The Homeschool Lifeline website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Homeschool Lifeline pages, or register with Homeschool Lifeline site or services, a cookie helps Homeschool Lifeline to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Homeschool Lifeline website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Homeschool Lifeline features that you customized.
Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits.
Keep track of advertisements.
Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Homeschool Lifeline services or websites you visit.
We use third-party cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies including Google AdWords Remarketing and the Facebook Pixel within our pages in order to remarket our content and/or products when past visitors of our website visit other websites that also utilize Google, Facebook, or other advertising technologies used by Homeschool Lifeline. These technologies allow us to custom-tailor our marketing and advertising to show you relevant content or special offers based on your behavior on our website, including particular pages you viewed on our website or actions that you did or didn’t take on our website. These third-party vendors do this by placing a cookie on your computer or device that you used to access our website. These vendors may also deliver ads that may place additional cookies or track user behavior on their own. When Google, Facebook, or any other third-party remarketing vendor that we use detects this cookie within your web browser, it essentially tells them “This individual did x, y, or z on our website, therefore, display this specific ad for them.” This is why when you view a product in an online store such as ours, you may sometimes see that product advertised to you on other websites.
To opt out of remarketing through the vendors we use, please see the following information.
To opt out of Google’s use of advertising or other cookies or to change your advertising preferences with Google ads, you can go to Google’s Ads Settings.
To change your settings or opt out of Google Ads through DoubleClick, you can go to DoubleClick’s opt-out page or the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.
To change your Facebook ad settings or opt out of Facebook ads related to the Facebook pixel or being included in custom audiences based on your browser’s interaction with the Facebook pixel, go to https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/.
To opt out of other vendors not listed in this section (and not necessarily utilized by Homeschool Lifeline), you can do so by going to http://www.aboutads.info/choices.
