3. Types of Information Collected and How it is Collected
3.1 Personal Information We Request From You
3.2 Other Types of Information We Collect
AdKaddy also gathers certain information about Your shopping and advertising preferences, how You use the Application, including the frequency of visits, and other information that may help AdKaddy improve the customer experience, mitigate fraudulent activity, and comply with legal requirements. Such information may include, but is not limited to, the following:
When You visit AdKaddy’s Application, We automatically collect and store certain information in Our server logs. This type of information includes details of how You interacted with the Application. It may include information such as: IP address, Unique Device Identifier, or CallerID / ANI (Automatic Number Identification) information, content of advertisements, transaction with APIs (Application Program Interface), transactions with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) systems, activity, and content of visitor interaction with call center representatives; Application usage activity, hardware information, and hardware and system settings.
A cookie is a small, data file that is managed by an application and stored on Your local device. AdKaddy uses session and persistent cookies to, among other things, identify Your device during a particular interaction and analyze Your behavior during a particular visit. Most applications provide You with the ability to accept or decline cookies, as well as to be warned each time a cookie is being sent. If You choose to decline cookies, You may not be able to fully use AdKaddy’s Application.
Pixel tags help AdKaddy better manage user experience and content tracking. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with unique identifiers, which provide a similar function to cookies and are used to track user interaction with content provided by AdKaddy or an advertiser. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device, pixel tags are embedded invisibly within content. The small size and transparency of pixel tags are not intended to deceive content recipients, but minimize distraction.
Do Not Track and Third Party Advertising Cookies
Do-Not-Track is a public-private initiative, that has developed a technical “flag” or signal that an end-user may be able to activate within their browser software to notify applications that they do not wish to be “tracked” by third parties as defined by the initiative. The initiative, however, has not reached a consensus as to exactly what technical or other actions those parties receiving the signal should take. As a result, Do-Not-Track has not yet been standardized and most applications, including AdKaddy, do not alter their behavior or change their services when they receive a “do-not-track” flag or signal. You can, however, make decisions about Your privacy and the advertisements You receive.
Some of the ads You receive on applications are customized based on predictions about Your interests generated from Your visits to different applications. This type of advertisement customization is sometimes called “online behavioral” or “interest-based” advertising.
As an alternative to the opt-out, You can also elect to block all cookies from first parties (such as AdKaddy) and from third parties (such as any entities involved in advertising) by using the cookie blocking options built into Your device.
4. Retention and Deletion of Personal Information
AdKaddy will retain Your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws. When personal information is no longer needed or legally required, it will be permanently deleted or de-identified so that it can no longer be associated with a specific individual.
5. Use of Personal Information
