Choice

Fever Digital manages e-mail lists through its List Management Arrangements. Consumers may wish to remove themselves from specific Fever Digital marketing lists. As such, users may remove themselves from a specific mailing list by utilizing the list-unsubscribe option that is present and available at the end of each e-mail that Fever Digital sends.

Moreover, consumers may elect not to receive advertisements from a specific advertiser at any time. In every e-mail communication we send, there is also an unsubscribe hyperlink that allows the recipient to unsubscribe from receiving commercial emails from that specific advertiser by clicking the hyperlink provided and following the instructions provided. We process all unsubscribe requests in a prompt fashion.

Unsubscribe requests are either processed on an advertiser-specific basis or on a list-specific basis, depending on the selection the consumer makes. Unsubscribing from one list managed by Fever Digital will not remove the consumer from all Fever Digital marketing lists. Similarly, unsubscribing from one advertiser will not prevent the consumer from receiving all advertisers’ emails.

Use of Cookies 
We deploy both first-party and third-party cookies when consumers open and “click” a link within the emails we send pursuant to our list-management relationships or when consumers register on a partner site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing activity-based information about you, and it is designed to facilitate the receipt of targeted and relevant advertisements. The cookie is not associated with your email address or any other PII. 

Fever Digital’s cookies are used to for two purposes. First, Fever Digital leverages cookies to better serve display advertising to consumers; these advertisements are chosen to meet specific consumers previous web-surfing or demographic data, but the advertisements are not selected using data such as WHO specifically a consumer is. Secondly, Fever Digital leverages cookies to provide partners with demographic information regarding the consumers who visit the partner’s site. Again, no PII(such as name or email address) is included in the cookies Fever Digital sets.

Additionally, every email we send as a result of a list management relationship contains a bit of code known as a “web beacon.” This code allows us to understand the time and date of when a user has opened an email and when he/she has utilized a link within the email to visit a Web site. Our web beacons do not collect PII. Users wishing to disable our web beacons should do so by turning images “off” in their email client (e.g., Outlook, Outlook Express). Please see your email client for more information.
