COLLECTION, USE, AND RETENTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (PII)
We collect PII via this website when it is provided to us. The PII we collect may include name, address, phone number, email address, or any other information provided to us. We use the PII collected via this website for business purposes, such as marketing, recruiting and hiring, responding to general inquiries or customer support requests, and in the course of providing services to customers.

COLLECTION, USE, AND RETENTION OF NON-PII
We collect non-PII on our website using cookies, web beacons, and tags for the operation of the site (e.g. managing user sessions), including analyzing site usage, detecting and preventing malicious behavior on the site, and improving the content and organization of the site. We also engage other companies that will use similar methods to collect non-PII on our website for analyzing site usage.
We also use non-PII we collect to advertise our business on other sites, including through the AppNexus Platform. When we do so, we act as a customer of the platform, using our own information, and we do not use or mix our information with the proprietary information of other Platform customers. You can learn more about the AppNexus Platform in the AppNexus Platform Privacy Statement, where you can also learn about how to opt out of having the Platform used by us and others for interest-based advertising.
We will not rent, share, or sell to third parties the PII we collect via AppNexus.com, except for the reasons stated in this Privacy Statement.
We may share non-PII or PII with affiliates, subsidiaries, vendors, or other third parties to perform services on our behalf that are related to marketing and operating AppNexusâ€™s business.
We may disclose your information to third parties when we reasonably believe we are obligated to do so by law, and in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual prohibited activities, including but not limited to fraud and situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person.
We may transfer information, including any PII, to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate change.
