We provide a media database containing personal data from media influencers like you to help media professionals to connect with you more efficiently. We call you an influencer because we believe you have the ability to influence the behaviour and opinions of others and the society. Journalists working at a media publication, freelancers writing articles for media outlets, and other influencers on various social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin may all be called influencer. The media database can be accessed by our customers. Our free customers may have limited access of the media database, for example, free customers can not view email address and phone number. Our paid customers may have full access of the media database.
The information includes basic information such as your name and contact details, your job title, public social media profiles, areas of interest to you. The types of personal data we may collect:
- Prefix and name
- Website url

- Link to LinkedIn profile
- Link to Facebook profile
- Number of social media followers (only when it's made public by you)
- Public social media profile picture

We do not store any sensitive personal data about you unless you have clearly put such data into the public domain (such as on your public Twitter timeline) yourself.
Most of the personal data we hold about you is obtained from you or from publicly available sources such as:
