This Statement covers ATS’ collection of personal information that ATS gathers when you are on the ATSA websites. It does not apply to information collected and stored by a means other than this website or practices of third parties that ATS does not own or control, or to individuals that ATS does not employ or manage. By accessing the ATS websites, you are accepting the practices outlined in this Statement.
Access to information about customers collected from the ATS websites is restricted to ATS and third parties that need access to customer information in order to provide ATS operational or other support services, ATS product information or product, service or upgrade offers, or as may be required by law. ATS does not distribute, sell or rent any personal information collected via its websites. This is also true for personal information (email address, postal address, etc.) sent to the websites’ email addresses. ATS does not send unsolicited emails to users of its sites. The transmission of personal information entered via the sites’ forms is protected by security features.
ATS’ PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION AND PURPOSE
ATS’ primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with a friendly, customized, and efficient experience. ATS takes reasonable precautions to protect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction of personal information. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
(A) INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
ATS collects identifying information when you use the ATS websites, and when you enter promotions or contests. For example, we may require customers who are interested in contacting us or ordering product to give us the following personal information: their name, Company and/or Agency name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, credit card number, and the identity of users within the organization that will be using the ATS websites. When you initially express interest in obtaining additional information about the ATS websites, or when you register on the ATS websites, we may also ask for additional types of personal information, such as title, department name, fax number, or additional company or agency information. We may also request demographic information and unique identifiers in order to provide you with a more personalized experience or verify your passwords. All financial and billing information that we collect from you is used for the purposes of checking your qualifications as a prospective customer and billing you for purchases. ATS may use a third-party intermediary to manage the credit card and billing processing. This intermediary is solely a link in the distribution chain, and is not permitted to store, retain, or use the information provided, except for the sole purpose of credit card and billing processing.
If you are a registered user of the ATS websites, please note that some information about you may remain in our records.
(B) AUTOMATIC INFORMATION
ATS receives and stores certain types of information whenever you interact with us via ATS websites. ATS automatically receives and records certain “traffic data” on our server logs including your IP address, ATS cookie information, the page you requested, and your communications and interactions with other site users. ATS uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer the ATS websites.
ATS automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our websites and use of components of our websites. ATS may use this information to provide research, advice and information, including, without limitation, for benchmarking purposes (e.g. we may publish an industry white paper that uses data collected through the use of our ATS websites). This data is only used in the aggregate. This type of collective data also enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the ATS websites so we can make the websites appealing to as many customers as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use the ATS websites. We may share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use areas of our ATS websites, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience. We also collect and use information for internal purposes.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit web sites anonymously. While ATS will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
(C) EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS
ATS may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from ATS if your computer supports this type of program, in order to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. ATS may also send out emails with information regarding ATS including promotions and events. Customers may opt out of receiving such emails by selecting the “unsubscribe” link in the ATS email.
INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES
For purposes such as improving personalization of the ATS websites, ATS may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
