This website as well as other proprietary software websites are administered by Authentic Software. Our websites may contain links to other websites, applications, and services maintained by third parties. The information practices of such other services are governed by the third-party privacy statements, which we encourage you to review to better understand those third parties privacy practices.
The primary purpose of Authentic Software is to be a resource for your business. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site or using our different digital platforms and we are committed to maintaining your privacy. The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.
Information on our site is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of Authentic Software).
We may also collect information about you from other sources, including but not limited to third parties from whom we have purchased Personal Data, and combine this information with Personal Data provided by you. In particular, we collect Personal Data from the following sources:
The Personal Data that we collect directly from you may include the following:
We use common information-gathering tools, such as log files, cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to automatically collect information, which may contain Personal Data, from your computer or mobile device as you navigate our websites or interact with emails we have sent you.
We gather certain information automatically via log files. This collected information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address (or proxy server), device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. This information is used to analyze overall trends, to help us provide and improve our websites, and to guarantee their security and continued proper functioning. We also collect IP addresses from users when they log into the services as part of the Company’s security features. One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access www.authenticsoft.net (and it's affiliates), your Internet address is automatically collected and placed in our Internet access logs.
We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. If we do seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement.
You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by sending us an e-mail at email@example.com
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on Authentic Software. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. We take full measures in maintaining your privacy and creating a valuable resource for you to use. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us.
We also use web beacons on our websites. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of our websites. Such tracking technologies are used to operate and improve our websites and email communications and track the clicking of links or opening of emails. The following sets out how we use different categories of cookies and similar technologies, as well as information on your options for managing the settings for the data collection by these technologies:
These cookies are embedded in all our websites that allow you to easily navigate, see and download information, etc.
These cookies remember information you entered on our website, or choices you made (e.g. clicking a link). We use these cookies to understand which information and/or links are more viewed, which functions are often used, and so on. We use Google Analytics, as well as analytics tools from social media sites (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, etc.) to understand visitors’ behavior on our websites.
While we do not display ads on our websites, we sometimes use targeting cookies for marketing and promotional campaigns to understand how our target markets respond to our messaging. These cookies may track your country of origin, types of device you use, age group, time of the day, duration, etc.
Nothing is more important to us than your right to privacy. You may opt-out of the collection of device and usage data by managing your cookies at the individual browser level. In addition, if you wish to opt-out of targeting cookies, or if you are located in the EU countries, please click here.
Authentic Software and its product websites also use various social media platforms and their tracking mechanisms such as Facebook “like”, Linkedin “Follow”, Twitter “RT”, etc. If you click on our social media pages or links posted on our websites, the third-party social media network may be tracking your information via their tools. If you are logged into your social media account, it is possible that the respective social media network can link your visit to our websites with your social media profile.
Your Personal Data may be collected, transferred to, and stored by us in the United States and by our affiliates in other countries where we operate.
Therefore, your Personal Data may be processed outside the EEA, and in countries that are not subject to an adequate decision by the European Commission and which may not provide for the same level of data protection in the EEA. In this event, we will ensure that such recipient offers an adequate level of protection, for instance by entering into standard contractual clauses for the transfer of data as approved by the European Commission (Art. 46 GDPR), or we will ask you for your prior consent to such international data transfers.
Our websites are not directed at children. We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 16. If you are a parent or guardian and believe your child has provided us with Personal Data without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (for this site you can send email@example.com) we will take steps to delete such Personal Data from our systems.
You have certain rights regarding your Personal Data, subject to local data protection laws. These may include the following rights:
To exercise your rights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (for this site you can send email@example.com). We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month and will contact you if we need additional information from you in order to honor your request. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month, taking into account the complexity and number of requests we receive.
In addition, if you have registered for an account with any of our platforms, you may generally update your user settings, profile, organization’s settings, or event registration by logging into the applicable website with your username and password and editing your settings or profile. To update your billing information, discontinue your account, and/or request the return or deletion of your Personal Data and other information associated with your account, please contact us.
To exercise your rights regarding your Personal Data, or if you have questions regarding this Privacy Statement or our privacy practices please email us at any of the following: firstname.lastname@example.org (for this site you can send email@example.com).
We are committed to working with you to obtain a fair resolution of any complaint or concern about privacy.
