WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED BY THE TECHNOLOGY?
Core Audience Technology Overview
Core Audience Technology enables website publishers manage their audience data and helps advertisers deliver relevant ads to websites and other places where consumers go when they are online. In order to deliver those ads, our Technology needs to collect and store information. None of the information we collect via our Technology can be used to identify an individual person.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information
Core Audience does not collect personally identifiable information via our Technology.
HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION COLLECTED VIA OUR TECHNOLOGY?
The non-personally identifiable information collected via our Technology is used to better target advertisements to consumers across the different websites they visit within the Core Audience or our Business Partners’ network of websites. Core Audience may also use the non-personally identifiable information to better target content to consumers in an effort to create a more relevant experience for each consumer. The data are also used to predict responses to advertisements, and to help determine which ads perform best and which content is most appropriate for different consumers. In addition, the non-personally identifiable information may be combined with non-personally identifiable information collected from other sources so that we may better serve consumers with advertisements and offers that may be of interest to them. We may also share non-personally identifiable information with our subsidiaries and Business Partners for similar use.
Core Audience does not create nor use any sensitive data segments to tailor ads. However, we recognize that consumers may have differing opinions regarding which data segments are sensitive. In order to provide transparency around potentially sensitive data segments collected and used by our Technology, we will provide examples of them here. For example, we collect non-personally identifiable information segments of users that we believe might have an interest in health issues because they have visited certain web sites that are focused on health related topics such as exercise and holistic healing.
While we don’t consider any of the above data segments to be sensitive, we think its important to provide this transparency to help you have a better idea of which segments might be collected by us, so you can make informed decisions. And we don’t use or enable our clients to use any data segments to determine credit worthiness, for insurance underwriting or similar purposes.
