Last Updated Date: May 14, 2014

Welcome to Yieldbot’s Privacy Policy. The term “Yieldbot,” “we,” and “us” includes Yieldbot, Inc. and our affiliates and subsidiaries. The Privacy Policy explains how Yieldbot may:

information we obtain through the “Service.”

The “Service” means our online advertising, analytics, and personalized content services provided to partners and under the control of Yieldbot, Inc.

This Privacy Policy pertains only to the advertising, analytics, and personalized content services we provide to our partners. It does not represent or replace the privacy policies of our partner websites that use the Service or the advertisers whose content we display. This Privacy Policy also does not apply to our website.

The Service Collects Anonymous Information

The Service does not collect personally identifiable information or demographic information. The Service collects anonymous information about the usage of our partners’ websites and personalized content displayed by the Service by using cookies, server logs, and other similar technology.

No Personally Identifiable Information. We do not collect personally identifiable information through the Service. We cannot and do not use the collected data to determine any individual’s actual identity.

We do not collect demographic information about you through the Service, such as your age, gender, income, education level, etc.

We do not come in contact with, and specifically disclaim any association with, any personally identifiable information collected by our partners or advertisers from their consumer end users.

Cookies, Automatic Data Collection, and Related Technologies. When you visit a partner website that uses the Service, we receive and record information that is generated automatically on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, and from cookies, javascript, and similar technology. The data includes your anonymous website usage statistics such as the website you used to access our partner’s website and the URLs of the pages you visit on the partner’s website.

Our advertising cookies exist only while you use a partner website and expire when you leave it, so we do not collect information about your use of other websites. We use persistent cookies in the domain of the partner’s website that last 30 days for the sole purpose of tracking you as a returning visitor to that partner’s website.

By using the Service, you are authorizing us to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of the Service.

How Yieldbot Uses Your Information

We use the information collected by the Service to facilitate and improve our online advertising, analytics, and personalized content services. We may use aggregate information for any purpose, including for marketing purposes.

Internal and Service-Related Usage. We use the information collected by the Service for internal and service-related purposes and may provide it to third parties to allow us to facilitate the Service, including online advertising, analytics, and personalized content services. For example, we use website usage information to personalize advertising displayed to our partners’ website visitors. We may use and retain any data we collect to provide and improve our services.

Online Advertising.The Service uses anonymous information to provide first-party online advertising services for our partners. This means that the Service helps a partner show you online ads on their website based on information collected about your anonymous interaction with that partner’s website. We do not use information about you collected on other websites to personalize ads for a partner’s website. We also keep our partners separate. We do not use information collected on one partner’s website to personalize advertising on another partner’s website.

Aggregate Data. We may aggregate data collected through the Service and use it for any purpose. For example, we may disclose aggregated information about the use of Service to partners, advertisers, prospective investors, and others. Additionally, we may produce website traffic reports for assessing use of Services and for billing purposes. This information cannot be traced back to you personally.
