Location Based Advertising By InMarket

Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy
Effective and Last Updated: May 14th, 2021

InMarket Media, LLC (“InMarket,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is committed to honoring the privacy rights and respecting the privacy decisions of individuals. We believe you deserve to understand and make choices about how your data is used.

This Privacy Policy explains how InMarket collects, uses, and may sell or disclose personal information that we receive when you use our Services. Our “Services” means our mobile applications, third party mobile applications that incorporate our software development kit (“SDK”), our advertising platform (including our demand side platform), our technology, our websites, and our related services. “Third Party Partners” are companies who integrate with or use our Services, such as digital marketers, data companies, and publishers who integrate our Services into their mobile applications. We require our Third Party Partners to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including applicable privacy laws.

InMarket is a proud member of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). We are committed to the core NAI values of notice and choice in advertising. We also adhere to the Digital Advertising Alliance Codes that apply to our business.

We partner with one or more third party advertising companies to manage our advertising on other sites. Because we enable these third parties on the website, we may be considered to have sold data to these third parties over the past 12 months. Our Third Party Partners may use cookies, hashed identifiers, or similar technologies in order to provide you with relevant advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. This practice is sometimes referred to as interest based advertising. If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising from those partners, click here.

1. Sources of Personal Information Collected
2. Information from You

You may provide information manually while using our Services, for example, by typing your email or using a social profile to register for or update an account. We also collect personal information when you communicate with us, request information, or register for a promotion.

3. Information from our Services

Our Services may collect personal information through our mobile applications, our Third Party Partners’ mobile applications, and our websites. Our Services and our Third Party Partners may also collect data using technology such as cookies, ad tags, and pixels. Web beacons are invisibly embedded electronic images and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use cookies to store this type of information when we serve ads onto Internet browsers. For more information about cookies and web beacons, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/. Some of our partners send us information directly via a “server to server” file instead of using web technologies like cookies, web beacons or pixels. We also collect advertising identifiers (IDFA or AAID), third party proprietary identifiers, ad exposure information such as URL, site name, creative, publisher, and channel, precise geo-location information, session information, operating system, IP address, hashed email address and device model. All of these technologies help us to deliver relevant ads, provide ad measurement and reporting, and generate market insights.

4. Information from Third Party Sources

We may also collect information about you and your device from third party sources including public databases, social media platforms, data append services, third party marketing partners, data brokers, and others. The information we collect from third party sources may include categories such as demographic information and commercial information. We may use this third party data to augment personal information that we have collected.

5. Categories of Personal Information Collected

InMarket collects, and has collected in the past 12 months, the following categories of personal information: 

  1. personal identifiers (for example, your name, email address, postal address, phone number, mobile advertising identifier, internet protocol address, and cookie ID); 
  2. protected information under the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)), (for example, your name, credit card number, debit card number, or any other financial information); 
  3. protected class characteristics (for example, sex or gender);
  4. commercial information (for example, records of purchases made, records of purchases considered, consuming histories and tendencies, purchase transaction receipts, shopping lists); 
  5. internet activity information (for example, information regarding your interactions with a website, application or advertisement, device operating system, browser type‚ referring website, the pages viewed on the website or application, and the application name and version, social profile data); 
  6. geolocation data; and 
  7. inferences drawn from personal information to create a consumer profile (for example, profiles regarding consumer preferences, characteristics, behavior, interests).

6. How We Use Personal Information

While we do not use all the personal information we collect for each purposes below, we may use information for business purposes related to:

Your Account. To create and update your account in our applications, our business records, and rewards programs. 

Communication. To communicate with you about our Services and our offerings.

Business Operations and Continuous Improvement. For business operational needs like accounting, verifying advertisement performance, and other record keeping. We also use it to improve our Services, consider new opportunities in the marketplace, and make improvements to our operations and products.

Advertising. To help our customers deliver more relevant advertising to you in applications, on websites, or across your devices, and to fulfil advertising orders or share consumer attributes, audience segments, and related information with our customers. We use precise location information such as lat/long coordinates collected via mobile applications operated by InMarket or Third Party Partners to deliver relevant advertisements to consumers, provide ad measurement and reporting, and generate market insights.

Consumer Attributes. To generate consumer attributes (for example, “Fast Food Eater” or “Pet Owner”) based on inferences from data we collect. We may augment the data we collect with third party data sets to supplement additional individual attributes.

Audience Segments. To create audience segments used for advertising targeting.  

Analytics and Market Reports. To perform analytics and produce market research reports based on aggregated data.

Security. To protect, defend or investigate potential violations of the Terms of Use for our websites, our applications, or third party applications that integrate our Services. We may also use such information to protect privacy, security, safety, rights, property, and to prevent fraud. 

Legal Compliance. We may use and disclose personal information that we collect to comply with any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, governmental request or legal process. 

 

7. Opt-out of Ad Targeting – Your Choice Mechanisms

InMarket offers consumers the ability to opt-out of our use of information to target ads via browser and mobile devices. If you don’t want the information we collect used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads on third-party websites and mobile applications, we offer a number of choice mechanisms. Please note that none of our choice mechanisms will opt you out of all advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads but they won’t be targeted by us and we will remove opted out browsers or devices from our ad targeting device graph. Your opt-out choice will be applied only to the browser or device that has opted out.

