Purpose of processing
The sole purpose of the monetisation service (which requires prior registration as a user) is to voluntarily provide certain data to be used by companies in the chosen sectors to offer their products and services that may be of interest to you. In exchange, you benefit economically from the information that we market to our client companies in a transparent and controlled manner.
The products and services offered by the client companies that have received your data from us will be offered to you via ads in the abaqoo Browser.
There is a single monetisation mode consisting of providing data under “My Anonymous Data” section and interests under “My Ads Interests” to abaqoo which shares (in an anonymous way) so companies can provide specific products or services via ads in the Browser. User will receive a percentage of the generated revenue.
In keeping with the principle of transparency, you are hereby informed that in order to participate in the monetisation service you must register as a user on our Browser.
abaqoo guarantees that your data will not be used for any other purpose as part of this service.
