Your privacy is OwnerIQ's top priority. At OwnerIQ we collect information about the products and services that people own, use or have shown interest in, and use that information to help our advertising and publishing partners provide relevant advertising and content to those people as they surf the internet. We gather only anonymous information about users from our owned and operated websites, where we provide free access to user manuals and support information, as well as from third-party websites we have partnered with to help gather this anonymous information ("Partner Websites").
OwnerIQ adheres to all industry guidelines with respect to protecting your privacy, and continues to review these guidelines in relation to our privacy policies in order to ensure the protection of consumer information. OwnerIQ is a member of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") an industry organization committed to creating comprehensive self-regulatory principles to protect consumer privacy. OwnerIQ's membership represents our commitment to adherence to these principles. As part of its commitment to the NAI, OwnerIQ further commits to compliance with the Digital Advertising Alliance Self Regulatory Principles relating to interest based advertising.
OwnerIQ enables its owned and operated sites and its partner websites to collect anonymous information on users with a particular focus on the products and services that people own and use, or those they have an interest in. The technologies utilized allow OwnerIQ to collect this information entirely anonymously. Neither the third-party site where this data is collected, nor OwnerIQ will ever be able to identify you individually based on the information that is collected. Anonymity is the foundation of this information gathering solution.
OwnerIQ operates an advertising platform and participates in advertising exchanges, where we help match advertisers, publishers, manufacturers and service providers with consumers based on products and services that those consumers own, use or have shown an interest in. We use the anonymous information gathered through cookies and “web beacons” to enable this advertising and content matching, providing the most relevant and informative advertising available to consumers as they travel the web.
OwnerIQ does not ask for or receive any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as a result of its use of the anonymous data collection technologies used to gather information about product preferences as described above.
If do not want cookies to serve you relevant advertising as described above, we want to be sure that you have a simple procedure that allows you to deny this feature. In order to "opt out" of the benefits of cookies, you may opt out. You may opt out of other online advertising companies that are members of the NAI as well by clicking here: NAI Opt-Out.
Please note that the opt-out process is a cookie based solution. If you should decide to clear your cookies on your browser, use a new or different browser, or buy a new computer, you will need to refresh your Opt-Out preferences either at either of the above OwnerIQ or NAI Opt-Out pages.
OwnerIQ's cookies are set to expire after 5 years. That time may be extended if the cookie is updated based on your visiting a particular web site that may update this cookie.
OwnerIQ will use non-PII in a number of ways. It will be used to:
We aggregate user information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing, promotional, and other purposes. OwnerIQ also discloses aggregated user statistics (for example, 15% of people anonymously identified by OwnerIQ own plasma TVs) in order to describe our services to prospective customers and partners, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. OwnerIQ does not share any user-level data with third-parties.
OwnerIQ has implemented reasonable security measures to protect information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Our security systems include authenticated access to internal databases, audits of procedures, and regular reviews of overall Web security.
OwnerIQ will investigate your complaint and respond to you promptly.
Amendments: OwnerIQ may modify or amend this policy from time to time. If we make any material changes, as determined by OwnerIQ, in the way in which information is collected, used or transferred, we will notify you of these changes on our site and provide a link to the new privacy statement. If you object to any of the changes, you may opt out as referenced above.
Effective Date of this policy: December 6, 2010.
