This privacy policy sets out how AroundDeal uses and protects any information that you give AroundDeal when you use this website.

1. Our Commitments

AroundDeal is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

2. What We Collect

We collect and process Data relating to AroundDeal Contacts, End Users, and Visitors.

2.1 Information in AroundDeal B2B Database (“Contact Data”)

The Data we provide to our Licensees comprises Contact Attributes and Company Information. We provide information limited to what you would find on a business card or in a business email signature block, or limited to what is necessary to contact an individual with a business social network profile or to verify the authenticity of such profile.

Our B2B Database relies on Data retrieved or derived from information from the following sources:

  • Our affiliates: We receive contact details from affiliates, i.e. subsidiaries, parent companies, joint ventures, and other corporate entities under common ownership.
  • Third parties: We rely on business partners to collect Company Information and maintain a verified list of existing companies. We use this information to ensure that the Data we obtain from the above is only added to the B2B Database if it relates to business details as opposed to personal contact details.
  • Publicly available sources: Our proprietary algorithm scans publicly available sources and retrieves public information with advanced tools. For instance, we use this to understand standard corporate email patterns (e.g. firstname.lastname@company.com) and we use it only after the verification process.

All of the data collected from our data sources is added to AroundDeal’s data lake in which AroundDeal’s proprietary algorithm organizes, scans the data, and merges certain data attributes into a unique identifiable “Business Contact Card” which are located in a highly secure database (“B2B Database”).

To avoid irrelevant Contact Data in the B2B Database, we maintain a list of excluded Contacts outside of our B2B Database (“Opt-out list”). This list includes contacts to whom we have not been able to send an information notice.

For more information on how long we retain Data in our Opt-out list, please see the section below on Data retention.

2.2 AroundDeal End Users

Data we collect generally

We collect Data directly from AroundDeal End Users where they interact with us. For example, this is the case when End Users create an account, using our Services, contact us via our website or support channels. The information provided or derived includes:

  • name
  • professional email address
  • professional phone number
  • professional mailing address
  • location
  • user activity
  • referred friend’s professional email address and name (only if you use our referral service)
  • any other information you provide us voluntarily when you communicate with us.

We do not sell any information shared with us by our paying Licensees, End Users, or customers.

Data our Payment Partner collects

For paid-for Licensees, AroundDeal End Users are asked to enter their professional email address and payment information (including a credit card number). For this processing, AroundDeal does not collect or process your payment information directly; payment processing is done by trusted third-party service providers.

2.3 End Users and Visitors

We automatically collect information sent to us by your computer, mobile phone, or other access devices. This information includes:

  • Your device information (for example, the type of browser and operating system your device uses, your language preference, your domain name, and the time you accessed the website)
  • Your mobile network information
  • Your IP address
  • Alerts for troubleshooting errors and bugs

Where you are not logged into your account, this information is unidentified to you and we are not aware of the identity of the user from which this information is collected.

In particular, we will provide your Data to service providers or suppliers as part of our normal business operations. Such service providers include (i) hosting services providers, (ii) data analytics providers, (iii) payment processors, and (iv) security services providers.

6. How Long Do We Keep Your Data?

AroundDeal has implemented a retention policy, setting retention periods taking into account the type of information that is collected and the purpose for which it was collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused information at the earliest reasonable time.

We only keep your Data for the time necessary for the purposes described above.

  • AroundDeal Contacts: We retain your Data for the duration necessary to provide our Services and, thereafter in archives, to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our policies.
  • AroundDeal End Users and other personal data of our Licensees:
  • AroundDeal End Users: We retain your Data for the duration of your active account on AroundDeal. We may keep your Data in an intermediate archive for 3 years following the deletion of your account in order to comply with our legal and contractual obligations or to protect ourselves from any potential disputes (as required by laws applicable to record-keeping and to have proof and evidence concerning our relationship, should any legal issues arise following the termination of your account), all in accordance with our Data Retention Policy
  • AroundDeal Licensees: We retain the relevant Data for the duration of the Licensee’s active paid Services subscription on AroundDeal, except where necessary to comply with our legal obligations. In this case, the relevant Data will be kept in an intermediate archive for 3 years and will only be accessed on a need-to basis (for example, in case of a dispute).

Additionally, we retain Contacts Data in our unstructured database for a duration of 3 years, i.e. the duration necessary to verify and collate the relevant information to create a Business Contact in the B2B Database.

Lastly, we retain Data in our Opt-out list for the duration necessary to provide our Services, which includes ensuring that any Contacts who are public figures or who have exercised their right to opt-out remain excluded from our B2B Database.
