AudienceView as Data Processor
We collect and process personal information on behalf of our clients in the provision of our services. In these circumstances, AudienceView is acting as a data processor and our clients remain the data controller in respect of personal information they provide to us. To the extent that we are acting as data processor, we will process such personal information in accordance with our customer’s instructions and any agreement in place with our customers. AudienceView will only use such personal information for the purposes of providing the services for which our clients have engaged us.
Our clients are responsible for ensuring that the privacy of individuals whose personal information they are processing is respected, including communicating to these individuals in their own privacy policies with whom the individual’s personal information is being shared and by whom it is being processed.
As a data processor, AudienceView may share personal information where instructed by our clients (the data controller). With our client’s specific or general authorisation, we may also share personal information with third party service providers (sub-processors) who work for AudienceView and who are subject to security and confidentiality obligations.
Details of all sub-processors engaged by AudienceView from time to time can be viewed here: audienceview.com/legal/subprocessors
Moreover, AudienceView may provide personal information to comply with a subpoena, warrant or other court order, government institution requesting the information upon lawful authority, or as may be otherwise required by law.
Where AudienceView is acting as a data processor, we will refer any request from an individual for access to personal information which we hold about them to our clients. AudienceView will not respond directly to the request.
AudienceView will retain personal information which we process on behalf of our clients for as long as needed to provide services to our customers and in accordance with any agreement in place with our clients.
Personal information does not include information that is aggregated or anonymized in such a manner that it cannot be connected to any individual. We may anonymise and aggregate the personal information we process in such a way as to ensure that individuals cannot be identified from it. We may use this anonymised and aggregated information for our own purposes including for testing our systems, research, data analysis, developing new services and improving the Sites and our services. We may share this anonymized and aggregated information with third parties.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data to Third Parties
We may share your personal information with our group companies and affiliates as necessary to carry out the purposes for which the information was supplied or collected (i.e. to provide the services you have requested).
In addition, AudienceView may disclose information about you:
- in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;

- if necessary to protect the vital interests of a person; and
- to enforce or apply our terms and conditions or to establish, exercise or defend the rights of AudienceView, our staff, customers or others.
To deliver services to you, it is necessary for us to transfer your personal information outside of the UK and European Economic Area (“EEA”) to our affiliates/group companies and our service providers and business partners located outside the UK and EEA. This includes the USA and Canada.
The UK government and European Commission have each decided that Canada provides adequate levels of data protection.
Where personal information is transferred to and stored in a country not determined by the European Commission or UK government as providing adequate levels of protection for personal information, we take steps to provide appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information, including by entering into standard contractual clauses with recipients, obliging them to protect your personal information.
If you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of the UK or EEA (as applicable), please contact us using the details set out above.
Security of Your Personal Data
AudienceView uses appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect personal information both online and offline from unauthorized use, loss, alteration or destruction. We use industry standard physical and procedural security measures to protect information from the point of collection to the point of destruction. This includes but is not limited to: encryption, firewalls, access controls, policies and other procedures to protect information from unauthorized access.
Only authorized personnel and third party service providers are permitted access to personal information, and that access is limited by need. Where data processing is carried out on our behalf by a third party, we take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are in place to prevent unauthorized disclosure of personal information.
Despite these precautions, however, AudienceView cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted over the Internet or that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to personal information. In the event of a data breach, AudienceView have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where required to do so by law.
If you have any questions about security on our Sites, you can contact us as set out in “Contacting Us” above.
How Long We Keep Your Personal Data
Your personal information will not be kept for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and processed. We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active, as defined below, or as needed to provide you with services you have requested.
The criteria we use for retaining different types of personal information, includes the following:
- General queries – when you make an enquiry via our Sites or contact us by email or telephone, we will retain your information for as long as necessary to respond to your queries. After this period, we will not hold your personal information for longer than one year if we have not had any active subsequent contact with you;
- Direct marketing – where we hold your personal information on our database for direct marketing purposes, we will retain your information for no longer than two years if we have not had any active subsequent contact with you.

Where you provide consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time and free of charge, but without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Right to Object
You have the right to object at any time to our processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
Where we process your information based on our legitimate interests
You also have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal information which is based on our legitimate interests. Where you object on this ground, we shall no longer process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

In certain circumstances, you have the right to:
