Privacy Policy

At Ideastream Ltd., we take privacy very seriously. We only use and advocate the use of permission-based email marketing approaches in order to maintain the trust of our clients, business partners, and email recipients. As such, we always discourage “spamming” and work only with clients and business partners who also recognise the ethical importance and value of privacy.

This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use and distribute information obtained during user visits to our web site or our extranet, or from our email content streaming, tracking and reporting services. Please observe that this Privacy Policy may be amended in the future to reflect any changes and developments in our products or services, our company policies, or applicable law. Please feel free to revisit this Privacy Policy in the future to ensure that you are familiar with our current policies.

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, Ideastream will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise distribute to any third party any personally identifiable information that we collect through our web site, our extranet, or our email content streaming, tracking and reporting services, without the permission of the person or entity to which such information relates.

Ideastream only use the details and information entered into this site for our own internal marketing purposes. This includes responses to information requested and other occasional relevant promotional materials. Any such communications will always include an opt clause that will be strictly observed.

Personally Identifiable Information

From time to time, our clients may use our extranet system to gather information concerning their email campaigns. We do collect personally identifiable information from clients when they browse our extranet system (i.e. company ID, email data retrieved, and extranet usage information), but this information is only used internally to help us provide better services to our clients. We do not disclose any of this information to third parties.

Partnership Policy

In line with our partnership policy we do not use email lists provided by email list delivery companies whom we do not completely trust. Regarding tracking information, although we trust our clients to use this information for their internal purposes only, we do not control or provide any assurances with regard to our clients’ use of this information.

Personal Information

At times, you may choose to supply us with personal information – name, email or postal address ยจ as part of registering at our site or corresponding with us. You may also provide personal information corresponding with our clients or business partners. The latter information involving our clients or business partners, we will forward to them.

We instruct our clients and business partners not to use any personally identifiable information except in connection with the purpose for which it was provided. However, we provide no assurances and accept no responsibility with regard to the use to which this information may be put by any of our clients or business partners.

Purposes

Ideastream sometimes license technology to our clients for their marketing purposes. We instruct these clients that they may use our technology for the purpose of sending emails or other messages only to persons or entities included in permission-based lists, and that all recipients of such emails or other messages must have the ability to “opt-out” of receiving any subsequent emails or other messages. However, we cannot guarantee that our clients will follow these instructions, are not responsible for our clients’ privacy policies, nor are we responsible for our clients’ use of any personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable information that they collect through the use of our technology.

As we continue to develop our business, it is possible that we could merge with, be acquired by, or sell our business or assets to another entity. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the shared or transferred business assets, so you should expect that we might share or transfer some or all of your information under such circumstances. However, in the event that such a transaction occurs, we will, to the greatest extent possible, require the entity with whom we share or transfer your information to follow the practices disclosed in this extant privacy policy

Privacy Policy

We may disclose personally identifiable information if we believe in good faith that:

(a) the law or legal process requires it, or
(b) such disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our clients or business partners, or any other persons or entities.

Opt-In/Opt-Out

We stream rich media email content exclusively to people or entities included in permission-based, or “opt-in” email lists. The “opt-in” approach requires that a person or entity request to be included in an email list. We work exclusively with clients and business partners who comply with this “opt-in” approach.

We always provide recipients of our email content streams with an opportunity to “opt-out” or “unsubscribe” from receiving subsequent email content streams or other messages. We are responsible for reporting “opt-out” or “unsubscribe” requests to our clients and business partners. In turn, our clients and business partners are responsible for complying with all reported “opt-out” and “unsubscribe” requests by removing the appropriate person or entity from their lists.

SPAM

We do not knowingly participate in “spamming” activities of any kind, and we work with clients and business partners whom we believe have similar anti-spamming policies.
