In particular, Search Engine Optimist has no control over the privacy policies of any vendor or publisher’s website linked through our SEO efforts to ensure good placement in search engines. For example, if an industry site sells a client’s email to a spammer, we cannot be held responsible. That said, Search Engine Optimist will make every effort to protect clients’ information & will use industry best-practices to ensure this.

Search Engine Optimist collects personal information when you register your company with Search Engine Optimist or when you use a credit card. Search Engine Optimist may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.

Search Engine Optimist may occasionally select an especially well-performing client as the subject of a Case Study for our website. In this case, permission will be requested from the client first, and no information that might benefit a competitor will be divulged.

We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Search Engine Optimist’ terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
