PRIVACY

Data has become the engine driving digital commerce faster and farther than it would otherwise go. It recommends movies to you on Netflix. It alerts you to deals on Amazon. It stores your credit card information on Google, so you don’t have to pull out your wallet every time you want to make a purchase. In many ways, it makes your life easier. But data needs to be used in the right way. It needs to be used honestly, ethically, and in a manner that’s transparent to users. BRIDGE believes in the ethical use of data, and that a person should have the opportunity to choose who they share their data with and in what context.

How we
approach
data privacy

Our Stance

BRIDGE champions an ethical data collection and use framework that promotes transparency, control, and consent for consumers while enabling respected brands to provide more relevant marketing to these same people.

What We Do

We strictly collect first-party, permission-based data from individuals located within the United States. Our data is sourced from mobile apps and websites, and demographic and psychographic data from offline partners. This creates a more efficient ad environment, for both marketers and consumers.

GDPR and CCPA

BRIDGE is fully compliant with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). But our view on privacy goes beyond the current framework.

Privacy & Data Security

Consumers trust brands that safeguard their data. We've always prioritized privacy and data security, and our SOC 2 certification is a testament to our ongoing dedication.

Members of the Digital Advertising Alliance

The DAA is a non-profit focused on responsible privacy practices in the digital ad industry. They provide consumers with enhanced transparency and control through multifaceted principles that apply to multi-site and cross-app data, gathered in desktop, mobile, and app environments.

We're also in favor of a national data privacy law

At BRIDGE, we support a national privacy law for the U.S., akin to Europe’s GDPR. In the absence of similar federal legislation, more than a dozen states —including California, Virginia, Alabama, Vermont, and Iowa—have started passing their own laws. We believe it would be universally beneficial to define rules that maintain the benefits of data in our economy while providing protections and rights to people.

Tools and Resources

What happens when a mobile app is non-compliant in its data policy?

If you fail to comply with the privacy regulations in each jurisdiction you do business in, you could face crippling fines and loss of user goodwill. Learn more here.

LOOKING AHEAD: PRIVACY POLICIES IN BIG TECH

We’re always thinking about identity and privacy, and how these things fit into the global discussion around tech.

MOBILE AD IDS, EXPLAINED

Mobile Advertising IDs — or MAIDs, for short — are strings of digits assigned to mobile devices. Android assigns them. So does Apple.
