Site Visitorship Data
- Bark City uses aggregated site visitorship data to improve the content and services offered to site visitors. All reports cite visitorship data on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means that no personally identifiable information is associated with it. This data may include:
- The number of people who visit our site
- The pages they visit
- The amount of time they stay on our site
- The domain name of the site where visitors are connecting from (google.com for example)
- The aggregate demographics (age/sex/interests) of our visitors
Google may use this data to provide search results and advertisements more likely to be of interest to viewers with similar, general characteristics. Bark City may, in conjunction with the Remarketing and Similar Audiences features of Google, use this data to advertise to previous visitors to our website or audiences with similar aggregate characteristics to visitors to our website.
This site uses Google Adwords, Google Remarketing with AdSense, and Demographics and Interests Reporting. This allows us to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to users who have visited the barkcitynh.com site previously. This advertising could appear on a Google search engine results page (SERP) or another website in the Google Display Network.
Vendors such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as Google advertising cookies) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en
Users may opt out of internet-based online advertising by visiting: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns.
If visitors submit credit card information in an on-line form, our company uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology to protect the information they submit. This technology protects visitors from having their information intercepted by anyone other than our company while it is being transmitted. Our company works hard to ensure that our systems are secure and that they meet industry standards. Where appropriate, we employ firewalls, encryption technology, user authentication systems (e.g., usernames and passwords) and access control mechanisms to control access to systems and data.
