How does CnetLabs collect your information?​

CnetLabs  uses cookies and other internet technologies in the management of our Web Sites and email programs in an effort to enrich your online experience. “Cookies” are small text files containing small amounts of information that are sent to your computer’s browser and stored on your device when you visit a website. Upon your first visit to our Web Sites, a cookie will be sent to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie.

Many major web services use cookies to provide useful features for their users, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Our cookies do not contain any information that is personally identifiable.

​Like many web sites, CnetLabs uses pixel tags, also known as web beacons, clear gifs, or web bugs, which are small graphic files that allow us and third parties to monitor the use of the Web Sites and collect usage data. We may use pixel tags, either provided by us or by our third-party advertisers, service providers and ad networks, to collect information about your visit, including the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears, the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with our Web Sites and use them in combination with our cookies to provide offers and information of interest to you. Pixel tags help us improve our understanding of our web traffic and visitor behavior, as well as gauge the response to our promotional efforts.

​We use industry-standard, third party advertising service companies to target and serve advertisements when you visit our Sites or open our emails. These third party companies may use cookies, pixel tags, and other similar technologies to collect information about your visit to our Web Site, and other websites, in order to provide you with relevant advertisements about products, services, and events.

These collection methods do not typically include your name, address, or telephone number. These elements also provide us with aggregate pictures of traffic patterns, which help us to improve your experience on our Web Sites and monitor advertising effort. This usage data we collect does is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Data.
