Privacy Policy

Seventh Data Inc., 2015/03/15 Updated. 

Seventh Data is committed to protecting the privacy of your information. This Privacy Policy describes our Web site and platform privacy practices ("Privacy Policy"). This Privacy Policy applies to data collected by Seventh Data Inc., and its subsidiaries ("Seventh Data") through the Web site, other webpages that we operate in which we post a direct link to this Privacy Policy, and the Seventh Data Platform (each a "Seventh Data Site"). By voluntarily using a Seventh Data Site and/or providing data or other information via a Seventh Data Site, you are indicating your consent to this Privacy Policy and agree to be bound by its terms.

Personal Information We Collect From You

You can visit a Seventh Data Site without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need certain personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") from you.

You may choose to provide us with Personal Information (such as your name, email address, phone number and company name) through a Seventh Data Site when you elect to register with Seventh Data in order to download or access our products or services. When you provide Personal Information in order to register with Seventh Data, such Personal Information will be used in order to provide you with access to the requested products, services content and/or information. We may also use the Personal Information to help us understand who is using our products and services and to help us manage business development activities. Seventh Data may also use Personal Information for marketing purposes. For example, Seventh Data may use information you provide to contact you to further discuss your interest in our products or services and to send you information regarding Seventh Data and its partners, such as information about promotions or events. If you tell us that you do not want us to use this Personal Information as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.

Information Related to Data Collected for our Clients

In the case of individuals using the Seventh Data Platform, Seventh Data collects information under the direction of its business clients (“Clients”) acting on your behalf and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. Seventh Data works with its Clients to help them provide notice to their customers and end users concerning the purposes for which Personal Information is collected.


If you are a customer of one of our Clients using the Seventh Data Platform and would no longer like to have your Personal Information used by Seventh Data or the Client, please contact that Client directly. If you seek access to data, or seek to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, collected by Seventh Data under the direction of our Clients, please direct your query to the Client (the data controller). If the Client requests Seventh Data to remove the data, we will respond to the request within 30 business days.

Service Providers and Onward Transfer

Seventh Data may transfer Personal Information that we collect under the direction of our Clients to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to these third parties are covered by the provisions in this Privacy Policy regarding notice and choice and the service agreements we have with our Clients.


If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you with a way to unsubscribe. Please see the "Choice/Opt-out" section of this Privacy Policy.

Statistical Information

In addition, we sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to a Seventh Data Site to help us provide better customer service and to make a Seventh Data Site as user friendly as possible. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit a Seventh Data Site, and we also measure visitor activity on Seventh Data Sites. However, when we do so, we do so in ways that keep the information anonymous. Seventh Data may use this data to analyze trends and statistics. None of the information described in this paragraph is reviewed at an individual level.


A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on all Seventh Data Sites. We do not add the information we store in cookies to any Personal Information you submit while on a Seventh Data Site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate a Seventh Data Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file. Seventh Data uses persistent cookies to store a unique cryptographic hash value so you do not have to enter your username more than once on a given computer. The information stored does not contain any Personal Information.

Third Party Cookies

A Seventh Data Site may use cookies that permit select third party partners to serve you Seventh Data-related content on their sites or elsewhere on the Internet. This is based on your prior visits to a Seventh Data Site. The use of cookies by third parties is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

Behavioral Targeting and Re-Targeting

We partner with a third party advertising partner, or “ad network”, to either display advertising on the Seventh Data Site(s) or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and Web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on the Seventh Data Site and other Web sites to provide you with targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you do not wish to have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted advertisements, you may opt out by clicking here or here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising altogether. You will continue to receive generic advertisements.

We use Google AdSense to publish advertisements on select Seventh Data Sites. When you view or click on an advertisement, a cookie will be set to help better provide advertisements that may be of interest to you on this and other Seventh Data Sites. You may opt-out of the use of this cookie by visiting Google’s Privacy & Terms page for Advertising:

IP Addresses

When you visit a Seventh Data Site, Seventh Data collects your Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, Seventh Data uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which customers and visitors navigate to a Seventh Data Site. Seventh Data also collects IP addresses from customers when they log into the Seventh Data Platform as part of Seventh Data's security features.

