Sportif USA uses the concept of remarketing - an advertising strategy that allows us to show ads to users who have previously visited our website as they browse other sites on the Internet. The goal is to leverage the user’s previous displayed interest to increase the likelihood that they will come back and purchase. This is accomplished by an ad network – for example Google AdWords by placing an anonymous cookie on your computer so that future ads can be offered to you based upon your previous activities on our website.

• Tawk.to – chat service
How is tawk.to preparing for GDPR?

AdRoll uses ‘cookies’ to inform their ad magic. When customers visit sportif.com, a cookie is saved to the browser on their device which allows us and our supply partners to learn and remember a bit about each customer. You can then use that information to create relevant ads that match their experience—like recommended products and related deals. Starting on May 25, 2018 changes in the EU law and requirements from our supply partners mandate that all businesses (including AdRoll) ask for consent from individuals in the EU before using cookies and processing end-user data to provide our services. That means you need a tool to help you capture user consent when engaging with EU customers. Customers in the EU (or with a lot of EU customers): We built a tool that collects cookie consent related to our services. We can also review your own tool if you have one. Customers outside the EU: You can set up our tool in a few clicks to keep reaching interested EU visitors.
