1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We provide platform & services to online and offline publishers, advertisers and their agents. We collect information, including personal information in various ways when you use our Sites, Application(s) and Services. As referenced in this Policy, "personal information" means any information which, either alone or in combination with other information, identifies you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, and email address.
Information You Provide Us
We collect information, including personal information, you provide us voluntarily. For example:
• We collect your first and last name, email address, and password when you requested an account to log in to our network ("Account").
• We may retain information on your behalf that you store using your Account, including postal address, phone number, fax number and company name information.
• If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our Application(s), we may collect your mobile carrier and the Advertising ID, such as Google Ad ID and Apple IDFA, which is a unique, user-resettable ID to help advertising services.
• If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information for internal analytics purposes.
• We may also collect personal information at other points in our Site that state that personal information is being collected.
Information Collected Via Technology
We automatically collect certain information via technology:
• When you visit our Sites or use our Application(s), some information is automatically collected. This may include information such as the Operating System (OS) running on your device, Internet Protocol (IP) address (which may be used to obtain your geolocation), access times, browser type, and language, and the website you visited before our Sites. We also collect information about how you use Media Lab's Sites, Application(s) and Services, including the elements you have interacted with, metadata and other details about these elements, clicks, change states and other user actions.
• Pixel Tags. In addition, we use "Pixel Tags" (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages and determine whether those e-mails have been opened, to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users' personal information.
• Mobile Services. We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our Application(s). This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you and improve our Services and analytics platform. Examples of information that may be collected and used include how you use the Application(s) and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application(s) crash on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model and OS version, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application(s).
2. DATA COLLECTED AND USED TO PROVIDE MEDIA LAB PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Customers may combine some or all features of our products and services described below
We do not share our customer's personally identifiable CRM Data with anyone other than that customer. At the direction of our customer, we may disclose CRM Data along with information such as Log Data in order to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and for other reporting and analytic purposes. We don't use this kind of reporting and analytics data to target advertisements to specific individuals.
SMART analytics. Media Lab's SMART analytics connects data and media across
all channels to enable publishers to gain actionable insights into their current digital
properties for increased reach and sales. Advertisers and their agents use our
SMART attribution product to pinpoint exactly where to invest to generate more sales,
get cross-channel insights in a single view, and grow addressable markets, ensuring marketing
spend efficiency across a marketer's entire budget.
We aggregate and analyze this information, along with website and de-identified CRM Data in order to provide reports to our publisher, retailer, and advertiser customers. These reports give our customers insights about the demographics and interests of their customers and prospects, the advertisements they see, and they interact with online content. Customers use our reports to improve the performance of their advertising campaigns and Sites, to better understand their audiences and to enhance the relevance of advertisements and content you see.
SMART audience. Media Lab's SMART audience platform is a Customer Data Management platform that uses name,
address, mobile phone number, and other information collected from sweepstakes, surveys,
event sign-ups conducted by our customers.
Our customers use this information to communicate with you about promotions,
upcoming events and news about products and services they or their selected partners offered.
Customers also use these services in combination with our predictive market
segmentation tools described below.
Creation of Anonymous Data. We may create anonymous data records from personal information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymous data to analyze request and usage patterns to create market segments. We use information supplied by our customers to associate Mobile Advertising IDs, such as Apple IDFA and Google Ad ID with market segmentation information. These cookies and IDs do not contain or convey Personal Information. Our customers permit us to access Personal Information to associate an online browser or mobile device with the pre-assigned Segment Code for that household or consumer. Once the association is made, which is nearly instantaneous, we discard the Personal Information and set a cookie or make an association to a database entry that contains the pre-assigned Segment Codes, along with information about the user's year of birth, gender, and zip code.
We use this information (which does not identify you personally to help publishers and advertisers deliver more relevant online content. We use Log Data associated with these services for marketing and analytics purposes, and to understand what kind of mobile devices are being used. We may also use the anonymous data to enhance the content of our Services and improve Application(s) and Site navigation. We reserve the right to use anonymous data for any purpose and disclose anonymous data to third parties in our sole discretion.
We also create and store linkages between and among household or individual level identifiers such as Cookie IDs, Mobile Advertising IDs, hashed email addresses and/or other persistent IDs that have been assigned to a unique but de-identified user. This process is sometimes called 'cross device linking'. We do not use the stored de-identified linkages to identify you personally to third parties or to create profiles based on your behavior across sites and over time.
We use these de-identified linkages to support Onboarding customer-provided segmentation information associated with 3rd party cookies or Mobile Advertising IDs. We use this information on behalf of our customers to measure and analyze the effectiveness of particular advertising campaigns and understand at an aggregate level the impact these campaigns have on offline and online behavior. Our customers or their agents may also use this information to target advertising based on consumer preferences and attributes. We also use cookie data, in combination with Log Data, the stored de-identified linkages discussed above, and in some cases, customer CRM Data to help our customers re-market, at a household level, to their web site visitors. We do not provide household data to our customers or create profiles based on your visits to a web site.
