How Does ACE Collect Personal Information?
As is true of most websites, when you visit www.aceocp.com, we gather certain information automatically and store it in a log file. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) address, top level domain name (for example .com, .gov,. ca, etc.), date and time of visit to the site, Internet Service Provider (ISP), type of browser used, web pages accessed and documents downloaded. The information we gather is used to help us administer our website, monitor traffic, improve the website’s accessibility and navigability and gather general preferences.
Some of our email messages contain click-through URLs linked to specific content on our website. When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
Clear GIFs (a.k.a. beacons or tags) are tiny graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an email message. We may use Clear GIFs to tell us what parts of a website you have visited, to measure the effectiveness of searches you perform on our website or to determine if an email message has been opened. We may use this information to tailor our communications to meet your preferences.
SOFTWARE USAGE REPORTING
Upon installation of a licensed copy of software, we may collect Non-Personal Information. Non-Personal Information will be automatically combined with results gleaned from other users. The resulting statistics will help us identify trends and usage patterns (for example, what formats and processing facilities are used more than others), which in turn will help us focus our development efforts for future versions of software.
Upon installation of an evaluation copy of software, we may collect Non-Personal and Personal Information. This information may be combined to identify your preferences, troubleshoot problem areas and provide support and other marketing communications.
