This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and Conditions posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Merch Inn collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Merch Inn’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Merch Inn’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Merch Inn may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Merch Inn also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://merchinn.com blog posts. Merch Inn only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Merch Inn’s websites choose to interact with Merch Inn in ways that require Merch Inn to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Merch Inn gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://merchinn.com to provide a username and email address.

Merch Inn uses Google AdWords for remarketing

Https://merchinn.com uses the remarketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site.

Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.

Merch Inn uses the Facebook Pixel for conversion tracking and remarketing

We use the “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”)) on our website.

This allows user behaviour to be tracked. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes as well as provide the basis of future remarketing campaigns. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you, based on our knowledge of the situation. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.

The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f GDPR. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel, or to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
