1.2.2 Digital Markers (including Cookies), Online Tracking Technologies, Online Interest Based Advertising
A digital marker is created by a website visitor’s Internet browser to maintain certain pieces of information for the website to reference during the same or subsequent visits. Examples of digital markers are cookies or HTML5 Web storage. Among other things, digital markers can allow a website to recognize a previous visit each time the visitor accesses the website, and track what information is viewed on a website.
We use sessional and persistent digital markers on some portions of our websites. Digital markers are created when you visit our websites. Sessional markers exist while you remain on our websites, and persistent markers continue to exist after you have left our websites.
For information on the digital markers (including cookies) we use and the purposes for which we use them see the applicable Cookie Notice for the ComPDFKit website(s) you may visit.
Similarly, we or our third-party service providers/advertisers may also use "web beacons", "pixel tags" or other tracking technologies, which are typically small pieces of code placed on a web page to monitor behavior and collect certain data regarding the actions of our visitors online.
These digital markers and other technologies may be used to track across time, sites, and devices. For example, these technologies can be used to analyze your online traffic patterns, to enhance your experience when using our products, to store information during your session, to personalize our websites for you based on your preferences and selections, to target advertising or content to you (as described further below), and to collect information about you and your usage of our websites or apps for other marketing and business purposes. You may adjust your privacy preferences regarding the use of digital markers, including cookies, and similar technologies through your browser. However, disabling cookies may impair your user experience and disable certain features of our websites.
Data about your activities online may be collected for use in providing advertising tailored to your individual interests, either by us, or third parties. We may work with third parties such as network advertisers and ad exchanges to serve advertisements across the internet and may use third party analytics service providers to evaluate and provide us and/or third parties with information about the use of these ads on third party websites and viewing of ads and of our content.
We and these third-party vendors, including Google and LinkedIn, may use third-party technologies (such as the LinkedIn Insight Tag) together with our own first party technologies in order to analyze ad impressions, your use of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services. The information collected may also include information about your visits to our websites, including the pages you have viewed and what content you have seen. These third-party tracking technologies may be set to, among other things: (a) help deliver advertisements to you that you might be interested in; (b) prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times; and (c) understand the effectiveness of the advertisements that have been delivered to you.

We are also working closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, technical and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, and search information providers) and may receive personal data about you from them. We may combine this personal data with personal data you give to us and personal data we collect about you to create combined personal data.
