Privacy Policy

Audio Pro Network Inc. (“APN”) is committed to respecting the privacy and security of your personal information.  This Privacy Policy describes the information collected on this site and how it is used and protected.  This Privacy Policy applies only to this site and any APN mobile application (collectively, the “Site”).

By using the Site, or by providing your information to us or to our service providers, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the APN Terms of Use for the Site, and any written agreement(s) executed and in effect in connection with any of our products or services (collectively, the “Service Agreement”).

What Information is Collected by APN or its Service Providers and When

The information we receive and how we use it depends on what you do when visiting the Site.  The Site and related services require registration for access.  As part of registration and related services, we ask you to provide us certain information about you.  You may provide us and our service providers personal information using the Site in a number of ways, for example by entering that information into data fields on the Site, posting information on or messaging through the Site, connecting social media accounts to the Site, or in communications with us using the contact information at the end of this Privacy Policy or in the Terms of Use.  Personal information includes data that specifically identifies you, such as your name, email address, photographs, social media information, payment information and certain demographic information.  Public information is that information that you make publicly available through your profile or by posting or otherwise communicating on the Site.

We collect information about the people and groups you are connected to and how you interact with them, such as the people you communicate with the most or the groups you like to share with.

If you use the Site for purchases or financial transactions (like when you buy sponsorships or advertising), we collect information about the purchase or transaction. Payment information, such as your credit or debit card number and other card information, and other account and authentication information, is collected and processed by a third party payment processor.

APN and its service providers also collect certain non-personal information, data that does not identify you as an individual person.  This information tells us about how people use the site so that we can analyze its effectiveness and provide you with a better web experience.  We collect and use this information through a variety of technologies, including “cookies” and analysis applications, as discussed below.

Server Information

Like every website, APN’s servers automatically and temporarily store the following information in the server log files. This information is provided by your browser, unless you have deactivated the function.

  • IP address of the enquiring computer
  • File query by the client
  • The http response code
  • The Internet page from which you visited us (referrer URL)
  • The time of the server query
  • The browser type and version
  • The operating system used on the enquiring computer.

The server log files are not analysed with respect to individuals. At no time can this data be attributed to specific individuals. The data are not pooled with other data sources.

Site Visit Tracking Technologies

As is standard practice on many websites, the Site may use “cookies” and other technologies to help APN understand which parts of the Site are the most popular and the preferences of APN users. APN may also use cookies and other technologies to study traffic patterns on the Site, to improve its functionality and usability as well as to improve the effectiveness of APN’s communications with its users. APN may also use cookies to customize your experience and provide greater convenience to you during your interactions with the Site.

A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus and thus pose no threat to you. Servers and sites other than the one placing the cookie on your hard drive cannot read the cookie, and no personal information can be gathered by other servers from the cookie. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings.  Please note that certain features of the Site may not be available once cookies have been disabled.

Like most websites, the Site gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, operating system, internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, date/time stamp of access, and clickstream data.  When you visit the Site, the servers automatically log your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, and the time and duration spent on the pages of the Site which you view. If you arrive at the Site by clicking a paid advertisement or a link in a communication, then the server will capture information that tracks your visit from that link. If you arrive at the Site by clicking on a non-paid source, such as a search engine result or link on another website, the server may capture information that tracks your visit from that source, to the extent available.

Pixel tags and web beacons may be used as part of APN’s use of third party site statistics trackers and analyzers, such as Google Analytics, which APN employs to track and analyze the data collected from the Site.

Use of Information

APN and its service providers may use your personal information to provide our products and services and to contact you in response to inquiries you submit.  APN and its service providers retain and use your information for as long as needed to provide you services, respond to questions or input, comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.  APN reserves certain rights with respect to information provided through the Site, and requires certain representations about such information, as described in the Terms of Use posted on the Site.

When APN Discloses Your Information
When you post or otherwise communicate using the Site, the audience can see what you share. Public information is any information you share with a public audience, as well as information in your public profile, or content you share on another public forum.  Public information is available to anyone on the logged in areas of the Site.

