We may collect and use anonymized and pseudonymized data for data matching and analysis purposes.
When personal data is stripped of identifying information, it becomes anonymous. This occurs when details like names and addresses are removed, or when personal data is aggregated into groups where only information about the groups is retained (e.g., data at a postal code level or shopping behaviour analysis by age groups). Additionally, models created from personal data that identify certain traits or characteristics (e.g., customers’ likelihood to purchase a specific product or category) can also contribute to anonymized data.
Since anonymous data does not allow for the identification of individuals, it is treated differently from personal data and is not governed by this policy. We may use anonymized data for various purposes, including but not limited to improving our services, conducting research, and enhancing overall user experience.
Pseudonymized data refers to personal data that has undergone processing to ensure the removal or separation of identifying details, such as names and addresses. However, it is important to note that the data can still be linked to individuals using a separate “key” or additional information.
The purpose of pseudonymization is to enhance security and privacy by enabling individual-level data processing without relying on identifying information. Despite the removal of explicit identifiers, pseudonymized data remains classified as personal data under the scope of this policy and is subject to the applicable regulations and laws governing the processing of personal data.
By accepting this policy and utilizing our BOUNZ Platform, You acknowledge and understand the distinction between anonymized and pseudonymized data, and You consent to the collection, storage, and processing of pseudonymized data in accordance with the relevant privacy laws and regulations.
If You have any questions or concerns regarding the use of anonymous or pseudonymized data, please contact us at [email protected].
