We respect your right to privacy and will only process your personal information in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws.
This Policy explains how Aplix collects, stores, uses and discloses information from you when you use Aplix products, services, mobile applications and websites. This Policy applies to users of the Aplix "Service", defined as the services, APIs, and functionality we make available either through our website at www.aplix.co.jp, www.harps4.com and related site pages (the "Website"), via separate sites, repositories or servers under our control (including hosted servers for providing communication between Aplix hardware modules and mobile applications), and through third party sites that utilize our services and functionality, as well as through our device application software ("Software"). This Policy does not apply to websites, applications, or services that do not display or link to this Policy or that display or link to different privacy statements; nor does this Policy apply to practices of companies that we do not control or to people we do not employ or manage.
By accepting the Policy during account registration, or by purchasing or downloading Aplix products or software, you expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information and non-personal information as described in this Policy and to all other terms herein.
We reserve the right at our discretion to modify this Policy from time to time. Your continued use of and access to the Service after notice of such modifications indicates your acceptance of and agreement to the modified Policy.
B. Information Collected
We collect information about you in various ways when you use our Service. Some of this information may be Personal Data about you. As used in this Policy, "Personal Data" means any information (either alone or in combination with other information we hold) that specifically identifies you as an individual, such as your name, address and physical location, account numbers, username and password, email addresses, or telephone numbers.
As well as Personal Data, we also collect information that is not personally identifying, including aggregate information, which is data we collect about use of the Service or about a group or category of users from which it is not possible to identify you (“Nonpersonal Data”; together with Personal Data, collectively "Information").
When you register for an account, and in the course of your use of the Service, we collect the following Personal Data: your log-in information (username and password) and email address. Payment processors may collect more personal information you provide in order to process payments for use of Aplix solutions.
When you use our Service, we automatically collect Nonpersonal Data sent to us by your computer, mobile device or other access device, such as a device ID or unique identifier, device type, model and brand, geo-location information, computer, network and connection information, internet protocol (IP) address, access times, operating system and browser version, device identifiers, type and language, installed applications, and the website you visited before our Website. We also collect Nonpersonal Data about your usage and activity on the Service. This Policy does not restrict or limit our collection, disclosure and use of Nonpersonal Data.
The Service also includes a location feature, which may use geo-location technology to approximate your real-time location. This location feature is optional and may only be used with your affirmative consent; however, if you choose not to allow the Service to access your location, certain features of the Service may not be available.
We may additionally collect Information using pixel tags, web beacons or other web site usage tracking technologies. Web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels") are electronic images that may be used in the Service or in emails that we send to you. Amongst other things, we use Web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon. Such devices are used to collect Nonpersonal Data, such as the identity of the applicable internet service provider, the IP address of the user’s personal computer, the type of browser software and operating system in use, the date and time of site access, the website address, if any, from which the user linked to the Website and other similar traffic-related information. We also may aggregate such information with similar data collected from other users. However, we do not use such data in any way to create or maintain Personal Data about you.
Do Not Track Disclosure
We do not engage in the collection of Personal Data from users across third party sites or applications, except as those third party sites and applications may operate or access the Service for your use, and except as specified by you when you select to register to the Service via such third party sites or applications.
Services Via Third Party Applications
We may provide Services functionality via or to third party applications. In such context, we collect only Nonpersonal Data as described in this Policy (such as device IP address, device model, brand, operating system, version, language/country and timezone, network and connection information). Any Personal Data that may be collected by such third parties is subject to such third parties' policies and practices, over which we exercise no control. We will not be liable for the acts and omissions of such third parties or for any loss of privacy, use or control of data caused by such third parties. You must contact such third party application developers for any requests, questions or concerns you may have regarding your Personal Data and data collected via such third party applications.
C. Our Use of Information
We may use and provide data and information to our partners and customers for commercial purposes after we have removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it, or have combined it with other people's data in a way that it is no longer associated with you. We use Information collected through our Service for the purposes and as described in this Policy, as disclosed to you on our Software, and as needed to carry out the Service. We may also use your Information to:

We may also share and disclose Nonpersonal Data, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Service.
E. No Guarantee of Security
We take reasonable measures to help protect your Personal Data in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, no one can create a completely secure website, app or service and third parties may unlawfully intercept, steal or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that your Information or private communications that you transfer over the internet to us will always be secure or remain confidential.
Your password deserves careful thought and protection. Use unique numbers, letters, and special characters and do not disclose your password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately access your profile to change your password and notify us immediately via the inquiry form.
G. International Transfers
We may process Information on servers located in a number of countries. Accordingly, we may share Information with our affiliated companies for such companies to carry out any of the activities specified in this Policy. We may also subcontract processing to or share Information with third parties located in countries other than your home country. Information collected within the European Economic Area and Switzerland may, for example, be transferred to, and processed by our affiliates or other third parties identified above that are located in, a country outside of the EEA and Switzerland, where you may have fewer legal rights in relation to your information. However, we will only process your information as described in this Policy in every country.
The Services are not directed at or intended for children under thirteen (13) years of age, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from such children. If you believe that we might have any Personal Data from a child under 13 years of age, please contact us via the inquiry form. We reserve the right to limit participation in particular Services, solutions, programs, offers or promotions to those over 18 years of age.

You may also opt out of receiving promotional emails from us by following the instructions in the emails themselves or via the inquiry form. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relations.
