This policy concerns only the AEI Site and does not concern any website owned and operated by other parties to which the AEI Site may link. We are not responsible for and have no control over the privacy policies of those sites. Links on the AEI Site to other websites are provided only as a convenience and the inclusion of such links does not imply endorsement, recommendation or approval of the linked site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those sites to understand how your information is collected and used. Additionally, your Internet or other service provider(s) may collect information about or submitted by you while you use the AEI Site or any other website. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the operation, content, security or policies, including privacy policies, of any other website that is linked or linking to the AEI Site, and we shall have no liability to you or any other person or entity for the use of, or inability to use, any third party websites. You acknowledge that the information collection and privacy practices of any other party are not monitored or controlled by AEI.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect personal information about you (such as your name, title, address, telephone number or email address) that you provide voluntarily. For instance, if you choose to contact us through our “contact us” feature, we will collect your personal information so that we can respond to your inquiry.
WHAT OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The AEI Site (as well as HTML emails that we may send to AEI Site users) may use technical methods to collect data. The data we collect may include your IP address, which operating system and browser you use, how you navigate to and through our site, how long you stay on our web pages, and the websites you access immediately before and after your visit to the AEI Site. This information is generally anonymous and any use of such information will be on an aggregated basis.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We reserve the right to use any information we collect for reasonable business purposes and in any manner permitted by law, but will not disclose any personally identifiable information about you to anyone, except as permitted or required by law or regulation and to service providers as described below. For example, we may use the information we collect for our internal marketing, research and other business purposes, or to send you communications regarding AEI or features of the AEI Site, including changes to the AEI Site which may affect your access to or use of all or part of the AEI Site and/or the products and services available through the AEI Site.
We may also use and disclose your personal and non-personal information as necessary to our business advisors (e.g. attorneys, accountants and auditors), to law enforcement entities or self-regulatory groups (to the extent permitted or required by law, rule or regulation), to comply with federal, state or local laws, rules or regulations, to comply with subpoena or other judicial process, to respond to summons or other requests from authorized government authorities, or in connection with a proposed or actual sale, merger, transfer or exchange of all or a portion of AEI, any AEI subsidiary or affiliate, or any line of business associated with AEI.
We may share information you provide through the AEI Site with other companies that are controlled, owned or operated by AEI or AEI subsidiaries and affiliates. Such AEI subsidiaries and affiliates will not disclose your personal information for marketing purposes unless you consent to this use. We will not intentionally sell or rent your personal information to any unaffiliated third party for marketing purposes unless you consent to this use. However, we may provide unaffiliated third parties with aggregate non-personal information about visitors to the AEI Site (such as statistical information derived from personal information submitted by AEI Site visitors). Such aggregated information will not identify any particular visitor to the AEI Site.
AEI maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your nonpublic personal information in our possession or under our control. Please be aware, however, that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and the transmission of information and data via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we make an effort to protect your nonpublic personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information or data transmitted to or through our website; any transmission of information or data by you to or through this website is at your sole risk. We will not be responsible or liable for any damages, losses or causes of action arising out of or in connection with the disclosure of any information we collect.
This website is only intended for individuals who are at least 18 years of age. We do not knowingly encourage or solicit visitors to this website who are under the age of 18 or knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18 without parental consent. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from an individual under the age of 18, we will delete that information.
