How information collection on our sites works:

To show how information is collected on our Websites and across the internet, we’ll use User as an example. The user will help show one person’s journey on the web, and how we help make their online experience more meaningful and relevant.

For example, if a User is a 38-year-old mother of two who lives in a small town in Hyderabad, India. User likes to shop, research, and read content online, particularly about like the gardening hobby. They may use email and social media and enjoys receiving advertising relevant to their interests, so they can learn about new products and ideas. However, User is concerned about the privacy and what data and information are collected about them. The user may often wonder how their computer knows that they like painting when they see painting ads, even when they are not on a website about painting. The privacy principles below will help User and others better understand just that. The principles explain who Strawberry Branding is and how we collect and use information in connection with the Strawberry Branding.com Website and Strawberry Branding Services.

Strawberry Branding.com Website Privacy Practices

Before we get detailed on our privacy practices, we want to point out that we collect data in two different ways. This section talks about our data collection and use practices for this Website; later we will talk about data collection and use via services provided on behalf of our clients.

Utilization and collection of Non-Personal Information (information that doesn’t identify you by name):

When User goes to www. Strawberry Branding.com, we automatically gather non-personal information (also known as non-PII) by placing a cookie, or number, on device. We do this to help understand what parts of our website User enjoys most. This allows us to improve with content that User prefers for future visits. We do not automatically collect or use any of Users personally identifiable information(PII) when visit to www.Strawberry Branding.com.

Utilization and collection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

We only use PII when a user voluntarily provides it. There are a few instances where we may collect PII from User. But, we never collect PII without consent and never use PII in advertising or marketing placements. Examples where User or other users might voluntarily provide PII include:

  • Responding to Users requests: we keep a record of information, including email address and other PII solely for responding to a user’s request. For example:
  • If User clicks on the “contact us” link and submits a question or comment, we will collect the name, email address, and phone number in order to send a reply to the respective person.
  • If User voluntarily asks to be added to our newsletter list, we would collect email address to send our email newsletter.
  • Purchases: If User were to purchase or subscribe to Strawberry Branding services for a fee via Strawberry Branding.com, information collected such as payment information would only be used for processing payment.

How to manage information we have about you and your Strawberry Branding.com subscriptions.

If at any time User decides they would like us to remove them from our marketing e-mails or newsletters unsubscribe from our database, or if they like to change or correct any contact information, they can contact us [email protected] they must include their name, email address, and clear instructions regarding changes they are requesting. they may also unsubscribe from email newsletters by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link found at the bottom of the email.

About Cookie use and similar technologies on Strawberry Branding.com: When User uses our Website, they are providing consent for our use of cookies. Strawberry Branding uses cookies, pixels and similar technologies to collect Non-PII about your visits to our Website.

A cookie is a file placed on a user’s browser that uniquely identifies browser and device. Cookies allow us to customize User website experience to include more content they like, and less content they may find not useful. If User does not agree to our use of cookies, they may prevent their use through their browser settings, elect not to use this Website, or just opt out of cookies on our Website as described below. By opting out User may not be able to use certain Website features or take full advantage of all offerings.

Sometimes a cookie resides on User device for just the single time they are visiting our website; this is called a session cookie.  Sometimes a cookie remains on User device until they deletes it; this is called a persistent cookie. Both types of cookies may be used on our Website.  Cookies help us analyze how users like to use our Website by telling us the pages viewed. They also tell us about the number of visitors to the Website and the webpages that referred them. The Google Analytics cookie we use is an example of a persistent cookie.

Strawberry Branding uses the following cookies:

Performance/Analytics/Tracking: This type of cookie provides aggregated information about where a user may go on the Website.

  • Google Analytics. Strawberry Branding uses Google Analytics to help us analyze how visitors use the Website. Among other things, Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information about the number of visits to the Website, the webpage that referred visitors to the Website, language, device, browser and operating system, the pages visitors view within the Website and other similar details. We do not share this information with third parties. When used this way the Google Analytics cookie is a persistent cookie, and will remain on your device until the cookie expires or you delete it. These cookies may appear as _utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmz, _utmv, _utmt.•

We also use Google Analytics as a session cookie. This cookie may appear as hasj_s. We do not retain this data as it is deleted upon closing of your browser, and therefore we cannot share it with any third parties.

