This includes personally identifiable info (personal data). The use of information collected through our Service shall be limited to the purpose of providing the service for which our customers have engaged us.

Our website offers a publicly accessible blog and a member community forum. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. Our community forum provides the ability to create a personal profile which gives you the option to submit additional personal and demographic information about yourself, such as age and personal interests. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

Also available through our program, you can choose to use our referral features including autoresponders to assist you in growing your database. Any data gathered through the use of the auto code allocated to your business will remain your property at all times.

In order to serve you better and deliver the features you like most, we may conduct research on customer interests, behavior and demographics, based on the personal data we have collected.

Using Our SMS Service

You can import contacts from various CRM systems and other SMS account address books to populate your SMS recipient lists. We collect the username and password for the account you wish to import your contacts from and will only use it for that purpose.

When sending SMSs via our service, we maintain strict privacy for all your data. Hence, if you upload or create an SMS list and store it online, and decide to purge or delete those SMS addresses, we do not keep them on our servers. They are gone forever, so please take note to export your data before you delete it if you may need to use it in the future.

While we may review your list when you upload it, just to make sure it’s opt-in, we do not monitor or review the content beyond that first stage.

Also, when you create or upload an SMS list and store it with our service, we do not sell, rent or give away the data on your list. That data is yours and yours alone, we merely store it for you when you use our
service.
