Affiliate Marketing

Latest update: 01-09-2019

To perform our services, we use cookies. Please take a moment to read about the cookies that we use and for what purpose.

We offer our advertisers the opportunity to engage in performance-based marketing. Performance-based marketing is a fair form of online marketing where the advertiser only compensates actual and measurable results. To make this happen, a match must be made between the publisher who redirected the visitor and the Transaction that is generated at the Advertiser. To be able to register this transaction, we use an “Affiliate cookie”

Affiliate cookie

In short, the affiliate cookie allows us to see through which advertisement a customer came to an advertiser’s website.

The affiliate cookie serves a specific purpose, namely making a match between publisher and advertiser. Former Minister Kamp of Economic Affairs has said the following about this:

“Affiliate cookies are not meant to collect information about the user, but about the affiliate; which affiliate is entitled to the compensation because his advertisement has led to a sale. If the information obtained with affiliate cookies is only used for these purposes, this will have no or hardly any consequences for the privacy of the internet user and thus this type of cookies falls under the exception.”

Minister Kamp, Economic Affairs, May 2013.

With “the exception” the minister means the exception in the Telecommunications Act. Affiliate cookies are exempt from this law, which means that the advertiser, publisher or affiliate network does not have to request permission before an affiliate cookie is placed. In addition, we collect virtually no personal data and we need the data we collect, through an affiliate cookie, to perform our services. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we, therefore, act on the processing basis “Justifiable Interest”. As a result, we do not need explicit permission from the consumer to perform the matching. This also applies to the processing of this data if a visitor from the publisher’s website clicks through to the advertiser, through one of our domains. For passing on the matching data, we, together with the advertiser, act as Data Responsible. For this, we have a standard processor agreement available, we kindly refer to our privacy page.

Text templates advertisers and publishers

The advertiser or publisher must inform it’s visitors about the use of affiliate cookies and the use of matching data. For this we have prepared two texts that can be used by advertisers and publishers to inform their visitors. In our turn, we will inform visitors as much as possible and point out our privacy statement and cookie policy.

[NAME ADVERTISER] uses the performance-based marketing service of Daisycon. Performance-based marketing is a fair form of advertising because the advertiser only compensates for actual and measurable results. In order to be able to compensate for this measurable result, a match must be made between the publisher/website that has redirected the visitor and the transaction that was generated as a result.

To use this service, we provide anonymous transaction data to Daisycon. This data concerns; product descriptions, sales value, and demographic and geographical features. These cannot be traced to a person and are only used for statistical purposes and shared with Daisycon. In addition to the anonymous transaction data, we provide the following data that fall under the GDPR; 1) pseudonymized transaction IDs. These transaction IDs are not shared with third parties and are only used by us for validation purposes. 2) Through the technical process, your IP address is also passed on to Daisycon. This address is only stored anonymously in the Daisycon system.

For the above service, our partner Daisycon stores data and affiliate cookies and matching processes are used. The use of affiliate cookies, matching data and the storage of data does not endanger the privacy of the visitor to this website. See the Daisycon privacy statement on this.

No consumer profiles (behavioral user profiles) are created via Daisycon’s services. With regard to the data processing within the GDPR, we rely on the basis for processing entitled legitimate interest. We must, however, inform our visitors about the use. A processing agreement has been concluded with Daisycon for the storage and processing of this transaction data.

Matchingtechnology

We store as little data as possible for our matching technology (privacy by design). Data that we do store is anonymous as much as possible and is treated and protected with the utmost care and, of course, not sold to third parties. We do not use the data to create behavioral customer profiles.

The affiliate cookies and the data of advertisers are only used to be able to measure which publisher has referred a visitor to the website of an advertiser. We store the cookies for a maximum of 1 year.

Transaction data at Affiliate Marketing

If a transaction is generated via the link of publishers affiliated with Daisycon, the advertiser passes on transaction data to Daisycon. The transaction data is stored in MyDaisycon. We need this information to:

  • be able to give the publisher the correct remuneration for his or her promotion.
  • have the transactions validated by the advertiser.
  • optimize the promotion by publishers and advertisers.

We make a difference between data that is 100% anonymous and data that can be traced back to a person in theory. For our service Affiliate Marketing, we do not store personal data directly, but some Transaction data, or in combination with other data, may be traceable to a person.

By anonymous transaction data, we mean product descriptions, sales/commission values and demographic and geographical characteristics that cannot be traced to a person.This transaction data is shared with publisher (s) who have contributed to the Transaction. Data that is shared is always anonymous and can never be traced to a person.

In addition to the anonymous transaction data, the advertiser can provide a Transaction ID from his system for internal control purposes. This Transaction ID can be traced by the advertiser to a person and is, therefore, personal data. This Transaction ID is not shared with the publisher, but is replaced by an anonymous Daisycon Transaction ID. The IP address is passed on to us through the technical process. This address is only stored anonymously in the Daisycon system.

For processing the Transaction Data, we act as Data Processor for the advertiser. We have drawn up a standard Processor Agreement for this, please visit the Privacy page for these.

Our General Publisher Conditions, which publishers must accept before they can register with our network, stipulate that Transaction and Click Data may only be stored and / or edited by the publisher in order to be able to promote the advertiser more effectively. In addition, the data must be adequately secured. Also, they must act in accordance with the processing agreement that they have entered into with us.

Use of this data by publishers and advertisers

We strongly recommend that our publishers and advertisers refer to this cookie policy on their websites where they use the services of Daisycon. Information from this cookie policy may be used to inform visitors. However, we do advise publishers and advertisers to make a referral to this page only.

This information may change due to rapid technological developments. We reserve the right to add, remove or modify information to this cookie policy without notice.