Web Beacons/Usage Analytics

Seventh Data employs, or our third party advertising partners employ, web beacons and usage analytics software that help us better manage content on a Seventh Data Site by informing us what content is effective. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to our customers' Personal Information.

Links to Other Web Sites

A Seventh Data Site may contain links to other Web sites. Seventh Data is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. The links from a Seventh Data Site do not imply that Seventh Data endorses or has reviewed the third party Web sites. We suggest contacting the operators of those Web sites directly for information regarding their privacy policies.

Project Invitations

If you choose to invite others within your organization to a report or project on a Seventh Data Site, we will ask you for the other user's name and email address. We will automatically send him/her a one-time email inviting him/her to visit a Seventh Data Site. Seventh Data stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program. Invited users may contact us at to request that we remove this information from our database.

Blogs/Forums/Chat Rooms/Bulletin Boards

If you use a blog, forum, chat room or bulletin board on a Seventh Data Site ("Forum(s)"), you should be aware that any Personal Information you submit in a Forum can be read, collected, or used by other users of such Forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personal Information you choose to submit in a Forum. To request removal of your Personal Information from our Forums, contact us at In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

Customer Testimonials

Seventh Data may post customer testimonials on a Seventh Data Site, which may contain Personal Information. We obtain our customers’ consent prior to posting their testimonials. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, contact us at

Social Media Widgets

Seventh Data Sites include social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button and widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs that run on a Seventh Data Site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on a Seventh Data Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the applicable Seventh Data Site. Your interactions with each feature are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Information and Other Information

Seventh Data is not in the business of selling your Personal Information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Other Disclosures of Personal Information

Seventh Data participates in certain third party marketing arrangements using web analytics tools similar to Google analytics. These third party marketing arrangements pool together contact information collected through any Seventh Data forms or email campaigns and any other opted-in website forms or email campaigns to identify a visitor to the Seventh Data Site. Whenever a visitor goes to any third party opted-in website, Seventh Data may receive in the pooled marketing reports certain Personal Information about you, limited to your name and email address, even if you have not directly provided us this information.

Seventh Data may also use cookies to personally identify you so that Seventh Data can understand your actions on our website. Seventh Data may receive information that identifies you personally within the third party marketing reports based on links you have clicked in emails or information you have submitted in online web forms. This Personal Information may be provided to Seventh Data as a result of information you provide third parties on non-Seventh Data Web sites.

If you HAVE NOT enabled "Do Not Track" functionality in your web browser, then Seventh Data may continue to gain access to your Personal Information as identified in the third party marketing reports, based upon your use of and access to non-Seventh Data Web sites. If you HAVE enabled "Do Not Track" functionality in your web browser, then Seventh Data’s use of and access to your Personal Information by way of the third party marketing reports will be strictly limited, and your personally identifiable cookies will expire within 48 hours. Seventh Data will never share information about your page view visits on our site with other non-Seventh Data Web sites. Seventh Data will never sell your page view visits to any third parties.

Joint Offerings

From time to time, Seventh Data may partner with other companies to jointly offer products or services. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service from us, Seventh Data may share information collected in connection with your purchase or expression of interest with our joint promotion partner(s). Seventh Data does not control our business partners' use of the information we share with them, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may opt not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.

International Transfer of Information Collected

To facilitate Seventh Data's global operations, Seventh Data may transfer and access information regarding Seventh Data customers from around the world, including the United States. This Privacy Policy shall apply even if Seventh Data transfers information regarding Seventh Data customers to other countries.

Customer Data

Seventh Data customers may electronically submit data or information to the Seventh Data platform for hosting and processing purposes ("Customer Data"). Seventh Data will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided in the Seventh Data Terms of Use, or as may be required by law. In accordance with the Seventh Data Terms of Use, Seventh Data may access Customer Data only for the purpose of providing the Seventh Data services, preventing or addressing service or technical problems, at a Seventh Data customer's request in connection with customer support matters, or as may be required by law.


Personal Information collected through a Seventh Data Site is kept in a secure database and all reasonable precautions are taken to secure this data. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from a Seventh Data Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to Seventh Data via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Information to Seventh Data via the Internet. The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information on our registration pages or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
