1. Introduction to Consumer AI.com Services
Consumer AI and its affiliates provide a variety of data management, distribution, analytic and marketing services, which help our clients and the platforms and partners they work with provide more relevant marketing. Many of these services are described in greater detail on our website, https://www.ConsumerAI.com. Our clients in turn, may reach their customers and others through direct mail, email, display, mobile and multi-media channels.
Consumer AI adheres to the principle that consumers should have choices regarding how marketers use their data and market to them. For information about how to opt out of our database, or out of certain services provided by our business partners, please go to our section titled “Your Choices and Opt-Out Rights.”
2. The Types of Data That We Obtain and Use
Consumer AI receives data from, and handles data on behalf of, a variety of B2C and B2B companies, applications and services, and data compilers and suppliers. We also may obtain data through public sources. Some of the data we receive, use and make available is Personal Information (“PI”) or is linked to PI. PI includes, for instance, name, postal address, telephone number or email address. In addition, some of our services involve using and making available “business to business” data, which is obtained from a number of sources, including public directories, filings and publications, surveys and subscriptions.
We also collect certain information when you visit our
website, https://www.ConsumerAI.com, as described in the section 4 titled “Data Collected on Our Website.”
3. Our Services, and How We Use Personal Information
We use and make available Personal Information for various purposes. For instance,
• We help marketers deliver, target and optimize direct mail and email campaigns, telemarketing, display, mobile and social media marketing;
• We help marketers measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns (online and offline), such as by determining which messages are most likely to be seen or opened by which types of consumers;
• We sometimes create sets of consumer attributes – categories of personal interests that are grouped together based on common interests or preferences (“Data Segments”). These Data Segments may be associated with a person, household, or when used online, a unique online identifier, such as political affiliation, property ownership, socio-economic info about their neighborhood, or being a donor to charity or political candidates. Marketers may use these Data Segments to tailor more relevant ads and offers to groups of users, or to learn more about their own customers and improve their own databases.
• We provide other data services, such as (but not limited to) marketing compliance, verification, look-ups, anti-fraud services, B2B and services, and other analytics and database tools.
Sometimes, we may use PI and Data Segments to help marketers and other data platforms perform “cross-channel” marketing – analyzing, locating and creating potential marketing “audiences” through multiple channels.
The above is not necessarily an exclusive description of the ways we may employ PI and other data. Generally, however, by permitting marketers to reference PI and other data when they send offers to their customers and others, we do so to help increase the likelihood that marketers will send relevant and desired, rather than unwanted offers, content, coupons and ads.

This section provides more information about cookies and similar technologies that we and our business partners may use, and how they work.
Cookies are small text files that websites and other online services use to store information about users on users’ own computers. For instance, cookies can be used to store sign-in credentials so that you don’t have to enter them each time you return to a website, or to store other information to make web viewing more customized or efficient upon future visits. Cookies also may store a unique identifier tied to your computer so that web services and content and advertising networks can recognize you across visits to different websites.

However, this may interfere with the functionality of your web browsing or your ability to fully use many websites.
Pixels or web beacons:
Pixels or web beacons may also communicate information from your Internet browser to a web server. Pixels can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, and can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Web beacon, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Web beacon was viewed.
We sometimes work with third parties to enhance our services (e.g. for purposes of retargeting and tailoring ads or placing browser cookies). These partners may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on your device, which may have cookies with varying expiration period.

7. Your Choices and Opt-Out Rights
Opting Out of Consumer AI’s Database:
You may send an email to team@ConsumerAI.com, to opt out of Consumer AI’s database. If you do so, please include the following information in your email: (a) first and last name, and (b) current address. We also recommend that you provide us with other addresses you have lived at in the past five years, which may help us to opt you out even if we have not yet acquired your current address information. If you decide to opt out in this way, we will stop using data in Consumer AI’s proprietary database to help our customers send or tailor ads and content to you, including through email, direct mail or online display marketing. (It usually takes us between 30 to 60 days to process this opt out through all of our databases.) Doing so will not opt you out of our customers’ or our partners’ databases, only data in Consumer AI’s own database – so other companies that we work with may still send ads, offers and content to you.
Opting Out of Online Targeting:
If you wish to opt out of other third party ad platforms and ad networks, we recommend visiting the opt-out pages offered by the Network Advertising Initiative and the DAA’s AboutAds program.
