These third parties have access to your Personal Data to perform these tasks on our behalf. They are obligated by contract not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Digital Advertising & Analytics

We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Website and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.

Calvert Hall adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this interest-based advertising activity. You may visit the DAA Webchoices tool at www.aboutads.info to learn more about this type of advertising and how to opt out of this advertising on websites by companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program. If you delete your cookies or use a different browser or mobile device, you will need to renew your opt-out choices exercised through the DAA Webchoices tool. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. Additionally, your browser may offer tools to limit the use of cookies or to delete cookies; however, doing so may interfere with the proper display and function of the Website.

We may also use third-party organizations to analyze your use of the Website and other sites or apps over time for non-advertising purposes. Calvert Hall uses Facebook Pixel, Google Analytics, and other third-party services to improve the performance of the Website and for analytics and marketing purposes. For example:

Facebook Pixel – Facebook Pixel’s conversion tracking and analytics helps Calvert Hall measure User interest, interaction with the Website, and return on investment of Facebook Ads by reporting on certain actions a User takes after viewing those ads.

Google Analytics – Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated by Google that tracks, reports, and monitors traffic to understand the use of the Website. Please note that this data is shared with other Google services, and Google may use this collected data to tailor and personalize the ads presented through its own advertising network.
