Introduction

Top

Branch Metrics, Inc. ("Branch", "us" or "we") offers a linking and analytics platform enabling developers of applications (our "Clients")--whether those applications are websites or "apps," and across different types of devices--to improve their end users’ ("Users") cross-application experiences, and to derive additional insights into how their Users download and utilize those applications. Branch recognizes and believes that data privacy is important to all Internet users, and therefore we design and operate our services in a privacy-first manner.

This Privacy Policy is divided into three parts, and is intended to meet requirements globally, including those in North America, Europe, APAC, and other jurisdictions:

  • Collection and Use of Information from Our Services: This section explains how information is collected about our Clients’ Users, and used, by Branch in connection with the provision of our products and services (the "Branch Services" or the "Services").
  • Collection and Use of Information from Our Website: This section explains how information is collected and used by us from our website visitors through our website located at branch.io (the "Website"), which includes the dashboard provided to our Clients located at dashboard.branch.io. So, if you are a Client using our Branch dashboard, this section applies to the data we collect from you.
  • Policies Applicable to Both Our Services & Our Website: This section lays out the parts of the Branch Privacy Policy that apply to both the Services and to the Website.

Collection and Use of Information from Our Services

What Information Does Branch Collect from Our Services?

Top

Below, we explain what information we collect on behalf of our Clients through the Services, and how we use it. We process information in a way that is relevant for the purpose for which it was collected as described below.

The Branch Services: Overview

Branch provides a variety of Services intended to help Clients bridge together the identity of their Users across a wide array of platforms, devices and applications. Branch helps Clients by connecting User interactions across siloed applications (email, SMS, web browsers, social platforms, native applications and others), so that Clients understand the multiple steps that a User took to ultimately complete a transaction with the business. This information is used by the Client to better inform marketing and product decisions as well as to provide improved user experiences by using their knowledge of continuity.

Branch has no direct relationship with Users. Branch’s Services are provided when Branch Clients install on their platforms “Branch Mechanisms” (including links, pixels, direct platform integrations, etc.) that capture the User action on behalf of the Client. By associating the information collected from these Mechanisms, Branch creates and stores identifiers unique to the Branch platform, and then uses a variety of techniques to connect these User actions and identifiers together. Some of these common connection techniques include a direct pass-through of identifiers from platform to platform, probabilistic matching using real time and historical parameters observed from each interaction, as well as using historical connections aggregated across the Branch platform. These techniques help Clients match Users with devices they use, including matching the same User across multiple devices.

The key use cases of Branch’s connection service are:

  • To support Clients in implementing deep linking, which uses Branch’s connection information in real time to improve the User experience.
    • For example, if a User clicks on a link in an email or ad to a specific page in a Client’s app, Branch helps the User get to that page after they download the app.
  • To report individualized and aggregated analytics metrics about the performance of the Client’s product and marketing initiatives to the Client directly.
    • For example, Branch can tell a Client how many Users that downloaded an app or that went to a specific page in an app came from clicking on a specific link, and provide corresponding advertising identifiers.
  • To assist the Client by presenting real time, targeted messaging to their Users depending on past behavior observed across the tracked platforms with the purpose of driving more engagement to the Client.
    • For example, Branch can use Branch Mechanisms to provide a tailored message like a coupon code or special offer in your website to users who have interacted with your app and/or website in the past.

Branch requires that each Client commit to share with Branch only information that it has lawfully obtained (including, where necessary, by obtaining consent from Users, or from their parents for children under 13, or in certain jurisdictions, under 16), and that it has the right to share with Branch, and we strongly discourage Clients from sharing sensitive User information with us, as such information is not necessary for the provision of the Services.

In the charts below, we summarize the information collected automatically by the Services.

Information Collected By Branch Links and Pixels

Branch collects the following information from web URLs created by the Client and pixels placed on Client websites. Some of this information is considered personal data under applicable law (in other words, information that itself may identify a unique individual or can be linked back to an individual) (“Personal Data”).

