Reactivpub is highly concerned with the respect for privacy.
What is the role of Reactivpub?
Reactivpub is an ad serving platform (or advertising agency, affiliate platform, ad server): Reactivpub offers its partners or “affiliates” (websites, email database owners, social networks, etc.) to broadcast the advertising campaigns of its clients or “advertisers”. Reactivpub affiliates may choose among different forms of advertising campaigns, such as banners, emails or text links. Reactivpub acts as a broker and trusted third party between you, the affiliates and the advertisers.
In terms of privacy and respect for privacy, each stakeholder (Reactivpub, the affiliates, and the advertisers) is subject to the legislation in force in its country (e.g., the CNIL for the companies subject to French law). Reactivpub nevertheless tries to apply a consistent and rigorous framework with its affiliates and advertisers, compliant with the highest level of confidentiality imposed.
A number of companies have an activity similar to Reactivpub on the Internet: the banner ad you see on a website or the promotional email you receive may come from an advertising campaign run by a company other than Reactivpub. In this case, the management of your personal information is independent from Reactivpub, and we invite you to contact the company responsible for the implementation of the advertising campaign or with the relevant advertiser or affiliate in order to know its privacy management policy and assert your rights.
What personal information about me can be used by Reactivpub to optimize ad targeting?
The objective of Reactivpub is to offer, through its affiliates, advertisements for products or offers that may be of interest to you. To this end, Reactivpub may possibly collect personal data in order to optimize the relevance of its ads.
The fundamental principle of Reactivpub is that the data collected should be anonymous: Reactivpub does not store information such as your surname, name or address. Also, since Reactivpub plays the role of intermediary between you, the affiliates and advertisers, Reactivpub has only access to a limited amount of information about you, usually less than the advertiser or affiliate.
The personal data used by Reactivpub to optimize ad targeting are:
- Your immediate point of origin (source URL or referrer): This is usually the last page you visited before seeing an advertisement broadcast by Reactivpub. The immediate point of origin may the page of a website or the results page of a search engine (see Section 2). Note that this information is not consistently defined and may therefore be unknown to Reactivpub.
- If your immediate point of origin is the results page of a search engine, Reactivpub can use the keywords you used to obtain these search results just before seeing an advertisement broadcast by Reactivpub. The use of these keywords can in some cases help Reactivpub select the most relevant advertising to display.
- The landing page (target URL), i.e., the page to which you have been redirected by clicking on an advertisement for a product or offer. This is generally the page describing the product or offer on the advertiser’s website.
- The list of banner ads that have been displayed to you over the last few days. This information allows Reactivpub to more effectively choose the future advertisements that will be offered to you.
The data collected by Reactivpub are stored as cookies stored on your equipment (computer, mobile, tablet).
