Like most websites on the internet, we use remarketing to help promote our brand and products. This means that if you have visited our website before or shared your email with us, we can show you ads about our products and services on other websites in the future. One of the ways we do this is with the help of Google AdWords Remarketing, Facebook Remarketing, Twitter Remarketing and other remarketing platforms.
AdWords Remarketing is a remarketing and behavioral targeting service provided by Google. It connects the activity of our websites with the Google Adwords advertising network and the Doubleclick Cookie. It allows us to share ads and banners to visitors of our website across the Doubleclick and Adwords advertising networks. You can opt out of the cookie tracking here: http://google.com/settings/ads/onweb/optout?hl=en
Twitter Remarketing is a remarketing and behavioral targeting service provided by Twitter. You can learn how to opt-out of this service here: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170405
We also use data from Google’s Interest-based advertising or 3rd-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests) with Google Analytics. This helps us to generally understand our audience demographics.
Other 3rd Party Cookies and Targeting
Like most websites on the internet, we use third party cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect and receive information on our website and also from other websites on the internet. This information is used to provide measurement services about our visitors and create targeted ads throughout the internet. You can opt out of the collection and use of this information.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards, blog posts, chat areas, comments sections or similar areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and the limits of this policy. Always be careful what you post on the internet.
If you choose to voluntarily disclose information on a message boards, blog posts, chat areas, comments sections or similar areas, we may choose to include all or part of your voluntarily disclosed information in other webpages or publications. Examples of this action include adding a post to a list of interesting questions submitted by readers or adding a post on a page of our website where we share positive testimonials or helpful comments.
