This policy applies to the information Placements, Inc. (“Placements.io”, “we”, “us”, “our”) collects and receives from individuals (“Users” or “you”) who access and interact with the Placements Service (defined below) https://app.placements.io. Placements.io is committed to transparency, and we want you to fully understand how we may collect, use, and share information relating to Users, and the choices that are available to you.
Placements.io has developed a proprietary enterprise software as a service platform designed for media publishers (“Placements Service”). The Placements Service is designed to streamline and automate certain manual business processes that customer publishers undertake in selling their premium direct advertising inventory. Placements.io directly integrates with third parties such as salesforce.com and Google DFP (“Third Party Integration Partners”). With the Placements Service, customer publishers (“Customer”) can create proposals and insertion orders, check inventory availability in real-time and push ad campaigns directly into the ad server. The Placements Service also provides reporting and analytics on both pipeline and actual delivery allowing a publisher to have a better view into the health of their business. The Placements Service further reduces the manual processes required for invoicing by tying both 1st and 3rd party delivery data into the system for revenue and billing calculations.
Placements collects certain information from Users that may be considered “personal data” or personal information” under applicable privacy or data protection laws (“Personal Data”). In particular, we collect general business information from Users such as name, email address, phone, company name and title. We also collect identifiers such as your IP addresses and cookie identifiers. We also collect information about your activity within the Placements Service (collectively, “User Information”).
The Placements Service does not directly identify any Personal Information of Customer’s end- users. Rather, such data is aggregated and pseudonymous when ingested by the Placements Service from Third Party Integration Partners, which means that it does not directly identify people.
User Information may be provided directly into the Placements Service by a User.
