Information we collect when you visit our sites, use our services, or view our online advertisements:
Examples of cookies our website may use include Google’s Dynamic Ad Serving feature, which uses the Teracent cookie and DoubleClick’s DART cookie. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our site and/or other sites on the internet.
The Site may use other tracking tools, including web beacons. Web beacons are images on the Site (or in emails that the Site sends to you) that help us determine what parts of the Site you have visited, whether you have opened an email that we have sent to you, or otherwise to measure the effectiveness of the Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information directly to us or to a service provider authorized by us to collect information on our behalf.
Personalized retargeting is another form of internet based advertising that enables our advertiser partners to show you ads based on your online browsing away from https://ductlessdirectory.com. For example, if you visited the website of an online book store you may start seeing adverts from the same book store displaying special offers or showing you the products that you were browsing when you come to https://ductlessdirectory.com. This allows companies to advertise to people who previously visited their website.
Although these internet based advertising technologies can track your visits around the web they do not identify who you are personally. Even if you sign in to https://ductlessdirectory.com, the internet based advertising data is still not linked to your personal information.
The following are examples of information we may collect with these technologies:
Your browser type and operating system.
Web pages you view.
Links you click.

Ductless Directory emails you open and/or forward
Ductless Directory offers or links you connect to via emails.

Consumer and market research data.
Publicly observed data or activities, such as blogs, videos, internet postings, user generated content, and in-store shopping behavior.
