Welcome to Adswave.net (the “Site”) and the related digital advertising platform (the “Platform”). Digital advertising products, and services available on or from the Site and/or the Platform (the “Services”) are owned and operated by AdsWave.net (together with its affiliates, successors, and assigns hereinafter referred to as “our”, “we”, “us”, or “Ads Wave”). Your privacy is important to us. This policy explains our information practices, defines your privacy options and describes how your information is collected and used by us.
The Site and Platform allow our customers to purchase digital advertising, including Interest-Based Advertising. Interest-Based Advertising uses information collected across multiple websites to predict users’ preferences and to show ads that are most likely to be of interest to those users. For example, if a user visits a travel site, they might see travel related ads on another site. Ads Wave offers web users choices with respect to the use of the Site and Platform for this type of advertising. The Site and Platform are designed to enable these advertising services through the use of information that may be collected from customers using the Site or Platform, that customers may acquire from other sources, that customers may submit to Ads Wave via the Site of Platform, or that Ads Wave may acquire from other third party sources. Site and Platform users may provide certain information about themselves, including names, photographs, likeness, images, email address, telephone numbers, physical address, company name, password, billing information, and other information owned and/or created by them during the digital advertisement creation and ordering process. Registered users can change their Profile information at any time and can control how the Site communicates with them.

Ads Wave shall have the right at any time and without prior notice, at its sole discretion, to revise this policy. Such revisions and additions shall be effective immediately upon notice, which may be given by any means, including but not limited to posting the revised or additional terms and conditions on Ads Wave. You are responsible for reviewing the Ads Wave periodically for any modification to this policy.
INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USED BY ADS WAVE
Information You Provide to Us
Registration or Account Creation Processes
Where we ask you to provide information such as: contact information (e.g. name, email) and account administration information (e.g. password). Ads Wave uses that information to authenticate users and to send notifications to users relating to, without limitation, the Services.
Ads Wave may also use a user’s email address to send updates, purchase confirmations, marketing messages, newsletters, product order completion reminders, or news regarding the Services. Ads Wave may send email messages which use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Site. When a user clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. Ads Wave tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.

Automatic Information Collection
Network connected hardware: (e.g. computer, or mobile device) data, such as a unique device identifier, type, model, version, error related data, status, capability, configuration, functionality, performance data, and connection type.
Physical or geographic location data: Such as country, region, city, or latitude and longitude.
Advertising data: Including display frequency, duration, location, or viewing software, or identifier.
Technologies used in our Services to passively collect such information may include:
Pixel tags: Pixel tags are tiny graphic images – to tell us what parts of the Site and Platform have been visited. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format that customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to assure that we are only sending messages that are of interest to our users.
Ads Wave also engages in remarketing and re-engagement, or similar audiences feature which allow Ads Wave to reach people who previously visited the Site, the Platform, or used the Services. Ads Wave utilizes third party pixel tags to gather information for remarketing, re-engagement, or similar audiences on the Site and Platform. Remarketing and re-engagement practices will result in the display of Ads Wave digital ads to Site and Platform users and visitors across the Internet. Additionally, Ads Wave may also utilize third party pixel tags to develop custom audiences for marketing purposes via third party platforms.
Embedded Scripts: Programming code that is temporarily downloaded onto a device, and is active only while you are connected to our website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
In addition, our Services may use a variety of other hardware or software specific technologies that automatically collect information.
Information We Receive From Third Parties
We may also supplement the information that we collect with information that we obtain from third parties relative to you, including, but not limited to, digital ad network vendors and enterprise customers of Ads Wave (including Brokers). We may combine the information we receive from these third parties with the information we directly collect, in which case we will handle it in accordance with this policy, provided however, that to the extent we receive a deletion request from a user we will solely delete the information we collected directly from that user, and not information provided to us by third party relating to that user.
Ads Wave may also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. Ads Wave also collects information regarding customer activities on our Site, and on related websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our Site, Platform, and Internet services are of most interest to them.

At any time, legal guardians can refuse to permit us to collect further personal information regarding their children between 13 years of age and 18, and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with that account. Additionally, legal guardians can request to review personal information collected regarding their children between the ages of 13 and 18 at any time simply by making an email request to privacy@AdsWave.net.

Ads Wave user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. Ads Wave takes reasonable security procedures, practices, and precautions to ensure that account information is kept private.

Among these measures, when you enter sensitive information (such as a password) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology, which creates an encrypted connection between you and our systems.

Please note that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however, and privacy@AdsWave.netcannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. Users are urged to also take precautions to protect their personal data by changing passwords often using a strong combination of letters and numbers, using passwords that are unique to this Site, not sharing log-in credentials with other parties, and using a secure web browser. For additional help with password security, we also recommend password management tools like 1Password and LastPass.
