If consumers consent to data collection and processing, Samba TV’s proprietary viewership data is collected from TVs featuring their software. The collection and processing of the viewership data is 100% based on consent, which Samba TV interprets as opt-in. Samba TV extends the opportunity to opt-out at any time to consenting consumers through their persistent Settings menu, which also provides consumers with other controls, such as the ability to object to the sale of their data through, for example, limit ad tracking and third-party sharing controls, and the ability to reset the identifier associated with the device. This latter feature functions as a "Right to be Forgotten." Samba TV has processes in place to comply with consumer data subject requests.

With respect to their ad targeting services, Samba TV participates in the prevailing frameworks in Europe (the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s (IAB) Transparency and Consent Framework) and the US (the IAB, National Association for Interpretation (NAI), and Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA)).

Finally, with respect to their compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act, as stated, Samba TV implements a "Do Not Sell" feature on their devices and on their website. Additionally, Samba TV implements both the NAI and DAA Opt-Out Tool. Finally, Samba TV has updated their contracts to have the required definitions of “business” and “service provider,” and defines the parties' obligations accordingly.