  1. Mobile OS Opt-Out. We honor the mobile device settings for Android and Apple iOS devices. To exercise this opt-out, please visit the privacy settings of your Android or iOS device and select “limit ad tracking” (Apple iOS) or “opt-out of interest based ads” (Android). For devices where we see that such a selection has been made, we will not use information collected from that device to deliver re-targeted advertising.
  2. Mobile Location Choices. If you’d like to adjust your setting regarding the use of precise location data by third parties such as InMarket, you may do so via the privacy settings on your device. This can either be done globally across all apps by turning off Location Services, or for specific apps. Mobile applications that collect precise location information typically offer mechanisms to control the collection and use of precise location information. Please note that these choice mechanisms won’t impact previously collected precise location information.

8. Notice of Financial Incentives

InMarket offers financial incentives to consumers in exchange for the consumer sharing certain personal information with us through websites and applications we own, such as CheckPoints and ListEase (the “InMarket Applications”).

In the CheckPoints application, consumers can earn points redeemable in a rewards program in exchange for various activities such as sharing precise geolocation data (visiting a retail location), scanning product barcodes in a retail location, sharing purchase records, taking surveys, and sharing personal information such as name and email address. In the ListEase application, consumers can earn an entry into a raffle in exchange for sharing personal identifiers such as name and email address and commercial information, such as a scanned copy of a valid retailer purchase receipt. The specific instructions for how to participate and the rewards offered as incentives in each application may vary and are set out within each application. Additional voluntary incentive opportunities may be presented from time to time in the InMarket Applications.

We collect and use the information we obtain through the InMarket Applications to further our business in accordance with our Privacy Policy. We offer an incentive to consumers who provide us with information through the InMarket Applications because it allows us to gain insights into consumer trends and habits. We value the information a consumer provides us through the InMarket Applications as equal to the value of the reward that we provide for sharing the information. InMarket receives a nominal fee for certain completed surveys in the CheckPoints application, which is the basis upon which we value this CheckPoints survey information. Regarding the rest of the data for which we offer an incentive in the InMarket Applications, one consumer’s data has nominal value to us because in large data sets that also include data collected without incentive, the utility and value of the set is only nominally enhanced by the inclusion of one additional entry.

To participate in any of these incentive-based offers you can opt-in by intentionally sharing the required information through the InMarket Applications.

You can opt-out of participation in any of our incentive-based offers at any time. If you wish to opt-out, stop submitting additional information and please submit a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” request or a “Delete My Personal Information” request as described below this Privacy Policy. You may also delete the application.

13. California Residents: CCPA Rights and Requests

If you are a California resident, California state law also provides specific rights regarding our use of your personal information. Our Privacy Policy is intended to comply with CCPA. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning in this Privacy Policy.

14. CCPA: Right to Know 

You have the right to request the categories and the specific pieces of your personal information that we have collected about you in the past 12 months and the sources of such information. You may also request to know how we used your personal information, the categories of information we disclosed or sold and the categories of third parties to which we disclosed or sold it. This right is subject to certain exceptions. To submit a request please complete this Request My Personal Information form, email us at privacy@inmarket.com, or call us toll-free at 1 (888) 506-4042. We may take additional steps to verify your identity before sharing personal information in response to a request.

You have the right to request that we delete your personal information, subject to certain exceptions. To submit a request to delete your personal information, you may complete this Delete My Personal Information form or email us at privacy@inmarket.com.

17. CCPA: Verifiable Consumer Requests

Please submit any requests under the California rights through the means described above. For certain requests, we may need you to provide additional information to verify your request, such as providing additional personal information so that we can verify your identity. We will not use such information for any purpose besides handling your request. You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf in certain circumstances. The designation must be in writing and your agent must be registered with the California Secretary of State. 

We strive to complete all consumer requests within 45 days of receipt. If we require additional time (up to 45 additional days) we will advise you of our need for an extension within the first 45 days.

There is not currently a secure method for verifying consumer requests where we have collected a mobile advertising identifier but have not associated that identifier to a name, email address, or other information sufficient to permit the verification required by the CCPA. 

18. Other Consumer Requests

If you are not a California resident, you may submit privacy requests to privacy@inmarket.com. Please include your name, your email address, your device’s mobile advertising identifier, your state of residence, and the nature of your request. InMarket will comply with its legal obligations with respect to consumer requests. With the exception of requests to opt-out which are governed by the NAI Codes and which we grant to all consumers who request them, requests that are not based on a consumer’s legal rights will be reviewed and may be granted at InMarket’s sole discretion. Granting any such request does not waive InMarket’s rights under applicable law, applicable terms of use, or this Privacy Policy. 

19. Marketing Communications

You have the opportunity to opt-in to marketing communications. You can opt-out of our email lists by following the unsubscribe link included at the bottom of such emails. Depending on our relationship, we may still send you transactional messages, including information about changes to our policies and other important notices. Generally, users cannot opt-out of these communications, but they are informational, not promotional.

This Privacy Policy contains many options for ensuring your privacy. With regard to web browser Do Not Track (DNT) signals, InMarket does not currently monitor or respond to such signals.

20. Data Security and Retention

We incorporate commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative security and safeguards to protect the information we collect. No security system is impenetrable, and we do not guarantee the security of any information. We do not retain personal information for more than 5 years unless it is associated with an active user account. Aggregated reports not containing personal information may be retained beyond 5 years.

21. CCPA: Additional California Residents Notice

CCPA gives California residents additional rights. This section specifically supplements both the general provisions and the CCPA-specific provisions included throughout this Privacy Policy.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
