Overview of Eyeview Services
Eyeview offers services that are designed to help our customers, who are usually advertisers, but might be ad agencies, other ad platforms, or ad networks (“Customers”) deliver relevant content, emails, and tailored advertising and promotions, including those tailored to geographic areas. The Eyeview advertising services are collectively referred to as the “Services.”
If you’d like to opt-out from having ads tailored to you by Eyeview (whether through web or mobile delivery mechanisms), please follow the instructions in the “Your Choices” section below.
1. The Information We Collect and Use In Providing Our Services
We are able to provide more relevant content and targeted advertising by collecting certain information about you, including when you interact with our Services. This may include your interactions with (a) our Customers and their advertisements, or (b) other web or mobile-based companies and marketing platforms, such as website content providers and mobile app developers, and platforms that aggregate their data (including Data Providers, as defined below). We may do this by using automated technologies such as cookies, including non-HTTP cookies, pixel tags, mobile identifiers and SDKs, each of which we describe below, and in the Section titled, “What are “cookies,” “pixel tags,” and “SDKs,” and how do we use them?”
We collect and use the following Information in providing our Services:
Information from marketing companies and other third party data providers (such as website content providers and mobile app developers, or other advertising platforms) (“Data Providers”) regarding their site visitors or app users, customers, or others. This may include information about consumers’ actual or presumed demographics, interests or purchase behavior, as well as information about their interactions with websites and apps (including, for example, when they visited the pages, the content they viewed, and the links and ads that they clicked).
Transactional information from our Customers. Our Customers may provide us with non-personally identifiable information about you to help us better perform our services.
Log information. When you visit a Customer’s or Data Provider’s website where our Services are deployed, our servers automatically record non-personally identifiable information that your browser sends. These server logs include information such as Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer), the date and time, whether one of our cookies is already set on your browser, your browser type, the website (or mobile application) you are interacting with, and your interactions with our services, such as clicks on ads. Your IP address provides us the ability to infer your geographic location information.
Mobile data. Through mobile applications on which our Services are deployed, including applications operated by our Customers, Data Providers (or companies that they receive information from), we likewise may collect information about your interactions with other applications (including your IP address and time-stamp information), and information about your mobile device (including device type, handset name, operating system information, mobile identifiers such as Apple IDFA and Android Advertising ID, app-specific identifiers, and a list of the applications your device interacts with).
The mobile information we collect or receive from our Data Providers and Customers also may include geolocation information, which may be precise, that may help us or our Customers to target ads or tailor content to your precise location. For instance, if we believe that you are often near a particular store in Northern Jersey, we might send you an ad targeted to that store, rather than another store in the general area.
2. How Do We Use and Share the Information We Collect?
We may use this information to help Eyeview show personalized or other customized advertisements that are more likely to be relevant to you. We also use the information to review the use of our Services and to improve them, as well as to develop new services.
For example, data collected about users may be used to create data segments that may then be used in our Services, such as to tailor advertising and content. These data segments may be based on your activity across multiple websites or mobile apps over time, on your transactions, on your location, or on data derived from offline demographic and interest data. Generally, the tailoring of ads to devices and browsers (and sometimes through other channels) based on this type of data is called “interest-based” or “personalized” advertising. (Please go to section 3(c) to learn about what choices you have, in control how you are marketed to in this way.) Thus, if you provide us information through our Services (including through our Data Providers or a Customer) that indicates to us that you enjoy movies, outdoors, we may then send ads regarding new movies or movie theaters in your area, matched to your browser or device (or a browser or device we believe may be yours). Or, we may create data models that indicate that many users with similar attributes to you (such as geographic or interest-based) seem to like the outdoors – and we may then send them ads regarding outdoor gear or travel ideas, based on that same data model.
