Any information that you choose to disclose by means of such features becomes public information over which Online Exchange is unable to maintain control.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

As part of our on-going efforts to ensure the best possible experience for all recipients of Online Exchange advertising, we may use log files, web beacons and cookies (defined below) to collect and store data from browsers, advertiser and third party sites to aggregate information. The information collected is used for marketing purposes, enables us to determine which advertisements perform well, allows us to more effectively match advertisements and website content to your interests, assists us in improving the operation of our services, helps us to maintain the quality of our services, enhances our services to our business partners and clients and enables us to provide general statistics to our business partners and clients regarding the use of Online Exchange’s services.

Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate and gather broad geographic and demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies and are used to track the online movements of web users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear gifs are tied to users’ personally identifiable information to allow us to keep track of the orders of users that have entered our site via third-party advertising.

In addition, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails, please see the Opt-out section.

Cookies

A “Cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the website. The purpose of a Cookie is to identify the user as a unique user of the Website. Online Exchange uses Cookies to customize your experience on the website to your interests to ensure that you do not see the same advertisements or informational messages repeatedly.  Cookies are used to improve the experience web users have when they see web advertisements. When a consumer responds to or views an internet advertisement served by Online Exchange (such as through third-party Web sites or email solicitation) or visits an Online Exchange network site, we send a Cookie and/or gif file to assign an anonymous, unique identifier to the end user’s internet browser. One function of these Cookies is to provide Online Exchange with information for the purpose of paying third-parties commissions when an Internet user clicks on a link, creates a lead, or makes a purchase on an advertiser’s web site. If the Internet user re-visits the advertiser’s site directly, Online Exchange is able to continue to track the user’s activities on the advertiser’s site and compensate the third-party Web site that referred the user. We may use Cookies to estimate the total reach of an advertising campaign, as well as frequency of display. This allows advertisers to determine with greater accuracy the composition of the audience they reach. Cookies may also be used to control the delivery of a series of advertisements to a web browser and to limit the number of times a web browser receives any one advertisement. We also may use internet browsing and online purchase data associated with an anonymous identifier to develop a predictive statistical user profile of the end user’s needs and interests. We reserve the right to retain all ad delivery and reporting data as long as may be reasonably necessary for accounting and audit purposes.

If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer, you should set your browsers to refuse cookies before accessing the website, with the understanding that certain of the services and features of the website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. If you refuse cookies, you assume all responsibility for any resulting loss of functionality.

Information Shared by Online Exchange

Online Exchange will only share your Information for the limited purposes provided for in this Privacy Policy. This may include sharing information (1) to enable third party service providers to assist or facilitate in the services we provide to our clients; (2) to comply with applicable laws and regulations or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information received by us, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (3) to enforce our terms of use and other agreements or to protect our rights; (4) to protect the safety of members of the public and users of the service; (5) with other related Online Exchange entities and third party marketing partners (including advertisers and publishers) for marketing purposes; (6) with vendors, administrative service providers, technology providers and carefully selected partners for data validation, enhancement, information verification and suppression services; or (7) for any other purpose for which you provide consent.

While Online Exchange chooses its business partners and clients carefully and strongly encourages them to adopt responsible approaches to online marketing, Online Exchange is not responsible for the information and privacy practices of such third parties. The collection, use, and disclosure of information by clients and partners are subject to their respective privacy policies, which may differ from this Privacy Policy. You should check the applicable privacy policies of these third parties to determine how they handle any information they receive.

Security

Online Exchange employs appropriate measures to ensure the security of all information and we routinely evaluate our practices to identify security threats or opportunities for the improvement of our services. No transmission of information is guaranteed to be completely secure. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure and other factors may compromise data security. You acknowledge and agree to assume this risk when communicating with us.

Changes

As the standards governing Internet privacy continue to evolve; Online Exchange may find it appropriate or necessary to update this Privacy Policy from time to time. As a result, we reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time and shall post such changes on the Website. Our Website will state the date the Privacy Policy was last updated. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you use this website to make sure you understand how your information will be used. Although most changes are likely to be minor, Online Exchange reserves the right, at any time and without notice, to add to, update, change or modify this Privacy Policy, simply by posting such update, change or modification on this page. Any such addition, update, change or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on the website. Each time you use the website, the then-current version of this Privacy Policy will apply. Accordingly, each time you use the website you should check the date of this Privacy Policy (which appears at the end) and review any changes since the last time you used the Website.

Traffic Data

Like most website operators, Online Exchange typically gathers information of the sort that browsers automatically make available, including: (i) IP addresses; (ii) domain servers; (iii) types of computers accessing the Website; and (iv) types of Web browsers accessing the Website. Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.

Profile

Online Exchange stores information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs and/or third parties to create a profile of our users. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that details their viewing preferences.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site that they should read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
