Privacy settings - important changes

About a month ago we announced updates to our Privacy Policy. Today, we futher improve our service by letting our Users manage their privacy settings.

Personalized ads

No one likes advertisements - however, for many web sites they often are important source of additional income. We display ads only to anonymous visitors (users that are not logged in) and to users without an active PREMIUM subscription.

From May 25, 2018, all ads we display on our website are non-personalized by default. What does it mean?

Ads personalization is based on user's interests and visited pages. Our third party partners (like Google AdSense) may use technologies such as cookies or similar means to gather information about your activities in our web site in order to identify you and provide you personalized ads. From now on, such behavior in our Service is disabled by default, and you can opt-in for personalized advertising if you wish to do so.

If you are visiting our pages anonymously (without logging in), we will display the appropriate popup message:

If you own an ATmatix account, you can update your privacy options in the Consents tab on your Account settings page:

Informational and promotional e-mails

There is more. If you register an account, we can send you e-mail messages regarding our application's new features, promotions or your individual subscription discount offers. From May 25, we won't send this kind of messages by default any more.  If you wish to receive such e-mails, enable the appropriate option in your Account settings.

Such consent can be revoked at any time, furthermore every e-mail message contains an unsubscribe link you can click to opt-out immediately.

We can still however, according to our Terms of Service, send you messages related to your Account, orders or payments processing (such as reset password, payment confirmations or your PREMIUM account expiration reminders) and other important information on our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy updates.

Notifications about events and patterns detected by our algorithms remain enabled by default - this is our service feature that is available to PREMIUM users only (or to users that utilize our Trial Period) and can be enabled or disabled at any time on the Account settings page (or disabled with an unsubscribe link included in every message).

Please remember that registering an account is entirely voluntary and free of charge, and you can request the removal of your account (in case you withdraw your consent for personal data processing) at any time - please refer to our Privacy Policy for more information.

Updates to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

We would like to inform all our Users that we are updating our Terms of Service.
The new version of these Terms and the new Privacy Policy will come into effect on May 25, 2018.

You can view the revised documents by clicking the links below:

The new Privacy Policy document contains the detailed information on what data we collect, how it is processed and how you can correct it or ask us to delete it.
Furthermore, it describes our cookies policy, advertisements and social media features to give you more transparency about the usage of your data.

These changes are necessary to meet the standard for data privacy introduced by the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

As we have mentioned before, these changes will take effect on May 25, 2018. If for any reason you don't agree to the new version of the Terms and would rather remove your account, please contact us by email as described in the Privacy Policy document, before that day. If you choose to keep using ATmatix once the changes occur, you will be doing so under the new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

We will inform our registered Users about these changes soon, by email.
