Information We Collect

Personal Information

In the course of advertisement delivery, FatTail does not collect any Personal Information. We only collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, address, e-mail, and other personally identifiable information that you choose to provide us with or that one of our clients has provided us with in order to use our Services (“Personal Information”). For e-mail publications from our clients, e-mail addresses may be joined with the information provided at our client’s Web site and may be augmented with other data sources. However, FatTail does not link e-mail addresses to any other Web browsing activities or clickstream data.

Usage Data

We collect anonymous data about users of our Site and Services (“Usage Data”). For example, each time you use the Site we automatically collect the type of Web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits to the Site. We also collect data regarding whether you responded to an ad delivered. This anonymous information, however, does not identify any specific person. We use Usage Data to improve the quality of our Site and Services and to measure ad effectiveness on behalf of FatTail’s advertiser and e-mail newsletter publisher clients who specifically request it.

Service Providers

From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other businesses whom we believe trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by FatTail.
