Fancee strives to make the service as relevant as possible for you. Therefore Fancee can adapt the content, including advertisements on websites and in apps, to your preferences and make personal recommendations. To do this, Fancee keeps track on a profile based on your use of the service, including the content you request, in order to gain understanding in your interests. Based on these interests, Fancee can then adjust the content, including advertisements on Fancee websites and in apps, for different groups of customers.
For example, based on your surf behavior, you can be included in a certain category, such as “men in the age 30 to 45 years, married and children with an interest in football”. This group will see different advertisements than the category “woman, age 20-30 years, single and interested in travel”.
Fancee can also use these profiles for campaigns for its partners. Fancee owns and remains the owner of these profiles and will never make these profiles available to third parties.
