Privacy Policy

Privacy matters

We at realzeit respect your privacy and with this privacy policy we would like to provide you with information related to the data we collect and we would like to describe how we use such information. Furthermore, we would like to illuminate your choices with respect to the collection and use of data for online behavioral advertising and other data relating to your use of our website or your use of certain mobile apps and websites provided by third parties for which realzeit renders advertising services.

We collect/process your information in order to ensure advertisers can provide you with relevant advertising based on your interests, affinities and local context and measure the effectiveness of their campaigns. The aim of this is to effectively reduce the amount of ads you see that aren't beneficial or of interest to you. An opt-out from targeting would not reduce the amount of ads, it just makes the ads you receive less relevant.

Our purpose in collecting such data is to help us provide you with better service, such as more relevant notifications about special offers and promotions. If you would like to know more about how this works, we suggest to start with using the following websites to inform yourself:

Of course, we will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about you to any third party without first receiving your permission, as explained in this privacy statement.
