When you use our website, online services or applications, we obtain certain information using automated technologies, such as cookies, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies. A "cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor's computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor's browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon," also known as an internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, is a tiny graphic image that may be used in our websites or emails. We use these automated technologies to collect your device information, internet activity information, and inferences as described above. These technologies help us to, remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it, track and understand how you use and interact with our online services and emails, tailor our online services to your preferences, measure how useful and effective our services and communications are to you and otherwise manage and enhance our products and services. We set some of these automated technologies ourselves, but others are set by third parties who deliver services on our behalf. For example, we may use other companies' web analytics services (described in the "Third-Party Sites and Services" section), which use automated technologies to help us evaluate how customers use our websites. Your browser can alert you when cookies are placed on your device, and how you can stop or disable them via your browser settings. Please note, however, that without cookies all of the features of our online services may not work properly. If you use a mobile device, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by changing the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Apjax may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
Apjax always takes the security of your personal information very seriously. We take reasonable measures, including administrative, technical, and physical safeguards, to protect your information from loss, theft, and misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We also use SSL Certificates and vulnerability scanning to enhance the security of our site. However, the internet is not a 100% secure environment, and we cannot guarantee absolute security of the transmission or storage of your information. We recommend that you use anti-virus software, routine credit checks, firewalls, and other precautions for extra protection. We hold information about you with the assistance of third-party service providers. When you use some Apjax products, services, or applications or post on an Apjax forum, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by signing in to your Apjax account page. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access for any purpose including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Apjax is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. We may also decline aspects of deletion or access requests if we believe doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes as described earlier.
The California Consumer Privacy Act provides California consumers with the right to obtain from Apjax information about the personal information about you that we collect, use, and disclose. You can exercise your rights through an authorized Apjax specialist by contacting us.
To provide location-based services on Apjax products or services, Apjax and our partners and licensees, such as maps data providers, may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apjax computer or device. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices' approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apjax and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your device may share its geographic location with application providers when you use their location services. Some location-based services offered by Apjax, require your personal information for the feature to work.
Apjax websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children using any Apjax product or service. Our Services are general audience services not directed at children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
We may amend this Privacy Notice from time to time by posting a revised version and updating the "Effective Date" above. The revised version will be effective on the "Effective Date" listed. We will provide you with reasonable prior notice of material changes in how we use your information, including by email, if you have provided one. If you disagree with these changes, you may cancel your account at any time. If you keep using our Services, you consent to any amendment of this Privacy Notice.
