At Tru Optik, we value transparency and choice. We want to be as transparent as possible about the circumstances in which data about you might be collected and shared. We also want to give you choices about whether and how data about you might be collected and shared.
We receive certain information about you, your household, and your devices from third-party data partners who provide us this information in order to help us build and deliver marketing segments for our customers. The information we collect and receive on our platform does not directly identify you, but it may be considered "personal data" or "personal information" under applicable privacy or data protection laws (collectively, "Personal Information"). The Personal Information that we collect and receive includes the following categories of information:
Tru Optik’s technology works by using IP addresses and other information we collect to link together devices that we think may be used by the same person or household. This allows our advertising partners to show ads that are more relevant to your interests across your devices and to better understand how consumers interact with their ads. We also use the Personal Information that we receive and collect for a number of business and commercial purposes, including:
We share Personal Information with third parties as follows:
Tru Optik identifies "households" for purposes of delivering targeted advertising based on behavioral/interest-based categories and other information associated with such households. One of the elements (but not the only element) that make up a "household" is the IP address associated with that household. IP addresses are assigned by your Internet service provider to the modem used to access the internet for connected devices in your home and/or business. When you choose to opt out through privacy.tv, we will exclude any "households" in our market segmentation data products that are associated with the IP address(s) from which you have chosen to opt out. For this reason, you should opt out at each location where you wish to not receive targeted OTT advertising that is based on Tru Optik-delivered market segments. In the event your IP address changes, or you access an OTT service from a different location, the opt out will not be effective.
You can also click below to opt out of having Tru Optik data used to select ads for your browser and/or non-browser-enabled software clients based on your online web browsing behavior. When you opt out, an opt-out cookie (from dmp.truoptik.com) will be stored in your web browser, and your IP address will also be stored by Tru Optik. Tru Optik will know the choice you have made when it sees your optout cookie, or, with respect to non-browser-enabled software clients, your IP address, and will apply your choice to all companies’ use of Tru Optik audience segments. If you block or delete the opt-out cookie, Tru Optik will not see your choice.
When you opt out, we will set a cookie that tells us not to select ads using your browsing behavior. If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again. The opt out only applies to the browser in which you set it. If you opt out, data may still be collected about your web browsing activities and you will still see advertising. If you wish to block or delete cookies altogether, you can use web browser settings to do so. We will store your opt out choice with your IP address, but the choice will not be effective if your IP address changes or if you use an OTT service from another location.
We take our commitment to privacy seriously. If you prefer to opt out of receiving marketing messages, you may choose to opt out of digital advertising through the NAI’s Consumer Opt-Out Program or DAA’s Consumer ChoicePage. By clicking on the “Opt-Out” links below, you will be directed to the respective opt out website where your computer will be scanned to determine who maintains cookies on you. At that time, you can either choose to opt out of all targeted advertising or you can choose to opt out of targeted advertising by selecting individual companies who maintain a cookie on your machine.
Please note that if you delete your cookies, you will need to repeat the opt-out process outlined above.
We store and retain data, including Personal Information, in non-aggregated form for up to 18 months from the date of collection. We use aggregated data for reporting and analysis and may store it for up to 2 additional years from the date of collection.
If you are a resident of California, please review these additional privacy disclosures.
In the past 12 months, we have sold and disclosed for commercial and business purposes the following types of Personal Information with third parties:
Some of our disclosures of Personal Information to third parties for business or commercial purposes may constitute "sales" under California law. You may opt out of these sales by following the instructions under "Opting Out of Targeted Marketing Using Tru Optik Market Segments" above. When you exercise your right to opt out, we will no longer share your Personal Information in a way that constitutes a "sale" under California law.
If you are a California resident, you also have the following rights:
You may exercise these rights here. Please note that because most of the information we store can only identify a particular device or browser, and does not identify you individually, you may need to provide us with some additional information to enable us to identify you and the Personal Information about you, if any, and ensure that we accurately fulfill your request. If you have any questions about your rights or our disclosures, you may reach us at 1-888-248-2592 or [email protected]
We will never discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under California law.

If you have reason to believe that we have collected Personal Information from someone who is under 16, please contact us at [email protected]

These customers have their own policies that govern how they collect, use, and share data, which may differ from Tru Optik’s own data collection, usage, and sharing policies. Please consult the privacy policies of the websites you visit and apps you use to become familiar with their privacy practices.
