VisuWall operates the www.visuwall.com website, which provides the SERVICE.
This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use our Service, the VisuWall website.
This Privacy Notice applies to personal information processed by us in our business, as collected on our website and from other related online or offline offerings (collectively, the “Services”). This Privacy Notice is designed to help you understand how we collect, use and share your personal information and to assist you in exercising the privacy rights available to you.
An Important Note. Except for the “ABOUT VISUWALL” section below, this Privacy Notice does not apply to or cover our processing of the de-identified and aggregated information we collect from VisuWall advertising spaces and billboards (“VisuWall Spaces”).
At VisuWall Technologies, Inc. (“VisuWall”), we provide an online marketplace through which advertisers, including brands, media buyers, ad agencies and ad networks (“Advertisers”) can purchase advertising space for marketing campaigns from storefront owners, brokers and landlords (“Landlords”) via VisuWall Spaces in selected locations and cities.
VisuWall Spaces are equipped with cameras and sensors that allow us to collect and record de-identified and aggregated information about the audiences who view the advertisements displayed. However, VisuWall Spaces do not store any “personal information” and the information they record cannot uniquely identify or track individuals.
For example, the cameras and sensors in VisuWall Spaces allow us to record insights such as an individual’s gender, approximate age, mood, dwell time in front of the VisuWall Space, and/or proximity to the camera or sensor. However, the identity of the individual always remains anonymous to VisuWall. If an individual leaves the field of view of the camera or sensor and comes back, the VisuWall Space will think that this is a new person as it has no memory of the unique face it previously saw. VisuWall Spaces only count and describe the audience which walks in front of them, and forget about the individual as soon as he or she has walked out of the field of view of the camera or sensor.
In order to collect some of the information above, we rely on facial characterization software, which is different from “facial recognition” software. Facial characterization software only looks for the presence of a face and records its de-identified traits (e.g., gender, approximate age, and mood). Facial recognition software looks for and identifies a specific person using a unique biometric identifier. VisuWall does not use facial recognition software or collect unique biometric identifiers.
We share the de-identified and aggregated information collected by VisuWall Screens with Landlords and Advertisers. This helps Landlords and Advertisers understand what audiences view the ads and what these audiences are interested in while maintaining individual privacy.
If you have any questions about VisuWall or VisuWall Spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
