Please read the information below:
1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We collect several types of information about visitors to this Website and/or users of our services. We may collect this information either directly when you provide it to us or automatically as you navigate through the Website.
(a) Personally Identifiable Information. "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information by which you may be personally identified, such as your name, email address, or school. We will collect and process such data about you when you register for a service/create an account, subscribe to a newsletter, submit feedback, enter a contest, fill out a survey, or send us a communication. When ordering products or services on the Website, you may also be asked to provide a credit card number and other payment-related information. You may also provide information to be published or displayed ("posted") on public areas of the Website (such as blogs, forums, message boards, and the like), or transmitted to other users of the Website using "sharing" features (collectively, "User Contributions"). Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Depending upon the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. We do not collect more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary for a child to participate in an activity on the Website. If you are a school and you use the ACE-Learning.com service for children under the age of 13, you are responsible for obtaining consent from the parents/legal guardians of each child you wish to allow to participate in using any ACE-Learning.com service. A child using the service will be able to participate in certain activities on the Website such as taking online educational and informational courses.
(b) Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information, that does not by itself identify a specific individual. Such information tells us about your equipment, browsing actions, the resources that you access and use on the Website, your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, operating system and browser type. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our Website and to gather demographic information. Our third party ad servers will provide us with summary, but not individual, reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon at our Website. The information that we collect automatically is "statistical" in nature. It helps us to deliver a better and more personalized service to users, by enabling us to estimate usage patterns, customize our Website according to your individual preferences, and speed up your searches.
(c) Device Information. When you download our mobile application and use our services, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use and the operating system version, so we know the best application version to provide you with. We do not ask you for, access or track any location based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our Mobile Application or services.
2. WHERE WE STORE DATA
3. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use information held about you in the following ways:
If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about goods and services similar to those, which were the subject of a previous sale to you.
If you are a new customer, and where we permit selected third parties to use your data, we (or they) will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this.
If you use the Contact Us form on our site, we will respond to your inquiry and delete the information provided after your request has been fulfilled.
4. DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
(a) We provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with services providers and other third parties. Our service partners and we use your Personally Identifiable Information to operate our websites and to deliver services. For example, we must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services purchased on this Website; release your address information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered; and provide order information to third parties that help us provide customer service. We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personally Identifiable Information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control.
(b) We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information in the following circumstances:
(c) In the event that ACE-Learning.com decides to sell all or part of its stock or assets or enter into a merger, we reserve the right to include Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information among the assets transferred to the acquiring or surviving company.
(d) We may provide Non-Personally Identifiable Information about our customers' sales, traffic patterns, and related Website information to third party advertisers, but these statistics do not include any Personally Identifiable Information.
(e) Parent's are able to consent to the use of their child's Personal Information without having to consent to the Website's disclosure of the child's Personal Information to third parties, as we do not share personal information of children under the age of 13 with any third parties (other than those service partners who help us provide the ACE-Learning.com service to you).
