Platform privacy policy


In what follows, the term platform refers to Neticle Media Intelligence.

Users (data subjects) are persons who have access to the platform. We store their name, email address and password to the platform. We log their activities on the platform, such as creating a report or performing data filtering to understand usage patterns and functionality priorities.

The platform’s users belong to clients, which are legal entities. (Individual users registered on the platform without naming a legal entity (their company) to which they belong are clients as well and hold the related responsibility and obligations.)

Public data is collected by the platform’s searching and crawling modules from news portals, blogs, forums and other social media sites. Our data collection respects and follows these platforms’ privacy policies and terms of usage.

Administrators are employees of Neticle Media Intelligence platform creator Neticle PLC. They are developers, account managers or analysts who might help users with steps, questions or report creation. Administrators handle all client information and data confidentially and cannot share them with 3rd parties without written permission from the client.

Website refers to Neticle Media Intelligence main page (https://neticle.com/mediaintelligence/) and sub-pages on this domain. It does not refer to the platform related pages that are available on the sub-domain app.neticle.com

Data we manage

With Neticle Media Intelligence we handle 2 types of data:

  • data about our users,
  • data that we collect and process from public media and public social media

The platform acts as data controller and data processor regarding the user data, and for the data we collect from public online media and social media, their owners act as data controllers and the platform is the data processor.

Managing user data

The platform uses standard authentication methods and stores our users’ names, email addresses and passwords for login. No other personal or sensitive data is collected mandatorily. During automated registrations users can provide additional information to help our Administrators to give customized support. This data can be the user’s phone number, industry, position or country.

Users can provide card payment information to use the platform. Credit/debit card data is stored in a secure, encrypted way and the 3rd party payment services only receive the necessary data to manage the payment.

The user data is stored in a secured and encrypted database. We do not trade this data and do not give access to 3rd parties.

The platform can use the emails of the users to share the latest platform updates with them.

The platform can send email notifications on specific triggers, for example if a certain amount of online mentions are found for a keyword.

Users and card data can be deleted from the platform permanently upon client request or user request.

Managing collected public data

The platform automatically collects public data from online media and social media sites. The collected data is stored, analyzed, text analyzed and summarized by the platform. The results can be accessed via the platform dashboard or exported into different file formats by the users.

The owners (creators) of the sources of the public data act as data controllers and it's their responsibility to provide the right data privacy and usage notices to their users.


Clients can also integrate the platform with their in-house IT solutions and databases. Even in this case no user data is accessible.

Showing analysis results on dashboard

Users can see the result of the data processing and analyzing via a web-based dashboard from their browsers. They can see charts and summarizations and also export the data.

3rd parties and other clients’ users do not have access to this dashboard.

Exporting the data

Users can export data and analysis results into different file formats. These files can contain the original data and the calculated data as well.

The exporting functions are only available for users of the client and the administrators of the platform.

Access to personal data during development and support

In special cases administrators of the platform might need to access personal data for testing or troubleshooting purposes. They do not have the right to copy or share personal information.

Platform data security

Storing and processing data

The owner of the platform, Neticle PLC. (https://neticle.com/) uses the computing capacity of Microsoft Azure Cloud and rents servers from a server room located at Budapest, Victor Hugo street 18-22. The related physical security and availability is guaranteed by the providers, while on the software side Neticle PLC. does regular security maintenance, security updates and maintains a professional user permission structure.

Neticle PLC. also does regular updates and internal security audits for each software component and their frameworks.

Sharing analysis output

The output of the analysis is available via a password protected dashboard through a web-browser.

Only authenticated users who have the necessary access rights can export the results via different file formats.

Website privacy policy

We act as data controllers of this data.

We send the newsletter subscribers regular emails about important product updates or new use-cases. We send them such information maximum 2 times a month. We use their personal info (first name, last name, email) to provide personalized content in our newsletter if possible. We store this data in our CRM platform and our email marketing platform, we do not share this data with 3rd parties.

Administrators (aka our employees) have access to the personal data. They are obliged to manage it as confidential data.
