“Vendor” means a company that participates in the delivery of digital advertising within a Publisher’s website, app, or other digital content, to the extent that the company is not acting as a Publisher or CMP (e.g. Complianz), and that either accesses an end user’s device or processes personal data about end-users visiting the Publisher’s content and adheres to the Policies. A Vendor may be considered under the GDPR to be a Controller, a Processor, or both, depending on specific circumstances. A Vendor will also be considered a Third-Party.
