Effective Date: April 2018
Welcome and thank you for visiting the SessionM website (“Site”). SessionM offers a hosted software as a service platform to brands that have contracted with SessionM for consumer data orchestration and engagement (“Brands”). Brands include our partners or resellers that offer our Services in connection or combination with services they provide to their customers, most often through their mobile Brand Applications (defined below). SessionM helps Brands understand their consumers and provide their consumers with personalized offers, campaigns, and loyalty programs. Our platform includes tools for creating audience “segments” based on information about consumers (for example, segments based on age, gender, location, transaction and website or mobile application interaction history). These tools enable Brands to send relevant communications and promotions to certain audience “segments” via email, SMS, push notifications and in-app messaging. Using the tools, Brands can also generate reports on audience segments, create and run surveys, configure and manage loyalty programs, and offer and manage promotions and rewards.
This Policy only applies to Personal Data (as defined below) and other information collected by us from: (i) visitors to our Site and Brands that use our Services, and (ii) job applicants. While providing our Services to Brands, we may receive information related to the Brands’ consumers, and other third parties. Our use of information, including Personal Data on behalf of our Brands is governed by our contract with that Brand and the Brand’s own privacy policies.
