INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES
Collection of Personal Information
Personal Information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person and refers to any information that you voluntarily submit to us, including contact information (email, telephone number, address), financial data (such as credit card details) and other information about you and/or your business (“Personal Information”). In each case, you will be asked to provide such Personal Information – the Website will not gather it surreptitiously. We may supplement the Personal Information provided by you with additional Personal Information gathered from public sources or from third parties who may lawfully provide such information to us. You are under no obligation to provide Personal Information, with the caveat that if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.
When you create an on-line account, or sign up to our e-Newsletter, purchase a product, contact us or participate in an online survey or competition, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences and credit card information.
The Website may contain features, including without limitation, public profiles, chat rooms, forums, message boards and news groups that permit the Website user to upload, post, transmit, display, perform or distribute content, information or other, including Personal Information. Any information that you choose to disclose by means of such features becomes public information over which we are unable to exercise control. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose Personal Information by means of such features and agree to assume all responsibility for doing so.
Use of Personal Information
Other Disclosure. Except under the following circumstances, Atlantic will keep your Personal Information private and will not disclose it to third parties: (i) by operation of law, legal process, litigation and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence; (ii) if we determine that for the purposes of national security, law enforcement or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate; (iii) transfer to a successor organisation in the event of a merger, acquisition or bankruptcy or other sale of all or portion of Atlantic’s assets; and (iv) to strategic third party trusted partners that work with us to provide our products and services such as information processing, extending credit, providing customer service and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys; (v) if you fail to pay any balance owed in consideration of products and/or services provided to you by Atlantic, Atlantic may report your Personal Information, including without limitation, the unpaid balance and your personal contact details to consumer credit reporting services, collection agencies, legal advisers and others as may be necessary.
You agree that any data you provide to Atlantic will be true, complete and accurate in all respects and you agree to notify us immediately of any changes to it.
If you are aged 16 or under, you must get your parent or guardian's consent to provide your Personal Information to the Website, otherwise you are not allowed to provide any of your Personal Information to Atlantic.
Security of your Personal Information
Atlantic has implemented and maintains reasonable security procedures and practices to protect against unauthorised access, use, modification, destruction or disclosure of your Personal Information.
Atlantic stores User’s data on secure servers, protected from unauthorised use or disclosure. Personal Information may be transferred within the European Economic Area (EEA). Your Personal Information may also be processed by staff operating outside of the EEA, who work for the Company, or for one of its suppliers. By submitting your Personal Information, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. Atlantic will take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Atlantic uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect Personal Information from unauthorised access and use. As effective as modern security practices are, no physical or electronic security system is entirely secure. Atlantic cannot guarantee the complete security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Any transmission of data, therefore is at User’s own risk
Retention of Personal Information
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
Like most websites, our Website automatically gathers information of the sort that browsers automatically make available, including (i) IP addresses; (ii) domain servers; (iii) types of computers accessing the Website; and (iv) types of Web browsers accessing the Website (collecting “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not on its own, personally identify the User or permit direct association with any specific individual. If we do combine Traffic Data with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for so long as it remains combined. We may collect, use, transfer and disclose Traffic Data for any purpose. The following are some examples of Traffic Data that we may collect and how we may use it:
- We may collect information such as occupation, language, area code, referrer URL, location and time zone so that we can better understand customer behaviours and improve our products, services and advertising.
- We may collect and store details of how you use our Website, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services.
