Ad Delivery Reporting Across Multiple Sites
As part of our ad tracking and reporting, we log page views and collect information for the purpose of providing media analytic services, including tracking types of access device and connection speed, statistical reporting in connection with the dimensions, position of and duration of an ad on a website, and tracking the number of ads served at a particular time to a particular website. To do so, we collect information about the type of browser and operating system of website visitors, as well as the domain name, day and time of visit, and URL(s) visited. We do so across multiple web domains owned or operated by different entities (each, a “Site”).
We collect the information described above by using web beacons, log files, and cookies. We often engage or cooperate with service and technology companies to collect this information. While this tracking and collection technology is commonly used, you might not be familiar with it, and we would like to explain it:
“Web beacons” are electronic files used to track your navigation of the web page on which you saw a given ad that Adelaide is set to track. We do not use web beacons for their other typical purposes, such as the completion of transactions, and submittal of applications.
“Log files” track actions occurring on websites and collect data including your IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and types of advertisements viewed.
Adelaide works with ad exchange platforms to place cookies on your computer. “Cookies” are files (e.g. HTTP cookies) that your Internet enabled device (which includes your computer, tablet, or mobile device) can store. Adelaide does occasionally work with a third party to send consumers an in-browser survey, that is unobtrusive and optional, for quality purposes. Not all people who see an ad that Adelaide interacts with will get a cookie. We abide by the cookie policies of the third-party that helps us with this, and we audit them for safe handling of cookie data. The cookie will only be used for the purposes of this momentary quality survey. You can learn more about cookies on the Internet Advertising Bureau’s website: http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
We use the information we collect to determine which media is best at yielding a quality and efficient experience with online ads, to assist us in improving the operation of our services, to maintain the quality of our services, to enhance our services to our business partners and clients, to provide general statistics to our business partners and clients regarding use of Adelaide’s services, and for the other purposes described below.
Personally Identifiable Information
Adelaide does not collect or use Personally Identifiable Information (PII) common to Interest-Based Advertising (IBA). PII is any information that identifies you or can be used to identify you. This includes, but is not limited to, your name, telephone number, address, email address, and date of birth. Adelaide does not collect PII.
Adelaide will not collect PII unless you choose to provide it to us, such as if you choose to do so as part of your interaction with Customer Forms, or Employment Forms, on the Adelaidemetrics.com corporate site.
Examples of such Customer or Employment Forms include but are not limited to: registration forms to access Adelaide published white papers or Adelaide produced webinars, forms providing customer contact information when requesting information from Adelaide and forms to apply for open employment opportunities within Adelaide.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information or Non-PII is data that is linked or reasonably linkable to a particular computer or device, but is not PII, including, but not limited to: your IP address, web pages which you have viewed, and your responses to surveys. This information may be collected using different types of internet technologies, such as cookies (see “Internet Technology” above for more details).
Adelaide may collect this information when you are visiting the Adelaide corporate site or any website where we track the ads of Advertisers. However, this information is not combined with PII.
Information Obtained From Other Companies
Sharing Your Information
Information provided on Employment forms are only used internally by Adelaide and may disclose PII to third parties under the following circumstances (1) to comply with applicable laws and regulations or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information received by us, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law requiring such disclosure; (b) protect the rights or property of Adelaide; (c) prevent a crime or protect national security or (d) protect the personal safety of the users or the public.
In the event that Adelaide is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from you as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your information is treated, transferred, or used.
Information Collected By Third Party Sites
Please be aware that the Sites of our advertiser clients as well as the Sites on which we track advertisements or any Site linked to from one of our websites also may collect information from you. These are independent third parties, not affiliated with Adelaide, who we do not form any collaborative nor meshed service offering. Although we choose our business partners and clients carefully, Adelaide is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites operated by such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of such websites you visit to determine how they handle any information they collect from you, and the scope of that information. We make you aware of these third parties as a courtesy.
Our survey partner may use cookie technology, for purposes outlined above. If you have cookies disabled, if you delete your cookies, or if other software deletes the cookies used for that data storage, such data is lost because it is not retained separately by Adelaide. The cookies that store data will in any case expire, at latest, one year after the last time such information is stored, barring any technical malfunction.
Adelaide is committed to providing consumers notice and choice regarding IBA. Adelaide offers an “opt-out option” for those that wish to opt-out of any Adelaide IBA activities. This option will honor your IBA preferences for a period of up to 1 year. If you have multiple Internet browsers or users on the same device, you will need to perform the opt-out operation for each browser and/or user. If you or your anti-virus or other software clears information from your device, if you re-install your browser, or if you delete your cookies (which can happen if you clear or delete your browser history), then you may need to repeat this process. Adelaide may be unable to provide you with an opt-out cookie if your browser is set to block third-party cookies. To opt-out of IBA, please use our opt-out tool from the mobile device that you wish to disable tracking on. That can be found here or at http://www.adelaidemetrics.
Please report any problems related to the opt-out process to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further, Adelaide does not collect or use for the purpose of IBA, data that is considered personal data or sensitive personal data under the respective national implementations of the EU Directive 95/46/EC.
Adelaide is very sensitive to the issue of children’s privacy. Adelaide’s products and services are neither developed for, nor directed at, children. Adelaide does not employ or offer advertising targeting towards children under the age of 13. If you believe your child has provided us with PII through the Adelaide corporate site or through our corporate marketing materials, please contact us and we will delete any such data.
Adelaide employs industry-standard measures to ensure the security of all information. We routinely evaluate our practices to identify security threats or opportunities for the improvement of our services. No transmission of information is guaranteed to be completely secure. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise data security. You acknowledge and agree to assume these risks when communicating with us.
The Site and information we maintain is controlled, stored and operated within the United States and is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. By using this Site and submitting any information you consent to the transfer and storage of information to the United States.

The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. You can send a request through firstname.lastname@example.org.
