Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format our customers can read, and they tell us whether the email has been opened.  We may use this information to reduce or eliminate the number or type of messages sent to our customers.  Web beacons are small graphic images or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email that count visitors to the Website, monitor how users navigate the Website, count how many emails that were sent are actually opened or count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.  Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and we or our third party service providers may receive such device information if you access the Website through mobile devises  Certain features of our Website may require collection of mobile phone numbers, and we may associate that phone number to mobile device identification information.  An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Website, such as the links you click on.  The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Computer from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Website and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

In some of our email messages, we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on our Website.  When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our Website.  We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.  If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

 

Genetix, LLC and its partners use cookies and other technologies in mobile advertising services to control the number of times you see a given ad, deliver ads that relate to your interests, and measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns.  If you do not want to receive ads with this level of relevance on your mobile device, you can opt out by accessing the following link on your device: support@dnaprojectconsulting.com.  If you opt out, you will continue to receive the same number of mobile ads, but they may be less relevant because they will not be based on your interests.  You may still see ads related to the content on a web page or in an application or based on other non-personal information.  This opt-out applies only to Genetix, LLC advertising services and does not affect interest-based advertising from other advertising networks.
