INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
Booking a demo
On the website heyreach.io, you can book a free demonstration of how the application works. To complete the registration on HeyReach, we will ask you to provide your first name, last name, email address, and company.
This information will be used to select and provide you with the most appropriate demo and follow up with the best offer for your business's needs and requirements. The applied legal basis for these activities is our legitimate interest (GDPR Art. 6.1.f). While signing up for a demo, you may also consent to receive a newsletter from us (GDPR Art. 6.1.a).
Account and Profile Setup
To use the tool’s functionality, you must create an account on HeyReach. We will ask you for your first and last name and email address, have you generate a password, agree to the terms and conditions, and click the sign-up button.
To use HeyReach to automate your LinkedIn activities, you will have to connect your LinkedIn account via your login, password, and a temporary PIN.
NOTE: HeyReach does not keep data on your LinkedIn account password and/or any changes to it.
In Account settings, you can adjust interaction settings for your LinkedIn account, such as the number of messages to be sent, message limit ranges, active time for messaging, and inactive days for messaging.
NOTE: If you want to connect LinkedIn accounts that are not owned by you and are the property of others, you must have their consent or another applicable legal basis under GDPR Art. 6.
After the registration, you can choose how many seats you would like to purchase and complete the payment. Once the payment is completed, you can connect your LinkedIn accounts and/or invite your team members to your organization.
We use your account information to:
- Create and maintain your user account, including in connection with other data points listed below. The applied legal basis for this is the performance of the contract (Terms and conditions) between you and us (GDPR Art. 6.1.b) or, if you connect a LinkedIn account of other people, your legitimate interest (GDPR Art. 6.1.f);
- Contact you regarding the work of the tool or your account, including by email and sending you web notifications (GDPR Art. 6.1.b);
- Analyze the efficiency of our platform in our legitimate interests (GDPR Art. 6.1.f);
- Upon receiving consent from you to send you marketing or promotional materials (GDPR Art. 6.1.a).
We will store your account data, including the categories from the below sections (platform functionality, payments, and technical support), for as long as you have an account with us. We will delete or anonymize your information 12 months after your last user session if you become inactive.
Via the application, you can perform different actions to automate your marketing activities on LinkedIn. We will store and process the following categories of information:
- campaigns that you create and manage on the application;
- messages that you send via LinkedIn, including the date and time of * messages, information about recipients, and message content;
- messages that you send to other application users, including the date and time of messages, recipients, and message content.
The applied legal basis for this is the performance of the contract (Terms and conditions) between you and us (GDPR Art. 6.1.b) or, if you connect a LinkedIn account of other people, your legitimate interest (GDPR Art. 6.1.f).
You can generate monthly or quarterly subscription invoices using the application directly in your profile. In this case, we will process your account data to calculate the amount of financial resources (money). Then, the estimated amount is presented in USD in the invoice.
For payments, you will be prompted to use a third-party payment processing provider, who will store and process your payment information. We will only receive information about payment confirmation from that provider.
The applied legal basis for processing payment information is the contract's performance with you (GDPR Art. 6.1.b). We also retain financial information to analyze our financial performance in our legitimate interests (GDPR Art. 6.1.f) and to comply with applicable accounting and financial laws (GDPR Art. 6.1.c).
You may leave a request for support via the support form on the website or by email. We use this information to provide you with the help you need, fix and improve the application, and analyze our efficiency in marketing and product efforts, including by creating statistics of inquiries.
The applied legal basis for this is the performance of the contract (Terms and conditions) between you and us (GDPR Art. 6.1.b) and our legitimate interest in improving the application (GDPR Art. 6.1.f). In addition, if you connect the LinkedIn accounts of other people, the legal basis is your legitimate interest (GDPR Art. 6.1.f).
