Dogsploot may also use e-mail tracking technologies to monitor the success of e-mail campaigns it operates (for example, recording how many e-mails in a campaign were opened). If you do not want us to track emails we send you, some email services let you change your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images and exercising these rights should effectively disable our email tracking. In addition, you may also unsubscribe from our marketing emails as described in those emails.
Mobile Advertising ID Controls
The iOS and Android operating systems provide options to limit tracking and/or reset device advertising IDs. Please consult the settings on your device to exercise this choice.

To learn more about “Do Not Track”, please visit “All About Do Not Track”.
In addition to “Do Not Track”, there are many ways that web browser signals and similar mechanisms can indicate your tracking choices, and we may not be aware of nor honor every mechanism.
California “Do Not Sell My Info”
The California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”) requires us to tell you if we have sold your personal information to third parties in the past 12 months and how to opt-out of future sales. Because the CCPA considers IP address, cookie IDs, and mobile IDs “personal information” and defines “sale” to include simply making data available to third parties, we are providing this notice to give you additional information. We let advertising providers collect IP addresses, cookie IDs, mobile IDs through our sites and apps when you use our online services, and their use of that information when providing us services may constitute a sale of personal data under the CCPA. We do not “sell” any other types of personal information.
You can opt-out from any sharing of your personal information with third parties if that sharing constitutes a “sale” of that data under the CCPA. You can opt out of this type of information sharing by opting out of third-party Advertising cookies as noted above.
Note that although we will not “sell” your personal information after you opt-out of Advertising cookies, we will continue to share some personal information with our partners (acting as our service providers) to help us perform advertising-related functions such as measuring the effectiveness of our ads, managing how many times you see an ad, managing and reporting on ad performance, providing aggregate statistics and analytics, and/or reducing ad fraud. Further, updating your cookie preferences will not necessarily opt you out of the use of previously collected personal information by these cookies or stop all interest-based advertising. Please note that your cookie preferences are domain- and browser-specific. This means that if you visit dogsploot domains, or replace or upgrade your browser, use another browser (or device), clear your browser’s cookies, or set your browser to refuse third-party cookies, you may need to reset your opt-out preferences.
Other Tracking Technologies
In addition to cookies, we may use web beacons, pixel tags, and other tracking technologies on the Site to help customize the Site and improve your experience. A “web beacon” or “pixel tag” is a tiny object or image embedded in a web page or email. They are used to track the number of users who have visited particular pages and viewed emails and acquire other statistical data. They collect only a limited set of data, such as a cookie number, time and date of a page or email view, and a description of the page or email on which they reside. Web beacons and pixel tags cannot be declined. However, you can limit their use by controlling the cookies that interact with them.
