Privacy & Security Policy
Collection and Use of Your Personal Information
For all visitors to its Sites, ACST collects general data pertaining to each website visitor, such as the visitor's IP address, operating system, browser type and version number, and the web pages viewed. This information is aggregated with all other visitor information.
ACST collects personal information, which means information by which specific individuals can be identified, including name, identification number, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal characteristics or attributes. ACST will process personal information collected from you fairly and lawfully and will not use such personal information for purposes that are incompatible with the purposes it was requested and received. For example, ACST will use your personal information to process orders; to help us to improve our Sites and ACST Software and your online experience; to provide you with information about our products and services; for ordering, customer support, payment, processing and service purposes; to transact business with us; for credit checks, collections and related billing or credit purposes; and as otherwise allowed by law.
In addition to personal information you provide to us for the purpose of ordering products, you may provide financial information to us for the purpose of extending credit to you and/or selling products and services to you. This data is only used to process financial transactions and evaluate your credit worthiness, and is reviewed periodically as long as your account is active. It is shared with financial institutions as a normal course of doing business. Your account status and payment history is also reported to various credit reporting agencies.
Sharing Your Personal Information
ACST may share your personal information within our organization, with any ACST subsidiary worldwide, or with authorized third parties (e.g., business partners, suppliers and financial institutions) as described in this policy. We may also disclose information in response to subpoenas, governmental requests or other legal process or to otherwise protect our legal or contractual obligations. We will not sell or otherwise transfer your personal information to individuals or entities outside of us or one of our authorized partners or resellers without your approval.
ACST may provide customers with promotional announcements for savings, rebates, product-related information, product updates, and product launches. These announcements can be stopped at any time by selecting the opt-out feature at the bottom of the e-mail; provided, however, this opt-out does not apply to non-promotional information provided to customers regarding their accounts or purchased product or services. We do not sell these e-mail lists to any of our business partners for any reason.
Third Party Service: Promotions, Events and Webinars
From time to time, ACST may collect personal information for promotions, events and webinars. This information may be disclosed to our third-party partners for the limited purpose of awarding prizes and/or developing business opportunities.
Blogs and other Forums
If you use a communication platform for content creation, sharing, or distribution on any of our Sites or using ACST Software, you should be aware that any information you submit there can be read, collected or used by other users and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums. These forums may be hosted by ACST, by our customers and/or by one of our third party service providers on ACST's behalf. ACST is not responsible, or liable to any customer or third party, for the substance or accuracy of any information or material posted by you or any other user of the ACTS Sites, ACST Software or communication platforms.

Disclosure of your information to protect our rights or if required by law
Notwithstanding the foregoing, ACST reserves the right (and you authorize ACST) to share or disclose your personal information when ACST determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary or appropriate:
- To prevent prohibited or illegal activities; or
- When required by any applicable law, rule regulation, subpoena or other legal process.
Data may be transferred upon change of control
Personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other change of control. If we sell, merge or transfer any part of our business, part of the sale may include your personal information. If so, you will be asked if you'd like to stop receiving promotional information following any change of control.
Transport or deletion of data
Your data belongs to you. You can remove it anytime you want and you should remove it just prior to requesting us to delete your account. When you request us to stop using the Sites or ACST Software, your data may be permanently expunged from our primary production servers and further access to your account may not be possible. We will also promptly disconnect any connection we had established to your account information and delete all account credentials. However, portions of your data, consisting of aggregate data derived from your account information, may remain on our production servers indefinitely. Your data may also remain on a backup server or media. ACST keeps these backups to ensure our continued ability to provide services to you in the event of malfunction or damage to our primary production servers. We also reserve the right to use any aggregated or anonymous data derived from or incorporating your personal information. If you have special requirements, please send ACST a written request for consideration, and ACST may be able to accommodate your needs for an additional charge.
