What are cookies and what do we use them for?

We collect Device Identifiable Information and other Non-Personal Information through technologies such as "cookies" and "pixel tags" (which are also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels). A "cookie" is a piece of alphanumeric data stored on your hard drive when you visit our website that enables us to improve your access to our Website and Services and to identify repeat visitors to our Services. "Pixel tags" are small graphic images (usually invisible) that can be embedded in content and ads on a webpage that track usage of our Website and effectiveness of communication. These pixel tags can then be used to recognize our cookies and to monitor certain user interactions with a website. For the purposes of this policy, the term "Website" shall include www.celmatix.com, www.fertilityresearch.com, www.myfertilome.com, www.wesaythefword.com, www.saythefword.com, myfertilitycompass.io, and their subdomains, and the online services that we operate, including but not limited to Polaris-hosted services, and any and all other Celmatix-hosted websites (collectively, the "Services").

We use the non-personally identifiable information collected by cookies and pixel tags, such as your browser version, IP address, referring domains, pages visited, your device and application IDs, the nature of your use of the Services, and other cookie information, to create a profile of your activity to improve the delivery of our Services and to develop analytics and aggregated data that allow us and our partners to utilize our Services and reach out to you via our Services or otherwise. We do not share your profile with third parties other than as set forth in this Privacy Policy or in any Policy or Terms of Use for any of the Services that may be in effect from time to time.

By using our Websites and Services, you indicate your consent for Celmatix to send cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our Services; you may turn off cookies in your browser though, however, in doing so, some or all of our Service features may not work.

This cookie policy does not apply to the websites and services of companies that Celmatix does not operate, or to individuals that Celmatix does not employ. We may update this policy at any time by posting a new policy on our Services. Your access and use of the Services is subject to this policy and to any separate Terms of Use for any of the Services that may be in effect from time to time.

We may use third-party tracking services that use cookies and possibly other techniques to track non-personal information about visitors to the Websites and Services in the aggregate. These third-party tracking services capture usage and volume statistics as well as geographical location data to compile usage reports and maps for optimization and troubleshooting purposes. We use CrazyEgg (CrazyEgg’s privacy policy can be accessed by clicking here), Google Analytics (information on how Google Analytics uses your information can be accessed by clicking here) and Mixpanel to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed in this policy. You may opt out of data collection by CrazyEgg through https://www.crazyegg.com/opt-out. You may opt out of data collection by Google Analytics through https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. You may opt out of data collection by Mixpanel through https://mixpanel.com/optout.

Opting out

You may opt out from the collection and use of data through your mobile device by using the opt-out features of your device or through the settings function on your mobile browser or device. These are typically located in the settings menu on your device.

You can opt out of data collection by of Google Analytics, Mixpanel, and CrazyEgg as described above.

For more information, you may review the Federal Trade Commission’s guide to opting out of online tracking for computers and mobile devices here. If you chose to block cookies, certain features of a website may not be available or operate as desired. The Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") also offer opt-out tools to opt out of the collection of data online and the display of ads for targeted advertising. More information about the DAA’s AdChoices program and its opt-out tool are available here. You may access the NAI’s opt-out tool here.

Opting out does not prevent you from seeing ads; it simply means that we will no longer receive ads based on your historical viewing interests, personal characteristics, consumer segments, or other info from particular entities.
