Technologies similar to cookies
Technically speaking, cookies are called “HTTP cookies.” There are other technologies that can be used for similar purposes, such as HTML5 Local Storage and local shared objects (LSOs). LSOs are used by the authors of files that are read by WindowsMaximizer and the websites hosting those files. We may use HTML5 Local Storage, LSOs, and similar technologies for authenticating you, keeping track of information you have provided to us, and remembering your preferences (see bullet points above).

Web beacons and embedded scripts

Web beacons and embedded scripts are other technologies that we use in our websites, as well as in some of our emails and ads.

Web beacons (or “tags”) are bits of programming code included in web pages, emails, and ads that notify Computeroids (or the companies that help us run our business) when those web pages, emails, or ads have been viewed or clicked on.

Embedded scripts are bits of programming code included within some of our web pages that measure how you use those web pages, such as which links you click. We use this information to improve our websites, tailor our websites to your likely interests, and conduct market research. You may be able to turn off scripting functionality, such as JavaScript, within your browser (please refer to your browser’s help function). Note that if you disable scripting functionality, some WindowsMaximizer websites may not function properly.

WindowsMaximizer

WindowsMaximizer runs online ad campaigns that display ads for you based on your likely interests. We may learn your likely interests when you use our apps and websites. We also acquire information from other companies that gives us more insight about your likely interests based on your activity on non-WindowsMaximizer web pages and mobile apps. These types of ads are often called “interest-based ads” or “online behavioral advertising.” We use ad platforms to display WindowsMaximizer ads on non-WindowsMaximizer web pages and in non-WindowsMaximizer apps.

The ad platforms we hire to display these ads set their own cookies, web beacons, and other identifiers to measure the effectiveness of these ads and to understand your likely interests. We and our ad platforms learn information such as which WindowsMaximizer ads are shown to you, which ads are clicked on, and on which web page or in which app they were displayed.

The ad platforms we hire may also use technology that helps them identify devices and browsers that are being used by the same person. We may use these ad platforms to display ads to you on non-WindowsMaximizer websites or apps, which are tailored to you based on your use of our websites and apps on your various devices and browsers.

If you prefer that we not deliver ads to you in non-WindowsMaximizer apps based on how you use WindowsMaximizer apps and websites, please set the preference on your mobile device to limit ad tracking.

Please note that if you do set your preferences as described above, you may still see WindowsMaximizer ads on other companies’ websites or apps, but they will not be based on your activity on our websites and apps.

WindowsMaximizer complies with the DAA’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising and related DAA guidance. For more general information about interest-based ads and your choices, please see:

WindowsMaximizer also runs other kinds of online ad campaigns on social networking websites and other non-WindowsMaximizer websites and apps. Some of these ads may be based on information we have about users (for example, customers who have an outdated version of WindowsMaximizer may see an ad for the latest version). These ads may also be based on information the user provided to the third-party website or app. If WindowsMaximizer provides information to a website or app for these advertising purposes, the information may only be used to display the WindowsMaximizer ad Please see the privacy policy of the website or app where a WindowsMaximizer ad is shown for more information about its privacy practices and privacy choices it may offer.
