    What personal data we collect and why we collect it

    Our top priority is customer data security and, as such, we may process only minimal user data, only as much as it is absolutely necessary to maintain the website. Information collected automatically is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding website usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that it would identify any particular user of the system.

    You can visit the website without telling us who you are or revealing any information, by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. If, however, you wish to use some of the website’s features, or you wish to receive Compnay’s Newsletter or provide other details by filling a form, you may provide personal data to us, such as your email, name, last name, city of residence, organization, telephone number. You can choose not to provide us with your personal data, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the website’s features, for example, you won’t be able to receive our Newsletter or contact us directly from the website.

    This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that you submit to the Site through email, text message or another electronic message, or offline. If you disclose your information to others through the Site or other sites on the internet, you do so at your own risk as different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of such information.

    Contact

    If you fill out a Contact web form or contact the Company by any other means, the Company will use the information provided to contact you about your interest that you expressed in your message.

    Newsletter subscription

    If you fill out a Newsletter sign-up form, the Company will use the information provided to send you a newsletter. You can opt-out anytime using a special link provided in a newsletter or contact the Company at privacy@omnisend.com.

    Comments

    When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, visitor’s IP address, and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

    An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

    Media

    If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

    Cookies

    Cookies are text files that web browsers place on a computer’s hard drive to tell site owners whether an individual has interacted with the Site previously. The Company uses cookies to recognize repeat visits by users of the Site and to collect information about users’ interactions with and within the Site. The cookie may transmit information via your browser with a purpose of authenticating or identifying the computer (via e.g., the IP address) or the user. The use of cookies enables the Company to make your experience with the Site easier and more meaningful.

    Standing alone, cookies do not contain personal data, and therefore do not identify you personally; they merely recognize your browser. Also, the Company may use other standard technologies including, but not limited to, pixel tags and web beacons, to track visitors to the Site. These technologies also help the Company to gather information including, but not limited to, the number of visitors to the Site, how visitors arrived at the Site, and the pages those visitors accessed. This information also helps the Company to improve the appearance and content of the Site and enhances the functionality of the Site resources. Unless you choose to identify yourself to the Company by using the Site, you will remain anonymous to the Company. You may delete cookies if you no longer wish to store them on your computer.

    From time to time, the Company may engage third parties to track and analyze non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information from visitors to the Site to help it administer the Site and improve its quality. Such third parties may use cookies to help track visitor behavior, including visitor responsiveness to online advertisements. Such cookies will not be used to associate individual Site visitors with any personal data. All data collected by such third parties on the Company’s behalf is used only to provide the Company with information on Site usage and will not be shared with any other third parties.

    The cookies the Company uses do not transmit personally identifiable information to it or to its service providers. 

    You have the choice to opt-out of receiving cookies from both the Company and third parties which will prevent the Company and third parties from tracking information about the online advertisements that you visit. Please note that you still will have the ability to view the Company’s online advertisements even if you opt-out of receiving cookies or if you choose to disable cookies, you may still use the Site; however, you may have limited access to some areas of the Site.

    For more detailed information about cookies and how they can be managed and deleted, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

    Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about the Site usage statistics and to better understand how visitors engage with the Site.

    Facebook Pixel

    We use Facebook pixel to target Facebook Ads and to measure the results of such advertisements.

    Embedded content from other websites

    Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

    These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

    Links to other websites

    The Site may contain links to other websites. The information practices or the content of such other Websites are governed by the privacy statements of such other Web sites.

    Who we share your data with

    The Company may share data about the Site visitors with the Company’s contracted service providers so that these service providers can provide services on the Company’s behalf. Company may also share data about the Site visitors with the Company’s service providers to ensure the quality of information provided; and the Company may share data about the Site visitors with third parties in aggregated and/or anonymized form. Unless described in this Privacy Policy, the Company does not share, sell, rent, or trade any information with third parties for their marketing or promotional purposes.

    The Company reserves the right to use or disclose any information provided if required by applicable law, if the Company reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce the Company’s rights, if the Company reasonably believes use or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of any person, and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. Whenever your information is disclosed under this paragraph, the Company may also disclose such information on a non-aggregated, non-anonymous basis.

    The Company may share data about the Site visitors, or any other information to a third party in connection with a merger, sale, or acquisition, or a bankruptcy. Also, the Company may disclose your information to affiliated legal entities and businesses with whom the Company is under common corporate control. Again, when your information is disclosed under this paragraph, the Company may also disclose such information on a non-aggregated, non-anonymous basis.

    The Company may also share data about the Site visitors or any other information with its service providers, business partners, suppliers, sub-contractors or agents who perform services for it, as well as its professional advisers (including the Company’s lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers), and analytics and search engine providers that assist the Company in the improvement and optimization of the Site.

    How long we retain your data

    If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

    For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

    The Company will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it originally collected such information. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, the Company considers the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which the Company processes your personal data and whether the Company can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

    What rights you have over your data

    If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you by contacting the Company at privacy@omnisend.com. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

    How we protect your data

    The Company takes precautions, including administrative, technical, and physical measures – to help safeguard data about the Site visitors and other data transmitted to or from the Site against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. No data transmissions over the internet, however, are guaranteed to be completely secure. While the Company strives to protect your data from unauthorized use or disclosure, the Company does not warrant or guarantee the security of the data that you provide to the Company; any transmission is at your own risk.

    Changes to this Privacy Policy

    The Company reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy. The Company will provide notification of the material changes to this Privacy Statement through the Site and via e-mail if permission is given by the Site visitors to be e-mailed at least thirty (30) days prior to the change taking effect. 

    If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact the Company at privacy@omnisend.com.
