Privacy Policy Preamble

The plain English.  As a data company we feel it is in our best interest to be clear with what we do with your data and with data in general.  Some of what we do includes proprietary information which of course we can’t/won’t disclose, but we are writing this preamble so you can quickly and simply understand all the legal bla bla bla below.  

When you interact with us we record your information in our CRM so we can continue to try to sell you our services.  We hope our services are awesome and this is seen as ‘providing useful customer service’.  This information does not cross over with the information we sell.  We might have information on you in both places, but it would be a waste of our time, and a violation of your trust, to take information used by our sales and marketing teams and push it into the data we sell. That would be dumb in so many ways. 

Then there’s the data we sell.  That’s what our business is, we sell data and services based on data (appending, data cleaning, email verification, etc). Sometimes it might be information on you and your company.  We collect and maintain this data in every legal way possible, and when asked we will flag your record and stop providing it to third parties.  This is just good business, no reasonable company wants to waste time trying to sell to uninterested buyers and we don’t want to sell our clients information on people that want to be left alone. Our goal is to facilitate commerce and help companies find the best possible target audience for their product or service. 

There’s a lot more legal CYA information below for things like making sure we are not breaking the law when you visit our site, GDPR, etc.  We use tools like live chat, web visitor tracking, heat maps, and others to get data on our website performance etc.  If you choose to use the MountainTop Data website or any of our products understand that we likely collect any and all information.  

 

Privacy Policy 

Our policy has been updated in order to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), and others. 

This policy lets you know how we collect and use information.  It does not disclose proprietary practices which may include some product and service uses for the data we maintain.  It will give a good idea of how we do and don’t use your data, which may include personally identifiable information, across our products and services. This policy does not cover or explain what other parties may do with any information that we may provide to them.

We maintain two types of information; Customer Service Information and Business Identity Information.  Customer Service Information is used by MountainTop Data to provide marketing materials, information, and services.  Business Identity Information is sold to third parties and or used in products and services provided by MountainTop Data.
