This Privacy Policy explains the privacy practices for the mediaQuant website (the “Website”) located at www.mediaquant.net; what information of yours will be collected by us when you use the Website; and how the information will be used. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does NOT govern the information and data that we may collect from subscribers to our proprietary media measurement and analytics products (“Products” or “Product”). Our commitments pertaining to mediaQuant Products are contained in the applicable end user license agreement. In addition, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources.

A cookie may also convey anonymous information about how you browse the Website to us. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. mediaQuant uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Website, to provide information and services, and to help us better understand your needs and interests.

We use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Website; (b) provide custom, content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our Website; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and traffic; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with certain IP addresses; and (f) help you efficiently access information.

You also consent to our using your email address to send you Website-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. We may also use your contact information to send you other messages, such as newsletters, changes to features of the Website, or special offers. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages and our responses.

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Website’s forums, message boards or similar publicly accessible areas becomes available to the public. mediaQuant is not responsible for personally identifiable information and data contributions that you choose to disclose publicly on the Website.

HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

mediaQuant does not share your personally identifiable information with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use. In the future, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings from third parties. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers or dissolution. From time to time, we may enter into relationships with third parties who provide services to us (e.g., data management and storage services or credit card processing services). In those circumstances, we disclose personally identifiable information that is necessary for such service providers to perform those services.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, mediaQuant will not disclose personal information to any third party unless required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law, comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, or investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities; (b) to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, or to protect the security or integrity of our Website or the mediaQuant Products and Promotions; and (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of mediaQuant, our employees, agents or assigns, or others.

We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for the Website.

We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of mediaQuant (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

YOUR CHOICES ABOUT YOUR INFORMATION

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Website, in which case certain mediaQuant products, promotions and services may not be available to you.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Information collected from you may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which mediaQuant or its affiliates, subsidiaries, agents or contractors maintain facilities. If you are accessing the Website from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your data to the United States and processing globally.
