This Privacy Policy applies to all the information collected about you by or through the Company’s Website, HTTPS://THEOUTBOUND.COM (the “Website”) and The Outbound mobile applications (“Mobile Apps”).

You may, at any time, opt-out of email communication by updating your communication settings in the Settings section of the Company’s services.

Use of Credit Card Information. If you give us credit card information, we use it solely to check your financial qualifications and collect payment from you. We use a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use information you provide except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on our behalf.

Security of your Personal Information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We secure the Personal Information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. All Personal Information is protected using appropriate physical, technical and organizational measures.

Social Media Features. Our Website and Mobile Apps include Social Media Features, such as the Facebook Like button and Widgets, such as the Share This button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our sites, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website and Mobile Apps. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these features. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy and other policies of the companies providing them.

External Websites. Our Website and Mobile Apps provide links to other websites. We do not control, and are not responsible for the content or practices of these other websites. Our provision of such links does not constitute our endorsement of these other websites, their content, their owners, or their practices. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these other websites, which are subject to any privacy and other policies they may have.

Third Party Marketing. Where you have provided consent, we share your information, including personal information, as described at the time of consent when you participate in promotional activities conducted by The Outbound Collective, partners or third parties.

Measure Performance. The Company also uses the data for analytics and measurements to understand how the Services are used. For example, the Company analyzes data about your visit to the Website to do things like optimize the products and improve our content, marketing and service offerings.

Aggregation. The Company may compile or derive statistical information from your data to be aggregated with the statistical information compiled or derived from other visitors to the Website or Mobile Apps.

Business Transfers. The Company may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction such as a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

4. Cookies and Similar Technologies

Cookies Cookies are small data text files and can be stored on your computer’s hard drive or your Device (if your Web browser permits). The Outbound Collective, its affiliated websites, and Mobile Apps use cookies for the following general purposes:

  • To help us recognize your browser as a previous visitor and save and remember any preferences that may have been set while your browser was visiting our site. For example, if you register on our site, we may use cookies to remember your registration information, so you do not need to log into our site each time you visit.
  • To help us customize the content, experience, and advertisements provided to you on our websites and Mobile Apps and on other websites across the Internet. For example, when you access a web page, a cookie is automatically set by us, our service providers, or our partners to recognize your browser as you navigate on the Internet and to present you with information and advertising based on your apparent interests.
  • To help measure and research the effectiveness of features and offerings, advertisements, and email communications (by determining which emails you open and act upon).

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers should tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable most types of cookies. Please note that if you refuse to accept cookies, you may not be able to access some of the Services offered on our Website.

Our Website may also use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. The Company or our partners may use Web beacons to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, and to improve site performance. The Company may also allow our service providers to use Web beacons to help us understand which emails have been opened by recipients and to track the visitor traffic and actions on our site. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our content and other offerings.

Single Sign-On. You can log into our site using a Single Sign-on (SSO) service like your Facebook account. This service will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address. Such services may give you the option to post information about your activities on the Website or Mobile Apps to your profile page to share with others within your network.

Advertising. We partner with third party ad networks to either display advertising on our Website or Mobile Apps, or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partners use cookies and Web beacons to collect information about your activities on this and other Websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests.
