Free access to many websites on the Internet is made possible by the distribution of advertisements by advertisers. These advertisements can be targeting the needs and expectations of the Internet users concerned or non-targeted, which are less likely to interest them. In all cases, Internet users are exposed to advertisements.
Advertisers, for their part, are also interested in displaying their offers to users they know are interested in them.
When Gamned! (or “We“, “Us“, “Our“) is mandated by an advertiser, Our mission is to accommodate the interests of Internet users and advertisers. To that end, We strive to preserve the confidentiality and security of the personal data that we process in the context of the campaigns entrusted to us by our advertising clients, i.e. any information that makes it possible to identify, directly (surname, first name, profile photo, etc.) or indirectly (client or advertiser identifier, IP address, etc.) a natural person (the “Personal Data“).
