In General. While A&B does not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information in order to visit and use the A&B Websites, please note that in order to participate in some activities, such as sweepstakes, contests and other promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) and chat rooms or bulletin boards, we may ask you to provide information that could reasonably be used to contact you or to identify you personally (such as first and last name, e-mail address, mailing address and telephone number) (“Personal Information“). We may also ask you to provide other information about yourself, such as demographic information (such as gender, geographic region, age, etc.) or certain information about your preferences and interests. If you choose not to provide such Personal Information or other information to us, you may not be able to participate in certain activities we offer. If we combine demographic or other information we collect about you with Personal Information about you, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.
Individuals Under 13. The A&B Websites are open to all individuals, though some Promotions may have age restrictions. We do not knowingly collect or permit the collection, storage or use of any Personal Information from anyone under 13. If you are a parent or guardian who knows or has discovered that your child under the age of 13 has submitted his or her Personal Information or other information without your consent, permission or authorization, upon request, we will promptly: (a) provide direct notice to you indicating what, if any, Personal Information of your child has been collected and how it has been used and/or disclosed; (b) remove your child’s Personal Information or other information from our database, cease the use of such information and direct any other party with access to such information to do the same; and (c) by notice to you, confirm compliance with the foregoing.
For Promotions. We may offer opportunities to enter into Promotions that we offer, on our own or jointly with a third party. Such Promotions may require registration and the disclosure of both Personal Information and non-Personal Information. In the event that a Promotion is offered jointly with a third party, as a result of your participation in such Promotion, your Personal Information and non-Personal Information may be shared with such third party, which sharing we will disclose to you at the time you provide your information. By entering a Promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor and/or other third parties connected to the Promotion to use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising and marketing materials. Therefore, always carefully read the rules of the Promotion before entering.
In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to provide to us via the A&B Websites, whenever you visit or interact with the A&B Websites, A&B automatically collects certain information such as your IP address and/or another unique identifier (“Device Identifier“) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (“Device“) you use to access the A&B Websites and any referring website. (A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers. Our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier.) Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Websites.
In addition, A&B, as well as certain third-party analytics and other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how you use the A&B Websites (“Usage Information“). Usage Information may include, in part, browser type, operating system, the page served, the time at which a page was accessed and/or the time spent on a page, and the preceding pages views. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if A&B associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we will treat it as Personal Information.
The technologies used on the A&B Websites to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, may include:
Cookies. “Cookies” (which may be html files, Flash files or other technology) are small text files that help store user preferences and activity. A Cookie is placed on a Device when it is used to visit the A&B Websites or otherwise access our online offerings. Cookies may be used for many purposes, such as remembering you and your preferences, tracking your visits to our web pages and customizing your A&B Website experience. If you choose to disable cookies on your Device, some features of our Websites or our online offerings may not function properly.
Web Beacons. “Web beacons” (also known as image tags, pixel tags, GIFS or web bugs) are small pieces of code used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the A&B Websites, to monitor how users navigate the A&B Websites, to count how many sent e-mails were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts . An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the A&B Websites, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Websites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Functionality on the A&B Websites may permit interactions between such A&B Websites and a third-party website, such as enabling you to “like” a product or “share” content to third-party websites. If you choose to “like” or “share” content or to otherwise post information from or via the A&B Websites to a third-party website, feature or application, that information may become public and the third-party web site may have access to information about you and your use of the A&B Websites.
You may also choose to participate in a third party application or feature (such as one of our Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party website) through which you allow us to collect and share (or the third party to share) information about you, including Personal Information. The third party may allow you to remove the application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third-party website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their “connections,” or if information about you is otherwise accessible through your “connections” web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third-party website or interactive service.
A&B will use the information it collects, including your Personal Information:
We may also use the information we collect to improve the A&B Websites and our products and services, for internal business purposes, and to contact you with regard to your use of the A&B Websites and, in our discretion, changes to any of our policies.
Non-Personal Information. We may share non-Personal Information, such as aggregate user statistics, demographic information, and Usage Information with third parties for a variety of purposes, including tailoring promotions, advertising and communications we present to you.
Personal Information. We may also share your Personal Information, as specifically disclosed at the time you provide your Personal Information and in the following circumstances:
To Affiliates, Other A&B Companies and Third-Parties.
To Third-Party Service Providers Providing Services On A&B’s Behalf. We may from time to time employ third parties to perform functions on our behalf, and thus, we may also share your Personal Information with third party service providers that assist us with providing content, fulfilling your requests, improving our products, content, services or advertising, or otherwise performing services for A&B. As one example, if you access content or services that are published, developed or supported by an Affiliate or third party, your Personal Information may be shared with that Affiliate or third party for purposes related to that content or those services, including service administration and/or development. Additionally, we may share your information in order to host or operate the A&B Websites, for data analysis purposes, and for the administration of Promotions, such as in connection with winner selection and prize fulfillment.
Business Transactions. We may share your Personal Information with other entities affiliated with us for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes including any corporate reorganization, restructuring or other corporate change. In addition, A&B or any of its assets, including the A&B Websites, may be sold, or other transactions may occur in which your Personal Information is one of the key business assets in the transaction. In such a case, your Personal Information may be one of the business assets we transfer. Hence, A&B reserves the right to disclose and transfer user information, including Personal Information, in connection with any activity and/or transaction described above.
Legal Protections and Law Enforcement. We may transfer and disclose information, including your Personal Information, Usage Information and Device Identifier (including IP address), to third parties: (i) to comply with legal obligations; (ii) when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; (iii) at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; (iv) to verify or enforce our Terms & Conditions or other applicable policies; (v) to respond to an emergency; or (vi) to otherwise protect the rights, property, safety or security of third parties, visitors to the A&B Websites or the public. We may also use Device Identifiers to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with copyright owners, Internet service providers, wireless service providers or law enforcement agencies, in our discretion. Such disclosures may be carried out without notice to you.
The A&B Websites may contain links to other websites that are operated and controlled by third parties that we do not control. This includes links of advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding agreement. In addition, A&B content or widgets may be included on web pages and websites that are not associated with us and over which we have no control. These other websites may send their own cookies to your Device, and they may independently collect data or solicit Personal Information. A link from any A&B Website to any other website does not mean that A&B approves of, endorses, or recommends that website. A&B provides such links for your convenience and is not responsible for the content of any website linked to or from any A&B Website. Moreover, A&B is not responsible for the privacy practices of any third party, and it disclaims all warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy, legality, reliability, or validity of any content on any other website.
A&B uses commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information, and we use reasonable efforts to obtain the agreement of our Affiliates and third-party service providers to take steps to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of Personal Information we share with them. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% private and secure. Please be careful to avoid ‘phishing’ scams, where someone may send you an e-mail that looks like it is from A&B asking for your Personal Information. A&B will never request your Personal Information through e-mail. You understand that any message or information you send to a A&B Website may be read or intercepted by others. A&B does not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the A&B Websites and provide us with your information at your own risk.
The A&B Websites are operated in CANADA. If you are located in the European Union, USA or elsewhere outside of CANADA please be aware that information we collect will be transferred to and processed in CANADA. By using the A&B Websites, or providing us with any information, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to this transfer, processing and storage of your information in CANADA, a jurisdiction in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.
