Infor­ma­tion we collect

Log data

When you visit our website, our servers may auto­ma­ti­cally log the stan­dard data provided by your web browser. This data is consi­dered “non-iden­ti­fying infor­ma­tion”, as it does not perso­nally iden­tify you on its own. It may include your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version, the pages you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on each page, and other details.

We may also collect data about the device you are using to access our website. This data may include the device type, opera­ting system, unique device iden­ti­fiers, device settings, and geo-loca­tion data. What we collect can depend on the indi­vi­dual settings of your device and soft­ware. We recom­mend checking the poli­cies of your device manu­fac­turer or soft­ware provider to learn what infor­ma­tion they make avail­able to us.

Personal infor­ma­tion

We may ask for personal infor­ma­tion, such as your:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone/mobile number
  • Home/Mailing address
  • Work address

This data is consi­dered “iden­ti­fying infor­ma­tion”, as it can perso­nally iden­tify you. We only request personal infor­ma­tion rele­vant to provi­ding you with a service, and only use it to help provide or improve this service.

How we collect infor­ma­tion

We collect infor­ma­tion by fair and lawful means, with your know­ledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collec­ting it and how it will be used. You are free to refuse our request for this infor­ma­tion, with the under­stan­ding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services without it.

Use of infor­ma­tion

We may use a combi­na­tion of iden­ti­fying and non-iden­ti­fying infor­ma­tion to under­stand who our visi­tors are, how they use our services, and how we may improve their expe­ri­ence of our website in future. We do not disc­lose the speci­fics of this infor­ma­tion publicly, but may share aggre­gated and anony­mized versions of this infor­ma­tion, for example, in website and customer usage trend reports.

We may use your personal details to contact you with updates about our website and services, along with promo­tional content that we believe may be of inte­rest to you. If you wish to opt out of recei­ving promo­tional content, you can follow the “unsub­scribe” inst­ruc­tions provided along­side any promo­tional corre­spon­dence from us.

Data proces­sing and storage

The personal infor­ma­tion we collect is stored and processed in the United States, or where we or our part­ners, affi­liates and third-party provi­ders main­tain faci­li­ties. We only transfer data within juris­dic­tions subject to data protec­tion laws that reflect our commit­ment to protec­ting the privacy of our users.

We only retain personal infor­ma­tion for as long as necessary to provide a service, or to improve our services in future. While we retain this data, we will protect it within commer­cially accep­table means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unaut­ho­rized access, disclo­sure, copying, use or modi­fi­ca­tion. That said, we advise that no method of elec­tronic trans­mis­sion or storage is 100% secure, and cannot guarantee abso­lute data secu­rity.

If you request your personal infor­ma­tion be deleted, or where your personal infor­ma­tion becomes no longer rele­vant to our opera­tions, we will erase it from our system within a reason­able time­frame.

We use “cookies” to collect infor­ma­tion about you and your acti­vity across our site.

Third-party access to infor­ma­tion

We may, from time to time, allow limited access to our data by external consul­tants and agen­cies for the purpose of analysis and service impro­ve­ment. This access is only permitted for as long as necessary to perform a specific func­tion. We only work with external agen­cies whose privacy poli­cies align with ours.

We will refuse government and law enfor­ce­ment requests for data if we believe a request is too broad or unre­lated to its stated purpose. However, we may coope­rate if we believe the requested infor­ma­tion is necessary and appro­priate to comply with legal process, to protect our own rights and property, to protect the safety of the public and any person, to prevent a crime, or to prevent what we reason­ably believe to be illegal, legally action­able, or unethical acti­vity.

Cookie Policy

We use cookies to help improve your expe­ri­ence of https://apisensor.com. This cookie policy is part of Auto­mated Precision, Inc.’s privacy policy, and covers the use of cookies between your device and our site. We also provide basic infor­ma­tion on third-party services we may use, who may also use cookies as part of their service, though they are not covered by our policy.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies from us, you should inst­ruct your browser to refuse cookies from https://apisensor.com, with the under­stan­ding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired content and services.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit, typi­cally contai­ning infor­ma­tion about the website itself, a unique iden­ti­fier that allows the site to reco­gnise your web browser when you return, addi­tional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (eg. logging in), to track site usage (eg. analy­tics), to store your user settings (eg. time­zone, noti­fi­ca­tion prefe­rences), and to perso­na­lize your content (eg. adver­ti­sing, language).

Cookies set by the website you are visi­ting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies”, and typi­cally only track your acti­vity on that parti­cular site. Cookies set by other sites and compa­nies (ie. third parties) are called “third-party cookies”, and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

Types of cookies and how we use them

Essen­tial cookies

Essen­tial cookies are crucial to your expe­ri­ence of a website, enab­ling core features like user logins, account manage­ment, shop­ping carts and payment proces­sing. We use essen­tial cookies to enable certain func­tions on our website.

Perfor­mance cookies

Perfor­mance cookies are used in the tracking of how you use a website during your visit, without collec­ting personal infor­ma­tion about you. Typi­cally, this infor­ma­tion is anony­mous and aggre­gated with infor­ma­tion tracked across all site users, to help compa­nies under­stand visitor usage patterns, iden­tify and diagnose problems or errors their users may encounter, and make better stra­tegic decisions in impro­ving their audience’s overall website expe­ri­ence. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visi­ting (first-party) or by third-party services. We use perfor­mance cookies on our site.

