For purposes of this Privacy Shield Policy, the following definitions shall
“Agent” means any third party that collects or uses personal information under the instructions of, and solely for, FMG or to which FMG discloses personal information for use on FMG’s behalf.
“Client” means mobile application provider client of FMG on behalf of which FMG is providing products that optimize the mobile marketplace inclusive of ads and app download environments.
“FMG” means Asignal Networks, Inc. d/b/a FMG, its predecessors, successors, subsidiaries, divisions and groups in the United States.
“Personal information” means any information or set of information that identifies or could be used by or on behalf of FMG to identify an individual. Personal information does not include information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public personal information.
The privacy principles in this Privacy Shield Policy have been developed based on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Principles.
Where FMG collects personal information directly from individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or Switzerland, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses personal information about them, the types of non–agent third parties to which FMG discloses that information, the choices and means, if any, FMG offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of personal information about them, and how to contact FMG. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to FMG, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before FMG uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.
SPECIFICALLY – FMG IS A MARKETING SERVICE COMPANY FOCUSING ON THE MOBILE APPLICATION MARKETPLACE.
FMG buys mobile advertising space on behalf of our Clients which are generally mobile application providers and companies looking to advertise via mobile applications. When you click on a Client ad or application link delivered by FMG, FMG servers receive and store a mobile identifier (“Mobile ID”) which is a pseudonymous number that is associated with your mobile device. FMG cannot use the Mobile ID to identify you personally, but it does enable us to deliver relevant advertising to each mobile device. In addition to the Mobile ID, we collect information about the kind of mobile device you use (e.g., iPhone, Samsung), the operating system for your mobile device (e.g., Android, Apple O/S), IP address, the applications you download from Clients of FMG, when, how, and how often you use those applications.
We use your device’s Mobile ID and other information about Client applications you download to help our Clients understand which ads are most effective at generating downloads of our Client’s applications. We also use your Mobile ID and the information associated with your device Mobile ID over time (e.g., the applications you download, when and how you use those applications, and any publisher-provided demographic data) to enhance our services and to select FMG’ Client ads that are most likely to be of interest to you.
FMG will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-out) via AdChoice Opt Out whether their personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party, or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Individuals with concerns about how their data is being used can contact FMG’s Privacy Officer at the address below.
FMG will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. FMG will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
TRANSFERS TO THE AGENTS
FMG will obtain assurances from its agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Privacy Shield Policy, by means of a contract obligating the agent to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Principles. FMG may be liable for the transfer of personal data to third parties. Where FMG has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Privacy Shield Policy, FMG will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.
We disclose the information in our systems, including your Mobile ID and/or the information associated with your Mobile ID over time for the following purposes:
· To Clients of FMG when you click on their ad and/or download their application;
· In response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena);
· When we, in our sole discretion, believe it is necessary or appropriate, in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, or when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires us to do so.
· In other circumstances when necessary either to protect the rights or property of FMG, Clients of FMG, and third parties.
· We may transfer information to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate change. If FMG is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Website of any change in ownership or uses of your personally identifiable information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your information.
FMG will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
FMG will conduct compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Privacy Shield Policy. Any employee that FMG determines is in violation of this Privacy Shield Policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
LIMITATION ON APPLICATION OF PRINCIPLES
Adherence by FMG to these privacy principles may be limited (a) to the extent required to respond to a legal or ethical obligation; (b) to the extent necessary to meet national security, public interest or law enforcement obligations; and (c) to the extent expressly permitted by an applicable law, rule or regulation.
