What is retargeting?
The main goal of retargeting ads (also known as remarketing ads) is to re-engage visitors after they have left the SMA site. Dynamic retargeting ads are generated based on the actual information viewed on the SMA site. For example, if you have visited sagarmusicacademy.com and viewed a specific department page, you might receive an advertisement containing a copy referring to that department. Rather than showing the same ad to every visitor, the software can select the most relevant ad copy based on the user’s activity on the site. Personalized retargeting systems work via tags on the SMA website. This tag embeds a third-party cookie on the browser of users visiting the sagarmusicacademy.com site, enabling the advertising platform to serve up relevant retargeting ads to that user. It is important to note that the cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information. Instead, retargeting ads match the right offer to each visitor based on that visitor’s previous activities on the sagarmusicacademy.com site.
How can I opt-out from being retargeted?
SMA makes removing our tracking cookie easy for any user who chooses to do so. Users that don’t want to see SMA’s personalized retargeting ads should write to us at email@example.com. You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the ‘’Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules, 2011’’(India). A small fee will be payable. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
