Online tracking and interest-based advertising
You may see certain ads on other websites because we engage third-party ad services (e.g., Facebook, Google Ads, LinkedIn Ads). Through such ad services, we can retarget our messaging to users of our website on other webpages and applications through interest-based and contextual means. These services track your online activities over time and across multiple websites by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of third-party cookies, web server logs and web beacons. The ad services use this information to show you ads that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information our ad services may collect on our behalf includes data about your visits to websites that serve Grandview ads, such as the pages or ads you view and the actions you take on the websites. This data collection takes place both on our website and on third-party websites that participate in these ad services. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
