This Policy applies to all Personal Information received by AKAVEIL in any format including electronic, paper or verbal. AKAVEIL will not sell or share this information with third parties in ways other than what is expressly disclosed in this Policy.
Collection of Personal Information
For the purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” means any information that identifies, or could be used by or on behalf of AKAVEIL to identify, an individual. Personal Information does not include information that is encoded or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public Personal Information.
To provide you with the highest level of service, we may ask you to voluntarily provide us with certain Personal Information about yourself. Your Personal Information includes all information that we receive from you when you complete a registration form at the Website, which may include your first and last name, your telephone number, and your email address.
Use / Disclosure of Your Personal Information
We use your Personal Information to provide you with information that you request through the AKAVEIL Website. If you are an AKAVEIL customer, then we use your Personal Information as reasonably necessary to provide you with IT-related support services (“Services”).
If necessary for our provision or facilitation of the Services to you, we will disclose your Personal Information to third party solution providers with whom AKAVEIL maintains a trusted business relationship (“Third Party Providers”). Microsoft® is an example of a Third Party Provider with whom we may share your Personal Information. Each Third Party Provider is required to limit its use of your Personal Information to the purpose for which the information was given to that provider.
On occasion, we may hire third parties to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include removing repetitive information from our customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. These third parties have access to your Personal Information to the extent necessary to permit them to do their jobs, however, they are bound by confidentiality agreements before any information is provided to them, and they are restricted from using the information for other purposes.
We may also disclose your Personal Information if we are required to do so by law or we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process; (2) protect and defend our rights and property; (3) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the AKAVEIL Website or any of the Services; or (4) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public (among other things, this means that if you provide false information or attempt to pose as someone else, information about you may be disclosed as part of any investigation into your actions).
We may also use your Personal Information in the aggregate to determine our customers’ demographics and preferences. In addition, we may use your Personal Information to analyze the use of the AKAVEIL Website to understand and improve our service, or for investing in or developing new services.
Other than as stated in this Policy (or as expressly permitted by you in writing, if applicable), we will not release your Personal Information to unknown or unaffiliated third parties, and we will not cross-reference your Personal Information with that of any other customer or entity.
The Services are operated and./or facilitated by us from the United States, and are not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than that of the United States. Your Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage Third Party Providers, and by using the Services you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of the United States, which may have different data protection rules than those of the United States.
Additional Information Relating To Your Personal Information
AKAVEIL keeps your Personal Information in an encrypted format while on our servers. When we transmit your Personal Information, we do so in a secure fashion. We will take commercially reasonable steps to protect Your Information, however, no security system or mechanism is completely foolproof, and we cannot and do not warrant or guarantee that your Personal Information is 100% free from unauthorized access or viewing.
Also, if all or substantially all of AKAVEIL’s assets are acquired in a sale or assignment, or in connection with similar corporate transactions, your Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets. It is AKAVEIL’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
You will have the option to opt-out of any uses of Your Personal Information that are not reasonably necessary for us to provide or facilitate the Services to you. Should that situation arise, AKAVEIL will provide you with reasonable “opt out” mechanisms to exercise your choice before AKAVEIL discloses any information as described in this paragraph.
Accuracy & Access
AKAVEIL will take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is relevant, accurate, complete and current, to its intended use. We provide individuals with reasonable access to Personal Information that they provided to us, as well as the ability to review and correct such information, if applicable.
To protect your privacy and security, we may also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your Personal Information. To view and change the Personal Information that you directly provided to us, you can also contact AKAVEIL’s privacy officer as indicated below.
Please note, at times we may need to retain some information about you to satisfy our internal business, legal, and/or security obligations. For that reason, some of your Personal Information may remain archived even if you ask us to delete it.
To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of your Personal Information, we utilize physical, technical, and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
Among other things, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data, such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us.
We also use firewalls and restricted access methods to ensure the security of the information we collect. We limit access to your Personal Information and data to those persons in AKAVEIL, or Third Party Providers, that have a specific business purpose for maintaining and processing such information. AKAVEIL’s employees who have been granted physical access to your Personal Information will be made aware of their responsibilities to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of that information and have been provided training and instruction on how to do so.
