Information about our Services.
What Information Do We Collect for Our Services?
As described in more detail below, we collect and combine a variety of information to provide Services to our clients and business partners. When providing our Services, we do not seek to collect personal information such as any individual’s name, birthdate, phone number, social security number, payment card number, address, or other information that might directly identify individuals. We do not seek to collect information that we consider to be sensitive, including but not limited to: details of past, present, or potential health status, medical conditions, or medical treatments; genetic information; family medical histories; financial account numbers or other financial account identifiers; political and religious beliefs and/or affiliations; interest in or use of adult products or services; and illegal activities. Regardless of the source of the information, if we learn that we have collected information that we consider to be sensitive, we take reasonable steps to promptly delete the information from our systems.
Carrier Data. We partner with wireless carriers to provide us with certain information regarding their subscribers’ online activities and their subscribers’ locations (collectively, “Carrier Data”). We do not attempt to determine the identities of subscribers that are associated with Carrier Data. We implement internal policies and procedures that are designed to prevent the identification of subscribers, and we require wireless carriers to take steps that help prevent the identification of subscribers.
Carrier Data in the general case may include masked (i.e., obfuscated) subscriber identifiers.
In Europe, Teralytics works only with anonymized location data. In the US and Asia, we may receive location data of various granularity as provided by the wireless carrier as well as a partial record of subscribers’ online activities. The latter may contain information about most visited domains (i.e., websites like espn.com), website sections (e.g., edition.cnn.com), mobile applications and other services) that a subscriber’s device accesses.
How Do We Use Information Collected for our Services?
We use Carrier Data to operate, maintain, enhance, provide, and protect our Services. This includes:
- Analyzing mobility patterns;
- Generating aggregated statistical reports (e.g. aggregate commuting patterns to inform public transportation, city governments and mobility services);
- Improving our Services and developing new features or offerings;
- Honoring opt-out requests;
- Troubleshooting our Services; and
- Engaging in internal research.
Additional Uses of Information Collected for our Services in the US
In the US, we may additionally use Carrier Data for:
- Inferring the interests of users based on obfuscated identifiers, location data, domain visits, and other information we may collect from wireless carriers and data partners; We do not offer location information to advertisers for geographical areas smaller than 1/3 square miles;
- Providing our customers with information about user interests to support personalization, interest-based advertising, location-based advertising (subject to the geographical restriction mentioned above), and research;
- Supporting advertising delivery and reporting.
We may combine or aggregate some, any or all of the information we collect through our Services for any of the above mentioned purposes.
We do not retain information collected for our Services for longer than is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected. In any event, we do not retain the collected information for longer than five years unless: (i) the data is modified so that it cannot reasonably be linked to a device or individual; (ii) we are legally required to retain the information for longer than five years (e.g., to comply with a court order); or (iii) the information is retained solely to honor an individual’s opt-out request or other stated preference. Further, certain information, including Carrier Data that includes device level web browsing or other device activity information outside of movement patterns, is deleted or de-identified not later than after six (6) months, unless we are legally required to maintain the data.
How Do We Share Information Collected from our Services?
We may share information collected from or received through our Services:
- With affiliates, clients and business partners, service providers, or other entities that provide services to us in connection with our business operations; and
When we share information, we take reasonable steps to prohibit recipients from attempting to identify the individuals who may be represented in the data. However, we cannot guarantee that recipients will never do so.
We do not share precise location information we may receive from wireless carriers with third parties for their own use unless we are legally required to do so.
We may share statistics and information derived from or based on location information for marketing research and related purposes only after aggregating or de-identifying information and taking steps to prevent recipients from being able to reasonably identify individuals or their devices.
In some circumstances, we may share information with third parties that may have a reasonable need to identify individuals who may be represented in the data. For example, we may share information:
- For purposes of coordinating with wireless carriers and other third parties to honor interest-based advertising opt outs;
- With third parties when we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to protect the legal rights, safety, and security of Teralytics, our affiliates, business partners, or users of our Sites and Services;
- To prevent fraud;
- To comply with or respond to a court order, law or legal process, or request for cooperation by a government or other entity; and
- To respond to and resolve complaints.
In addition, we may share information that cannot reasonably be linked to particular individuals or devices with third parties for other purposes. For example, we may share aggregated statistics with third parties for reporting or research purposes.
Additional Sharing of Information Collected for our Services in the US
In the US only, we may share data with advertisers and other companies that use the information we provide about online activities and locations to support statistical research or interest-based advertising, or location-based advertising. When we share location information to support interest-based advertising, we do not share location information that is both: 1) attributable to a particular individual or device identifier, and 2) more precise than 1/3 square mile.
What Choices Do You Have About Information Collected for Our Services?
Additional Choices for Information Collected for our Services in the US
You can register your preference to not have Carrier Data used for interest-based or location-based advertising with your wireless carrier in the US. If you take this step, we will not use data from your wireless carrier for these purposes.
You can also select "Limit Ad Tracking" on Apple iOS or "Opt-out of interest-based ads" on Google Android, which signals to advertisers and ad delivery companies that you do not wish to receive targeted advertisements.
We are committed to providing people with access to and information about choice mechanisms that allow people to register their preferences regarding how our Services may be used to support and deliver interest-based advertising.
