Effective date: April 23, 2015.
Please read this policy carefully!
What information do we collect, and why do we collect it?
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”)
We may require you to provide us with “personally identifiable information” (“PII”), such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, and shipping address. This PII could include things like your name and address. We may also collect “non-personally identifiable information” (“Non-PII”), which is data that cannot be directly linked to you.
We obtain PII when you provide it to us through your use of APSMEN Digital Solutions.com (e.g. when you create an account, buy a product or service, sign up for our email newsletter, sign up for our webinars or demos, participate in conference calls or events, or call our sales and support staff and provide any personally identifiable information over the phone to an employee or contractor of APSMEN Digital Solutions).
We can also combine your PII with data from third parties (such as signing up for or linking to a Google or Facebook account or adding third-party information). While we would not intentionally collect or obtain data about our customers in an unethical manner, we will not be held liable if we inadvertently obtain data from a third-party source that was gathered illegally. However, if we learn that any third-party PII was collected illicitly, we will discontinue using that information and take steps to prevent it from occurring again. Please get in touch with us at
Finally, we will not collect your PII if you do not provide us with express or implied authorization to do so first. For more information regarding the differences between express vs. implied consent, see the article PII versus express and implied consent. implied consent, visit this website provided by the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) enforcement agency: www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/internet/infograph.htm.
Should you decide we do not wish to send your PII, please contact us at https://www.apsmen.com/contact-us/. We will also attempt to comply with customer Do Not Track (DNT) requests submitted through their web browsers pursuant to California’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (CalOPPA). You can view the list of available DNT protocols within your web browser.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”)
As we have mentioned, Non-PII is data that cannot be directly related to you. We automatically collect certain Non-PII when you use our service. For example, we may collect information about your devices (such as the computer’s IP address or mobile device identification number) and how you use APSMEN Digital Solutions services (such as when you visit our website). Our advertisers and ad services may also collect information outside of APSMEN Digital Solutions services to evaluate the effectiveness of our digital marketing campaigns. We use the Non-PII that we collect for several purposes, like providing and improving user experience and services and evaluating and improving advertising to provide the most relevant messages to our current and future customers.
Why Do We Collect Your PII and Non-PII?
We send the PII we collect to our company for various uses, including developing, evaluating, improving, and marketing our services and products. You can sign up for our email list (“opt-in”) to receive periodic emails about a wide variety of topics including, but not limited to: events, new content, product updates, blog articles, company updates, employment opportunities, and more.
We share email information with Mailchimp to help them target our marketing emails more effectively to our customers. At the same time, Mailchimp has access to email addresses and activity and may share bulk/non-specific activity data (e.g., Non-PII (non-personally identifiable information) is never shared with third parties. Should a customer choose to “opt-out” of these emails, he or she will not receive future marketing emails and will be immediately removed from all mailing lists.

In addition to Google Analytics, we use several data collection and analytics platforms and tools to help us decide what should appear on our websites, our content, our offers, and our advertising.

To other reputable companies, we may reveal your name and mailing address (but not your email address or credit card information), so they can send you information that is of interest to you;
We believe disclosure is necessary to enforce existing law, legal procedure, or government law.
If we become involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, partial or total sale of assets, or other corporate change, then we will be subcontractors.
