1.3 How We Use APIs:

AvePoint products use and transfer data only using recommended methodologies and Application Programming Interfaces (“APIs”) approved by Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, or other platform technology providers. Our applications' use of APIs adheres to the respective user data policies of such platform technology providers, as applicable. For example, our use of Google APIs adheres to the Google API Services User Data Policy (including Google’s “Limited Use” requirements thereunder).

1.4 Third Party Websites

Please note that our sites may include links to third-party sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of AvePoint. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by the privacy statements on those sites. We encourage you to review the privacy statement of any site you visit.

2. Cookies, AI, & Similar Technologies

2.1 Our Use of Cookies

Most AvePoint websites use “cookies”, which are small pieces of data sent to your browser by a web server. Upon subsequent requests, your browser will send the cookie data to the same web server, or other web servers in the same domain, when accessing the website. Cookies contain data that can be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. That data often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer but may contain other information as well. Here is an example of a unique ID number stored in a cookie that AvePoint might place on your device when you visit one of our websites: 0aj17be34l7srju0qcdnftigt0

We May Use Cookies For:

and Authentication

When you sign into a site or service using your account on an AvePoint website, we store a unique ID number, and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your hard disk. This cookie allows you to move from page to page at the site without having to sign in again on each page. When you sign out, these cookies are deleted from your computer. This is commonly referred to as a “session cookie”. We also use cookies to improve the sign-in experience. For example, your username may be stored in a cookie that will remain on your computer after you sign out. This cookie allows your username to be pre-populated, so that you will only need to type your password the next time you sign in. If you are using a public computer or do not want this information to be stored, you can select the appropriate radio button on the sign-in page, and this cookie will not be used.

Site Analytics

We may use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page or service or to develop other aggregate statistics about the operations of our sites and services. These analytics help us operate and improve the performance of these sites and services.

In addition to the cookies AvePoint may set when you visit our websites, third parties may also set certain cookies on your device when you visit AvePoint sites. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide certain services on our behalf, such as site analytics. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain content or ads from third parties, such as videos, news content or ads delivered by other ad networks. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.

2.2 How to Control Cookies

Browser Controls to Block Cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to block cookies. Instructions for blocking cookies in different browsers are usually available at each browser’s privacy statement or in their help files or settings pages.

Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of AvePoint sites and services that depend on cookies.

Browser Controls to Delete Cookies

If you accept cookies, you can delete them later. Instructions for deleting cookies in different browsers are usually available at each browser’s privacy statement or in their help files or settings pages.

Please be aware that if you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and may need to be recreated.

Browser Controls for “Do Not Track” and Tracking Protection

Some newer browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Those sites (or the third-party content on those sites) may continue to engage in activities you might view as tracking even though you have expressed this preference, depending on the sites’ privacy practices. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the Do Not Track signal, AvePoint does not currently respond to the browser Do Not Track signals on its own websites or online services, or on third-party websites or online services where AvePoint provides content or is otherwise able to collect information.

2.3 Our Use of Web Beacons

AvePoint web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons - sometimes called single pixel gifs - that may be used to help deliver cookies on our sites, let us count users who have visited those pages and deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

Finally, AvePoint sites may contain web beacons from third parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other website operations. These web beacons may allow the third parties to set or read a cookie on your computer. These companies may collect information about your online activities across websites or online servers, however, we prohibit third parties from using web beacons on our sites to collect or access your personal information. You may be able to opt out from data collection or use by these third-party analytics companies by opting out on their respective websites.

2.4 Other Similar Technologies

In addition to standard cookies and web beacons, websites can use other technologies to store and read data files on your computer. This may be done to maintain your preferences or to improve speed and performance by storing certain files locally. But, like standard cookies, it can also be used to store a unique identifier for your computer, which can then be used to track behavior.

2.5 Ava

AvePoint utilizes a customer and partner-facing chatbot called Ava, within our AOS and Elements web pages. Ava utilizes AI to generate content and engage with users. Please know that, as with any generative AI product, Ava can make mistakes and it is each user’s responsibility to ensure the accuracy of all content generated by Ava. Please refer to the Ava Terms of Use, which govern your use of Ava, available at

  • Operate, improve, and personalize the products and services we offer. Information collected through one AvePoint service may be combined with information collected through other AvePoint services to give you a more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with us. We may also supplement this with information from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies to help us derive a general geographic area based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your geographic area.
  • Communicate regularly with you about your use of the software and service, AvePoint events and other industry or privacy-related news, and other AvePoint services we believe may be of interest to you – if the applicable laws allow it or if we have your express permission to do so.

We will not use your Customer Information for automated decision making or profiling.

Some AvePoint services or AvePoint websites may give you the ability to access, correct or delete your personal information online. To help prevent your personal information from being viewed by others, you first might be required to sign in. The method(s) for accessing your personal information will depend on which sites or services you have used.
