2. How we collect it

Part of the integration process between Yieldify and the Customer is the placement of a Javascript tag (either by the Customer or Yieldify) in the header on every page of the Customer’s website. The Javascript tag can be installed in a Tag Manager such as Google Tag Manager, or directly on the Customer’s site.

Once the Javascript tag is installed and activated it will collect personal data from users of the Customer’s website, place cookies to uniquely identify users, and send this data to Yieldify’s data collection servers as HTTPs requests.

3. Why we process the data

  • Yieldify processes the data for the purposes of providing Services to Customers.

  • Anonymised/de-identified personal data is processed by Yieldify for the purposes of improving the Services and benchmarking activities.

4. How the data is processed

Yieldify processes the data in various ways depending on the specific and desired functionality of the Services purchased by the Customer. Some use cases are as follows:

  • Aggregation for the purpose of campaign performance metric reporting

  • Event deduplication attribution for the purpose of generating A/B Testing Results

  • Filtering and presentation of lists of email addresses (lead generation)

  • Aggregation of pageviews in real time for the purpose of social proof campaigns

  • Data is sent via Connector Engine (subcontractor) to Email Service Providers (ESPs) so that the Customer can utilise its existing ESPs

  • Data events are sent to the Customer’s Google Analytics so that the Customer can visualise end user interaction data within their existing analytics tool.

5. Where is the data processed

  • The data is processed both inside and outside the European Economic Area

  • The Customer's data will not be processed outside the European Economic Area unless one of the adequate safeguards outlined under the Applicable Data Protection Laws have been ensured in relation to such data transfer

6. Storage duration of the data
