Cookies, Pixel Tags and others Ad Tracking Technologies
Like most Internet sites, downlinehelper.com and its third party ad serving party uses “cookies” to enhance the Internet user’s experience on the Web. Neither downlinehelper.com nor such third party ad serving party uses these cookies to personally identify you in any way and these cookies in no way damage your system or files.
What are cookies and how do they enhance your Web experience?
A cookie is a unique number that is assigned to you the first time you are served an ad. This number is stored in a file on your computer. For instance, cookies help ensure that you don’t repeatedly see the same ad. Cookies can also help advertisers measure how you utilize an advertiser’s site and the effectiveness of an ad. This information can then be used by advertisers to better cater to your needs. In other words, cookies help us deliver to you the types of ads in which you are most interested.
In the course of providing online advertising services to websites and advertisers, downlinehelper.com may use pixel tags (also known as clear GIFs or web beacons). A pixel tag is a line of code that is placed on a website by the website owner which enables us to analyze advertising campaigns and the general usage patterns of visitors to their websites. In all such instances, the pixel tag is programmed to collect only anonymous information about your visit to a particular website, for example, pages viewed, number of visits, navigation history through the website, or other statistics. This non-personally-identifiable information is sent to our ad server for processing.
Advertising identifiers (IDFA): is a unique ID for each OS device that is associated with individual mobile devices and that does not reveal your real-world identity. They are user-resettable. These advertising identifiers help us to track whether you complete specific actions on an advertiser’s mobile website or application, as this is needed for analytical purposes and in order to monitor the performance of our ads.
downlinehelper.com may also receive precise location data (as defined by the NAI: Network Advertising Initiative) generated from your use of your mobile devices, such as the latitude/longitude coordinates provided by a mobile app publisher or other media supply source in conjunction with the opportunity to purchase advertising inventory.
IP information: to coordinate identifiers across platforms, browsers, or devices, in order to more efficiently analyze or target advertising.
