Achlys Privacy Statement

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to Achlys Inc. (“Achlys”). This Privacy Policy covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.

Our Policy

This policy applies to information collected by Achlys as well as by this website. The questions and answers below cover the type of information we collect from you, how we protect your information, how we use your information, and what choices you have about how we use your information.

We reserve the right to modify, alter or otherwise update this policy at any time, so we encourage you to check back periodically so that you are always aware of our most current policies regarding your privacy. The policy date above will change on the date any policy changes are made.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person, and includes such things as name, age, gender, educational background and performance, occupation, contact information, financial information and other information which can be linked to an individual’s identity. It does not apply to the information of non-individuals, such as corporations and other business entities and, generally speaking, to business contact information of individuals.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Achlys or one of its affiliates or resellers. Achlys and its affiliates, suppliers and resellers may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. Achlys and its affiliates, suppliers and resellers may also combine it with other information to provide and improve their products, services, content, and advertising.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information Achlys may collect and how they may use it.

What personal information we collect?

When you create a Achlys Account, subscribe to a service or purchase a product, download a software update, or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, credit card information, financial information, and information collected in providing services, including but not limited to location, vehicle information, and driver information.

How we use your personal information?

The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Achlys’s latest product and product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our products, services, content, and advertising. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.

We may disclose your personal information, including credit card information, to third party suppliers that enable Achlys to provide its products and services, including but not limited to third party billing services.

We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising.

From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Achlys, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Achlys’s products, services, and customer communications.

If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect non-personal information − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.

We also may collect information regarding anonymous or aggregated customer activities on our website and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Cookies and Other Technologies

Achlys’s website, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our website people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers or information collected by cookies are considered personal information by applicable law, we also treat these identifiers or information as personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Achlys and its partners may use cookies and other technologies in mobile advertising services to control the number of times you see a given ad, deliver ads that relate to your interests, and measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns.

Achlys and our partners also use cookies and other technologies to collect and retain your personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Achlys more convenient and personal. Knowing your contact information, product serial numbers, and information about your computer or device helps us register your products, personalize your operating system, and provide you with better customer service.

As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Achlys may use this information in our marketing and advertising services, and to improve Achlys’s products and services.

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Achlys website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Disclosure To Third Parties

At times Achlys may make certain personal information available to third parties that work with Achlys to provide products and services, or that help Achlys market to customers. If you are approved for service, your account will be governed by Achlys and its carrier’s respective privacy policies. Personal information will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes or business purposes unrelated to assisting Achlys in providing you products and services.

Service Providers

Achlys shares personal information with companies who may use such personal information to  provide products and services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Achlys operates.

Other Providers

Achlys will disclose your personal information to government agencies in order to provide Achlys products and services. Achlys may also disclose your information where required by applicable law or legal process, or orders of government agencies with authority to do so.

Achlys may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our rights or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party, who shall remain entitled to collect, use and disclose such personal information in accordance with this privacy policy.

Protection of Personal Information

Achlys takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Achlys online services use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected. To make purchases from these services, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it’s transmitted over the Internet.

When you use some Achlys products, services, or applications or post on an Achlys forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

Achlys makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with Achlys’s internal policies as may be changed from time to time, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Access to Personal Information

You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account at For other personal information, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if Achlys is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.

Achlys websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices.
