WHAT IS GOBID

Gobid is an advertising technology platform. We are providing this Privacy Policy to inform you about how our technology platform processes information on behalf of online advertisers, website owners, data providers and other businesses that use our technology and services.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us using the contact details from the CONTACTING US section.

Gobid runs a technology buying platform for digital media. The Gobid technology allows our customers to buy ad space on websites, mobile apps, video players, and other devices. When ad space is bought or sold our technology fulfils the transaction by delivering the ad to Internet users who visit that site, apps, or device. Generally, an Internet user’s computer or mobile device comes into contact with Gobid technology when a user views an ad delivered by our technology or clicks or taps on the ad to visit the advertiser’s website or app.

PRIVACY PRACTICES FOR OUR TECHNOLOGY

Advertising supports free content and digital user experiences that we all love. Our goal is to make advertising more effective by helping to display ads that may be of interest to you. We believe that relevant ads are more valuable to users than less relevant ads. More relevance also helps the services that depend on advertising because advertisers pay more for effective ads which in turn leads to higher quality and richer consumer experiences.

With regard to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), Gobid acts as a Data Processor for our customers. Our customers are obligated to get proper consent from end consumers in order to use any personal data within our system. For example, if a Gobid customer is using cookies collected on the customer’s website to retarget users with ads, the customer is obligated to have the proper consent for the use of that data within Gobid’s system and to respect opt-outs and the other obligations under the GDPR.

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal data from you only where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights; where we need the personal data to perform a contract with you or where we have your consent to do so. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal data from you.

If we ask you to provide personal data to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal data is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal data).

If we collect and use your personal data in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate Our Websites and services; communicating with you as necessary to provide our services to you and for our legitimate commercial interest, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities. We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us using the contact details provided under the CONTACTING US heading below.

WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The Gobid technology collects information on behalf of its customers to help target online advertising to you based on your interests.

Contact information includes: first name, last name, email address, job title, name of the organization, country, state/region and phone numbers (cell and/or landline). This contact information is used by our sales, support and operations teams to contact our customers, vendors and distributors for the purpose of providing the requested information or support, and/or providing our services. We may collect additional information from individuals applying to work at Gobid, and we may retain that data as long as necessary to comply with legal obligations regarding employment.

Analytics

Like most organizations, we rely on automatic data collection technology (Google Analytics). Google Analytics may collect information on our behalf such as your IP host address, Internet service provider, browser type, operating system and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, number of links you click, search terms, and other data. This information is collected automatically and anonymized by Google Analytics. For more information on Google Analytics, including how to opt out from certain data collection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics.

Mobile Tracking

To provide relevant ads to users on mobile devices we may also collect the following mobile-specific information: device type, make and model, operating system, mobile advertising identifiers, operating system device identifier (For example, IDFA for iOS and Android ID for Android) and information about the apps you use.

Your iOS mobile device may provide a “Limit Ad Tracking” setting. On Android devices, your settings may allow you to “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads.” When you have opted out using this setting on a device and that information is passed to Gobid, Gobid will not use your information to target ads to you or place you in segments for future marketing.
