Advertisements that appear on the Website or App or otherwise in the Services are generally delivered (or "served") directly to you by third party advertisers. These third party advertisers have no access to the information you have provided directly to XE.


If you have provided your consent by accepting “Targeting Cookies” through the Website cookie consent manager or enabled “Targeting” and “Location” on the App, the advertisements that are served may be personalised to you.


Advertising on our Website


Advertisements on our Website may be served by Exponential or Exponential’s advertising partners.


If you have provided your consent by accepting Targeting Cookies Exponential will automatically receive your IP address. Exponential or Exponential’s advertising partners may also download cookies and similar technologies such as pixel tags/beacons and scripts downloaded to your computer (‘cookies’) to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows them to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements were clicked.


Accordingly, if you have provided your consent by accepting Targeting Cookies, Exponential will collect and profile personal data in the form of IP address and cookies from users on the Website in order to provide targeted online advertising and ad measurement.

Advertising on our App


Our App is integrated with MoPub. This allows us to serve advertisements in the App and for advertisers to reach audiences that may be interested in the advertiser’s products or services and MoPub may collect and use personal data for these purposes. MoPub’s privacy policy will apply to MoPub’s collection and use of personal data.


As set out in the MoPub privacy policy, MoPub is designed to avoid collecting information such as your name, address or email address but the personal data collected may enable MoPub to recognize your device over time and across apps. Depending on where you live and your privacy choices on the App, the personal data MoPub collects may include device identifiers and information, app usage information, (if you have enabled Location Services) geo-location, information about interests to make ads served more relevant and information about interactions with ads.


If you have provided your consent by enabling “Targeting” and “Location” for the App, MoPub will collect and use the personal data summarised above and described in the MoPub privacy policy to serve you personalised advertising.

This enables Google, through the use of cookies, to identify the fact that you have visited the Website / App, to track aspects of your usage of the Website / App and combine that with what it knows about your usage of other websites in the Google ad network. We use these services to advertise to visitors of Google ad network websites who have previously visited our Website / App or who Google deems to have shared interests with visitors of our Website / App. Any data we collect through your use of our Website / App will be used by us in accordance with this Privacy Notice and Google’s collection and use of your personal data is covered by the Google privacy policy.
