Personalized Ads

We have free versions of our mobile products, such as mobile antivirus, that serve relevant third-party advertisements.

These advertisements are delivered to you by our advertising partners, who process your personal data in order to deliver personalized advertising. Only in case of IronSource, we process your resettable IronSource Advertisement ID and provide it to this advertising partner for advertising. With respect to all other partners, the only information we get in this particular scenario is the minimum necessary to manage our relationship with the advertising partners. This information is relevant to a specific advertising partner and the report does not list the specific ad that was clicked on.

When our product serves third-party ads, we will inform you and ask you for consent during the installation process. Your personal data is used by our advertising partners to serve the third-party ads. We understand you may not want to see third-party ads, and if that is your preference, we have an equivalent product version for a fee that does not show ads.

We want to be transparent about our advertising partners. Therefore, we indicate below for the sake of your information the data categories processed by these third parties, as disclosed in their privacy policies.

Please note that data categories and granularity may differ due to recent updates. Therefore, make sure you always consult the source privacy policy which is decisive and available under the indicated link for the relevant advertising partner.

We use third-party ads to support AVG Cleaner, AVG AntiVirus Free for Android and its white-label versions with the help of the following advertising partners. Please refer to the appropriate link to learn about the particular processing of each partner:
