How this information may be used
Whenever you give us your personal information we will use it in accordance with applicable privacy laws and for the purposes set out in this policy, on the data entry forms you complete, in any relevant terms and conditions and on pages or emails which link to the data entry forms.
We collect your account information for internal use only and we do not share this information with our third parties. When you log into your account or register you acknowledge all privacy statements in relation to your account. We do not sell your details nor do we amend your account details without your prior given consent.
Tracking how our online services are used
We collect, and use third parties to collect and share with us, information from lots of visitors to our online services and analyse it to build up a picture of how people use our website, such as the Google Analytics cookies and Google advertising cookies. This helps us improve the services we offer. We may also give anonymous statistics about visitors to other, reputable organisations, but the information we provide will not include details that would allow these organisations to identify you.
Customization of our online services and advert targeting
We may use the information you give us about yourself and the information we collect via cookies when you use our online services to build up a picture of your interests. We may then use this information to try to make sure that when we send you marketing communications and when you visit our websites or use our online services, you don’t miss offers and information that might interest you. This information may also be used by our third party advertising agencies and networks, to advertise our own or third party products and services to you when you visit third party websites and online services.
We may use the remarketing capabilities of third parties such as Google and Facebook, to enable us to reach people who have previously visited our website and provided them with more relevant advertising content. Our marketing ads may also show to these customers when they visit other websites in the Google Display Network. Remarketing is a feature of interest-based advertising that helps you match interested people with the right message.
Advertising Reporting Features
We will collect cookies and information to create a profile of Audience Demographics and Interests Reporting, use Google’s DoubleClick Campaign Manager reporting, DoubleClick Bid Manager reporting, and Google Display Network Impression Reporting to fulfil our marketing initiatives. This will be only used by HoMie to create future marketing campaigns and track the effectiveness of existing and past campaigns.
