Privacy Notice Requirements

Privacy Notice Review Process

After you add the NextRoll Pixel to your site, NextRoll will review your privacy notice to make sure you have all of the required information. You are required to post your privacy notice within 30-days of adding the NextRoll Pixel to your site.

Why You Need a Privacy Notice 

To help you learn more about who might be interested in your brand and fuel the growth of your brand, NextRoll’s Pixel collects data about visitors to your site. 

Generally speaking, you have a legal obligation to disclose information about the types of data collected from visitors to your site(s), the third parties with whom that data is shared, and how visitors can control that data collection. 

What do we mean by “generally” here? Well, because there is not one comprehensive global privacy law, the specific details of what your policy notice must contain will likely vary depending on where visitors to your site reside—for example, whether your site has traffic from visitors in the U.S. or Europe—and the types of NextRoll services you use.

We’re here to help make sure your site discloses the necessary data collection and control information implicated by your use of the NextRoll Pixel in specific jurisdictions. In other words, there may be privacy compliance measures you need to take based on the type of business you operate and where your business operates. It is important to note that this article only identifies the information required to be in your privacy notice resulting from the use of  NextRoll Pixel (see below).
