Privacy Policy

 

Effective November 1, 2016

 

This Online and Mobile Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how Propel Ahead Technologies, Inc. (“we,” “us,” or “PropHead”) collects, uses and discloses information. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you, as an individual user, use or access the PropHead mobile application and website (collectively, the “Software”) or when you otherwise interact with us. If you use the Software as part of an entity or organization that has an agreement with PropHead (like your employer or other organization), the terms of that organization’s agreement for the Software may restrict our collection or use of your information in addition to what is described in this Privacy Policy.

 

We respect the privacy rights of our users and recognize the importance of protecting information collected about you. By using our Software, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Software. Your continued use of our Software will signify your acceptance of this Privacy Policy.

 

If you are using the Software pursuant to an agreement or customer order your business or organization has with us, then this Privacy Policy is integrated into and is a part of that agreement. In the event of any inconsistency between this Privacy Policy and your agreement, your agreement and customer order governs your relationship with us. Capitalized terms that are not otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning attributed to them in our Customer Agreement.

 

1.  Information We Collect And Use

 

1.1 Personal Information

 

The term “Personal Information” as used in this Privacy Policy refers to information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact an individual, including your name, username, email address, picture, postal address, phone number, employer’s name, job title, transactional information (including Software purchased or subscribed to and billing address), as well as any contact or other information you choose to provide. When you access the Software from a mobile device, we also collect information about the device, including location, hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers, applications installed on the device, and mobile network information (as allowed by your mobile network) or platform information (as allowed by the specific platform type). It also includes other information that may be associated with Personal Information, such as an internet protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, internet service provider, operating system, and device type. Personal Information does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous such that it can no longer be reasonably associated with a specific person.

 

Generally, we collect Personal Information when you provide it directly to us and through Software technology known as “cookies,” as further described in Section 4 below. The types of information we collect, and our use of that information is further described below.

 

1.2 Information We Collect From Registered Users

 

In order to gain full access to the Software, you must first register as a subscriber of the Software or be be granted permission to access the content of the entity that has ordered service from PropHead, as further described in the applicable Customer Agreement. We may collect certain types of information about you from the owner or administrator that is granting you access, including when you: (i) register with PropHead for an account, (ii) create or modify your profile or online account, (iii)  access and use our Software, (iv) participate in any interactive features of the Software, (v) participate in a survey, contest, promotion, sweepstakes, activity or event, and (vi) make a purchase, request customer support, communicate with us via third-party social media sites or otherwise communicate with us.

 (i) Identify and authenticate your account when you log in to the Software;

 

 (ii) Provide the products and services you have requested;

 

 (iii) Contact you about your use of the Software and to provide notifications about the    Software; and

 

 (iv)  Improve our Software.

 

Once you begin using the Software through your PropHead account, you will have the opportunity to include additional information in your account information, such as biographical and contact information. The use of any additional information you provide will be consistent with our use of any Personal Information you provide during your account registration process.

 

1.3 Information We Collect From Visitors

 

You are not required to register with the Software or provide any Personal Information to us to simply visit and browse our online or mobile Softwares. However, we may gather non-personal information about your visit solely for the purposes of monitoring and improving the Software.

 

2.  Security

 

Although no data transmission can be guaranteed to be completely secure, PropHead maintains strict physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your Personal Information. These safeguards are reasonably designed to:

 

 (i) Insure the security and confidentiality of User records and information;

 

 (ii) Protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of User    records and information; and

 

 (iii) Protect against unauthorized access to or use of User records or information that could    result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any User.

 

Your information is located on secure servers and encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We use transport layer security (TLS) when you sign into the PropHead Software.

 

3.  Information We Disclose

 

We will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties except to:

 

 (i) Affiliated companies (e.g., subsidiaries and other companies owned by or controlled by PropHead) who may only use the Personal Information for the purposes described in Section 1.2 above.

 

 (ii) Our trusted service providers that are integral to the operation of the Software and help us to provide services to you, including but not limited to payment processors, verification service providers, and other third parties that you may directly authorize to receive your Personal Information. Our service providers are bound by law or contract to protect your Personal Information and are only allowed to use your Personal Information in accordance with our service agreements with them.

