The AE website is a information and services site. By using the AE website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
AE may collect personally identifiable information, such as your name. If you purchase AE products and services, we collect billing and credit card information. This information is used to complete the purchase transaction. We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future.
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by AE. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the AE website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through AE’s public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
AE encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from AE so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. AE is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the AE website.
Use of your Personal Information
AE collects and uses your personal information to operate its website(s) and deliver the services you have requested.
AE may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from AE and its affiliates. AE may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
AE does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
AE may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. AE may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to AE, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
AE may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within AE, in order to determine what AE services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within AE to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
AE will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AE or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AE; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of AE, or the public.
The AE website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize AE pages, or register with AE site or services, a cookie helps AE to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same AE website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the AE features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the AE services or websites you visit.
What are Dynamic Ads?
Dynamic Ads are ads that are personalized in real-time to the user. Unlike static ads that show the same content on every impression, Dynamic Ads enable the advertiser to display a unique creative for different users. Dynamic Ads are the only feasible way to scale up the number of creatives per campaign and to personalize them on each impression.
What is ReTargeting?
The main goal of ReTargeting Ads is to re-engage site visitors after they have left the site. Dynamic ReTargeting Ads are generated based on the actual products or offers viewed on the advertiser’s site. For example if you’ve visited a retailer’s website and viewed a specific product, you might receive a banner ad containing that product. Rather than showing the same ad to every visitor, AE’s Dynamic Ad Application will select the most relevant ad copy based on the user’s activity on the site. AE’s Personalized ReTargeting Platform works when an advertiser places our tag on his website. The tag embeds a third party cookie on the browser of users visiting the site. Using Real Time Bidding (RTB) Ad Exchanges, it is then possible to focus media buying efforts against those visitors. It is important to note that the cookie itself does not contain any personal identifying information. Our Personalized ReTargeting ads intelligently match the right offering to each visitor based on his previous activities on the site. Each advertiser using AE’s services is responsible to limit the number of ad impressions shown to each user in order to ensure that viewers are not overly exposed to specific ads.
How Can I Remove Myself from Being ReTargeted?
AE makes removing our tracking cookie easy for any user who wishes to do so. Users that don’t want to see AE Personalized Ads should simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Security of your Personal Information
AE secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
Children Under Thirteen
AE does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website.
