Pixel Privacy Terms

Last Updated: May 18, 2018

Quora offers the opportunity to use its pixel technology to both publishers of content on the Quora Platform and users of Quora’s advertising services (the “Ad Services”). Publisher or advertisers may embed Quora’s pixels (“Pixels”) on their website and pages, subject to compliance with Quora’s terms of service for uses of its Pixels and other guidelines (“Pixel Terms”). The Pixels allow us to collect browsing information across sites and helps us to make the ads and content we display on the Quora Platform more relevant to users. The Pixels also allow us to provide information to publishers or advertisers on the Quora Platform about how viewers engage with their content or advertisements and how to reach the most interested audience.

What Do Our Pixels Collect?

Our Pixels collect IP address and location, date and time stamp, user agent, cookie IDs (if applicable), URL, time zone, and other browser-level data or cookie data. In addition, as explained in our Privacy Policy, users of our Ad Services may be able to choose to submit other information to us for targeting purposes – such as customer demographics and customer list information.

We may also use Pixels (and cookies and other features) to help us display ads and personalized content on the Quora Platform, and for a number of other purposes, such as to stop you from seeing the same ad or content repeatedly, to show ads or content that are likely to be more relevant (i.e., based on websites you have visited), to maintain records of the ads or content we display, and to track conversion rates (e.g., when a user of the Quora Platform clicks on an ad and is transferred to the advertisers website).

Quora will use data from Pixels for ad or content optimization only after such data has been aggregated with other data collected from advertisers or other third parties or otherwise collected on Quora.

What About Children and Other Sensitive Information?

Users of our Pixels are prohibited from using our Pixels on child-directed sites and services or to otherwise use Pixels to collect or transmit information about children under 13, financial information, health information, other sensitive data or sensitive information, or any information that is prohibited from being collected.

How Do I Know When Third Party Sites are Sharing Information?

Users of our Pixels are required to provide prominent notice of, and obtain any required consent to, the following:

  • that information will be collected by third-party pixels, cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies on their website, app or online services, as well as a description of such information;
  • that such information may be combined with similar information collected across third-party sites, services and mobile apps; and
  • that such information may be used for targeting ads or providing measurement services..

What Do You Share With Third Parties?

We may share aggregate statistics, metrics and other reports about the performance of their ads or content in the Quora Platform, such as the number of unique user views, demographics about the users who saw their ads or content, conversion rates, and date and time information. We may also allow publishers or advertisers to use Pixels on the Quora Platform in order to collect information about the performance of their content or ads. Our Pixel Terms prohibit publishers and advertisers from combining any information obtained in connection with their use of the Pixels with personally identifiable information for any purpose.
