We collect, use, deploy and share Analytics Information, using various tracking technologies, including cookies.
1. What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file containing a string of characters that is placed by an Internet server on your device. Cookies can be either session cookies or persistent cookies, and Smarketing Cloud serves both types. A session cookie is deleted from your device automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your device for a specified period of time and may be accessed by Smarketing Cloud on subsequent visits by you to Digital Media Properties operated by our customers.
Cookies are useful because they help us ensure that the video advertisements you see online when you visit our customers’ Digital Media Properties are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies do not typically identify you as an individual, just the device you are using. For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

3. Other Technologies
Cookies are not the only way we recognize or track visitors to the YuMe Platform. We may also use other, similar technologies from time to time to store and retrieve Analytics Information from a User’s device, including:
Pixel Tags or Web Beacons. A tracking pixel (also known as a “web beacon” or “clear gif”) is a tiny transparent graphics file (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a web page and, in combination with a cookie, allows for the collection of information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel. We use tracking pixels to tell when an advertisement has been clicked on or otherwise interacted with, and use that information to judge which advertisements are more appealing to Users. In some cases, we use third party service providers to help us collect and analyze this information.
4. Third-Party Cookies
Smarketing Cloud seeks to work with Digital Media Property Owners and other third parties that comply with all applicable privacy laws with respect to activities that relate to their relationship with us, but ultimately does not have control over such third parties and the cookies they place, so we suggest that you review their respective privacy policies to help you understand what data these organizations hold about you and what they do with it.
5. Your Choices
How to control which cookies are set
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. There are a number of ways you can manage what cookies are set on you devices.

Browser-Based Data Collection
You may opt out of the use of YuMe cookies for purposes of delivering more relevant advertising on your browser by doing any one of the following:
Visiting opt-outs of standard bodies. YuMe is a member of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) and the Internet Advertising Bureau (“IAB”) and adheres to each organization’s principles (the NAI Codes of Conduct, the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising and the IAB’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising, respectively). You can opt-out of Smarketing Cloud targeted advertising based on data collected via your browser by using (a) the NAI’s opt-out tool, which can be found here; or (b) the DAA’s opt-out tool, which can be found here.
In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
When you opt out, we will stop serving you targeted ads based on the data collected via your browser.
We will subsequently place a piece of data in your browser’s cookie that tells us that you have opted out of YuMe; it does not contain any data about you except for the fact that you have opted out. We need this cookie in place so that we know not to collect information about your interests and serve you interest-based targeted ads in the future.
Mobile Application-Based Data Collection
Devices with iOS 6 and above use Apple’s Advertising Identifier. To learn more about limiting ad tracking using this identifier, visit the Settings menu on your device as follows:
iOS 7 or higher – Choose Settings > Privacy > Advertising
iOS 6 – Choose Settings > General > About > Advertising
If you have an Android device and would like to opt-out of mobile interest-based or “cross-app” advertising, you may do so as follows:
- Open the Google Settings app on your device.
- Select Ads.
- Opt out of interest-based ads.
Our systems are designed to respect these choices transmitted by your Android device.
Please click here for an even more comprehensive and up-to-date description of how to opt out from your particular device.
When you opt out, we will stop serving you targeted ads based on the data collected via your mobile applications.
Please note that opting out of either Browser-Based or Mobile Application-Based Data Collection does not mean you will not see ads online from YuMe or other digital advertising companies, but only that YuMe will not tailor ads based on your interests.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that Users may set in certain web browsers. DNT is intended to allow Users another method of informing websites and services that they do not want certain information about their website visits collected over time and across websites.
Because the effect of DNT signals remains unclear, and there continues to be no consistent industry understanding of how to respond to such a signal, we do not alter our privacy practices when we detect a DNT signal from your browser. Rather, we provide or respect the other consumer choice options set forth in this Section.
