Policy information regarding advertisements and cookies

 

In the following discussion of cookies, ‘we’ is in reference to the website, EthnoHerbalist.com. We use cookies and other technologies both to provide our services to you and to advertise to you. We also may work with partners to help them advertise to you when you visit other websites or mobile applications, and to help them perform user analytics. For example, ethnoherbalist.com is currently working with Google to provide Google ads that are customized to our audience.

The ethnoherbalist.com website includes advertising features that include: remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting and Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. There may also be other advertisements used on this website that are operated by other third-party vendors that use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as Google advertising cookies) or other third-party identifiers together.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to this website or other websites. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to users based on their visit to ethnoherbalist.com and/or other sites on the Internet. There may also be other third-party vendors and ad networks serving ads on the ethnoherbalist.com site.
Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings on third party vendor sites or by visiting aboutads.info.

These technologies may also be used to analyze how our users interact with advertising on our services and elsewhere, and more generally, to learn more about our users and what services or offers you might prefer to receive. We describe some of these technologies below.

 

What are cookies?

To enhance your online experience, we and our partners use “cookies”, “web beacons” or other tracking technologies. Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. We use cookies or other tracking technologies to understand service and internet usage and to improve or customize the products, content, offerings, services or advertisements on our website. We also may use cookies or other tracking technologies to help us offer you products, content, offerings or services that may be of interest to you and to deliver relevant advertising when you visit this service or when you visit other websites or applications. We, or a third party platform, with whom we work may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser to enable you to receive customized content, offers, services or advertisements on our services or other sites.

This website contains various advertising features, including: data collection for Display and Search Re-marketing, Audience Demographics and Interests Reporting, DoubleClick Campaign Manager reporting, DoubleClick Bid Manager reporting and Google Display Network Impression Reporting.

 

What type of information is collected with these cookies?

These cookies contain no information intended to identify you personally. The cookies may be associated with de-identified demographic or other data linked to or derived from data you voluntarily have submitted to us (e.g., your email address) that we may share with a service provider solely in hashed, non-human readable form. We may work with our partners (for instance, third party ad platforms) to synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers (such as those associated with cookies) in order to match our partners’ uniquely coded user identifiers to our own. We may do this, for instance, to enhance data points about a particular unique browser or device, and thus enable us or others to send ads that are more relevant, match users to their likely product interests, or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising. We, our third party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies, or our partners also may use cookies or other tracking technologies to manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed on or delivered by or through the ethnoherbalist.com website. This also helps us, our service providers and partners provide more relevant advertising.