Type of Information Collected Purpose

Cookie Standard web cookies, used for matching
Link Data Metadata controlled by the Client, which may be used to interpret the data for reporting, or for analytics
User Agent Standard web browser user agent metadata; used for matching
Referrer Standard web browser HTTP referrer; may be used for reporting and analytics
Request Standard web HTTP request
Phone Number Used only by Branch to facilitate the “Text me the app” feature; may be shared with the Client if the User consents at the time the User shares the phone number

Information Collected by Branch Mobile App SDKs and Web SDKs

SDKs are Software Development Kits that include code that allows Clients to use the Branch Services. The Branch Mobile App SDKs and Web SDKs collect the following information when Clients use the SDKs in their mobile applications or websites, some of which is considered Personal Data under applicable law:

Type of Information Collected Purpose
iOS Identifier for Advertising (IDFA) Used for identification and matching
iOS Identifier for Vendors (IDFV) Identification and matching
Android Advertising ID (GAID) Used for identification and matching
Android ID Used for identification and matching

How Does Branch Use Information Collected by Our Services?

Top

Data Branch collects through the Services is processed:

  • to better understand how Users come to download certain apps, what types of apps are popular, or to infer that certain browsers and devices are operated by the same User based upon information collected across multiple non-affiliated apps and websites.
  • to provide, maintain, optimize, research and improve the Branch Services.
  • to fulfill Clients’ and prospective Clients’ requests for the Services including processing data at the Client’s direction and transferring User data to them. Branch does not control how Clients use information Branch shares with Clients and Users should read Clients’ Privacy Policies to understand how they use information they receive from Branch.
  • to analyze and aggregate Client data with data of other Clients for Branch’s own internal business purposes and as permitted by applicable law.
  • to create reports based on aggregated information, which is information that cannot be linked back to any individual person or Client, and share these reports with the public.

Our Clients’ Use of Information

Top

Our Clients use the information collected via the Services to improve their Users’ app experiences, customize their apps to Users, and to better understand their app marketing programs and how Users discover their apps. For example, a User may want to share information about a hotel that she found in a travel app with a friend. When that User sends her friend a Branch link to that hotel, after clicking the link the friend is brought directly to the content relating to that hotel within the app, rather than landing on the app’s homepage and having to search for the hotel. The travel app would also gain insights and analytics as to how the content is being shared from its app.

We require that our Clients utilize our Services responsibly and in accordance with our Terms & Conditions. Branch is not responsible for the data practices of any of our Clients through the Services or otherwise. Each Client’s practices are subject to each Client’s individual privacy policy. Users should review the privacy policy of each Client to understand how that Client uses User information collected through the Services.

User Opt-Outs

Top

Branch recognizes a number of consumer choice mechanisms.

Mobile Device Identifier: To exercise the mobile device privacy settings controls, please visit the privacy settings of your Android or iOS device and select “opt-out of interest based ads” (Android) or “limit ad tracking” (Apple iOS). Branch will only be able to collect information as permitted by these settings.

Branch’s Browser Cookie Opt-out: Our cookie-based opt-out can be accessed by clicking here. This will place a Branch opt-out cookie on your browser. Where Branch detects the presence of that opt-out cookie, we will no longer set cookies (beyond the opt-out cookie itself). Due to the nature of the Services, some functionality will be degraded or no longer work as a result. Cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish to have opted-out. For example, if you have opted-out on your computer browser, that opt-out will not be effective on your mobile device.

Client App Opt-out Controls: Branch supports functionality to allow Clients to respect granular controls regarding User data privacy rights. Clients can flag in the Branch SDK that a particular User has requested that their data not be processed by Branch, in which case Branch will no longer process engagement data on behalf of the Client for that User.

Collection and Use of Information from Our Website

Services: Because Branch is a service provider that processes data on behalf of its Clients, any requests relating to European Users’ exercise of their rights of access, rectification, erasure, or restriction under the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) must be provided to Branch by a Client. Clients can notify Branch of these requests here.

You can submit such requests starting on May 25, 2018 at https://gdpr.branch.io/hc/en-us/requests/new, which will be processed in line with applicable law. Although we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Data, there may be circumstances in which we are unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question, or where it is commercially proprietary.
