Prohibited Profiling

Demand partners may create targeting profiles or segments based on the ads they show to users and user interaction with those ads (as long as this is fully disclosed in your privacy policy and you follow all your legal and contractual obligations).  Demand partners may not create targeting profiles or segments on the basis that a user has visited a particular publisher or website, the PixFuture category(ies) that apply to the inventory, website or publisher, the content on the web page or website, or the general interest area(s) covered by the publisher.  This doesn’t prohibit you from targeting ads in real time on the basis of the inventory category(ies) shown in the PixFuture, as long as you don’t retain that information and/or include it in a targeting profile or segment.

 

Violations

At PixFuture’s sole discretion, PixFuture may assess a surcharge for any violation of these policies and/or immediately terminate your access to the platform (in addition to any other legal or contractual remedies).  If PixFuture assesses a surcharge, we will use our reasonable discretion to set the amount of the charge, taking into account the nature of the violation, the additional work and expense PixFuture incurred in dealing with the violation, and the harm done to the PixFuture, PixFuture’s reputation and/or to other PixFuture clients.
