Privacy Policy

Date last updated: May 24, 2018

WELCOME

Welcome to QuanticMind’s privacy policy. The protection of the data of our users, customers, and the visitors of our customers’ website is important to us. It is a critical part of our operations, our products, and our services.

In this policy we describe our privacy and data protection practices.  We want you to understand our practices, and we want to provide you with tools necessary for you to communicate your choices regarding the collection and handling of certain categories of information that we may collect about you.

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

QuanticMind Inc. (“QuanticMind”) operates a website at www.quanticmind.com (the “Site”). Our postal address is 935 Main Street, Redwood City, CA 94063.

The site describes our products and services, and our operations. [In addition, from the Site, through a special access reserved to registered individuals, QuanticMind provides a web-based online advertising management platform that contains analytics applications (“Application”). The Application helps companies (“Customers”) analyze the traffic patterns on their website, so that they can optimize their spending on advertisements and improve their sales resulting from online searches and online browsing.]

The Application is used to analyze how individuals arrive on a webpage offered by that Customer, what they do after they landed on that page, or how they engage with the advertising campaigns being displayed on their computer, smartphone, tablet or other device (“Device”) when they use the Customer’s website, or click on advertisements for Customer products or services that have been placed on third parties’ websites.

We collect information from different sources.  We collect information about (i) the visitors of our own Site, and (ii) the visitors of our Customers’ websites (a “Customer’s Website”). We collect this information in different manners and for different purposes. Below we describe our privacy policies with respect to both the information we collect from visitors of our Site and from visitors of our Customers’ Websites. 

I.       Definitions.  For ease of use of this document, certain terms have been associated with the specific meaning provided below.

“Advertiser” is a company that advertises its products or services, or those of its clients, using online capabilities. For example, in this context, a retail store that advertises its clothing or an artist that advertises her paintings are advertisers.

“Business User” is an individual who uses the QuanticMind Services on behalf of a Customer as an employee, agent, or owner of the Customer.

“Personal Data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

“Promotion” is a survey, contest, webcast, or promotion that we organize alone or in cooperation with a business partner.

“Publisher” is an entity that provides a medium or vehicle for the publication of certain information; for example, search engine, display marketing services and social networks are publishers.

“QuanticMind Services” is the proprietary platform we developed to enable measuring, managing, and optimizing digital marketing campaigns.

“Registered User” is an individual who has provided their contact information to use in order to receive content from us, such as a white paper or a newsletter.

“User” is an individual who uses our Site or a Customer’s Website. A User can be a Visitor, a Registered User or a Business User.

“Visitor Data” means data about a Visitor’s use of a Customer’s Website or that are generated by, or result from, a visit of that Customer’s Website.

II. Visiting a Customer’s Website. When you visit the website of a QuanticMind Customer, our Customer collects certain information about your visit, which it analyzes and uses for its own purposes. We encourage you to review the applicable privacy policy or privacy notice that is published on that Customer’s website to understand the information it collects and how it uses that information. 

In addition, in certain instances, we also collect information about your visit to that Customer’s Website, without attempting to identify you, for the purpose of analyzing which online advertising placed by our Customer produced business value for our Customer, and how you reached specific pages of our Customer’s Website.

The policies and practices that apply to our collection of data from our Customers’ Websites are described below.  To complete our analysis of each user’s visit to our Customer’s Website, we use information collected from cookies and tags, as explained in our cookie disclosure below.

A. The QuanticMind Services.

  1. Summary –The QuanticMind Services allow businesses to measure, manage, and optimize their digital marketing campaigns. When we provide these Services, we act as a service provider to these businesses and we do not have a direct relationship with these Visitors.  We recommend that our Customers inform Visitors to their websites about their own data collection and use practices, including the fact that they use our services. We also recommend that our Customers post a link to this Privacy Policy, so that the Visitors to their websites are made aware of this Privacy Policy.
  2. Nature of the QuanticMind Services –The QuanticMind Services provide the ability to process large amounts of data regarding unidentified individuals – or individuals whose identity would be very difficult to determine — in order to identify trends. This information allows our Customers to measure, analyze, evaluate, manage, execute, and optimize their digital marketing campaigns.

