We do not "sell" data. We provide access to our data through our deployment services we handle and manage all in-house. Email and Postal data is only available on a rental or "use" agreement.
Our lists consist of information obtained through opt-in online surveys, e-subscriptions, e-registrations and our extensive network of permission-based websites. These sites are owned and/or managed by our team and partners. We also have a data compliance team that ensures that our opt-in language is clear and conspicuous for our consumers to see when signing up for our marketing broadcasts.
Any data obtained is put through a thorough hygiene and validation process for deliver-ability using multiple 3rd party sources. We then use partner sourcing for data profiling, appending up to 400 available selects or demographic filters for precise targeting of an individual.

Every record received also has the opt-in date, IP and source for compliance purposes. Our teams follow data security best practices to ensure all of our compliance steps are followed and there are no breaches.

Before any actual hard costs are provided the advertiser/client needs to send us what materials they will be providing, which allows us to provide much more accurate costs.
The testing process is sent from one central IP/server that is shared and used for all of our clients. This is no indication of 'delivery' on our email deployments and is used for reviewing the creative only. During broadcast our deployments to our database are sent using a multitude of servers, IPs and domains that are constantly rotating in order to maximize inbox delivery.
As a general rule of thumb cut-off times are 4 hours before close of business to get APPROVAL on a campaign in order to guarantee delivery for the NEXT business day. This can and will vary on certain busy days of the year prior to holidays such as Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc... Any approvals made outside of this time frame will be handled on opening of next business day unless otherwise notified (clients must contact their sales representative).
We are in full compliance of all the requirements set forth by the FTC in 2003 called the CAN-Spam Act. More information can be found here: https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/can-spam-act-compliance-guide-business
We receive new records and updates on existing records on a daily basis. Database is constantly being scrubbed (removing undeliverable and inactive records) and refreshed. As a whole we update our entire file on a quarterly basis as well.
