Advertisements from Third Parties Through GGather’s Ads Program
Our mission is to democratize publishing. So that we can offer free access to create a website using GGather.com, we show ads on some of our users’ sites. Our users may also choose to place ads on their site through our ads program. Additionally, we also show ads from our ads program on some of our own websites (e.g. longreads.com), and in emails.
Below is a representative list of our advertising program partners, along with information on the cookies that that each partner sets. The partners we work with change from time to time, and this is not an exhaustive list. Your choices to control cookies related to our ads program are described below.
|Google (AdSense, DoubleClick Ad Exchange “AdX”)||https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads|
Please note that this section is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather aims to be representative and there may be other additional cookies set.
In order to better understand how our services are used, we monitor certain user activities that take place within our products, including page views and clicks on any links used when managing a site via our dashboards.
We call each one of these actions an “event.” Analytics events are attached to your GGather account and are handled via a first party system that GGather owns and maintains. In general, we record the following data for each event: IP address, GGather user ID and username, GGather-connected site ID (for sites not hosted on GGather), user agent, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code.