For example, a business may use the QuanticMind Services to compare whether associating a certain keyword to an item (for example “white shirts”) leads to a larger number of sales of that item, or increases the number of visits to the webpage where that item is displayed, than if the item had been associated with a different keyword. Or, a business may find out that those who purchase a certain item (for example, blue shirts) are more likely to purchase another item at the same time (for example, black belts). Having analyzed this information, the business may in turn decide to modify its advertising or marketing strategy, for example, by purchasing advertising space associated with certain keywords, such as “blue shirts” and “black belts” rather than other keywords (for example, “dress shirts” or “fashion accessories”).

  1. How is Visitor Data Collected –When an individual visits a Customer Website, this visit generates Visitor Data, such as the IP address of the Visitor’s Device, whether the Visitor conducted a search before landing on a specific website, the nature of the search conducted (e.g. what keywords were used, or whether the Visitor clicked on a link), or whether the Visitor made a purchase.

These Visitor Data may be obtained in one of two ways. Customers can upload into the QuanticMind Services the Visitor Data that they have obtained through their own source (e.g. their own proprietary tracking tool, or a third party’s tracking tool). Alternatively, they can use the Visitor Data that have been collected from their website through our Application.  In both cases, the QuanticMind Services will receive (a) data collected by the publishers (for example, search engine, display marketing, social networks), such as information about the cost of advertising certain goods through their platform; and (b) data collected by the Advertisers (for example, department store), such as information about the revenue generated by visits to their website by “logical users,” i.e. people who are identified with a user ID number, but whose identity is not known.

  1. How the Analyses are Created –Using proprietary technology and other technology, the QuanticMind Services organize the Visitor Data, and map the combined results of the analysis of each Visitor’s behavior. Each Customer then uses the QuanticMind Services to analyze the success rate associated to a particular link, advertisement, or search term, produce statistical information, analyze trends, compare costs, or generate other reports that it uses to manage and optimize its digital marketing campaigns.
  2. How Tracking Technology Works –When an individual visits a website, a tracking tool (ours or a third party’s tracking application) collects the IP address and the activities of that Visitor, for example on which links the Visitor clicks, whether the Visitor makes purchases, what keyword the Visitor used in order to identify the item(s) viewed, etc.

The tracking application generates a unique user ID – for example, a user ID associated to the collected IP address – in order to identify a device or entry point. This unique user ID is used to identify a “logical user” or “unique user.” In most cases, the unique user ID cannot, by itself, identify a specific individual, for example because many individuals may be sharing the same device or entry point (e.g., a household, or a cybercafé), or because a portion of the IP address has been truncated.

B.     What Visitor Data We Collect and How We Collect This Data

The Visitor Data that are uploaded in the QuanticMind Services may come from two sources. They may have been collected directly by the Customer, associated to the user IDs chosen by the Customer or they may have been collected directly by QuanticMind on behalf of the Customer.

  1. If our Customer does not use our Application –If the Customer does not use our Application, then we have no ability to know how the Visitor Data are collected by or on behalf of the Customer. This information may be available from the applicable Privacy Policy that is published by the Customer or its representative, i.e. an advertising agency acting on behalf of an Advertiser. We recommend to our Customers that they disclose, in their public Privacy Policies, what Visitor Data they collect, and how they collect these data.
  2. If our Customer uses our Application –If our Customer uses our Application, the Application automatically collects on behalf of our Customer (i) data automatically sent by each Visitor’s Device’s browser, and (i) data collected through cookies and tags, as described below at D4.
  3. From a Visitor’s Browser –The collected Visitor Data, which are provided automatically by the browser, includes the following:
  • The URL of the page of the Customer Site that the Visitor is currently visiting;
  • The URL of the website that the Visitor was viewing before landing on the Customer Website (also called the “referring URL”);
  • The time and date of the current visit to the Customer Website;
  • The Visitor’s Device IP address;
  • The operating system of the Device that the Visitor is using (for example, Apple IOS); and
  • The type of browser, and browser version, of the Device that the Visitor is using.
  1. From Cookies and Other Technologies –Our Application uses its own cookie and tags to track a Visitor’s interaction with a Customer Website, such as data about the Visitor’s online activity, the web pages that the Visitor visits, the search terms that the Visitor uses, the categories of products displayed on a Customer Website that are of interest to the Visitor, and any link or advertisements on which the Visitor clicks. For more information on our use of cookies and other technologies, please see below at D4.
  2. What we do not Collect –We do not intentionally collect data that might reveal a person’s race, religious or philosophical beliefs, political opinions, health or sexual preferences, precise geographical location, credit card numbers or financial data. If we find out that our cookies and tags have inadvertently collected this data, and that this data may be linked to a specific individual (through reasonably available means), we will promptly delete the data or make it inaccessible by third parties, as applicable.

