KWANKO has made compliance with regulations and privacy and personal data laws a priority. The KWANKO CGV (Advertiser) and CGU (Publishers) contain the main rules applicable to the data that we collect through our services. We impose these rules on all the partners we work with and we ask them to respect the laws and regulations in force for all the services they are required to provide.
KWANKO places the utmost importance on the security of its partners’ information. We have implemented industry-standard security measures that include the use of encryption and firewalls.
We keep the navigation data collected for up to six months after the date of collection. Our cookies expire six months after their last update.
In case of fraud, IP addresses can be kept for a maximum of 6 months for the purpose of the investigation to detect any potentially fraudulent activity. The selected IP addresses are then processed by teams distinct from those in charge of the KWANKO algorithm
The number of people who have direct access to the data is controlled and is limited to the strictly necessary
We only collect data related to users browsing through cookies or equivalent identifiers that record:
Events related to user activity on our partners ‘websites (such as the number of pages viewed, products viewed, searches on our partners’ websites)
The information related to the computer, tablet or smartphone (type of device, operating system, version) of the users and the events related to the diffusion of advertisements via the KWANKO platform as the number of advertisements that have been displayed.
We also collect user technical credentials from our partners for the purpose of: reconciling browsers and mobile application environments that are used and serving relevant ads based on user activities across different browsers and the environment.
For these purposes, we process and store:
The CRM ID of our advertiser partners and / or email addresses in chopped forms. We use a double-hash function based on state-of-the-art technology to ensure non-reversibility of this information. For example, the hashed shape of email@example.com would be 98307a5bfa1072b8792f743bd8b5151360556b8e5a6120fa9a04ae08c0.
Mobile IDs (such as IDFA for mobile devices running iOS or Google AAID for Android) that are technical identifiers created by mobile phone manufacturers for personalization and analysis in a secure and non-identifying way for the users.
We can collect technical credentials from trusted partners to improve our cross-device cross-connectivity technology and thus offer our partners a harmonized experience when navigating on a KWANKO network site or mobile application.
Our partners may use deterministic or non-deterministic technologies but in all cases we require our partners to share only the reconciliation data with the exclusion of any other data (personal or otherwise) that could be collected by These partners as part of their services and offer users a simple way to oppose the collection and processing of their data.
In line with industry best practices, we use IP addresses:
For fraud detection purposes (not for targeting purposes). The goal is to identify situations that can not be associated with human behavior such as massive volume of clicks within a limited time frame; Or to extract geographic information.
