This website app.contology.com (the "Site") is owned and operated by Contology. These Terms of Service apply to the national version of the Site, located at app.contology.com, as well as to any versions of the Site that Contology co-brands with its affiliates and other distribution partners (collectively, "Affiliates"). You may have arrived at a co-branded version of the Site from an Affiliate's website, in which case, that Affiliate will be identified at the top of this page. By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Our Services are diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those Additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
Contology operates the Site as an online advertising and marketing service for several vertical markets including but not limited to the automotive industry. While Contology makes every effort to represent our clients’ marketing and advertising needs to the best of our abilities, Contology does not guarantee or ensure any advertising or marketing reach or return.
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not Contology’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.

There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating an account, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant results and ads, to help you connect with your audience or to make marketing quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to Contology so whether you are new or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices.
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like what the most useful reports are, to more complex stuff like aggregated performance benchmarks.
We collect information in two ways:
We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Contology may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Contology Account.
When you use our services or view content provided by Contology, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:
When you use a location-enabled Contology service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and anonymous identifiers
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Contology and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant dashboard metrics and performance benchmarks.
We may use the name you provide for your Contology Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Contology Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Contology Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Contology Profile information, such as your name and photo.
When you contact Contology, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your navigation bar preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the same configuration you prefer.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other Contology service. We will not combine DoubleClick cookie information with personally identifiable information unless we have your opt-in consent.
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Contology unless one of the following circumstances applies:
With your consent
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Contology when we have your consent to do so.
With domain administrators
If your Contology Account is managed for you by a domain administrator then your domain administrator and resellers who provide user support to your organization will have access to your Contology Account information (including your email and other data). Your domain administrator may be able to:
For external processing
For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Contology if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
We work hard to protect Contology and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
