Imium ltd will use the client’s business email address and postal address to send clients and relevant information. This information will be stored on our customer relationship management system for marketing use. If the client feels the information they receive is not relevant, they can unsubscribe using the link at the end of the email campaign, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and the request will be actioned within 3 business working days. We will remove the marketing marker from the system.
