3/ PURPOSE OF POLICY
Moxielinks is a company that specialises in data marketing, whose activities consist primarily of collecting and Processing sociodemographic, browsing and interaction data, which are used to qualify, enhance and segment its Partners’ audiences.
The Data we collect through our Partners are pseudonymised, i.e. converted or manipulated via identifiers in the form c52c40bb75bc6b3209cffac354d81b7a or 20171120_XXXX6b25e5164555f79bbb95865XXXX, which means that the User cannot be identified directly. We do not, under any circumstances, collect Data such as their name, postal address or phone number, which would allow the User to be identified directly.
Our activity does not, at any time, involve collecting Data that would directly identify the User or allow us to identify them directly. We use various technologies, including placing Cookies and other similar technologies, to collect and store non-personal data only, when a User views the Site of one of our Partners, or uses one of its services.
Using these Cookies and other similar technologies, we are able to analyse Users’ areas of interest through their browsing habits and in particular:
• their activity on Sites run by our Partners (number of pages viewed, products viewed, searches run, etc.); • geographical information based on their IP addresses and connections, in particular the country where Users where located when they connected. Find out more.
It is important to remember that Moxielinks does not collect any Sensitive Data and that no Data category or segment is created specifically for targeting minors.
Our aim is essentially to make it possible, using a small amount of apparently insignificant information, such as searching for a product or reading an article, to determine the User’s areas of interest or probable intentions, and personalise advertising and commercial messages accordingly. In brief, we allow our Customers to interact with the User where this is relevant, and not to do so where it is not; this is less frustrating for the User and avoids our Customers investing their marketing budget in advertisements that are not effective.
Find out more, via a dedicated page that outlines the technologies we use to collect our Data.
4/ USE OF DATA
Moxielinks seeks to understand and respond to Users’ expectations by collecting browsing and interaction data. Moxielinks’s ambition is to allow its Customers to target Users with relevant offers that match their areas of interest. As a result, the data we collect then allow our Customers to provide and improve the products and services they offer to consumers. The process allows our Customers to post content and offers in line with Users’ interests. For example, if a User views and browses a (merchant or other) site, their browsing and interaction data will be collected and can then be used by our Customers so that the next time a User browses, they will see content and advertisements that match their areas of interest as closely as possible. All the Data collected are retained for a limited time, based on the purpose for which they were processed and in accordance with the regulations in effect. Our Cookies are valid for a maximum of 365 days.
5/ TRANSFER OF DATA
The Data we collect many be processed on servers located within or outside the European Union. In the event of a transfer of Data, we provide guarantees that are compliant with European Union law and require and ensure that a high level of Data protection is implemented by our Subcontractors, Partners or Customers around the world.

6/ DATA SECURITY
We undertake to process the Data we collect in strict confidence. Moxielinks places particular importance on the security of Users’ Data by using technologies that provide security in line with the most demanding standards, using SSL, hashing/encryption and firewall technologies.

7/ DATA SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
Moxielinks does not share Users’ Data with businesses, organisation or non-Customer third parties unless we believe that there is a reasonable justification for accessing, using or disclosing said Data:
7.1 To our subsidiaries and service providers
It is possible that we may, in the context of our activities, transfer Data to our subsidiaries or Subcontractors that process the Data collected on our behalf, and in accordance with our instructions and this Policy. Under no circumstances may our Subcontractors appoint another Subcontractor without our prior authorisation in writing or use the Data for any purpose other than those described in this Policy.
7.2 In response to a request from an authorised public body
In response to court summons or orders, judicial or administrative procedures or any other request issued by the competent authorities to which Moxielinks must submit, or to establish or exercise its rights, or to defend itself against legal proceedings; To protect itself from any infringement of Moxielinks’s or Users’ rights, property or security pursuant to and in accordance with the law; To avoid, reveal or deal with fraudulent activities, security breaches or any technical problem that might affect Moxielinks’s servers.
8/ FREEDOM OF CHOICE AND CONTROL OF DATA
It is also essential to inform Users about how we collect their Data, to allow them to make informed choices and exercise their rights in full knowledge of the facts.
In accordance with the applicable regulations, collecting Data using Cookies and other similar technologies is subject to obtaining the User’s agreement, which can be expressed and modified at any time, using any of the methods offered to them to exercise their choices. Our Partners are responsible for obtaining their agreement to save Cookies to their Device when they browse to their Sites or use their services, in accordance with the applicable regulations. Moxielinks cannot be held liable in this respect.
In accordance with the GDPR, we allow Users the right to access and erase their Data. In order to fulfil requests for access and erasure, we ask Users to provide us with:
• The User’s relevant credentials: name or identifier of the Moxielinks Cookie. Without these technical details, we are unable to compare the Data we hold with a User who wishes to exercise a right of access or erasure. Users can click here to find the identifier associated with the internet browser of the Device they are currently using. • A statement on their honour that the User is the only user of their Device or has exclusive control over the use of the Device whose Data may have been collected by Moxielinks. If it is likely that said Device may have been used by a third party with the User’s agreement or without any objection by them, the latter must also undertake to obtain the agreement of said third parties in writing, so that we can satisfy the request for access or erasure, insofar as said access request is likely to reveal information about the browsing history of said third parties. • A valid identity document. Une pièce d’identité valide.
If the User no longer wishes any or all of their Data to be gathered and saved by Moxielinks, they may exercise their right to object by clicking here and deactivating the gathering of their Data by Moxielinks. If the User expresses an objection to the gathering of their Data, they can be asked again for their consent through our Partners’ services.
We ask Users to note that exercising their right of objection implies destroying the Cookie that contains the Moxielinks identifier and that Moxielinks may therefore no longer be able to fulfil subsequent access or erasure requests on technical grounds. If the User wishes to exercise a prior right to access or erase Data, it must be expressed in accordance with the terms set out in the previous paragraph. If the User wishes to retain the possibility of exercising a right to access or erase Data, they must record and archive their Moxielinks identifier (viewable here) prior to exercising their right to object.
However, it is important to note that deleting Cookies will remove the information needed to process the User’s objection. The same may apply when browsers are changed or updated. The User will therefore have to reconfirm their decision to exercise their right to object.
Users may also exercise their choices directly in their internet browser. The procedure for managing Cookies and Cookie preferences varies slightly between browsers. Users can view the steps for managing cookies in their browser’s help menu.
• for Internet Explorer™ • for Safari™ • for Chrome™ • for Firefox™ • for Opera™
Note: exercising your right to object will not prevent advertisements being displayed. Only advertisements that use Moxielinks’s personalisation services will cease. In other words, the User will no longer be shown advertising that reflects their areas of interest through the use of Moxielinks Cookies, but will continue to be shown advertisements whose content will no longer necessarily match their areas of interest, and may be dubious.
9/ CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
This Policy may be subject to change. Any change to the rules of our Confidentiality Policy will be accessible as soon as it comes into effect on this page.
