Some of our clients provide Ark Marketing and its affiliates with personally identifiable information about their customers so we can perform various services such as online campaign analysis. In addition, as part of our services, we may collect information about user interaction with client websites and provide that information along with our analysis to the client. All of this information belongs to the client and, as their customer, you should review the privacy policies of the sites you visit. Ark Marketing and its affiliates make no other use of this personally identifiable information.
EMAIL SERVICE ON BEHALF OF ARK MARKETING OR AFFILIATE CLIENTS
When we conduct an e-mail campaign for our clients, we generally use e-mail service providers. Ark Marketing or its affiliates may use cookie and web beacon technology to track the campaign’s effectiveness. Generally, we do not have access to the e-mail addresses or any personally identifiable information and do not associate cookie data with any person. If we handle the e-mail addresses ourselves in conjunction with an online campaign, we do not use third-party technology for analysis of the campaign’s effectiveness, but rather rely on the e-mail service provider or the client’s own cookie or web beacon technology to do so. This ensures that no personally identifiable information of our clients’ customers is associated with third-party cookies for any purpose.
