As the industry’s leading independent provider of ad delivery, creative personalization, and media measurement, we honor consumer notice and choice while helping advertisers improve the quality, relevance, and effectiveness of digital advertising.
We do not buy, sell, or share media or user data. Nor do we profile users, broker audiences, or collect directly-identifiable information, such as a person’s name and email address, or store sensitive data of any sort.
Our products and policies limit our collection and use of personal data to basic identifiers such as cookie IDs, device IDs, IP addresses and geographic locations, which we use for fraud detection, engagement analysis, and advertising delivery and measurement activities that are at the core of our business.
Flashtalking may also use a privacy-oriented, cookieless approach to identify devices for measuring advertising quality and effectiveness. While this technology looks at a number of data signals, it does not collect private or sensitive data from a user’s device. All data is securely stored and protected using industry-certified security and encryption protocols.
Flashtalking fully respects users’ opt-out and privacy preferences. Users can easily opt-out of interest-based creative personalization and all tracking (cookie-based and cookieless) below, or through industry opt-out sites in the US and Europe. Furthermore, Flashtalking is audited annually and monitored continually by the NAI for compliance with their industry-leading privacy guidelines.
