Privacy Policy

Azavea values the privacy of those who visit our Web sites and register for our software and services online. We think it is important for you to understand when and why we collect personally identifiable information and how we may use it. This Privacy Policy describes Azavea data collection and use policies. By visiting the Azavea website, by using or registering for our software and services online, or by otherwise providing us with personally identifiable information (such as an email address), you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

Azavea collects personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, only if you provide this information to us voluntarily.

Certain information, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, may be stored through the use of “cookies” intended to speed access to Azavea information and services. A cookie is a small file that can be used to tell us when you visit our Web sites and track your browsing preferences. Azavea does not use cookies to store information such as credit card numbers, telephone numbers, or other information you provide. To maintain your privacy, you can disable your browser’s ability to accept cookies.

Azavea Web sites and software installation may require registration to gain access to services or other features. This information will be used to provide support and deliver specialized services.

Azavea may also collect personally identifiable information you provide when you order and register software, data, or services; enter contests; order newsletters; register for training; or make requests that require a direct response to you.

How We Use This Information

The voluntary information we collect is used for internal verification to complete transactions, ensure appropriate legal use of licensed Azavea software, provide notification to licensees about updates to Azavea’s and our affiliates’ software, data, services, and to help provide technical and product support to our users. Where appropriate, Azavea may pass this data to an Azavea affiliate whose software, data, and services provide solutions to meet your needs.

Azavea does not distribute User contact information or User usage logs to any third party, other than for the purpose of providing the service or for technical support directly related to the service.  This may include sharing street addresses or place names with providers for the purposes of geocoding an address.  Azavea reserves the right to publish aggregated usage information for the purpose of displaying usage patterns to Users and potential Users but will do so in a manner that does not enable the identification of specific Users.  Azavea further reserves the right to display the User’s ID in conjunction with the data they have contributed as well as the User’s name and email address for the purpose of enabling the owner of the Site (the Customer or Subscriber) to communicate with Users about the Service.

Azavea may also use your name, address, and e-mail to send you marketing materials and newsletters unless you notify us that you do not want to receive these materials.

When This Policy Applies

While browsing the Azavea Web site, you may be able to access the Web sites of our affiliates and third parties through a hyperlink. Azavea assumes no responsibility for the privacy practices of third parties’ Web sites, except where noted below, and suggests you review the privacy statements/policies on such Web sites before sharing your personally identifiable data.

In some cases our privacy policy may apply in addition to the privacy policies of third parties whose data or technologies we have used in our applications or our affiliate applications. Additional, applicable privacy policies are incorporated here:


If you submit personal information, Azavea may contact you or send you marketing information about software or services. If you do not wish to receive this information, you may notify us by sending an e-mail to info at Azavea dot com as indicated below.

Other than as described in this Privacy Policy, Azavea will not disclose your personally identifiable information unless required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the edicts of the law, (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Azavea, or (3) as part of a transfer of assets to a successor in interest.
Except as stated, Azavea does not rent, sell, or otherwise share personally identifiable information.


Azavea will permit you to access information about you in our database by contacting info at Azavea dot com. If you believe any of the information is incorrect or needs updating, please advise us. We will correct our records upon verification of the requested change. If you no longer wish to receive e-mail or other notifications about software, services, or special promotions, you may let us know by sending an e-mail to us at info at Azavea dot com and specifying that you do not want to receive these notifications. We will use reasonable efforts to refrain from including you when sending marketing materials to Azavea clients by noting your election in our database.


Azavea will take reasonable and prudent precautions to ensure that your personally identifiable data is protected against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.


If you believe for any reason that Azavea has not followed these principles, please contact us at info at Azavea dot com, and Azavea will act promptly to investigate, correct as appropriate, and advise you of the correction. Please identify the issue as a Privacy Policy concern in your communication to Azavea.
