Adcombi does not collect personally identifiable data such as your name, email, address or phone number from your visit to its servers and domains, including but not limited to adcombi.com, adstats.nl and its subdomains. Unless you voluntarily supply this data through e.g. the “Contact Us” form or any other publicly available contact channel or fill this in in our software. If doing so, you agree that your contact details are correct and rightfully yours. They will be used solely by Adcombi to respond to your query or setup your account on request.
By using Adcombi’s services, you’re accepting the reception of cookies as well as our cookies policy. You can disable or refuse our cookies by following the instructions below.
Cookies are small text files generated by the websites you’ve visited that allow the collection of statistical data. These cookies contain information of your navigation and also analyze the way you interact with a website. By themselves, cookies pose no risk since they do not contain virus in any form nor do they spy on your computer contents to compromise security. They are used to make online surfing faster and easier by making the sites you’ve visited remember who you are.
There are two kinds of cookies with different uses and contents:
– Temporary cookies collect information used during your navigation session. These cookies
are automatically erased at the end of your session. Nothing is stocked on your computer once you finish your navigation.
– Persistent cookies serve to collect and use anonymous browsing data. These data allows
websites to recognize you and to adapt themselves consequently. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for a period of time defined by the website that can vary from
some minutes to several years. You can remove persistent cookies by following the
directions provided by your Internet browser’s “help” file.
Adcombi collaborates with partners who write the third-party cookies that will be used by announcers in order to show you pertinent ads based on your browsing history. These cookies don’t stock personal information that could allow other websites to identify you.
Collection of cookies
In order to allow an optimal navigation of the website https://adcombi.com/* and a better performance of interfaces and applications, Adcombi could install a cookie on your computer. The only purpose is to have a good administration of the website’s services.
Adcombi ad serving and cookies
One of the Adcombi services is to optimize the content of the ad placement served from the Adcombi adserver (https://serving.adcombi.com/*) based on the location where the ad placement is served. These ad placement can read the cookies that are set from the adcombi.com domain. These cookies are not stored with adcombi, only read from the browser of the user. These adcombi domain cookies can contain information from a clients website that you have visited. The advertiser has to request the opt-in for placing adcombi cookies. Once the adcombi cookies are stored in the browser, this information can be read by the adcombi.com domain to show different information in the ad placement.
An example of the adcombi cookie:
Adcombi saves anonymized information from the ad placement in order to provide the services to the adcombi clients, for administration purposes and for other purposes including research and analysis. The information collected from the ad placement contains:
