WHAT PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS COLLECTED FROM PEOPLE WHO VISIT OUR BLOG OR WEBSITE?
When you place an order, fill out a form, or register on our website, as appropriate, you may be asked to provide your name, address, and email address.
When you browse our site, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION THAT IS COLLECTED?
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service, which can be viewed at https://ackermans.com/pages/terms-and-conditions.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information (PII) will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information (PII) used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
It’s also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking, which is explained in our Google AdSense & Cookies section of this policy.
