Advertising Privacy Policy

Overview

IHS Markit Digital's advertising services provide ad serving and optimization for the financial sector. This may include collecting information on one site for use in tailoring ads shown on other sites, but never includes using financial account numbers or any other Personally-Identifiable Information (PII) for advertising purposes.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Advertisements served from our advertising domain, ad.wsod.com, do not collect PII.

Collection, Use and Sharing of Non-Personal Information

While advertisements served from ad.wsod.com do not collect PII, the system does collect information including the time and date of a visit, the type of browser and operating system used, the visitor's IP address, and the URL visited. Additional information may be provided by publishers or advertisers. This information is not used to identify anyone personally; it is used for aggregated analytic reports, rules-based targeting of ads, and for the purpose of site administration and diagnostics.

Non-PII may be shared with advertising clients or their business partners at their direction.

Collection of Non-Personal Information on Mobile Devices

IHS Markit Digital may receive non-personal information, such as device information and cookie identification from third party sources, including Apple IDFA, Google AdID, and Android ID.

Use of Cookies

Advertisements served from ad.wsod.com do set and use cookies. The ad server uses cookies to avoid additional database lookups, but does not use any other systems for persistently identifying users between views and visits. Cookies and all collected data from ad.wsod.com is advertiser-specific and is not shared between multiple advertisers who may also be serving ads from the domain. An advertiser's data belongs to that advertiser as the system used to serve ads from ad.wsod.com merely collects and temporarily stores that data.

Attribution cookies from IHS Markit Digital's advertising services expire 30 days after the user's last attribution event. Tracking cookies expire after 60 days; after that time a tracking cookie is no longer valid and a new one is created. Opt-out settings in any cookies, along with assigned segments, expire after five years (less intervening leap-year days).

Data Retention

IHS Markit Digital retains user-level non-PII collected by our advertising system for up to 2 years in both aggregated and un-aggregated forms.

Information Relating to Children

Our products and services are designed for those 13 years of age and older. We do not knowingly collect PII from anyone under the age of 13. If we are made aware that we have received PII from someone under 13, we will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from our records.

Opting Out of Interest-Based Advertising (IBA)

IBA – also called Online Behavioral Advertising (OBA) – is the process of targeting specific advertisements to each individual user, based on browsing history. If you opt out of IBA from our service using the tools below, the IBA cookie we use to contain this information will be emptied and changed to a placeholder signaling that you have done so. If you delete that cookie, clear all cookies, or reset or reinstall your browser, you will need to opt out again. Cookies are also browser- and computer-specific, so you will need to opt out from within each browser and computer if you regularly use more than one. After opting out, you may continue to receive advertising from us, though it will no longer be targeted to you individually based on your browsing history. Opting out does not necessarily delete or replace all cookies from our domain; others may remain which are used for aggregate reporting on the performance of the advertisements we serve.

Consumer Opt-Out

The Network Advertising Initiative provides information to help you learn more about online advertising, as well as a service to help you opt out of interest-based advertising from many organizations.
