Protection of Information

You can visit our Site as often as you like without registering or submitting personal information. However, if you submit a request to us or initiate a relationship with us through our Site or Software, whether as a customer, vendor, applicant, employee, or contractor, you may be asked for information, including personally identifiable information, that will allow us to fulfill your request. You acknowledge that your use of the Site and/or Software is conditional on your provision of this information. Apptree, Inc. and its affiliates and representatives will use such information solely for the purpose of responding to the submitted request and in accordance with this Privacy Policy; however, we may collect the e-mail addresses received through such requests. In addition, Apptree, Inc. or its affiliates or representatives may collect certain information by automated means.

For example, we collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser when you visit our Site or use the Software. This information typically includes your IP address, the identity of your internet service provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. We also use “cookies” and other web or mobile technologies to collect information and support certain features of our Site and Software. For example, we may use these technologies to collect information about the ways visitors use the Site and Software—which pages they visit, which links they use and how long they stay on each page. The information we collect from your Web browser and from cookies and other Web or mobile technologies does not identify you personally but in some cases, we may link it to personally identifiable information. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie (rather than automatically accept all cookies). However, should you decide not to accept cookies from our Site, you will limit your access to certain benefits provided by the Site. No personal information submitted to us will be shared with or sold to any other company or individual for marketing purposes without prior authorization. We may provide certain information to our employees and trusted business counterparts but will do so solely in the course of performing services you have requested. We may also provide aggregate statistics to reputable parties about the visitors to our Site or users of the Software, but these statistics will not include any personal or private information that identifies you. Apptree, Inc. or its affiliates or representatives may also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal processes served on Apptree, Inc; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Apptree, Inc.; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees, users of our products or services or members of the public.

Ongoing Communications

Our Site and Services may provide you with the opportunity to elect to receive future communications about Apptree, Inc. products, services or employment opportunities. If you authorize these communications, we will contact you periodically with such information. However, if you later change your mind and would like to stop receiving such communications, please contact us at the address listed below and let us know that you would like to be removed from all further communications.

External Considerations

Our Site or Software may include links to other internet sites or other third-party applications or systems as a convenience to Site visitors and Software users. The inclusion of any link, or third-party applications or materials, does not imply our endorsement of any other company, its products, services, or privacy practices. Furthermore, neither Apptree, Inc., its affiliates nor its representatives are responsible for personal information voluntarily disclosed by you to third parties that you reach through links on our Site or Software.

Security

When you visit our Site, use our Software, submit information online or e-mail a communication to us, your data passes through a server maintained or used by Apptree, Inc., its affiliates, or representatives. The technology used in this process is designed to prevent someone other than Apptree, Inc., its affiliates, or representatives from viewing and downloading your information. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, Apptree, Inc. cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to our Site or through our Software over the internet. We do our best, however, to ensure the security of all information that passes through our server.

We reserve the right to update it periodically to reflect changes in our privacy practices, without prior notice to you. When making updates to our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised version behind the link marked “Privacy Policy” on the Site.
