Planet Bean websites contain links to other sites. Planet Bean is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites, as their policies may differ from our own.

About Information You Volunteer
In various places on our websites, we may request information from you. This might include your name, email address, other contact info, and demographic data such as your occupation. We limit the amount and type of information gathered to what is necessary for the identified purpose. We use this information to:

  • send you an electronic newsletter, if you’ve requested it,
  • alert you about new products or product updates,
  • provide you with information you have requested about the company or about our products,
  • collect survey data to improve our products and services,
  • notify winners of contests we run periodically,
  • send you or a colleague an email you’ve requested,
  • send you an email confirming a subscription or download,
  • classify our users and correspondents into demographic categories so that we can better track the issues, concerns and preferences of those groups and, ultimately, deliver products and services that more accurately meet their needs.

When you provide us information, we will identify the purpose and use it only for the purpose for which it was collected. We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. When you volunteer information that may be shared with our partners, we will ask you explicitly to grant us such permission by opting in on a web page.

We post customer testimonials on our website which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer’s name. We do obtain the customer’s consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial. This website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Planet Bean.

Please be aware that we, Planet Bean, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site.

For visitors to our site who are under 18 years of age we strongly recommend that you obtain the permission of a parent or guardian before providing us with any information.

Opting Out
When you subscribe to a Planet Bean email publication, we provide simple instructions, in each newsletter, on how you can cancel your subscription. Each message deployed by Planet Bean on behalf of a client contains instructions on how you can opt out of future communications, either via email or through a web page.

About Information We Collect Automatically
A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer that uniquely identifies you. It tells our Web server when you return to a page you’ve already visited. We use cookies in several places:

  • When you download a marketing resource or contact form, we use a cookie to save the information you enter. If you return to the same page later, we can fill in your email address, so you don’t have to re-enter it.
  • When we send you an email with a link to a Web page, we use a cookie to automatically enter your email address on a Web page form, so you don’t have to type it.

Technical and Demographic Information
Planet Bean collects technical and demographic information about you that does not personally identify you. Examples of this type of information include the computer operating system you use, your Internet browser, your domain name and IP address, and the web pages you view. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We use this information to diagnose problems with our website and to better tailor its content to your needs.

Open Rates and Clicks
Planet Bean sends email, on behalf of itself or clients, and tracks the open rates of the HTML version of these messages. This allows us and our clients to improve the quality of the messages we send. Planet Bean cannot track open rates on plain text messages.

​Planet Bean may also track clicks on website links included in the messages.

Information regarding the activity of email recipients is reported to the client who deployed the message through Planet Bean,  and may be used in case studies. Information about specific email recipients is only shared with the client who owns the list on which the recipient’s email address originally appeared.

Planet Bean employs the use of transparent images in our messages for tracking purposes. This only tracks open rates of messages that have been deployed by Planet Bean. Upon opening, messages sent from or behalf of Planet Bean, will send a notification to our internal reporting services.

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and clients. This is not linked to personal information that can identify any individual person.

How We Protect The Information You Provided
Planet Bean takes strong precautions to protect the information you provide from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. In some cases, Planet Bean stores databases for our clients. These lists may contain email addresses, as well as other information the client has collected. A client’s list is subject to the same security as data Planet Bean collects itself, and is never shared with other partners or clients. All Planet Bean employees are made aware of the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure customer information is protected.

How You Can Change Information Provided
If you have provided information to Planet Bean and would like it deleted from our records, or you would like to update information you’ve given us, please send an email to info@Planet Bean
