4. Online analytics and tailored advertising
We may use third-party web analytics services on our Site, such as those offered by Google Analytics. Such services use technology to help analyze how people use the Site, such as by noting any website from which you arrive. The information (including your IP address) collected by this technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use it to analyze your use of the Site. We also may use such services for advertising purposes, as set forth below. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information in the above-described manner, the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on may be installed by clicking here.
When you are using the Site, Property Walk may serve you with ads based on such factors as the content of the page(s) you are visiting, information provided by you such as your age or gender, the content of your searches and any demographic data, content or other information you provide. These ads may be based on either your current activities or your activities over time, and may be specifically tailored to your interests.
To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or to customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. To the extent that advertising technology is integrated into the Site, you may still receive advertisements even if you opt out of tailored advertising. In that case, ads may appear but will not be tailored. Note that we do not control any of the above opt-out links and have no responsibility for your decisions regarding the use of these mechanisms or their continued availability or reliability.
When using a mobile application, you may from time to time receive tailored in-application advertisements. Each operating system, iOS for Apple phones, Android for Android devices and Windows for Microsoft devices has its own instructions for preventing the delivery of tailored in-application advertising. You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems in order to opt-out of tailored in-application advertisements. For any other devices and/or operating systems, please check the privacy settings for the applicable device or contact the platform operator. Note that Property Walk may use a third-party vendor to deliver advertisements on mobile applications or for mobile application analytics.