C.      How We Use the Visitor Data We Collect from our Customers’ Websites

Visitor Data that have been uploaded onto the QuanticMind Services are used and compiled to create analyses and reports. These analyses are based on aggregated data. Since the data are aggregated, they cannot be used to identify a specific Visitor.

  1. Analytics of a Specific Customer’s Visitor Data –Each Customer uses the QuanticMind Services to produce reports that help evaluate the success rate of its own digital marketing or advertising campaign, such as whether and to what extent the content of some pages of its website is of interest to its Visitors.

These analyses and reports are created by using Visitor Data in the aggregate, in order to determine trends. The analysis does not focus on the specific taste, interest, preferences, or profile of a particular customer. Instead, it focuses on the behavior or interest of all Visitors or a group of Visitors (e.g. Visitors from a particular geographic area).

  1. What we do NOT do –We do not use Visitor Data for our own purpose, other than in aggregate form, and for creating industry reports as described in the next section. Further, each Customer is only allowed to access or use the Visitor Data that are associated with that Customer’s own website, and is not permitted to access or use the Visitor Data that result from a Visitor’s use of a third party’s website.

We do not share with, or disclose, report, transfer, or deliver to a Customer any Visitor Information that is specific to a particular individual. All information about the use of a Customer Site is provided to the Customer only in aggregated form.

D.    Visitors’ Rights

We respect the privacy of the Visitors to our Customer Websites. To this end, we identify below the privacy choices that these Visitors have with respect to the QuanticMind cookies and other technologies that are installed by QuanticMind or on its behalf on Customer Websites.

While we have tried to provide all the tools necessary so that individuals can manage their personal data without interaction with us, you may prefer to interact directly with us. You can contact us at any time with your questions or requests for assistance. Please refer to the How to Contact Us section below.

  1. Right to Object to New Uses of your Visitor Data –If at any time we wish to disclose, or use your Visitor Data in a way, or for a purpose that is materially different from that which is described in this Privacy Policy, we will give you the opportunity to choose whether Visitor Data that identify you or from which you may be identifiable may be used for a purpose other than the purposes that are set forth in this Privacy Policy.
  2. Right to Know about Third Party Marketing –We do not share any personally identifiable Visitor Data with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If at any time we wish to disclose, or use Visitor Data in a way, or for a purpose other than as described in this Privacy Policy, we will give these Visitors the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether Visitor Data that identify them or from which they may be identifiable (1) may be disclosed to a third party and (2) may be used for a purpose other than the purposes that are set forth in this Privacy Policy.
  3. Accessing, Changing, or Deleting Visitor Data –When performing our services, we do not collect data that can be linked to an individual, and does not attempt to link Visitor Data to a specific individual. If, nevertheless, a Visitor believes that we have collected Visitor Data that pertains to this Visitor or from which the Visitor can be identified, and the Visitor wishes to have access to this data, we will exercise reasonable efforts to retrieve this data.

Please be aware that this retrieval or any further action with respect to these Visitor Data might be time consuming or difficult, and the burden or expense of retrieving the data requested might be disproportionate to the benefit that you would receive from having access to this Visitor Data. In this case, we will need to charge a fee commensurate with the effort required, in order for us to provide access to the data requested.

A.     Service Providers.  We work with third party service providers who provide website, application development, hosting, maintenance, and other services for us. These third parties may have access to, or process Personal Data as part of providing those services for us.

