data". This means that none of the data can be linked to any individual Internet
consumer, and therefore it cannot be used for profiling purposes.
Clicks.net retains all ad delivery and reporting data indefinitely, for accounting
and auditing purposes.

information (e.g. age, gender, interests, income-range) that could potentially be

that have a greater degree of relevance to the consumer, even though that consumer
