Like most website operators, Akaunting Inc. collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Akaunting Inc.’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Akaunting Inc.’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Akaunting Inc. may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Akaunting Inc. also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users (customers and store managers), customers purchased a product and for users leaving comments on Akaunting stores.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Akaunting Inc.’s websites choose to interact with Akaunting Inc. in ways that require Akaunting Inc. to gather personally-identifying information.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a store at Akaunting to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Akaunting Inc. – by opening a support request via ticket system or live chat, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Akaunting Inc. collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s or customer's interaction with Akaunting Inc.. Akaunting Inc. does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Akaunting Inc. will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Akaunting Inc. discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Akaunting Inc. believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Akaunting Inc., third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Akaunting Inc. website and have supplied your email address, Akaunting Inc. may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Akaunting Inc. and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Akaunting Inc. takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
