ASU Privacy Statement
The ASU Group (“The ASU Group“) operates www.asugroup.com and may operate other websites. It is The ASU Group’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, The ASU Group collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The ASU Group’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The ASU Group’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The ASU Group may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The ASU Group also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.asugroup.com blogs/sites. The ASU Group only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The ASU Group’s websites choose to interact with The ASU Group in ways that require The ASU Group to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The ASU Group gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.asugroup.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The ASU Group are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The ASU Group collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The ASU Group. The ASU Group does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The ASU Group may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The ASU Group may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The ASU Group does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The ASU Group discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The ASU Group’s behalf or to provide services available at The ASU Group’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The ASU Group’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The ASU Group will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The ASU Group discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The ASU Group believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The ASU Group, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The ASU Group website and have supplied your email address, The ASU Group may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The ASU Group and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The ASU Group takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If The ASU Group, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The ASU Group goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The ASU Group may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
