WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT, AND WHY?
1 Market Media serves advertisements on behalf of hundreds of third party advertisers across numerous publisher websites and mobile applications. 1 Market Media also assists our clients who operate websites to present customized content that is believed to be more relevant to you.
When you visit a website or mobile application (“app”) where 1 Market Media is delivering ads, or the site or app of a customer 1 Market Media serves ads on behalf of, or a site or app where 1 Market Media is facilitating custom content, 1 Market Media may collect information about your online activities and approximate location in order to show you relevant advertising and content. 1 Market Media is exposed to device latitude and longitude data passed to us via programmatic media buying opportunities, which in some cases may describe a precise location. 1 Market Media may store this location information however it is rendered imprecise prior to use for targeted advertising. We may collect information such as which ads have been shown you, on which pages, and how you responded to them. We may collect information about your interactions with customer sites—for example, by placing tags on an advertiser’s web site to measure purchase events for items they had worked with 1 Market Media to advertise or tags on a web publisher’s site to measure your interest in particular types of content. Due to the underlying mechanics of the Internet, 1 Market Media is exposed to information about your device, such as IP address, unique device identifiers, browser type and language settings, and operating system information.
None of the following technologies are used to identify individual people. Rather, they are used to uniquely identify a device or a browser within a certain level of confidence that enables 1 Market Media to serve more relevant ads and / or custom content.
We set our browser cookies to expire after two years. The cookie expiration date will be updated each time a browser requests resources from our server. Device level segment data inside the cookie may be retained for the lifetime of the cookie, in the cookie, however data stored inside the cookie is aged, and often will be deleted in a period of hours or days. We collect Non-PII segmentation data (data which cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual) in server log files. These logs are processed daily for aggregated ad delivery and reporting summaries. The data in the log files cannot be tied to specific browsers. The summarized reports are kept indefinitely.
If you are concerned about cookies, it is possible to turn them off in your web browser preferences. However, please be aware that by disabling cookies, your web surfing experience will be degraded.
We may use IP (internet protocol) addresses to undertake aggregate browser statistics, determine the approximate location of browsers, diagnose problems with our servers, and optimize and administer our services.
We may track and analyze Non-PII usage and browsing patterns of visitors to customer’s websites to provide our advertisers with more targeted advertising opportunities and to help users see advertising that is most likely to interest them. We may also use this information to assist our customers in presenting customized and more relevant content.
Statistical IDs are created via an algorithm using non-personally identifiable and pseudonymous information about a computer or device. The information used may include the operating system, user-agent string, Web browser, approximate location, installed fonts, and similar information. This information makes your computer or device distinct enough for our systems to determine within a reasonable probability that they are encountering the same computer or device. These IDs are not used to target advertisements, and are only used for campaign analytics and reporting purposes. It should be noted that browser controls do not affect statistical IDs. Statistical IDs rapidly become obsolete, and generally lose their linkage to a distinct device in less than one month.

These identifiers are commonly used to help enable digital advertising across mobile applications. The operating systems that provide these mobile advertising identifiers tend to include built-in settings to express privacy preferences for online advertising across applications.
