- Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity. ACEECA uses personal information to understand better your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured it will be used only to support your customer relationship with ACEECA. We take seriously the trust you place in us. ACEECA will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others.
On some ACEECA websites, you can order products or services, request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials or register yourself or your ACEECA products. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs and passwords, billing and transaction information, credit card information, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data.
To personalize our websites, services or communications and improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, and experiences with our products or services. Providing this additional information is optional.
- Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not associated with a specific personal identity. ACEECA collects and analyzes non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the ACEECA websites.
How we use your information
ACEECA uses your personal information to provide you with services and to help us better understand your needs and interests. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction or order, to communicate with you, to provide service and support, to update you on services and benefits, to personalize promotional offers and to personalize some ACEECA websites. Occasionally we may also use your information to contact you for market research regarding ACEECA products or services. We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding such communications (see Your privacy preferences and opting out). Credit card information is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention. Sensitive personal information is collected only to facilitate our financial service providers’ credit decisions and will be shared with them only with your permission. Credit card information and sensitive personal data are not used for any other purpose by our financial services providers or ACEECA and will not be kept longer than necessary for providing the services, unless you ask us to retain your credit card information for future purchases.
Personal data collected online may also be combined with information you provide ACEECA through other sources such as product registration, call centers or public events such as trade shows or seminars.
Personal data given to ACEECA may be transferred across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management.
Non-personal data is aggregated for reporting about ACEECA website usability, performance and effectiveness. It is used to improve the customer experience, usability and site content.
Who we share your information with
ACEECA will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. ACEECA will not share your personal information with third parties except in responding to your requests for products or services. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information. ACEECA shares customer information across ACEECA-owned business entities and companies working on our behalf, but only as described above in How we use your information.
ACEECA contracts with third-party service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions described in How we use your information. Suppliers and service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of ACEECA and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for ACEECA. These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our customers. ACEECA will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.
ACEECA or its related entities could merge with or be acquired by another business entity or some or all of their respective assets could be acquired. If such a combination or acquisition occurs, ACEECA will make every reasonable effort to notify you in the event we share with the merging or acquiring entity some or all of your personal information to continue serving you.
ACEECA gives you the choice of receiving a variety of information that complements our products and services. You can subscribe to receive certain product- and service-specific information and ACEECA marketing communications. ACEECA communications may include new product information, special offers, or an invitation to participate in market research. This option does not apply to communications for the purpose of administering order completion, contracts, support, product safety warnings or driver updates.
Your privacy preferences and opting out
ACEECA will not use your personal information for a different purpose than the one stated when you provided your data. Examples of unrelated uses include sending communications about special offers, product information, and marketing messages. You can, however, choose to receive these types of non-subscription communications by following the instructions below.
To opt-out of receiving communications you have expressly requested (such as e-mail newsletters, software updates, etc.), return to the Web page(s) where you originally registered your preferences and follow the opt-out instructions.
Your information and third-party companies
Certain ACEECA services are linked with those from unrelated third-party companies, some which offer you the option to share with both ACEECA and the third party personal data you provide. Examples include the ability to register software products from multiple vendors from a single ACEECA Web page, to request communications from ACEECA marketing or solution partners, or to enable order completion through a reseller. We will not share your personal information with those third-party companies unless you make that choice.
Access to and accuracy of your information
ACEECA strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain customer data accuracy. We will provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable effort to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of ACEECA’s websites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers.
The most effective way to view and change your personal information is to return to the section where you submitted your information and click on the "My Account" button and follow the instructions on that page.
Keeping your information secure
ACEECA is committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, ACEECA has in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window.
Credit card numbers are used only for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. As part of real-time payment processing, ACEECA subscribes to a fraud management service. This service gives you and ACEECA an extra level of security to guard against credit card fraud to protect your financial data.
Changes to this Statement
If there are updates to the terms of ACEECA’s Online Privacy Statement, we will post those changes and update the revision date in this document, so you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have. For material changes to this Statement, ACEECA will provide notification to affected customers.
† An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
