As you browse the internet, you may see advertisements on the web pages you visit. Shopper’s Voice works with partner companies and service providers to enable the delivery of relevant ads to the right consumers, while protecting consumer privacy and offering choices about participating in such activities. This is called Online Targeted Advertising and is based on your survey responses, perceived interests and demographic information. Targeted advertising does not result in you seeing more ads, rather the ads you see will be more relevant to you.
Shopper’s Voice assists our partner companies in displaying targeted ads that are more relevant to you. You may receive an ad from a partner company because the survey information you provide seems to match the ad's target audience. Shopper’s Voice also assists our partner companies with Email Retargeting, a method of re-engaging consumers with web display ads who previously opened an email.
- We work with our partner companies to deliver ads to you as a result of the information you provide in completing the survey and based on your perceived interests. To do so, Shopper’s Voice will work with our partner companies and service providers to match your name, address and/or email address, to cookies on your browser, and display online ads to you about goods and services that you will likely find of interest.
- Shopper’s Voice or our service providers may place a web beacon within an email message that is sent from Shopper’s Voice on behalf of our partner companies. Once this email is opened, a cookie is placed on your browser and this cookie enables Shopper’s Voice or our partner companies to later display an ad to you if you have opened the email.
As part of the targeted ads you may receive, we partner with companies to evaluate your interactions with our web based and email advertisements to measure the effectiveness of the advertising. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be collected and shared with these partners, including what ad you received and when, and whether you clicked on the ad.
You may opt–out of online targeted advertising from Shopper’s Voice and our partners by clicking on the Advertising Option Icon in the ads you receive. The Icon will appear as and may be accompanied by text such as "AdChoices". It will be located around the perimeter of the ad. Simply click on this Icon and proceed to the opt-out link or preference setting link. Once directed to the opt-out page or preference setting page, you may immediately opt-out of future targeted advertising from Shopper’s Voice and our partners. If you have any questions concerning this opt-out, you can always contact us at contactus@Shoppers-Voice.com.
To facilitate an opt-out, an opt-out cookie will automatically be placed on your computer to block further targeted advertising. If you ever delete this opt-out cookie, clear your cookies, utilize a new browser or purchase a new computer, your opt-out preference will not be maintained. You will need to again opt-out through the Icon in the ad. It is only when the opt-out cookie is present and can be read on your browser that we can know you decided not to participate in targeted advertising.
