Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy interests and operate this Site by these principles. We have taken reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that you may provide.

Voluntary Submission of Information
You may use the site without disclosing personally identifiable information, and we will not obtain such information about you unless you choose to submit it to us. Any information you submit will be used to create a better experience for visitors to our site and for internal marketing purposes; it will not be provided to third parties. Submission of information authorizes such internal use by APCO and its employees.

Cookies
Please note we use "cookies," which are small files stored on your computer's hard drive that are used to track certain information. These cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. For example, cookies usually allow your browser to remember which pages you have visited and help us to know how much traffic our pages receive. This process does not reveal any personal information about the person viewing the page unless the person has previously given such information. If you find cookies objectionable, please consult your browser's documentation for information on how to block or erase cookies.

Log Files
In addition, the APCO web server collects and saves the information customarily logged by World Wide Web server software. Our logs contain the following information for each request: date, time, originating IP address and domain name, object requested and completion status of the request. We use these logs to help improve our service by evaluating the level of demand for our site and the types of errors that occur. These logs may be kept for an indefinite length of time, used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the data on our servers.

Use of Collected Information
Any information we gather, whether submitted voluntarily or collected automatically, will be used for our internal purposes only. It is APCO's policy not to disclose or to sell any information to third parties. Notwithstanding this policy, APCO retains the right to disclose collected information if required to do so by law or if acting on a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property or to respond to an emergency situation.

Review, Update and Deletion of Collected Information
If you are concerned about the information you have provided to us or would like to review, update, or delete this information, please e-mail us at webadmin@apcoworldwide.com. We will make reasonable efforts to comply with your requests.

Security
This site takes reasonable precautions to protect our users' information. Our web and database servers operate in a locked facility; data is stored in a secure database behind a firewall. Please note, however, that electronic transmissions via the Internet are not necessarily secure from interception, and APCO does not guarantee the security or confidentiality of transmissions. APCO reserves the right to update or otherwise alter its security practices if and when it seems appropriate to do so. As with our Terms and Conditions, you should check our security provisions each time you visit our site to identify and understand any changes made since your previous visit.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement so that users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we disclose it. Changes to the privacy policy will be dated and will be effective from the date specified forward. As with our Terms and Conditions, you should check our Privacy Policy each time you visit our site to identify and understand any changes made since your previous visit.
