While we do employ secure 3rd party systems (e.g. our Customer Relationship Management system and Email Marketing system), we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with sufficient advance notice of such transfer to permit you to decline the transfer. This exclusion does not include our website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing our users, so long as those parties agree to keep such information confidential. We may also release information when it’s release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information (e.g. traffic data, click data, etc.) may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
We do include or offer third-party products or services on our website.
Google’s advertising requirements are summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They were put in place to provide a positive experience for users.
We have implemented the following:
- Demographics and Interests Reporting
We along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and/or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
You may set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out of the receipt of any advertising by Google by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
User email campaigns
We automatically place single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email sent by our users. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us to recognize when subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took.
Google remarketing ads: The Google remarketing ads feature (also known as web retargeting ads) allows our users to create and manage advertisements on the Google Display Network. Mailchimp installs a Google tracking pixel on our Site through the Snippet. The Snippet also allows our Site to set a Mailchimp cookie that will recognize Site visitors via ads placed with the Google remarketing ads feature. These technologies facilitate the placement of advertising campaigns on the Google Display Network and enable Mailchimp to provide reporting to our users about the performance of these advertising campaigns. To refuse these cookies, please click on the relevant opt-out link here: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin
Product retargeting emails: Our product retargeting emails feature allows us to promote new items or best sellers to subscribers. When a subscriber clicks a link within a product retargeting email, the Site drops a Mailchimp cookie on that subscriber’s device that is placed through the Snippet. This cookie allows Mailchimp to track attribution rates and browser activity and provide reporting regarding the success of product retargeting emails. To refuse this cookie, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”
Popup forms: The Snippet will allow a user’s Site to deploy a Mailchimp cookie that recognizes whether a visitor to that user’s Site has previously viewed a popup form and ensures the same visitor does not see the form again for a period of up to one year.
