Detailed information on interest-based advertising
Through the Services, we might display ads as well as permit third-party ad networks, such as ad servers, ad networks, advertising agencies, and research companies, to do so. Users who match broad profile categories or exhibit preferences or behaviors may be shown these advertisements (“Interest-Based Ads”). You may give us information for interest-based advertising (including personal data), or we may get it from the way a specific user uses the Services and/or third-party services. Such data may be gathered by monitoring users’ actions over time and across unrelated websites, such as when you exit the Services. To do this, we or our service providers may send Cookies to you via the Services, along with a file (also referred to as a “web beacon”) from an ad network. Ad networks can provide aggregated, anonymous auditing, research, and reporting for marketers and us thanks to web beacons. Ad networks can deliver targeted advertisements to you when you browse other websites thanks to web beacons. Ad networks can watch, modify, or set their own Cookies on your browser using web beacons, just as if you had requested a web page from the ad network’s website.
We adhere to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). (“Interest-Based Advertising Policy – Digital Element”) Several media and marketing associations have created an industry self-regulatory program through the DAA and Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) to give consumers a better understanding of and greater control over ads that are tailored based on a consumer’s online behavior across different websites and properties. Please visit the DAA’s or NAI’s consumer opt-out pages at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ or www.aboutads.info/choices to make decisions about Interest-Based Ads from participating third parties, including to opt-out of receiving behaviorally targeted advertisements from participating organizations.
Data Retention and Security
We use suitable physical, technical, organizational, and administrative security measures depending on the type of Personal Data and how we process that data to safeguard your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. By carefully choosing and safeguarding your password and/or other sign-on method, limiting access to your computer or device and browser, and signing off after using your account, you can further help secure your data. Please be aware that no method of transmitting data over the internet or storing data is entirely secure, despite our best efforts to safeguard the security of your account and other data that we keep in our files.
We keep your personal information on file for as long as your registration with us is active or as long as it takes to deliver our services to you. When it comes to meeting our legal obligations, resolving disputes, collecting fees owed, or in other situations where it is allowed or required by relevant law, rule, or regulation, we occasionally keep Personal Data for longer periods of time.
