You can visit and browse our website without providing directly identifiable information to us. When you browse our Website; however, we automatically collect certain indirectly identifiable information that is linked to your computer or device, such as your IP address, pixel tags and cookie identifiers, browser type, and timestamp.

When we process your directly identifiable personal information, we do so as a controller.

How We Collect Personal Information

We seek to minimize the amount of directly identifiable personal information we collect from you and we only collect this information from you in the following limited ways:

1. Directly From You. We collect information directly from you when you request more information about our advertising services, Platform, or our company. We may also collect personal information from you if you attend a meeting hosted by Ocean Bridge Media. This may occur when you complete a form on our website, visit our booth at a conference or event, reach out to one of our sales representatives, or contact us in a similar manner.

2. Automated Collection. When you visit our website, we automatically collect certain indirectly identifiable information that is linked to your computer or device using pixel tags and first-party cookies.

  • Pixel tags are small bits of code that provide a method of delivering information on our webpage. They allow us to collect the IP addresses of the users on our page.

  • Cookies are small text files, stored on your browser, that uniquely identify your browser and provide information back to us. Many websites send cookies to browsers that are visiting their sites, and many browsers are initially configured to accept cookies.

Your Choices

We work with third parties who collect information on our Website, Services, and elsewhere through the use of cookies and similar methods in order to serve you with relevant advertisements on other services or to determine that you have seen advertisements on other services. This method of advertising is sometimes called "Interest-Based Advertising." To learn more about Interest-Based Advertising, your choices with respect to it, and to opt out of advertising programs that track your activities across multiple websites to deliver personalized advertising content to you, please visit:

International Transfers of Personal Information

Ocean Bridge Media is a global business headquartered in the United States. As such, it is necessary for us to transfer personal information abroad. We also transfer information to a number of companies who provide business application and marketing services to us. These providers are primarily located in the United States, but may also be located in other jurisdictions. Wherever we transfer personal information, we seek to ensure that it receives a materially similar degree of protection as provided in its country of origin.

Data Originating in the European Economic Area "EEA". Data originating in the EEA is subject to certain protections under the General Data Protection Regulation "GDPR" and individuals in the EEA are afforded additional privacy rights. The European Commission has the power to determine whether a country outside of the European Union "EU" offers an adequate level of data protection. This is referred to as an "adequacy decision". In certain cases, there may not be an adequacy decision by the European Commission and/or United Kingdom authorities with respect to a country to which we transfer your personal information. When transferring personal information from the EEA to a country without an adequacy decision, organizations are required to implement valid transfer mechanisms which may include binding corporate rules, approved codes of conduct, derogations for specific situations, and most commonly, the Standard Contractual Clauses (or any equivalent clauses approved by the authorities in the United Kingdom). You can find a copy of the Standard Contractual Clauses as approved by the European Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 here.

Protection, Storage, and Retention of Personal Information

Protection of Personal Information. We've designed industry standard technical, organizational, and contractual measures to protect against the unauthorized access, disclosure, modification or destruction of the personal information we collect and process. While we are committed to ensuring the security of the information we collect and process, no protection measure can provide a 100% guarantee of security. Consequently, we do not warrant or guarantee the security of any information we collect or process. If you suspect an unauthorized use or security breach of your personal information, please contact us immediately at info@oceanbridgemedia.com

Storage of Personal Information. Ocean Bridge Media may process and store personal information anywhere our servers are located. For more information about our servers and storage of personal information, please contact us through a method listed below.

Retention of Personal Information. Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, we only retain your information for as long as necessary or relevant for the listed purposes in this Privacy Policy, including, for legal, regulatory, backup, archival, accounting, and/or audit purposes.

Your Regional Privacy Rights

If you have provided your information to us and would like to opt out of inclusion in our marketing or email campaigns, you can remove yourself by clicking "unsubscribe" at the bottom of an email we send you, or by contacting us using one of the methods listed below.

Depending on the country you are in, you may have rights in relation to the personal information we collect and process about you. If you make a privacy rights request to us, we will ask you a few questions to verify it is really you making the request. This may include asking for your contact information and your location of residence. We may also collect information related to your browser to verify your identity in connection with a request. We will respond to your request, subject to any applicable exceptions, within 30 days. If we need an extension, we will give you the reasons why.

To exercise your rights, contact us at info@oceanbridgemedia.com or fill out this web form. Below are a few things to know before you make your request.

  • Only you, or a person who can legally represent you, may make these requests. If you use an authorized agent, you must provide the authorized agent written permission to do so, and we may require that you verify your identity directly with us. You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.

  • The request must be in writing and include your contact information and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand and respond to it. In addition, you should provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected the personal information or an authorized representative.

  • We do not charge a fee to process or respond to individual rights requests unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Your privacy rights will vary depending on the country, province, state, or region in which you reside.
