General Privacy Practices

Tracking Technologies

Log Files

WebsiteSuggestions.net also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites using log files.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by WebsiteSuggestions.net. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by WebsiteSuggestions.net for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the WebsiteSuggestions.net website. For these purposes, we do link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information such as name, email address, address, and phone number.

Cookies

The WebsiteSuggestions.net website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web server. Cookies are not 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 WebsiteSuggestions.net pages, or register with WebsiteSuggestions.net site or services, a cookie helps WebsiteSuggestions.net 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 WebsiteSuggestions.net website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the WebsiteSuggestions.net 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 WebsiteSuggestions.net services or websites you visit. WebsiteSuggestions.net keeps track of the websites and pages you visit within WebsiteSuggestions.net, in order to determine what WebsiteSuggestions.net services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within WebsiteSuggestions.net to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Advertising

We partner with a third party ad network to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites.  Our ad network partner uses cookies and Web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other Web sites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

We employ [or 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 tie [do not tie] the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.

We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients.  This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.  If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”

Third Party Tracking Technologies

The use of cookies and web beacons by any tracking utility company is not covered by our privacy statement.  We do not have access or control over these third party tracking technologies.
