We use information collected at various times and by pixel tags and cookies placed on several Web sites in order to deliver our service to advertisers and create a more targeted advertising experience for the user.
As part of its service, eXelate does NOT collect any personally identifiable information from Users. eXelate also does NOT store any personally identifiable information such as name, address, telephone number, social security number or e-mail. As a result, we have no way of tying any of the information we collect back to a particular User.
Some of our Targeted Publishers, Displaying Publishers and Networks may place their own cookies on a user’s internet browser outside of the eXelate service, however eXelate has no access to or control over these cookies.
As a matter of policy, eXelate does not set any targeting cookies based on adult related searches or adult content.
Although some of the data contained in the cookies generated on a user’s internet browser is also written to the eXelate database, this is done solely in an aggregate form, for reporting, analysis and accounting purposes with eXelate’s clients. eXelate does not obtain or maintain separate data for a given user on its servers.
2. INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
As described above, eXelate stores only aggregated data on its servers. We may share such aggregate, non-personal information with Targeted Publishers, Displaying Publishers, and Networks in connection with reporting and accounting needs as well as with other unaffiliated third parties for various purposes such as statistical or educational analysis.
We disclose eXelate Targeting Data, and information derived from eXelate Targeting Data, to our customers in the ordinary course of our business. These customers include the companies listed here. We indicate to our customers (including the companies listed here) a user’s membership within a Targeting Data segment at various times. For example, we may tag an anonymous user as a member of a segment when the user views certain Web pages that are operated or controlled by a Targeted Publisher. Our customers may use a user’s membership within a segment to display advertisements and other content that are targeted to the user. Our customers may also use third-party service providers, acting on behalf of those customers, to display advertising or other content that reflects a user’s membership in a segment. We do not authorize our customers to resell or sub-license Preference Data to third parties. Targeting Data is to be used for marketing related purposes only.
We may share eXelate Targeting Data with third-party service providers (e.g., data storage and processing facilities) in order for those service providers to perform business functions for us or on our behalf.
We may also disclose eXelate Targeting Data if we believe that we have a legal obligation to do so.
eXelate policy is to retain our anonymous log file data for up to 120 days. This data is kept in an anonymous form and used for analysis purposes only, not for the delivery of any targeted advertisements or other content.
Also, in the event eXelate is merged into another company, or another company acquires all or substantially all of eXelate’s assets, including, without limitation, in the event of bankruptcy, all data compiled or owned by eXelate may be among the items transferred in that transaction. In such event, all the data will continue to be governed by this Policy.
3. HOW IS OUR INFORMATION SECURED AND PROTECTED?
All of the user data collected by eXelate is stored only in aggregate form, meaning that information about a specific user cannot be retrieved. Even so, we maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect all our data from accidental, unauthorized or unlawful access, use, modification, disclosure, loss, or destruction. The data is kept on a secure server and we restrict access to the data solely to authorized users. No security measures, however thorough, are perfect and there can be no absolute assurance of security and therefore, we cannot and do not offer an absolute guarantee or warrant the security of the information we possess.
