Working with Google:
Periodically, we may employ Google’s marketing technology to advertise our products. For an exhaustive overview of this process, please refer to the Google Marketing Program. It’s important to emphasize that we do not retain any personally identifiable information concerning our website visitors, nor do we intend to use such information.
Here are more information about how we use Google’s tools to target potential clients.
Internet Marketing Team utilizes data collection methods through Google and Facebook tools and scripts to gather insights into user activities on our website, as well as on the websites of our affiliated advertisers (“Advertisers”) and the platforms where we display ads (“Publishers”). It’s important to note that this data does not personally or directly identify individuals. The information gathered may encompass the content you interact with, the timestamps of your interactions, details of product purchases, and general location data linked to your IP address.
Our primary objective in collecting this information is to provide you with more tailored advertisements, a practice commonly known as “Retargeting.” To achieve this, we monitor where you encounter the ads we serve and which specific ads you engage with.
Moreover, we leverage Google Analytics’ third-party audience data, including demographic factors such as age, gender, and interests, to gain a deeper understanding of our customers’ behavior. We collaborate with companies that specialize in collecting data related to your online activities. This collaboration enables us to deliver advertising content that aligns with your interests and preferences. For instance, you may come across specific ads on our website or others because we partner with Google and similar entities to target ads based on data collected—often through automated methods like cookies and web beacons. These automated technologies also track interactions with our ads, aiding us in assessing and enhancing the effectiveness of our marketing endeavors.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it:
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites:
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with:
How long we retain your data:
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
