How We May Use Your Personal InformationThe personal information we collect helps us deliver, develop, and improve our products, services, support and content.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with ABS, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve ABS products, services, support and customer communications.
Disclosure to Third PartiesService Providers
ABS shares personal information with companies who provide services such as purchase processing, fulfilling customer orders and delivering products to you. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever ABS operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for ABS to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganisation, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
Protection of Personal Information
ABS takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
ABS online services use CartLoom Shopping carts that use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected and or Secure PayPal Checkout for processing payments for services. To make purchases from these services, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it's transmitted over the Internet.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 16 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
