Privacy Policy

Privacy and Security

When you provide us with information through aamro.com (the "Site"), we respect your privacy. It is important for you to understand what information we collect about you during your visit and what we do with that information.

Please note that this Privacy Policy governs only information provided by the Site. It does not govern any other information or communications that may reference AAMRO, e.g., communications from retailers.

This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use and disclosure of information that you may provide via this Site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this Site.

 

Information aamro.com Collects

While maintaining our commitment to your privacy, we do collect personally and non-personally identifiable information about you. A description of the types of information collected is outlined below.

Personally identifiable information includes your name, shipping address, billing address, telephone number, email address and credit card information. We collect this information during the online checkout and email newsletter registration processes so that we can properly fulfill your orders and requests.

Non-personally identifiable information includes your IP address and how you maneuvered through the Site. We collect this information so that we can identify general shopping and navigation patterns so we might better understand how to improve your experience with us.

 

Personally Identifiable Information

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you, except when you provide it to us. For example, if you decide to complete a user registration form or online survey, you may be asked to provide certain information such as your contact information (name, email address, mailing address and telephone number), age group, gender and product concerns and the brands and products you use. If you decide to place an order, we will also need to know your delivery and billing address, credit card number and expiration date. To protect your personal information, users registering at the Site must also enter a user name/email address and password.

If you would prefer that we not collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information. You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.

When you submit your personally identifiable information on the Site, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

As you navigate through this Site, certain anonymous information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information). Your Internet browser may transmit to this Site some of this anonymous information, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using.

This Site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to Site visitors, customize the Site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends and otherwise administer and improve the Site for your use. Such information is not combined with personally identifiable information collected elsewhere on the Site unless you have consented.

 

Consent

By using this Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this Site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We implement various security measures in accordance with industry standards to protect the security of your personal information both online and offline. This Site takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should always keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

 

Children Under 13

We take special steps to safeguard the privacy of children. This Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this Site from visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to websites.

 

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this Site to improve the content of our Site, to customize the Site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this Site that is not in personally identifiable form.

We do not sell, trade, or rent your email, address or phone number to anyone. We may use outside shipping companies to ship orders (FedEx, APX, USPS, or UPS) and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies may receive personally identifiable information to help us process your order. These companies will not retain share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Your personal data will be stored on file at AAMRO's headquarters for as long as your account is active. We may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this Site to third parties that are not associated with AAMRO, but only:

  1. to contractors we use to support our business (such as fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes;
  2. in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this Site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy and use it for the same purposes; or
  3. to respond to law enforcement requests or where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.

The collection, use and disclosure of information contemplated in this Privacy Policy may involve a transfer of the information to jurisdictions located outside your country of residence that may not have equivalent laws and rules regarding personally identifiable information. In these cases, you will be asked to consent to such transfers and disclosures in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
