Effective Date: June 28, 2011
APP47, INC. PRIVACY STATEMENT
App47, Inc. (“App47,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) has created this privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to you, our user (“You” or “Your”), regarding Your privacy with respect to information that App47 collects through the Site or Services (defined below), whether You are a “Visitor” (which means that You simply browse a Site), a “Subscriber” of App47 (which means You have entered into a separate agreement with App47, with respect to the Services), or You are an employee, contractor or agent of a Subscriber that uses the Services for commercial purposes (a “Business Subscriber User”), using the Site or Services in Your capacity as an employee, contractor or agent of that App47 Subscriber. Visitors, Subscribers and Business Subscriber Users are individually referred to as a “User,” and collectively, as “Users”.
A Subscriber that is a business, organization or an individual that is using the Services for commercial purposes (entities referred to as Business Subscribers in our Terms of Service) may control certain or all aspects of its Business Subscriber User’s Accounts. In order to make this Privacy Statement more readable, we refer to a Business Subscriber as an “Employer” with the understanding that the defined term may not be technically accurate in all cases.
Privacy on www.app47.com, cirrus.app47.com and other sites we operate (each, a “Site”) is of great importance to us. Because we gather important information from our Users of the Site and related services provided by App47 (the “Services”), we have established this Privacy Statement as a means to communicate our information collection, use and dissemination practices. In order to access and use the Site and/or Services, You must agree to our Terms of Service and any other applicable agreement. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Statement will have the meaning ascribed to them in the Terms of Service.
SCOPE OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT
This Privacy Statement describes App47’s use of Personal Information and Anonymous Information (each as defined below) that we collect from Your use of, or access to, the Site and Services, whether You are an individual or a company, as well as information we may use to update the information You provide us through other means. “Personal Information” means contact information (e.g., Your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual. “Usage Data” means data relating to Your use of certain third-party applications on Device(s) that You designated for us to monitor, administer and/or control as part of the Services (“Applications”). A “Device” is a wireless phone, personal digital assistant, tablet or other wireless device containing Applications.
BY USING OUR SITE OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH OUR SITE OR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT AND YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Site and Services to You. We collect Personal Information that You submit to us voluntarily. When You register with us, we require You to provide certain Personal Information, such as Your name and email address. We may request additional optional information to support Your access to the Site or Services. When You communicate with us by sending us an email, we may collect and store any information that is contained in Your communications with us. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the
Site or Services You are able to use. Please note that if You are a Business Subscriber User, we may receive Personal Information about You from Your Employer – specifically, your name and device ID. We also collect certain Personal Information from Subscribers in order to process subscriptions, including credit card numbers and associated billing information, to charge and collect the subscription fees. We refer to this information as “Billing information”.
The contents of Usage Data can include both Personal Information and Anonymous Information, but we treat Usage Data differently regardless of its contents. Usage Data includes a unique user ID for your mobile device, your Device’s operating system and platform, your location (if enabled by the applicable Application) and log information about your Device and usage of the Application(s). For example, we may collect information about when an error message is displayed in the Application or an Employer may request that we collect information about the occurrence of certain transaction(s)/action(s) in the Application. We only collect Usage Data that You have requested we collect relating to Your use of Applications. If You are a Business Subscriber User, then Your Employer may have designated the Applications or authorized our services on Your behalf and will select the Usage Data to be collected. If you are Business Subscriber User and want to know specifically what Usage Data is collected, please contact your IT team. We associate Your Usage Data with Your Personal Information.
USE OF INFORMATION
We will use Your Personal Information to:
- Administer Your Account;
- Provide You with Services and customer support;
- Tailor the features of the Site or Services to You;
- Respond to Your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;
- Improve our products and services
- Communicate with You about the Site and the Services.
We may also use Your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to You (and, if You are an Employer, your company). Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will only use Your Billing Information to process and collect fees. We send administrative emails which pertain to the Site and Services on a regular basis, and You may not opt-out of these emails. If You wish to not receive these emails, You must terminate Your Subscription and cease use of the Services.
We will access and use Your Usage Data to provide You with Services designed to enable You to analyze Your usage of Applications, manage Your performance of Applications and control Your deployment of Applications. If You are a Business Subscriber User, we will not provide You with these Services, but we will provide them to Your Employer with the understanding that your Employer will have access to information about Your usage and Your Device. Your Employer is required to ensure that it accesses and uses information about Your usage and Your Device in accordance with its own policies and procedures.
