INFORMATION COLLECTED WHEN YOU VISIT OUR CUSTOMERSâ€™ WEB SITES
When you visit a Web site operated by one of our customers who has implemented our “Social Audience Management” service on its Web site (a “Customer Site”), our service places a tracking cookie on your personal computer or digital device and appends a unique user ID to create a unique URL specific to your Web browser. The tracking cookies that our service places on your computer do not include your name, address, phone number, email address, or any other information that is personally identifiable to you. At no time does our service transmit to our customer any information that is personally identifiable to you.
Our service collects and analyzes information about conversions, click behavior, link sharing, and other activity about visits to and activity on a Customer Site from your computer, and shares this information with the customer who operates the Customer Site. We may, on an aggregated basis that does not reveal data specific to any of our customers or end users of Customer Sites, disclose or distribute to third parties data about user behavior across all (or most) of the Customer Sites covered by our service.
In addition, for some of our Customer Sites, we place additional tracking cookies and “pixel tags” (also known as “Web beacons” or “tracking pixels”) on your personal computer or digital device. These pixel tags and tracking cookies do not include your name, address, phone number, email address, or any other information that is personally identifiable to you. We rely on a third party service provider to place these pixel tags and tracking cookies on your computer, and we provide them to other third party service providers so that they can identify your computer when you visit a Web site that participates in our advertising network and serve advertisements to you that we believe will be relevant or interesting to you, based on the information we have tracked about your activity on Customer Sites. We may share these pixel tags and information we collect about activity from your computer with our third party service providers in order to provide this advertising service to our customers.
You should be aware, however, that Customer Sites are not owned or operated by us. Instead, they are operated by third parties who are our customers. We do not exercise any control over the privacy practices of our customers. The privacy of your personally identifiable information on Customer Sites is governed by your relationship with the Customer Site, including any privacy statement that may be posted on the Customer Site. In addition, you should be aware that our customers could combine information we provide about your activity on the Web with personally identifiable information they have separately obtained about you.
