At Inventory Ahead, LLC, (“Inventory Ahead”, “we”, “our” or “us”), we respect your privacy. We have implemented this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain our data collection and use practices with respect to all of our Applications (as defined below).

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, your use of (i) the website located at, (ii) the Inventory Ahead account, platform, and/or portal, (iii) any of our mobile applications (or “app”), or (iv) any of our products and services, shall collectively be referred to as use of our “Applications.”

Your use of any of our Applications means that you have read, understood, and accepted the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Not all of our Applications have released, but when they are, this Privacy Policy shall continue to be your sole source of disclosure about the information that we collect, use, and share with respect to those Applications.

This Privacy Policy pertains to our data collection and use practices for information that we receive from you, from our trustworthy third-party partners, from your use of our Applications or for any of our subscribing clients.
