HOW WE USE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH OUR PLATFORM

The information we collect is used for marketing purposes. It enables us to more effectively match the ads served to you on websites and in apps with your interests or geographic location, helps to ensure that you do not see the same ads multiple times (frequency capping), and helps our clients to better understand how their apps are used and how people respond to advertising. If you submit personal information to Pinsight or to one of our partners, we will use that information for the purpose for which you submitted it (e.g., to send you a newsletter you request).

We use the information we collect to provide and improve the suite of services provided by Pinsight and InMobi group, including but not limited to the following purposes: (a) serving ads, (b) ad reporting (ads shown and ads clicked), (c) frequency capping: Preventing users from seeing the same ad too many times, (d) fraud detection and prevention, (e) interest-based advertising, (f) geo-targeting of ads.

Ads may be customised to the users’ interests and geographic locations, which we may derive or infer from information that we collect about how those users interact with such sites and apps (this type of advertising is often called “interest-based advertising” or “targeted advertising”). We may infer the geo location of a device based on data collected through a WiFi identifier that the device is connected to, subject to country specific laws and/or industry guidelines related to such collection or inference practices.

Pinsight may engage in cross-device data collection, which refers to the process of collecting data from devices that have been determined through statistical analysis to be linked or related. We, or third parties whom we engage to provide this service, may use cross-device data to provide interest-based advertising services and to deliver tailored ads to users across multiple devices.

HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH OUR PLATFORM

We may share user information with our partners, data vendors, customers, measurement companies for purposes of advertising, data analytics, fraud detection, marketing solutions or helping them understand how their apps are used. These partners may use this information to show you relevant ads, measure your ad/site interaction, identify your interest areas, better understand the site and app traffic usage or user behaviour in order to refine and improve their services. Such partners’ use of the information we share with them will be governed by their privacy policies.

We may share certain user information with our parent or affiliates, subject to applicable legal requirements including directives of regulatory bodies, for the purpose of improving the suite of service(s) of InMobi group including targeted advertising, marketing solutions, data analytics and reporting. Any such sharing is pursuant to implementation of adequate technical security and privacy measures to ensure protection of your data including where such data is transferred from U.S. to other locations.

We also may share information if we are required to do so to comply with applicable law, regulation, or legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request, and with our trusted service providers who work on our behalf and agree to use the information as directed by us and in compliance with this privacy policy.

We may also disclose information collected through our platform as part of any merger, acquisition, or sale of company assets. In the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, personal information may also be transferred as a business asset.
