ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION

We do not share, sell, rent, or transfer your personal information other than as described in this section.  Your information will be accessible to Aquor employees who are trained to comply with our internal policies and this Privacy Policy for handling Personal Information.  

Third-party vendors that provide support to us (“Service Providers”) may also have access to your personal information while they are carrying out these services. However, we require all Service Providers to maintain confidentiality standards that are commercially reasonable and comparable to those of Aquor.  Our Service Providers will not be allowed to sell or disclose your information to any other third parties without your consent.

We allow some Service Providers to assist us with behavioral advertising by collecting and analyzing certain information when you visit our websites (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject clicked or scrolled over).  These Service Providers typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. You may opt out of behavioral advertising at any time by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices or www.aboutads.info/choices/ or as instructed in this Privacy Policy.

Disclosure of Your Information.  Aquor does not share, sell, rent, or transfer your Personal Information to any business that is not a Service Provider.

Aquor does not transfer any contact information to other marketers and will honor your requests to not be contacted by us. We may also disclose your information to unaffiliated companies/vendors where necessary to and for the limited purpose of processing your request, processing a transaction authorized by you, or providing you with products or services.

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information:

  • If we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as to comply with any court order or subpoena or to respond to any government or regulatory request.
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Aquor, our customers or others.
  • To a buyer or other successor, in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding or event, we may transfer the personal information that we have collected or maintain to the buyer or other successor.
  • With your consent.

 

SECURITY

It is Aquor’s policy to treat your Personal Information confidentially.  We employ commercially appropriate and reasonable safeguards both online and offline to maintain the security, confidentiality, and integrity of information that we collect about you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural security measures to safeguard your non-public personal information.  

Please note, however, that no transmission of data over the internet is 100% secure. While we employ reasonable measures to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not defeat those measures or use nonpublic Personal Information for improper purposes.  We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site or for the actions of third parties. The safety and security of your information also depends on you, and you are responsible for keeping your password confidential.  Also remember to log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place. All internet users should take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to help protect yourself against identity theft.

THIRD PARTY SITES & ADVERTISING

This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by Aquor.  We may provide links to third party websites from our Sites as a service to our users, but we have no ability to control, and we are not responsible for, the privacy and data collection, use, and disclosure practices of third party websites.  When you click on links on our Site that take you to external websites, you will be subject to their privacy policies and practices. We encourage you to review and understand the privacy policies of such websites before providing them with any information.
