Our Sources of Information
ReachStream collects information about individuals and companies from a variety of publicly available and other sources, such as company websites, company blogs, non-confidential corporate records or reports (for example SEC filings, commercial registers), press releases, news articles, magazines, social media sites, and other content published by or on behalf of a company or published by data brokers or third parties in accordance with their terms and conditions for the collection, disclosure and sharing of information.

How We Use the Information We Collect
2) Information We Collect From Our Subscribers
The Information our Subscribers provide about themselves or their Business.
Our primary goal in collecting personal information from subscribers of the ReachStream Service is to provide them with a smooth and efficient experience while communicating with us and using ReachStream. This allows us to provide customized services and features that are most likely to meet subscribers’ needs and that make their experience more comfortable and quicker.
When an individual expresses an interest in obtaining Information about ReachStream or registering to use the Service, ReachStream requires the individual to provide us with contact information such as name, company name, address, phone number, and email address. ReachStream may then use the contact information provided to reach the individual via email or phone.
When a subscriber purchases services, ReachStream may require the subscriber to provide financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, payment/credit card number, and the number of employees within the organization that will be using the Service. ReachStream may also ask for additional information, such as annual company revenues, number of employees, or industry.
Payment Card Information
ReachStream does not retain payment or credit card numbers. This information is passed on immediately to our payment card processing service, which is required to use this information only for the processing of each specific transaction.
Once registered for the Service, a subscriber can add companies to his or her watch lists and automated search agents. We will retrieve and share information of interest to a subscriber, such as noteworthy events, address, phone number, and names of contacts on the companies that the subscriber wishes to watch.
Information Our Subscribers may provide for the Lead Referral Program
If a subscriber chooses to use our lead referral service to refer a third party to our site, the subscriber must first ensure that his/her business partner has agreed to share their contact or other information with us. In this case, we will ask for the third party’s contact name, email address, and phone number. We will use this information to contact the third party (for example, via a one-time email or phone call) about becoming a subscriber of ReachStream. ReachStream stores this information for the sole purpose of following up on the lead and tracking the success of our referral program.
The third-party may contact us at <privacy@ReachStream.com> to request that we remove their information from our lead referral contact list.