We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through the QuanticMind Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.

VII.     Your California Privacy Rights

We will not share any Personal Data with third-parties for their direct marketing purposes to the extent prohibited by California law. If our practices change, we will do so in accordance with applicable laws and will notify you in advance.

VIII.     Interest Based Advertising

Interest based advertising is the collection of data from different sources and across different platforms in order to predict an individual’s preferences or interest and to deliver to that individual, or his/her computer, smart phone or tablet, advertising based on his/her assumed preference or interest inferred from the collection of data pertaining to that individual or others who may have a similar profile or similar interests.

We work with a variety of third parties to attempt to understand the profiles of the individuals who are most likely to be interested in QuanticMinds’ products or services so that we can send them promotional emails, or serve our advertisements to them on the websites and mobile apps of other entities.

These third parties include: (a) advertising networks, which collect information about a person’s interests when that person views or interacts with one of their advertisements; (2) attribution partners, which measure the effectiveness of certain advertisements; and (3) business partners, which collect information when a person views or interacts with one of their advertisements.

In collaboration with these third parties, we collect information about our customers, prospects and other individuals over time and across different platforms when they use these platforms or interact with them. Individuals may submit information directly on our Site or on platforms run by third parties, or by interacting with us, our advertisements, or emails they receive from us or from third parties. We may use special tools that are commonly used for this purpose, such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags, mobile advertising IDs, flash cookies, and similar technologies. We may have access to databases of information collected by our business partners.

The information we or third party collect enables us to learn what purchases the person made, what ads or content the person sees, on which ads or links the person clicks, and other actions that the person takes on our Site, or in response to our emails, or when visiting or using third parties’ platforms.

We, or the third parties with which we work, use the information collected as described above to understand the various activities and behaviors of our customers, Site visitors and others. We, or these third parties, do this for many reasons, including: to recognize new or past visitors to our Site; to present more personalized content; to provide more useful and relevant ads – for example, if we know what ads you are shown we can try not to show you the same ones repeatedly; to identify visitors across devices, sales channels, third party websites and Sites, or to display or send personalized or targeted ads and other custom content that is more focused on a person’s perceived interest in products or services similar to those that we offer.

Our interest-based ads may be served to you in emails or on third-party platforms. We may serve these ads about our products or services or send commercial communications directly ourselves or through these third parties.

Visitors may opt out of receiving interest based advertising by advertising networks that may be delivered to them on our platform and other websites by visiting the following websites: http://www.aboutads.info/consumers; and http://www.networkadvertising.org. These features will opt a visitor out of many – but not all – of the interest-based advertising activities in which we or third parties engage.

IX.     Do Not Track Policy

California law requires that operators of websites and online services disclose how they respond to a Do Not Track signal. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to Do Not Track signal. We continue to work with the online industry to define a common understanding of how to treat Do Not Track signals.

In the meantime, you may opt out of receiving interest based advertising from advertising networks that may be delivered on our platform and other websites by visiting the following websites. If you want to opt out of this online behavioral advertising, visit the following sites: http://www.aboutads.info/consumers and http://www.networkadvertising.org.

This will opt you out of many – but not all – of the interest-based advertising activities in which we or third parties engage. Choices you make may be browser and device specific. If you delete your cookies or use a different browser or a different computer or device, you may need to update your opt-out choices. Other third-party sites provide visitors with the ability to opt-out of receiving interest-based ads on their sites that you need to control through your settings on that Site. For example, to opt out of Google’s use of your online behavior for advertising purposes, visit Google’s Ad Settings page.

X.      Third Party Cookies

California law requires that operators of websites and online services disclose whether other third parties may collect personally identifiable information about an individual’s online activities from their site or service. We allow third parties with which we have a separate agreement to use cookies and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Site. These third parties include (1) business partners, which collect information when you view or interact with one of their advertisements on the Site; and (2) advertising networks, which collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of their advertisements.

The information gathered by these third parties is used to make predictions about your interests or preferences so that they can display advertisements or promotional material on this Site and on other sites across the Internet tailored to your apparent interests.

