This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by MessageYes, Inc. (“MessageYes,” “we,” or “us”). This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you access or use our websites (the “Sites”).

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Sites to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

The types of information we may collect include your name, company name, title, email address, postal address, phone number, and any other information you choose to provide.

Additionally, you may sign up through our Sites to participate in an interactive demonstration of MessageYes’ message-based commerce platform (a “Demo”). If you choose to participate in a Demo, we will send you text messages with sample offers to the mobile phone number you provided simulating a typical interaction with a customer in order to demonstrate the capabilities of MessageYes’ platform. We may collect information relating to your participation in the Demo (including when you reply to any Demo offers).
