Advontemedia primarily uses information for Google Analytics to determine the best return on our marketing efforts to reach publishers we feel may be interested in our services and to provide chat assistance during a website visit. We use Google to show marketing (usually display ads) to visitors who we want to remember the great value we provide magazine publishers and may target users across multiple devices using Google’s remarketing to visitor audience capabilities.

When you submit data to through a form such as those found on contact pages or comment forms cookies may be set to identify initial queries and pages visited on our site. We use Google Adwords conversion tracking to measure conversion results for information requests.

This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.

We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways. For these to work the following social media sites including; Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, will set cookies through our site which may be used to enhance your profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.  We will probably have to add Instagram but we have held off since it’s our kids favorite social app and we are not targeting kids to become our customers.  Although, they certainly know the value of digital content sources and we never see them with print magazines anymore so perhaps we need to be ready for these young publisher clients.

Information Recipients
Who has access to the information collected?
Ourselves and/or our entities acting as our agents or entities for which we are acting as an agent.  We basically use our marketing and CRM systems like a magazine publisher does to keep subscribers engaged and seek new subscribers.  The days of having a salesman and a briefcase making cold calls are officially over.

Information Retention
How long is this information retained?
We do not limit the retention of analytics data. Typically cookies set for remarketing are set for no longer than 60-90 days.  And thus far, we purge just about the entire marketing file ever 3 years and start fresh with only people we have had previous communication.

Information we collect will not be sold to third party vendors. That’s just not our business model.
