Information We Collect & How We Use It

BOSS Marketing doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at BOSS Marketing is to make our product work as well as possible. This includes basic product functions like allowing our metered paywall to work and key features like personalizing what posts you see based on what we think you’ll like. So, to give you the best possible experience in using BOSS Marketing, we collect information from your interactions with our Services. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using boss-marketing.com, such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long) and your use of product features (like Save to BOSS Marketing, highlights, follows, and applause). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page).

We use this information to:

  • provide, test, improve, promote and personalize the Services

  • fight spam and other forms of abuse

  • generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use the

Information Disclosure

BOSS Marketing won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you to a third-party.

 

We may transfer your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonymization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others or cause illegal conduct. We will object to legal requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.

 

Data Storage

BOSS Marketing uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run BOSS Marketing. By using the Services, you authorize BOSS Marketing to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.

Third-Party Embeds

Some of the content that you see displayed on BOSS Marketing is not hosted by BOSS Marketing. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in a BOSS Marketing page, so that it appears to be part of that page. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, Imgur or Giphy gifs, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, GitHub code snippets, or Scribd documents that appear within a BOSS Marketing post. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a BOSS Marketing post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, that video appears because of a pointer to files hosted on YouTube, and in turn YouTube receives data about your activity, such as your IP address and how much of the video you watch).

 

BOSS Marketing doesn’t control what data third parties collect in cases like this, or what they ultimately do with it. So, third-party embeds on BOSS Marketing are not covered by this Privacy Policy. They are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service (so, when you watch a YouTube video embedded in a BOSS Marketing post, the use of data about your interactions with the video would be covered by YouTube’s privacy policy).

Some embeds may ask you for personal information, such as submitting your email address, through a form linked to from a BOSS Marketing post. We do our best to keep bad actors off of BOSS Marketing. However, if you choose to submit your information to a third party this way, we don’t know what they may do with it. As explained above, their actions are not covered by this Privacy Policy. So, please be careful when you see embedded forms on BOSS Marketing asking for your email address or any other personal information. Make sure you understand who you are submitting your information to and what they say they plan to do with it. We suggest that you do not submit your email address or other personal information to any third-party through an embedded form.


 

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, allow our paywall and meter to function, and personalize content and other services. Without cookies, our metered paywall would not work, so they are necessary to BOSS Marketing’s basic functionality.

 

BOSS Marketing saves data about the URLs you Save to BOSS Marketing (an optional feature that you may choose to use or decline to use), but we do not otherwise track your visits or activities off BOSS Marketing Services. We track your interactions within the BOSS Marketing Services (which encompasses boss-marketing.com).

Some third-party services that we use to provide the Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by BOSS Marketing only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.

Business Transfers

If we’re involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganization or sale of assets such that your information would be transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you in advance so you can opt out of any such money transfer.

Email from BOSS Marketing

When you interact with an email sent from BOSS Marketing (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction.

We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please forward it to us at contact@boss-marketing.com so we can investigate.

Changes to this Policy

BOSS Marketing may periodically update this Policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it. The most current version of the policy will always be here and we will archive former versions of the policy here.
