4. Children Under the Age of 13
Our Services are intended for users who are 18 years of age and older and can form legally binding contracts with us to use the Services. If you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to submit any personal information to us.

5. Information We Collect
(a) Information you voluntarily provide to us:
- Account Information: When you register to use the services and create an account (“Account”) through your Gmail account or your Outlook account, we obtain your name and email address to personalize your experience with the Services. If you create an Account through your Gmail account, we will request access to your Gmail when you "activate" an email campaign and not during registration. If you register for an Account through your Outlook account, due to the design of Outlook's API, we will require permissions to your Outlook email account during registration.
(c) Third-Party Emails: We collect all the email addresses we can find on the Internet for your email campaigns. In certain situations, we may not collect or distribute these email addresses. For example, if a website includes a robots.txt file, indicating that a website owner doesn’t wish some pages to be read, we may not source emails from such website.
(d) Information from your use of the Services: We may receive information about how and when you use the Services. This information may include, for example, your webpage views, interactions with the Site or Mobile App, IP address, time, date, browser used, and actions you have taken within the Site or Mobile App. This type of information helps us to improve our Services for both you and for all of our users.
(g) Chrome extension. Our Chrome extension lets you use the Services directly through your Chrome browser. We do not collect any identifying information (like your IP address) about you or collect your browsing history while you use our extension. When visiting other websites, our Chrome extension can read and modify websites you visit such as LinkedIn, GitHub and AngelList. Data read from websites are never stored with the Company unless you explicitly save contact information found from that website (like name, email and company name) from our extension. Write permission is used only to help augment LinkedIn, GitHub and AngelList profiles with the Company’s one-click button.
If you would like to opt out of having any of your Personal Information or your non-personally identifiable information collected by us in connection with the Services, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
We may use and disclose Personal Information only for the following purposes:
(a) We use the Gmail or Outlook email address you provide to set up your Account and to send emails to Subscribers you add to campaigns. We also use it to track the status of your contacts (such as open and reply tracking). We do this by reading the headers of your emails ("from", "to", etc). We can read the body of your emails for the strict purposes of sentiment analysis ("interested" vs. "not interested") only with your explicit permission.
(b) We may send you informational and promotional content that you may choose (or “opt in”) to receive. You can stop receiving our promotional emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in every email we send. In addition, we may use information we collect to advertise our Services to you or suggest additional features of our Services that you might consider using.
(c) To bill and collect money owed to us by you. This includes sending you emails, invoices, receipts, notices of delinquency, and alerting you if we need a different credit card number. We use third parties for secure credit card transaction processing, and we send billing information to those third parties to process your orders and credit card payments.
(e) To communicate with you about your Account and provide customer support.
(g) To protect the rights and safety of our users and third parties, as well as our own.
(h) To meet legal requirements, including complying with court orders, valid discovery requests, valid subpoenas, and other appropriate legal mechanisms, and to respond to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
(i) To provide information to representatives and advisors, including attorneys and accountants, to help us comply with legal, accounting, or security requirements.
(j) To prosecute and defend a court, arbitration, or similar legal proceeding.
7. Data Collected for and by our Users
As you use our Services, you may import into our system Personal Information you have collected from your Subscribers or other individuals. We have no direct relationship with your Subscribers or any person other than you, and for that reason, you are responsible for making sure you have the appropriate permission for us to collect and process information about those individuals. Our employees, advisors may access Personal information about Subscribers to resolve software issues and improve the Services.
If you are a Subscriber and no longer want to be contacted by one of our users, please unsubscribe directly from that user’s newsletter or contact the user directly to update or delete your data. If you contact us, we may remove or update your information within a reasonable time and after providing notice to the user of your request.

We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves.

We will tell you we are working with a service provider whenever reasonably possible, and you may request at any time the names of our service providers. We will never share your name and email address with third parties.
10. Distribution Lists and Email Campaigns
A Distribution List can be created in several ways, including by importing contacts, such as through csv. Your Distribution Lists are stored within our databases behind a secure network. By design, we do not store any of your email messages on our servers. We do not, under any circumstances, sell your Distribution Lists.
Messages sent through email are not secure. Please do not use the Services to send confidential information.
11. Notice of Breach of Security
If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you or people on your Distribution Lists, then we will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.
We use Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) for all of our infrastructure. AWS provides hosting services for most of the web and takes security with the utmost importance. We also use Cloudflare to help protect the Company from cyberattacks. Any data you provide using the Services is encrypted and backed-up in multiple geographical zones to ensure both security and durability.
13. Safeguarding Your Information
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, considering the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information. Your Account requires a username and password to log in. You must keep your username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party.
Billing information is never stored on our servers. All payment and related information is handled By our third -payment processor, Stripe. Stripe is certified as a PCI Service Provider Level 1 company, which is the highest level of certification available in the industry. You can read more about their security practices through "Security at Stripe (https://stripe.com/docs/security/stripe)."

If you would like to update any information on your Account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
