Data Collection through Sizmek Services
Sizmek's technology may be deployed on other websites to collect information that may be used for online ad tailoring purposes or to deliver an advertisement to you from a company whose website you have visited in the past.  Sizmek's technology may employ cookies to collect non-personally identifying information, such as information related to advertising campaign results, in the course of providing its clients with its ad-serving services and for the purpose of helping its clients determine which advertisement is suitable to be delivered to you.  This non-personally identifiable information collected through a cookie may be shared with our customers for their advertising purposes and may be combined by them with other data, including personal information, in possession of our customers.

A cookie is a small text file that can be stored on your computer when that computer’s browser views one of Sizmek’s client's advertisements or websites.  The cookie does not contain your name, address, phone number, email address, or anything that personally identifies you.  Sizmek collects into the cookie only non-personally identifying information such as the computer’s IP address, type of the computer’s operating system, type of internet browser software, what web pages were viewed and at what time, geographic location of a consumer's internet service provider, and demographic information collected through anonymous online surveys such as gender and age range. 

Information Collection on Behalf of Third Parties
On occasion, at the request and on behalf of an advertiser, Sizmek may collect information supplied voluntarily by consumers through their interaction with the body of advertisements on other websites, which may include personally identifiable information (your name, email, etc.) fields filled by you.  This information is provided directly to the advertiser on whose behalf the information was collected, and is not kept by Sizmek.  Advertisers are limited by contract to use this data solely for the purposes identified within the advertisement to provide you with requested goods, services, or information as established within that advertiser's privacy policy.  Sizmek is not responsible for the advertisers' use of this voluntarily supplied data.  Sizmek does not distribute this information to any party other than those indicated within the advertisement. Sizmek never associates any of this information with any data gathered or used in the delivery of that advertisement.

Links to Other Sites
Our site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different from ours.  In addition, there may be links to other sites provided within the body of advertisements on other websites.  We do not have control over the information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.  You should consult the privacy policy of these other sites to learn how your privacy is protected. 

Data Security and Retention
We have reasonable security measures in place to help protect your personally identifiable information that is collected through our web site or voluntarily submitted through your interaction with a Sizmek advertisement.  However, no system can be completely secure, and we make no guarantees as to the safety or security of any information transmitted to or from this site or through our services.  Sizmek retains anonymous log file data for up to thirteen months, following which the data is deleted. 

The Opt-Out Cookie & Your Choices
Sizmek allows consumers to opt out of having online ads tailored using the Sizmek ad-serving cookie. Blocking and/or opting out of cookies does not stop advertisements from being served to your computer; rather, it prevents data from being associated with your browser. Please note that if you choose an opt-out cookie, we will be unable to recognize your browser from one visit to the next, and you may therefore receive the same ad multiple times.

Click here for the Sizmek ad-serving cookie opt-out. The cookie will apply to the specific browser you are using; if you wish to opt out for other browsers or computers that you use, you must repeat the process using these browsers or computers.  All other cookies associated with your browser will remain intact and your opt-out will be effective with respect to the browser used as long as you do not delete the cookie file from your hard drive. This opt-out process will erase the cookie ID but not the cookie. It's necessary for us to store this "Keep Out" cookie on your computer in order to recognize you as an opt-out user. Please note that if you erase all cookies from your computer, you will also erase our opt-out cookie and will need to repeat the process of opting out.  You may also opt out by clicking here to visit the website of the NAI.
