Smartology – Privacy policy


Background

This policy describes Smartology’s approach to privacy for our clients and partners, including publishers, advertisers, agencies and web users.

Smartology is an advertising technology company, which helps brand’s market thought-leadership content through semantic profiling and relevancy matching. Its proprietary technology uses Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to serve readers with highly-relevant advertiser content.

 

Ad serving

As the Smartology solution is based on matching content with content – to in turn engage users – it does not require knowledge, store personal details of the user or interact with the user’s cookie or track a user’s browsing history.

When a user visits a news website that has integrated with SmartMatch, our servers may automatically record information that all browsers send in server logs. These server logs include information such as Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer), the date and time, browser type, the page being visited, which SmartMatch client adverts the user saw and any interactions with those adverts.  We do not share this data with any third party.
