Katie Aubrecht, PhD Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices. Please read this privacy statement closely. You accept the terms of this private statement by continuing to use Katie Aubrecht products and services.

Policy

Katie Aubrecht will never sell, rent, barter, trade, distribute or lease personal information to outside parties unless Katie Aubrecht obtains customer permission or disclosure is required by law.

Purpose

Katie Aubrecht uses the information customers provide only to the extent necessary to offer our services to our customers. Katie Aubrecht believes in both minimizing the data that is collected and limiting its use and purpose to only that: 1) for which we have been given permission by customers, 2) as necessary to deliver our services, and 3) as we might be required or permitted for legal, compliance or other lawful purposes.

The only individually identifiable information that Katie Aubrecht collects about you is that which you choose to share with us in registration, such as your name, billing address, email address, phone, usernames and passwords. This information will be closely protected and used for internal purposes only. Katie Aubrecht uses return email addresses to answer the email Katie Aubrecht receives. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Katie Aubrecht will never willfully release your personal information to any third party unless you direct us to do so or disclosure is required by law.

Katie Aubrecht also may collect personal information when you request assistance from our customer support team (e.g., phone number, email address,) and may collect additional information that you choose to share with our customer support team.

Katie Aubrecht also collects information to evaluate aggregate site usage. Katie Aubrecht may automatically collect certain usage information from customers, such as Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, log files, unique device identifiers, pages viewed, browser type, any links you click on to leave or interact with our services and other usage information collected from cookies and other tracking technologies as noted below. For example, we collect IP addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information, such as using IP addresses to monitor the regions from which users navigate to our Services. We also collect IP addresses from users when they log into their Katie Aubrecht databases as part of our log-in process and for enhanced identity authentication and authorization security.

Katie Aubrecht’s services may change over time and we may introduce new features that may collect new or different types of information.

Cookies

There is a technology called “cookies” which can be used to provide tailored information from a web site. A cookie is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. A “cookie” marks and identifies visitors on an Internet site to allow customers to enter customized information and have it available on subsequent visits. Katie Aubrecht pages may use cookies so that Katie Aubrecht can provide a customer with access to information when a customer returns to Katie Aubrecht’ web site.

Although there has been debate over the privacy implications of cookies, it is important for Katie Aubrecht customers to know that cookies do not read your hard drive, nor can cookies be used to reveal new information about you that you have not elected to reveal. Katie Aubrecht may use cookies to log your activity on the site. Everything Katie Aubrecht learns from these logs will be used to enrich our users’ experiences on our site. It will help Katie Aubrecht understand what you like and don’t like, so Katie Aubrecht can focus its energies more effectively and provide you with better service. Please note that your web browser settings may be adjusted to limit or prohibit this and other websites from placing cookies.

Security

Katie Aubrecht is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities.

If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.

Connecting or Linking Your Katie Aubrecht Database with Third Party Services

We work with other companies or developers who provide products and services that you may choose to sync, link or otherwise connect with your Katie Aubrecht database. If you choose to make use of such related products or services, we may exchange that information, including your personal information, information from your database, and information about how you interact with each company’s service or product with one or more third parties. This routine exchange of information is necessary to maintain business operations and to provide the requested services.

Data Retention

In accordance with and as permitted by applicable law and regulations, we will retain your information as long as necessary to serve you, to maintain your account for as long as your account is active, or as otherwise needed to operate our business.

When your account expires or becomes disabled, Katie Aubrecht may retain the data for up to 30 days before it is permanently removed from all of our systems. We will retain information about our customers as required by applicable regulations and to comply with our legal and reporting obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, complete any outstanding transactions and for the detection and prevention of fraud.