Sometimes, we integrate our information with other platforms and partners, to allow advertisers to access our non-personally identifiable information, websites and mobile developers we have relationships with, or our Customers’ users, or in conjunction with other analytics or marketing services they provide. This might be done, for instance, by “synching” unique identifiers (generally a coded string of data), in order to permit data that we collect to be used by these platforms and their own customers. Likewise, sometimes we may obtain from other platforms data they have collected, such as browser or mobile identifiers, and associated information; this process, too, may involve a sharing of unique identifiers in order to create this “sync.” We may do this to permit our own Customers to have access to this data, or to improve the accuracy of the information that we use and make available. Sometimes, we may use or make available the information we collect or receive to recognize unique browsers or devices or try to resolve a commonality of users (or households) across platforms or across devices, such as smartphones, computers, tablets or related browsers. For instance, we (or a Data Provider or Customer we work with) might infer that a common IP address seen across different devices represents a common user, and use that inference in tailoring ads. We also often work with other web-based and mobile-based platforms to help tailor online and mobile ads, including certain providers that work with both cookie and non-cookie-based technologies to recognize browsers, and to unify them with other browsers and devices that are likely being used by the same person or household.
We may share aggregated, non-personal, general information, such as how users interact with our or our Customers’ services, how many users clicked on or responded to a particular ad, or other aggregated, anonymous, de-identified or averaged results relating to advertising campaigns and related Customer transactions.
3. What are “Cookies,” “Pixel Tags,” and “SDKs,” and How Do We Use Them?
Cookies are small data files that contain a string of characters, such as a unique browser identifier. Cookies are stored on your computer or other device and act as coded tags that identify your device. Our servers send your device a cookie when you visit or use a Customer or Data Provider website or mobile application. A pixel tag (also commonly known as a web beacon or clear GIF) is an invisible 1 x 1 pixel that is placed on certain web pages. When you access these web pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of the visit and permit us to set or read our cookies. Pixel tags are used in combination with cookies to track the activity on a site by a particular device. When you turn off cookies, pixel tags simply detect a website visit.
b. Disabling Cookies
Please keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these techniques, and those browser settings that block conventional cookies may have no effect on such techniques.
d. Mobile Device Identifiers and SDKs.
We also sometimes use, or partner with publishers or publisher-facing and app developer platforms that use mobile SDKs to collect information, such as mobile identifiers (e.g., IDFAs and Android Advertising IDs), and information connected to how mobile devices interact with our Services and those using our Services. A mobile SDK is the mobile app version of a pixel tag or beacon (see “Pixel Tags or Beacons” above). The SDK is a bit of computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related services to be implemented. We may use this technology to deliver certain advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your mobile device. If you’d like to opt-out from having ads tailored to you in this way on your mobile device, please follow the instructions in the “Choices” section below.
4. Your Choices: How To Opt-Out of Tracking (Interest-Based Advertising) on Web Browsers and Mobile Devices

To learn more about Interest-Based Advertising or to opt-out of this type of interest-based advertising by those third parties that are members of DAA’s opt-out program, please go to https://www.aboutads.info/. Eyeview also is a member of the NAI and adheres to the (current) NAI Code of Conduct. To learn more about the NAI and its members, or to opt out of interest-based advertising facilitated by NAI members, please go to http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1.

Please review those providers’ websites, to learn how their tools operate.)
b. Opt-out Cookies and Safari Users. When you opt out, we will place a cookie on your browser instructing us not to use your other online behaviors to customize the ads you see. Please note that if you opt out, you will receive a persistent cookie that tells us not to recognize your browser to serve relevant ads. Therefore, if you manually delete your cookies, you will delete the opt-out cookie as well. In addition, if you buy a new computer or change Web browsers, you’ll need to perform the opt-out task again. Please also note that if you are using a Safari browser, opt-out cookies that are set for purposes of restricting this type of advertising may be deleted prior to their intended expiration date; we have no control over these browser controls or cookie deletions.
You may opt out of mobile app interest-based advertising through your mobile device settings, as described below, and as applicable to most (but not necessarily all) mobile devices. When you do this, we will no longer use information collected through your mobile apps to deliver behaviorally targeted advertising to your device. Please note that you will continue to receive advertising after you opt-out, but it may not be tailored to your interests.
c. Viewed Content Advertising and Smart-TVs
We may sometimes receive data from connected or “smart” TVs or OTT devices (such as Roku, Playstation, or other internet-connected devices used with televisions) in order to target or help our customers target personalized advertising on those devices, other devices, or browsers. To learn how to opt out from the collection or use of that data for Personalized Advertising, please refer to the privacy settings for your Roku, Playstation, or other OTT device.
Opting Out on iOS Devices Such as iPhones, iPads or iPods
