Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect and use the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services.

What Information Do We Collect?

When you visit our website, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.

  1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide

Registration Information

You may be prompted to provide information about yourself, your company or organization and your practices when you access the corporate website of ABS Group of Companies, Inc. (ABS Group) and our affiliated operating companies' websites, register for certain services or register for email newsletters and alerts. You may also provide additional comments on how you see ABS Group servicing your needs and interests.

Email Information

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

  1. Website Use Information

Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website and the websites visited just before and just after our website. We, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them. Please note that we cannot control how third party advertisers may use cookies.

How Do We Use Information You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing client services and making available other products and services to our clients and prospective clients. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services, as well as our news and event participation. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive this information. Your information will only be used for those purposes for which it was specifically collected.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Some of our business partners use cookies that originate from their sites. We have no access or control over those cookies. 

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you use our website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other users. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our website experience and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any further personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?

You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by emailing us.

Certain Disclosures

We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process served on us or affiliated parties; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, our site, the users of our site, and/or our affiliated parties; (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of our site, us, or third parties.

What About Other Websites Linked to Our Website?

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website nor the information or content contained therein. Often links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our website.

Please remember that when you use a link to go from our website to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link on our website, is subject to that website's own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

Your Consent

By accepting the website’s request to collect cookies or by providing your personal information in any other form or format available on this website, you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it.
