Information about Privacy on A.D.S.
A.D.S. is committed to protecting your privacy. You can visit most pages
on our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes
we do need information to provide services that you request, and this
privacy statement explains data collection and use in those situations. This
privacy statement only applies to A.D.S.; it does not apply to other
online or offline sites, products or services. Please read the complete
A.D.S. privacy statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies
you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this
information is requested when you are registering before entering a contest,
ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, signing
up for an event or training, or when purchasing and/or registering A.D.S.
products. Personal information collected by A.D.S. often is limited to
e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other
information when needed to provide a service you requested.
For example: If you choose a service or transaction that requires payment,
such as making a purchase in the Shop area of the Web site, we will request
personal information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name,
address, telephone number, and credit card number.
When you buy a new product, we may ask you to register your purchase
electronically. We keep this registration information on file with any
information you've already given us on previous visits to our Web site.
A.D.S. also collects certain information about your computer hardware and
software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type,
operating system, domain name, access times and referring Web site
addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to
maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding
use of A.D.S.
A.D.S. also collects information about which pages our customers visit
within A.D.S.. This site visitation data is identified only by a unique ID
number, and it is never linked with personal information
Use of your Personal Information
We use your personal information for the following purposes:
To ensure our site is relevant to your needs.
To deliver services, such as newsletters, that you request.
To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and
other new services from A.D.S., if you so request.
To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our site as appropriate.
We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information
for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to
provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of A.D.S.,
with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your personal
information in order to provide you with personalized content. We
occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf,
including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer
questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing
event registration. We will only provide those companies the information
they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that
information for any other purpose.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information,
A.D.S. will not share that information with third parties without your
permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will
only be used for the purposes stated above.
A.D.S. may send out periodic e-mails informing you of product or service
you requested, or confirming you requested a product or service. You will
not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are
considered an essential part of the service you have chosen.
Access to your Personal Information
A.D.S. will provide you with the means to ensure that your
personal information is correct and current.
If you register on A.D.S., you can review and edit your personal
information at the My Account. You will be asked to enter your Username and
password before viewing your personal information.
At the My Account you can view and edit personal information you have
already given us at A.D.S..
Security of your Personal Information
A.D.S. is committed to protecting the security of your personal
information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to
help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or
disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide in
computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled
facilities. When we transmit sensitive information (such as a credit card
number) over the internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such
as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Protection of Children's Personal Information
A.D.S. is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect
any personal information from children.
When someone visits the site, a cookie is placed on the customer's
machine (if the customer accepts cookies) or is read if the customer has
collection of the site visitation statistics described above.
