- TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USES OF COLLECTED INFORMATION
We collect two types of information about Users of our Services: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Furthermore, in order to access certain aspects of the Services, you must allow Accuware to access information about the physical site where our Services operate (“Site“). By authorizing Accuware to access your account, you hereby grant Accuware access to certain information in your Site’s profile, including but not necessarily limited to: basic information including (but not limited to) address and geographic location; extended profile information including (but not limited to) visitor traffic volume; and, other information which our systems enable us to access. If at any point the information Accuware requires by your access necessitates a higher level of access, these Terms and Conditions shall be amended accordingly and Accuware will notify you of said changes in the manner set forth above. By allowing Accuware to access your Site information, you hereby agree to any and all terms and conditions imposed on you in connection with said procedure, your use of the Site and any and all Sites and/or applications and/or other data or content in connection therewith.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific End User. This type of information may include (but is not necessarily limited to) things like the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL“) of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using, the MAC address of your mobile device, and the type of mobile device you may be using to access the Services. We may automatically collect this information when you use our Services through the use of electronic tools like Cookies. We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Services, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities.
Linking of MAC Address to Personally Identifiable Information. You understand and agree that by engaging in certain Identification Activities, you are permitting us to: a) store and access your Personally Identifiable Information; b) link your Personally Identifiable Information to the MAC address of your device and your location, as offered by the device with which you access the Internet and/or our Services; and, c) use your Personally Identifiable Information in such other ways which accord with the terms and conditions herein set forth.
- RELEASE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
“Third Party Service Providers” perform functions on our behalf, like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with such Third Party Service Providers to fulfill orders, deliver packages, send postal or email, remove repetitive information on customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, provide search results and links, process credit card payments, operate the Services, troubleshoot, and provide customer service.
We may also share your information with individuals or companies with whom we have a contractual relationship to provide certain aspects of the Services, and in particular those entities who a) are registered clients of Accuware; and/or b) with whom Accuware has a contractual relationship to share Personally Identifiable Information; (each an “Affiliate” and collectively, “Affiliates“). Sharing this Personally Identifiable Information may allow an Affiliate (as defined below) and/or Accuware to provide services for you. However, we will only share Personally Identifiable Information with Affiliates if you engage in an Identification Activity, and then only to the Affiliate involved in that Identification Activity. We specifically disclaim any responsibility or liability for the actions of such Affiliate. While we inform them that they are only permitted to communicate with you for the purposes of the specific service provided by Accuware, we do not have any responsibility for the actions of the Affiliate, and the actions of the Affiliate are not in our control. We may share your information with such Affiliates to accomplish our administrative tasks and/or to fulfill our obligations to said Affiliates, including, but not limited to, the obligation to provide said Affiliates with data regarding your use of their services, your use of our Services at a Site, your presence on-site, and other Personally Identifiable Information which is valuable to our Affiliates.
We encourage our Affiliates and Third Party Service Providers to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personally Identifiable Information by such parties is governed by the privacy policies of such parties and is not subject to our control and you hereby agree in no way is Accuware liable to you for such Affiliates’ or Third Party Service Providers’ use of your information as collected through the Services.
- RELEASE OF NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We may disclose or share Non-Personally Identifiable Information with Third Party Service Providers and Affiliates. We also use Third Party Service Providers to track and analyze Non-Personally Identifiable usage and volume statistical information from our Users to administer our Services and constantly improve their quality. We may also publish this information for promotional purposes. Please note that this is not Personally Identifiable Information, only general summaries of the activities of our Users. Such data is collected on our behalf, and is owned and used by us.
- UPDATING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION
We believe that you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information you provide us. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information by contacting us. We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information with us if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on the Services. In addition, it may be impossible for us to completely delete all of your information because we periodically backup information. If you choose to provide credit card information to us, this is stored on a secure server. You may request us to delete your credit card information at any time by contacting us.
- USER CHOICES ON COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, although it may be required to engage in a certain activity on the Services. You cannot opt-out of Administrative Emails. “Administrative Emails” relate to a User’s activity on our Services and the Website, and include emails regarding a particular User’s account, requests or inquiries, and the purchasing of products and services. In contrast to Administrative Emails, however, you do have a choice with respect to Promotional Emails. “Promotional Emails” advertise our products and services, including sales and other offers, and/or announcements and newsletters. If you do not want to receive Promotional Emails from us, you may elect to opt-out of receiving Promotional Emails at any time after registering by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, by writing to us at the address contained herein, or by requesting that we “unsubscribe” you from our e-mails. When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, and what Promotional Emails you do not want to receive.
- SECURITY OF INFORMATION
We take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identifiable Information. You can contact us to modify your Personally Identifiable Information on our Services. We recommend that you do not share your account password with anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. We encrypt certain sensitive information (such as credit card information) to ensure that your Personally Identifiable Information is safe as it is stored by us.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted through the Services, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
- DATA TRACKING
Other Tracking Devices. We may use other industry standard technologies including (but not limited to) scripts to track your use of our Services, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf.
- DATA RETENTION
When used by our customers, our Services may collect data, such as mobile devices’ MAC addresses, at the Sites where the Services operate. This data is owned by our customers. We store this data in our servers temporarily, on behalf of our customers, and delete all data from our servers within 30 days.
- PRIVACY POLICIES OF THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Minors under the age of 18 may not use the Services. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18, and no part of the Services is designed or intended to attract anyone under the age of 18. Accuware strongly urges parents, legal guardians and adults to use Internet filtering technology to restrict access to minors in their care to our site and Services.
