Personal Information is required to use certain Product features, for example, to create online accounts, purchase the Product, contact us via email or phone, request a demo via our Request Demo form (where we may retain the content of your message and our response), receive or request data from us (e.g., newsletters), and respond to communications from us.

To opt-out of other communications (e.g., postal marketing and telemarketing), please contact us as set forth below. Opting out of marketing communications does not opt you out of non-marketing communications, such as emails about your account or transactions.

The processing of any information provided in such a business context is governed by the contracts between that business and Anthill.

A cookie is a small text file that our Site saves onto your computer or device when you use the Site that provides us certain information about your activities. Cookies allow the Site to remember your actions and preferences and recognize you or your browser. Web beacons / pixel tags are small graphics on a webpage that monitor your activity when viewing a webpage.

• provide personalized experiences;
• tailor our interactions with you;
• help with our marketing efforts;
• provide us with valuable data and statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our Site and to help us improve our Site; and
• help us improve our products and services.
What type of information do Cookies collect? The Cookies on our Site may collect information such as:
• the IP addresses assigned to the computers and other devices you use;
• your internet service provider;
• the device ID number;
• approximate geographic location;
• the Site pages visited or clicked on;
• the date and time you visited the Site, and the amount of time spent on the Site;
• your operating system, browser type, search requests, and other similar information;
• the websites you access before and after visiting the Site, and
• data related to how and when you use the Site.
We may combine information from Cookies with Personal Information, including data obtained from other sources.
How long do Cookies last? A Cookie can either be a “session” Cookie or a “persistent” Cookie. Session Cookies exist only for so long as you are visiting the applicable Site and are typically deleted when you exit your web browser. Persistent Cookies exist for a set period of time, for example, up to several months or years. Each time you visit a Site that has implemented a persistent Cookie, the persistent Cookie is renewed and that Cookie will remain active until its predetermined expiration date. You can manually delete persistent Cookies through your browser settings.
First-party versus third-party Cookies. Cookies may either be “first-party” or “third-party” Cookies. A first-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to the actual Site that you are visiting (i.e. this Site). A third-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to a third-party website, such as the source of an ad that appears on the website you are visiting or a third-party analytics provider. We do not have control over how information gathered by third-party Cookies is used by third parties.
How do you manage Cookies or opt-out? Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can disable this function by changing your browser settings, but disabling cookies may impact your use and enjoyment of the Site. Not all features or functions of the Site may work properly if you disable Cookies. You cannot disable all Cookies, such as Cookies that are essential to the functioning of the Site.
Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics to collect and process information about your use of the Site. Google sets cookies on your browser or device, and then your web browser will automatically send information to Google. Google uses this information to provide us with reports that we use to better understand and measure how users interact with our Site.
We may also implement additional add-on services to Google Analytics, such as Demographics and Interest Reporting.
Online Behavioral Advertising. We use third parties and/or service providers to provide interest-based advertising services. These services may serve advertisements on our behalf that are customized based on predictions about your interests generated from your visits to websites (including this Site) over time and across different websites. The data collected may be associated with your Personal Information. These advertisements may appear on the Site and on other websites, and may be sent to you via email.
To change your preferences with respect to certain online ads or to obtain more information about ad networks and online behavioral advertising, visit National Advertising Initiative Consumer opt-out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program. Changing your settings with individual browsers or ad networks will not necessarily carry over to other browsers or ad networks. As a result, depending on the opt-outs you request, you may still see our ads. Opting-out of targeted advertising does not opt you out of all ads, just those targeted to you.
Source: We Collect Personal Information From Third-Party Sources. We obtain data about individuals from third-party content providers and we may combine that data with Personal Information or other data we collect. This enhances our existing data about our users (e.g., adding address data), improves our ability to contact you, and enhances our marketing capabilities.
