Business and Service Provider Roles and Relationships
Under the CCPA, AdAdapted may be a Business, Service Provider, and/or a Third Party with respect to your personal information, depending on the circumstances. If we are responsible for your personal information as a Business or have otherwise been delegated the responsibility as a Service Provider, we will respond directly to your privacy requests.

If we are processing your information as a Service Provider or have received it as a Third Party, you may choose to exercise your data protection rights directly with the Business, such as our Publisher Partners, e.g. the mobile applications that collected your data. Otherwise, if you wish to make your request to us, we will forward your request to the responsible party.

Do Not Sell My Personal Information
In our capacity as a Business and/or Data Broker under the CCPA, AdAdapted sells (and has sold in the preceding 12 months) personal information (e.g. App Data) through our transfer of information to Advertiser Partners and Advertising Networks. In some cases, we combine information with other information as part of such sale.

Privacy Rights of California Residents
If you are a California resident, subject to certain limitations, you have the following rights concerning your personal information:

  • Right to Know. You have the right to access the specific pieces of personal information collected about you, the sources from which such information was obtained, the categories of information that have been sold or disclosed for a business purpose, and the commercial purpose for which the information was collected or sold, provided to you in a reasonably portable format if you have a password-protected account.
  • Right to Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete any of the personal information we have collected or maintain about you.
  • Right to Opt-out of Sales of Personal Information. You have a right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information and to opt-in again at your election.
