We may obtain supplemental information about you from parent, sister or subsidiary companies as well as from other third parties to better serve you or better communicate with you.
Business Technology Information
While not typically collected by our Web sites, you should know that Harte Hanks assembles Business Technology Information used in connection with sending marketing communications to certain employees within specific types of business entities. The Business Technology Information we assemble is intended to describe business's entities including information about the business’ technical infrastructure, technology installations and other details specific to the business. In addition, our Business Technology Information also describes personally identifiable information of key employees within the business entity responsible for certain business operations within the organization. We want you to know that as an employee of a business described within our Business Technology Information, we may identify you and compile information about your role within the business and personally identifiable information in connection with the business. We collect Business Technology Information through our communication efforts with you directly or through indirect means such as communications with other representatives of your company, from publicly available information or from third parties. We make Business Technology Information available to our clients so they may, or Harte Hanks may on their behalf, market their products and services to your business enterprise through you, the employee.
We want you and your company to welcome our attempts to assemble Business Technology Information and your participation in such efforts is completely voluntary. You have a choice to request that you not be contacted in connection with our efforts to collect Business Technology Information, that we reschedule our attempts to contact you or specify that we contact you in a different manner.
