Cookies, Web Beacons, and Analytics.

How We Use Automatic Collection Technologies. We, as well as third parties that provide content, advertising or other functionality on the Services, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies to automatically collect information through the Services. Our uses of these Technologies fall into the following general categories:

  • Operationally Necessary. This includes Technologies that allow you access to our Services, applications, and tools that are required to identify irregular site behavior, prevent fraudulent activity and improve security or that allow you to make use of our functionality;
  • Performance Related. We may use Technologies to assess the performance of our Services, including as part of our analytic practices to help us understand how our visitors use the Services;

  • Advertising or Targeting Related. We may use first party or third-party Technologies to deliver content, including ads relevant to your interests, on our Services or on third party sites.

Cross-Device Tracking. Your browsing activity may be tracked across different websites and different devices or apps. For example, we may attempt to match your browsing activity on your mobile device with your browsing activity on your laptop. To do this our technology partners may share data, such as your browsing patterns, geo-location and device identifiers, and will match the information of the browser and devices that appear to be used by the same person.


In order to provide our geospatial analytics Services, we obtain information from trusted third-party data partners about mobile devices that have visited an area of interest to us or our customers. This information may include:

  • Mobile advertising identifiers (e.g., Apple IDFA and Google Android IDs);
  • Precise geolocation and proximity of a device if location services are enabled (usually expressed in latitude/longitude coordinates along with a date and timestamp);
  • The horizontal accuracy of the latitude/longitude coordinates;
  • Dwell time near areas of interest;
  • Phone carrier and connection type (e.g., cellular, WiFi);
  • The direction in which the device is traveling as a degree coordinate and speed of the device;
  • Information about the device such as device type, model and OS type and version;
  • Device language;
  • IP address of the device;
  • Available or connected WiFi SSID and/or BSSID names;
  • Altitude and vertical accuracy;
  • Whether a device is charging;
  • Bluetooth connected/ available devices;
  • Bluetooth beacon proximity and any related metadata; and
  • Connected car details (including make, model, and year), location, and travel details (including route, distance traveled, direction, and speed)

Our third-party data partners receive this information through relationships they have with mobile applications. The mobile applications provide the information to our data partners via software development kits (“SDKs”) embedded directly into the mobile applications and through APIs which are interfaces through which these mobile applications can provide our data partners with information about their end users.


All Orbital Insight employees are required to maintain the privacy and security of personal information we obtain from data partners.

Research, Analytics, and Commercial Purposes. We use the information we obtain from our data partners for a variety of research, analytics, and commercial purposes, including traffic analysis (for instance, tracking what devices are within a certain area of interest at selected times and which parts of a city are most busy at selected times), analytics (for instance, footfall analysis based on device traffic), and market research (for instance, analyzing consumer shopping trends or business intelligence based on device traffic).

We typically carry out these activities to help our customers with a specific project or initiative. When we work with our customers, we present our analysis in an aggregate and/or de-identified manner and we do not share mobile advertising identifiers with our customers.

In some cases, we may also engage in these activities for our own purposes, including to develop and improve our Services.


For purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, our processing of the personal information we obtain from our data partners supported by the following lawful bases:

· Legitimate Interest: We process personal information to further our and our customers’ legitimate interests but only where such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of data subjects. Examples of these legitimate interests may include research, processing for historical and statistical purposes, and processing to carry out general business activities.

· Compliance with our Legal Obligations: We may process personal information to comply with our legal obligations.


You may be able to opt out of sharing your device’s mobile advertising identifiers (and geolocation data associated with it) with our data partners by adjusting the settings on your mobile device, including by following the instructions for Android and iOS. For devices that do not utilize Android or iOS, you may be able to use your device’s operating system controls in your settings to exercise choice. Please note that mobile operating systems may change these options in the future.

You can also use your device settings to disable the collection of geolocation data at the mobile application level. However, if you do so, certain services that rely on geolocation data to function may be affected.

Please note that adjusting your mobile device’s settings does not impact any device identifiers already in our possession. To exercise any of the rights you may have under applicable data protection laws in the information that we have obtained from our data partners, please see “YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS” below.


We may share information with the following categories of third parties:

Service Providers. We may share any information we collect with our third-party service providers. The categories of service providers to whom we entrust information include: vendors to support the provision of the Services; IT and related services; email services; and customer service providers.

Advertising Partners. When you visit our website, we may allow third party advertising partners to set Technologies and other tracking tools to collect information regarding your activities and your device (e.g., your IP address, cookie identifiers, page(s) visited, location, time of day). These advertising partners may use this information (and similar information collected from other services) for purposes of delivering targeted advertisements to you when you visit third party services within their networks. This practice is commonly referred to as “interest-based advertising” or “personalized advertising.” If you prefer not to share your personal information with third party advertising partners, you may follow the instructions below.

Disclosure in the Event of Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, purchase or sale of assets, or transition of service to another provider, then your information may be sold or transferred as part of such a transaction, as permitted by law and/or contract.


All information processed by us may be transferred, processed, and stored anywhere in the world, including but not limited to, the United States or other countries, which may have data protection laws that are different from the laws where you live.
