We may use third-party web analytics services on our Services, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the Automatically-Collected Information section above to help us analyze how users use the Site, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Site. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to online marketing, as described in the following section.
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you.
We do not serve third party advertisements to you while using Factoreal.com. However, we do work with website analytics and advertising partners, including Google Display Network, Facebook, etc. to deliver Factoreal advertisements on third party publisher websites – these partners may set cookies on your computer’s web browser. These cookies allow our partners to recognize your computer so that the ad server can show you Factoreal advertisements elsewhere on the Internet, and so that our analytics software can measure your engagement and interactions while using Factoreal.com. In this way, ad servers may compile anonymous, de-identified information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw our advertisements, whether or not you interacted with our advertisements, and actions performed on subsequent visits to Factoreal.com. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you, and it allows Factoreal to optimize the performance of our advertising campaigns and the usability of our website. In other words, we use analytics data along with data about our online ads that have been shown using the Google Display Network, Facebook for Advertisers, or other online advertising networks. By doing so, we can understand how anonymous users interacted with our website after seeing our ads.
We used trusted partners like Google, Facebook, Linkedin to help us service advertising, who may place cookies on your device. We may pull through content from social networks into our own pages, such as embedded Twitter feeds. The social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter Google, etc. may themselves also put cookies on your machine. This is the same process as if the user logs into Facebook directly, or clicks ‘Like’ on any other website.
We also use Google Analytics on our Services to help us analyze how our Services are used. Google Analytics uses performance cookies to track customer’s interactions. For example, by using cookies, Google can tell us which pages our users view, which are most popular, what time of day our websites are visited, whether visitors have been to our websites before, what website referred the visitor to our websites, and other similar information. All this information is anonymized.
We have little control over these ‘third party’ cookies, so we suggest that you check the respective privacy policies for these external services to help you understand what data these organizations hold about you and what they do with it.
We may also use electronic images known as web beacons on our Services – sometimes called “clear GIFs”, “single-pixel GIFs”, or “web bugs”. Web beacons are used to deliver cookies on our Services, count clicks/users/visitors, and deliver co-branded content or services. We may include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or other to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Factoreal site may also contain web beacons from third parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other website operations. These web beacons may allow the third parties to set or read cookies on your device.
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you choose to turn off these cookies you will still see advertising on the internet but it may not be tailored to your interests. It does not mean that you won’t be served any advertisements whilst you are online. Whilst many companies involved in using advertising cookies and serving online behavioral advertising appear at the above link, not all do. Therefore, even if you choose to turn off cookies used by all the companies listed, you may still receive some advertising cookies and some tailored advertisements from other companies.
