RealTechNetwork - Privacy Policy

 

Effective date: April 2, 2007

The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you of what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit a site with RealTechNetwork ad serving platform and services, how we may use that information, when information may be disclosed to anyone, and the choices you have regarding whether and how we gather and use information related to you.
 
I. We do not directly collect personal information.
 
We do not directly collect Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information generally includes information that could be used by us to determine the identity of an online consumer, such as name, address, phone number and email address. You should note that we do not have the ability to prevent our clients from using our technology to collect Personally Identifiable Information about users of their Web sites. For example, some of our clients may use our technology solutions in conjunction with an e-commerce system where providing Personally Identifiable Information is necessary to complete a transaction. We require our clients to comply with applicable laws governing online privacy and encourage them to publish privacy policies that tell you about how the information they are gathering is being used. We encourage you always to read the privacy policies of the Web sites you visit to understand issues relating to your online privacy.
 
We may collect non-Personally Identifiable Information ("Non- Personally Identifiable Information ") to help our clients better determine which advertisements or content to show or not to show you. Non- Personally Identifiable Information may include information such as the type of Internet browser used by an online user, the type of computer operating system used and the domain name of the Web site visited by the user as well as information related to Web sites and Web pages a user is viewing when an advertisement is requested, the location of the user's Internet service provider's point of presence, the date and time of a visit to a Web site, search keywords passed from another server, the number of times a user has clicked on an advertisement or other interactions between a user and a Web site.
 
II. Our technology solutions employ cookies to gather non personally identifiable information.
 
Generally, when you see an ad served by RealTechNetwork on a Web site, we have been retained by a client Web site to provide services including ad delivery and/or reporting on their Web site. In connection with providing these services, we employ cookies under our Internet domains, such as RealTechNetwork.com, as well as those under the domains of other ad-serving technology vendors to more effectively serve our clients and help them better determine which advertisement to show or not to show you. We serve a unique cookie for each customer. Other third party ad-serving technology vendors use their own unique cookies. In the process of delivering an advertisement, we and other third party ad-serving technology vendors automatically recognize certain Non- Personally Identifiable Information that is linked to a particular cookie. We only use data collected via our cookies for purposes authorized by our client. To learn more about the practices of third party ad servers in general, or to get opt out cookies from advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), please click here.

III. We encourage all companies with which we do business to engage in fair information practices.
 
We require our clients to create privacy policy statements and to provide Internet users with conspicuous access to their privacy policy statements. Additionally, we require that our clients disclose any and all information that is being collected from Internet users on their Web sites, including data gathered from banners and other forms of advertising, as well as content delivered or other transactions occurring on their Web sites. Although we cannot monitor every transaction tracked by each of our many clients and match it to each respective client's privacy policy, we periodically monitor the Web sites of our clients to determine whether they are adequately disclosing and updating their privacy statements.
 
IV. The promises we make about information you give us online should be upheld.
 
We may change our privacy policy as new products are added or old ones are changed, but we endeavor to treat information we possess (including information collected from this Web site), in a manner consistent with the policy under which it was collected. If part or all of our assets or business operations are acquired or otherwise transferred, we will take steps to assure that these same principles continue to apply to the acquiring company.
 
V. Questions and concerns.
 
You can address your general questions, concerns, comments and complaints to PrivacyQuestions @ RealTechNetwork.com.
 
How is data collected using our technology & services?
 
RealTechNetwork provides technology and services that allows Web publishers and advertisers to serve advertisements. We use unique "cookies" that enable our clients to more effectively use our services to build relationships with their online customers.
 
What are cookies?

Cookies are very small computer files delivered to a user's computer, by or on behalf of our clients, when that user's Internet browser views one of our client's advertisements. Cookies are associated with a specific computer and a specific Internet browser. You can think of a cookie as a file containing a note saying, "This Internet browser was here at this time." It tells our clients that a user's Internet browser has viewed a client's advertisements at a specific time. Cookies delivered by us and by other ad-serving technology vendors that we use on behalf of our clients, do not include your name, address, phone number, email address or other Personally Identifiable Information. The cookie contains a unique number assigned to your Internet browser to tell our clients that they've seen that browser at a Web site where they advertise. Typically, when our clients hire us to deliver ads on their behalf, we assign a cookie to every user who visits a Web site where a client's ad is placed. We also may use cookies to limit the amount of times you see a particular ad.
 
