Use of client’s data
When you open a lead you have access to all the data we have about that client. This data must used strictly for the purpose of dealing with the enquiry, and must not be kept on file for future mailings or passed to any external company without the client’s express consent.
For example, if a client uses the design quotes service to submit an enquiry requiring photography that we send out to graphic design agencies, they must secure the clients permission before passing any clients data over to a third party photographer.

The date a requirement is published is logged by the system and shown next to the lead. Marketing Bids is not responsible for the validity of the lead once it is posted.
