Online Behavioral Advertising

HCSS may advertise products and services you need or want. We may also partner with advertising companies to serve you ads based on your web browsing activity, purchases and/or interests. Some techniques for delivering content based on your interests are referred to as online behavioral advertising ("OBA").

We use OBA, such as Google AdWords Remarketing and other retargeting vendors, to advertise HCSS in a way that’s relevant and personalized to you. You allow us to use any information you have provided to us to serve a relevant ad to you. For instance, we may display relevant ads tailored to you based on what parts of the HCSS website you have viewed by placing a cookie on your machine. Additionally, if you explicitly consent by submitting HCSS forms, we may use that information within an ad.
