How we handle certain Personal Information we collect as a business or controller for the products and services we provide including executing connected television campaigns .
Effective Date: November 15, 2023
Information MA May Collect
We receive Personal Information from third party sources in the advertising industry such as CTV television manufacturers, website publishers, and advertising network platforms. This Personal Information can include the internet protocol (“IP”) address used to connect your devices, such as your CTV and computer, to the internet. An IP address is a unique string of numbers that identifies such devices. We may also collect general information about where your device is located such as latitude, longitude, country, region, city, and zip code. We do not collect or use data that directly identifies you as an individual, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, or government identifier.
What MA Does with the Information it Collects
MA uses the Personal Information it collects from third party sources in the advertising industry to conduct research on and analyze the viewing behavior of consumers to determine generally when and where consumers who are most likely to be interested in our clients’ goods and services are watching CTV and what type of content, sometimes including specific shows, those consumers are watching on CTV. As part of this process, we may compare the IP addresses we gather from third party sources in the advertising industry with the IP addresses of consumers that have visited our clients’ websites. We also use the Personal Information we collect to assess the effectiveness of our clients’ CTV advertising campaigns. We may also use this Personal Information for internal operations such as troubleshooting, testing, analytics, attribution, fraud detection, reporting, and research and development for our internal business purposes. We do not use the Personal Information that we collect to target advertising at individual consumers based upon such Personal Information collected over time and across different services.
How MA Discloses Information
MA uses the Personal Information we collect from third party sources in the advertising industry to do the internal research and analyses described above. Personal Information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and MA may share these aggregated results with our clients. We use this information to create aggregated profiles about the CTV viewing characteristics of consumers likely to be interested in our clients’ goods and services. We may also use this information to assess the effectiveness of our clients’ CTV campaigns. This aggregated information is not Personal Information. As such, we generally do not disclose Personal Information to our clients. However, we may disclose Personal Information if we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that the law requires it or when we believe disclosure is necessary to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of actual or suspected fraud or illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer your Personal Information in the event of a merger, acquisition, sale, reorganization, change of ownership, or other similar transaction involving MA.
Security of Your Information
MA uses administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your Personal Information. While we have taken reasonable steps and use best practices to secure your Personal Information, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security of your Personal Information.

Retention of Personal Information
We retain Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collect it, such as creating aggregated profiles about the CTV viewing characteristics of consumers likely to be interested in our clients’ goods and services, assessing the effectiveness of our clients’ CTV campaigns and for the purpose of satisfying any legal, accounting, contractual, or reporting requirements that apply to us.
How to Exercise Your State Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of a state with a State Privacy Law and wish to exercise your privacy rights or you need to obtain this notice in alternative format, write to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Marketing Architects, Inc., 601 Carlson Parkway, Suite 110, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55305, Attn: Privacy.
Since we do not collect Personal Information, such as name, address, telephone number, or email address you will need to provide your IP address in order for us to assist you in exercising your privacy rights. You can find your IP address by using third party lookup services, such as www.ipvoid.com/my-ip (MA does not own or have any affiliation with such sites). Please keep in mind that devices using the same Wi-Fi network may have overlapping IP addresses and IP address can be changed by you or your internet service provider, so you may need to repeat these steps at a later time.
