AP Privacy Policy: Your Privacy Rights

This Privacy Policy applies to information that The Associated Press and its affiliates (referred to collectively in this Privacy Policy as "AP," "we," "us," "our" and other similar pronouns) collect through those AP ENPS web sites and mobile applications which make this Privacy Policy available as a statement of privacy practices (each such web site and mobile application, a "Service"). This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we collect through the Services, how we will use and disclose the information once it is collected, and how you can opt-out of some of our uses and disclosures of your information. By using any of the Services, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy as applied to those Services, including changes made to the Privacy Policy as described in Part 11 below.

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to information that you may provide to us, or that we may obtain, outside the Services, such as through our other web sites or mobile applications or over the phone, by mail, or in person.

1. What information is collected through our Service?

User-Provided Information

The ENPS Mobile App stores a user’s username and password only in the App on their device. No information is sent back to AP.

During your use of a Service you may provide us with personal information, such as your name, e-mail addresses, your activities, including browsing and transaction history, or other information that could be used to identify you as an individual or allow someone to contact you, as well as any information associated with such information personal information (collectively, "Personal Information").

Location Data

While we do allow the App to collect location data, that data is only shared with the user’s corporate server. It is not shared with us. Corporate or Home server refers to a server that the ENPS licensee installs and maintains in order to operate ENPS Mobile and permit ENPS Mobile Apps to connect to that server.

When using our Services from a mobile device (a "Mobile Service"), you may choose (using your device's location settings) to share the geographic location of your device with us. We use your location information to allow you to “check in” at a location when the user chooses to do so.

If you choose not to transmit location information to your home server, certain features may not be available or their functions may be limited. Your network service provider may still provide coarse location information (based on access points you've connected to, for example). The information provided varies by service provider. You should check with your own provider to find out what information is provided and if there are ways for you to limit it.

Service Usage Information

The App doesn’t currently collect any service usage information, but we reserve the right to do so in the future. Among other things, this information will enable us to generate analytics reports on the usage of our Service. In addition, we may deploy various tracking technologies through our Services to collect additional information about your use. For example:


These tracking technologies may be deployed by us and/or by our service providers or partners on our behalf. These technologies enable us to assign a unique number to your computer or device, and relate information about your use of the Services to other information about you, including your Personal Information. These technologies also enable us to recognize you when you access our Service using different web browsers or devices.

2. Opt In and Opt Out

You can opt-out of our promotional e-mails by clicking on the opt-out link within the e-mail you receive. Please understand that it may take us a few days to process any opt out request and that even if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.

3. How is your information used

We or our service providers may use the information we collect from and about you to perform the following business functions:










To perform the above functions, we may match information collected from you through different means or at different times, including both Personal Information and information about your use of the Services, and use such information along with information obtained from other sources (including third parties) such as demographic information and updated contact information. We or our service providers may also use your information to assess the level of interest in, and use of, our Service, our e-mails and our other messaging campaigns both on an individual basis and in the aggregate.

4. External Platforms

We may maintain a presence on social media and other external platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter. We may occasionally incorporate certain third party social networking features onto our Service. This Privacy Policy applies to our use of information you submit to us there, but it does not apply to what those third party platforms do with your information.

Our Services may allow you to share information with us that you have already provided to a third party social networking platform. For example, you may be able to create an account on our Service or log-in to our Service using your Facebook account or other third party credentials. If you do so, then Personal Information or other data that you have provided to that third party may be made available to us by that third party subject to their own privacy policies, terms and conditions. Social networks and other external platforms have their own privacy policies which explain how they will use, protect and share your information, including any information you share on those platforms from our Service, and we encourage you to read them. The information we receive from these platforms may depend on your privacy settings. Any such information that we obtain will remain subject to that third party's privacy policy and we will use any such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may also include tools on our Services that allow you to share and/or publicly post articles, content or information from our Services to your profile on a third party social network. You may choose to share information about your activities on the Service with such third party platforms and its users, including publishing your information about what content you may have viewed on our Services. If you visit a Service while logged into certain social media platforms, the social media platform may be able to identify your browser and associate the technical information provided by your web browser with other information that they have already collected about you, which may result in their ability to identify you. In addition, when you choose to share information about your activities on the Service with certain social media platforms, AP may send technical information about you to that platform as well as information about what content you are viewing.

5. Do we share Personal Information and Service Usage Information with others?

Yes, for the limited purposes described below. We may share your information:



The Services may also contain certain co-sponsored content and you may be requested to provide additional Personal Information to the co-sponsor of such content. We will disclose to you when you are submitting Personal Information to co-sponsors. The information practices of any third party co-sponsors are governed by their own privacy policies and are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

In addition, what you voluntarily post to public areas of our Service will often be readily available to other Service users. Finally, we may share non-personally identifiable information about usage of the Services (including aggregate data) with others, for their own use, in a form that does not include your name or contact information.

6. Your Access Rights

You may review, update or correct certain of the Personal Information that is stored in your user account in our Services (if you have one) by changing the information stored on your device or by contacting your System Administrator.

7. Security

While we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of sensitive Personal Information collected via our Service, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.

We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.

If you create an account on our Service, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any activity that occurs using your account credentials, whether or not you authorized such activity. Please notify your ENPS system administrator of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security.

10. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed Privacy Policy on this page with a new "Last Updated" date. In some cases (for example, if we significantly expand our use or sharing of your Personal Information), we may also tell you about changes by additional means, such as by sending an e­ mail to the e-mail address we have on file for you.
