Targeted Advertising

We track and analyze both individualized usage and aggregated statistical information related to your use of our Sites.

These third parties use cookies and similar tracking technologies to collect and use certain information about your online activities, either on our Sites or other third-party sites to measure and track the effectiveness of advertisements and our online marketing activities (for example, by collecting data on how many times you click on one of our advertisements). This information may be used alone or in combination with information about you we obtain from other sources (like our data partners), your contact details and Plant.Digital transaction history to infer your interests and deliver you targeted advertisements and marketing that are more tailored to you based on your browsing activities and inferred interests (“Interest-Based Advertising”).
