PROTELI is committed to protecting the privacy of our web site visitors and clients. We uphold the highest industry standards in online privacy and permission marketing. For more information on how PROTELI enforces permission email marketing with our clients, please see our Anti-spam policy.
Security and Privacy
PROTELI’s web site uses security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We store the information in a database in a secure environment at our data center.
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you e-mails based on your requesting information.
Our members and their subscribers are given the opportunity to ‘opt-in’ to having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information.
Users of our site will always be notified if their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this to ensure that our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
You will be added to PROTELI’s email newsletter list only if you register to receive newsletters via a form on the PROTELI website. You may opt-out of receiving our newsletters by clicking on the opt-out link included in every email newsletter we send, or by contacting abuse@PROTELI.com.
Refer a Friend/Forward-to-a-Friend Functionality
If you feel that information about PROTELI could be useful for a third party you know (e.g. your friends or family members etc.), you may use our forward-to-a-friend functionality. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about PROTELI, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. PROTELI stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
If you use our blog feature on this site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit in a publicly-viewable blog comment can be read, collected, or otherwise used by anyone who reads the blog or who visits the URL of the blog post you have chosen to comment on. We are not responsible for non-PROTELI use of this information.
We post video customer testimonials on our web site, which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer’s name. We obtain the customer’s consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.
At times we will use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site. We also may track browser types to help us understand our visitors’ needs related to our web site design.
There is an optional section of our web site where input forms require your name, phone number, company, and e-mail address. This form provides the ability to opt-in to receiving future emails of any sort from PROTELI. If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us, then we may send information to you on our products or services.
This information will not be used for any other purpose. We do, however, reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
You may review and change your information with us at any time by clicking on the “modify profile” link on the site or similar found at the bottom of emails sent via our system, or by contacting us at abuse@PROTELI.com
To opt-out from having any provided information used for email communications from us, please click on the opt-out (unsubscribe) link in any message you receive from us. This will allow you to unsubscribe or update your message preferences. Alternately, you may contact us at abuse@PROTELI.com,
We utilize a third-party service provider for our online live chat functionality.
In order to determine a user’s ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened, PROTELI includes a “web beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers.
This capability helps PROTELI send email in a format users can read and enables PROTELI, and our clients that use the functionality, to track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format.
We also use, and provide our clients with, the capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked. This click tracking functionality does not collect any personally identifiable information.
Client-side cookies are used to verify the login status of customers using products or services linked directly with our website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site; however, the user may not be able to access all areas of our site.

Anti-SPAM at PROTELI
Our clients certify that they will use our software only to send emails to customers and prospects that have directly consented (opted-in) to receive email. They are forbidden to transmit unsolicited commercial email (spam) via our system. PROTELI does not buy or sell email lists, nor do we allow our clients to use purchased or harvested email lists (see below).
Additionally, PROTELI offers confirmed opt-in as an optional tool for our clients to use to help minimize allegations of spam and abuse. When a list is designated as “confirmed opt-in,” PROTELI’s system automatically sends a follow-up email to each subscriber on such lists asking the recipient to verify that they wish to receive communications via email. Only those subscribers responding affirmatively will be opted-in to future mailings sent via the PROTELI system.
We additionally require that clients reconfirm (permission pass) or stop mailing an existing list when it is determined to be in violation of our anti-spam policies. Repeated violations or failures to comply with our policies will result in termination of that client’s access to the PROTELI system.
Our clients agree not to send unsolicited email via our system. For any opt-in list of email addresses used in PROTELI’s system, clients agree to provide us with the source of the email addresses, the method used for recipient signup, and details surrounding the process used, and whatever other information relates to the transaction or sign-up process used. This includes, but isn’t limited to, date and time of sign up, IP address of signup, website signed up from, and whatever other information the client asked of the recipient at point of sign up.
Our clients certify that they will not use rented or purchased lists, email append lists, or any other list that contains email addresses captured in any other method
