Background Information
What is in this document? This document provides information about our digital advertising technology platform (the Platform), which enables our clients to buy and sell digital advertising, and then describes our policies about data collection and use.

Our goal is to be transparent about our business by describing our technology in simple terms so that Internet users can understand our practices. We know that this is complicated, so if you have any questions about this information, please contact us here.
What is the Audigent Platform?
Audigent is not an ad network or a data broker. Audigent is a digital advertising technology platform. By "platform," we mean a technology that provides tools for advertisers, or buyers, to purchase ad space and influencers to connect advertisers with audiences. Buyers want to use their advertising dollars efficiently by reaching the right audiences, and by measuring the effectiveness of their ads. To accomplish these goals, buyers use our Platform to engage in a variety of digital advertising techniques, including interest-based advertising, real-time (or programmatic) advertising, contextual, and location-based advertising.

The Platform is operated by Predictive Pop Inc. d/b/a Audigent, 200 Varick St., Suite 514, New York, NY, 10014, USA.
What Do We Mean by Platform Data?
The Platform is designed to use certain types of data, that all together we call Platform Data. It includes data generated through the Platform as well as data clients receive from other sources and then use on the Platform, or that they buy or sell through the Platform. This may include information about Internet users’ browsers and devices, such as:

the type of browser and its settings, information about the device’s operating system, cookie information, information about other identifiers assigned to the device, and the IP address from which the device accesses a client’s website or mobile application - where we are entitled by law to do so, information about the user’s activity on that device, including web pages and mobile apps visited or usedinformation about the geographic location of the device when it accesses a website or mobile application inferences or information about users’ interests that are created, acquired, bought, sold, or used by our clients. Most of the data that the Platform receives from browsers and devices might also be called “HTTP header data” or “clickstream data.”

We do not allow data that by itself identifies an individual, such as name, address, phone number, email address, or government identifier, to be stored or used on the Platform. Audigent does not allow data that directly identifies an individual to be collected or used on the Platform.
Glossary of Basic Terms
Ad Server
An ad server, in its simplest form, is the computer responsible for delivering an ad to be shown in a web page or a mobile app. Today, communications may be sent to several servers in the process of selecting and delivering an ad. This occurs in a matter of milliseconds (thousandths of a second).
Beacons, Pixels, Tags, and SDKs
Beacons (also sometimes referred to as web beacons or pixels) and tags are elements included in web pages to enable companies to collect data, serve advertising, and provide related services, such as measuring ad effectiveness or preventing fake ad traffic. They do this by allowing communication between a web browser and a server. A beacon is a small transparent image that is placed on a web page. A tag is a small piece of website code that is run by the web browser. An SDK is a piece of computer code that developers include in their mobile applications.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in a web browser by a website or ad server. By saving information in a cookie, websites and servers can remember preferences or recognize web browsers from one visit to another or from one website to another.
Companies sometimes use alternative methods that perform functions similar to cookies in order to identify unique browsers or devices. For example, some platforms, such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Play Services for Android, provide unique IDs to be used for advertising. Additionally, mathematical or statistical techniques are sometimes used to try to identify devices. These "Statistical Identifiers" are not 100% accurate. Non-Cookie Technology may be utilized both for Ad Delivery and Reporting (ADR), and as part of Interest-Based Advertising (IBA)
ID Syncing:

ID synching (sometimes also referred to as cookie synching) is a common and long-standing process in the digital advertising industry. It enables advertisers to link up data from multiple advertising platforms, and helps advertisers buy ads in more than one place.

Here’s an example of how it works.

Let’s say you sell a product on your website. A customer visits your site. Your website stores a cookie to identify that customer’s browser, and the cookie contains an ID of 12345. You then associate that ID with information about what the customer shopped for on your site. If you want to then use that information to advertise to that user, you might go to an online advertising marketplace to buy ads. In order to buy the right ads and show them to the right user, you’ll need to match your ID, which is 12345 to the ID that the marketplace has assigned to the same customer (which let’s say for this example is ABCDE). The result is a record that says ID 12345 = Marketplace ID ABCDE. That way, when the marketplace offers to sell you an ad to be shown to ABCDE, your system will know that ABCDE is the same as 12345, and you can pick the right ad to show the customer.

