Privacy Policy 

This Privacy Policy forms part of our TERMS OF USE and describes how the Interactive Advertising Bureau, Inc. (“IAB,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collect, use, and disclose (collectively, “process”) information of our Website visitors (“you” or “your”). Terms not defined in this Privacy Policy take their meaning from the Terms of Use linked above.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY
We may, in our sole discretion, add, modify, or delete provisions of this Privacy Policy at any time. We will post the effective date of any change at the top of this Privacy Policy. Your use of our Website after the effective date of any such modification means you agree to be bound by the Privacy Policy, as modified. Please review this Privacy Policy regularly so that you remain aware of the terms and conditions that apply to you.

COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
You voluntarily provide personal information to us (or a third-party service provider on our behalf), such as name, postal address, email, or telephone number, when you take actions such as registering on our Website or making a request for information or services. We may process this information for purposes such as responding to your requests or providing you with marketing, transactional communications, or access to events, interactive features (e.g., conferences or webinars), or other services.

We, or a third-party service provider on our behalf, may process payment-related information provided by you (or on your behalf) via the Website for the purpose of billing you for products, services, or event tickets you purchase through our Website.

COLLECTION AND USE OF PSEUDONYMOUS INFORMATION
We may use first- or third-party “cookie” technology that can process information associated with devices that visit our Websites. Although the term “cookie” commonly is used to refer to a small text file stored on a device, we use the term “cookie” in this Privacy Policy to refer generically to any technology that can track information in relation to your visit to our Website, such as a “pixel tag.”

These “cookies” typically do not collect data from your device that identifies you directly (e.g., by name or address) but, rather, by a pseudonymous cookie ID or a mobile “ad id,” each of which is represented by a randomized set of alphanumeric characters, or perhaps an email address (oftentimes hashed). However, depending on the purpose for which such cookies are used, the third party that operates such cookies may associate your “cookie information” (such as described in this section) with other information that the third party holds internally, which may identify you more directly.

“Cookie information” typically includes such data as the referral web domain, the type of operating system and browser you are using, mobile device identifiers, IP address, pages that you visit, the date and time of your visit, how long you stay on a page, location data, information relating to activities on our Website (e.g., “clickstream” data), log-in details, and other technical attributes of visits to our Website. This information may be processed for purposes such as analytics (e.g., understanding how visitors utilize our Website, visitor demographics), advertising (targeted or otherwise) and related measurement purposes (e.g., understanding its effectiveness, attribution), confirming membership status or what products you (or the entity to which you may be associated with) subscribed to, and storing log-in information so you don’t have to re-enter them each time you return to our Website.

You may stop or restrict cookies on your computer or delete them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences and you should consult the operating instructions that apply to your browser for instructions should you wish to do so and in general to determine how best to configure your browser settings to meet your requirements.

Further, to opt-out of use of Google Analytics (a third-party service provider used on our Website), you can download this browser add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. We disclaim all responsibility for, and do not control, any opt-out mechanisms provided by any third party.

Interest-Based Advertising: If a third party serves advertising to you on our Website or on another digital property on our behalf, the third party may process information about your visits to our Website or other websites around the Internet, information that we may provide it, advertisements that you interact with, or other information about you in order to serve advertisements about products and services that may be of interest to you. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising. In the course of serving interest-based ads, these service providers may use cookies and other technologies, such as those described or mentioned above in this Privacy Policy. IAB is a founding member of the Digital Advertising Alliance, and if you would like more information about interest-based advertising, and to know your choices about not having this information used by those that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance, please click here: www.aboutads.info.

ADVERTISERS, SPONSORS, AND LINKS TO OTHERS
Our Website may display information from third parties, such as promotions, offers, ads, or links to third-party digital properties.

Some IAB services, such as seminars, educational events, conferences, newsletters, and discussion groups, are sometimes sponsored by other companies that are not under our control. When you participate, register, or engage with certain of our services, we may disclose your business contact information, such as name, email address, title, and country location, to our sponsors, subject to your use of any opt-out mechanism that we may provide to limit such sharing of information from us to those sponsors.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Website or take advantage of advertised offers, links, or other references, many of which may direct you or your Internet browser to digital properties of a third party. Even if we have a relationship with a third party you may encounter or see on our Website, these third parties or any of their websites, advertising, technology, or other content, including any cookies or other technology they may use, are neither our responsibility nor under our control and they have their own terms, conditions, policies, and practices that apply to you, including those concerning processing of your information.
