Introduction

 

The ASSOCIATION FOR BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS INTERNATIONAL, a Michigan nonprofit corporation ("Company" or "We") respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through its compliance with this policy.

 

This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you use the ABAI CE Scanner App (our "App") and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

 

This policy applies to information we collect on this App.

 

It does not apply to information collected by:

 

  • us offline or through any other means, including on any other apps or website operated by the Company or any third party; or
  • any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries), including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from the App.

 

WE TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION; HOWEVER, GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE INTERNET, WE CANNOT ENSURE COMPLETE SECURITY AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BREACH OF SECURITY OR FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANY PERSON OTHER THAN THE COMPANY. ALTHOUGH WE TAKE PRECAUTIONS AGAINST SECURITY BREACHES, HACKERS POSE A THREAT TO ANY INTERNET USER, AND THE LEGAL AND REGULATORY STATUS OF MATTERS ON THE INTERNET IS UNCERTAIN BOTH IN THE UNITED STATES AND ABROAD. UNFORTUNATELY, NO DATA CAN BE GUARANTEED TO BE COMPLETELY SECURE, INCLUDING INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO THIS APP. FOR THESE REASONS, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION WILL NEVER BE DISCLOSED IN WAYS YOU DO NOT EXPECT OR WHICH ARE NOT DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION.

 

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our App. By accessing or using this App, you agree to this privacy policy. This policy may change from time to time (see Changes to Our Privacy Policy). Your continued use of this App after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.
