ASC gathers two types of information about you: personally-identifiable information and non-personal information. As described below, each type of information is gathered, used and stored in different ways.
PRIVACY OF MINORS
ASC does not knowingly collect Personally-Identifiable Information of minors. Children under the age of 13 may not use this Website, and use of this Website is not intended for use by minors older than 13 without parental consent. Minors should not disclose Personally-Identifiable Information on this Website without the approval and supervision of a parent or guardian.
COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
Non-Personal Information is gathered automatically each time you visit the Website. ASC uses the aggregated data from the Non-Personal Information gathered to improve Website performance and enhance the user experience by responding to trends in page views, linking within the site and interactions with selected ads. For example, “cookies” – small pieces of information that the Website and other sites place on your computer’s hard drive – help the Website remember your preferences, provide information targeted to your interests and location, and otherwise make your Website experience more enjoyable. “Web beacons” are images embedded in the code of the Website that helps us monitor traffic patterns amongst our users.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
ASC cannot collect your Personally-Identifiable Information without your consent and participation. You may be required to disclose Personally-Identifiable Information in order to register for an account or transact business on the Website. By submitting your Personally-Identifiable Information, you authorize ASC to use that Personally- Identifiable Information to provide the interaction or service you have initiated.
By submitting your Personally-Identifiable Information to ASC through the website or otherwise, you agree that ASC may contact you for the purpose of advising you of changes or additions to the Website, about any of ASC’s products or services, or for such other purpose(s) as ASC deems appropriate. You may opt out of these communications at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the communication.
You also agree that ASC may disclose your Personally-Identifiable Information to ASC’s affiliates, agents, and any third party that administers the Website or any services offered on the Website on ASC’s behalf. Such third parties may include, but are not limited to, email marketing service providers, e-commerce fulfillment providers and marketing survey firms.
You also agree that ASC may disclose part or all of your Personally-Identifiable Information when ASC believes, in good faith, that the law requires or compels such disclosure; or when ASC has a reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to protect ASC’s rights or property, or the rights or property of another; or to prevent harm. Further, ASC may disclose personal and/or corporate information provided by you as part of any merger, sale, or other acquisition of some or all of ASC’s organization or its assets.
PROTECTION OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
ASC follows generally accepted industry standards to protect Personally-Identifiable Information during transmission via the Website and storage after the fact. By way of example and not limitation, Personally- Identifiable Information is transmitted to ASC over an encrypted connection and stored in a secure database at ASC’s or its vendors’ facility.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “PERFECT” SECURITY ONLINE. Please bear that in mind when deciding what Personally-Identifiable Information to disclose to ASC. If at any time you are asked for Personally-Identifiable Information you do not wish to be disclosed in any of the ways discussed above, you should terminate the transaction or cancel your account registration immediately.
If you choose to register for an account via the Website, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information (i.e., user ID, password and/or challenge questions). ASC is not liable for any unauthorized disclosure of your Personally-Identifiable Information that results from your failure to adequately protect your account information.
CLOSING YOUR ACCOUNT
You may cancel your Website account at any time by contacting ASC. Upon your request, ASC will delete your personal and/or corporate information within a reasonable time, provided that ASC may retain your Personally-Identifiable Information in its non-public databases for a reasonable period of time to support ASC’s business requirements.
In addition, you understand and agree that there may be circumstances when ASC is legally required to retain your Personally-Identifiable Information. In that case, ASC will protect your Personally-Identifiable Information in a manner consistent with its then-current security procedures until the legal requirement expires or is removed.
