Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Overview

Congoo LLC and its network of owned and partnered publishers ("Congoo LLC") places importance on the privacy of our clients and their businesses. We adhere to the policies regarding privacy and security outlined below. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at privacy@congoo.com. Please familiarize yourself with the below sections that are applicable to you.

Ad Serving

Congoo LLC partners with numerous companies to provide online advertisements to "End Users" which are human users across various websites on the internet. As an End User browses the web, he or she may visit web-pages that include references to Congoo LLC’s advertising service. When this happens, an End User’s browser may request advertisements from Congoo LLC’s system.
When Congoo LLC receives these requests, we may record information about this interaction (as well as any further interaction with our advertisements such as clicks, mouse movements, etc.) including the End User’s IP address and time of request, information about the general geographical location from which an End User is viewing an advertisement and other information made available by the browser.

Additionally, Congoo LLC employs small text files stored on your web browser (otherwise known as cookies) for the purpose of better tailoring advertisements to an End User’s preferences over time. These cookies may include a unique anonymous identifier along with information about the particular types of content in which the End User has shown interest.

On occasion, partner sites, vendors or internally run surveys may provide us with additional information about End Users. In these situations, all information is kept entirely anonymous and does not include any type of personally identifiable information. Congoo LLC only accepts this information from organizations with clearly available and visible privacy policies.

Congoo LLC does not sell information it collects about End Users. However, Congoo LLC may share data about aggregate usage statistics with the public or other businesses with whom we work.

The capture, storage and analysis of information are solely for the purposes of ensuring a positive End User experience, eliminating fraudulent activity, and system administration.

Personal information provided by an advertiser will be combined with information about its purchasing patterns of Congoo LLC’s products and services, performance of its advertisements, and all other information provided by the advertiser. This information will be used to, improve the relevancy of ad results and any other use deemed helpful to the Congoo LLC enterprise. Congoo LLC regularly shares this information with key partners on an individual basis. Furthermore, Congoo LLC and its partners may use this information to contact the advertiser about additional products and services.


An advertiser has the right to terminate their relationship with Congoo LLC in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the advertiser’s contract with Congoo LLC. However, all information captured about the advertiser will remain the property of Congoo LLC indefinitely.

Organizations We Work With

Congoo LLC provides access to organizations we work with on Congoo LLC’s Premium Advertising Network to manage their own advertising networks. Those relationships are managed under contracts between Congoo LLC and the respective partners. The campaign management tools which Congoo LLC provides to many of its partners allow each such partner to view all relevant information of Congoo LLC’s advertisers whose ads are being displayed on that partner’s site. Such information includes bidding data, spend data, topics and placements viewed and purchased.
