NEW YORK, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ — To protect your right to privacy online, TransMedia has launched the Glide Free email service that is free of targeted advertising, provides the most full featured email service available, includes 2GBs of free storage and provides one stop access to your other personal and work email accounts.
"Advertising used to be an art. When done well advertising can be both informative and entertaining," said TransMedia Chairman and CEO, Donald Leka. "Today's online advertising, particularly targeted advertising, is unimaginative, invasive and is violating the confidentiality of our web browsing and personal email. The Glide Free Email Service was designed to provide consumers and businesses with a clear and definitive alternative."
"The Glide Free Email Service redefines email with a full-featured word processor for composing multimedia email messages, sophisticated productivity applications for senders and recipients to edit documents, presentations, spreadsheets, photos, personal websites and more, highly advanced rights based file sharing with automated file translation to easily share universally compatible files – all in a simple to use and powerful collaborative email client," said TransMedia Chairman and CEO, Donald Leka.
"Search engine and ad placement technology is being misused by leading email services to read and monetize your private email. If the Post Office had an x-ray scanning device that could read personal letters and then print advertising on envelopes based on the content of personal letters generating revenue for the government, the public and the media would be up in arms. For the most part, people are unaware of how web mail services and search engine and targeted ad placement technology work together. The Glide Free Email Service solves this problem by not using targeted advertising as the business model behind it's service removing the means and the incentive to read and monetize your personal email," said Mr. Leka.
