Retention of Personal Information
How long we keep the information we collect about you depends on the type of information as described in further detail below.
- We retain Personal Information that you provide to us where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, as long as is required in order to conduct advertising opportunities, or as needed to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce agreements).
- If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
- If you register as a user on our website, we store the information provided in your user profile indefinitely. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (however, you cannot change your username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We will delete this information from our servers at any time upon your request. Additionally, if you have elected to receive marketing communications from us, we will retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our content, products, or services (such as when you last opened an email from us).

3. How we share information we collect
The information collected using these tools may include your IP address, browser characteristics, operating system, the address of the web page that referred you to our Website, dates and times of Website visits, the language your system uses, and the country and time zone in which your device is located. These automated technologies also permit the collection of “clickstream data,” which may include a log of content you access while browsing the Website.
Companies acting on our behalf may combine the information collected from your visit to our Website with other information they have collected previously. Your web browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict, reject or disable certain cookies.
Embedded Content From Other Websites
Interest-Based Online Advertising and Google Analytics. Our Website uses interest-based online advertising (also called “targeted advertising”, “remarketing”, or “behavioral advertising”), Google Analytics, and AdWords search advertising.
We use Google Analytics’ 3rd-party audience data such as age, gender and interests to better understanding the behavior of our customers and work with companies that collect information about your online activities to provide advertising targeted to suit your interests and preferences. For example, you may see certain ads on this Website or other websites because we contract with Google and other similar companies to target our ads based on information we or they have collected, including information that was collected through automated means (such as cookies and web beacons). These companies also use automated technologies to collect information when you click on our ads, which helps track and manage the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests, by visiting the consumer opt-out page for the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising at http://www.aboutads.info/choic… (or if located in the European Union, by clicking here: http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/) and edit or opt-out your Google Display Network ads’ preferences at http://www.google.com/ads/pref… those opt-out and preference control pages are specific to the individual browser used to visit it, and because that page is not operated by A3 Visual., we are unable to perform the opt-outs on your behalf.
