We use various tracking technologies.

We collect personal information about users over time and across different websites when you use this website or service. We also have third parties that collect personal information this way. To do this, we use several tracking tools. Our vendors may also use these tools. In this policy “we” and “us” refers to both Real Chemistry and our vendors. These tools may include browser cookies. We may also use web beacons, flash cookies, and similar technologies.

Our Data Warehouse also houses media performance information which we collect through various websites as part of rendering services to our clients. For example, we may collect metrics on the performance of an advertising campaign done through Facebook, which will be collected through tracking tools provided via the Facebook platform.

We use tracking technologies for a variety of reasons.

We use tracking tools, including cookies, on our websites. Third parties also use cookies on our sites. Cookies are small files that download when you access certain websites. To learn more, visit here or here. These pages also explain how you can manage and delete cookies.
