Our online Subscription Service allows users (typically small to medium size businesses) to create and share marketing, sales and customer service content. The Subscription Service can also be used to help organize sales data about a company’s sales pipeline (e.g., leads, customers, deals, etc.). The information added to the Subscription Service, either by site visitors providing their contact information or when a Subscription Service user adds the information, is stored and managed on our service providers' servers. HubSpot provides the Subscription Service to our customers for their own marketing, sales, CRM, and customer service needs.
Our customers use the Subscription Service to build webpages that people can visit to learn more about their business. When customers use the Subscription Service, they may collect Personal Data such as first and last name, email address, physical address, or phone number.