The business partners and advertising networks that serve interest-based advertisements on the Services have limited access to a small amount of information about your profile and your device, which is necessary to serve you advertisements that are tailored to your apparent interests.

XI.     Minors and Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. The QuanticMind Service is not directed to children under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 18 without obtaining parental consent. If you are under 18 years of age, then please do not use or access the Service at any time or in any manner. If we learn that Personal Data has been collected on the QuanticMind Service from persons under 18 years of age and without verifiable parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under 18 years of age has obtained an account on the QuanticMindService, then you may alert us at privacy@quanticmind.com and request that we delete that child’s Personal Data from our systems.

The QuanticMind Service is not intended to be used by minors, and is not intended to be used to post content to share publicly or with friends. To the extent that a minor has posted such content on the QuanticMind Service, the minor has the right to have this content deleted or removed using the deletion or removal options detailed in this Privacy Policy. If you have any question regarding this topic, please contact us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section. Please be aware that, although we offer this deletion capability, the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information.

XII.     Data Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet, and we also employ application-layer security features to further anonymize Personal Data.

However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the QuanticMind Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us as set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section.

If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.

XIII.     Data Retention

We only retain the Personal Data collected from a User for as long as the User’s account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements as follows:

  • the contents of closed accounts are deleted within 3 months of the date of closure;
  • backups are kept for 3 months;
  • billing information is retained for a period of 7 years
  • information on legal transactions between a Business User and QuanticMind is retained for a period of 7 years

XIV.     Settings

Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to certain Personal Data, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on the QuanticMind Service. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Further, even after information posted on the QuanticMind Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the QuanticMind Service. We cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the QuanticMind Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

XV.     Data Transfer

We may transfer, process and store Personal Data we collect through the QuanticMind Services in centralized databases and with service providers located in the U.S. The U.S. may not have the same data protection framework as the country from which you may be using the QuanticMind Services. When we transfer Personal Data to the U.S., we will protect it as described in this Privacy Policy.

The QuanticMind Service is hosted in the United States. If you choose to use the QuanticMind Service from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you may be transferring your Personal Data outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing by our service providers listed in our Terms of Service. We will comply with GDPR requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information from Europe to the U.S. Also, we may transfer your data to the U.S. or other countries or regions deemed by the European Commission to provide adequate protection of personal data in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the QuanticMind Service.

XVI.     Limitation of Liability

We exercise reasonable efforts to safeguard the security and confidentiality of your personal data; however, transmissions protected by industry standard technology and administered by humans cannot be guaranteed to be secure. We will not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of personal data that occurs through no fault of QuanticMind including, but not limited to, errors in transmission, access to your account by anyone, uses of your user ID and password by a third party, your failure to comply with your security obligations, and the unauthorized acts of QuanticMind’s employees.

XVII.     International Transfer

Your information may be transferred, stored, maintained, and processed in the United States or in other countries where we have facilities or where we have engaged a service provider. This storage, maintenance or processing will be performed under privacy and security laws and standards that may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. By using our Site and/or the QuanticMind Service or by providing information to us, you consent to such storage, maintenance and processing outside your country of residence.

XVIII.     Disputes

If you have any concerns or claims with respect to our Privacy Policy, please contact us as indicated in the “How to contact us” section. We will investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints and disputes regarding our use and disclosure of personal data.

If the complaint or dispute cannot be resolved through our internal process, or QuanticMind does not adequately respond to your question, please contact the San Francisco office of the American Arbitration Association, which will serve as a liaison with QuanticMind to resolve your concerns.

If arbitration is necessary, it will be conducted by telephone and email, and if it must be done in person, it will be conducted in a location mutually agreeable to both parties. The arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator member of the American Arbitration Association, and under the rules of commercial arbitration of the American Arbitration Association. All decisions of the arbitrator will be final and binding on both parties and enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.

XIX.     Changes and Updates to this Policy

Please revisit this page periodically to stay aware of any changes to this Policy, which we may update from time to time. If we modify the Policy, we will make it available through the QuanticMind Service, and indicate the date of the latest revision, and will comply with applicable law. Your continued use of the Service after the revised Policy has become effective indicates that you have read, understood and agreed to the current version of the Policy.
