2. ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING

We may, from time to time, use one or more analytics services (such as Google Analytics) to evaluate your use of the Website, and compile reports on activity based on our Partners’ collection of IP addresses, internet service provider, browser type, and other similar usage information. These Partners use cookies to collect this usage information. By accessing and using the Website, you thereby consent to the processing of data about you by these other entities in the manner and for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy.

We may, from time to time, share your usage and contact information with third parties for certain marketing or advertising purposes, such as technology services for ad distribution and ad optimization (defined as the tailoring, targeting (i.e., behavioral, contextual, and retargeting), analyzing, managing, reporting, and optimizing of ads), to the extent permitted by law.

We also may, from time to time, use audience matching services to reach people (or people similar to people) who have visited our Services or are identified in one or more of our databases (“Matched Ads”). For example, we do this by uploading a customer list to a technology service or incorporating a pixel from a technology service into our own Service, and the technology service matches common factors between our data and their data. These technology services may act as our service providers and sometimes retain our list for their matching purposes.

3. YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES

You have many rights and choices regarding the data we collect about you, including the right to opt-out of us sharing certain data about you.

  1. Opt-Out of Sharing.

You may submit a request to opt-out of us sharing your information with third parties for marketing or advertising purposes, such as technology services (when they are not acting merely as our service providers) for ad distribution, ad optimization (defined as the tailoring, targeting (i.e., behavioral, contextual, and retargeting), analyzing, managing, reporting, and optimizing of ads), or list matching.

To opt-out, please send us an email at shop@Giadzy.com stating your desire to opt-out in the subject line.

You may opt-out of the tailoring of advertising based on information we collect. We also may, from time to time, use technology services (for example, Google Adwords) to advertise to users of our Website on websites owned or operated by other entities. This means that we advertise to previous visitors to the Website who have not completed a task on the Website, such as leaving un-purchased items in your shopping cart. For Google Adwords, you can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to, you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.

  1. Account Information Choices.
    You may access, update, or remove certain information that you have provided to us through your account by visiting your account settings or sending an email to the email address set out in the “Contact Us” section below.

    1. Cookies and Pixels. Most browsers accept cookies by default. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to decline or delete cookies. If you use multiple browsers on your device, you will need to instruct each browser separately. Your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
    2. Do Not Track. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, that there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do about these signals. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor, recognize, or honor any opt-out or do not track mechanisms, including general web browser, “Do Not Track” settings, and/or signals.

Please be aware that if you disable or remove tracking technologies, some parts of the Services may not function correctly as intended.

You may also opt-out of and manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of any Giadzy marketing email and following the instructions found on the page to which the link takes you. You cannot opt-out of receiving transactional e-mails related to your Registered User account, any Product orders, or Giadzy’s ongoing business relations to the extent permitted by law.
  1. Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising.

Google provides tools to allow you to opt-out of the use of certain information collected by Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and by Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

4. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

We implement and maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of personal information, designed to help protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of such information, and to comply with applicable laws and regulations.

11. Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.1)

The Website works with Mediavine to manage third-party interest-based advertising appearing on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.

First-party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons, and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The "help" feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notifications of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies, and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.

Without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. If you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.

The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:

  • IP Address
  • Operating System type
  • Operating System version
  • Device Type
  • Language of the website
  • Web browser type
  • Email (in hashed form)

Mediavine Partners (companies listed below with whom Mediavine shares data) may also use this data to link to other end-user information the partner has independently collected to deliver targeted advertisements.

Mediavine Partners may also separately collect data about end users from other sources, such as advertising IDs or pixels, and link that data to data collected from Mediavine publishers to provide interest-based advertising across your online experience, including devices, browsers, and apps. This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.

If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit the National Advertising Initiative opt-out page. You may also visit the Digital Advertising Alliance website and the Network Advertising Initiative website to learn more information about interest-based advertising. You may download the AppChoices app at Digital Advertising Alliance’s AppChoices app to opt-out in connection with mobile apps or use the platform controls on your mobile device to opt-out.
