When do we collect personal data, and why?
Visibay does not require any registration to use its search engine.
Visibay collects connection data and anonymous statistics with respect to product usage, not associated with your search queries, to ensure the security of its information system and to have basic metrics regarding the product usage.
Some data is transmitted to third party advertising partners, for click fraud and abuses detection, the detection of automated systems (bots), and the selection of local ads at the scale of a region or a region.
Who are our subprocessors?
Subprocessor 1: Microsoft Corporation or an affiliate thereof (collectively, “Microsoft”)
Purpose of the processing: Provision of search results
When Visibay requires Microsoft to transmit results that match the entered keywords, Visibay anonymizes the required data and therefore only transmits to Microsoft the entered keywords with the User Agent of your browser (that is the type of browser that you use and its version). An approximate geographic area of the origin of the search query, to the scale of a region or a city, is sent to deliver ads that are more locally relevant (for instance if you search for a painter).
Subprocessor: AirFind Corp (“Airfind”)
Purpose of the processing: Provision of ads
When Visibay requires Airfind to transmit ads that match the entered keywords, Visibay transmits to Airfind the entered keywords with the IP address and the User Agent of your browser (that is the type of browser that you use and its version). An approximate geographic area of the origin of the search query, to the scale of a region or a city, is sent in order to deliver ads that are more locally relevant (for instance if you search for a restaurant).
Retention period: This data may be retained and used by Airfind in accordance with their Privacy Statement.
Categories of persons: Users of Visibay’s search services
Data transfer outside the EU: While receiving search results implies that we send our subprocessors the query terms, the query terms we send the subprocessors are not associated to any personal information, making this process a transient exchange.
For connection data, we do not collect directly identifying information (we do not store your IP address). The information we process for user queries are a hashed IP address and approximate geolocation.
