This week Cited launched the Enable ERMS Report – a new service that gives anyone with a profile in Enable ERMS, the ability to request a copy of this information for only $38.50. Previously this was available in a manual process, where you could request a Privacy Report that cost $110. After informing those eligible that this solution is available, we received a range of questions, comments and responses in the last 24 hours. We felt it was appropriate to answer these in one article, so here it is.
We encourage open conversation on this topic as we value privacy, transparency and delivering great value through the Cited platform for our users.
