Subject Re: Unsolicited email from CouchBase
Date Sat, 31 Aug 2013 09:50:48 GMT
I can confirm that I indeed have an IrisCouch account, so it seems that explains it.  I wasn't
aware of the Iris Couch - CouchBase connection.

I probably checked a box stating I'd read the privacy policy which, as usual, I did not. As
far as privacy policies go it's actually pretty clear and to-the-point, so I praise them for
that, but it seems something like this line should be highlighted a bit better. Or maybe I
should just read privacy policies before I accept them.

Anyway, if you're not the customer you're the product; no such thing as a free lunch, etc.
 I think I would have happily accepted these terms for the free Iris Couch account anyway,
it would just be nice if they were laid out up front and centre.

See the Iris Couch policy here: (search for "privacy" or "couchbase").
