How the Tool Works. For each visit to the site, the Tool: (1) identifies the traffic source for the visit; and (2) issues a unique visitor ID number and visitor traffic number. As the user navigates the site, the Tool may track and store the pages visited and features used. The Tool also may link information provided through forms featured on the site or during phone calls with a visitor ID number. Using local storage, the Tool may also store data in the user’s Internet browser or in a data repository on the user’s device for purposes of associating the user with his or her user profile. The Tool operates only on our site and phone system – it does not track information regarding your use of other sites or activities on other sites.
Blocking and/or Disabling the Tool. The Tool gathers information about the user’s computer hardware and software configurations to identify the user each visit and associate the user with their existing user profile. Unlike a “cookie”, and except for local storage discussed below, the system does not store a file on the user’s computer; therefore, the user information gathered is not deleted when the user clears their cache and/or deletes their cookies. In order to disable the tool, see the Opt Out instructions below.
Opt Out. The Tool’s opt-out functionality is cookie based, so for it to work for you, your browser must allow third party cookies. If you change computers, browsers or delete this cookie, we will no longer know you have opted out, so you will need to opt-out again. To opt out, visit: foureyes.adpearance.com/opt-out.
Do Not Track Signals. IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE TOOL TO GATHER INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR USER PROFILE AND SITE VISIT, NOW AND FOR FUTURE BROWSING SESSIONS. USE THE OPT OUT TOOL DESCRIBED ABOVE. WE DO NOT CURRENTLY RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK (DNT) SIGNALS.
As noted above, the Tool may also collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage and application data caches. Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in “local storage” mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions. Similarly, an application data cache is a data repository on a device. You may stop local storage from being used by modifying your Internet browser settings, but stopping local storage may result in the site having impaired or limited functionality. Furthermore, disabling local storage will not block the Tool from operating; rather, it will only prevent the Tool from collecting and storing information locally on your device. To disable the Tool, see the Opt Out instructions above. Further, you should refer to the help provided by your Internet browser for the most up-to-date and accurate instructions on disabling local storage.