What data is collected using our technology?
 
We May Collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information (Non- Personally Identifiable Information)
 
We may collect non-Personally Identifiable Information ("Non- Personally Identifiable Information ") to better determine which ads to show you. Non- Personally Identifiable Information may include information such as the type of Internet browser used by an online user, the type of computer operating system used and the domain name of the Web site visited by the user as well as information related to Web sites and Web site sections a user is viewing when an advertisement is requested, the location of the user's Internet service provider's point of presence, the date and time of a visit to a Web site, search keywords passed from another server, the number of times a user has clicked on an advertisement or other interactions between a user and a Web site.
 
Specifically, when an Internet user visits a Web site where one of our client's advertisements is displayed, cookies are delivered to help collect Non- Personally Identifiable Information about the user's visit. Our ad serving platform is also capable of collecting content variables based on such pages visited and the time of visit. We help our clients collect information about how many times users view and click on our clients' advertisements and whether or not a user visits specific pages of a client advertiser's Web site. In doing so, we may collect the user's IP address, Internet browser type and version as well as the type and version of their computer's operating system and, in some cases, keywords entered into search engines. We also may cross-reference IP addresses with databases maintained by our vendors to generate general location information about IP addresses.
 
We do not directly collect personally identifiable information.
 
We do not directly collect Personally Identifiable Information. However, a client may be able to use our technology to collect a variety of information, including Personally Identifiable Information. We also may be asked by a client to collect Personally Identifiable Information on its behalf using cookies. We use information provided by the client, as well as information that we collect on behalf of the client, only to create segments and reports for the client. Additionally, we make information that we collect or receive from a particular client available only to that client. A client may correlate or merge information that we report to it with Personally Identifiable Information already collected or accessible by that client from sources that do not include us. On behalf of a client, we may correlate information provided by the client with Non- Personally Identifiable Information that we collect for that client. Our clients are responsible for notifying you whether they correlate or merge Personally Identifiable Information to Non- Personally Identifiable Information that they collect or that we or any other third party collects on their behalf. Our clients represent to us that they comply with applicable laws and industry standards regarding online privacy.
 
What data is collected though our network?
 
RealTechNetwork provides advertising services to companies that have Web sites and to companies that wish to advertise on the Web. One way of selling advertising for Web sites is to group together sites that have a similar "content" or similar attributes in order to serve the same ad across multiple small sites. We call these groups of sites "channels" and sell advertising on these Web sites. Other larger, Web sites may stand alone and operate independently with respect to advertising sales on their sites. Our RealTechNetwork comprises our network which includes brand-name sites and niche sites that provide advertisers with a broad "reach" by attracting many different Internet users, and other larger, branded Web sites with whom we have relationships.
 
Please note that our Privacy Policy applies only to our operation of the RealTechNetwork Publisher Network and not to the operations of Web sites with which we may do business. We encourage you to always read the privacy policies of the Web sites you visit. If you have particular concerns about any Web site advertising with RealTechNetwork with respect to privacy issues, please contact PrivacyQuestions @ RealTechNetwork.com.
 
With whom do we share this information?
 
We may share information collected about Internet users with our clients only in accordance with these privacy policies. Other than with respect to information specific to a client, we do not collect or sell the ownership of Personally Identifiable Information or Non- Personally Identifiable Information for our own commercial purposes. From time to time, we may publish or report aggregate statistics related to our business. When we report or publish such statistics, we do not include or reveal any information about users.
 
The anonymous information that we collect on behalf of our clients is useful only to the specific advertisers who employ us to deliver ads, and only in the context of our selection of ad-content and our reporting of ad-effectiveness to our client.  We recommend that you visit our clients' Web sites to review their privacy policies and contact them directly if you have questions about their information practices. Our clients typically warrant that the information they receive shall be used in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We recommend that you visit our clients' Web sites to review their privacy policies and contact them directly if you have questions about their information practices.
 
We may also disclose certain information in response to subpoenas, court orders or legal process.
