Privacy Policy
Sunday, 11 October 2009 14:03
At AlphiMAX we recognize that privacy is important. This Privacy Policy applies to all of the products, services and websites offered by AlphiMAX Inc. In addition, where more detailed information is needed to explain our privacy practices, we will post supplementary privacy notices to describe how particular services process personal information. “Personal information” is information that you provide to us which personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information.

Information we collect and how we use it

In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:

  • Information you provide – When you sign up for an AlphiMAX account, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address, company name and an account password). This account information will be used to authenticate you when you access AlphiMAX services and protect your account from unauthorized access by others or provide you with access to your account activity and history. We may share personal information among our affiliated partners. For certain services, we also request credit card or other payment account information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers.
  • Log information – When you access AlphiMAX services, our servers don’t record information that your browser sends whenever you visit our website.
  • User communications – When you send email or other communications to AlphiMAX, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.

AlphiMAX only processes personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and/or the supplementary privacy notices for specific services. In addition to the above, such purposes include:

  • Providing our services, including the display of customized content and advertising;
  • Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services;
  • Ensuring the technical functioning of our network;
  • Protecting the rights or property of AlphiMAX or our users; and
  • Developing new services.

AlphiMAX processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America and may do so in other countries. In some cases, we process personal information on a server outside your own country. We may process personal information to provide our own services. In some cases, we may process personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as our advertising partners.

Choices for personal information

When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the specific service privacy notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We will not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the supplementary service privacy notices, unless we have obtained your prior consent.

You can decline to submit personal information to any of our services, in which case AlphiMAX may not be able to provide those services to you.

Information sharing

If AlphiMAX becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions and provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who chosen a specific product, for example, or how many users clicked on a particular advertisement. Such information does not identify you individually.

Information security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to AlphiMAX employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. Regardless, we will post any Privacy Policy changes on our web site and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Privacy Policy changes).
