Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is information about you that can be used to contact you or identify you as an individual. PII may include: your name, username, phone number, email address, and physical address. To the extent we obtain PII about you, such information shall be held for no more than one (1) year before it is deleted.

Personal Data
Personal Data is information that is associated with an individual and enables that individual User to be singled out. Through the use of ad tags and cookies we collect information about you. Typically, the information obtained does not identify you directly (i.e. by name or email address), however, the information may indirectly identify your device or geolocate you for purposes of delivering targeted advertisements. Under European privacy law, some information transmitted by Cookies and Tags including Log Data are considered personal information. To the extent we obtain Personal Data about you, such information shall be held for no more than one (1) year before it is deleted.

What Information We Collect for Client’s Accounts:

  • Registration information – Your first and last name, mailing address, phone number, email address, Skype contact and other similar contact details if you register on our site.
  • Technical / Access information – Details including your IP (Internet Protocol) Address, User-Agent and activity including pages accessed, information entered are stored for fraud prevention and security auditing.

The information we collect and log, as outlined above, is necessary for secure account access and for securing the data systems of the platform. This information will not be sold or otherwise transmitted for commercial usage.

Information Collected Relating to Users and Advertising:

  • Device and Connection Information – Details including your IP (Internet Protocol) Address, User-Agent and activity including URLs of websites or names of applications accessed. The details of a User’s device and the context of where it is seen, as it related to URLs and applications is important for general ad targeting. These elements of a User’s browser or device are available for targeting, but are not made available to target a User individually.

Where ads may be targeted directly to a user – commonly called “retargeting”, in service of an advertiser or merchant whose website or app a User may have interacted with previously, clear and informed consent will be collected before such retargeting techniques will be activated.
