What we collect, and why
Just as we help companies track and optimise their digital activity, we also take the same analytic approach with our own sites and communications. By measuring activity on our own web and mobile sites, we can better evaluate which types of content and formats are interesting and valuable for our visitors.
Data collected automatically via our audience measurement solution
To measure audience on digital properties, we collect different types of information.
- ID-type information: cookie ID, mobile ID, IP address. After being collected, this data is used for real-time processing in order to generate a visitor ID (hashing is applied on source data) and to calculate geolocation information (which is never more granular than the city- or region-level, depending on the country). The raw data collected is never shown in our interfaces.
- Digital analytics information: data related to Internet users’ navigation:
- the type of browser used
- the number of page views
- the exact navigational path a visitor takes on the site
- the amount of time spent on a page, or the entire site
- shopping cart activity (items placed in cart, abandons, etc.)
- other types of navigational data
In light of the definitions provided in article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation, we consider that all data we collect is “personal data”, and we therefore apply the required considerations and protective measures accordingly.
Data explicitly provided by visitors
We collect personal data when our visitors explicitly provide it by entering information on the “Contact us” page or on other sign-up and contact forms on AT Internet’s sites.
This data is used for sales and marketing purposes.
- If I explicitly provide personal data, for how long is it kept? Personal data that visitors provide via a contact form are only kept for as long as necessary to carry out the function for which the data was collected.
- If I explicitly provide personal data, who can access it? Does AT Internet share this data with other companies? Personal data collected by AT Internet is neither shared nor sold to third parties. The number of AT Internet employees who have access to this data is very limited, and these individuals are fully aware of the extreme confidentiality of this data.
Tracking performance of our communications
To measure and optimise the performance of our marketing communications, we track the following statistics on our email newsletters and invitations:
- open rate
- unsubscribe rate
Users wishing to unsubscribe from AT Internet’s newsletters can do so via the link at the bottom of each newsletter or by contacting email@example.com.
We may also contact visitors whose data is present in our databases to inform them of AT Internet events, webinars and/or all product information that we judge interesting for them (unless a visitor has unsubscribed from our communications).
Third-party services we may use
AT Internet may work with various third parties in order to provide the below services or features to our website visitors. These services, provided by our partners, are meant to make our sites more interactive and enable AT Internet content to be shared on social networks.
We suggest our website visitors consult our partners’ privacy policies. By continuing to browse our sites, our visitors accept the use of these third-party services. Should a visitor contest the collection and processing of his or her data by our partners, he or she may block or disable these services using the opt-out links listed below:
Length of data conservation and storage
For analytics data, we maintain two types of data storage:
- Storage of raw data: Before it is used in our processing, we store all collected raw data for a duration of 6 months. This raw data is not available in our solution interfaces and is not accessible to customers. Raw data is conserved in log files in case analyses must be regenerated.
- Storage of processed data:
- Visitor-level processed data is kept for 13 months.
- Other processed data is kept for 5 years.
In the framework of our digital analytics service, AT Internet stores data via the following service providers:
- Amazon Web Services.
These service providers undertake to store all data within the European Union.
Other data collected for marketing and prospection means are kept for 3 years. This data is collected directly by AT Internet and is stored and processed in the European Union.
