Anonymous Information Gathered through the Website

Agropur gathers anonymous information respecting the use of its Website. Thus, Agropur uses various technological tools to know which pages of its Website have been consulted by visitors, to determine the frequency with which hyperlinks are used and to compile statistics on visitors and their use of the Website. This information is gathered by means of an analytical platform (such as: Google Analytics), log files and cookies. This anonymous information is gathered in such a way that Agropur is unable to identify you.

Agropur may post advertisements based on areas of interest on this Website, which is owned by Agropur, as well as on the other websites it operates and on any other third-party websites, using the anonymous information gathered when you consult this Website. Advertising campaigns based on areas of interest, which are sometimes referred to as personalized or targeted advertising campaigns, are displayed based on the anonymous information gleaned from your activities on the Website and from any other websites you may have visited that posted content or advertising campaigns from Agropur.

Like other online advertising networks, Agropur uses cookies, web beacons (also known as web bugs) and other technologies (collectively, the “Cookies”). Cookies allow Agropur to determine which advertisements you see, which advertisements you click on and the other things you do when you consult the Website. This allows Agropur to offer you more useful and relevant advertising. For example, if Agropur is able to know what advertising is presented to you, it can avoid showing you the same advertising repeatedly. Agropur does not connect your activities on third-party websites to your identity when Agropur offers you advertisements based on areas of interest.

Advertisers or advertising agencies working on their behalf sometimes use various technological tools to send the advertising campaigns that appear on our Website directly to your web browser. To do so, they automatically obtain your IP address. They can also use Cookies to measure the efficiency of their advertising campaigns and to personalize advertising content. Agropur has no access to or control over these Cookies or other technological tools that third-party advertisers or websites might use.

Generally, you may choose not to receive personalized advertising campaigns from third-party advertisers and advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or that subscribe to the Canadian Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioural Advertising by visiting the opt-out page of the websites of the NAI and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA).
