l. WHAT IS SOURCING SQUARE
Sourcing Square is an advertising technology platform registered in England, Reg # 11773798. Sourcing Square runs a technology buying platform for digital media. Our technology allows our customers to buy ad space on websites, mobile apps, video players, and other devices and allows for the use of proprietary and third-party data in the purchase of that ad space.
When ad space is bought or sold, our technology fulfils the transaction by delivering the ad to Internet users (job seekers) who visit that site, app, or device. Generally, an Internet user’s device (computer, mobile device or otherwise) comes into contact with our technology when a user views a job ad delivered by our technology or clicks or taps on the ad to visit the advertiser’s website or app.
In accordance with applicable laws and regulations, including the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EC Regulation 2016/679), the Company controls, collects, owns and directs the use of the PII and Usage Information and, in this regard, the Company is the data controller.
Privacy practices for our technology advertising supports free content and digital user experiences that we all like. Our goal is therefore to make advertising more effective by helping to display job ads that may be of interest to You. We believe that relevant job ads are more valuable to job seekers than less relevant ads. More relevance also helps the services that depend on advertising because advertisers pay more for effective job ads which in turn leads to higher quality and richer job seeker experiences.
