Privacy

Audience2Media focuses on specific channels of interest and represents a unique online advertising platform to both Advertisers and Publishers. We partner with renowned websites within the UK as well as a number of selected international companies taking display advertising space and selling it to advertisers and agencies. We have one solution delivering "in-market" audiences to advertisers, by using a global leading technology platform allowing us to target online users with your ad, delivering ultimate performance / ROI.

Online Performance Tracking

To deliver "in-market" audiences to our advertisers we use a variety of tracking technologies through our websites on our platform where the online user visits, where the user clicks on one of our ads we run for our advertisers. We use such information to ensure optimum results are delivered from our advertisers' campaign.

Behavioural Targeting

Audience2Media focuses on specific channels delivering the maximum reach and most interested online consumers we further create behavioural profiles by simply identifying which websites' online users see our ads on. For example, if you visit a food site within our platform then we may classify you as interested in food. Importantly, we work with all major websites and the selected niche sites providing a full profile of online users. In comparison to other networks who offer Behavioural Targeting, is simply "retargeting" online users who have visited the advertisers site and have limited websites in their network. We all know that we can visit sites outside of the UK for specific interests. Audience2Media captures this by working with the most popular sites in the world.

We follow the strict guidelines of the IAB (Internet Advertising Bureau) and the OBA Framework which is the most respected trade association for the internet industry. The IAB has the following definition: "information that can be traced back to a specific user and provide personal information such as name, address, phone number, etc" is categorised a personal information about you. Our methodology does not collect or use any Personal Identifiable Information (PII) – each of our profiles are and can only be anonymous.

Audience2Media works with both Publishers and Advertisers and we are bound to deliver effective advertising on every single site, and ultimately maximising the amount of return that can be generated.

The European Commission has also raised a number of concerns related to online data collection for behavioural targeting, and Audience2Media is proud to follow and abide by the current guidelines and framework of the IAB Europe / OBA Framework.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file stored by a web site on your computer to keep track of information about your browsing on that site. Some sites use cookies to record your surfing patterns, and then optimise the information the site subsequently presents. For example, a search site may present you with advertising that reflects your interests based on the keywords you search for.

Basically, cookies can store tracking data about your browsing, but cannot access any personal information from your browser. A summary of cookie capabilities is given below:

  • Default settings. If you have already entered data to a web site voluntarily, then cookies can store it and later retrieve it to set default settings every time you visit, such as user name, password, reference settings, etc.
  • Custom content. If you search for words on a site associated with a certain subject, such as "garden", the site could learn to present you with more information on gardening related subjects in side-bars and related links sections.
  • Form data. Cookies can be used by browsers and web sites to archive information that you enter on complex forms, so that if you leave the page or you become disconnected and come back to the page later, your previously entered data can be preloaded for you.
  • Limitations. Cookies cannot access your email address, read files from your hard drive, or obtain your credit card numbers or other personal information. Cookies cannot put viruses on your computer, because they are text data files and not active programs.
  • Cross-site access. Cookies from one site cannot be used to record your activity on other sites, and a site cannot read another site's cookies. Other than site activity a cookie cannot access any other information with two exceptions: a site can record the address of the page you linked from, and it can record the address of the page you jump to (if the links are customized to transmit the data).
