TubeMogul participates in the following industry self-regulatory organizations and complies with these organizations’ self-regulatory principles: Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (eDAA) and the Canadian Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising (DAAC).
Ad Targeting and Opt-OutTubeMogul’s advertising platform is designed to value and place bids on individual ad impressions across major inventory suppliers, exchanges, digital publisher sites. We provide ad delivery and reporting for our clients, and we enable our clients to use data segments based on their own proprietary non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”) regarding you and other web users, as well as Non-PII data segments supplied by third-party data companies, to help ensure that the ads delivered to you via our platform our relevant to your interests. We describe this process in more detail below under the section entitled “Information Collected and Used by the TubeMogul advertising platform.”
Web Browser Opt-OutIf you prefer not to receive targeted ads in your web browser via our platform as described above you can opt out by clicking the link below:
Mobile Device Opt-OutYou may also opt out of receiving targeted ads on devices such as iPhones, iPads, or phones and tablets using the Android operating system, by using platform level controls enabled through your device settings. You should consult your device settings and instructions provided by your device manufacturer, however we provide the following information solely for informational purposes.
If you have an Apple device, you can opt out of targeted advertising by updating to iOS 6.0 or higher, and setting “Limit Ad Tracking” to “ON”. You can do this by clicking on Settings -> Privacy -> Advertising, and toggling “Limit Ad Tracking” to “ON”. This prevents apps that you use from using your Apple device’s Advertising Identifier to serve you targeted ads, including those placed by TubeMogul’s advertising platform. In addition, or as an alternative, you may reset your device’s Advertising Identifier, which will result in your device being disassociated from ad targeting profiles based on the Advertising Identifier in effect prior to reset. You can do this by clicking on Settings -> Privacy -> Advertising -> Reset Advertising Identifier. Again, you should consult Apple’s support web pages and instructions for the most current applicable settings.
If you have an Android device, you can opt out of targeted advertising on your device. You can do this by clicking the menu icon to display the apps list, then find and select the Google Settings icon, then find and select “Ads” and check the box “Opt out of interest-based ads”. In addition, or as an alternative, you may reset your device’s Android advertising ID, which will result in your device being disassociated from ad targeting profiles based on the Android advertising ID in effect prior to reset. You can do this by clicking the menu icon to display the apps list, then find and select the Google Settings icon, then find and select “Ads” and selecting “Reset advertising ID”. Note that Android settings menus may vary among device manufacturers and these instructions may not be accurate for your device. You should consult Google’s settings and instructions for the most current settings information.
Additional Information Regarding Opting Out of Ad TargetingNote that opting out will not prevent you from seeing ads – it will only make ads being served by TubeMogul’s advertising platform less relevant to your interests. Also, if you opt out and later delete your cookies, use a different browser or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your opt-out choice. Additionally, you may click here to access the opt out page maintained by the NAI, you may click here to access the opt out page maintained by the DAA, you may click here to access the opt out page maintained by the eDAA, and you may click here to access the opt out page maintained by the DAAC, each of which provides additional information and a mechanism to opt out of interest based advertising from some or all member companies of each organization.
Information Collected and Used by the TubeMogul Advertising PlatformTubeMogul’s advertising platform collects Non-PII. Non-PII is information that cannot by itself be used to identify a particular person. When you view an ad served by our advertising platform, we collects Non-PII about the internet connected device that you are using, the websites and mobile applications that you visit and use, and the ads that you see online and in mobile applications. The information collected includes your device and IP address used to access the internet, the browser or application used, the operating system or other relevant software on your device, mobile device advertising IDs such as Apple Advertising Identifier or IDFA and Android advertising ID, the date and time of your visit to a website or mobile application where our platform is delivering ads, whether you have responded to one of our clients’ ads, the referring URL or mobile application name or alphanumeric ID. We also enable our clients to use Non-PII data segments consisting of cookies and/or mobile device advertising IDs based on standard demographic categories (age and gender) generated by our platform as well as Non-PII data segments based on interests or web usage activity purchased from third-party data companies through our platform. These third party Non-PII data segments are based on data collected by the third party data companies that are our business partners pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Our advertising platform uses this Non-PII data to help make the online ads you see more relevant to you. In some cases, we may work with clients and third party business parties to optimize ads and make them more relevant to your interests by sharing portions of the Non-PII data described above (generally cookie based unique anonymous IDs) with other advertising platforms such as exchanges, sell side platforms, data management platforms, websites, and our clients, to enable the synchronization of data we have collected with data held by such parties to increase the size of the audience of users to whom we can show relevant ads on behalf of our clients. Our advertising platform also uses the collected Non-PII data for ad delivery and reporting purposes, such as campaign measurement, conversion tracking, geographic targeting, providing specific advertisements at specific times of the day, analyzing and reporting advertisement performance, determining and limiting the frequency with which a user is shown a specific advertisement, and fraud prevention. When TubeMogul’s advertising platform displays an advertisement in a browser or application without a unique identifier associated, because an opt out cookie is set, or the application has not passed the mobile device advertising ID, or for any other reason, the platform generates a hash of the user’s IP address and user agent string, which is an approximation of a unique identifier and which the platform uses solely for ad delivery and reporting purposes, in particular for campaign measurement (i.e., counting the number of unique users that are shown a specific advertisement).
We don’t place personally identifiable information such as your name, email address or telephone number (“PII”) onto our advertising platform and we don’t allow our clients to do so. Similarly, we don’t place data segments that we consider to be sensitive onto the platform and don’t allow our clients to do so. Data that we consider to be “sensitive” includes social security numbers or other government-issued identifiers, insurance plan numbers, financial account numbers, precise information about past, present, or potential future health or medical conditions or treatments, including genetic, genomic, and family medical history, and sexual orientation. And while flash is sometimes used to enable the delivery of content and ads, our platform does not use flash cookies or HTML5 persistent storage for any reason.
We and our clients sometimes use health related targeting data segments provided by third party data companies, however these segments do not contain sensitive data (as described above). The non-sensitive health related data segments that can be used on our platform are in the following categories: (1) occupation in a health related field, (2) health related topics and conditions (but not specific conditions), (3) health insurance, (4) diet, fitness, weight-loss and healthy lifestyles, (5) consumer goods and services for personal healthcare, vision care, grooming and beauty, (5) over the counter medicines, remedies and dietary supplements, and (6) health related charities. Click here for a list of health related segments supplied by third party data companies that we and our clients may use to target ads using our platform.
For more information about cookies and web beacons, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org. If you delete or clear cookies from your internet browser, this will delete cookies that have been set by websites and technologies such as our advertising platform to identify and respect your “opted out” status. Additionally, clearing cookies from your internet browser does not send any information to TubeMogul regarding your cookie preferences, and the next time TubeMogul has the opportunity to place cookies in your browser, we will do so, even if you had opted out of cookie based ad targeting before you cleared your browser cookies. If desired, you must renew your opted out status by clicking our opt out link again or by visiting the opt out page maintained by the appropriate industry self-regulatory group from those identified above.

Our advertiser clients may in some cases use our advertising platform to advertise on websites with user audiences that are likely to include significant numbers of children under 13. In these instances we undertake reasonable measures to restrict the Non-PII data collection that our advertising platform would otherwise enable, to avoid tracking the users of these websites.
SecurityWe take reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.
