Privacy Policy

AP SAC (“AP SAC”) operates www.apsacs.org/ and may operate other websites. It is AP SAC’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, AP SAC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AP SAC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AP SAC’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AP SAC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

AP SAC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.apsacs.org/ blogs/sites. AP SAC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to AP SAC’s websites choose to interact with AP SAC in ways that require AP SAC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AP SAC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.apsacs.org/ to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with AP SAC are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, AP SAC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AP SAC. AP SAC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

AP SAC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. AP SAC may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AP SAC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AP SAC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AP SAC’s behalf or to provide services available at AP SAC’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AP SAC’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AP SAC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AP SAC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AP SAC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AP SAC, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an AP SAC website and have supplied your email address, AP SAC may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AP SAC and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AP SAC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. AP SAC uses cookies to help AP SAC identify and track visitors, their usage of AP SAC website, and their website access preferences. AP SAC visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using AP SAC’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of AP SAC’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If AP SAC, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that AP SAC goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of AP SAC may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by AP SAC and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Promise Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, AP SAC may change its Privacy Promise from time to time, and in AP SAC’s sole discretion. AP SAC encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Promise. If you have a www.apsacs.org/ account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Promise will constitute your acceptance of such change.
