WHAT ARE COOKIES?
HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM COOKIES?
WHAT ARE DYNAMIC ADS?
Dynamic Ads are ads that are personalized in real-time to the user. Unlike static ads that show the same content on every impression, Dynamic Ads enable the advertiser to display a unique creative for different users. Dynamic Ads are the only feasible way to scale up the number of creatives per campaign and to personalize them on each impression.
WHAT IS RETARGETING?
The main goal of ReTargeting Ads is to re-engage site visitors after they have left the site. Dynamic ReTargeting Ads are generated based on the actual products or offers viewed on the advertiser’s site. For example, if you’ve visited a retailer’s website and viewed a specific product, you might receive a banner ad containing that product.
HOW CAN I REMOVE MYSELF FROM BEING RETARGETED?
The Milky Way Ventures Ltd makes removing our tracking cookie easy for any user who wishes to do so. Users that don’t want to see The Milky Way ads should simply email erin @ themilkyway.ca
