Your Anonymity to Geist

When you visit a site related to a Geist client, we create a record of the fact that a particular, unidentified agent has performed some action, and ties this record to a completely anonymous ‘continuity token’, from which we can only tell whether you as an actor are the same or different from any other actor, and nothing else. For example, we will know that somebody bought the same thing twice, but nothing about who that ‘somebody’ is.

The Purposes for which Information is Collected

Geist adheres to the Internet Advertising Bureau Transparency Consent Framework, and their categorizations of the purposes we make of token behaviors, information that is only used for operating our marketing business, and never for any other purpose.

These purposes are

  • Storage and Retrieval – of tokenized behaviors
  • Personalization – so that we can record what has interested a specific token
  • Ad Selection – so that we can determine what ads to present when that token appears
  • Measurement – so that we can report to clients on the success of marketing campaigns

Geist does not engage in any of the following kinds of processing, for any purpose:

  • Offline Data Matching – match these events with information from offline sources
