Information We Collect and How We Collect It
“Personal Information” is nonpublic information about you that we obtain in connection with providing you with a financial product or service for your personal, family, or household purposes.
We currently do not collect Personal Information about you while using the Online Service unless you provide that information to us through the use of the “Contact Us” feature of the site. Our use of information provided to us through the “Contact Us” feature will be limited to contacting you unless you later allow us to use that information otherwise.
When we use the term “Collected Information” we mean information other than Personal Information that we (either directly or through our service providers) collect whenever you visit the Online Service or otherwise interact with us online.
For example, when you visit our website our systems, or those of our service providers, may automatically recognize the date and time of visits, the type of browser you use, the type of device you are using to visit our website, time spent on our web pages, and other limited data that we collect automatically.
Ascentris only collects country level location data when you visit our website, e.g., we collect information about what country you are visiting the website from but not what city or what street address.
How We Use Information
We use your information:
for administrative purposes,
to improve our services,
to contact you if you request such contact, and
for internal business purposes.
How We Share the Information We Collect
Our Service Providers
We share collected information with certain third-party service providers, such as Google Analytics, to:
operate the Online Service,
provide general statistics regarding the use of the Online Service,
analyze and develop our business strategy,
help improve our Online Service, and
for other limited purposes.
Law Enforcement and Legal Process
We may report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we believe to be unlawful. We may also report any activities that we believe may aid a law enforcement investigation into unlawful activity. We reserve the right to release your information obtained through the Online Service to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that the release of your information may protect the rights, property, or safety of Ascentris or another person.
Sharing Your Information as Permitted by Law
We may share your information collected through the Online Service with others as required by law. We may also share your information with others as permitted by law. This may include sharing your information with government entities or third-parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal process. We may also share your information if we believe it is necessary to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or to defend against possible legal claims that we determine might be brought against us.
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge or partner with other companies. If a portion or all of Ascentris’ assets are sold or transferred to a third-party, customer information collected through the Online Service would likely be one of the transferred business assets.
How We Secure Information
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to help keep information secure and to help prevent it from becoming disclosed to individuals who are not described in this policy. Even though we follow reasonable procedures to try to protect the information in our possession, no security system is perfect, and we cannot guaranty, and you should not expect, that your information will be secure in all circumstances.
How We Communicate With You
Your California Privacy Rights
We do not collect personal information through the Online Service for third parties’ marketing purposes.
Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers and devices allow you to broadcast a preference that your activities online not be “tracked”. At this time, the Online Service do not take action in response to “do not track” signals.
We do not provide products and services to children. We do not knowingly collect or solicit information from children under the age of 13.
