Guided by strong privacy principles

We offer mobile linking and measurement platforms for marketers, product leaders, and mobile app developers.

So we thought it would be helpful to lay out, in plain English, the Branch Guiding Privacy Principles that drive how we’ve chosen to design our services, with privacy as a top priority.

We limit the data we collect

We practice data minimization, which means that we avoid collecting or storing information that we don’t need to provide our services. We do not collect or store sensitive end-user information, nor do we want to. In fact, our Terms & Conditions prohibit it.

We will only provide you with data about actual end-user activity on your apps or websites

We help our customers understand the relationship between web and app sessions for users they have already seen across their platforms. We do not let customers access data beyond the interactions they have directly with their own users.

We do not rent or sell personal data

Your data is your data no matter what. Neither your competitors nor any other company will ever have access to it. We are not in the business of renting or selling any customer’s end-user data to anyone else.

Privacy advocacy

Branch is committed not just to protecting the privacy of our own customers’ data, but also to advocating for transparency, user control, and the advancement of responsible data practices in the industry at large.

Branch is a proud member of the Future of Privacy Forum’s Advisory Board, alongside Adobe, Bank of America, and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

This non-profit organization brings together industry leaders, academics, and consumer advocates to explore the challenges posed by technology innovation and to develop privacy protections, ethical norms, and workable business practices.

GDPR & CCPA

Our commitment to You

At Branch, our goal is to help our customers meet both the letter and the spirit of privacy laws and regulations, including GDPR and CCPA, in a simple and straightforward way. We believe these are not simply legal requirements; respecting the privacy rights of all customers and their users is the right thing to do.

Over the years, we’ve invested heavily in ensuring that our customers can use our products in compliance with these privacy laws, and we will continue to invest in industry-leading data privacy initiatives.
