Cookies

We may store some information on your device or device hard drive as a “cookie” or similar type of file (such as clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with the Website. We may also use and place cookies on your device from our third party service providers in connection with the Website, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage and analyze Website usage. You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your device or flush them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences, in which case you may still use our Website, but it may interfere with some of its functionality. Cookies and similar items are not used by us to automatically retrieve personally identifiable information from your device without your knowledge.

Security and Data Retention

We have undertaken and will undertake commercially reasonable efforts designed to prevent unauthorized access to user data retained in our servers, however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information provided online. We retain your personally identifiable information, if provided by you through the Website for as long as we have a business need or until you request that we remove such information from our active records. Even if we delete some or all of your personally identifiable information, we may continue to retain and use aggregate or anonymous data previously collected and/or anonymize or aggregate your personal information.

THE IBA SERVICES

Interest Based Advertising

iSOCRATES uses and helps other parties use non-personally identifiable information in connection with the delivery of targeted advertising to you when you visit other services. Cookies, clickstream data, and other similar technologies may be used in this process. For example, if you are searching for information on shoes, we may cause an advertisement for shoes to appear on other web sites you view. This form of advertising, sometimes called “interest-based advertising,” is based on anonymous information and not on any personally identifiable information. As a result, we may know your interests, but cannot personally identify you in connection with the delivery of that specific ad. We believe that such advertising is helpful because you will see advertisements that are relevant to your interests and activities. However, if you would like to opt-out of these interest-based advertisements, please follow the opt-out process described below
We comply with the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising set forth by the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA).
You can opt-out of targeted advertising from certain providers, including iSOCRATES, at www.aboutads.info/consumers.
Please note that by opting out, you will continue to see generic advertising online, but it may not be tailored to your specific interests and activities. To be clear, whether you are using our opt-out or an online industry opt-out, these cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish to have opted-out, and if you clear the cookies from such device, you may need to repeat the opt-out process. For example, if you have opted out on your device browser, that opt-out will not be effective on your mobile device. You must separately opt out on each device.
Please note that we do not respond to or honor “do not track” (a/k/a/ DNT) signals or similar mechanisms transmitted by web browsers.
