Dear Visitor or Subscriber:
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. While using
our service, we attempt to minimize the personal information that we need from
you. We always want you to be fully informed of how this information is gathered
and used. If you have any questions that are not answered by this policy, or
would like to talk to us about anything in this policy, please contact us at
What Information Do We Gather?
In addition to the information you choose to provide to us, ACT also collects other technical information such as IP addresses and the date and time of your visit. Administrators do have the ability to view your IP address if you post requests for literature; and, of course, collects the information that you choose to provide when you make a request.
How We Use the Information
We understand that your personally identifiable information is private and confidential. That's why we want you to know what we need to offer our services to you and how we use that information. Generally, we use your personally identifiable information to provide you with our services.
We also use registration information to ensure compliance with the law, and to better understand our user base. We aggregate that information and use those summary results to improve our services to you and may provide those summaries to our advertisers or investors. We also reserve the right to use or disclose any user information if we believe that user is violating the law, our rights, or the rights of other users.
To Whom We Disclose Information
Be assured that your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, and email address is not sold to others. In the interest of bringing the highest quality services to you "under one roof," however, we have formed partnerships with other Web-based services. Some of these arrangements include the sharing of some of our information with our partners in order to extend these services to you. As we explain above, you will have the opportunity to opt out of joining any of our partner services at the time of offer. ACT, as well as its partner sites, may send you e-mail messages on a regular basis to keep you apprised of new offers.
There are some situations where we may need to disclose information to organizations or entities not described in our policy here. First, we may be legally required to disclose your information if required by a subpoena or court order. If this happens, and it is permitted by legal authorities, we will attempt to notify you at least 15 days before any disclosure. Second, we may transfer the information in our possession in connection with a sale of assets of the company, a sale of the company or a merger.
Changing and Deleting Your Information
After you register with us, you will have an opportunity to change your e-mail address so that you continue to receive future messages from us. At this time, we do not have the ability to give you access to provide or edit your other registration information, but we are working on providing this feature in the future. Keep in mind that the information you provide on your personal profile may be modified and deleted at any time.
How We Protect Your Information
We understand that you are providing personal information to us. While we have gone to great lengths to describe what it is that we collect and how we use it, we would also like you to know how we protect your information. It is our intention to treat your account information with the highest level of care. Along those lines, we have implemented industry standard firewall protection and password protected all of the databases that contain your information. Employees who need access to your information to perform their jobs are the only ones who receive the passwords to our members' information. Regardless of their access rights, all of our employees are required as part of their employment with us to respect and protect your private information. Grounds for not doing so as an ACT employee may constitute termination. You are also one of the most important aspects of our security. Please think twice before providing personally identifiable information on any web site.
Children's On-line Privacy Protection Act
We believe it essential that parents are involved in their children's online experiences. That is why, in compliance with federal law, we do not knowingly collect information of any kind from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware of a user under the age of 13 providing information on our site, we will terminate that account and purge our databases of all information provided by that user.
