We receive and/or collect the following types of data and information about Customers, the Users:
We regularly receive and collect non-personally-identifying information from Customer's websites (desktop or mobile) ("Customer's Websites"). This sort of information may include, among other things, general, anonymous information about the Users, their use patterns within such Customer's Websites, whether or not directly related to such Users engagement with Carambola's services, , information about the device used by the Users (e.g., device type, operating system, browser type, language preference referring site). Such information will not identify a User personally.
We receive and collect non-personally-identifying information concerning use of our services by Users, such as how, what and when a User views or interacts with content and materials displayed by our services. For example, We may infer data from individuals' who replied and answered to the quizzes delivered by our service or the results thereof. We may also collect the Internet protocol (IP) address of those who use or interact with our services or our customers' services.
Sometimes We receive data from our partners, publishers, advertisers, commercial customers and other third parties[probably unnecessary in light of the generality of the previous statement] that help us (or them) deliver ads, understand the Users' or their users or anyone whom have interaction with our services in order to provide such entities with insights into what the Users or their users are interested in, maximize the effectiveness of ads, and generally make our services better.
We have developed a technology that uses the information and data collected from a page in order to identify the content on the Customers' Website, such as recognizing categories, segments, subjects, people, sports, teams and many other characteristics, in order to provide the Users, by a way of displaying to them on the Customers' Website, the most relevant tailored content from our library as well as relevant ads. For example, if a Customer's website has information or content about food and cooking, We may provide the Users who visit the Customer's Website with relevant recipes, cooking tips or information relating to nutrition. Alternatively, if we analyze to the information from answers received by a User who participated in a quiz that he/she is interested in rugby, we may provide him/her with information regarding MVPs, key figures in the field or upcoming matches. We may also display ads on Customer's Websites by Advertisers who engage us to display advertisements to individuals that, based on our analysis, are likely to have an affinity towards their products.
Furthermore, We may use and analyze the information regarding Users and use of our Services, for example traffic patterns, Users' demographics and behavior, in order to measure and understand the level of engagement our services generate, as well as the effectiveness of a certain ad and other content, for general business analytics and in order to provide for a more personalized experience.
