Overview

Most of what’s great about the Internet is free. Why? In a word: advertising.

Think about TV. These days, if you want to see the really great series and movies and sports, you have to pay for them. What if you had to pay for all the great websites and apps?

Dstillery is helping keep the Internet free by enabling marketers to target their ads to the right audience in a way that protects the identity and privacy of users. We’ve created technology that drives the performance of online ads while knowing as little about the user as possible. It’s privacy by design.

We don’t capture personally identifiable information like name, address or usernames. We don’t analyze page content. We don’t build personally descriptive profiles.

We don’t know who you are. And, to be honest, we don’t care. We analyze patterns of behavior, not people.

We assign a unique ID to each web browser. This number represents you, but it isn’t you. We don’t know who you are or anything about you. Based on where you go online, we try to predict what brands you’d be most interested in.

The result for any given user is more relevant advertising. And a robust, free Internet!

Consumer Assistance

Dstillery uses proprietary social targeting technology to deliver relevant ads to consumers.

Dstillery’s cookies are generated and stored on a user’s computer when an Internet browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox) views one of Dstillery’s online ads. The Dstillery cookie does not include your name, address, phone number, email address, or any personally identifiable information. The company uses cookies to help track the effectiveness of online ads and to serve the more relevant ads to consumers.

If you would like to remove and/or opt out of Dstillery’s cookies, you can do so in one of three ways:

  • Clear them manually from your browser using the method specified by that browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc).
  • Use the automated Dstillery process listed on this site as Opt-out of Dstillery cookies.

Dstillery’S TECHNOLOGY PRIVACY PRACTICES

Dstillery is a member of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and is in compliance with the NAI’s 2013 Self-Regulatory Code. Dstillery is also in compliance with the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-regulatory Code.

Technology Overview

Dstillery’s technology uses “network neighbor” data to help our clients deliver relevant digital advertisements on websites and mobile apps. “network neighbors” are generally two or more people that visit the same website pages, utilize the same wifi network or use the same mobile apps. For example, a network neighbor might be someone whose social networking profile page you’ve visited, used the same mobile application you’ve used or someone that visits the same website that you visit. Network neighbors are likely to share many similar interests, hobbies, and other key demographic characteristics with you, although we don’t typically know what (if any) interests or hobbies are shared by any group of network neighbors. Rather, Dstillery believes that if you’re interested in a particular product or service, your network neighbors are likely to also be interested in that product or service. Therefore, by understanding whom your network neighbors are and what they like, the company’s proprietary technology will do a better job determining the digital ads that are likely to be of interest to you.

Dstillery’s technology collects information about the website(s) that you visit, the mobile apps that you use and the ads that you see. You may encounter our technology when: Dstillery or one of our clients purchases digital ads on a website that you visit or a mobile app that you use or when one of our clients places a web beacon on a website that you visit.

The company uses the information collected in order to help make the digital ads you see more relevant to you, and for ad delivery and reporting purposes. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

Types of Information We Collect via Our Technology

Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
The company’s technology doesn’t collect Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”).

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”) via our Technology, including but not limited to browser type, operating system, Internet Service Provider, IP address, and basic ad serving information such as the time and date an ad is served, the name of the mobile app or URLs from the web page visited. We also work with partners to enable our clients to bring their offline data into our systems for use by our Technology. All of the data collected by our Technology is de-identified prior to being used for ad targeting, and our Technology does not collect or use sensitive health information. Similarly, where we use precise location information such as GPS coordinates obtained from a mobile app, we have a reasonable process to de-identify that information.

Cookies, Web Beacons
Dstillery’s technology uses cookies, web beacons and similar technologies in order to help make the digital advertisements you see are more relevant to you. Dstillery uses cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to understand browsing, buying and other internet usage activities so that we can better target and measure the success of digital ad campaigns and the campaigns of our clients.

Public Forums
Our Web site offers publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at privacy@Dstillery.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

Dstillery retains some data collected via its technology in its original form for up to 30 days in order to ensure that our technology is functioning properly. After 30 days, all original raw data is deleted; anonymized data may be stored for up to 3 years for research purposes. We also store Non-PII in cookies, which generally expire in 9 months.

Controlling The Use Of Your Information

Dstillery does not rent, sell or share your PII with non-affiliated third parties without your consent. The company may, however, share PII with trusted third-party partners. These third party contractors are prohibited from using the information for purposes other than performing services for Dstillery.

The company may share aggregate data collected on the website or via its technology with unaffiliated third parties. For example, Dstillery may disclose that digital ads offering ‘country music’ ring tones receive more clicks than those offering ‘classic rock music’ ring tones. This information cannot be used to contact or identify any person individually.

Dstillery may disclose your information to third parties when obligated to do so by law and in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected, or actual prohibited activities, including but not limited to fraud and situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person.

Finally, Dstillery may transfer information, including any PII, to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate change. If Dstillery is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY
This privacy policy is subject to change. If the company plans to make any material or substantive changes in the way it uses the PII collected through this website, it will post a clear and conspicuous notice on the website and in this privacy policy prior to the changes being made.
