This Policy describes the following:





We collect information about you directly from you and automatically through your use of our Platform to allow reoccurring access to our Platform, track your performance and receive updates through our newsletter. We may combine information automatically collected with other information that we have collected about you including from publicly available sources including Google Analytics, and social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.


In order to help you protect yourself and your information, we encourage you to provide only that information that is necessary for using our Platform.


SembraMedia is not directed to children under 13 years of age and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will promptly delete such personal information from our systems.






  • User Information. When a User comes to SembraMedia to set up an online account, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, email address, phone number, physical location, education and training background and any other information you provide us or is required for the use of the Platform.
  • Account Information. Users may give us permission to access their information in other services. For example, with your consent, you may link your SembraMedia account with your Google, Microsoft Office 365 account, or other similar service, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts. The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.
