For its service, Clickwire uses only one type of cookies, so-called 'Affiliate cookies'.
"Affiliate cookies are not intended to collect information about the user, but about the affiliate, which affiliate is entitled to the reward because his advertisement resulted in a sale, if the information obtained with the affiliate cookies is only used for these purposes, this will have no or hardly any consequences for the privacy of the internet user and this type of cookies is covered by the exception. " - Minister Kamp Economic Affairs in the Netherlands, May 2013
With 'the exception' the minister referred to the exception in the Telecommunications Act. Affiliate cookies have been exempted from this Act since the actual amendment of the law in February 2015, which means that the Advertiser, Publisher or Affiliate Network does not have to ask for permission before they place an Affiliate cookie. Due to the limited privacy aspect and the fact that Clickwire needs this data for its services, Clickwire invokes Legitimate Interest within the GDPR as the lawful bases for processing. As a result, Clickwire does not require explicit permission from the Consumer to perform the matching. This also applies to the processing of this data when a visitor of the Publisher website clicks through to the Advertiser through one of our domains. To pass on the matching data, we act as Data Controller together with the advertiser. For this we have drawn up a standard processor agreement. This can be read here. The Advertiser or Publisher must inform his or her visitors about the use of Affiliate cookies and the use of Matching data. Advertisers can do this by including the following standard text in their privacy statement. Publishers can use this text. Where possible, Clickwire informs visitors, as being the Affiliate Network, by referring to this document in as many places as possible.
