SiteScout Inc. is committed to protecting the privacy of online consumers. This document outlines our technology and the practices we use to collect information.
SiteScout does not collect any personally identifiable information (PII) from users. SiteScout adheres to the privacy guidelines created by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB).
SiteScout is a technology service provider. When you see an ad that has been served by sitescout.com, the website you are visiting has commissioned SiteScout to act as an agent to deliver advertisements and report on advertising activity. The website you are visiting may be: a SiteScout customer or a website who is selling ad space to one of SiteScout’s customers. The information collected by SiteScout on behalf of our customers is the property of that customer and is only used by SiteScout to customize ad serving for that customer.
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or it’s service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. Cookies are often wrongly categorized as “Spyware”, or as a virus or other malicious program. A cookie itself cannot do anything except help a Web site behave in a manner customized to you.
It is possible to tell your browser to reject cookies for all sites or specific sites. Rejecting cookies is not recommended however as cookies are intended to improve your browsing experience.
To ensure the correct delivery and success of our customer’s advertising campaigns, SiteScout uses pixel tracking tags to measure usage statistics. SiteScout customers will have their partner websites place these pixel tags on their websites. These tags allow SiteScout software to measure non-personal behavioural patterns which indicate the success of the advertising. No personally identifiable information is collected during this process.
