Consumer Privacy Policy for Product Links & Ads

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE INTERACTING WITH THE BUY BUTTONS OR PRODUCT ADS. BY CLICKING ON BUTTONS OR ADS, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

1. Introduction

Maintaining your privacy is one of our highest priorities. Accordingly, we have created this specific privacy policy ("Policy") to explain the practices of approved third parties ("Third Parties"), whose links may be traversed by you when clicking buttons or ads from this page, and their collection, use, and disclosure of your information as it relates to your redirection to the appropriate website and services (the "destination").

GeoRiot Networks, Inc., the company providing these "Choice Pages" from where you found the link to this privacy policy, maintains another privacy policy specifically for Genius Link clients who build links and the consumers who click said links. This policy can be found here.

2. Information Third Parties May Collect

Third Parties may collect non-personally identifiable information ("non-PII") from clicks on a Choice Page.

Non-PII does not identify you as an individual. Approved Third Parties may collect non-PII such as: (a) certain non-personal data when you click a link, such as the type of operating system or browser you are using, the URL of page from which you arrive or leave, your internet service provider, your mobile carrier; and (b) user information in a non-personal, aggregate format for statistical and research purposes.

3. How Third Parties May Collect Your Information

Third Parties may use a variety of methods to collect information from you, as described in this section below.

4.1. Our Choice Pages

When you click a link or ad from our Choice Pages, the link redirect collects the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you accessed our page, the Internet address of the page from which you clicked from, the operating system you are using, as well as the internet browser you are using.

4.2 Cookies and Web Beacons

The Third Parties, who manage the link redirects you may take in your path to a final destination, may receive and store certain types of non-PII by using "cookies," "web beacons" and analogous technology. "Cookies" are small files that are placed on your computer or your internet browser memory to enable the owner of the cookie to recognize your browser and to provide convenience and other features to you. It is important to note that the cookies do not contain and are not tied to PII about you.

You may be able to direct your internet browser not to allow cookies and you can typically delete existing cookies from your computer at any time. Please note, however, if you set such browser settings or delete existing cookies then some elements of certain website may not function properly or be available to you.

4.3 Preference Based Advertising

Certain Third Parties, including, but not limited to advertising networks and website analysis firms, have been permitted to place cookies on your computer or browser when you view, click or otherwise interact with advertisements or buy buttons that are featured on our Choice Pages. These third party cookies and analogous technology are used to gather non-PII about your activities during a link redirect and/or on third party sites you may visit to serve you with advertisements that are relevant to your interests and preferences while you are on third party sites. Some of these third parties participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA"), an industry self-regulatory program to give consumers a better understanding of and greater control over ads that are customized based on their online behavior across different websites. To learn more and make choices about preference-based ads from participating third parties, please visit the DAA website at www.aboutads.info.

4.4 Third Party Sites and Links

Our Choice Pages contain links to other websites or Internet resources which are provided solely for your convenience and information. When you click on one of those links you are contacting another website or Internet resource. We have no responsibility or liability for, or control over, those other websites or Internet resources or their collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those other websites to learn how they collect and use your personal information.

5. Disclosure or Sharing of Information

We may disclose information to:

  1. our third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf in connection with the operation of our Choice Pages, e.g., providers who host and manage data, provide or manage affiliate programs, etc.;

  2. promotional partners and others with whom we have marketing or other relationships;

In addition, we use non-PII to help analyze site traffic and understand customer needs and trends. We may use your non-PII by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others to produce research reports and other data about online shopping for participating merchants and other customers, as well as media and other interested parties.

The Third Parties may disclose information to:

  1. their third party service providers who perform functions on their behalf in connection with the operation of their links, e.g., providers who host and manage data, process credit card orders, deliver our merchandise, etc.;

  2. their parent company, subsidiaries or other affiliated companies ("affiliated companies") for operational, marketing and promotional purposes;

  3. promotional partners and others with whom they have marketing or other relationships.

6. Securing Your Personal Information

We, and the approved Third Parties, maintain appropriate and commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures in order to protect your personal information. Unfortunately, however, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. We cannot guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. By accessing the website you acknowledge and accept this risk.

7. Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may update or change this Policy from time to time, with or without any advance notice. The date of the last change or update to this Policy shall be noted at the end of this Policy, and any changes made will be effective upon posting of the revised version. If there are material changes in the way we handle your PII, or to the Policy itself, including changes to the Preference Based Advertising practices set forth above, we will notify you through displaying a notice on this page, so that you may review the changed terms prior to continuing to use our Choice Pages. We encourage you to check this Policy whenever you use our website and services to understand how your personal information is used.
