ADVERTISING, ANALYTICS AND PRIVACY
Advertising is a core part of the Feker family of businesses. Many of our free Services, such as Bawza.com, are supported by the ads we display on those Services. We also provide a variety of online advertising services through the Ethiopian Yellow Pages to other companies that want to place ads on our Services and elsewhere.
The ads we display are more effective when they are shown to users who are likely to be interested in the product or service advertised. For this reason, we use the data we collect and receive to help us choose which ads to show to users. This page provides more information about how advertising works on our Services and the choices you have about that advertising. It also explains how we work with analytics providers, which are companies that help us understand how people use our Services and respond to the ads we serve.
The Ads We Show You
Through the Ethiopian Yellow Pages, we provide ads on our websites and apps, as well as on other companies’ websites and apps. Some of the ads we show you are based upon the content of the page or app you are viewing. These kinds of ads are sometimes called “contextual ads.”
Other ads we show you may be based upon information we have collected or received about your activities and interests across your linked devices. These ads are sometimes called “interest-based” ads. Some interest-based ads are based only upon an isolated online activity, such as if you were to go to an online bookstore and look at a particular novel. The bookseller might want to show you an ad for that novel because you’re probably more interested in buying it than the average online user. This kind of interest-based advertising is sometimes called “retargeting” or “remarketing.”
Other interest-based ads are shown based upon your online activities over time and across different websites and apps used on your various devices. Advertising companies, including Ethiopian Yellow Pages, may collect information about your online activities in this way in order to make predictions about what products or services may be of interest to you. Based upon these predictions, we and other companies may categorize you as belonging to a “segment” of users to which advertisers may be interested in showing ads. For example, if you’ve recently visited car dealers’ websites, you might be grouped in an “Auto Intenders” segment, and a car dealer who places ads with Ethiopian Yellow Pages might want its ads to be shown to the users, like you, who are in this segment.
Feker is committed to complying with self-regulatory requirements for online advertising. These programs include standards restricting the use of sensitive financial account number data and other types of sensitive data as defined by these programs. For example, we do not use or allow others to use sensitive data to determine eligibility for health insurance, life insurance, or employment. We also do not target ads to users based upon sensitive health data, including cancer, mental health-related conditions, and sexually-related areas.
If a user appears interested in non-sensitive, health-related topics (such as, by visiting pages related to a topic), an ad relevant to those interests may be displayed. We may also display non-sensitive, health-related ads to users who we or our advertisers believe may be an appropriate audience for such topics. For example, a user who is of childbearing age or views several pages related to newborns and parenting might later be shown an ad for diapers. Similarly, a user who lives in an area with high prevalence of diabetes or high blood pressure, or who views content related to diabetes or high blood pressure might later be shown related ads.
How We Use Data to Provide More Effective Advertising
As noted above, we use the data we collect or receive about users’ online activities to help us show ads for products or services users are likely to be interested in and make the advertising we provide more effective. Some of the ways we do this are:
1. Showing you ads based upon your online activities, such as the websites and apps you use, the content you view, and the searches you submit;
2. Limiting the number of times you see the same ad; and
3. Measuring the effectiveness of the ads we serve.
We also get data from other sources to help us provide more effective advertising. For example, we may use data that is available from public or commercial sources and combine it with other data we have collected or received about a user or the user’s device.
We also work with companies that provide services to us to determine whether users who saw or clicked on an ad later bought the item displayed in the ad (or took some other action the advertiser wanted them to take). We then provide reports to our advertising customers that allow them to assess how effective a particular ad campaign was.
Please note that we retain certain information, such as IP addresses, for a limited time to aid in the targeting of ads, as well as for fraud detection and prevention. Data used to create segments for ad targeting is retained for no longer than 2 years. Other data (for example, data used to determine long-term or seasonal trends) may be retained for as long as Feker has a legitimate business reason for retaining it.
How We Work with Analytics Providers
Other Companies That Help Us Provide Effective Advertising
We work with a number of other companies that help us provide more effective advertising. These companies do things like help us deliver ads to people who are most likely to be interested in seeing them, keep track of the number of users who saw a particular ad or visited a particular page on one of our websites, and analyze the effectiveness of our ads.
