Information Which We Collect Automatically

When you visit our Website, we may collect certain information automatically from your device. In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered personal information under applicable data protection laws.

Specifically, the information we collect automatically may include information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type, broad geographic location (e.g. country or city-level location) and other technical information. We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with our Website, including the pages accessed and links clicked.

Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Website, where they come from, and what content on our Website is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our Website to our visitors.

Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading “Cookies and similar tracking technology” below.

Third-party websites

AdKarma is not responsible for the methods by websites or applications that contain links on the website or are linked to its website nor the contact and information presented therein. Third-party Internet sites and services accessible through AdKarma have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of AdKarma. AdKarma has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions.

Disclosure/Sharing of Personal Information

AdKarma may share voluntarily-provided personal information (i) to enable third party service providers to assist or facilitate in the services AdKarma provides; (ii) to comply with applicable laws and regulations or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information AdKarma receives, whether or not a response is required by applicable law, and to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Terms of Access, or as otherwise required by law; (iii) to enforce an agreement or to protect AdKarma's rights; with any parent, affiliated or successor entity; (iv) in connection with any asset sale, transfer, divestiture or liquidation; (v) in connection with strategic alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements to permit the offering of products or services AdKarma believes may be of interest to you or where AdKarma has determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by the third party; (vi) as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing or sale of assets (including any due diligence connected therewith), as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership; or (vii) as permitted under any agreement with you or with your consent. AdKarma may also share aggregated data with others. Aggregated data does not include personal information. Except as provided above AdKarma will not share any of your information with any third party without your permission.

Legal basis for processing personal information (EEA visitors only)

If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only (i) where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, or (iii) where we have your consent to do so.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate our platform and communicating with you as necessary to provide our services to you and for our legitimate commercial interest, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities. We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “Contact” heading below.

Overseas Transfers and Processing of Your Information

Your personal information may be used by us and our affiliates, subsidiaries and our suppliers who may be located in countries such as the United States. The data protection laws in these countries may not offer the same level of protection as those in the country where you are located. We have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice. These include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information between our group companies, which require all group companies to protect personal information they process from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection law.

Our Standard Contractual Clauses can be provided on request. We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third party service providers and partners and further details can be provided upon request.

Children Information

AdKarma is respectful and keenly aware of the privacy rights of children. AdKarma's products and services are not intended for persons under 18 years of age and the website is not directed to children. AdKarma does not knowingly solicit or collect any personal information from children under the age of 18, nor knowingly markets AdKarma products and services to children under this age. If you are a parent and are aware that your child has provided AdKarma with personal information without your knowledge or consent, please contact us immediately at privacy@adkarma.com.

Security Measures

AdKarma uses appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the security of all information, including the use of passwords, firewalls, encryption and remote servers, and routinely evaluates our practices to identify security threats or opportunities for the improvement of our services. No transmission of information is guaranteed to be completely secure. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise data security.

Retention

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Your data protection rights

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area, you have the following data protection rights:

  • If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information, you can do so at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided under the “Contact” heading below.
  • In addition, you can object to processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information. Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided under the “Contact” heading below.
  • You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing e-mails we send you. To opt-out of other forms of marketing (such as postal marketing or telemarketing), then please contact us using the contact details provided under the “Contact” heading below.
  • Similarly, if we have collected and process your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority. Contact details for data protection authorities in the European Economic Area are available here.

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
