The information that we collect includes Non-PII information related to the user’s device’s destination (on a city level), which marketing messages the user has been exposed to and subsequent changes in the user’s destination on a market – by – market basis. None of the information we collect is personally-identifiable and the destination information that we collect is only the on the city level. (i.e., device 12345 was exposed to Ad 1 and 2 in City A and moved to City B). We may deliver marketing messages, such as banner ads or content, to users who have been exposed to our marketing partner’s media in order to serve subsequent marketing messages based on changes in the city that the user’s device is in. For these marketing messages, the information the we collect includes Non-PII information such as IP addresses, destination derived from cell towers, information from the destinations of Wifi routers and other means of determining (on a city-wide level) the destination of a computing device.
