Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- To personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)
- To improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you)

How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place a request or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
Cookie is usually a small bit of data a site may store in your browser. The browser automatically sends this information back to the site's servers whenever you revisit a site. This is very useful for your onLine experience as the sites can for example remember you are logged in, offer you shorter ways to reach your favourite content, restructure the content to be easily navigable, adapt the new offers and ads to your interests based on the choices you have made previously or remembering and respecting your previous decisions.
In reality, there are more ways to store a small bit of data in your browser, most of them called with hard to remember and understand names (like Flash Local Shared Object, HTML 5 Local Storage etc.). To make it simple, whenever we talk about cookies, we mean all of those different things and so you can forget those strange names right away.
What we store in cookie?
iBILLBOARD uses cookie only to store strictly anonymous randomly generated user ID. So, whenever you revisit a page with our ads we know that we have seen you already before ( but we don't know who you are - we don't know your name, your address or any other personally identifying information). We store this ID in a cookie named 'bbnaut'.
What we use the cookie for?
iBILLBOARD may use this cookie for some or all of the following purposes:
- for simple counting - both web site owners and advertisers are interested in knowing how many DIFFERENT users visited their sites or saw their ads. So, we use the cookie not to count you twice.
- for not bothering you with excessive exposure of the ads - with the cookie, we can remember you have seen the ad already 5 times for example and if you did not click it means for us you are not interested and we will stop displaying that ad (frequency capping)
- for displaying more relevant offers (ads) to you - we can remember sites you have visited recently or ads you have clicked on recently and so we may display similar and more relevant offers to you.
In any case we use the information only for counting (reporting) purposes or improved ad delivery and better online experience.
What we don't use the cookie for?
We never use the cookie and the ID to link it with any information that would allow us to identify a person behind that ID. We also never store any information you might fill in online forms (but we may use the keywords you are looking for in search engines to better understand your interests). We do not track and store anything related to private life including religion, politics or sexuality.
