When you visit or interact with ERICREBELO.COM (“ERIC REBELO”, “we”, or “us”) we or our authorized service providers may use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies for storing information to help provide you with a good experience when you browse our Sites and also allow us to improve our Sites. Here is information to help you understand these technologies better:

1. What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies?

We use technologies that are essentially small data files placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone or other devices (referred to collectively as a “Device”) that allow us to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our Sites and the ERIC REBELO Services.

2. What types of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies do we use?

Our use of such technologies fall into the following general categories:

  • Strictly necessary – these are cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies that are required for the operation of our Sites. They include, for example, technologies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Sites, use a shopping cart, or make use of e-billing services.

  • Analytical/performance. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to our Sites and to see how visitors move around our Sites. This helps us to improve the way our Sites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

  • Functionality. These are used to recognize you when you return to our Sites, which enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

  • Advertising or targeting-related. These technologies record your visit to the Sites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Sites and the advertising displayed on them more relevant to your interests. We may repurpose or retarget the information we gather about you, We may also share this information with our advertisers, lead buyers, and with third parties for advertising and retargeting purposes.

You can find more information about the individual cookies, web beacons and similar technologies and the purposes for which we use them below. This list is not exhaustive, but it is intended to illustrate the primary reasons for certain types of cookies set by ERIC REBELO or third parties on our Sites.

  • Pixels. We use pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels are provided by our ad management partners, including Facebook Ads and Google Ads, or other advertising networks and advertisers. These files enable our ad management partner to recognize a unique cookie on your Internet browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our Sites. The information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. For more information about Google Ads, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, go to http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/ or you may also opt out by clicking here.

  • Framing. The Sites may utilize framing and masking techniques to make it appear that the user is still a Site when the user is actually on a third party website. We also have co-branding relationships with certain partners. In these relationships, you will find our service platform on our partner’s page. In this situation, both parties are collecting your data and both privacy policies govern the data collected. We will not share your data with our partner or other third parties without your consent in these and other relationships, nor do our partners share your data with us without your consent. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Sites and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information from you.

  • Web beacons. We use web beacons from time to time. A web beacon is a string of code that provides a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data, or determining how many times a specific web page has been viewed. Web beacons enable us to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits a Site, and to learn which banner ads bring users to each Site. For example, when a user visits a web page, the code for the page may include instructions to go to another server to gather a single pixel graphic image. Web beacons are not placed on a user’s computer. Such web beacons may be placed on our Sites by our third party advertising companies to help manage and optimize any online advertising, and by third party data companies to share our users’ behavior profile with third parties. To opt out of targeted advertising delivered by Network Advertising Initiative members, click here: http://www.networkadvertising.com/consumer/opt_out.asp

  • Browser and Flash Cookies. We may use browser and Flash cookies, local Storage, or other similar technologies from time to time on the Sites. A “browser” or “HTTP” cookie is a unique text file that may be used for data analysis, and enables a web site to tailor information presented to a user based on a user’s browsing program. We may use browser cookies to personalize a user’s pages at a Site or Sites, to remember a user when the user registers for products or services, for fraud prevention, or to track visits to a Site or across our Sites. We also may use Flash cookies, to store your preferences or display content based upon what you view on our Sites to personalize your visit. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our Sites or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity may also use Flash cookies to collect and store information. Flash cookies are different from “browser” cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies, including how to delete Flash cookies, click here for additional information: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html#117118. See Sections 3 and 4 below for more on how to disable cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies.

