Prohibited Content and Practices: Data Collection and Usage

>Websites should not collect, or use, data for ambiguous purposes. Similarly, websites should ensure that necessary security provisions are in place if collecting data. 

 

Insufficient Data Security

Websites should contain sufficient data security measures for data collection purposes. Websites which are lacking appropriate data security measures for data collection purposes are not eligible to run. This relates specifically to the collection of personal data via an unsecured page which is not SSL protected or certified, including: 

Ex.png Financial Details, e.g., credit card number

Ex.png  National Identity numbers

Ex.png Healthcare information

Ex.png Drivers License

Ex.png Social Security Numbers

Ex.png Passport Numbers

Ex.png Tax Information

Ex.png Pension Information

  2. Edit the ad to make sure that the ad links to a website which collects personal data via a secured or SSL protected page. 
  • Create a new ad if you need to upload a new image
  • Add the updated ad destination landing page 
  • Any edits made to an edit will resubmit the ad and its edits for policy review
  1. Review the website to make sure personal information is collected via a secure SSL page, or personal information is not collected from the user if it cannot be obtained via a secure SSL page.