Func­tio­n­a­lity cookies

Func­tio­n­a­lity cookies are used in collec­ting infor­ma­tion about your device and any settings you may confi­gure on the website you’re visi­ting (like language and time­zone settings). With this infor­ma­tion, websites can provide you with custo­mized, enhanced or opti­mized content and services. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visi­ting (first-party) or by third-party service. We use func­tio­n­a­lity cookies for selected features on our site.

Targeting/advertising cookies

Targeting/advertising cookies are used in deter­mi­ning what promo­tional content is more rele­vant and appro­priate to you and your inte­rests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted adver­ti­sing or to limit the number of times you see an adver­ti­se­ment. This helps compa­nies improve the effec­ti­ve­ness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visi­ting (first-party) or by third-party services. Targeting/advertising cookies set by third-parties may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. We use targeting/advertising cookies on our site.

Third-party cookies on our site

We may employ third-party compa­nies and indi­vi­duals on our websites—for example, analy­tics provi­ders and content part­ners. We grant these third parties access to selected infor­ma­tion to perform specific tasks on our behalf. They may also set third-party cookies in order to deliver the services they are provi­ding. Third-party cookies can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. As we have no control over third-party cookies, they are not covered by Auto­mated Precision, Inc.’s cookie policy.

Our third-party privacy promise

We review the privacy poli­cies of all our third-party provi­ders before enlis­ting their services to ensure their prac­tices align with ours. We will never knowingly include third-party services that compro­mise or violate the privacy of our users.

How you can control or opt out of cookies

If you do not wish to accept cookies from us, you can inst­ruct your browser to refuse cookies from our website. Most brow­sers are confi­gured to accept cookies by default, but you can update these settings to either refuse cookies altog­e­ther, or to notify you when a website is trying to set or update a cookie.

If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may need to update your settings on each indi­vi­dual device.

Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your expe­ri­ence of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content across the sites you visit.

Children’s Privacy Policy

We are committed to protec­ting the privacy of children who use https://apisensor.com and its services. This children’s privacy policy is part of our approach to privacy, and covers the way we collect, store and manage infor­ma­tion provided by children under the age of 13, in accordance with the US Children’s Online Privacy Protec­tion Act (COPPA).

We encou­rage parents to engage with us in protec­ting their children’s privacy, ensu­ring a safe and enjoyable online expe­ri­ence.

Collec­ting infor­ma­tion from children

At times, we may require infor­ma­tion from children to enable parti­ci­pa­tion in certain acti­vi­ties, for example, regis­tering an account, custo­mi­zing a profile, or recei­ving noti­fi­ca­tions. When collec­ting non-personal infor­ma­tion, we encou­rage children never to provide any details that may perso­nally iden­tify them or reveal their loca­tion. We do not require children to provide more infor­ma­tion than is necessary to parti­ci­pate in an acti­vity.

We do not use children’s contact details for marke­ting purposes, though we may use them for our internal marke­ting and rese­arch in order to improve the quality of products and services offered across our site.

Parental consent

In accordance with COPPA, if an acti­vity does require any personal infor­ma­tion (such as first name, last name, or email address), we will provide notice to and seek consent from a parent or guar­dian prior to collec­ting the infor­ma­tion. We only retain collected infor­ma­tion for as long as necessary to enable parti­ci­pa­tion in the requested acti­vity.

In the event we discover we have collected personal infor­ma­tion in a manner non-compliant with COPPA, we will either delete the infor­ma­tion or seek parental consent.

As a parent/guardian, if you believe your child is parti­ci­pa­ting in an acti­vity that collects personal infor­ma­tion, and you have not received a noti­fi­ca­tion or request for consent, please feel free to get in touch via our contact page https://apisensor.com. We do not use parent contact details for marke­ting purposes unless marke­ting mate­rials are expli­citly requested.

Safe­guar­ding children’s privacy

We take secu­rity seriously, and do what we can within commer­cially accep­table means to protect your child’s personal infor­ma­tion from loss or theft, as well as unaut­ho­rised access, disclo­sure, copying, use or modi­fi­ca­tion. That said, we advise that no method of elec­tronic trans­mis­sion or storage is 100% secure, and cannot guarantee abso­lute data secu­rity.

Infor­ma­tion abuse and commu­nity miscon­duct

We do not tole­rate doxing (publi­shing of private or personal infor­ma­tion about an indi­vi­dual without their consent), cyber­bul­lying, or other forms of infor­ma­tion abuse on https://apisensor.com.

If we discover that a child’s personal infor­ma­tion has been disc­losed on our site without the express consent of their parent/guardian, we will remove the content in ques­tion as quickly as possible and effec­tive disci­pli­nary measures (a warning, suspen­sion or ban) on the offen­ding account.

Third-party access to infor­ma­tion

We do not knowingly disc­lose any perso­nally iden­ti­fying infor­ma­tion or personal infor­ma­tion provided by children to third parties. We may, however, disc­lose anony­mized and aggre­gated versions of this infor­ma­tion (analy­tics and statis­tics) for busi­ness, marke­ting or public rela­tions purposes.

Parental controls and inter­ven­tion

As a parent/guardian, you may at any time refuse to let us collect further infor­ma­tion from your children for a parti­cular acti­vity or account. If you have given us consent previously, you may log in to your child’s account to review, edit or delete the infor­ma­tion, or contact us via to request the removal of the infor­ma­tion from our records.

Please be aware that the removal of certain infor­ma­tion may result in the termi­na­tion of the asso­ciated account, or with­drawal from the asso­ciated acti­vity.
