ADVERTISING, MARKETING, AND COMMUNICATION PREFERENCES
XTEND Design advertises in several ways. Some of them use personal data, others do not. We may purchase ad space in the real world and on online platforms, so some of the ads you see may not be specifically targeted to you. Some search engines and social media platforms may also match ads based on their likelihood to ads that have appeared to you before. This is governed by the privacy policies of these services.
Based on your previous personal information, we may anticipate content and good services that you may like.
We also work with partners to try to increase the reach of our ads, which is why we use analytics and retargeting. We use tracking data to provide relevant online advertising, including on websites and social media.
Tracking data (cookies) help us provide advertising on websites and social networks, which we believe is most relevant for you and potential new customers of XTEND Design. Cookies used for this purpose are often placed on our websites by specialised organisations – which is also why you may see content from our websites again after you visit the XTEND Design website. This is called retargeting. Cookies can also tell us if you’ve seen a particular ad and how long it has passed since it was viewed. This is useful because it means we can monitor the effectiveness of our ads and control how many times our ads can appear to people. Cookies also help us determine if you’ve opened a marketing email because we don’t want to send you things you haven’t read.
Almost all advertising-related cookies are part of third-party online advertising networks. To learn how you can control which ads appear to you online, check out the opt-out programs established by the European Alliance for Interactive Digital Advertising and the Alliance for Digital Advertising (United States). We do not control cookies set by ad networks.
If you’d like to opt out of Google ad retargeting, you can set preferences for the way Google displays your ad using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can sign out on the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser.
