Why does Twitter have a policy for this product?

Twitter has additional rules for advertisers using Twitter’s conversion tracking and tailored audiences products.

These rules seek to ensure that people are informed when the websites, applications, or services that they use incorporate these products. These rules are also meant to help prevent the collection and use of potentially sensitive user information, and to help prevent ads from being targeted to users based on potentially sensitive information.

What are the policies for these products?

  • Advertisers using these products in their mobile applications must provide their application users with legally sufficient notice that they are working with third parties to collect user data through their application for purposes of conversion tracking and serving ads targeted to users’ interests, and legally sufficient instructions for such users on how they can opt out of interest-based advertising.

  • Advertisers using these products for their websites must provide their website users with legally sufficient notice that they are working with third parties to collect user data through their website for purposes of conversion tracking and serving ads targeted to users’ interests, and legally sufficient instructions to such users that they can opt out of some of those third parties’ interest-based advertising through the Do Not Track functionality in their web browser or through such other methods that Twitter may specify from time to time here

  • Twitter prohibits the creation of tailored audiences or conversion events based on any sensitive information, which includes:

    • Alleged or actual commission of a crime

    • Health

    • Negative financial status or condition

    • Political affiliation or beliefs

    • Racial or ethnic origin

    • Religious or philosophical affiliation or beliefs

    • Sex life

    • Trade union membership

  • Advertisers may not create advertisements which assert or imply knowledge of personally identifiable or sensitive information, even when the ad has been created and targeted without using such information.

  • Advertisers may not use these products in any website, application, or service directed to children under 13, or in any website, application, or service that collects or stores age information from individuals under the age of 13.

  • Advertisers may not use these products in any case where the product, message, or service that the advertiser offers is otherwise prohibited by Twitter’s Ads Policies.

How does this policy vary from country to country?

Advertisers in the U.S. are permitted to create tailored audiences and conversion events based on trade union membership and political affiliation or beliefs provided that the associated data comes solely from U.S. users.

What do advertisers need to know about this policy?

Be honest with both the content of your ads and how you target them. Do not select targeting criteria that could reveal sensitive information about users. Don't subject users to advertising that isn't relevant to your brand or product.
