Privacy and Data Use Policy for Digital Remedy
Digital Remedy is an advertising network that may deliver advertisements to the Websites you visit. Digital Remedy understands that your online privacy is important to you. We have created the following Privacy and Data Use Policy (the “Policy”) to let you know what information we collect on this Website and when we serve advertisements on our network of Websites owned by third-party publishers (collectively, the “Digital Remedy Site Network”), how such information is used, and how it is shared with third-parties if shared at all.
Please read this Policy carefully. Use of the Digital Remedy Site Network, this Website and your sharing of information with us is subject to the terms and conditions of this Policy. By using the Digital Remedy Site Network, this Website or sharing information with us, you give your agreement to this Policy. The Policy may be revised or updated at any time by us as further described below.
The terms “you,” “your,” and “yours” refer to the Website visitor or consumer. The terms “Digital Remedy,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Digital Remedy, and the companies under its control (such as subsidiaries), or under common control (such as parent companies, or companies owned by its parent company) (collectively, “Digital Remedy Entities”).
Ad Delivery & Reporting Across Multiple Sites
As part of our ad delivery and reporting, we log page views and collect information for the purpose of delivering ads or providing advertising-related services, including providing a specific advertisement based on a particular type of browser or time of day; statistical reporting in connection with the activity on a Website; and tracking the number of ads served on a particular day to a particular Website. To do so, we collect information about the type of browser and operating system of Website visitors, as well as the domain name, day and time of visit, and page(s) visited. We do so across multiple Web domains owned or operated by different entities (each, a “Site”).
We want to deliver more relevant advertising to you. Delivering more relevant advertising to you and other Website visitors allows Website owners to generate more advertising revenue. This revenue pays for the free content that they may publish for you or free services that they may deliver to you. It also means that you are more likely to see online advertising that meets your interests.
In an effort to deliver relevant advertising to you, we collect data across multiple Web domains owned or operated by different entities to categorize likely consumer interest segments for use in advertising online (“Online Behavioral Advertising” or “OBA”). For example, we can analyze aggregate, anonymous data to determine that a visitor of a particular Site at 6:30 PM is more likely to be interested in Pizza, or antique cars, or a classic movie. We can then serve an ad to the Web page the visitor is viewing that offers a discounted Pizza, car show tickets, or classic movie DVD—importantly—without ever knowing the identity or personal information of the visitor.
If you do not wish to benefit from relevant advertising, please feel free opt-out OBA as described in the paragraph titled “OBA Opt-Out,” below.
We collect the information described above by using log files, Web beacons, and cookies. We often engage or cooperate with service and technology companies to collect this information. While this tracking and collection technology is commonly used, you might not be familiar with it, and we would like to explain it:
“Log files” track actions occurring on Websites and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, click data and types of advertisements viewed.
“Web beacons” are electronic files used to track your navigation of a Website or collection of sites, the completion of transactions, submittal of applications and browsing behavior.
We use the information we collect for marketing and advertising purposes to determine which ads perform well, to better match ads and Website content to your interests, to improve the operation of our services, to maintain the quality of our services, to enhance our services to our business partners and clients, to provide general statistics to our business partners and clients regarding use of Digital Remedy services, and for the other purposes described below.
Personally Identifiable Information
We do not collect data that includes a name, address, telephone number, email address, government-issued identification, or data that likewise would identify a specific individual (“Personal Identifiable Information” or “PII”), except when you may wish to provide PII as a visitor to this Website or a member of the Digital Remedy Site Network, for example by completing a customer service form. While we generally will use such information only for the purpose that it was intended, we reserve the right to use and share such information under these terms.
Third-Party Data Usage: Information Obtained from Other Companies
We license and otherwise obtain all types of information from various other companies, including research companies, financial information companies, data aggregation companies and other third-party companies. Data sets may include information about you or your demographic segment that such companies have licensed, purchased or collected. We use this information for all the purposes described in this Policy, and for any other purpose that we chose.
Sharing Your Information
In the event that Digital Remedy is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from you as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your information is treated, transferred, or used.
Information Collected by Third-Party Sites
Your Internet browser stores OBA-related data as cookies. If you have cookies disabled, if you delete your cookies, or if other software deletes the cookies used for that data storage, such data is lost because it is not retained separately by Digital Remedy. The cookies that store data related to Digital Remedy OBA will in any case expire one year after the last time such information is stored, barring any technical malfunction.
Digital Remedy retains information regarding ad delivery (see, “Ad Delivery & Reporting” above) for up to six (6) months. However, Digital Remedy may retain aggregate statistics, reports, and summaries regarding ad delivery for a longer period.
Digital Remedy may delete any or all of OBA or information regarding ad delivery that relates to you at any time and in the sole discretion of Digital Remedy, notwithstanding its normal data retention policies. Further, Digital Remedy reserves the right to retain and use any information described in this Policy as reasonably necessary to comply with laws or regulations, notwithstanding any limitations described in this Policy to the contrary. If Digital Remedy changes its retention data policies by updating this Policy, its new policies will apply to all data then retained by Digital Remedy.
OBA Opt-Out and Your Choices
Advertisers may collect data about your online browsing activity and use it to show you targeted ads (a process known as “behavioral advertising”).
You can prevent these companies from showing you targeted ads by submitting opt-outs. Opting-out will only prevent targeted ads so you may continue to see generic (non-targeted ads) from these companies after you opt-out.
To opt-out, you can visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page to opt-out by clicking here.
You may opt-in to behaviorally targeted ads anytime by deleting your browser’s cookies.
Opting-Out of Interest-Based Mobile Ads
If you choose to opt-out of interest-based ads on your mobile device, you’ll still see ads, but they may not be related to factors such as your interests, previous visits to other websites, or demographic details. To do so, please follow directions for your device below:
European Union Privacy
GDPR Rights to Personal Data Collection
Personal Data collected from EU citizens (“PD”) is collected only for legally necessary data retention and legitimate business purposes, which are our legitimate interests and where your rights and freedoms do not outweigh these interests. These include maintaining our services, for example by reviewing information associated with stalled or crashed pages, experienced by users allowing us to identify and fix problems, fraud suspicion in order to comply with legal obligations and laws, give you a better, safer experience, and monitor and improve the information security of our site and mobile applications.
PD is not stored or sold for commercial or profitability purposes. PD is not retained for any longer than it is necessary. PD is only accessed by personnel under confidentiality agreements with the necessary clearances. We have balanced the collection of your personal data, and our use thereof, against your interests, rights and freedoms and have chosen the least intrusive methods in order to satisfy our legitimate interest. You have the right to contact us to see what PD we have collected, to have that PD corrected and/or have it deleted.
We do not consider PD to include information that has been anonymized or aggregated so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific natural person, whether in combination with other information or otherwise.
Digital Remedy may find it appropriate or necessary or may be legally obligated, to update this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will post those changes on this page and update the effective date (found at the bottom) so that you have a way to always become aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. For changes to this Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of information you have already provided to us, we will attempt to obtain your consent (if we have the necessary contact information) before implementing such revisions with respect to such information, or notify you either by placing a prominent notice on the home page of our Website or by directly sending you a notification. For all other changes, it is your responsibility to review this Policy frequently and remain informed about any changes to it, so we encourage you to visit this page often.
