8proof Privacy Policy

Last modified: 8-Feb. 2020


This Privacy Policy describes how 8proof.com collects, uses, shares and secures personal information through its services.
This Privacy Policy describes 8proof.com’s data practices associated with our services (“Services”) and explains how 8proof.com may collect, use, and disclose information when you visit any website, app or platforms that uses our Services.

8proof.com has created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our commitment to privacy.

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

8proof.com provides digital advertising services for the benefit of our business partners, include our bidding system, which is a web-based, real-time, programmatic technology operating in a marketplace that enables publishers, advertisers and ad networks to efficiently market, buy and sell digital and mobile advertising and ad inventory.

Please note, that these policies differ from 8proof.com’s policies described in this Privacy Policy.

This also allows us and our partners the ability to display more relevant advertising to users and for you to see more interesting and relevant advertisements and content.
8proof.com’s intention is to never collect any information about you that can directly identify you.
8proof.com’s service automatically recognizes that it is the same user (without specifically knowing who you are) if you visit our partner’s site. 8proof.com “knows” it is you because we assign a random unique identifier we call an User ID and in our secure database, we log information about activities of that User ID, only when you use one of our connected services.
Publishers and other clients that utilize our bidding system may also have their own policies that govern how they collect, use, and share data.
Please note, that these policies differ from 8proof.com’s policies described in this Privacy Policy.
Please consult the privacy policies of the websites you visit and/or apps/platforms you use to become familiar with their privacy practices and to learn about any choices that these companies may offer with respect to their information practices.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY PERSONAL INFORMATION

“Personal Information” is defined as any data relating to a living individual who can be identified directly from that data or indirectly in conjunction with other information. It can take the form of a name or address and, now, under new data protection laws in Europe, this can extend to uniquely generated IDs, IP addresses and other “unique identifiers” which do not tell us who a user is in the “real world”.
We cannot identify a user by name or find out where they live, but instead, it gives us and our business customers a picture of the demographic characteristics of a user.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

8proof.com does not collect PII (Personally Identifiable Information) but we do collect: “Pseudonymous” data and technical identifiers; and measurement statistics on the performances of 8proof.com’s services.

8proof.com collects data and pseudonymizes it, which means that we are not aiming to identify a person in the “real world”.

Information collected by 8proof.com includes: cookie identifier; general location data about the individual.

8proof.com ensures that no directly identifying information is stored on our platform, by requiring all data to be hashed before collection (i.e. pseudonymized). 8proof.com does not collect the following types of personal data: an individual’s name or data associated with the individual’s physical, physiological, genetic, mental or cultural identity. We do not knowingly collect or categorize users based upon sensitive data or ‘special categories of data’, such as racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs, financial information, precise information about health conditions or treatments or other similar or related information. 8proof.com does not collect any sensitive or special categories of data.

We neither intentionally collect information from, nor target any services to, children under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have collected information of a child under 13, we delete that information as soon as possible.

WHAT WE DO WITH THIS INFORMATION

8proof.com collects the data, and then decides on the specific business use depending on one of the main business activities -

Online advertising: We will use the collected data to make decisions or buy, monitor, or report on the delivery of online advertising for our advertiser via ad exchanges. We may also share performance data (i.e. relating to viewability of the ad, and any subsequent conversion) with advertisers and their representatives in the digital advertising ecosystem. During this process, we may overlay third-party data collected from third-party data providers, to enhance our decision making. We may also use data to target ads on televisions and peripheral devices.
Measurement and Analytics: Once 8proof.com collects data, it is collated and classified in the database in aggregated form, and may be made available via reporting or via the 8proof.com platform for high level trend analysis in an aggregated form. We may also use the data to create analytics about industry trends, or the effectiveness of media.

The collected data may also be transferred in an encrypted format to our vendors and suppliers; including cloud data centers and hosting providers. The data will also be used for specific internal 8proof.com operations including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, and statistical or survey purposes.

FOR HOW LONG DO WE PROCESS PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR

8proof.com will never store data for longer than necessary and always in accordance with data privacy laws and regulations. As is the normal practice in the advertising technology industry, we set our cookies to expire after the two-year from the last use of our product.
