Privacy

The ADAVB is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the ADAVB website and governs data collection and usage. By using the ADAVB website, you consent to the data practises described in this statement.

Collection of your personal information

The ADAVB collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The ADAVB also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postcode, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by the ADAVB. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by the ADAVB for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ADAVB website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through ADAVB public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: ADAVB does not read any of your private online communications.

The ADAVB encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from ADAVB so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. ADAVB is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the ADAVB and ADAVB family of websites.

Use of your personal information

The ADAVB collects and uses your personal information to operate the ADAVB website and deliver the services you have requested. The ADAVB also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from ADAVB and its affiliates. The ADAVB may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

The ADAVB does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The ADAVB may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, the ADAVB may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ADAVB, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

The ADAVB does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

The ADAVB keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within the ADAVB, in order to determine what ADAVB services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ADAVB to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

The ADAVB websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ADAVB or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ADAVB; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ADAVB, or the public.

Use of cookies

The ADAVB website use "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise ADAVB pages, or register with ADAVB site or services, a cookie helps ADAVB to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ADAVB website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ADAVB features that you customised.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ADAVB services or websites you visit.

Security of your personal information

ADAVB secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. The ADAVB secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this statement

The ADAVB will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. ADAVB encourages you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how ADAVB is protecting your information.
