This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to: (i) the website located at theavocagroup.com and any other websites/applications owned and operated by The Avoca Group, Inc., or its affiliates (the “Company”) that direct the viewer or user to this Policy; and (ii) any documents that direct the viewer or user to this Policy. This Policy explains how the Company collects and uses information. By using the Company’s website and/or other web or cloud based services you agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, do not visit the Company’s website or submit any personal information to the Company.

We reserve the right to modify or amend this Policy at any time by posting the updated version on our website and changing the date listed at the top of this Policy.

Collection of Personal Information:

The Company intends to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. In general, you can visit us on the web without directly telling us who you are. However, in order to use certain services offered by us, there are times when we may need personal information from you.

“Personal Information” is information that identifies or could be used to identify you and that is either collected by our website automatically or is otherwise submitted to us by you. We collect information you voluntarily give to us such as your first and last name, e-mail address, company name, physical address, telephone number, username, password, data or any other information you choose to give to us when you set up an account, participate in a survey, submit content or feedback, sign up to receive information about the Company, or otherwise provide information to us. When you contact us online, we may keep a record of that correspondence. When you use our services we may also collect information about the services you use and how you use them.

We are also provided with information automatically when you use a computer, tablet, smart phone or other device to interact with us. We may collect information about the device and how you use it. This may include information about the type of device you are using, your operating system, your browser, your internet service provider, your domain name, your internet protocol (IP) address, and the date and time that you accessed our systems. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends and statistics.

There are various technologies, including “cookies” and “pixel tags”, that can be used to provide you with tailored information from a website. A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. A pixel tag is a type of technology placed on a website or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites, or when emails are opened or accessed, and is often used in combination with cookies. Some of our pages may use these technologies or other technologies so that we can better serve you when you return to our site.

By completely disabling cookies, you may not be able to access some or all of the features we offer.

 

How We Protect Your Information:

We intend to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We have implemented appropriate technical and managerial procedures to maintain information that is accurate, current, and complete. However, unfortunately no data transmission over the Internet or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
