We will not notify you individually each time the privacy policy changes. We welcome and encourage your review of our privacy policy each time you visit us.

Collection of your Personal Information

ACE Group collects four types of information about our users: (1) User-supplied data; (2) Web server logs; (3) Cookies; and (4) Google Analytics data. We don’t share this information with others unless we say so in this Privacy Policy, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

The following provides additional details regarding the four types of information we collect and how we use them:

User-supplied information: When communicating with ACE Group through the contact form, we only require that you provide your name and e-mail address so that we may respond to your inquiry. Information you supply in the body of your message or in a file you may choose to upload (for example, a resume) could contain additional personally identifiable information (PII) (such as e-mail address, name, home or work address, or telephone number). Please do not submit through the contact form or through any uploaded file, any “Sensitive Information” such as confidential, proprietary, or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security Number; date of birth; driver’s license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for any consequences of your submission

Web server logs: When you visit our Web site, we may track information about your visit and store that information in Web server logs, which are records of the activities on our sites. The servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, the pages you viewed on the site, and referring Web site addresses.

The information we collect in Web server logs helps us administer the site, analyze its usage, maintain quality of the service, protect the Web site and its content from inappropriate use, and improve the user’s experience.

Cookies: The ACE Group Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ACE Group services or Web sites you visit.

Google Analytics: Ace Group uses the Web analytics tool Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors use our Web site. The information Google Analytics gathers and analyzes includes first-party cookies and IP addresses.

Furthermore, Google Analytics data will not be merged with any personal data already held by ACE Group.

Protection of your Personal Information

ACE Group secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those members of our firm who need to know that information to provide services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.

The information we have collected from you is stored on our company-leased servers and company-owned computers. We take certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will never be able to defeat our security measures.

Sensitive information is encrypted during transfer using established safety technology (SSL: Secure Socket Layer) and thereby protected from unauthorized access.

Based on use of its Web site, ACE Group will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ACE Group or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ACE Group; or, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ACE Group, or the public.

ACE Group does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.

For your convenience, this Web site may contain hyperlinks to Web sites and servers maintained by third parties. We do not control, evaluate, endorse or guarantee content found in those sites.
