Business Client Privacy Policy

Effective Date: April 23, 2013

Adconion Media, Inc. (“Adconion”) and its subsidiaries respect and value your privacy rights. The following Privacy Policy describes the type of information we collect about Business Clients including, but not limited to, advertisers, publishers, ad networks, and list owners; how we secure that information; how we use that information; and the choices you have regarding the collection and use of your private information. By signing up for any service provided by Adconion or one of our subsidiaries you consent to this Business Client Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect and Retain

User Direct Information. Adconion collects information that personally identifies you (“PII”), such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, social security number, credit card information, bank account information and telephone or cell phone number, but only if you choose to share it with Adconion. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you elect not to register with or provide such information, you may not be able to access certain content, features, or services available on or through Adconion’s ad network or website. Adconion may collect this PII when you voluntarily complete an Adconion survey, order form, or a registration page either online, by using the internet, or offline, by providing this information through the mail, in person or using a telephone.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology. Adconion and some of its subsidiaries currently use cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about you with information about you in their database. Additionally, they may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future.

(a) Cookies. “Cookies” are a feature in your browser software. If enabled, a third party may write cookies that store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to any of the pages of this Site. Cookies assist Adconion and some of its subsidiaries in tracking which of our features appeal the most to you and what content you may have viewed on past visits. When you visit a website again, cookies can enable Adconion and some of its subsidiaries to customize the content according to your preferences. Adconion and its subsidiaries may use cookies to: keep track of the number of return visits to a website; accumulate and report aggregate, statistical information on website usage; deliver specific content to you based on your interests or past viewing history; and save your password for ease of access to a website. You can disable cookies, although the website may not function properly for you. Your browser preferences can be modified to accept or reject all cookies, or request a notification when a cookie is set. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. In order to use all of the features and functionality of Adconion’s website, you need to accept cookies.

Google Analytics Cookie. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analyzing service of Google Inc. (“Google”). We have added the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (known as “IP masking”). Google Analytics is based on cookies. The cookie-generated information about your use of this website is transmitted to and stored by Google’s servers in the US. Due to the IP masking, the IP address is only transferred in shortened and hence anonymous format. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and further use of the website and Internet related services. The shortened IP address provided by your browser will not be merged with other data from Google. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. We would point out though, that in case you might not be able to use all features of this site completely. You can also prevent the detection of data generated by the cookie and to your use of the website related data (including any part of your IP address) to Google and the processing of these data by Google, by using the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB) to download and install the provided browser plug-in. Further information about Google Analytics and data protection is available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB or under: http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. They are also known as “clear gifs”, “one-pixel gifs”, “web bugs”, “Internet tags”, or “pixel tags.” This allows Adconion and some of its subsidiaries to track certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be interested in. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, some subsidiaries of Adconion also use web beacons in e-mail messages sent to individuals listed in Adconion’s database. Web Beacons are used to track payments to vendors and other third parties as well.

(c) IP Addresses. Adconion and some of its subsidiaries automatically track certain information based upon your behavior on websites owned and operated by them. They may use this information to do internal research on their users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve you and their community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the site or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. Your Internet Protocol (“IP”) is a unique Internet “address” which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. Your IP address can also reveal what geographic area you are connecting from and which ISP you are using.

(d) Computer Profiles. Adconion and some of its subsidiaries may also collect and accumulate other anonymous data which will help them understand and analyze the Internet experience of their visitors. For instance, they may accumulate visitor data relating to referring domain names, the type of browsers used, operating system software, screen resolutions, color capabilities, browser plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search engine keywords and JavaScript enablement.

How Information is Used and Shared

Disclosure of Information to Service Providers and Third Party Vendors. Adconion may disclose your PII to third party service providers and vendors in order to effect or carry out any transaction that you have requested from Adconion or as necessary to complete its contractual obligations with you. This includes e-mail service providers, providers of direct marketing services and applications, including lookup and reference, and data enhancement, suppression and validation services. Adconion contractually prohibits the sale or transfer of PII by such service providers and vendors. Adconion may share PII with affiliated companies that are directly or indirectly controlled by, or under common control of Adconion.

Complying with Legal Process. Adconion may use or disclose your PII in response to subpoenas, court orders, warrants, or legal process, or to otherwise establish or exercise Adconion’s legal rights or defend against legal claims or in the event of a breach in an agreement with Adconion. Adconion will use and disclose your PII if Adconion believes that a user of this Site or Business Client will harm the property or rights of Adconion, its owners, or Adconion’s other customers. Finally, Adconion will use or disclose PII if it believes it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Adconion’s acceptable use policy.

Merger or Sale of Adconion. If Adconion sells, merge or otherwise reorganizes its business, Adconion reserves the right to transfer and disclose PII to the purchaser or investors, but will require such person or entity to govern the collection, storage and use of PII by the same privacy policy that existed prior to any such business change unless and until you consent to the new privacy policy.

Security

Adconion has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control. Please be advised that, although Adconion takes reasonable technological precautions to protect your data, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, Adconion cannot and does not warrant that your information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through our website is at your own risk.

Do Not Call Waiver

By registering at the website or for our services, you agree that such act constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (16 CFR 310 et seq.), as amended from time to time and other telemarketing laws such as FCC rules. Notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, we reserve the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule.

Information Collected from Children.

Adconion and its subsidiaries will never knowingly collect any PII about children under the age of 13. If Adconion obtains actual knowledge that it has collected PII about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, Adconion has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties.

California User Consumer Rights.

California Civil Code § 1798.83 permits California residents who have provided PII to Adconion or third parties under a list management arrangement with Adconion to request certain information regarding Adconion’s disclosure of such information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Within thirty days of receiving such a request, we will provide a list of the categories of PII disclosed to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of these third parties. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the address specified in this section.
