Privacy Policy

Services do not knowingly directly collect personal information, and Vistar Media does not use any such information that may be inadvertently collected in any way. We do not collect, create or share individual consumer profiles for the purpose of buying, selling or targeting advertising, and thus we have no use for and no reason to collect personal information through the Services. However, because our customers often control the deployment of the technology necessary to deliver Services, we cannot guarantee there is no such data collected in our systems.

We receive information about consumers from third parties to enable targeted advertising on the website(s) and application(s) that we support. The collection and use of that data is governed by the privacy policy and legal terms of the data collector and the website using the data; it is not governed by Vistar Media.
