INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

Exotic Stone works with advertising networks and publishers to serve targeted display ads for Exotic Stone products and services on third-party websites. Third parties may use cookies or web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date) about users’ interactions with products and services on exoticstone.ca to help determine which ads are likely to be most interesting to you. This information also helps Exotic Stone monitor and improve our products and services. To learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices.

Exotic Stone also uses Facebook Custom Audiences to deliver targeted ads to Exotic Stone users, who are also Facebook users. This requires Exotic Stone to provide a minimal amount of information (e.g., name and email address) to Facebook so that it can determine which users are also Facebook users. This information is “hashed” before it is provided to Facebook, is deleted once the matching process is complete, and is not used for any other purpose by Facebook or third-party. You can opt-out of this process by clicking on the icon on the top right corner of the ads from Exotic Stone that you see on Facebook. To learn more about advertising on Facebook generally and how to control your preferences, visit https://www.facebook.com/about/ads.
