The Information We Collect
We collect a variety of information from you and other sources when you use the Service, including technical information as well as information that can be used to identify you individually, sometimes referred to as “personal information.”
To use the Service, you will be required to create an account with us. You may sign up for an account for the Service on our Site, located at http://www.accrualify.com, or if your employer (“Employer”) has partnered with Accrualify, you may also receive an email from us inviting you to create an account to use the Service. During the registration process, you will be required to create a user ID and password in order to establish an account for the Service. We may ask you for certain personal information during the account set-up process, or your Employer may provide us with certain personal information about you that you have already provided to them, including but not limited to your name, email address and employment-related information such as your employer name, and occupation.
When you use the Service, we may automatically collect a variety of information about your use of the Service in log files, such as your IP address, device ID, operating system, and browser type, as well as information regarding transactions you may engage in using the Service. This information is gathered for all users. We may also use “cookies,” or small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive so that the Service may access that information on return visits. We generally do not store or retrieve any personally identifiable information in cookies. If you have set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all the features of the Service.
If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about the Service, we may ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email or instant message inviting him or her to visit the Site. Accrualify stores this information to send this one-time invitation, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
We may also collect personal information from you if you contact us for any reason through email, phone, mail, or other similar means, or through any interactions you may have with Partners, users, or other parties.