 

 (iii) Effect a merger or acquisition or to support the sale or transfer of business assets. If PropHead is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or prominent notice on our Software of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.

 

 (iv) Enforce our rights or protect our property; protect the rights, property or safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; or as needed to support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions. We may also disclose Personal Information to defend ourselves in litigation or a regulatory action, and when required or advised to do so by law, such as in response to a subpoena, or similar legal process, including to law enforcement agencies, regulators, and courts in the United States and other countries where we operate.

 

4.  Cookies, Pixel Tags and Web Beacons

 

When you use our Software, we may collect certain information by automated or electronic means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags and web beacons, browser analysis tools, and web server logs. As you use the Software, your browser and devices communicate with servers managed by our business partners, our Software providers or us to record the interactivity and to fulfill your requests for Software and information.

 

The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on your computers or devices, which are then transmitted back to our Software by your computers or devices. The cookies are managed by our business partners, our service providers, or us. For example, when you visit our Software, PropHead and our service providers may place cookies on your computers or devices. They also help us to detect certain kinds of fraud. A “cookie” is a small amount of information that a web server sends to your browser that stores information about your account, your preferences, and your use of the Software. Some cookies contain serial numbers that allow us to connect your Software activity with other information we store about you in your profile or as related to your interactions with the Software.

 

Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. “Session" cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases session cookies once you exit your browser. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your computers or mobile devices even beyond when you exit your browser. We use persistent cookies for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (such as your user id if you asked to be remembered), and storing your preferences (e.g., the way Software pages or information is displayed).

 

Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on Software pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions. When you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action to our service providers or us. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our Software and Software.

 

We collect many different types of information from cookies and other technologies. For example, we may collect information from the devices you use to access our Software, your operating system type or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device. Browsers routinely send these types of information to web servers. Our server logs also record the IP addresses of the devices you use to interact with the Software. An IP address is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. We may also collect information about the Software you were visiting before you came to our Software and the Software you visit after you leave our Software, if this information is supplied to us by your browser.

 

In many cases the information we collect using cookies and other tools is used in non-identifiable ways and without any reference to Personal Information. For example, we use information we collect about Users to optimize our Software and understand its traffic and usage patterns. In other cases, we associate the information we collect using cookies and related technologies with Personal Information. In that case, this Privacy Statement governs how we use that information.

 

Additionally, if the settings on your location-aware device allow us to receive location information, we may collect that automatically. If we associate location information with other Personal Information, this Privacy Policy will govern how we would use that information.

 

PropHead sets and accesses our own cookies on our company-owned domains. We may use Google Analytics to track website and Software analytics. If you wish to opt out of having cookies set on your browser or device as described above, you may manage the settings on your web browser to delete all cookies and disallow further acceptance of cookies. If you would like to opt out of third party tracking via Google Analytics, please visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Please note that disabling cookies may disable many of the features available through our Software. We therefore recommend that you leave cookies enabled. Because there is no industry standard, PropHead does not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals.

 

5. Collaboration and Sharing

 

Our Software may offer certain features or tools that allow you to share your Content using our Software. Based on the permissions and settings you choose, the use of such features may enable the sharing of Content with people you want to collaborate with or with the general public. You can choose to change your settings at any time through your account. For more information about such sharing features, we encourage you to review the information provided on our website.

 

6. Choice and Opt Out

 

We may you with the opportunity to opt out of having your Personal Information used for certain purposes when we ask for this information; however, this may limit your ability to fully use our Software. You may update your personal and security preferences by signing in to the Software with your PropHead account. You may also opt out of email and promotional communications by following the instructions included in each such communication or by emailing us as info@propheaded.com.

 

7. Changes

 

We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically to check for updates. If any changes are material, we may provide additional notice and/or an opportunity for you to opt-in as appropriate under the circumstances as further described below.

 

PropHead will provide you with disclosures and alerts regarding this Privacy Policy by posting them on our Software, by emailing the email address listed in your PropHead account, and/or by mailing to the physical address listed in your PropHead account (only if you have provided us with a mailing address). You agree that electronic disclosures and notices have the same meaning and effect as if we had provided you with a paper copy. Such disclosures and notices in relation to this Privacy Policy are deemed received by you within 24 hours of the time they are posted to our Software or emailed to you (unless we receive notice that the email was not delivered).