Cross-Device Mapping
Cross-device mapping is the process of making inferences that certain devices are related to each other (i.e. that they belong to the same user or household). This is done using either “statistical” or “deterministic” methods (or a combination). “Statistical” refers to using mathematical techniques to make intelligent guesses that certain devices are related. “Deterministic” means using known relationships, for example logins that use the same email address or other personal information, to link multiple devices to a single user. When this method is used companies typically mask the actual email address.
Interest-based Advertising
Interest-based advertising (IBA) uses information collected across multiple web sites or mobile apps to predict users' preferences and to show ads that are most likely to be of interest to them. For example, if a user visits a travel site or uses a travel app, she might see travel-related ads on another site or app. Advertisers may also use other information they have or can acquire about users’ interests. Users have choices with respect to this type of advertising, as discussed below.
Precise Geographic Location
Your device may be capable of sharing your precise geographic location with the apps or web pages you visit using that device. Devices use one or more methods to determine your location, including GPS coordinates and information about wi-fi networks in your vicinity. (Geographic location determined from IP address is typically not considered to be “precise.”) Devices such as iPhone or Android phones typically ask for users’ consent before installing or using an app that accesses the device’s precise geographic location. The app, in turn, may make this information available to third-party advertising companies in order to make the ads you see more relevant.
Real-Time Transactions (Also called Real-Time Bidding or Programmatic Advertising):

Advertising buyers are able to bid in "real time" for the opportunity to show an online advertisement when a web page is loaded or an app is used.

The winning bidder gets to show its ad. Of course, the explanations above are simplified. There are many resources available on the web to learn more about these concepts and online advertising in general.

Although we have no responsibility for the content of these sites, we offer the following as good places to learn more:

What Information Do We Collect and Use?
The Audigent Platform allows Audigent to collect and use Platform data The Platform ingests information provided by third-party sources to allow clients to use such data to target ads. To do this, clients and data providers may use ID synching to enable the use of this information through the Platform. Audigent does not collect, use, or allow its clients to transfer to or use on the Platform, data that, by itself, directly identifies an individual, such as name, address, phone number, email address, or government identifier. We also prohibit certain categories of sensitive data from being collected, used, or transferred on the Platform.

What are your choices?

The choices and means Audigent offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of their personal data include:

Opt Out of Interest-Based Advertising: You can opt out of interest-based advertising.

Click below to opt out of having the Platform used to select ads for your browser based on your online web browsing behavior.

When you opt out, an opt out cookie (from will be stored in your web browser. The Platform will know the choice you have made when it sees your opt out cookie, and will apply your choice to all companies using the Platform. If you block or delete the opt out cookie, you will not be opted out and will need to allow cookies from Audigent and renew your opt-out choice.

Opt Out Important things to note about the opt out: Blocked cookies: The opt out cookie may not work if your browser is configured to block third-party cookies.

Deleting or protecting opt outs: If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again. There are browser plugins to help you preserve your opt out cookies. For more information, please visit

Only this browser: The opt out only applies to the browser profile in which you set it. For example, if you set the opt out while using Firefox, but then use Chrome, the opt out will not be active in Chrome. To opt out in Chrome, you will need to repeat the opt out process.

This is because the cookies cannot be read between different browsers or browser profiles. The opt out does not block or delete cookies: It also does not prevent the use of cookies or other technologies for purposes other than selecting ads based on your interests as inferred by your online behavior. If you opt out, data may still be collected about your web browsing activities and you will still see advertising. Ads may be selected, for example, based on the content of the web page in which they are shown.

If you wish to block or delete cookies altogether, you can use web browser settings to do so.

Learn More: To learn more about interest-based advertising, and to access the opt outs of other online advertising companies, visit the Network Advertising Initiative opt out page. Mobile App Opt Out: Mobile device system software such as Apple iOS or Google Play Services provide mechanisms that allow users to opt out of the use of information about their usage of mobile apps to deliver targeted ads to their mobile device. For more information, or to opt out using these mechanisms, consult your device settings (“Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” on Android devices and “Limit Ad Tracking” on iOS devices).

The Opt-Out Cookie alone may not halt ADR and IBA when non-cookie technologies such as mobile deivce IDs are also collected.

Location: Most mobile devices offer you the ability to stop the collection of location information at any time by changing the preferences on your device. You may also be able to stop the collection of location information by particular apps by adjusting the settings for individual apps or following the standard uninstall process to remove specific mobile apps from your device.

Additionally, Audigent is a member of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and adheres with the NAI’s Code. You may visit to find out more about the NAI’s Self-Regulatory Program and to opt out of Audigent and other NAI member company advertising programs.

What are your personal data access rights?

Because we prohibit clients from storing information that directly identifies an individual on the Audigent Platform, it is generally not feasible for us to provide individuals information that is tied to their identities. If you believe that Audigent holds information that would allow us to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information about you, please contact us here. We will seek to provide access to such data, but will not be able to do so when the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  8. Comply with a legal obligation.
  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

Emailing us at

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
