1. Information Collected About You
The information NTVB Custom Media gathers through the Website falls into two categories: (1) information users voluntarily supply when using the Website, and (2) information collected automatically through users’ use of the Website. Third-party providers and advertisers linked to or displayed on the Website may also gather information through processes that NTVB Custom Media does not control. Such information is subject to those third parties’ privacy policies. The Website also may participate in third-party advertising networks or similar services that collect information about your computer or device and your online and mobile activity to provide the interest-based advertising that you see on the Website and other third-party sites, mobile apps and marketing channels in their networks as well as first-party networks to provide interest-based advertising via the Website.
1.1 Information You Provide To Us
NTVB Custom Media may collect information about you through your use of the Website, such as your name, postal address, email address, user name, phone number, mobile phone number. You may provide information to NTVB Custom Media when you:
- Enter registration information on the Website; and/or
- Enter a sweepstakes or contest.
1.2 Information Collected Automatically When You Use the Website
As you use the Website, NTVB Custom Media and third parties may use automatic data collection technologies to collect data about your equipment and browsing, including information about:
- Your use of the Website, including traffic data, location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use within the Website;
- Your online activities over time;
- Your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, which can sometimes be used to locate your general geographic area, operating system and browser type;
- Your device type, screen size, browser type, language and other settings, memory capacity, plug-ins, internet domain, TCP configuration parameters, operating system, carrier code, time zone and the names, versions and package IDs of software installed on your device;
- The sites you visited before and after you visited the Website;
- Search terms you enter using the Website or on a referral site;
- Unique identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers, that can identify the physical location of devices in accordance with applicable law;

1.2.1 Tracking Technologies
NTVB Custom Media and our service providers or other third parties acting on our behalf or with our permission, may use embedded scripts, cookies, web beacons, device identifiers and other tracking technologies to operate, analyze and improve our Website and tailor content and advertising to user interests. Third-party companies that provide some of the tools and features accessible through our Website and advertisers and other companies involved in the delivery of advertisements you see on our Website and other websites also may use tracking technologies to collect information about your use of our Website. A “cookie” is a small text file (often containing a unique identifier) that helps us to make your use of our Website more enjoyable and meaningful to you. Cookies are accessed and recorded by the websites you visit, and by the companies that deliver the advertisements you see on our Website, so they can recognize the same browser navigating online. Cookies can also help you avoid having to log in every time you come back to use the Website. They also allow us to tailor a Website, application or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. There are a couple different types of cookies. A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all of your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever. A “persistent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until they either: a) expire; b) are overwritten with newer cookies; or c) you manually remove them. Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies. This may, however, prevent you from having access to some site functions or features. Your browser can also notify you when a cookie is set. (Check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) Please be aware that certain browsers cannot block or delete so-called “Flash” cookies, which use a feature of the Adobe Flash video player to store information on your computer. For information about how to delete Flash cookies, please visit the Adobe website here. The Website may use spotlight ads/web beacons/GIF/pixel tags, which are site instrumentation tools that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or not; and if so, how many times. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a webpage, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon, which is a small string of code that embeds a small graphic image (usually invisible) on a web page or in an email or advertisement. When your browser downloads a web beacon, the server that sends the corresponding image to your browser can recognize and store certain types of information such as cookies previously set, the time and date that you viewed the page embedded with the beacon and a description of that page.
1.2.2 Mobile Device IDs and Location-Based Information
When you use a mobile device to access the Website, NTVB Custom Media may collect different types of information about your location, including general information (e.g., IP address, zip code) and more specific information (e.g., GPS-based location information). NTVB Custom Media may use that information to customize the Website with location-based information, advertising, and features. For example, if your IP address indicates an origin in Milwaukee, the Website may be customized with Milwaukee-specific information and advertisements. The ads in our apps may be targeted to you based on your current GPS location, or they may be targeted to you based on your zip code or device’s IP address. In order to do this, your location information may be shared with our agents, vendors or advertisers. If you access the Website through a mobile device and you do not want your device automatically to provide us with location-tracking information, you can disable the GPS or other location-tracking functions on your device, provided your device allows you to do this. See your device manufacturer’s instructions for further details. We may still ask for a zip code or other location information.

These service providers may collect data about how you interact with those messages (including information about whether and when you opened a particular message or clicked on a link within a message and the device you used to do so) and analyze it in conjunction with similar information they collect when you respond to emails they send on behalf of their other clients who are not affiliated with NTVB Custom Media.
