What Information we Collect
We collect contact information for your first name, your last name, and email address.
How we Collect Information
We use a sign-up form, that has been built using the tools provided by MailChimp. The information collected is provided by you manually typing in your details in each field of the sign-up form. The sign-up form is advertised in the footer section of ByteTree.com, on CryptoComposite.com, in the footer section of each published blog article, as well as on the ByteTree Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.
What we Use the Data for
The data collected is used to send out monthly newsletters to the email address you have provided. The emails outline the content that has been published by ByteTree.com during the previous four weeks. At times we may send out additional correspondence in response to events that happen outside the window of the last newsletter. The monthly newsletter will be sent out on the second Wednesday of each month. ByteTree reserves the right to change the schedule at any time.
Implemented Security for Storing the Data Safely
The data provided by you is stored in MailChimp, using their audience list function. Only selected members of the ByteTree team have access to the user account for MailChimp, which requires a two-factor verification code to access in addition to the login details. No other third party has or will ever have access to this data.
After providing your details through the Mailchimp sign-up form, you may at any time opt-out/unsubscribe from the ByteTree mailing list. The option to unsubscribe is in any correspondence sent by ByteTree, including in the subscription confirmation email you would have received after signing up. To unsubscribe, please follow the link listed in the footer, in any emails sent by ByteTree. Upon choosing and confirming the unsubscription process, Mailchimp’s automation system will immediately delete any data you provided to ByteTree.com. We will have no further access to your data, and you will not receive any additional correspondence from us.
