With this company, they help out with campigns and advertising for various of people. This company allows people to look over advertisments from televison and online. The company makes sure these advertisments are only shown to viewers who realate to thier interst.

They keep a watch on how many times you visit the website and how long you remain on that site. This policy is good because it really takes an interest in what the viewer is interested in and what the viewer wants to continue and research more on.
One bad thing about this company's policy While on websites, Neilson creates a survey for the viewers to take. In order to continue on with viewing a certain campign you must complete the survey. The survery does not go away until the suvrey is complete and Neilson will send you a confirmation email. This policy is bad because it takes away from the site.

From their website it appears that they have worked with Facebook, Linked in and Twitter. This company also makes sure that consumers get information about their role in the advertisements.
The company believes in letting the consumer choose what they share. This company has provided an opt-out button that opts the individual out of certain things that this website will track about the individual. We thought this was good becuase they are giving you an option to choose if you want to be tracked or not.
They knowingly state that they cannot protect your privacy 100%. They mentioned that some information that you provide might be leaked. We thought that this was bad because who wants to be told by someone tracking your every move online can not protect your privacy. Especially things like email addresses.
