Generally, we collect and maintain three categories of data: a) account information generated when an individual or entity activates our services - which generally includes contact information and payment information (we call this "Customer Information"); b) data provided by our customers about individuals or entities who submitted information for the purpose of receiving information, purchasing a product or service, joining a network of affiliates or distributors, to receive customer or technical support, or any other type of data collection performed by our customers (we call this "Customer Recipient Data"); and c) data about visitors to our Site who may or may not also be our customers.
Although the majority of our customers are businesses, some of the account information submitted to us, and maintained by us, could be used to identify or relate to an individual ("personal data") rather than a business.
What We Do With the Data Collected on Our Site
As explained above, our services are intended for businesses, not individuals. If you have provided your contact information (which may include personal data) to us, we may use such information to contact you for marketing purposes by various means, including regular mail, email or telephone. When you submit your contact information to ApogeeInvent or purchase any ApogeeInvent product or service, you expressly consent to receive marketing communications about all ApogeeInvent's services via direct mail, email (at the email address you provided when you activated your account), telephone (at the number you provided when you activated your account), pre-recorded messages (at the number you provided when you activated your account), text messages (if you provided a wireless telephone number), instant messages or other communications methods. We may also use personal and non-personal (e.g., business-related) data for other purposes, including, but not limited to: 1) providing the services you request; and 2) providing technical support.
In accordance with the applicable terms and conditions set forth in the EUSA, we do not disclose, sell or rent Customer Information or Customer Recipient Data without your prior consent or unless we are required to disclose such information by order or other requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body or applicable law. Such data is available: 1) to you after you sign up for our service offering(s); 2) to ApogeeInvent employees who access and manage this information in connection with our services; and 3) to our service providers for purposes of providing functions or services related to our services and customers' accounts (for example, billing functions). Our data retention policy is described in the EUSA.
We use technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of data used by our system. Also, we provide each customer with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a customer logs in to its account or web portal. No data transmissions over the Internet, however, are guaranteed to be completely secure. While we strive to protect your data from unauthorized use or disclosure, ApogeeINVENT does not warrant or guarantee the security of the data that you provide to us.
