This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Project Bordeaux, Inc., (collectively “Inbox Monster”), and its affiliates and subsidiaries collect, use, maintain and disclose information collected from users (“Users”) of the inboxmonster.com website, app.inboxmonster.com platform, and its related social media accounts.

What Information Is Covered By This Policy?

At times, and to allow Inbox Monster to do its job, Inbox Monster may receive personally identifiable information for those purposes outlined in its agreements with Users. Those agreements between Inbox Monster and its Users, in addition to applicable provisions of this Privacy Policy, govern what Inbox Monster does with User Data.

User Data

The types of User Data (i.e., data collected from visitors to Inbox Monster’s website) we collect for Inbox Monster’s own business purposes, and how it is used or shared depends on the reason(s) why it was collected. The purpose, however, is always to facilitate communication with businesses and people who utilize, or may become a future User of, Inbox Monster’s website. To that end, Inbox Monster collects the following categories of User Data on this Site:

Identifiable information, and anonymous information, through technologies such as “cookies” collected when you visit and interact with the Site.

Identifiable personal information you voluntarily give us (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or other information requested) so that we can communicate with prospective Users, current Users, former Users, and visitors further about our services, offerings, as well as in the course of providing services to Inbox Monster Users, whether or not collected through the Site, or otherwise.

User also grants Inbox Monster broad rights to use de-identified data, including de-identified User Data collected by us through your use of the Inbox Monster Platform and Services, which rights continue even after an Agreement ends. Except for our limited rights to use the User Data, we acquire no right, title or interest from you or your Users, including any intellectual property rights therein.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

We may collect PII from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, fill out a form, respond to a survey, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site or outside or the Site. By way of example, Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, mailing address, phone number. We will collect PII from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us through the Site or otherwise. Users can always refuse to supply PII, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities or obtaining services from Inbox Monster for which it is necessary to first obtain such information.

Web Browser Cookies, Pixels, and Other Tracking

Your Choices, Access, and Rights to Personal Data

You may change, edit, update, or delete the information that you provided when you set up your account through our Service(s) through your account settings. You may also request the deletion of this information by sending an email to privacy@inboxmonster.com.

As a Data Subject, you have the right to request access to your Personal Data as it exists in our records by emailing us at privacy@inboxmonster.com. You also have the right to rectify, correct, or amend your Personal Data if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You may also have the ‘right to erasure’ of your Personal Data; however, this is not always possible due to legal requirements and exceptions may apply. A Data Subject may have the right to object to the processing of his or her Personal Data, for example, due to his or her particular situation, for direct marketing uses, or for scientific or historical research. In certain circumstances, Data Subjects may have the right to obtain a restriction on our processing of their Personal Data, in which case such Personal Data will, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the Data Subject’s consent or in circumstances such as our exercise or defense of legal claims or the protection of another person. Data Subjects may also have the right to request that we provide data portability for their Personal Data via a copy of the data in a commonly-used format and/or transfer their Personal Data directly to another data controller (where technically feasible). Exceptions to these rights may apply, for example, if the processing is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest. Finally, if a Data Subject has given his or her consent to our processing of his or her Personal Data for certain purposes, he or she has the right to withdraw consent to such use at any time by contacting us via the contact information below.

Data Retention

We retain the Personal Information we collect where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). This means that we retain different categories of data for different periods of time depending on the category of user to whom the data relates, the type of data, and the purposes for which we collected the data. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or aggregate it. At any time, users may request deletion of their account data immediately by sending an email to privacy@inboxmonster.com. When we delete your account, it cannot be recovered.

Data Processor

We may collect, use, and disclose certain Personal Data about you when acting as service provider to an organization that uses or provides our Site or Services. These organizations are responsible for ensuring that your privacy rights are respected, and should include information to help you understand how third parties collect and use your Personal Data. To the extent that we are acting as a data processor, we will process your Personal Data according to the terms of our agreement with the respective organization and its lawful instructions.

We currently use third party subprocessors to provide infrastructure services (Amazon Web Services), to help us provide customer support (Intercom), and for email communication purposes (Google Workspace). Prior to engaging any third party subprocessor, we perform due diligence to evaluate their privacy, security and confidentiality practices.

We reserve the right to request proof of age at any stage so that we can verify that minors are not using the Service(s).
