Privacy Policy

Effective as of May, 5, 2020.                                                                                                      

 

This Privacy Policy describes how LeadCrunch and our subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively "LeadCrunch," "we", “us” or "our") handle personal information that we collect though our websites and other digital properties that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Service”), through social media, in connection with our marketing and lead generation activities. 

 

LeadCrunch provides services that businesses use to facilitate their own sales and marketing efforts.  In some cases we process personal information on behalf of our business customers while providing services to them. For example, some of our business customers use our service to identify and/or qualify sales leads on their behalf subject to contracts that restrict how we can use this information.  This Privacy Policy does not cover personal information that we process on behalf of a business customer.  If you have concerns about this information, you should direct your concerns to the relevant business.   This Privacy Policy does, however, apply to personal information of professionals that we collect on our own accord and share with our clients and business partners for their own direct marketing purposes. 

 

Our websites, products and services are designed for businesses and their representatives. We do not offer products or services for use by individuals for their personal, family or household purposes. Accordingly, we treat all personal information we collect as pertaining to individuals in their capacities as business representatives and not their individual capacities.

Legal bases for processing. The legal bases of our processing of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy will depend on the type of personal information and the specific context in which we process it. However, the legal bases we typically rely on are set out in the table below. We rely on our legitimate interests as our legal basis only where those interests are not overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or our processing is otherwise required or permitted by law).

Processing purpose (click link for details)

Details regarding each processing purpose listed below are provided in the section above titled “How we use your personal information”.

Legal basis

Service delivery

Processing is necessary to perform the contract governing our provision of the Service or to take steps that you request prior to signing up for the Service. 

Where we cannot process your personal data as required to operate the Service on the grounds of contractual necessity, we process your personal information for this purpose based on our legitimate interest in providing you with the Service you access and request.

Marketing and advertising

Processing is based on your consent where that consent is required by applicable law. 

Where such consent is not required by applicable law, we process your personal information for these purposes based on our legitimate interests in promoting our business.

Research and development

Compliance and protection

These activities constitute our legitimate interests. 

Compliance with legal obligations 

Processing is necessary to comply with our legal obligations.

Actions we take with your consent

Processing is based on your consent. Where we rely on your consent you have the right to withdraw it any time in the manner indicated when you consent or in the Service. 

Use for new purposes. We may use your personal information for reasons not described in this Privacy Policy where permitted by law and the reason is compatible with the purpose for which we collected it. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the applicable legal basis.

Sensitive personal information

We ask that you not provide us with any sensitive personal information (e.g., social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Service, or otherwise to us. If you do not consent to our processing and use of such sensitive personal information, you must not submit such sensitive personal information through our Service.

Retention
We retain personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested; to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements; to establish or defend legal claims; or for fraud prevention). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

European data protection laws give you certain rights regarding your personal information. If you are located within the Europe, you may ask us to take the following actions in relation to your personal information that we hold:
