6. How We Respond to ‘Do Not Track’ Signals
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
To make our Sites and services work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, shopping cart, or other preferences) over a period of time, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Personalized Advertising. We may also use targeted advertising cookies on our Sites, to deliver tailored advertising on our Sites and other websites that you may visit. You can learn more about how to control advertising cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the DAA’s Consumer Opt-Out link for browsers, or the DAA’s opt-out link for mobile devices. Please note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications and may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests.
8. Privacy Rights
Marketing Opt-Outs. At any time, you may ask to unsubscribe or opt out from our marketing communications. Please email the unsubscribe or opt out request to the Contact Information below and include the applicable Ateliere service, your name, email address, and request to unsubscribe or opt out. Aggregated information that may have been collected about you or your activities will remain but will no longer be linked to your Personal Data or identifiable with you.
Third Party Marketing. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our customers to request information regarding the disclosure of their Personal Data to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
