To be a registered Ape Software member, customers and visitors must first complete the registration form. During registration, employers and professionals are required to provide their contact information (i.e. name, address, phone number and email address - required information varies depending on the reason for registration). This information is used ship product or to send confirmation emails when required. Any and all information provided will not be given/sold to third parties and is completely confidential.


Cookies are text files that websites use to capture information about the visitors using their sites. Ape Software uses cookies to recognize registered visitors, customers, and other repeat visitors to make the browsing experience more consistent and to allow logged in users to remain logged in. (For example, a registered customer or visitor logs out of Ape Software. The member returns to Ape Software to log into the website. The member's username already appears in the login form, and the member is only required to enter their password to login.) Ape Software members must have cookies enabled on their browser(s). Cookie preferences are set within each browser's Internet options/preferences.

Should Ape Software allow advertisers on the website, some of these advertisers may use cookies. Ape Software will have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files

Ape Software logs IP addresses for system administration purposes. This information is used to diagnose server problems, monitor traffic patterns, analyze trends, administer the website, track visitor and customer use patterns, and identify the most popular areas of the website to deliver content most relevant to registered members. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. They are only used to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.


Should Ape Software share aggregated demographic information with partners and/or advertisers, such information will not be linked to any personal information that identifies individual members.


Ape Software contains links to other websites and is not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites. Ape Software encourages its members to read the privacy policies of all websites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Ape Software.


Ape Software takes every precaution to protect registered member information. When professionals and employers submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and offline.

While Ape Software uses encryption to protect sensitive financial information online, we also protect member information offline. All member information is restricted within our offices. Servers used to store personally identifiable information are housed in a secure, supervised environment. In addition, only Ape Software employees who need specific information to perform a task are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are current with our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, employees are notified and reminded about the importance of privacy, and what they can do to ensure the protection of sensitive member information.

If you have any questions about Ape Software website security please contact us through our Contact and Feedback page.