  • Ads. The ads appearing on the Sites may be delivered to visitors by third parties, such as Google, Facebook, and Instagram. The third party advertising technology that we use on the Sites uses information derived from a user’s visits to the Sites to target advertising within the Sites. In addition, our advertisers may use other third party advertising technology to target advertising on the Sites. In the course of serving advertisements to the Sites, our partners may place or recognize a unique cookie on a user’s browser. Information about users’ visits to the Sites, such as the number of times users have viewed an ad (but not users’ names or addresses), are used to serve ads to visitors. The use of cookies enables our partners to serve ads to users based on such user’s visit to our Sites and other sites on the Internet. As with other cookies, and consistent with our policy on cookies stated above, the user may block or delete such cookies from the user’s drive or memory. For more information about Google, Google’s use of cookies, and how to “opt out” of Google’s email/information lists, please click see here and here. As noted in the Web Beacon discussion above, users also can opt-out of receiving these types of targeted network advertisements from many advertising networks as detailed below. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

3. How to manage cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies on our Sites?

There are a number of ways you can manage what Analytical/performance, Functionality and Advertising/targeting-related cookies are set on your Device. Strictly necessary cookies, however, cannot be disabled. You may also be required to re-enter your password more frequently during your browsing session. The first time you visit any of our Sites you will see an overlay which explains that by continuing to browse the relevant Site or clicking “I Agree” you are deemed to give your consent to use these cookies as described in this Privacy Policy.

4. Disabling cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies.

  • Cookies and opt-out choices statement. On some of our Sites you can set your preferences on how we, and third parties, use cookies on your Device. Please see our [Cookies and opt-out choices statement] at the bottom of every screen of our Site.

  • Browser Settings. You can disable and/or delete all types of cookies, web beacons or similar technologies if permitted by your browser, installed application or Device. These technologies are generally easy to disable and/or delete but how you do so varies from browser to browser. The “help” function within your browser should tell you how to do it. Please note if you decline cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies, you may not be able to take advantage of certain Site features, services, applications, or tools. The following links also provide information on how to modify the cookies settings on some popular browsers:

5. Disabling most targeting or behavior advertising cookies.

If you would like to disable advertising cookies, which remember your browsing habits and display relevant advertising when you use our ERIC REBELO Services, you can visit http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices. If you choose to turn off these cookies you will still see advertising on the Internet but it may not be tailored to your interests. It does not mean that you won’t be served any advertisements while you are online. Although many companies involved in using advertising cookies and serving online behavioral advertising appear at the above links, not all do. Therefore, even if you choose to turn off cookies used by all of the companies listed, you may still receive some advertising cookies and some tailored advertisements from other companies.

Additional opt-out choices for analytics and marketing networks

Several of the advertising networks and service providers that we use to analyze activities on our sites also offer opt-out mechanisms as an alternative to managing the placement of cookies by these services through your browser settings as discussed above: Google Analytics: If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics, Google has developed a tool that works with major internet browsers to permit you to opt-out. For more information and install their opt-out tool, please click here: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/partner-sites/ and https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout Google Advertising: To opt-out of or manage your targeted third-party advertising preferences with Google, please click here: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/ ComScore: To opt-out of comScore’s universal data collection, please click here: http://www.scorecardresearch.com/preferences.aspx National Advertising Initiative: To opt-out of targeted third party advertising by Network Advertising Initiative members, please click here: http://www.networkadvertising.com/choices/ In addition, some of our third party advertising partners display an “ad choices” icon with the advertisement on our site. If you see this icon with an advertisement, you can click on it to find out more information about the ad and your ad choices.

Additional opt-out choices for social media

Integration of social media links to our sites may enable tracking by these providers, who provide their own opt-out and data control mechanisms:

Social Network Login

If you chose to use third-party social networking sites, such as Facebook or Twitter, to log into one of our sites that offers that login feature, we may collect information, such as your basic profile information, gender, age, interests, and other demographic and geographical information, from the social networking site you use to interact with our site. If you do not want to share information from your social networking account with us, you can either decline to use these features or check your social networking site’s current privacy setting options to see what options they provide for limiting disclosures when you use login sharing features.

ERIC REBELO Newsletters and Direct Marketing Communications

This Cookie Policy explains how ERIC REBELO (“ERIC REBELO“, “we“, “us“, and “ours“) use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at ERICREBELO.COM, (“Websites“).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, ERIC REBELO) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Our Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided in the cookie table above.

You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
