AD SERVING is the process of delivering an ad to be shown in a web page or a mobile app.
ADVERTISERS Companies (apps, brands) that have a product or service they want to promote.
AD IDENTIFIERS are unique character strings associated with user devices that help monitor and measure user interactions with advertisements and apps. Examples of Ad Identifiers include IDFA (developed by Apple for the iPhone), Google Ad ID (developed by Google for Android), and Windows advertising ID (developed by Microsoft for Windows Phone). Each of these Ad Identifiers can be reset by the user.
AFFILIATE: An Affiliate is any website that displays advertisements on behalf of an Advertiser. The terms Affiliate and Publisher can be used interchangeably.
CLICKS refers to when a User “clicks” on the advertisement and goes to the offer’s page.
PixelCarrier clients may include individual employees.
CONVERSIONS happen when the User completes the “offer” (e.g. making a purchase on an e-commerce site, installing a mobile app, filling out a survey, or doing some other action).

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION DATA can either be precise (identifying the end user’s precise location) or imprecise (identifying the end user’s city or country). In PixelCarrier we collect imprecise geographic data through IP address and/or wifi networks in the end user’s vicinity.
