TYPES OF USE
Information collected on the Website may be used in a number of ways, including but not limited to: operating and maintaining the Website, identifying you as a user of the Website and customizing the Website to your usage, to send you emails notifying you of new posts or newsletters, to respond to your comments and inquiries, to provide you with user support, to track and measure advertising on the Website, and to protect, investigate, and deter against unauthorized or illegal activity.
Third Parties. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent.
The Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.
The Website currently uses Google Analytics to track Website usage and provide information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
Anonymous Data. From time to time, we may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties. This type of anonymous data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Examples of this anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies.
Display Ads. The Website may display third-party advertisements in order to support Two Red Bowls. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers information, including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing California real estate ads to someone in California, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites). If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
Affiliate Program Participation. The Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
Two Red Bowls is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
Newsletters and Email Subscriptions. On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
