Brightcom Privacy Policy

[Last Revised: May 14, 2018]

Online Media Solutions Ltd. dba Brightcom (“we” “us” “our” or “Brightcom”) is a global ad-tech company that operates and provides an online supply side platform currently known as “Compass” (“SSP”). Company’s SSP provides third party partners (“Advertisers”) with a proprietary technology, designed and developed to offer an end-to-end solution, which enables third party publishers (“Publishers”) to display online advertisements to end users who use or otherwise interact with certain mobile webpages and desktop websites (“Digital Assets”) using available solutions in the market, such as real time bidding, tag integration, header bidding and other advanced hybrid solutions.

Brightcom recognizes the importance of your privacy and we take this issue very seriously. To this end, we have designed the Brightcom Privacy Policy in a format that is easy to read so that you can clearly understand our privacy practices. This Policy describes Brightcom’s collection and use of the information provided or collected on or through our various services and features (collectively shall be defined hereinafter as the “Services”), which includes, our website which is currently located at www.brightcom.com (“Site”) as well as our SSP for the purpose of displaying online advertisements within Digital Assets. We are committed to treating any information we collect with care and respect.

If you have any questions about this Policy, please contact us at: at: [email protected] (or as described below).

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The first type of information is non-identifiable information which may be made available or gathered via your use of Services, or users interaction with Digital Assets, to clarify, we are not aware of your identity (“Non-Personal Information”).

We further may process certain information which could be individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual (“Personal Information”) as follows:

  • Identifiers: certain identifiers such as IP address are collected by us and others might be collected by the Advertisers (i.e., by placing Cookies on the Digital Assets as detailed below). Note that the IP address we collect is considered “Personal Information” in many jurisdictions (such as the EEA), therefore, we treat the Identifiers as such and comply with applicable laws.
  • Contact details: If you choose to contact us in any manner, including through the “Contact Us” page in the Site, support, or any other request or notification, whether by submitting an online form that we make available or by sending an email to an email address that we display, or in any other manner, you may be required to provide us with certain information such as your name and email address.
