Information Sharing and Disclosure
Aptania will never use, sell, share, disclose, or rent any internal or customer supplied data to any clients, prospects, or other third parties. Aptania is not an email list rental service. Our clients retain ownership and control of their lists at all times.
Information Collection and Use
Aptania collects information at several different points on our web site in order to better serve client and visitor needs. For each visitor to our web pages, our web server automatically recognizes and collects only the visitor's domain name or IP address, aggregate information on what pages visitors access, information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information or email address related to permission-based subscription to our email alerts, enewsletters, and promotional emails, and logins to access portions of the site related to their Aptania account.
The information we collect is used to create demographic profiles of our subscribers, clients, and visitors so we can improve the content of our web site and email alerts. No information is shared with a third-party or any other organizations for commercial purposes.
In cooperation with our clients, Aptania collects lists of data including personal email addresses with the purpose of delivering permission-based email campaigns to those lists. Aptania hosts these client lists on our servers.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Some of our web pages, and some of our partners and clients, utilize cookies and other tracking technologies, such as a single pixel gif, to record session information. Aptania uses single-pixel gif images to count web page accesses and gather some general statistical information such as if an email has been opened or read. Collected information is tied to the users' personally identifiable information to provide offers and improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user's visit to our web site, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions to them. We do not share your profile with other third parties.
Links to other Web sites
Aptania;apos;s web site, or messages created with Aptania, may contain links to other web sites. Aptania is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other web sites. Third parties may independently collect information about web site visitors when they view ads or other communications from third parties through Aptania products or services. If visitors do not want those companies to collect information about them, they should contact these companies directly.
Confidentiality and Security
Aptania warrants that all customer data remains the property of our customers. We also will not use, rent, sell, transfer, or otherwise expose the contents of the tracking information resulting from click through, message opened, message read, or eCommerce conversions. Aptania provides an SSL encrypted, password-protected mechanism for viewing and extracting customer data. Aptania maintains all customer data in a carrier-class secure facility protected by firewalls and other security devices. These measures are designed to protect visitor and client information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration.
Aptania uses a third party for credit card processing. This intermediary is solely a link in the distribution chain and is not permitted to store, retain, or use the information provided expect for the sole purpose of credit card processing. We restrict access to this information to only those employees who require the information for business purposes.
Unsolicited Commercial Email (SPAM)
