Please review the following to understand how we process personal data about you.

Information You Provide Us

Apertura does not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our Website. Apertura gathers personal information (“PI”), such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, PI may be collected from you in connection with you applying for a job with us, or by contacting us with questions or comments.

Some areas of our Website may require some identification as a part of participation. In each case, we will make it clear what PI will be collected and how we will use it.

Apertura may utilize advertising networks and third-party analytics services that automatically collect and temporarily store certain information about your visit to our Website, including (i) the pages of our Website that you visited; (ii) the time and date of your visit; and (iii) the address of the website that you came from when you entered our Website. This information would be aggregated and anonymized, and we use it to help diagnose problems with our server and to improve our Website’s content.

We may also utilize – directly or indirectly through a third-party service provider – technical methods in HTML emails that we may send to determine whether you have opened those emails or clicked on links in the emails.

Do-Not-Track Settings

Your California Privacy Rights

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine the Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal data (if any) we disclosed to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once per year per person, must be sent to the email address below, and are free of charge.

We do not disclose personal data protected under the “Shine the Light” law to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.

Your Rights in Other Countries

Apertura is headquartered in the US and any information that we collect will be transferred to our servers in the US. If you use our services or access our Website from another country, you expressly agree to the transfer of your information to the US. To the extent you have questions or concerns with regard to your rights regarding our collection and processing of personal information in your country, please contact us at the email address provided below.

Security of Your Information

Apertura takes steps intended to secure the PI provided to us. For example, PI you provide is accessible only by designated personnel.

We employ reasonable physical, technical and organizational safeguards to promote the security of our systems and protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of your PI. Please note, however, that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. While we use these measures to protect your PI, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will be effective or sufficient. Additionally, please be aware that since Internet data submissions are not always secure, we cannot warrant that information you transmit utilizing the Website is or will be secure.

Retention of Your Information

We generally retain PI for as long as reasonably needed for the specific business purpose or purposes for which it was collected and the duration of your use of our Website(s), apps and other relevant online tools.


If you supply us with your postal address or e-mail address online, you may receive periodic communications from us with information on our programs and services. If you do not want to receive postal mail and/or e-mail from us in the future, please let us know by sending your request via the unsubscribe link contained in our e-mails or by contacting us as set out below.

Apertura will never rent, trade or sell your e-mail address. However, we may occasionally share your name and postal address with our service providers.

Access to and Deletion of Information

The accuracy of your PI is important to Apertura. If you would like to review or delete any PI you have provided to us, please contact us at the email address below, and we will consider your request. We reserve the right to deny to any such request if we deem it to not be commercially reasonable or otherwise injurious or inappropriate, except to the extent fulfilling the request is required by applicable law.

In order to provide certain services and materials, our Website may allow you to “click” over to other websites. This Privacy Policy only applies to the Website and does not apply to any third-party sites. Apertura is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other third-party sites, even if our name and logo appear on such websites. We recommend that you review the privacy policies on third-party sites before you use any services or programs they offer.

Information from Children under Age 13

Apertura does not knowingly solicit or collect PI from anyone under the age of 13. Visitors under the age of 13 should ask their parent or legal guardian for assistance when using this Website and should not submit any PI to Apertura. In the event we learn that we have collected PI from a child under age 13, we will delete that information.

Business Transition

In the event another organization merges with or acquires Apertura or substantially all of its assets, your PI may be transferred to that successor or acquiring entity. A court also may order the sale of PI as an asset in a bankruptcy or similar insolvency proceeding.

Modifications and Updates

This Privacy Policy replaces all previous disclosures we may have provided to you about our information practices with respect to the Website. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, and/or update this Privacy Policy without advance notice, and any such modifications, alterations, or updates will be effective upon our posting of the revised Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Website following our posting of any revised Privacy Policy will constitute your acknowledgement of the amended Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is subject to any agreements, including the Terms of Use that govern your use of the Website. This Privacy Policy applies regardless of the means used to access or provide information through the Website.

This Privacy Policy, however, does not apply to information from or about you collected by any third-party services, applications, or advertisements associated with, or websites linked from, the Website. The collection or receipt of your information by such third parties is subject to their own privacy policies, statements, and practices, and under no circumstances are we responsible or liable for any third party’s compliance therewith.
