Privacy Policy

Welcome to The Content Mate (the “Site”). We, being based in the UK, adhere to the highest standards of online privacy and are committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our Site, whether they transact business or not. This document outlines our privacy policies for both casual visitors (“Visitors”) and those who register to transact business on the Site and avail the various services offered by The Content Mate (collectively, “Services”) (“Authorized Customers”).

“Personally Identifiable Information” (PII)

refers to any information that can be used to identify, contact, or locate the individual to whom such information pertains. This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, phone number, email address, financial profiles, and credit card information. PII does not include information collected anonymously or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.

What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?

We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors. Additional information from our Authorized Customers may include names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, the nature and size of the business, and the nature and size of the advertising inventory the Authorized Customer intends to purchase or sell.

What organizations are collecting the information?

In addition to our direct collection, our third-party service vendors (such as credit card companies, clearinghouses, and banks) may collect this information from our Visitors and Authorized Customers while providing services like credit, insurance, and escrow services. While we do not control how these third parties use such information, we do request they disclose their usage of PII provided to them. Some of these third parties act merely as links in the distribution chain and do not store, retain, or use the information provided to them.

How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?

We use PII to customize the Site, make suitable service offerings, and fulfill buying and selling requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Authorized Customers about research, purchase, and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the Site’s subject matter. PII may also be used to respond to specific inquiries or provide requested information.

With whom may the information be shared?

PII of Authorized Customers may be shared with other Authorized Customers evaluating potential transactions. We may share aggregated information about our Visitors and Authorized Customers with affiliated agencies and third-party vendors. We provide an “opt-out” option for those who wish to avoid receiving information or being contacted by us or any agency acting on our behalf.

How is Personally Identifiable Information stored?

PII collected by The Content Mate is securely stored and is inaccessible to third parties or employees of The Content Mate, except for use as indicated above.

What choices are available regarding collection, use, and distribution of the information?

Visitors and Authorized Customers may opt-out of unsolicited information by responding to emails as instructed or by contacting us at our UK office (provide address).

Are Cookies Used on the Site?

Cookies help us understand the preferences of our Visitors and improve their experience on our Site. They are also used for security purposes to protect our Authorized Customers.

How does The Content Mate use login information?

We use login information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information.

What partners or service providers have access to PII from Visitors and/or Authorized Customers on the Site?

The Content Mate has and will continue to have affiliations with vendors. Such vendors may have access to certain PII on a need-to-know basis for evaluating Authorized Customers for service eligibility. Our privacy policy does not cover their collection or use of this information.

Disclosure of PII to comply with the law will be done to adhere to a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency. We will also disclose PII when necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors and Authorized Customers.

How does the Site keep PII secure?

Our employees are well-versed with our security policies and practices. PII is accessible only to a limited number of qualified employees provided with a password to access the information. Regular audits are conducted on our security systems and processes. Sensitive information is protected by encryption protocols.

How can inaccuracies in PII be corrected?

Visitors and Authorized Customers can contact us to update or correct any inaccuracies in their PII by emailing us at (provide email address).

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate PII collected by the Site?

We provide a mechanism for Visitors and Authorized Customers to delete/deactivate their PII from the Site’s database by contacting us. However, due to backups and records of deletions, some residual information may remain. Any individual requesting deactivation of their PII will have their information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use PII relating to that individual moving forward.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?

We will inform our Visitors and Authorized Customers about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site. In case the changes might cause disclosure of PII that a Visitor or Authorized Customer has previously requested not to be disclosed, we will contact such individuals to allow them to prevent such disclosure.
