Welcome to AdBeacon! AdBeacon is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users to AdBeacon.com and our SaaS platform or “Software(s)” or “Platform”.
What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
Types of information we collect
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit personal information to access certain areas of the Software(s), but if you do not want to disclose certain personal information to us, you will not be able to access certain aspects of the AdBeacon Platform.
We collect personal information when you create an account through the AdBeacon Platform; purchase software services through the Software; work with our team to optimize the software services we provide to you, or receive customer or technical support.
To order software services from AdBeacon through the Software(s) and create an account for the AdBeacon Platform, we require you to provide your name, company name, email address, billing address, phone number, web software URL, title, and additional billing information depending on your preferred method of payment, such as your credit card number and payment method expiration date. You will also need to create a screen name in order to create an account. We also collect information about your company, such as analytics, ad tracking, traffic statics, marketing budgets, conversion rates, sales data and other information related to the visibility, layout, reputation, popularity and success of online marketing campaigns.
Cookies, Web Beacons and Pixels
“Cookies”, “Web Beacons” and “Pixels” are small bits of electronic information that the Software sends to a visitor’s browser and are stored on the visitor’s hard drive. Like many web Softwares, we employ cookies or pixels in certain areas of the Software(s) to allow us to provide information that is targeted to you and to make your online experience more convenient and your advertising more effective.
Cookies and/or pixels are set by the operator of a website (in this case, AdBeacon Platform) and are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than AdBeacon are called “third-party cookies”. Third-Party cookies enable functionality to be provided on or through the Website (for example advertising, interaction with social media sites, analytics, search engine, etc.). Setting these third-party cookies can recognize your computer or mobile device both when you visit our Website, and also when you visit certain other websites.
AdBeacon utilizes first-party and third-party cookies for multiple reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website, Platform and Services to operate, and we refer to these as “necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable AdBeacon Software to track and target the interests of users and enhance the experience of our customers. Third parties serve cookies through Websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes.
Strictly necessary Cookies
A strictly necessary cookie is a type of cookie that is used by the website to function properly, without which the site would not work. This type of cookie does not collect any personally identifiable information about you and does not track your browsing habits.
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide the Service to you through our Platform. Strictly necessary cookies allow you to use our Services and enable access to various features such as a unique user session and enable access to secure areas.
Performance cookies are cookies used specifically for gathering data on how visitors use a website, which pages of a website are visited most often, or if they get error messages on web pages. These cookies monitor only the performance of the site as the user interacts with it. These cookies are used to enhance and improve the performance of our Websites but are not essential. These cookies collect information that helps us understand how the Websites and Services are being used by our customers, how effective our marketing campaigns are. These cookies may collect IP addresses and may generate a unique identifier to analyze how frequently you visit our Websites, and also gather other metrics such as page views.
Functionality cookies allow websites to remember the user’s site preferences and choices they make on the site including username, region, and language. This allows the website to provide personalized features like local news stories and weather if you share your location. These cookies enable our Websites to provide enhanced functionality and features. Although these cookies are not strictly necessary, if you disable them, certain functionality may not be available to you.
Targeting and advertising cookies are specifically designed to gather information from you on your device to display advertisements to you based on relevant topics that interest you. Advertisers will place these cookies on a website with the website operator’s permission. Targeting cookies are used by our advertising and marketing partners and work primarily through uniquely identifying your device (e.g., advertising ID, IP address, geolocation), and are used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other websites you may visit. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Other Tracking Technologies
Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a website. AdBeacon and our third-party partners may use other similar technologies such as “tracking pixels” and “web beacons”. This allows our third-party partners to monitor traffic patterns between websites, communicate with cookies, understand if you have come from an advertisement displayed on a third-party Website, monitor the success of marketing campaigns, and improve site performance. These technologies typically rely on cookies to function, so disabling cookies in your browser will impair their functionality. These other tracking technologies include:
Web Beacons (“Tracking Pixels”) Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as “Internet tags” or “clear gifs,” embedded in web pages. Web beacons may be used, for example, to count the number of visitors to the Website, to monitor how users navigate the Website, to count content views, customer journey, attribution models, and more.
An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Website. It is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from our web server, or from a third party with which we work, and is active only while you are connected to the Website, and deleted or deactivated thereafter.
Our Use of Personal Information on Behalf of our Clients
AdBeacon’s use of personal information we collect from, or on behalf of, our clients to provide services to our clients at their direction. We use personal information only as directed or authorized by our client. Typically, we are directed or authorized to use personal information collected on behalf of the client to:
How can to control cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website and Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of users and to enhance the experience of our Service. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes.
