Platform support with Intercom
Our Platform uses third-party analytics services to help understand your usage of our services. In particular, we provide a limited amount of your information (such as sign-up date and some personal information like your email address) to Intercom, Inc. (“Intercom”) and utilize Intercom to collect data for analytics purposes when you use our Platform. You can find more information about Intercom in “Website support with Intercom”.
Product related emails
We send out emails notifying you about critical Platform updates, such as maintenance notifications or new billing documents. You can opt-out of those emails at any time.
The emails are sent by means of “Campaign Monitor”, an email marketing platform of the Australian company Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd. The email addresses of our active platform users, as well as other data described in the context of this information, are being stored on the servers of Campaign Monitor. Campaign Monitor uses this information to send out and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. In addition, Campaign Monitor can use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come from. However, Campaign Monitor does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them independently or transfer data to third parties.

How to access & control your personal data
Reviewing, Correcting and Removing Your Personal Information
When you use the Platform, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information upon your request and either provide you the means to correct this information if it is inaccurate or to delete such information at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. You may access, review, correct, update, change or delete your information at any time. To do so sign in to your account, go to your settings, and make the desired changes, or if you don’t have access to the Platform please contact us at email@example.com with your name and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed.
We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), jeopardize the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Our tracking service saves cookies in the browser of users that use websites of our clients and saves an identifier based on other information received from that browser. The cookies and identifiers are solely used to accurately track the success of our clients’ advertising campaigns and to attribute this success to the right publisher. We do not save, process or use any other personal data when doing so.
However, we offer the possibility to opt-out of our tracking here: https://optout.trackmytarget.com/. Doing so will save an opt-out cookie in your browser that will prevent our tracking service from saving the tracking cookies and identifiers.
If you don't want the cookies to be saved in your browser you can set this up in your browser settings. Depending on your browser you can completely deactivate cookie storage, deactivate it only for specific websites or let it notify you when a cookie is set. It should be noted however that cookies play an important role in the usability of the internet; deactivating them might worsen your browsing experience. Alternatively, you can also delete cookies from your browser at any time.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included on such communications. Please note, however, that you may be unable to opt-out of certain service-related communications.
