address or cookie string data.

Ad data: This is data about the online ads we serve and your engagement with said ads. It includes things like how many times an ad has been served to you, what Publisher page the ad appeared on, and where. As well as whether you clicked on the ad, or otherwise interacted with the ad.

Data from Advertising Partners: The data we receive from other digital advertising companies we work with (“Advertising Partners”) helps us deliver ads to you and recognize you across browsers and devices. This may include pseudonymous advertiser identifiers that some Advertisers or other third party ad platforms choose to share with us, such as your "Customer ID" with an Advertiser. We may work with these Advertising Partners to synchronize their unique, anonymous identifiers with our own to enhance data points about a particular unique browser or device.

We also use this data to help our Advertisers identify and serve ads to you that are more relevant to you. We use this data to improve and enhance the delivery of banner ads that are more likely to engage you based on past performance. This data combined with additional data provided by our Advertising Partners assists with optimizing the performance of ads on publisher websites in association with data related to you and your engagement with the ad.
