Data Collection

We collect three different types of data: personal information, non-identifiable basic information and  non-identifiable cookies.

Personal Information

We collect your name, email address, phone number and company when you fill out our Contact Us form or when you request content through our website.

Non-identifiable Basic Information

We collect click-stream data, HTTP protocol elements, approximate location, time zone, and search terms. We use this data for research and development, system tracking, helping visitors reach the right page, and to inform future content. This data is non-identifiable. This means we can’t (and have no interest in trying to) use it to identify you or any individual person. We also collect access logs and search strings to improve our site.

Non-identifiable Cookie Information

We collect HTTP cookie data. Again, we use this data for research and development, system tracking, helping visitors reach the right page, and to inform future content and to improve our site. Our cookies are non-identifiable, meaning we can’t (and don’t want to) use them to identify you or any individual person.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of information sent to a browser by a web server. The browser then returns that information to the web server. This is how some web pages “remember” your previous visits; for example, an e-commerce site might use a cookie to remember which items you’ve placed in your online shopping cart. Cookies can also store user preference information, log-in data, etc. Cookies let sites provide you with tailored information.

For additional information on the types of cookies we use or directions on how to withdraw or change your consent, please see our Cookie Declaration.

Data Sharing

We do not share your personal data with anyone outside of 3Q Digital, other than our vendors, which help us operate our business and provide our services.  We will disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.  We may also transfer the information we hold in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (such as in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, dissolution or liquidation) or take steps in anticipation of such a transaction.  We analyze non-identifiable information with Google Analytics for internal use only in order to improve the effectiveness of our website.

If you are a California resident, we provide additional information about our information practices and you may have certain rights with respect to your information. For more information, please see the Supplemental Privacy Notice for California Residents below.

EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

3Q Digital complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States.  3Q Digital has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/

SUPPLEMENTAL PRIVACY NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

This Notice supplements the information in this Privacy Policy and only applies to California residents.

SUMMARY OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

If you are a California resident, California law requires us to provide you with additional information about how we collect, use, and disclose your “personal information” (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)).

Categories of personal information we collect and share.  Throughout this Privacy Policy, we describe the specific pieces of personal information we collect and how we share that information.  Under the CCPA, we also have to provide you with the “categories” of personal information we collect and disclose for “business purposes” (as those terms are defined by applicable law).  Those categories are: identifiers (such as name and email address); commercial information (such as transaction data); internet or other network or device activity (such as unique identifiers, web logs, or other usage data); geolocation information (general location); employment information (such as title and business information); and other information that identifies or can be reasonably associated with you.

How we use these categories of personal information.  We and our service providers may use the categories of personal information we collect from and about you for the following business purposes and commercial (as those terms are defined in applicable law):  

Our or our service provider’s operational purposes;

Auditing consumer interactions on our site (e.g., measuring ad impressions);

Detecting, protecting against, and prosecuting security incidents and fraudulent or illegal activity;

Bug detection and error reporting;

Customizing content that we or our service providers display on the Services (e.g., contextual ads);

Providing the Services (e.g., account servicing and maintenance, customer service, advertising and marketing, analytics, and communication about the Services);

Improving our existing Services and developing new services (e.g., by conducting research to develop new products or features) ;

Other uses that advance our commercial or economic interests, such as third-party advertising and communicating with you about relevant offers from third party partners;

Other uses about which we notify you.

Examples of these types of uses are discussed throughout this Privacy Policy.  We may also use the categories of personal information for compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and we may combine the information we collect (“aggregate”) or remove pieces of information (“de-identify”) to limit or prevent identification of any particular user or device.

Sale of personal information.  The CCPA sets forth certain obligations for businesses that “sell” Personal Data.  Based on the definition of “sell” under the CCPA and under current regulatory guidance, we do not believe we engage in such activity.  We do allow certain third parties to collect certain information about your activity, for example through cookies, as explained in our

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

If you are a California resident, California law provides you with a number of rights regarding your personal information. 

Access.  You have the right to request a copy of certain information we hold about you, as well as a summary of the categories of personal information we have collected or disclosed about you in the last twelve months; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting or sharing that information; and the categories of third parties with whom we shared that information. 

Delete.  You have the right to delete certain information we have about you. 

Financial Incentives.  You have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you (if any).

Consequences for Exercising Rights.  You also have the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising certain of your rights. 

Shine the Light.  You also have the right to request, once per year, that we disclose the identity of any third parties with whom we have shared personal information for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes within the previous calendar year, along with the type of personal information disclosed.

Certain information may be exempt from these rights under applicable law. For example, we need certain types of information so that we can provide you with the Service. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use the Service.

You can exercise any of these rights by emailing privacy@3QDigital.com, or sending a written request to us at: 3Q Digital ATTN: Personal Data Access 25 E Washington Street, Suite 420, Chicago, IL 60602, USA. You may need to give us enough information so that we can be confident of your identity before we can satisfy certain requests.  To do that, you’ll need to give us certain information about you and/or your use of the Services.  You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf.  To do so, you have to give us written authorization for the agent to act on your behalf.  If we need to verify your identity, you’ll need to do that directly with us.
