We use Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise TOPBOTS across the Internet, in particular on the Google Display Network. AdWords remarketing will display ads to you based on what parts of the TOPBOTS website you have viewed by placing a cookie on your web browser. THIS COOKIE DOES NOT IN ANYWAY IDENTIFY YOU OR GIVE ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER OR MOBILE DEVICE. The cookie is used to indicate to other websites that “This person visited a particular page, so show them ads relating to that page.” Google AdWords Remarketing allows us to tailor our marketing to better suit your needs and only display ads that are relevant to you.

If you do not wish to see ads from TOPBOTS you can opt out in several ways:
1. Opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google’s Ads Settings. https://adssettings.google.com/u/0/authenticated
2. Opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page. http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#!/

Custom Audience (Facebook). We may participate in Facebook.com’s Custom Audience program which enables us to display personalized ads to persons on our email lists when they visit Facebook.com.

As described in the “Advertising & Remarketing” Section above, we provide your email address to Facebook to enable Facebook to determine if you are a registered account holder with Facebook for our remarketing purposes.

Social Plugins on Our Site

We may use social plugins on our Site and may include icons that allow you to interact with third party social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

Notice to Users Outside of the United States

Our computer systems and third party hosting provider systems are currently based in the United States and may be located in other countries, so your personal data will be processed by us in the U.S. and other countries where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.

Your right to access your personally identifiable information may be restricted in exceptional circumstances, including, but not limited to, when the burden or expense of providing this access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or when the rights of persons other than you would be violated by the provision of such access. If we determine that your access should be restricted in a particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of our determination and respond to any inquiries you may have.
