Security and Privacy
LiveRamp’s data ethics program ensures data is collected with appropriate permissions and protected with the right controls, and that every use of that data is evaluated and ethical. LiveRamp removes personally identifiable information (PII) and replaces it with pseudonymous record keys during our matching process so you can use data with confidence. To protect your customers, we have mechanisms to control data usage and require contractual obligations to maintain the anonymity of users.LiveRamp operates within a certified Safe Haven® environment and automatically applies the data protection requirements–memory translation, data center controls, and hands-off processing–for each supported use case and workflow.LiveRamp policies are supported by an in-house data ethics and compliance team that performs frequent privacy impact assessments and credential their clients, partners, and vendors. They also require every employee to undergo annual privacy, ethical data use, and security training. LiveRamp monitors the data policy landscape in all of the jurisdictions where they operate. Their data ethics program includes a combination of technical and administrative controls to effectively govern data ingestion and activation.
