DISPLAY ADS

The Website uses Google AdSense to manage all third-party advertising on the Website. Google AdSense serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use cookies. Google AdSense may collect IP addresses and location to serve personalized ads.  

WEB BEACONS

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. Dawn Rochelle uses MailChimp forms that employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs). Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users.  In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails.

We use clear gifs or pixels in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients and which website links have been clicked.  This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of communications and our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our customers’ Personal Information.

Additional information on consumer tracking can be found on the FTC site by clicking here.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
