What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?
Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party Web sites. 
These third-party Web sites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our Web site directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party Web sites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies (also called "ad networks" or "network advertisers"), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection. 

Although World By Shotglass does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad (for example, users in the northwestern United States who bought or browsed for classical music). If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please let us know.

What Choices Do I Have?
  • As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of certain World By Shotglass features.
  • If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please let us know. (If you do not want to receive Conditions Of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of World By Shotglass, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)
  • If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please let us know.
