Datamine Marketing and International Privacy Laws
Datamine is in compliance with international privacy laws, specifically referring to the collection of information from individuals:
All website viewers are completely anonymous by default, and their contact information will not be collected or held unless they have voluntarily completed a form. Datamine does not unlawfully collect any personal information from website viewers or other contacts.
Datamine makes sure all our employees are across our privacy policies. All Datamine employment agreements contain confidentiality clauses and standard disciplinary processes for breach of the agreement. Reminders about confidentiality are given informally on a regular basis, and formally if required, and there is a full confidentiality briefing on the Datamine intranet.
Datamine’s security standards
Datamine has comprehensive security protocols in place to ensure that our client and subscriber data is safeguarded at all times. There is a dedicated team of IT security and risk management system administrators who engage in proactive security management as part of their roles. Our systems are secured by an up-to-date virus protection software, and we also undergo periodic security testing.
Ethics of data sharing
Datamine believes that using personal or business data without consent is unethical, which is why we choose not to work or share data with government defence agencies or other similar organisations (unless we are legally required to). We choose not to buy contact lists, and we believe that using the likes of individual search data for advertising purposes is ethically wrong – therefore we ensure that all data entrusted to us is protected from those who would use it as such.
We regularly review and update our security and privacy policies and stay informed of updates to maintain our commitment to best practice.
If you have any questions regarding our data privacy policies and procedures, we’d be happy to hear them – just fill out this form with your question and one of our team will be in touch with you.
At Datamine, we strive to offer our readers and clients analytics empowerment, giving them the ability to make sense of their own business data. We also offer them the knowledge that, while they’re becoming empowered by their analytics, their data will be safe and secure in our hands.
