Innovid and Consumer Privacy

Data Protection and Consumer Privacy is Paramount to Innovid:

As the only independent omni-channel advertising and analytics platform built for television, Innovid is dedicated to a high standard of consumer privacy and data protection, while maintaining quality online advertising services to various advertisers, agencies, publishers and other businesses across various third party websites and online media. 

Innovid has restrictive policies for the collection, use and sharing of consumer data. We maintain membership with the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), and also maintain accreditation with the Media Rating Council (MRC).

Innovid’s collection of data generally consists of basic data elements associated with advertisements served or measured by Innovid, such as impressions, clicks, mouse movements, viewing duration, IP address, date and time of interaction, information about the general geographical location from which a consumer is viewing an advertisement, device type, and other generic identifiers made available by the browser or device. Innovid collects these data elements on behalf of its clients in a privacy-compliant manner for the clients’ legitimate business interests and purposes, in order to effectively measure and evaluate the performance of the client’s advertising campaigns, deliver, schedule and sequence ads, administer the client’s account, and provide the client with engagement analysis.

At a client’s request, Innovid may assist the client to target its ads based on the client’s first-party data or based on data from the client’s selected data management platform. Innovid also offers frequency and ad personalization features such as ad sequencing and creative decisioning based on factors such as general geographic location. However, Innovid does not create user segments or user profiles. Innovid also does not collect any categories of data deemed sensitive under applicable laws or NAI standards. In a limited number of use cases, the client also has the option to have Innovid collect consumer email addresses or phone numbers on its behalf from selected advertising formats; in these cases, such as opt-in data is used solely to fulfill the client’s request.

Please read the Innovid Privacy Policy for further details regarding Innovid’s data collection, usage and sharing practices.

Innovid Upholds Consumer Choice:

We believe consumers should have the right to control how they are targeted across online media. Innovid respects the consumer’s choice to opt-out of interest-based advertising. For more information regarding the opt-out options offered by Innovid, please see here. 

Innovid is also in compliance with the standards set by the NAI, the leading self-regulatory association comprised of third-party digital advertising companies, and maintains membership with NAI and DAA. For additional information on NAI standards and how to use advertising choice mechanisms, please see NAI page located here.

Security and Compliance with Applicable Laws and Regulations:

Innovid is committed to data security and takes a variety of measures in line with industry practice to safeguard the data in its possession from unauthorized alteration, destruction, access or misuse. We maintain tight controls over all the data we collect, retaining it in firewalled and secured databases with strictly limited and controlled access rights, designed to ensure that the data is secure. Additional security measures include encryption of personal information at rest and in transit, maintaining a strict password policy, the use of multi-factor authentication for key systems, maintaining antivirus measures and vulnerability management policies, and the use of various security technologies designed to prevent unauthorized activity.

Innovid maintains compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Innovid is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework promulgated by the US Department of Commerce as a mechanism to enable the transfer of personal data from the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland to the United States, and in addition we have in place the EU-approved Standard Contractual Clauses with data exporters from the EU. We have appointed a data protection officer, have a process for responding in a timely manner to data subjects seeking to exercise their rights under GDPR, and take a proactive approach to putting the necessary contractual provisions in place with our vendors and clients. 

Innovid has taken a comprehensive approach to CCPA compliance and will continue to monitor and adjust our approach as the law continues to evolve, to ensure we maintain compliance with the latest regulations, requirements and best practices. As between Innovid and its clients, Innovid is a service provider and does not sell personal information as contemplated under CCPA. 

Data policy and privacy regulations are dynamic and constantly changing. In addition to performing yearly internal audits, Innovid continues to monitor its compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
