INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

On our website, we may collect information about your online activities for use in providing you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. We also may obtain information for this purpose from third-party websites on which our ads are served. This section of our Privacy Policy provides details and explains how to exercise your choices.

You may see certain ads on other websites because we engage third-party ad buying networks (such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). Through such buying networks, we can target our advertising to users. We can track your online activities over time automatically including through the use of third-party cookies, cookies, web server logs and pixels. The networks use this information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your browsing history and interests.

ONLINE TRACKING

When you use www.maxdiamonds.com.au both we and certain third parties (for example our advertising partners and social media platforms) may collect personal information about your online activities, over time and across other websites. Certain web browsers allow you to instruct your browser to send Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals to websites you visit, informing those sites that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. When we recognize a relevant DNT signal, we aim to suppress the third-party tags that are used to recognize your computer once you navigate away from our site and which are used to present you with advertisements. Currently there is no uniform standard for DNT signal recognition, however we may update our policy as new technologies develop.

DATA TRANSFERS

We may transfer the personal information we collect within the Gemtec Group of companies.