Social media/Sharing: These are cookies that help with the Website’s functionality. These are third-party cookies, and they allow you to share comments, pages, bookmarks, and likes and help to provide access to social networking tools easily.

Social media widgets used on this Website include LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube. These social media widgets collect information about your visit to the Website and your use of the social platform services (for example, buttons or likes) on the Website. We do not share any kind of information with these social platforms; however, you should be aware that social networks collect the data of your site visit and interaction with the social widget directly.

Opt out of cookies placed during visits to Strawberry Branding.com. You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies.

Does Strawberry Branding.com share any information with other vendors or partners? If permitted by law, we may provide access to a user’s PII and/or Non-PII to our vendors and contractors (also known as third parties) who are performing services on our behalf. For example, if User uses a credit card to subscribe to a service, we may securely share her credit card information with our credit card processing service to transact her payment. These vendors are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose. The Strawberry Branding Site uses social media widgets including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn so users can easily share information about their visits with “likes” or “shares.” Always review the privacy policy of social media sites as their data collection practices are separate from Strawberry Branding’s practices. Additionally, we must disclose a user’s information when we believe we’re legally obligated to, or in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding prohibited activities, such as incidents of hacking, misuse, or other prohibited activities.

Use of this site by Children & Children’s data: We’re sensitive to children’s privacy. Our Website is not developed for or directed at children under age 13. We specifically request that children not provide personal information (PII) through our Website. If a user believes her child provided PII and would like it deleted from our database, she can contact us at [email protected] Likewise, if we become aware we’ve collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we’ll delete it on our own.

Indian Online Privacy Protection Act Disclosures: Indian law requires us to tell you that Strawberry Branding does not authorize third parties to collect PII without separate consent from you, the user. Because “tracking” is not yet defined by industry standard, Strawberry Branding does not honor Do Not Track signals or similar mechanisms.

Data retention and storage: Our Website visitors should know we may use cookie information for advertising purposes for up to 13 months, and summary reports with cookie information may be kept longer. Our Website and databases are maintained in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Asia. When a visitor uses the Website or our Services, he/she gives us consent to collect and store information in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Asia and to use information as specified within this privacy notice. However, if the person quits or chooses not to share information we will not be collecting it from the start.

Information Security: Maintaining the privacy of our user’s information is very important to us that means we take care and pay special attention to our security measures to protect our users’ information from all data breaches. We follow certain standards and ensure protection against the unauthorized access to, retention of, and disclosure of information. It includes necessary physical, electronic, and management activities to protect information integrity, access, and use.  Any information stored on our servers is treated as confidential. The use should be enlightened with the fact that no matter what we do to ensure safety, no transmission over the internet is 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee absolute security. Because of this, we ask that our users are aware of with whom they share their information, and what information they share.

Linking to other websites/Third party sites: A link from our Website to another website does not imply that we make the endorsement of affiliates or websites, and we do not have any control over third-party websites to which we might be linked, nor assume responsibility for their content or privacy policies. Once you follow a link to another website, the Strawberry Branding Privacy Notice no longer applies. You should always read the privacy policy of any website you are visiting for your own safety.

Transferal of data upon the change of control: Users should keep in mind that in the event in which another company acquires all or substantially all of the assets of our business through a consolidation, asset purchase,  merger, or any other transaction, including as part of a corporate reorganization of bankruptcy proceeding, we reserve the right to transfer all information (including any PII a user may have provided through the “contact us” page) that is in our possession or under our control to the acquiring party.

Strawberry Branding Services Privacy Practices

This section basically describes the services that we provide for our clients. It concerns data collection and uses on such sites (not Strawberry Branding.com), in conjunction with our services for clients. This information is not related to what happens on Strawberry Branding.com. It’s important you always review the privacy policy of any site you visit as practices vary.

What Does Strawberry Branding do? What does Strawberry Branding mean by their Services?

