At Inbox Marketer we understand that privacy is one of the biggest concerns for Internet users. Inbox Marketer respects the privacy of every person who visits our Web site or uses our products. We've created this statement to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy and to show the value we place on the information you provide to us.
WHAT INBOX MARKETER DOES
The company has two lines of business:
||Inbox Marketer designs, develops and produces email publishing software.
||It delivers marketing campaigns, newsletters, product offerings and other forms of communication, via email, for our clients.
Links to Other Web Sites
Inbox Marketer Web sites contain links to other sites. Inbox Marketer is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites, as their policies may differ from our own.
ABOUT INFORMATION YOU VOLUNTEER
In various places on our Web sites, we may request information from you. This might include your name, email address, other contact info, and demographic data such as your occupation. We use this information to:
||send you an electronic newsletter, if you've requested it,
||alert you about new products or product updates,
||provide you with information you have requested about the company or about our products,
||collect survey data to improve our products and services,
||notify winners of contests we run periodically,
||send you or a colleague an email you've requested,
||send you an email confirming a subscription or download,
||classify our users and correspondents into demographic categories so that we can better track the issues, concerns and preferences of those groups and, ultimately, deliver products and services that more accurately meet their needs.
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. When you volunteer information that may be shared with our partners, we will ask you explicitly to grant us such permission by opting in on a Web page.
For visitors to our site who are under 18 years of age we strongly recommend that you obtain the permission of a parent or guardian before providing us with any information.
Send a Friend a Message
Inbox Marketer provides facilities for you to send a friend an email message. We use the email addresses you enter to send the requested email, and we track the number of emails sent, but we do not use the email addresses for any other purpose.
Contests and Surveys
Periodically, we run contests and surveys for our clients. Participation in these is entirely voluntary, and you have a choice whether or not you disclose the requested information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email address) and demographic information (age, zip code, answers to specific questions such as computer use).
We use contact information to notify winners. Other information we collect is aggregated and used by Inbox Marketer and the sponsoring client to improve the client's offerings.
When you download a Inbox Marketer software product, we request your email address, so we can send you a confirmation message.
When you subscribe to a Inbox Marketer newsletter, we provide simple instructions, in each newsletter, on how you can cancel your subscription.
Each message deployed by Inbox Marketer on behalf of a client contains instructions on how you can opt out of future communications, either via email or through a Web page.
Inbox Marketer uses Surefire's Firepay to process our online commerce transactions. We use Netscape's Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to transmit sensitive data, such as your credit card information, to Surefire's secure Transaction Server. Information sent from the Surefire server back to you is also sent via SSL. Inbox Marketer uses 128-bit encryption, the highest level of protection possible for Internet communications.
Secure pages are indicated in your browser. If you use Internet Explorer, you'll see a yellow lock icon in the status bar, to the lower right corner. If you use Netscape Navigator, you'll see a blue lock in a yellow box in the lower left corner. All secure pages begin with https://.
Inbox Marketer does not store your credit card information. Inbox Marketer does store your contact information to expedite technical support if you request it, and to provide you with information about new products and upgrades.
ABOUT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AUTOMATICALLY
Technical and Demographic Information
Inbox Marketer collects technical and demographic information about you that does not personally identify you. Examples of this type of information include the computer operating system you use, your Internet browser, your domain name and IP address, and the Web pages you view. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We use this information to diagnose problems with our Web site and to better tailor its content to your needs.
||When you download our software, we use a cookie to save the information you enter. If you return to the same page later, we can fill in your email address, so you don't have to re-enter it.
||When we send you an email with a link to a Web page, we use a cookie to automatically enter your email address on a Web page form, so you don't have to type it.
Open Rates and Clicks
Inbox Marketer sends email, on behalf of itself or clients, and tracks the open rates of the HTML version of these messages. This allows us and our clients to improve the quality of the messages we send. Inbox Marketer cannot track open rates on plain text messages.
Inbox Marketer may also track clicks on Web site links included in the messages.
Information regarding the activity of email recipients is reported to the client who deployed the message through Inbox Marketer, and may be used in case studies. Information about specific email recipients is only shared with the client who owns the list on which the recipient's email address originally appeared.
Inbox Marketer employs the use of transparent images in our messages for tracking purposes. This only tracks open rates of messages that have been deployed by Inbox Marketer. Upon opening, messages sent from or behalf of Inbox Marketer, will send a notification to our internal reporting services.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and clients. This is not linked to personal information that can identify any individual person.
HOW WE PROTECT THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED
Inbox Marketer takes strong precautions to protect the information you provide from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction.
Information you provide is stored on a secure server on Inbox Marketer premises, in a locked room. Only Inbox Marketer employees who need this information to do their jobs have access to it.
In some cases, Inbox Marketer stores databases for our clients. These lists may contain email addresses, as well as other information the client has collected. A client's list is subject to the same security as data Inbox Marketer collects itself, and is never shared with other partners or clients.
All Inbox Marketer employees are made aware of the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure customer information is protected.
HOW YOU CAN CHANGE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED
If you have provided information to Inbox Marketer and would like
it deleted from our records, or you would like to update information
you've given us, please send an email to email@example.com
If You Feel You Have Received Unsolicited Email
Inbox Marketer does not send or condone unsolicited email, or "spam". We send email only to people who have requested our newsletter, or asked for information about our products.
If you feel you've received unsolicited email from Inbox Marketer, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We promise to deal with your issue promptly.
