The following describes our use of personal data for marketing purposes:
Sources of marketing data
The bulk of the personal data we collect and use for marketing purposes relates to individual employees of our clients and other companies with which we have an existing business relationship. We may also obtain contact information from public sources, including content made public at social media websites, to make an initial contact with a relevant individual at a client or other company.
We send commercial email to individuals at our client or other companies with whom we want to develop or maintain a business relationship in accordance with applicable marketing laws. Our targeted email messages typically include web beacons, cookies, and similar technologies that allow us to know whether you open, read, or delete the message, and links you may click. When you click a link in a marketing email you receive from Assurity, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view and what content you download from our websites, even if you are not registered at or signed into our site.
Targeted emails from Assurity may include additional data privacy information, as required by applicable laws.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) databases
Like all large companies, Assurity uses Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database technology to manage and track our marketing efforts. Our CRM databases include personal data belonging to individuals at our client and other companies with whom we already have a business relationship or want to develop one. The personal data used for these purposes includes relevant business information, such as: contact data, publicly available information (e.g. board membership, published articles, press releases, your public posts on social media sites if relevant for business purpose), your responses to targeted email (including web activity following links from our emails), website activity of registered users of our website, and other business information included by Assurity professionals based on their personal interactions with you. If you wish to be excluded from our CRM databases, please contact us using the contact details below.
You can exercise your right to prevent marketing communications to you by utilising opt-out mechanisms in emails we send to you. You can also exercise the right to discontinue marketing communications to you, or to have your personal data removed from our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) databases at any time by contacting us using the details below. In such cases, we will retain minimum personal data to note that you opted out in order to avoid contacting you again.
