When you visit or use on-line services provided by Third Party Publishers (including, without limitation, on-line radio services, on-line music platforms,  and on-line podcast providers) that use AdsWizz technology to deliver targeted and non-targeted advertisements for audio, video and/or display content,  such Third Party Publishers may instruct your  device to connect to a web service hosted at an adswizz.com internet domain, which will cause us to drop a cookie onto your device. 

We refer to these cookies as “AdsWizz Service Cookies”.   We use AdsWizz Service Cookies to track your visits to and usage of on-line radio streams, podcast files, music platform playlists, apps and other services provided by Third Party Publishers who use AdsWizz technology.  These AdsWizz Service Cookies allow Third Party Publishers to deliver targeted advertisements to you.  The AdsWizz Service Cookies are used for the following purposes:

  • To record the number of times you have seen the same advertisement in order to meet a Third Party Publisher’s frequency capping requirements;
  • To deliver relevant advertisements to you on the Third Party Publisher services based on the Third Party Publisher websites and services that you use;
  • To  improve how we deliver personalized ads and content on behalf of Third Party Publishers; and
