There are many different ways you can use our services
- to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating an ARCHI Account, we can make those services even better
- to show you more relevant search results and ads. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we're using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
- What information we collect and why we collect it.
- How we use that information.
- The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
We've tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you're not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to ARCHI so whether you are new to ARCHI or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices
- and if you have any questions contact us.
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users
- from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which areas we shall update data in.
We collect information in the following ways:
-Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a ARCHI Account. When you do, we'll ask for personal information, like your name, email address and telephone number
-Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you perform an ARCHI search on the ARCHI website or ARCHI App. This information includes:
-When you use our services or view content provided by ARCHI, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes:
- details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
- Internet protocol address.
- device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
- Location information ?When you use ARCHI services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide ARCHI with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
- Local storage ?We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
When you contact ARCHI, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
ARCHI processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it
- unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of ARCHI unless one of the following circumstances applies:
- With your consent We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of ARCHI when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
- For legal reasons We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of ARCHI if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
- meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
- enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
- protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of ARCHI, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners
- like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
We work hard to protect ARCHI and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
- We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to ARCHI employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
