5. Behavioral Advertising and Opt Out.

Targeted advertising (also known as Behavioral Advertising) uses information collected on an individual’s web or mobile browsing behavior such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made. This information is then used to select which advertisements should be displayed to a particular individual on websites other than our website(s). 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 us or through third party website publishers.

If you would like to opt out of targeted advertising from us that occurs when visiting our third party advertising publishers, please send us a mail at privacy@kubity.com. Please note that this will opt you out of targeted ads from our Company and any other participating advertisers. If you opt out, you may continue to receive online advertising from us; however, these ads may not be as relevant to you. In order for behavioral advertising opt-outs to work on your Device, your browser must be set to accept cookies. If you delete cookies, buy a new Device, access our Services from a different device, or change web browsers, you will need to opt-out again. If your browser has scripting disabled, you do not need to opt out, as online behavioral advertising technology does not work when scripting is disabled. Please check your browser’s security settings to validate whether scripting is active or disabled.

Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies.

10. Specific Information about Cookies and other Technologies

Cookies are alphanumeric, and often encrypted, identifiers that are transferred to your computer or mobile device from your browser. They are created when a user’s browser is loading one Internet site: the website sends information to the browser which creates an alphanumeric file. Each time the user is visiting this particular website, the browser retrieves this file and sends it to the website’s server.

There are two types of cookies, which do not have the same purposes: technical cookies and advertising cookies as described below.

  • Technical cookies are used as you browse through the website, in order to facilitate such browsing and to carry out certain functions. A technical cookie may be used, for instance, to memorize the answers you provided in a sign-up form or preferences relating to the language or the presentation of an Internet site when such options are available.
  • Advertising cookies can be created not only by the website users are visiting, but also by other websites which provide advertisements, announcements, widgets or any other element on the displayed page. In particular, these cookies enable the use of the retargeting technique which is a marketing model whose purpose is to propose advertisements to the internet user that are adapted specifically for them.

Technical cookies we use are stored in your browser for a limited time of six months. You can refuse the installation of these cookies. However, this refusal could prevent you from using the services offered on the Website.

We use an audience analysis statistics tool that generates a cookie that enables us to measure the number of visits to our Website, the number of pageviews and visitors’ activity on the Website. This cookie is stored for a maximum of six months. Your IP address is also collected to determine the city you are connecting from.

To all intents and purposes, you can refuse the installation of cookies in your browser settings. Please note that third parties authorized by Kubity that provide advertisements, announcements, widgets or any other element displayed may also set and access cookies when you visit the Website. Please note that typically cookies do not contain personal data.

Pixel tags and other technologies may be set for the purposes of providing the Services, as well as to promote the services provided through advertising.

When you choose to provide your personal data you expressly give your consent for the collection, use, handle, transfer and retention of your personal data in compliance with the provisions set forth in this Privacy policy and the legislation in force. If the terms of this Privacy Policy do not suit you, you must no longer access the Website and/or use the services.

If you have given us your consent to process certain data, e.g. to receive a newsletter or third-party offers, you have the right to revoke this consent – also in part – at any time. You can usually do so by using the unsubscribe link.

In the case of direct advertising, you have a general right to object without having to provide information on the particular situation. Please inform us of your objection in writing to privacy@kubity.com.
