4INFO and TRUSTe Partner to Protect Mobile Consumer Privacy


Partnership Will Allow 4INFO Customers to Opt Out of Ads Safely and Efficiently

SAN MATEO, Calif. – 4INFO, a diversified mobile advertising, technology, and media company, announced a partnership with TRUSTe, the leading privacy management solutions provider, to protect mobile consumer privacy when delivering mobile ads. Through the partnership, TRUSTe will allow consumers to opt-out of targeted advertising through their TRUSTed Mobile Ads preference manager. This provides both transparency and control to the mobile consumer audience.

“We are leading the charge in mobile privacy by engaging with TRUSTe to provide the highest level of transparency and control,” said Tim Jenkins, CEO 4INFO. “As we continue to refine our advanced mobile targeting capabilities, it was important for us to have a comprehensive privacy solution. TRUSTe provides this and ensures that we are handling users’ private information at the highest standard, so they can engage with brands in a safe and accommodating environment.”

In a 2012 U.S. Online and Mobile Privacy Perceptions Report conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of TRUSTe, among smartphone users, 42 percent identify privacy and security as top concerns, and an overwhelming majority (85 percent), say they won’t download mobile apps that they don’t trust. TRUSTe makes privacy easy for mobile app developers by clearly disclosing what information the app will access. TRUSTed Mobile Ads will be integrated with 4INFO’s AdHaven platform to ensure that all privacy practices align with regulatory requirements.

“TRUSTe applauds 4INFO for taking a proactive approach toward mobile privacy by standardizing on practices that have been proven to turn the tide against rising consumer privacy concerns,” said Chris Babel, CEO for TRUSTe. “TRUSTed Mobile Ads builds trust and consumer engagement on mobile apps, while reinforcing brand integrity, by giving people clear choices regarding the usage of their personal and private information.”

A leader in targeted mobile advertising, 4INFO’s AdHaven platform includes a next-generation mobile ad server, an audience and data management platform, and an analytics platform that combine to deliver 360-degree mobile advertising campaigns across the mobile Web, rich media, mobile video, applications, tablets, and SMS. AdHaven works with the world’s leading data providers, inventory exchanges, and ad-sources to enable effective and efficient mobile advertising campaigns.
