We provide a comprehensive Data Privacy Consent form to our website visitors in an appropriate format and manner whenever we collect personal data from them (i.e., in our forms or web pages that collect personal data).

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) is being used online. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

How do we use your information?

The collected personal information is utilized solely for documentation and processing purposes within 1902 Software Development and is not shared with any outside parties that are not a part of 1902 Software Development's operation, excuding sales and marketing consultants and agencies that maintain our accounts with Google AdWord, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the like. We may use the information we collect from you in the following ways:

  • To allow us to better service you in responding to your inquiries and customer service requests;
  • To follow up with you after correspondence (live chat, email or phone inquiries);

These database are contained on secured networks and are only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

  • Only authorized 1902 Software Development personnel have access to these personal information stored as electronic files, the exchange of which are normally facilitated electronically.

What are the risks of using third-party servers?

We use third-party services to store our data because third-party services have the expertise and infrastructure to keep the data secure, and ensure durability and availability. Such expertise and infrastructure are far better than any medium-sized company can provide; in fact, large businesses rely on the same services for their own needs. Using any third-party servers or local servers for that matter, there are risks to these storage, such as but not limited to:

  • Unauthorized access and transfer by unaccredited personnel from third-party servers
  • Vulnerability to malware attacks by hackers and cybercriminals
  • Legal compliance to the local data regulation laws of the countries where the physical servers are located
  • Loss and destruction caused by mishandling of physical servers or storage devices

These risks cannot be completely eliminated, but can be minimized with measures such as securing data transfer, securing software interfaces, securing stored data, user access control, and data separation. In addition, no third-party service can guarantee 100% data durability and availability.

Do we use “cookies”?

Read about our Cookie policy.

Third-party disclosure

We do not sell or trade your Personally Identifiable Information.


We use Google AdWords Advertising on our website. Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.

You may refer to Google AdWords Policy:


Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on previous visits to our site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google Ad and Content Network privacy policy.

We have also implemented the following:

  • Remarketing with Google
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting
  • Demographics and Interests Reporting

We, along with third-party vendors such as Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.

Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

Other online advertisement platforms 

Besides various Google advertising tools and mediums, we also use other online advertising platforms, approaches, tools, and mediums (including retargeting advertising and emails) for our sales and marketing campaigns. These platforms, approaches, and tools may vary from time to time.  

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf
In relation to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously by opting to disable the accepting of cookies from websites in their browser settings.
  • We have a Privacy Policy page in our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy page includes the word “Privacy" and can be easily found on the site's main menu.
  • For any changes on our Privacy Policy page, it is your responsibility as a user to visit this Privacy Policy page regularly to keep yourself updated of the amendments herein.  
  • You can change your personal information by sending us updated information through our Contact Page.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur: We will notify you via email within seven (7) business days.

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against illegal data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. We collect your email address in order to respond to your inquiries and requests, and to send information. To be in accordance with CAN SPAM, we agree to the following:

  • Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email and we will promptly remove you from all correspondence.

Does our site allow third-party behavioral tracking?

It’s also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking.
