08. OPT-OUT OF INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

Undertone is committed to providing consumers notice and choice regarding IBA. Undertone offers an “opt-out” for those that wish to opt-out of Undertone IBA activities on the web: https://www.undertone.com/opt-out/.

 

This cookie will honor your IBA preferences for a period of five (5) years. We may increase this period, which means your opt-out choice will continue for a longer period. If you have multiple Internet browsers or users on the same computer, you will need to perform the opt-out operation for each browser and/or user. If you or your anti-virus or other software deletes the opt-out cookies from your computer, if you re-install your browser, or if you delete your cookies (which can happen if you clear or delete your browser history), then you will need to repeat the process.

 

Undertone is a member of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). You may opt-out of web IBA conducted by Undertone and other member companies of the NAI by visiting the NAI website: www.networkadvertising.org, or you may opt-out of IBA by Undertone and other member companies of the DAA by visiting the DAA website: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

 

Undertone adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (“DAAC”) principles. For Canadian consumers, you may also access the opt-out tool on the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC) website or the Ad Choices Canada website (en Français): http://youradchoices.ca/icon/index.html

 

If you are a California resident and wish to opt-out from having your data used for IBA, you may exercise your right here: https://optout.privacyrights.info/.

 

You may also be able to configure your IBA preferences and opt-out of the collection of information for advertising purposes from your Internet connected devices (e.g., Smart TVs or Set-Top boxes). Depending on the model of your Internet connected device, please refer to the applicable manual and/or settings menu of the applicable device. In addition, you may also refer to the NAI Connected TV choices opt-out page: https://thenai.org/opt-out/connected-tv-choices/, which explains how users can activate privacy features in many common TV and OTT environments.

 

Undertone is also committed to providing customers the ability to opt-out of IBA in the mobile setting. For mobile opt-outs, we rely on the standard opt-out mechanism for ad traffic that we get from mobile applications. Users may choose not to be tracked for advertising purposes by accessing their mobile device’s privacy settings. When Undertone receives an in-app ad request from an in-app advertising partner, it also receives a “DNT” (do not track) indication in the ad request. The value for the DNT parameter is captured from the user’s privacy settings. When Undertone receives a DNT=1, we honor this as an opt-out request. Additional information and instructions on opting-out on mobile devices may be available on the NAI Mobile Device Opt-out page: https://thenai.org/opt-out/mobile-opt-out/.

 

Undertone’s website and Services also are able to recognize the Global Privacy Control preference.

 

Ad choices settings and options will vary depending on your browser and device settings, and this is not an exhaustive list. Please note that your opt-out choices will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt-out. We encourage you to explore your device and browser settings to understand your choices better. Please report any problems related to the opt-out process to privacy@undertone.com.

09. DATA RETENTION

The retention periods are determined according to the following criteria:

  1. For as long as it remains necessary in order to achieve the purpose for which the Personal Data was initially processed. For example: if you contacted us, we will retain your contact information at least until we will address your inquiry.
  2. To comply with our regulatory obligations. For example: transactional data will be retained for up to seven years (or more under certain circumstances) for compliance purposes.
  3. To resolve a claim we might have or a dispute with you, including any legal proceeding between us, until such dispute is resolved, and following, if we find it necessary, in accordance with applicable statutory limitation periods.

11. INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS

Our data servers in which we host and store the information are located in the US. The Company’s headquarters are based in New York and Israel in which we may access the information stored on such servers or other systems such as the Company’s ERP, CRM, Salesforce, and other systems. In the event that we need to transfer your Personal Data out of your jurisdiction, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that your Personal Data receives an adequate level of protection as required under applicable law. Furthermore, when Personal Data that is collected within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the United Kingdom (“UK”) is transferred outside of either jurisdiction to a country that has not received an adequacy decision from the European Commission or UK Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”), we will take necessary steps in order to ensure that sufficient safeguards are provided during the transferring of such Personal Data, in accordance with the provision of the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Union and UK. Thus, we will obtain contractual commitments or assurances from the data importer to protect your Personal Information, using contractual protections that EEA and UK regulators have pre-approved to ensure your data is protected (known as standard contract clauses), or rely on adequacy decisions issued by the European Commission or ICO. Some of these assurances are well-recognized certification schemes.

We will discard any information we receive from a user that is considered a “child” immediately upon discovering that such a user shared information with us. Please contact us at: privacy@undertone.com if you have reason to believe that a child has shared any information with us.
