Interest-Based Advertising/Advertising Cookies
Spring Living Retirement Communities uses third parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies that use their own tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) to serve advertisements on our Website and other websites (including social media sites). This is a common marketing practice referred to as interest-based or online behavioural advertising. These companies may collect information about your activity on our Website and third-party websites (such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) and use this information to make predictions about your preferences and deliver ads that are more relevant to you on third party websites. This information may also be used to track and evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns.
For more information about interest-based advertising on your desktop or mobile browser and to understand your options, including how you can opt-out of receiving interest-based ads from third-party advertising companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Interest-Based Advertising, please visit the DAAC website at http://youradchoices.ca/choices.
Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioural information about you and may, therefore, be less relevant to you and your interests.
