Details of automated decision-making which your personal data is subject to:
We use automated processing for marketing and media research and for measuring advertising. Our methods of conducting this form of processing include: collecting data from our census digital network implementing software code, referred to as “tagging”; measuring ad placement, viewability, user engagement, brand safety and audience size; obtaining television viewership information from satellite, telecommunications and cable operators covering set top boxes and Video on Demand (VOD) viewership; measuring gross receipts and attendance information from movie theaters. Web audience internet usage and TV viewing information and survey results are used together with information from millions of other research panel members to create research reports on Internet trends, TV viewing habits, e-commerce and mobile device activities. In most cases, this information is pseudonymized and/or anonymized and will not identify you by name or household.
