This privacy policy of information and commitments made by Scibids (hereafter the "Privacy Policy") detail the main principles we apply to data collected by our systems:

What we collect

From the beginning, Scibids has always dedicated all needed means to meet customers’ and Internet users’ expectations concerning privacy protection and commercial matters. We want to make the Internet a better place by providing the means to our customers to expose Internet users to ads in the most relevant way (less frequently, but with more impact).

To do so, Scibids needs to access Navigation Data attached to their device(s) and to the web browsers used by their device(s).

“Navigation Data” refers to data related to connections of any device to the Internet. It concerns, in particular,

  • the device’s IP (Internet Protocol) Address
  • the date and time of connection of the device
  • the URL of the page accessed by the device
  • the URL of the page from which the user comes from (aka the “referrer”).
  • the language of use, type and version of the web browser used by the device
  • the type and version of the operating system used by the device

In order to provide our services, we process Navigation Data in respect of this Privacy Policy. We do not collect users’ names, mailing addresses, phone numbers, email addresses or similar personally identifiable information through our services.

We collect information through the use of pixels. A pixel is a 1x1 image which can be delivered by our systems if requested by a browser. This request allows us to record the aforementioned datapoints without using any cookie or any persistent code or file which would be attached to the user’s browser or device. The use of a pixel allows us to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular site or page.  Additional information from an earlier period or interaction, which may include interest, demographic or other information intended to provide users with more useful and relevant online advertising, may be included in the request’s URL by partners or third party data providers.

Please notice we do not use cookies to collect information.

What we use it for

We use the information collected through our services to analyze which media exposure opportunities lead to the best results for our customers who are media buyers. Then, we provide bid engines which are systems able to modify and improve the media buying strategies of our customers. This way, we aim at providing you with the most useful and relevant online advertising while improving the performance of our customers’ campaigns.