When you use third-party apps, websites or other services that use, or are integrated with, the Site, they may receive information about what you post or share. In addition, when you download or use such third-party services, they can access your public profile as well as any information that you share with them. Information collected by these apps, websites or integrated services is subject to their own terms and policies.

APN and its service providers may transfer information between them for business purposes.  For example, APN service providers may handle technical support, payment processing, marketing, advertising delivery and tracking, or information analysis.  We furnish our service providers the information they need to perform these and other services, and we work with our service providers to respect and protect your information.  We may also provide your information to APN affiliates.  The entities with which we share information may be located in the United States or other countries.

In the event that APN or some of our assets are sold or transferred or used as security, or to the extent we engage in business negotiations with our business partners, the information collected on the Site may be transferred or shared with third parties as part of that transaction or negotiation.  We may also provide information or provide access to information to any of our affiliated businesses or to our business partners.

On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information without your consent and without notice to you as required to comply with laws and regulations, or to comply with court orders, subpoenas, or lawful discovery requests.  Information collected from you may also be used to investigate security breaches or otherwise cooperate with authorities.  We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation.

How APN Protects Your Personal Information

APN has implemented reasonable physical, technical, and organizational safeguards to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, acquisition, or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.  Although we strive to keep your personal information secure, no safeguards can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so you should exercise caution when transferring personal and other sensitive information over the Internet.  Please advise us immediately at the address listed below of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information that is in our custody or control.

Links to Other Websites

The site may contain links to other sites, content, or resources, including links to other sites operated by third parties.  Please note that when you click on one of these links, you will leave the Site and will be subject to the policies and privacy practices of the other site, which may differ significantly.  You should review the policies of other sites you visit.  APN is not responsible for the content, technology, security, or practices of linked sites operated by others, or for your use of linked sites.

Children’s Privacy

The Site is not aimed at or intended for children.  We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of thirteen through the Site.  If we obtain actual knowledge that we have inadvertently collected personal information relating to a child under the age of thirteen, we will delete that information from our records.

International Transfers

The Site is hosted and maintained in the United States.  If you are visiting the Site from a country other than the United States, you should understand that your data submitted through or generated by your use of the Site will be transferred to and processed under the laws of the United States, which may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you are located.  This will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries.  By visiting the Site and communicating electronically with us, you consent to the transfer and processing of your data as set out in this Privacy Policy in the United States subject to the laws of the United States.  If you do not consent to having your information used in according with this Privacy Policy, you should not provide your personal information and should disable all cookies and other technologies as described above under “Collection and Use of Information.”

Review, Modify, or Opt Out

You may change or delete your public profile information on the Site at any time by logging in with your user id and password and making changes using the edit features of the public profile page.  If you would like to opt out of communications from us, please submit a request using the information at the end of this Privacy Policy.

If you request that your registration information be deleted or if you unsubscribe from communications, we may maintain information about your transactions or service inquiries for future service and recordkeeping purposes.  In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may severely limit our ability to provide you information, products, or services.  In some circumstances we may not agree with your request to change your personal information and will instead append an alternative text to the record in question.

Updates to this Privacy Policy

APN may update this Privacy Policy and our site to reflect material changes in how we collect, use, share, or store your information, to satisfy legal requirements, or for other business purposes.  You should review this Privacy Policy when you visit the site to understand our current practices. Where possible, we shall endeavor to provide you with thirty (30) days advance notice of any material changes to this Privacy Policy.  The date below shows when this Privacy Policy was last updated.

We encourage you to refer to this Privacy Policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current practices.  You consent to any changes we make to this Privacy Policy if you continue to use the site after receiving a notice of the change or upon our posting of the new Privacy Policy on the Site.

Interpretation of this Privacy Policy

Any interpretation associated with this Privacy Policy will be made by APN’s legal counsel.  This Privacy Policy includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples, therefore where the word ‘including’ is used, it means “including without limitation.”

This Privacy Policy does not create or confer upon any individual any rights, or impose upon APN any rights or obligations outside of, or in addition to, any rights or obligations imposed by applicable country, state, and other privacy laws, as applicable.  Should there be, in a specific case, any inconsistency between this Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws, this Privacy Policy shall be interpreted in that case to give effect to, and comply with, such privacy laws.
