Information We Collect
Personal Information That You Give Us
We generally do not collect or use personal information about individual Users through the Adelphic Service. When we say “personal information,” we mean individually identifiable information that would allow us to determine the actual identity of and/or directly contact a specific living person, such as an email address or telephone number.
We collect personal information only when we are contacted directly by an individual through the Site and the individual voluntarily provides personal information to us, such as by submitting a question or registering to use the Adelphic Service. Adelphic does not collect personal information about consumers that receive advertiser offers through the Adelphic Service.
Information We Collect Automatically
The Adelphic Services collect information about your device and the ads that we deliver onto your device. This data, which is collected passively using various technologies may come from such sources as your web browser or the apps that you use. We also may obtain the precise location (e.g., lat/long coordinates) of your device and may use that information to target ads. We also combine the information collected across multiple sites and mobile apps in order to create interest segments that help us target future advertisements based upon those inferred interests. This practice is sometimes referred to as behavioral advertising or interest-based advertising. We use this information as part of the Adelphic Services to perform a variety of tasks, such as limiting the number of times a specific advertisement is presented to the same User (frequency capping), providing an advertisement to only certain types of Users, or providing a report to a client on the number of its advertisements that were clicked. We may share this information with clients, vendors, and other companies that we conduct business with as permitted by law.

Pseudonymous Ad Serving Information
Adelphic uses the pseudonymous information we collect via the Adelphic Service to create audience segments that make advertising delivered to consumers more relevant. This process is sometimes referred to as interest-based advertising. This information is typically associated with the advertising identifier referenced above. This information is used by us, our clients and partners, including advertisers and publishers, to deliver targeted advertising. In the process of serving an advertisement to a device, we, or our partners, may decide to serve an ad based on one or more audience segments associated with that device, and the audience segment we believe may be associated with that device. Where Adelphic is able to use this and other information to infer that one browser or device likely belongs to the same User or household, the Adelphic Services may consider those browsers and devices “linked” for purposes of ad serving and interest based advertising This linking process is sometimes referred to as creating a device graph. The data we collect is also used for reporting purposes, to give our clients more information about the performance of their advertising campaigns, and to improve performance over time.
