Some examples of services Audiodigz routinely works with are Localytics, Crashlytics, and other mobile analytics and data solutions. In order to work with said services, Audiodigz will share certain user information, but will only do so when necessary. Although Audiodigz is not responsible for the Privacy Policy or Data Security of said third party services, we emphasize data security and integrity as a top priority when selecting services to work with.

Audiodigz uses aggregate and de-indentified user data to perform platform-scale analysis, optimizations, and advertisement targeting and retargeting. This data may be shared with third parties, but only once any personally identifiable information (email address, name) has been removed or hashed.

5 - Cookies and technology

Audiodigz uses cookies and related technology to enhance the Platform, provide you with a consistent experience, record login and registration information, and to serve you more relevant

advertisements. Some ads served by third parties may use limited information about you and your interaction with the Platform to enhance the targeting or retargeting of advertisements and marketing campaigns.

A cookie is a small file placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website which helps our site and our 3rd party advertising and data partners recognize your device the next time you visit the site. Cookies are essential for many simple functions such as recognizing a repeat visitor as logged in, and providing access to your account, favorites, playlists, and profile. Audiodigz utilizes two common types of cookies - session based cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay active until deleted or deactivate after a set period of time). Other technologies include pixel tags (transparent images which help us determine if a page or email has been viewed by a user), web beacons (also known as web bugs, which serve a similar function to pixel tags), and web storage. Additionally, mobile users may be tracked using Device ID and/or hashed data to identify repeat mobile usage. These combined technologies are used both by Audiodigz and our 3rd party partners to ensure essential Platform functionality; target, serve, measure, and track advertising delivery, targeting, optimization, and performance; measure Platform analytics and usage; and to measure user and audience behavior, trends, demographics, and location.

Audiodigz does not currently respond to or acknowledge Do Not Track (DNT) requests.
