Privacy Policy

Last Updated February 8, 2024

Veraset, LLC. (“Veraset”) values and respects the privacy of users. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect information about users of mobile applications that provide us information (“users” or “you”), as well as visitors to our website(s), what information we collect, how that information may be used and shared, and what options users have regarding the collection and sharing of their location data.

Information We Collect And How We Collect It

We obtain a variety of information (collectively the “Information”) from trusted third-party data partners such as mobile application developers. We collect this Information primarily through APIs, which are interfaces through which these app developers can provide us with information about their users. When we collect the Information through other delivery methods, such as software development kits (“SDKs”) that are embedded directly into mobile apps. We collect the following Information from these apps:

  • Mobile ad identifiers, primarily Apple iOS IDFAs or Google Android IDs;
  • The precise geographic location of a device at a certain time, usually expressed in latitude/longitude coordinates along with a timestamp;
  • The horizontal accuracy of the latitude/longitude coordinates.

We sometimes also collect:

  • Phone carrier and connection type (e.g., cellular, wifi);
  • The direction in which the device is traveling as a degree coordinate and speed of device;
  • Information about a device such as device type and model and OS type and version;
  • Device language;
  • Public facing (external) IP address of device;
  • Available or connected wifi SSID and/or BSSID names;
  • Altitude and vertical accuracy;
  • Whether device is charging;
  • Bluetooth connected/available devices;
  • Beacon proximity or any beacon metadata.
  • Hashed email address encrypted in SHA256 or other encrypted formats.

As described in the section titled Information Collected When You Visit Our Website, we also collect certain Information when people visit our website(s), including the website on which this Privacy Policy resides.

How We Use And Share The Information We Collect

Veraset aggregates the Information collected from these mobile apps, i.e., our data partners, and provides the Information to our customers. Our customers – a variety of companies and organizations – in turn use the Information for a variety of commercial and research purposes, including ad targeting (for instance, building models of inferred audience preferences), traffic analysis (for instance, tracking which parts of a city or neighborhood are most busy, at what times), retail site selection (for instance, determining where to open a new restaurant) and market research (for instance, tracking consumer shopping trends based on foot traffic concentration).

Sometimes the Information is used to build models that connect different devices. For instance, some of our customers may create “cross device” capabilities to enable marketers to target specific sets of users across various channels and devices. Veraset also uses the Information to develop derivative products, such as determining whether a certain device visited a certain retail store at a given time.

Veraset may also use the Information for our internal and operational purposes, such as to consider or make internal service improvements or quality checking, or for our own sales and marketing purposes, and more generally to operate, maintain and improve the services we offer.

We may also use and share the Information for legal, auditing and accounting purposes, such as (a) in good faith compliance with a request from law enforcement or a governmental agency, (b) protect or enforce our rights or those of others, (c) to evaluate or enhance the security or quality of our Information, or (d) to investigate potential wrongdoing.

Likewise, in the event of any potential merger or acquisition, any Information we hold (including information collected on our website) will likely be transferred to the successor entity, and shared with others in preparation or anticipation of such an event (e.g., during due diligence).
