Our third party advertising partner employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.Log Files
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We will send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. If you do not want to receive email from us in the future, please let us know by contacting us at support [@] brainhost.com.Service Providers
We use other third parties such as a credit card processing company to bill you for services, an email service provider to send out emails on our behalf, a client services partner to provide account management tools and a live chat provider to assist you if you have questions while using our site or regarding your order, and trusted third party advertising partners to send you special offers and promotions that we feel may be of interest to you You may receive these messages via phone, SMS, email or direct mail. When you sign up for our services, we will share your personal information only as necessary for the third party to provide that service. If you do not wish to receive advertisements from our partners please contact us at support [@] brainhost.com or you may unsubscribe from particular advertisements by clicking the unsubscribe link within the advertisement.Re-Targeted Advertising
Re-Targeted advertising uses information collected on an individual’s web browsing behavior such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made. This information is then used to display ads. The information collected is only linked to an anonymous cookie ID (alphanumeric number); it does not include any information that could be linked back to a particular person, such as their name, address or credit card number. The information used for targeted advertising either comes from Brain Host or through third party website publishers.
