SocialCode and Our Privacy Policy

Welcome and thank you for visiting the SocialCode website. This Privacy Policy describes SocialCode’s practices for the collection and use of information we receive about you and other consumers in connection with the digital advertising services and tools we provide to our Customers (as defined below).
