AdMob provides mobile advertising services (“Mobile Services”) to advertisers and publishers.

In the course of providing these Mobile Services, AdMob collects aggregate data from publishers’ sites and uses such data for a number of purposes, including, but not limited to, providing publishers, advertisers and others with aggregate information about traffic and site usage in our advertising network.

In some cases, the mobile phone service providers for mobile devices may send visitors’ phone numbers to AdMob. AdMob uses such information to perform analysis aimed at improving our services and technologies and may also use this data to display advertising customized to visitors’ interests and preferences. AdMob does not use such information for telemarketing, to contact any individuals or to share with any third parties for their own use. In addition, AdMob may collect personal information directly from customers on behalf of advertisers and periodically transfer such information to such advertisers.
