Duration Media Website Privacy Policy

Website Privacy Policy

Effective date: 1/24/2023

to the Duration Media website privacy policy. Duration Media (“Duration”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) Duration Media is a leading global ad tech company with patented technology and multiple software applications for the digital media industry. We provide an advertising platform (the “Platform”) that enables publishers (our “Publishers”) to serve ads that are more likely to be viewed by the visitors to their websites. This Privacy Policy governs our privacy and data protection practices with respect to our website https://durationmedia.net/ (the “Website”).

We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and pseudonymous information. Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is information that may be used to identify an individual and includes email address, telephone number or postal address. Pseudonymous information doesn’t enable us to identify anyone but may help us recognize a particular browser or device over time, such as a UID placed in a cookie or an IP address. Both PII and pseudonymous information are considered personal data and/or personal information in many places. We believe that maintaining the distinction between what we consider directly identifiable and what we consider to be pseudonymous can be helpful in describing our privacy practices; but recognize that some privacy laws don’t distinguish between the two types of data. 


Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

Our Website is directed to our Publishers, Partners, and vendors which are generally businesses. Duration collects Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) from the Website when you choose to provide it to us. PII is any information that can be used to identify or locate a particular person or entity. This includes, but is not limited to: name, address, telephone number, or email address. For example, you may choose to send PII about yourself in an email, or by completing a form on our Website. Duration uses this information only to contact you to respond to your inquiry.

You may also choose to prove us with your email address or phone number to receive messages from us, but we will always provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of future marketing message and will only send such messages with your consent where consent is required by applicable law. Once collected, Duration will store your PII for a reasonable time for record-keeping purposes. 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Duration also collects pseudonymous personal information (“Non-PII”) from visitors to this Website. Non-PII is information that is not used or intended to be used by us to identify a particular person or entity, and may include your IP address, pages viewed, browser type, Internet browsing and usage habits, Internet Service Provider, domain name, the time/date of your visit to this website, the referring URL and your computer’s operating system. 

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Duration and our third-party partners may use cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the website, and track users’ movements around the Website. You may control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. For more information about cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/.

We also work with a third-party partner to manage our advertising on other sites. Because we enable these third parties on the Website, we may be considered to have sold data to these third parties over the past 12 months. Our third-party partner may use cookies or similar technologies in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. This practice is sometimes called interest-based-advertising. If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising from those partners, click here

We may use third-party service providers such as Google Analytics to monitor and analyze the use of our Website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

If you stop having a business relationship with us, we will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies. 

Cross-Border Transfer of Data

We currently operate primarily to store all data in the U.S., which may have different data protection laws and rules than your jurisdiction. To the extent that our processing requires the transfer of personal data out of the UK, EEA, or Switzerland, we typically use transfer mechanisms such as the Standard Contractual Clauses to effectuate such transfers safely. 

Disclosure of Information to Third Parties, Onward Transfer

Pursuant to running our business, we will share information collected via the Website with trusted third-party partners who may help us to manage the Website and otherwise help us operate our business. The third-party service providers used by Duration include: a) cloud computer, data storage and file storage providers, b) email marketing providers, c) website and b2b sales analytics providers, d) customer relationship management, contact database vendors, data hygiene vendors, survey vendors and project management software providers, e) customer billing systems partners, f) login authentication providers to ensure that the logins to our systems are working efficiently, g) social media platforms for advertising and marketing purposes, h) outsourced computer programmers helping ensure our systems are operating properly, i) auditing, debugging and security vendors. 

These agents work on our behalf and use data only as directed by us under written agreements which outline how they may use such data and require that such third-party agents provide at least the same level of privacy protection as we do.

The company may also share aggregate data collected on the Website with unaffiliated third parties. This information cannot be used to contact or identify any person individually and is not considered personal information or personal data in most places.

Duration may be required to 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 transfer reasonably intended to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, including but not limited to fraud and situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person.

Finally, Duration may transfer information, including any PII or Non-PII, to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate change. If Duration 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 Website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
