Information We Accumulate
You may provide us with information about yourself, such as your name and e-mail address, when you access the Service. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses.
In the future, if you register with Capiche to access certain additional pages of the Site, we will also ask you to provide us with additional information about yourself. If you register with Capiche on behalf of an organization, we will ask you to provide us with information about your organization.
Your knowledge and consent are required before we collect information about you. Your consent is deemed to have been provided when you click on an appropriate box, tab, or other link; enter information into any form as we may ask you to complete; or complete an agreement, acknowledgement or instruction. The electronic record thereof will be considered conclusive evidence of you having accepted, declined, or otherwise acknowledged such matter, absent manifest error by the Service.
When you visit the Site, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser, enables us to help you log in faster and enhances your navigation through the Site. A cookie does not collect personal information about you. The Service may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you view or sign-up with the Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
When you use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously. No personally identifiable information from your Capiche account is collected using these clear gifs. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting, improve the effectiveness of our marketing and make the Service better for our users.
How We Use Your Information
We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain and provide to you the features and functionality of the Site.
In the future, certain pages of the Site will be available to others who have been authorized to access those web pages on the Site. Such authorization requires information screening and/or identification verification. Only authorized users of the Service may access such web pages.
By providing Capiche with your email address you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You may not opt out of some service-related communications. We may also use your email address to send you other messages, including changes to features of the Site and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out at any time by clicking “Unsubscribe” in any e-mail we send you. If you e-mail us directly, we may e-mail you back and keep records of all of our correspondence. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements or offers.
Capiche may use certain information about you and/or your user content. We do this for such purposes as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing advertisements and promotions.
How We Disclose Your Information
Capiche may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of providing services to you. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Capiche (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Capiche services.
Non-personal information may be collected about your usage of the Site and aggregated with data from other users (“Aggregate Data”). This Aggregate Data is anonymous. Aggregate Data is collected to build higher quality, more useful services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users. We may provide statistical information based on this data to advertisers and other current and potential business partners.
How We Protect Your Information
Capiche uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Capiche and you do so at your own risk. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time; there is no guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Capiche, at all times.
