Remarketing

We use Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise across the Internet. AdWords remarketing will display ads that have been tailored to you based on what parts of our website you have visited. They do this by placing a cookie on your machine. This cookie does not identify you or give access to your computer in any way. The cookie is used as a way to know what pages you have visited, and to allow us to show you only ads that relate to those pages you have visited. This means we will continue to show ads to you across the internet, specifically on the Google Content Network (GCN). We are not collecting any identifiable information through the use of Google’s or any other 3rd party remarketing system.

When you visit our site, the server housing the pages automatically generates a "session log". We use this information to help us determine how people travel through our site. In this way, we can structure our pages so that the information most frequently visited is easier to find. By tracking page visits, we can also determine if the information we are providing is being used. The only data gathered is the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you came (which contains no personal information), the website that referred you, the pages you visited and the date and time of those visits.

You may also be directed to our site through banner ads or site links. Banner ads or site links that are placed by us use cookies or web beacons to deliver metrics on the effectiveness of the ads or links but do not collect any personally identifiable information.

Cross-device tracking

We use cross device identification to advertise to you. Across different devices. Cross-device identification and tracking is the process of recognizing which device you are using e.g. desktop computers, smartphones, tablets, etc. Cross-device identification requires a specific user identifier that is common to different devices. User identification can be based upon login usernames for Facebook, Google and Twitter, etc. The specific user identifier can also be tied to the different devices associated with a unique user or household through device matching process based on IP addresses or other data.

How to Opt Out of Remarketing and Advertising

If you do not wish to participate in our Google AdWords Remarketing, you can opt out by visiting Google's Ads Preferences Manager. You can also opt out of any third-party vendor's use of cookies by visiting www.networkadvertising.org/choices/
