At Ascension Technologies, Inc® (“ATI”), we are committed to protecting your privacy and to developing technology that gives you the most powerful and secure online experience. You can travel through most of our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we may need information to provide services that you request, and this statement of privacy explains data collection and use in those situations. Please read the complete ATI privacy statement. By using our Website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collecting 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 asked to register before ordering e-mail newsletters. Personal information collected by ATI often is limited to e-mail address, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
Use of Personal Information
We use your personal information for two primary purposes:
To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you.
To alert you to updated information from ATI.
Information collected on our Website may be shared within ATI, including its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates. Additionally, 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.
ATI will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ATI or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ATI and its family of Web sites.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, we 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.
Security of Personal Information
ATI strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in Canada or any other country where ATI, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located, and by using our Website, you consent to any such transfer outside of your country.
