DO WE USE BEACONS (PIXELS)?

We and certain third parties may also use technologies called “beacons” (or “pixels”) that send information from your device to a server. Beacons can be embedded in internet content, videos, and emails to allow a server to read certain types of information from your device. Beacons can also be embedded to determine when you have viewed specific content or a specific email message, the time and date on which the beacon was viewed, and the IP direction of your device. We and certain third parties use beacons for a variety of purposes, such as to analyse the use of our Services and (in combination with cookies) to offer you more relevant content and advertisements.

Verina EE uses beacons (pixels) to administer the following advertising services:

Google AdWords

This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to this site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the our website. Any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.

Facebook and Instagram

This website uses Facebook custom audience targeting and Facebook conversion tracking to provide measurement services and information and target ads based on your behaviour on this website, including remarketing. Any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Facebook’s privacy policy. You can find out more information and learn how to manage your preferences here.

DO WE TRACK WHETHER USERS OPEN OUR EMAILS?

We automatically place single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in email campaigns sent using third party email marketing tools. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us and our users to recognize when their subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to users and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

Any changes we may make to this policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by email. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes.
