Why you should read this privacy statement:
Many website operators and app developers make their content available free of charge. But of course they also have to pay their bills. That’s why they broadcast advertisements to you. We help to place advertisements on websites and in apps. As you know, advertising is often annoying and boring. That’s why we create interactive advertising and try to show you the advertising that is interesting for you.
To accomplish this, however, we need some information about you that the Data Protection Act (DS-GVO) classifies as personal data. If we store personal data about you, this is only an identification number or a cookie that is stored in your browser. We will never be able to find out your name, birthday or address and therefore will not store it. Your personal data will only be processed by us if this is necessary to fulfil the contract, if we or the third party have a legitimate interest in the processing or if you have given your consent.
To ensure that your are well informed about your privacy rights we want
- To inform you about the way in which we use your personal data
- To ensure that you understand what information we collect, what we do with it, and most importantly, do not do with it
- To show us responsible for the protection of your data and rights within the framework of this privacy statement /li>
2. Our service called “LivingAds“
Wagawin provides advertising & marketing services for our Advertiser clients (“Advertisers”). When it comes to mobile advertising, we think interaction matters. Therefore we provide ad formats, called LivingAds, that allow users to interact with advertising content. Our service helps our advertisers’ ads to generate higher awareness and higher performance as we show ads to users that are interacting with advertising content. Furthermore, we aim to make advertising more useful and relevant to users by showing ads that are best tied to their specific interests. Our platform uses interaction data, as well as other data described below, to help Advertisers provide ads to you that are more relevant to you.
3. What personal data we collect
Publishers can choose how to receive LivingAds. No matter if publishers use our SDK or API or provide their traffic programmatically, we collect device and browser information for the purpose described below. This is technical information about the device or browser you use to access the Advertiser’s website. For example, your device’s IP address, cookie string data, operating system, and (in the case of mobile devices) your device type and mobile device’s unique identifier such as the Apple IDFA or Google Advertising ID. Knowing this basic information, we collect certain data about the ads we served (or attempted to serve) to you. It includes things like how many times an ad has been served to you, what page the ad appeared on, and whether you clicked on or interacted with the ad.
4. How we process the personal data we collect
We use this data to help our Advertisers identify and serve ads to you that are more relevant to you. We also use this data to operate, improve and enhance our services including enhancing the data points we or our Advertising Partners have about a particular user, browser, or device to serve the most relevant ads to you and, in turn, improve performance of an Advertiser’s ad campaigns. Specifically, we use this data for:
- Re-Targeting: Selecting ads that are more likely to be relevant to you based on the interests previously associated with your device and the time of day you may be most interested in viewing these specific ads
- Frequency capping: Making sure that you don’t see the same ad too many times
- Sequencing: If you are being served a sequence of ads, making sure we show you the right ad next in the sequence
- Attribution: Monitoring when, where, and at what price we served certain ads on behalf of an Advertiser so that we can measure our influence on the marketing result of the Advertiser’s campaigns and overall marketing strategy
- Reporting: Providing Advertisers insights into how their ads are performing and gain insights into their customers. Reporting may include ad metrics such as impressions, interactions, clicks, and conversions (however the Advertiser may define a “conversion,” for example, a sale or a white paper download).
- Fraud Detection: By using the ad metrics mentioned above, we focus on real users and dismiss fraudulant traffic
- Maintenance: The maintenance of the system and the ongoing operations.
