Abco Research Associates Privacy Policy

Effective January 1, 2014

Abco Research Associates (hereafter referred to as Abco) has created this privacy policy to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of the users of our websites. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy, and how we treat personally identifiable information collected from our visitors and users.

What this Privacy Policy Covers

This privacy policy covers Abco’s treatment of personally identifiable information collected by Abco through websites owned and operated by Abco.

This privacy policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Abco does not own or control, or of persons that Abco does not employ or manage, including any third-party content contributors bound by contract and any third-party websites to which Abco’s websites link.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

We collect and store information that you enter into this website or that you provide to our customer service department. For example, when you place an order, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide: name, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, credit card number and expiration date. This information is used to provide the products and services that you have ordered or requested, to process and ship orders, to send order and shipping confirmations and to provide customer service. This information also may be used for our own marketing and internal business purposes, and to contact you about sales, special offers and new site features, unless you have opted not to receive promotional communications in connection with this website.

We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with this website. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit this website. We also collect information regarding customer traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve this website and to provide our customers with a fulfilling shopping experience.

Is Information Collected From Children?

This website is not intended or directed to anyone under the age of 18. We do not sell or ship any items ordered through this website directly to anyone who we know to be under the age of 18, nor do we collect any personal information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 18.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We do not share with others, or sell or rent to others, any personal information that you provide to us through this website or through our customer service department.

We engage third parties to perform services in connection with the operation of our business. Examples of these services include payment processing and authorization, fraud protection and credit risk reduction, product customization, order fulfillment and shipping, marketing and promotional material distribution, website evaluation, data analysis and, where applicable, data cleansing. We provide personal information to these third parties, but we authorize them to use this information only in connection with the services they perform.

We may release personal information if we believe in good faith that: the law or legal process requires it; we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency; or such release is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Abco, or any of our respective affiliates, business partners, customers or others.

We may share non-personal information with our marketing partners, advertisers and others from time to time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited this website during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through this website. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form.

As with any business, it is possible that as our business develops, we might sell or buy online stores or other assets. In such transactions, information about customers often is among the transferred assets. Accordingly, in the event that Abco, or substantially all of our respective assets, are acquired by a third

party, such information may be one of the transferred assets (unless the information was collected under a previous Privacy Policy that did not permit such disclosure). Under such circumstances, Abco as the case may be, would to the extent possible require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

If you do not consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information as outlined in this policy, please do not provide any personal information to Abco. If you have provided personal information to Abco and no longer consent to its use or disclosure as outlined herein, please notify Abco at abco@sybian.com.

Security

We use various security measures, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, to protect personal information that we collect.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Abco may at any time, without notice to you and in its sole discretion, amend this policy from time to time. Please review this policy periodically. Your continued use of Abco websites after any such amendments signifies your acceptance thereof.

Questions or Suggestions

If you have questions or suggestions about this privacy policy, or your own personal information, please e-mail us at abco@sybian.com.
