Privacy Policy

These pages explain the Terms of Use for Appical websites, legal and privacy notices for details on how we collect, use and protect your personal information on the website, our security issue disclosure process and information on software products that are accessible by individuals with visual, auditory, and mobility impairments. 

This privacy policy applies to www.appical.com. This privacy policy describes how Appical collects and uses the personal information you provide on our web site. Appical respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our Website without giving us any information about yourself. On occasion, we may need your personal information to provide services that you request, or you may have the option choose to provide us with your personal information. This policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.

Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, credit card number, a company or home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal or product interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested. 

When you browse our Website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Appical to remember your login and password. We don't collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our Website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our Website. Like many other commercial Websites, the Appical Website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to "Cookies and Tracking Information" below for more information. 

Appical collects personal information when you register with Appical for a Appical account, when you use or purchase certain Appical products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, other product promotions, or when you submit your information to Appical for any other reason. From time to time, Appical receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Appical only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.

Access to certain Appical Web pages requires a login and a password. The use of those Web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and Appical. Your personal information may be retained by Appical to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce agreements.

Notice

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. Appical does not intend to transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled "Information Sharing and Disclosure" below. 

If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may transfer that information, within Appical or to Appical's third party service providers, including across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. 

We will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in." This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

Service Providers

We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as shipping your order or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

If Appical is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

Data Security

Your Appical account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. Appical safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our Websites, Appical uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser. 

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards as stated above to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
