Advertising that is customized based on predictions generated over time from your visits across different websites, devices, and mobile applications is sometimes called “online behavioral” or “interest-based” advertising. We may partner with advertising networks, which are companies that deliver targeted advertisements to Consumers and generate statistics and metrics related to the delivery of interest-based advertisements.

This data collection takes place both on the Ecobot Products and on third-party’s websites and mobile applications. This process allows Ecobot and third parties to deliver targeted advertising, enhance marketing programs, and help track the effectiveness of such efforts. Our advertising networks also may use this information for determining or predicting the characteristics and preferences of their respective advertising audiences and measuring the effectiveness of their advertising in accordance with their privacy policies.
    2. We do not provide information that is directly associated with a specific person (such as name and address) to an advertising network when you interact with or view a customized advertisement.

You may see an icon in or around third-party advertisements on the Ecobot Products that use interest-based advertising programs and on pages where data is collected and used for online interest-based advertising. Clicking on this icon will provide additional information about the companies and data practices that were used to deliver the ad.
