Browsing information: browsing information is information collected through cookies and web beacons to track what products you viewed and purchased, what areas or pages you viewed on the website, and other information about your browser and browsing behavior. We use browsing information to improve the design and content of the website, to suggest content and products that we think may be relevant to you, and to help us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors and what promotions visitors like to see, and to gauge the success of our advertising campaigns.
Interest-based advertising: interest-based advertising has become commonplace across the web. It is the term we use for the activity that enables us to tailor ads to your interests and activities. either ryan roche or third-party advertising companies we work with may look at your browsing activity, such as the types of content you access, ads you click on, and searches you conduct. We can then infer certain interests you have and place ads and offer you deals that meet your needs. our goal for interest-based advertising is to show ads to people likely to be interested in the products we offer at ryan roche
Personal information: any information that can be used to identify you is considered “personal information.” This includes your name, physical address, e-mail, phone number, fax number, and credit card information.
Third-party advertising companies: we allow certain companies to collect information from browsers of our website to serve interest-based ads. These companies are usually third-party ad servers, ad agencies, technology vendors or providers of sponsored content. Using cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies, these companies collect data from a particular browser about web viewing behaviors over time and across unrelated websites and use such data to predict user preferences and to deliver advertisements to that browser which are calculated to target that browser’s predicted preferences.
Web beacons: when you visit the website, web beacons will recognize specific cookies that have been placed on your browser. Web beacons can convey information that a browser with a recognized cookie has accessed a page or a certain part of a page on the website, depending on where the web beacon is located on the website. For example, a web beacon located on our purchase confirmation page will record that a browser with a recognized cookie accessed that page which means that we can conclude that the browser was used to purchase a product. the web beacon does not, however, tell us that you specifically (by reference to personal information) have purchased a product because the cookie only identifies the browser and not you personally.
We use web beacons to suggest content and products that we think may be relevant to you, to measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns and to improve the website by recognizing which pages are visited and whether those visits result in purchases. web beacons also allow third-party advertising companies we work with to select and serve banner advertisements to your browser that you would be most likely to be interested in.
