Privacy Notice

This website is operated by AMNET, the trading desk of Dentsu Aegis Network Group. AMNET (Amnet, we, us) has adopted this Privacy Notice for the website located at www.amnetgroup.com  and to govern the data collection by Amnet across third party websites on behalf of our clients.

This Privacy Notice does not apply to the website of any other company or network brand within the same group of companies as Amnet.

We are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of all individuals with whom we interact and to fostering user confidence in online advertising.  Accordingly, we support and promote relevant industry guidelines including those established by the Interactive Advertising Bureau and the CAP Code on Online Behavioural Advertising.  We participate in the European Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) self-regulatory programme and adhere to the EDAA Principles for Online Behavioural Advertising.

We provide services for our clients such as digital media services and purchase of inventory within ad exchanges and other media sources via Amnet’s trading platform (Services).

The purpose of this Privacy Notice is to provide transparency around how we collect information online, in connection with our Services and on this website.

This Privacy Notice explains the following:

 

In the Supplementary Information section of this Privacy Notice, we explain what is meant by “personal data” and other terms used in this notice.

 

      1. The personal data we collect through our Services

When conducting Services on behalf of our clients, we collect unique mobile device ID or internet protocol (IP) address online identifiers, which are numbers that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet. This helps us to identify users that we may have interacted with before.  For instance, by using this information, we may be able to identify whether a web browser has previously been served with an advertisement that we launched on behalf of a client.

 

We may also collect information such as the type of internet browser used by an online user, the type of computer operating system used, the domain name of the websites visited before and after viewing an advertisement, and information related to websites and web pages a user is viewing when an advertisement is shown.

 

This information is collected through the use of cookies, pixels and related technologies managed by our third party partners.   A cookie is a file on your web browser that uniquely identifies your web browser and computer.  A pixel is a line of code which is used by a website or third party to match online activities to a particular computer or web browser.  The use of a pixel allows websites and Amnet to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular web page.  In addition, personal data from an earlier browsing session or interaction may be included in the pixel.

 

In the context of personal information, whenever we refer to ‘you’ or ‘yours,’ please remember that we may be referring to a user’s browser profile and not an identifiable person since we do not collect or receive information that directly identifies a user (such as your name or email address).

 

For more information on our use of cookies or other technologies deployed by Amnet please see our separate Cookie Notice.

 

  1. How we use the personal data collected through our Services

We collect and use the personal data to offer a range of Services to our advertiser clients. By collecting information regarding your web browsing, usage or interactions with advertisements, our clients are able to show you the most useful and relevant online advertisements across numerous websites, and to prevent excessive or repeated deliveries of the same advertisements.

 

For example, if a user browser’s profile indicates an interest in car options, then our Services may help our clients deliver interest-based online advertisements to that user about a particular type of car.  This is known as “profiling” – using automated means to process your personal data to analyse or predict your personal preferences, interests, or behaviour. This enables our clients to work out how best to deliver relevant online advertisements that are relevant to your preferences, interests or behaviours. You can object to our profiling (see section 7 of this Privacy Notice, below).

 

This information is also used for the purpose of research and analysis. If you would like to learn more about online behavioural advertising practices you can visit the following websites: www.iab.net/privacymatters  and www.aboutads.info .

If you voluntarily provide information that directly identifies you to one of our clients, whether via their advertisements, websites or any other online portal, then that information will be provided to such client, and will be subject to that client’s privacy notice.

 

From time to time we may ask other members of the Dentsu Aegis Network Group, or third party service providers, to help us manage our information technology systems and to process data that directly identifies you (voluntarily provided on this website) and other personal data (obtained on behalf of our clients when providing Services) on our behalf. Some of these entities or their servers may be located in countries overseas, including countries located outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

 

We will only transfer your information to a third party service provider or overseas, where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect the integrity and security of any information being processed and in compliance with applicable privacy and data protection laws. These measures include the use of Standard Contractual Clauses, the EU-US Privacy Shield or the Swiss-US Privacy Shield.

 

  1. How we secure your personal data

We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against unauthorised access or accidental loss of your personal data in accordance with generally accepted industry standards.  This includes undertaking necessary physical, electronic, and management activities required to protect information integrity, access, and use.
