Your acceptance of this privacy policy

This Privacy Policy is applicable to all visitors, registered users, and all other users of our Services. By accessing or using the Services, you consent to us collecting, storing, using, and disclosing your information as described in this Privacy Policy. The provisions contained in this Privacy Policy supersede all previous notices and statements regarding our privacy practices with respect to the Services. If you do not agree to all provisions of this Privacy Policy, you may not access or use the Services. We reserve the right to periodically update or modify this Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy or the way we use, share, or collect Personal Information, we will notify you by revising the “Last Updated” at the top of this Privacy Policy, prominently posting an announcement of the changes on our Services, or by sending you a written communication using the contact information you provided us prior to the new policy taking effect.

We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure that you are familiar with our current practices.

Information We Get from You

When you use our Services, we may collect information that you provide to us. Some of this information may identify you (“Personal Information”), and some of this information may not identify you (“Anonymous Information”). Sometimes, Anonymous Information may directly or indirectly be associated or combined with Personal information. In these cases, such Anonymous Information will be considered Personal Information for purposes of this Privacy Policy. In addition, to the extent that Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses or similar identifiers or information are considered personally identifiable information by applicable law, we will treat those items as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

In general, you may visit the Website without telling us who you are or sharing any Personal Information with us. When you register for an account for the Services (an “Account”), use other aspects of the Services, or communicate with us for customer service or technical support for the Services, we may ask you to provide certain Personal Information, as set forth below. You may decline to do so, in which case, some features of the Services may not be available, may be limited in performance, or may not work at all. You may also voluntarily provide Personal Information to us. The information that we collect and use may include the following kinds of Personal Information:

  • Your name
  • Email or login

  • Birth date, birth time, birth place, and current location

AstroGraph uses third parties to collect and process payments--we do not collect or store your credit card information.

Information Collected by Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you access or use the Services, we use Google Analytics to assign random, unique numbers to your Device by placing small data files on your device. These data files enable our Services to work properly by recognizing your Device when you use the Services. These data files may be cookies, pixel tags, other local shared objects, or similar technologies provided by your browser or associated applications (collectively, “Cookies”). Google Analytics generates a Cookie to capture information about your use of the Services. Cookies are used to compile anonymized information about website activity to improve our Services and to provide other related services. Google Analytics may use a portion of your IP address to identify its Cookie.

If you prefer not to receive Cookies through the Services, you may opt out of Google Analytics or control how your browser responds to Cookies by adjusting the privacy and security settings of your web browser. Unless you set your browser settings to refuse all Cookies, our system may issue Cookies when you access or use the Services.

How We Use Information

In general, we use the information we collect to provide you with the best possible Services, and continually improve them over time.

Specifically, we may use Anonymous Information as well as Personal Information as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy to improve our Services, to ensure our Services work properly, and for other research and commercial purposes. These purposes include, among other things, to:

  • create user accounts and/or profiles through registration and import user contacts;
  • provide the Services and notices related thereto;
  • analyze, improve, and customize the Services;
  • provide customer and technical support for the Services;

  • detect, prevent, and investigate actual or suspected fraud, hacking, infringement, or other misconduct involving the Services.

We will comply with legal requests for information when we have a legal obligation to do so, but we cannot provide information we do not have.

How We Share Information

AstroGraph does not sell your Personal Information to third parties, nor do we disclose Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.

We may share Anonymous Information with third parties as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy and to improve our Services and for other commercial purposes.

We take your privacy seriously and may disclose Personal Information only as follows:

TO AUTHORIZED BUSINESS PARTNERS. Authorized Business Partners are third parties whose services AstroGraph uses to operate and improve our own Services. These third parties include agents, contractors, vendors, system integrators, etc. AstroGraph, our affiliates, and our business partners may share this Personal Information with each other and use it, consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, Services, and content.

TO CUSTOMER SUPPORT EMPLOYEES. Authorized customer support employees may access your Personal Information as needed to resolve issues you encounter on our Services and help you use our Services.

We may share information about you for legal, safety, and security reasons. We may share information about you if we reasonably believe that disclosing the information is needed to:

  • comply with any valid legal process, governmental request, or applicable law, rule, or regulation.
  • investigate, remedy, or enforce potential Terms of Service violations.
  • protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or others.
  • detect and resolve any fraud or security concerns.
  • We may share information about you as part of a merger or acquisition. If AstroGraph gets involved in a merger, asset sale, financing, liquidation or bankruptcy, or acquisition of all or some portion of our business to another company, we may share your information with that company before and after the transaction closes.

WE DO NOT SELL PERSONAL INFORMATION

We have never sold your Personal Information, and we will not sell your Personal Information to third parties for their use without your consent.

Links to third-party websites

When you use our Services, you may be directed to other websites and applications that are beyond our control. We may also allow third-party websites or applications to link to the Services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any third parties or the content of linked websites and applications, but we do encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies and terms and conditions of such parties, websites, and applications. This Privacy Policy only applies to our Services.

Social Media Features

Information You Share Socially

Keep in mind that the users who view any content you share (e.g. your profile or your DMs) can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to AstroGraph as well: Don’t share or make public any content that you wouldn’t want someone else to save or share.

How we secure, store, and retain information

Security

We take reasonable technical and organizational precautions to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your Personal Information. We use security measures to help protect your Personal Information against loss, misuse, or unauthorized disclosure, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to us over the internet. We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, but there is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or lost. Therefore, we cannot guarantee absolute security of your Personal Information. You also play a role in protecting your Personal Information. Please safeguard your username and password for your Account and do not share them with others. If we receive from you instructions to use your Account login information, such as when contacting our customer service, we will consider that you have authorized those instructions. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security related to the Services. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse to provide the Services, terminate your Account, and to remove or edit content.

Storage

The Personal Information that you provide to us is generally stored on servers maintained by AWS, or Amazon Web Services. These servers are located in the United States. If you are located in another jurisdiction, you should be aware that once your Personal Information is submitted through our Services, it will be transferred to our servers in the United States and therefore governed by local data protection laws, which can vary state by state.

International users

AstroGraph is headquartered in the United States, but be aware that third party services may be located around the world. If you are using our Services from outside the United States, be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated.

By using our Services, you consent to such transfers of this information. We will protect the privacy and security of Personal Information according to this Privacy Policy, regardless of where it is processed or stored; however, you explicitly acknowledge and consent to the fact that Personal Information stored or processed in the United States will be subject to the laws of the United States, including the legal requests of governments, courts or law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of the United States.

We use email to respond to support inquiries and to share information about our products, services, and promotional offers that we think may interest you. If you prefer not to receive these messages from us, you can unsubscribe at any time. If you need any assistance in unsubscribing from our Services, please let us know by emailing support@astrograph.com.

Security

We, at AstroGraph Software, are committed to providing the safest online environment possible for our customers. Every page of our website is secured by GeoTrust, utilizing the highest level of encryption and security possible.

All credit card transactions are directly processed by Stripe, a world leader in secure online transactions, and never pass through our server. We do not store your payment information on our website. Stripe releases no information from your transactions to third parties.
