How we collect and use your data while protecting your privacy.
The HubSpot Subscription Service allows Educational Social Media Ltd to build marketing webpages on our servers where visitors can learn more about the company, download content, provide their contact information and other demographic information. This information, which is stored and managed on our service providers' servers, is used for our own marketing and lead generation. It is also then used to contact visitors about their interest in the company's goods or services and interact with the company.
We use our website to build webpages that people can visit to learn more about our business. The information collected is used, disclosed and protected by us according to our privacy policies, and as required by law.

This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use the information you provide except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on our behalf.
We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
