This Audience Privacy Policy describes AdPlugg's privacy policies in regards to persons viewing ads served by the AdPlugg advertising system.

If you would like information regarding the privacy of users of the website and the AdPlugg Services, please read the Privacy Policy.



We’ll start by getting a few definitions out of the way to help you to better understand this policy. When we say "we", "us", "our", the "Company" or “AdPlugg”, we’re referring to Third Set Productions, d/b/a AdPlugg, a State of California sole proprietorship. When we say “you” or “Audience Member”, we’re referring to the person that is viewing or interacting with an ad served by the the AdPlugg Advertising System (the “System”).

The AdPlugg System is used by "Customers" to manage and serve their ads. These Customers may be publishers of online publications such as news sites and blogs, advertisers, who use the System to gain exposure for the products and services that they offer, or any other registered user of the System.

We provide the System through our website (the “Website”).

AdPlugg doesn't collect personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") regarding Audience Members. Personal Information is defined as information by which you may be personally identified, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number ("Personal Information").

We do, however, collect Anonymous Information, which is information that cannot reasonably be used to personally identify you. In addition, we collect Aggregate Information which is information about groups or categories of Audience Members, this information is also anonymous and cannot reasonably be used to personally identify you.

To provide you, the Audience Member, with an optimal advertising experience, as well as to provide statistics regarding the Service to our Customers, AdPlugg collects certain types of information. As mentioned above, we do not collect Personal Information. These are the types of information that we collect:

Anonymous Information

When you are shown or when you click on an ad, we may record event data regarding the impression or click event that occurred. The event is stored in our systems using only Anonymous Information. The Anonymous Information may include your IP address, time, date, browser used, and where the event occurred.

Aggregate Information

Our Systems periodically aggregate this Anonymous Information into Aggregate Information.



Cookies help to enhance your experience on the web. We use cookies to perform statistical analysis such as determining the number of unique users who viewed an advertisement.

Web Beacons

To communicate ad events with our Systems, we may use single pixel gifs, also called web beacons.


To Provide Performance Statistics to Our Customers

AdPlugg uses the Anonymous Information and Aggregate Information to provide our Customers with ad performance statistics. These statistics may include how many times an ad was viewed or how many times an ad was clicked.

To Measure Customer Use

AdPlugg charges our customers based on how many impressions their ads receive. This metric accurately measures the load that their use of the System puts on our servers and other resources. To bill our customers, we use the aggregate impression data for their account.

To Prevent Fraud

AdPlugg may use Anonymous Information to determine whether or not events that have been recorded were fraudulent.


Data Processors

To provide the Service, AdPlugg uses certain Third Party Data Processors such as hosting companies. These Data Processors provide storage and processing resources for the Anonymous Information and Aggregate Information

We are very selective with the Third Parties that we choose to partner with and only select Third Party partners that we believe are committed to personal privacy.
