At ShopAdvisor, maintaining the trust of our customers is a top priority. We take privacy seriously! ShopAdvisor does not sell, rent, share, or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information from customers in violation of the commitments set forth in this privacy notice.
Information We Collect
The information we learn from users helps us personalize and continually improve a customer’s experience with ShopAdvisor. Here are the types of information we gather.
Automatically Collected Information & Cookies – When customers visit our web sites or use our products and services, we automatically track non-personally identifying information related to their use of the ShopAdvisor services. This information may include (among other things) access times, browser and machine type, as part of our offering and providing customizable and personalized services.
Applications that use our API may forward information about customer’s device to ShopAdvisor in order to provide the service they require. This information includes user-supplied information such as keywords; categories and product identifiers used to search, and automatically collected information, access times and the advertiser’s identifier of the device manufacturer.
ShopAdvisor works with partners to deliver ads relevant to shoppers of interests and location. As a result, our ad distribution partners provide us with the location of their device in order for us to serve a relevant ad.
How We Use the Information We Receive
Information collected automatically from applications or ad partners is used to provide ShopAdvisor’s services. ShopAdvisor also uses information derived and aggregated from the usage of its services to create data offerings for its customers. No personally identifiable information is included in such offerings.
Information Shared with Our Partners
As a general rule, ShopAdvisor will not disclose any personally identifiable information except when we have permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described.
We work closely with trusted partners and third-parties
Our site may include sections with third-party advertising, and some of our advertisers use third-party companies to serve their advertisements that appear on our site. Often, these third-party advertising companies, called “ad networks” or “network advertisers”, employ cookie and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to show ads that are more relevant and interesting to shoppers. We do not provide any user information to them.
How We Store & Secure Information
ShopAdvisor uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of personally identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers. We make every effort to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. In addition, we always use a secure connection when collecting personal financial information from you. However, no data transmission over the open Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
ShopAdvisor retains the collected information for as long as needed to provide our services. We will retain and use the information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. ShopAdvisor will remove latitude & longitude information from its database within 6 months of the end of campaigns, which generated that information.
