Sharing your data with Twitter’s business partners

When Twitter receives information about you, we use that information to improve our services, to personalize your Twitter experience, and for other purposes as described in our Privacy Policy. In some cases this involves sharing non-public personal information with our partners.

For the partnerships described below, we provide people with additional control over whether their non-public personal data may be shared. You can exercise this control using the “Share your data with Twitter's business partners” setting in your Personalization and Data settings. Changes to this setting may take some time to take effect. The setting only applies to the particular types of partnerships described below: it does not affect how Twitter otherwise shares data, such as with our service providers, or through partnerships other than those described below.

Mobile Application Advertising Campaign Information for Advertisers:

Twitter shares certain non-public personal information with advertisers who run mobile application advertising campaigns through Twitter. This information can include which ads a particular browser or device saw, watched, or otherwise interacted with; but does not include your name, email, phone number, or Twitter username. For example, Twitter might share that a mobile device identifier viewed or clicked on an ad for a particular mobile application. 

Twitter may share this information directly with advertisers, but advertisers more frequently access this data through Twitter’s service providers. These service providers act on behalf of Twitter to offer measurement and analytics solutions to advertisers who run mobile application advertising campaigns through Twitter. You can disable your “Share your data with Twitter’s business partners” setting to stop Twitter and its service providers from sharing with advertisers the non-public personal information described above.
