Information you provide with respect to Advertising Services

When you register to KnowWake’s Advertising Services and wish to purchase from KnowWake advertising space to be used for displaying your Ads on the Application, you will be required to provide Waze with certain details. KnowWake will ask you to provide information about your business including, without limitation:

  • The name of your business, physical address, email address, phone number, organization number, tax ID and more.
  • In addition, in order to pay for the advertising space you purchase, you will be required to provide KnowWake with your payment details, including credit card details (credit card number and expiration date), billing address and further details with respect to your Ads. To protect your privacy, your payment details may not be stored on KnowWake’s systems but rather on a third party online payment gateway that assists KnowWake in the authentication, authorization, charge and maintenance of your payment details for the Advertising Services you purchase from KnowWake. This is with the provision that such gateway is subject to applicable standards and regulations with respect to the holding of personal information and the processing of online payments.

Bear in mind that false, incorrect, or out-dated information may impair KnowWake’s ability to provide you with the Advertising Services and to contact you when necessary. KnowWake will explicitly indicate the fields for mandatory completion. If you do not enter the requisite data in these fields, you may not be able to register with the Advertising Services.

Controlling your information

You can always review and update your Advertiser account information (such as billing details) at your Account Settings page.

If you find that the information on your account is not accurate, complete or updated, then you must make all necessary changes to correct it. Please keep in mind that false, incorrect, or outdated information may prevent you from registering with the Services and impair the ability to provide you with Services.

If your Advertiser account includes any personal information, our treatment of such personal information would be also in accordance to KnowWake end user Privacy Policy.

Information Security

KnowWake considers information security to be a top priority. KnowWake services are built with strong security features that continuously protect your information. KnowWake implements systems, applications and procedures to secure your personal information, to minimize the risk of theft, damage, loss of information, or unauthorized access or use of information. For example, we review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to our systems. In addition, we restrict access to personal information to KnowWake employees, contractors, and agents who need that information in order to process it. Anyone with this access is subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

The insights we gain from maintaining our services help us detect and automatically block security threats from ever reaching you. However, these measures are unable to provide absolute assurance. Therefore, although KnowWake takes great efforts to protect your personal information, KnowWake cannot guarantee and you cannot reasonably expect that KnowWake’s databases will be immune from any wrongdoings, malfunctions, unlawful interceptions or access, or other kinds of abuse and misuse.

KnowWake may from time to time change the terms of this policy. Substantial changes will take effect 30 days after KnowWake has posted an initial notification on the Website’s homepage or any other relevant web pages. Other changes will take effect 7 days after their initial posting on the Website. However, if KnowWake amends this policy to comply with legal requirements, the amendments will become effective immediately upon their initial posting, or as required. You agree to be bound by any of the changes made in the terms of this policy. Continuing to use the Services will indicate your acceptance of the amended terms. If you do not agree with any of the amended terms, you must avoid any further use of the Services.
