Each individual or entity that engages with Austin Sigma’s Sites or Apps (each, a “Customer”) expressly agrees to the practices described in this Policy by virtue of such engagement, and agrees that such Customer has read and understood this Policy. In the event that a Customer disagrees with this Policy, such Customer should cease all use of the Sites and the Apps.

This Policy does not apply to websites or mobile applications that display or link to different privacy statements. Websites and applications co-branded with other partners may display or link to a joint privacy statement or separate privacy statements of Austin Sigma’s partners in addition to this Policy.

Austin Sigma may automatically collect Site and App usage information (collectively, the “Usage Information”). The Usage Information may include information about the Customer, including: Internet service provider, operating system, browser type, domain name, Internet protocol (IP) address, access times, websites that referred the Customer to Austin Sigma, webpages requested and the date and time of those requests, and data requests through the Apps and the date, time, and volume of such requests. The collection of the Usage Information may involve the use of cookies, web beacons, and other unique identifiers used to track the Customer. In addition, the Sites and the Apps may use targeting cookies, and/or in-App analytics, to see which features are popular and to analyze the way in which features are used by all Customers.

Austin Sigma may use web beacons (electronic images) or local shared objects (Flash cookies) on the Sites or in the Apps to deliver cookies, count visits, understand Customer usage, and to recognize whether a function of an App has been used. Personal information cannot be collected via cookies and other tracking technology; however, Usage Information can be tied to a Customer’s cookies or the Customer’s local copy of an App.

The Customer may choose to remove or reject cookies from the Sites, but doing so will affect many features or services on the Sites. The Customer may not disable tracking or analytical functions that are embedded in the Apps. Austin Sigma may also collect aggregated data or anonymized data that does not personally identify the Customer. Austin Sigma may combine information collected about the Customer with information collected about other users of the Sites and/or Apps.

Austin Sigma does not access or store the contents of any of Customer’s emails, text messages, notes, or other communications between Customer and third parties that are processed by the Apps.

How Does Austin Sigma Use Information About the Customer?

Austin Sigma may use information about the Customer for purposes described in this Policy, or disclosed on the Sites or during the Apps. For example, Austin Sigma may use information about the Customer to:

  • Process and manage the Customer’s purchase and use of the Apps;

  • Communicate with the Customer about the Austin Sigma brands, products, events or other promotional purposes, including co-branded offers and affiliate and partner offers.

The Customer agrees that Austin Sigma may use the information about the Customer collected in accordance with this Policy in its sole discretion. No compensation will be paid to the Customer or any other person as a result of Austin Sigma use of such information. The Customer waives any right to inspect or approve the information or Austin Sigma’s use of such information, whether the collection of information or the manner in which such information was or is to be used was known or unknown to the Customer. The Customer releases Austin Sigma from all claims, demands and liabilities whatsoever in connection with or related to personal information collected under this Policy.

Austin Sigma stores Customer’s account information (including usernames, passwords, and other setup data) on Austin Sigma’s systems in encrypted format, and such information can only be unencrypted by using Customer’s encryption key. Customer controls the access to such key, and without such key Austin Sigma cannot access or provide lost passwords, lost usernames, or other account information of Customer.

  • Sharing personal information about the Customer with others with the Customer’s consent;

How is Personal Information Secured?

Austin Sigma takes reasonable steps to maintain appropriate physical, technical and administrative security to help prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of Customers’ personal information. Most of Customer’s personal information is stored in encrypted format, and can only be accessed by Customer through the Apps (and cannot be accessed by Austin Sigma directly).

While we take these reasonable efforts to safeguard personal information, no system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
