About Amigo! Communications Inc.
ACI (the "Company") is a Project Management and Value Added Reseller. Our mission is to provide products and services of the highest caliber for our customers and clients; to demonstrate our commitment to the communities we serve; and to enhance the value of the our services to our customers and clients by partnering with established businesses to deliver high quality and reliable solutions. The Site is owned by Amigo! Communications, Inc. (the "Owner").
We gather three types of information: private, communicative, and automatic.
Private to the site:
Private information is information that can personally identify you such as your real name, email address, telephone number, or credit card number.
When you register to use any Site service, you will be asked for some general identifying information to enable us to provide you with this and other services. We gather contact information (such as your email address and telephone number) and, if you choose to purchase a subscription, credits or other services, financial information (such as your credit card number and expiry date). Your email and telephone contact information is not visible to other users on our site, but will be utilized by our staff, or our agents to allow us to contact or better provide services to you. By supplying your contact information, you are also consenting to the Site, and our agents contacting you in order to provide details of how you may better utilize the services which you have selected to receive, and to provide information to you regarding other services they can offer. Until such time as you advise the Site differently, the email and telephone contact information (along with public information) will not be shared with other organizations, and thus protecting your interest for such marketing or other purposes.
As such, your provision of email and telephone contact information will NOT provide authorization for the usage and provision of that information (along with other public information): (i) to third parties preventing them to contact you for other marketing or commercial purposes as a result of information shared with ACI; and (ii) for the use of other third party organizations for other marketing or commercial purposes. If you do want us to contact you regarding third party products or services or share sharing your contact or public information with other companies or organizations, you can do so by changing your privacy preferences by sending a note to our customer care area releasing your rights to this privacy statement.
Financial information relating to credit card transactions may be processed by the Site via its third party intermediary/financial institution, or by a professional payment authorization service chosen for convenience, security and reliability. In either case, only the purchase price and the credit card information provided by the customer will be supplied, and such information will be maintained in the database for accounting and billing purposes. However, information from these credit card transactions is not released to other third parties. This information is encrypted via a secure server to ensure that others cannot read it. Once on the secure server your credit card information is sent to a third party intermediary for processing. You will know you are in secure mode when the tiny padlock icon - located at the bottom right of your browser - appears "locked". We will only use this financial information in the course of providing our service to you. Specific financial information we collect is not rented, sold, or shared with any third party without your express consent, except to the third party intermediary that processes your transaction or where required by law.
Communicative information is exclusive between the Site and parties involved in some form of communication through the Site. Information such as your internal messaging conversations, instant messages, email messages to our service personnel, submission of answers to surveys, and participation in contests are considered communicative information.
We store your messages for the purpose of our anonymous internal messaging system. Just like email, messages must be stored somewhere in order to deliver them.
We acquire information from our surveys so that we can better understand our members and continually improve our service.
Automatic information is information that we collect that is not personally identifiable such as your IP address, site usage and purchase behavior, browser type, browser activity, and browser settings.
We use your IP and/or Mac address to avoid fraudulent registrations, and monitor site usage demographics and dynamics. Information that we may obtain regarding your browser and browser settings may be used to ensure that our site's technical features are available to you.
Sharing of Information
Changing/Suspending/Removing your Information
The Site may share contact and demographic information with its advertising and marketing partners unless you have elected not to receive third-party offers and promotions. The Site makes an effort to provide you with ads and offers that you may find of interest and of some value. Nevertheless, it is the Site’s policy to allow you to make the choices about, and to control, the information the Site collects and the manner in which that information is used. For this reason, you always have the ability to update, change or delete information collected by the Site, to unsubscribe from any internal or third party mailing or telephone contact list at any time, and to opt out of receiving third-party ads, promotions and offers from the Site directly, and to opt out of further disclosure by the Site of contact information to third-parties for such purposes.
The Owner reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor all services used on the Site. This includes but is not limited to the materials posted in the public areas as well as the contents of communications transmitted while engaging in chat, email, or other means of communication. We limit the access to your personal information to employees who we believe need to come into contact with that information to provide services to you or to do their jobs.
The Owner shall have the right to remove any material that violates, or is alleged to violate, the law or our terms of usage. Information may be released when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with applicable law or to assist governmental or legal requests; (2) operate the service properly or enforce or apply the terms of any of our user terms, conditions and agreements; or (3) protect the rights, property or safety of our users and/or any third parties.
We have several different safeguards to protect your information, which include physical, technical (such as firewalls and industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions), and procedural methods. All of these comply with federal regulations and responsible business practices.
The Owner and its advertisers may use single-pixel gifs (also known as web bugs, web beacons, or tracking pixels) on the Site. The purpose of these single-pixel gifs is to verify and count web page accesses and gather some statistical information. These single-pixel gifs gather usage and demographic information, but do not gather any personal information.
To enhance your experience as a Site member, we send out message notifications, newsletters and site announcements, and from time to time offers that we feel may have something that will benefit you. Our site provides you with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving different types of communications (except system communications, or communications required for account maintenance), and each email that we send out has a method for opting-out located at the bottom of the message.
Opt-Out and CAN-SPAM Act
You may choose to provide our Site with your email address, personal information, or any other information for the purposes of opting-out of receiving email solicitations in respect of the Site. By this policy and at the point of collection, you agree that we may use and disclose that information for this purpose, in such manner as we deem appropriate. Such use and disclosure shall be carried out in order to allow compliance with our internal and Site policies, and to take all steps we deem necessary in order to ensure compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. As such, and without limiting the foregoing, email addresses or any other information you provide may be compiled into a suppression list or other database, and may be provided to third party publishers, advertisers or otherwise for the purposes “scrubbing” their own lists to ensure such third parties do not provide email solicitations in respect of the Site to opted out persons. However, the Site shall not be responsible for the consequences of any release, use or abuse of the information which has been provided to the third party in furtherance of the effecting the opt-out requests, whether such release, use or abuse by that third party was is in breach of any confidentiality agreements or otherwise.
By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services of third parties offered on the Site, or by participating in programs offered on the Site that are administered by third parties and that require you to submit financial information in order to use them, you also consent to our providing your financial information to those third parties. Additionally, if the page on which you submit information is a Co-Branded Page, or was accessed by clicking on a link on a Co-Branded Page, then we may share your financial information with the associated Co-Branded Company. Any of these various third parties may be authorized to use your financial information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which we are entitled to use and disclose any other information that you submit to us.
Any third party with whom we are allowed to share your personal information is authorized to use your personal information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions.
