Daisycon Privacy and Cookie Policy

The privacy and cookie policy for the services of Daisycon B.V. and its 100% subsidiaries (referred to hereafter as: privacy policy) is set out on this page. This document is a translation from the original in Dutch. Due to the fact that our headquarters is based in the Netherlands, the Dutch privacy & cookie statement is leading. The Dutch privacy legislations are more rigorous then general European legislation.

For the sake of clarity about the cookies Daisycon uses, we will first offer an explanation before going into more detail about exactly what the Daisycon cookies do and what data Daisycon stores. We end this document with an explanation about Daisycon's data security and contact information.

 

Daisycon Cookies

Daisycon uses only one type of cookie for its services. The so-called ‘Affiliate cookies’. Advertisers can use this example (in Dutch) to inform their visitors in their privacy statement. Publishers can use this text (in Dutch). Daisycon will inform visitors by referring to this document on as many places as possible.

 

Contents

For the sake of clarity we distinguish between our users (click on the link to navigate to the right section):


You are a visitor to one of Daisycon's Advertisers or Publishers and do not have an account at Daisycon:

You make contact with Daisycon by clicking on a link – set up via Daisycon's service provision – to a website. Facilitating this click is part of Daisycon's service (for example Affiliate Marketing or Lead Generation). In order to carry out these services Daisycon stores some -anonymous- data for Publishers and Advertisers. Daisycon also uses Affiliate cookies.

How does Daisycon use Affiliate cookies for its advertising services?

Matching technology

Daisycon offers its Advertisers the possibility of performance based advertising. Performance based advertising is a fair form of advertising because the Advertiser is only paying for actual and measurable results. To be able to reward this measurable result a match must be made between the Publisher that redirected the visitor and the transaction generated at the Advertiser's website.

Daisycon does NOT use personal, traceable data and does NOT store personal data for its matching technology. The data Daisycon stores is always anonymized. This is treated with the utmost care and security and not sold to third parties.

The Affiliate cookies and data from Advertisers are only used in order to measure which Publisher has referred a visitor to the website of an Advertiser. The cookies are saved for a maximum of 100 days. For more information see below for the list of the cookies that Daisycon is using for matching purposes.

The data that Daisycon stores for matching purposes are only statistical data. The saved data are NOT personal details and therefore cannot be traced back to individuals. The data Daisycon stores are:

  • Country of the browser.
  • Hashed browser version and settings.
  • An anonymous IP Hash (Secure Hash Algorithm).
  • Device Type (pc/Smartphone/tablet).

The above information is used by Daisycon for statistical calculations, and (in the absence of a cookie) to make a match between the click from the Publishers and the Transaction with the advertiser. Daisycon does NOT store IP-addresses or personally identifiable data.

Transaction data with Affiliate Marketing

If a Transaction is generated through the links from one -of to Daisycon affiliated- Publishers, then the Advertiser will pass on the Transaction data to Daisycon. Daisycon needs this information among other things to give the Publisher the correct payment for the promotion. This data is stored. It is anonymous data that cannot be traced back to an individual. The transaction data can be shared with the publisher(s) who have contributed to the transaction. Shared data is always anonymized and never traceable to an individual.

In chapter 3.9 of our General Terms and Conditions for Publishers -publishers are obligated to accept before they can subscribe to the Daisycon network- is anchored that transaction and click data solely is allowed to be used by publishers to promote advertisers more effectively or to make analysis, and that all data has to be adequately secured. 

Although Daisycon does not saves personal data, advertisers have the opportunity to enter an Processor Agreement with Daisycon. This agreement can be found here

Although Daisycon stores NO personal data for its Affiliate Marketing service, they voluntarily registered the stored data with the Dutch Personal Data Authority. This is for the purposes of maintaining transparency Daisycon's services. The registration can be found here (in Dutch).

Daisycon hosts all its customer data on its own (allocated) servers within the Netherlands and does NOT use of cloud services set up outside the Netherlands.

Data storage lead campaigns

For a limited number of lead campaigns, hosted by Daisycon itself, Daisycon must (temporarily) store data for advertisers. To do this, Daiscycon enter into a processor’s agreement with the advertiser. The privacy statement for the processing of these leads can be found here.
