Asher Group Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Sam Asher Computing Services, Inc. (“Asher Group”) and its divisions, such as Hyper-Reach respects the privacy of every visitor to our websites and every user of our mobile apps. Your privacy is important, and we work hard to protect it. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect and use information about online visitors, app users and those who register for our services to public safety agencies. We understand that you care about your information and we want you to be fully informed about how we use that.

This Policy may be changed or updated from time to time. By visiting the Asher Group or Hyper-Reach or any of our websites or using one of our mobile apps, you accept the practices described in this Policy.

The Data We Collect

Our websites and mobile apps provide convenient ways for you to access our services and learn about what Asher Group does for public safety agencies, client corporations and others. We collect information about our online visitors both directly from our visitors and indirectly from other companies that provide data to us. We use this information to communicate with you, others who have registered or visited our websites, used our apps, etc., and our clients. Where appropriate, we collect information for our clients, such as public safety agencies, to communicate with their citizens, or organizations, to communicate with their employees, contractors and/or customers.  We do not sell any of the information we gather to any third-parties.

When you use our websites or apps to register for emergency notifications or other information or to ask about our services, we may ask you for your name, address, phone number(s), email address and other information relevant to the situation.

We obtain information about our online visitors from other sources as well. For example, we engage vendors that provide contact information and other data. We use this data to help us more effectively contact citizens in an emergency, engage with people who may be interested in Asher Group services or for other purposes relevant to our mission.

We may also collect non-personal information about our online visitors using “cookies”, pixels, web beacons, and other technologies that operate automatically when you visit our website. We use this information to give our website visitors a more relevant online experience and to help us make website improvements. The information helps us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our online visitors are going, and how long they spend there. If you do not want us to collect information using cookies, you can disable this function in your browser. If you block cookies from us, however, you may not be able to see personalized content and our website may not function optimally.

How We Secure Data

We use several security measures to protect your information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to and improper use of personally identifiable information.

We protect the security of your data using measures such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, and physical security. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the information you send us. When we work with other companies to collect payment card information, those companies also use encryption and other appropriate security measures.

No website or electronic data is completely secure, but we are constantly working to maintain up-to-date and appropriate security measures.

How We Use Your Information

If you provide the Asher Group with personal information when you visit our websites or use our mobile apps, we may use the information in our services. We may enter your information into one of our databases so we can contact you either for our own purposes or for one of our public safety clients, or – if you are an employee, customer or supplier of one of our clients – to contact you on behalf of our client.

The Asher Group does not sell, trade, or share personally identifiable information with any other entity, except as described in this policy. We do not send mailings to anyone unless our clients have given us permission to do so, and then, only to the audience relevant to them (e.g. a citizen of a county governmental client of ours.)

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

We Care About Your Information

The Asher Group is committed to accuracy and precision in processing your information. We have procedures to check for errors, and our systems are periodically audited to make sure we process your information securely and accurately.
