Cookies help our websites provide you with a better user experience and more relevant content. In general, cookies are used to store information like your preferences or login and provide tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience a lot better and provide a smoother navigation.
However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. Consider consulting the Help section of your browser or take a look at this “About Cookies” website for guidance with all current web browsers.
Please note that blocking cookies may impact your experience on our websites and limit the level of services we are able to offer online.
We have a set of essential website cookies that cannot be prevented other than by not using our websites. These cookies help us:
PPA’s websites, like most websites, include functionality cookies provided by third parties. A common example is an embedded YouTube video. And unlike essential cookies, these third-party cookies can be disabled.
In addition to the essential cookies listed above, PPA websites may include cookies from the following third parties:
These third-party cookies fall into three categories:
It is worth noting that opting out of these third-party cookies or interest-based ads will not mean that you will stop seeing ads. Instead, the ads you will be served will no longer be tailored to you.
For your own peace of mind, know that you can opt-out of all these cookies at any time (see the next section "Turning Cookies Off", below).
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies on any website.
You can usually set or amend your web browser controls to switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive a notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. Please see the links below for guidance on how to modify your web browser’s settings on the most popular browsers:
If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our websites; However, know that doing so will likely limit your access to some functionalities and areas of PPA.com, PPmag.com, ImagingUSA.org, and PhotoVisionVideo.com as cookies are not only a standard part of most modern websites, but they allow safeguarding of content that is reserved for PPA members.
Please note that if you reject cookies or disable cookies, your use of certain features or functions on our website or platforms or services may be limited. When you opt-out, the random ID we (or our third-party partners) had previously assigned to you will also be removed. This means that if at a later stage, you decide to opt-in, we will not track you with the same ID as before, and you will for all practical purposes be a new visitor in our system.
To find out more about cookies and targeted ads, including to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out platform and follow the instructions there.
By opting out of targeted advertisements you will no longer see ads from advertisers who participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance; however, you may still continue to see other non-targeted ads on our websites from PPA partners.
Lastly, should you choose to delete all cookies from our sites registered on your devices, you’re also deleting the log where we know which consent or refusal you have issued. Deleting your cookies is like resetting your consent, which means that you will be asked to log in and re-take several steps of navigation each time you come back to the website or until you accept or refuse the cookies each time. Similarly, if you use another internet browser, you will have to accept or refuse these cookies again because your choices depend on the browser and device that you use to access our site.
PPA will periodically update this cookie information page to reflect changes to the cookies we use as well as for operational, legal and regulatory reasons. In order to stay informed about how PPA uses cookie-related technologies, come back to visit this page.
You can request access to the personal information we hold about you at any time by writing to us at the following address. We may ask you to provide proof of identity before we show you this personal information - so we can prevent unauthorized access.
