APD collects, at time of your registration and your sign-on to its web site, certain “personal information” (information that personally identifies you) such as your name, email address, home or work address, telephone number, and your computer hardware and software (e.g. IP address, operating system, browser type, domain name, URL, access times, and referring web site addresses), a listing of which can be found by clicking here.
APD collects and uses personal information for the following Identified Purposes:
APD also uses personal information in an aggregate form (i.e. not individually attributable to you) for its business analysis, operational, marketing and other promotional purposes.
If we hire other companies to provide some products or services on our behalf, then we will only provide those companies the personal information they need for the Identified Purposes.
A customer may withdraw such consent for collection, use and disclosure at any time, on prior written notice, provided that APD may on such withdrawal suspend or terminate its products and services.
APD limits its collection of personal information to only that information which is necessary for the Identified Purposes. APD does not knowingly collect personal information from children.
APD does not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to anyone else except, when the Identified Purposes require APD to disclose the personal information to:

After your account becomes inactive, APD will keep your personal information only for those purposes which are established by law, and for archival record purposes.
APD will use reasonable efforts to keep customer personal information accurate for the Identified Purposes, and for minimizing the possibility of making inappropriate customer decisions based on such information. Customers are responsible for informing APD about changes to their personal information. APD will update personal information when necessary to keep it accurate or else provide customers the facility to make such updates.
APD will use reasonable efforts to protect personal information against loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, misuse or modification, through security safeguards that depend on the level of sensitivity of the information. Methods of protection include organizational measures (contract provisions, security clearance, limiting access to need-to-know APD personnel), technological measures (passwords, encryption), and physical measures (locked file storage, security card access). APD will control personal information disclosed to authorized third parties by entering into agreements which contain confidentiality provisions and restrictions on use and which limit the amount of information disclosed to only that which is needed for the Identified Purposes.
APD will afford you a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information in your file, in understandable format, either by direct access or upon request to the Privacy Officer made by you after providing sufficient identification.
If APD is not able to provide access to some aspect of a customer’s personal information, it will provide reasons for denying access such as; that by doing so would likely reveal personal information about a third party, or that it is confidential commercial information or attorney–client privileged communications, or that the information relates to a breach of an agreement or a contravention of law, or that its disclosure could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual.
Customers have the right to request that inaccurate or incomplete information be amended as appropriate, and APD will promptly correct such personal information or provide the means for you to do so directly.
