AdIvy Privacy Policy

AdIvy knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy. By visiting the website and domain name (collectively, the “Website”), and/or using any other linked pages, features, content, or application services offered from time to time by AdIvy in connection therewith (collectively the “Service”), you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy.

1. What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers AdIvy’s treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that AdIvy gathers when you access the Website and/or use some other features of the Service. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that AdIvy does not own or control, or to individuals that AdIvy does not employ or manage.

2. What Personal Information Does AdIvy Collect?

The information we gather enables us to personalize and improve our services. We collect the following types of information from our users:

  1. Personal Information You Provide to Us
  2. We receive and store any information you enter on the Website or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected include your full name, email address, IP address, browser information, username, password and any other information necessary for us to provide the Service, including the usernames and passwords for your accounts and profiles on third-party sites with which the Service interoperates. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as answering questions, sending product updates, and communicating with you about AdIvy’s products and services, including specials and new features.

  3. Personal Information Collected Automatically
    • We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or use another feature of our Service. AdIvy automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
    • More generally, our Service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Website and its components similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. AdIvy only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Website or another feature of the Service so that we can make the Website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve the Service. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our Service. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, AdIvy never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
    • E-mail Communications
    • We often receive a confirmation when you open an email from AdIvy if your computer supports this type of program.AdIvy uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.

3. What About Cookies?

We use cookies to enhance visitor experiences, to learn more about their use of the Website and to improve quality.

Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We require that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of core features of the Website.

Ads appearing on the Website or in other features of the Service may be delivered to users by our advertising partners, who may set cookies.
