5. Information We Collect

  1. Information You Provide to Us: When you register to use the Services, communicate with our customer service team, send us an email, or post on our blogs or forums, you’re giving us information that we collect. That information may include your IP address, name, physical address, email address, phone number, credit card information, and other details like gender, occupation, and other demographic information. By giving us this information, you consent to your information being collected, used, disclosed, and stored by us as described in our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
  2. Information from your Use of the Services: We may get information about how and when you use the Services. This information may include your IP address, time, date, browser used, and actions taken by you within the application.
  3. Cookies: Cookies help to enhance your experience on the web. We use cookies to do things such as keep users logged in and serve users relevant ads. We may store information about when you visit our Website, when you use the Services, your browser type and version, your operating system, and other similar information. You may turn off cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on your browser, but if you block our cookies, it may be more difficult (and maybe even impossible) to use the Services.
  4. Web Beacons: When we send emails to registered AdPlugg Users, we'll sometimes track who opened the emails and who clicked the links. We do that to measure our email campaigns’ performance and reach. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details.
  5. Information from Other Sources: We may get more information about you, like name, age, and participation in social media websites, by searching the internet or querying third parties (we’ll refer to that information as Supplemental Member Information). We only collect data that’s publicly available or provided by a third party according to its terms of use.

7. Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

We may use and disclose your Personal Information as follows:

To learn more about the steps we take to safeguard that data, see Section 10 below.

9. Notice of Breach of Security

Nobody’s safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you, then AdPlugg will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.

10. Safeguarding Your Information

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. All transactions involving confidential information (such as authentication credentials or payment details) are encrypted using SSL technology.

We do everything in our power to keep your password secure. This includes hashing it when it is stored (meaning it can only be reset and not viewed or retrieved) and we encrypt it when it is transmitted (such as when you authenticate). You, however, are also responsible for keeping your password secure, never disclose it to anyone.

We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.


11. Accuracy of Data, Transparency, and Choice

We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information that we need to do that. If your data changes (like a new email address), then you’re responsible for notifying us of those changes.

12. Enforcement

We regularly review our compliance with this Privacy Policy. If we receive a complaint, then we’ll respond to the person who made it.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about AdPlugg’s privacy policy, and thanks for trusting us to handle your advertising needs.