Strawberry Branding is a leading global media investment and media agency holding company. We mainly focus on media buying and media strategy, and we consistently evaluate and try to come up with innovative ways to deliver relevant advertising and custom online experiences on behalf of our clients. Protecting online user privacy in the course of our business is a priority and one we take very seriously. Strawberry Branding provides client services such as media planning and buying; marketing communications planning; campaign analytics and research; paid search placement and search engine optimization; and branded entertainment and sports sponsorships (“Services”).

Did not understand? Allow us to explain a little more about our Services, how information is collected and used, and how you can opt out or whether you should choose to do so.

Interest-Based Advertising (IBA)

If the user has a hobby of painting? With the IBA technology  (Interest-Based Advertising) also known as behavioral advertising or audience buying behavior, the user will see more painting ads online because the user visits much painting and drawing websites and reads a lot of online content relating to painting. If our client is a Brand that sells painting tools, Strawberry Branding’s Services will help place ads on sites where people who like painting and drawing, like that user, will see them.

When the user visits websites, watches videos online or clicks on any ads, we store a number on their browser using a “cookie” to remember their visits. Skilled with partners (digital publishers such as online painting magazines, for example), this cookie (number) will never collect personal information (PII) about the user, similar to how explained above.  More on this a bit later…

Because many websites that the user visits are related to painting, the anonymous number which identifies the user’s machine or device is put in the “painting enthusiast” interest category. As a result, we may show the user ads that are relevant to painting enthusiasts as the user browses websites. That is how we analyze information collected about them from the user through the cookie (number). This is standard approach; you can learn more about these practices at www.iab.net/privacymatters. Remember the cookie does not inform us who user is specified. All we know is that someone used that particular device to view a painting website. We tag the device with the cookie so we can later serve more painting related ads to that device.

NO PERSONAL INFORMATION is collected for IBA. So what do we collect?

Through the process described above, we do not collect any of their PII and do not know User’s name or any other personal information. We simply recognize the cookie (number) stored in the user’s browser which tells us someone likes painting websites. We then show painting ads related to interests in painting and based on inferred demographics associated with painting. We do no show ads based on sensitive information categories such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation, health, or sensitive financial categories.

Sharing this information and how online advertising works:

The user’s Non-Personal information (non-PII) collected through our Services (or ads placed by us on behalf of clients) may be shared with our clients and vendors. This is essentially how we do business and is how online advertising works. By sharing user’s Non-PII with our clients and vendors, the information helps them deliver more tailored ads to potential customers. The non-personal information allows clients to best understand what ads the user likes most based on how she interacts with the ads and when. This also enables serving of personalized ads to User’s devices so they see ads relevant to their interests, hobbies, and things they may be shopping for at the moment. This information also helps clients formulate more efficient ad campaigns which can help User in the long run. We do not collect the user’s PII via our clients’ ads, except in instances where consent is given by you or you provide the PII voluntarily, and therefore, we do not sell, rent, or share personal information collected on Strawberry Branding.com or other websites with anyone other than as set forth in this Privacy Notice.

When you do not want to share any of your non-personal information then what should you – how to “opt out”

Opting out of Interest-Based Advertising (IBA) is different from opting out of cookies from Strawberry Branding.com as described above under the section about our “Website”.

While User really enjoys receiving ads relevant to her painting interests, if the user, for some reason, chooses to stop sharing certain non-personal information for targeting advertising, they can “opt out” of some cookie, or number, placement. If the user opts out, it does not mean User will stop receiving ads altogether. It only means the user will stop receiving ads tied to their interests. The user has a few options with them as to how they may opt out. One of them is to adjust their browser settings to block third-party cookies from entering. The user can learn how to do this by viewing the Browser “help” menu. In addition, he/she can go to the Digital Advertising Alliance’s, (DAA), Consumer Choice page, http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ where User will be able to opt out of allowing the companies listed on such site to place a cookie, or number, on her device. The user needs to remember that if he/she opts out by clearing her browser cache or by resetting her cookies, they will have to take these steps from time to time, to opt out again.

Strawberry Branding is an active member of the Digital Advertising Alliance and complies fully with the DAA Self-Regulatory Principles.
