information collected and processed by us
visiting our websites
When users visit our websites and click on various links (i.e., request pages from our server), our web server automatically collects some information about the users, including their IP addresses, rough geographic location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation paths, as well as information about the timing, frequency and pattern of users’ service use. The collection of this information is necessary for us to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer and improve our websites to provide the best user experience for website visitors. From this information we compile broad demographic information about our users to aid in our legitimate business interest of improving advertising or the usefulness of our websites for our users. This demographic information does not contain anything that can identify users personally. However, we may combine demographic information supplied by a subscriber at registration with site usage data, to provide profiles, in aggregate form, about our users and their preferences in the content of the site and advertising. We may share this composite information with our advertisers to help them better understand our services, but we do not give advertisers or other third-parties information about individual users or their usage of the websites.
Users may object to the processing of their data for the above mentioned purposes for any reason or no reason; however, due to technical reasons, it is not possible to entirely stop processing for users that visit our websites, even if they have objected to us doing so. Users should not visit our website if they do not wish to have any of their information processed.
Users may inquire about our products and services by visiting our websites and entering in their name and contact information. This information is collected and processed, at our users’ request, for the purpose of addressing their questions or comments related to our products and services.
After we complete the processing of a request, the correspondence is to be kept only for the period of time required under statute or legal retention periods and the contact information is then deleted.
setting up an account
When setting up an account on an acpi brand website, users will be asked to provide personal data, such as their name and email address. This information will be stored and processed by us to fulfill or in furtherance of a contract or prospective contract between a user or the user’s organization and us. Users may deactivate their customer accounts or notify us of their objection to us holding and/or processing the information they provide with respect to their account at any time by contacting that brand’s customer service team. In either case, we will delete their information and deactivate their account.
signing up for newsletters or entering acpi-sponsored contests
We may also store and process e-mail addresses provided by our users to send out e-mail newsletters and promotional e-mail to our users about services and products offered by our websites if users opt in to receive such communications. By opting in, users are consenting to our sending the requested newsletters, emails or other communication. If users want to subsequently opt out of receiving these communications, they can click on the “Unsubscribe” link in any newsletter or promotional e-mail and we will delete their contact information.
Furthermore, we may occasionally sponsor a contest or conduct a poll on one or more of our websites where, in order to participate, users must enter personal information, including name, phone number and address. We will collect and process this information in furtherance of our users’ desire to participate in such contests and polls. After the completion of the contests or polls, we will keep user information only in accordance with law or our legal retention periods, unless directed otherwise by our users (for example, if a user, through the entry of a contest, also opts-in to receive our advertisements or newsletters).
Occasionally, we may conduct a contest or poll through one of our third-party marketing agencies. In such cases, the collection and processing of participants’ personal information will be done by such third-parties and subject to their own privacy policies. Our users will be notified if we use a third-party agency to conduct any of its contests or polls.
We occasionally contract with third parties to provide services to our users. In performing their duties under these contracts, these third parties may have access to personal information supplied by our users; however, they are required to maintain the confidentiality of this information and are prohibited from using the information for purposes outside the scope of the contract between us and such third party. Some of our third party processors include payment processors, analytic providers and software developers.
You may also choose to interact with us on social media, for example by following, commenting on, or sharing content. Based on your social media privacy settings, most social media platforms, like Facebook, analyze how you interact with us, other companies, and combine it with other information to target advertisements.
We will not reveal any personal information that users provide to us to any third party unless necessary to fulfill a contract, a user provides his/her consent or the disclosure is permitted under applicable law. Third parties will not contact our users through the use of our e-mail newsletter lists except through advertisements within the newsletters themselves, or unless users ask to be placed on a list to receive e-mail from our advertisers on subjects of interest.
For more information, including how to reject or manage cookies, please go to www.allaboutcookies.org.
In addition, in order to achieve our legitimate interest of providing our users with a better customer experience, some of our sites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (Google).
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, which provides a certain level of data protection with respect to the processing of data by Google. Users may block the use of Google Analytics’ analysis by either downloading and installing the Google Browser Plugin and opting out of the use of their cookies or by selecting the relevant setting in their browser, which you may access through the links above. For more information, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html.
retaining personal data
We shall not retain personally identifiable information for any purpose or purposes longer than is necessary to fulfill such purpose or purposes.
Notwithstanding the other provisions of this policy, we may retain and process users’ personal information where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or to defend or exercise legal claims.
children’s online privacy protection:
The acpi websites comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, which protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect contact or personal information from children under 13. If we become aware or are notified that we have personal information belonging to someone under the age of 13, we will promptly delete the information.
Our websites may enable you to access third-party websites, services, or other content. Please note that we do not control and are not responsible for how those third parties may treat your personal information. Instead, you should look to those parties’ policies and practices to understand how they treat your personal information.
