Information Collection and Use Information Collection
AdvancePro Technologies is the sole owner of the information collected on
www.AdvanceWare.net. AdvancePro Technologies collects information from our users
at several different points on our Web site.
We request information from the user on our order form. A user must
provide contact information (such as name, email, and
billing/shipping address) and financial information (such as credit
card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing
purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble
processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to
information about the user. [Usage of a cookie is in no way linked
to any personally identifiable information while on our site.] We
use [both] session ID cookies [and] persistent cookies. For the

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes
internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service
provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time
stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site,
track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic
information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to
personally identifiable information.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service
related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily
suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally,
users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can
deactivate their account. However, these communications are not
promotional in nature. [Users may opt-out of these communications.
Please see our Choice and Opt-out section.]
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested
services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply
via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
Legal Disclaimer: Though we make every effort to preserve user
privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required
by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is
necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court
order or legal process served on our Web site.
