The FreeAgent Subscription Service
Our Subscription Service allows users (typically small to medium size businesses) to create and share information, often including information about their customers. The Subscription Service can also be used to help organize information about a company’s sales (e.g., leads, customers, deals, etc.). The information added to the Subscription Service when a Subscription Service user adds the information, is stored and managed on our service providers’ servers (currently Amazon). FreeAgent provides the Subscription Service to our customers for their own business needs.

Our customers use the Subscription Service to improve their business operations. When customers use the Subscription Service, they may collect Personal Data such as first and last name, email address, physical address, or phone number. FreeAgent does not control the content or type of Personal Data that our customers may choose to collect or manage using the Subscription Service.
