We understand that you may have questions about how this Website collects and uses information and we have prepared this statement to inform you of the privacy principles that govern the Website (the “Privacy Policy”). We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information or a list of our customers to third parties. However, as described in more detail in Part C below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy contains numerous general and technical details about the steps we take to respect your privacy concerns. We have organized this Privacy Policy by major processes and areas so that you can quickly link to the information of most interest to you. The bottom line is that meeting your needs and expectations form the foundation of everything we do - including protecting your privacy. Personal information on this Website is collected by ADVSoft and if after reviewing this Privacy Policy you have any questions or privacy concerns please send an e-mail to privacy@advsoft.info.

Changes in Privacy Policy

All personal information, as further described in Part B, that we collect and maintain will be subject to the version of the Privacy Policy in effect at the time of such collection. ADVSoft reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion, and will provide notice of material changes on the home page of the Website. If as the result of such changes, you want to alter the ways in which ADVSoft is allowed to use your personal information, you can do so by following the procedure described in Section Creating, Accessing and Updating Your Personal Preferences. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, and will be subject to, the changes to the Privacy Policy by your continued use of the Website after such notice has been posted for thirty (30) days with the following exception: if at the time you provide personal information to ADVSoft you limit how such information will be used to communicate with you, either by ADVSoft or by third parties, ADVSoft will not change your preference in this regard without your express consent. However, if ADVSoft sells assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity, or ADVSoft (or a division or subsidiary) is acquired by, or merged with, another entity, ADVSoft may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without your consent.

This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your e-mail address, or any other personally identifiable information. When you request a page from our web site, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header, JavaScript or similar technical tools, including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information. We collect such information in order to make our Website function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on this Website, as our servers use this information to deliver to you the pages on this Website. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use our Website and how we can better tune our Website, its contents and functionality to meet your needs.

Information We Collect

As a visitor to this Website, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information as described above in Section Browsing above. In connection with other activities, such as subscribing to the services offered on the Website, utilizing online software applications or purchasing any of the products and services available on the Website, ADVSoft may ask you to voluntarily supply us with certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities and/or make any purchases. If you elect to engage in these activities or make purchases, however, ADVSoft may ask that you provide us personal information, defined as any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including but not limited to your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity or purchase, you will not be able to engage in that activity or make such a purchase.

When you use the Website, ADVSoft or third parties authorized by ADVSoft may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Website and its services. For example, we may log certain variable data, such as browser type, operating system, and the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer. We use such data to facilitate and track your use of the Website and its services. ADVSoft also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Website. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.

When you submit personal information to ADVSoft through this Website, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which ADVSoft and its affiliates and subsidiaries maintain offices . You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transferring, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors of ADVSoft. Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties.

ADVSoft has established relationships with various service providers whose services are available to you from this Website or from Web sites that are linked to this Website. Typically, these providers offer services that ADVSoft customers might find useful, such as those that can be used in conjunction with ADVSoft services and products. In order to use those services, you may be required to provide personal information to the providers. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting a provider's Web site will be subject to the privacy policy posted on such site, and personal information that you provide while on this Website in conjunction with a provider's service will be subject to this Privacy Policy.

In such instances, ADVSoft may use this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Creating, Accessing and Updating Your Personal Preferences

At your choice, you may create a personal account containing information such as your preferred ADVSoft products and interests. Creating a personal account makes it more convenient for you to make purchases by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter personal preference information. It will allow us to inform you about special offers and promotions that may be of interest to you.

You may access and review and update your personal account information on-line. You can access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences at any time by linking to your account at Change subscription (http://www.advsoft.info/en/about/subscr_edit.php), where you can view and make changes to your personal information.

Securing the Transmission and Storage of Information

We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our company’s security procedures and corporate policies regarding protection and use of confidential information. After personally identifiable information reaches ADVSoft it is stored on a server with physical and electronic security features as customary in the industry, including utilization of login/password procedures and electronic firewalls designed to block unauthorized access from outside of ADVSoft. Because laws applicable to personal information vary by country, our offices or other business operations may put in place additional measures that vary depending on the applicable legal requirements.
