Our Provision of Services to our Clients

While AdFin is an Associate Member of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (the “IAB”) and adheres to the IAB’s core principals regarding data collection and use, AdFin is not an ad server, ad network, or ad exchange. Rather, AdFin provides its clients (each, a “Client”) with market data and analytics related to the real time bidding market for online advertising. Our Clients send us their digital display advertising data on impression volume and pricing. Our technology provides each Client with visualization, price discovery, and analytics on this data. None of this data is Personally Identifiable Information – we have no use for this type of information and contractually require each Client to refrain from sending it to us. Any data about individuals is relevant to us only as it comprises aggregated statistics.

Most of our products are offered as application Services, meaning we host a software application that our Clients access via the worldwide web. Our standard Services include a technical integration with each Client that permits the Client to send data to us; a storage platform for this data; and analytics for this data. We also provide a benchmarking Service that allows participating Clients to contribute their data into an aggregated pool of similar data contributed by other Clients. Each participating Client can compare its own data with aggregated statistics relevant to industry segments. Our products and Services do not involve identifying or targeting individuals.

We require each Client to abide by all applicable laws, rules, and regulations that are applicable to their use of our Services, and we promise each Client that we will do the same with respect to our provision of Services. We ask each Client to ensure they possess all necessary rights to allow us to provide the Services, including without limitation to receive the data that we collect, store and use on such Client’s behalf.

The use of our Services requires a separate written contact with AdFin. If you have a written contract with AdFin for use of the Services, then in the event of any conflicts between that contract and this privacy policy, the terms of that contract shall prevail.
