Sharing of Reports and Subscriptions

Print

At SeaIntel Maritime Analysis we believe that customer needs must be given the highest priority, and that the analysis and data we provide should be immediately accessible to all relevant stakeholders within the client organisation. We acknowledge that the true customer is the organisation that our users are employed at, and not the individual user, and that is why ALL our reports, subscriptions and services are company-wide by default, instead of being tied to the individual user.

 

How to share purchased reports and subscriptions with your organisation

When purchasing a report or subscription from SeaIntel.com, users are asked if they wish to share their purchase with their organisation, during the check-out process. For practical reasons, we determine the user’s organisation based on the email domain of the user’s email address, e.g. example.com would be the email domain of This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If the user chooses to share their purchase, an email is sent to the SeaIntel.com administrators that a request for sharing has been made, and the administrators then determine if the email domain is a valid organisational domain. Requests for sharing will usually be responded to within one business day.

If the requested email domain is deemed a valid organisational domain, the user will receive an email notifying them their purchases have been shared with their organisation, and their sharing status will be updated under the user’s Account page.

Any existing SeaIntel.com registered users with the same email domain will then receive an email notifying them that a report or subscription has been has been shared with them, and they can now access the report/subscription through their SeaIntel.com account.

New SeaIntel.com registered users, with the same email domain, will have immediate access to the shared reports/subscriptions through their SeaIntel.com account, once they have completed registration.

The purchasing user can at any time stop sharing their subscription, and all existing SeaIntel.com registered users that had been given access to the user’s report/subscription will receive a notification that the report/subscription is no longer shared.

As we can only share purchases within distinct organisational domains, it is unfortunately NOT possible to share your subscription if your email domain is from a general email service provider, such as e.g. @gmail.com, @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, etc.

 

Example

Jane Doe from Example Inc purchases a one-year subscription to the SeaIntel Sunday Spotlight, and during checkout she chooses to share her subscription with her organisation. Upon completion of check-out, an email is automatically sent to the SeaIntel.com administrators, notifying This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. has requested to share her subscription with all users from example.com

The SeaIntel.com administrators verify that example.com is a valid organisational email domain, and Jane Doe receives an email notifying her that her subscription has been shared with her organisation, and the sharing options are now visible under Jane Doe’s Account page.

An Example Inc colleague of Jane’s, John Deer with email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , is already a registered user of SeaIntel.com. As he shares organisational email domain with Jane Doe, he receives an automatic email notifying him that This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. has shared her Spotlight subscription, and when he logs in to SeaIntel.com, he can access all issues of the SeaIntel Sunday Spotlight.

Another colleague at Example Inc, James Fawn with email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , is not currently a registered user of SeaIntel.com. Jane send James an email informing him that she has purchased a subscription, and suggests that he creates an account at SeaIntel.com, to be able to access her subscription. James registers a free account with SeaIntel.com, and is immediately granted access to Jane’s subscription.
