[Last Revised: July 17, 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 (“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.

 

Capitalized terms which are not defined herein, shall have the meaning ascribed to them in our Terms and Conditions available at: http://www.brightcom.com/toc/ which this Privacy Policy is incorporated thereto by reference (collectively, the “Terms”).

We have included below information about which data is collected, how we process and use your data, but before we would like to explain the basis on which we do so:

  • Where you sign up for any of our Services, we process your personal data in order to perform our contract with you;
  • If we have a legitimate interest in processing data, such as for direct marketing, online advertising or online identifiers when you access our Site or use our Services; or
