Information Collection & Use
Abstract App, Inc. (“Abstract,” “us,” “we”) is committed to respecting your privacy. This policy discloses the privacy practices for Abstract and the ways we collect store, use and protect your personal and non-personal information on our website. Abstract collects information from individuals who visit our web sites and the customers (“Users”) who register to use the Abstract web-based business and content management solutions (“Services”).
Services-related Announcements for Users
We will send you services-related announcements as needed. For instance, as we add software enhancements we will send you an email notification. These emails are necessary for the maintenance of your account with us.
Personally Identifiable Information
Customers use our products for storage and management of contracts, files and documents (collectively, “Content”) related to their business. That Content is considered confidential to our customers. Abstract will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Content except for the purpose of resolving a problem, providing customer support or to investigate a suspected violation of our Terms of Service.
Any personal information you submit to us is optional and we use it solely for the purpose for which it is collected or for communicating with you regarding the Services. At minimum we ask for your name, email address, company, state, and contact phone number so that we may communicate with you, billing contact information, credit card number and password.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active, (i) as needed to provide you Services, (ii) to comply with our legal obligations, (iii) to resolve disputes, and (iv) to enforce our agreements.
We do share personally identifiable information as follows in order to maintain your customer account with us: All financial and billing information that we collect is used solely to check the qualifications of prospective customers and to bill for our Services. Abstract uses a third-party credit card processor to assist us in processing customer payments. This processing partner is not permitted to store, retain, or use the personally identifiable information provided, except for the sole purpose of credit card processing.
We may occasionally also employ third parties to act on our behalf. Some examples include providing marketing support, analysis and public relations.
When we employ such companies they are not permitted to retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purpose than to complete the contracted assignment. In some cases we may provide Services, or sell product lines jointly with selected business partners.
We DO NOT share, sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information with third parties for unknown reasons.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain non-personally identifiable information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, click stream data and other fields. We use this aggregated and anonymized information to analyze trends, to administer the site, and to track Users’ movements around the site. This information will not be shared with third parties without your written consent unless required by applicable law.
Special Offers and Updates
We will occasionally send Users information on our products, educational offers and our newsletter. We will use your name and email address to send these communications to you. Out of respect for your privacy, if you’d prefer not to hear from us you can choose not to receive these types of communications. Please see the “Choice and Opt-out” section below, however, you will still receive communications such as confirmation emails and customer support updates that are necessary to continue to provide the service to you.
We use industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information will always remain private. If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using Abstract or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Abstract Website. If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.abstractcre.com
), or elsewhere on the Abstract Website and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
In the event Abstract goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.
