About Healthlatimes and its Tools
Healthlatimes provides website operators (“Publishers”) with customizable social sharing tools, which makes sharing online content simple. Any user of a website can easily share anything on the web with their friends on social sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Email, Digg, Reddit and more through using one of our tools on that website (“Healthlatimes Icon”).
Healthlatimes also collects data about internet users and how they interact with content, websites and adverts which enables Healthlatimes and our Publishers, advertisers, customers and data partners to facilitate the delivery of relevant, targeted advertising online to these groups. We also carry out analytics and provide insights to understand internet users’ Healthlatimes and improve the effectiveness of online content and advertising, based on such browsing, sharing, and what is considered to be the profile of that group.
We do this by using technology such as cookies and pixels (including pixels and cookies for our customers) (“Healthlatimes Publisher Applications”) to gather information regarding the browsing and sharing activities of internet users, both on websites that use our Healthlatimes Icon and other websites which have our technology installed on them. We also receive data from others who operate in the data analytics and advertising industries. We analyse and aggregate the data we collect to create groups of data (called audience segments) based on defined criteria. For example, we segment into groups internet users who we believe have similar characteristics, interests, needs or behavioral patterns. Where we are able to infer that two or more browsers or devices are the same user or household, we may use that information to bolster our audience segments.
Targeted advertising has the aim of displaying advertising which is more likely to be of interest to internet users, based on analyses of their recent browsing and sharing activities and interactions with the website and adverts. It is also sometimes referred to as interest-based advertising or online behavioural advertising. For more information on this type of advertising, click here.
