Information Collection and Usage
AIA collects information at several different points on our websites in order to better serve client and visitor needs. AIA is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. Under no circumstances will AIA sell, share or rent this information in any manner to any unaffiliated third parties.
AIA's website offers several opportunities for visitors to register for promotional and informational mailings, online webinars and resources, and for assistance in evaluating our products and services. These registration forms enable users to opt in to AIA's mailing lists and require users to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this contact information to send the requested information about our company, products and services. Notice is given at the point of collection to enable users to choose whether or not they consent to the usage terms. Those who have signed up and subsequently wish to withdraw their participation may opt-out of receiving future mailings at any time (see the opt-out section below).
All financial and billing information we collect is used solely to check credit qualifications of prospective clients and to invoice our clients for the purchase of AIA products and services.
Opt out and Update of Information
If an individual no longer wishes to subscribe to AIA newsletters and promotional communications, he or she can easily opt-out of receiving them by following instructions included in each newsletter or communication. If personally identifiable information changes, or if an email recipient no longer desires to receive specific mailings, he or she may correct, update or delete all information or specific details by sending an email to privacy@Nidec-Avtron.com.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA")
AIA will not knowingly accept any information from children under the age of 13. For any children under the age of 13, a parent or guardian will need to contact AIA to provide consent for any portion of the site that gathers personal information. We require our clients to comply with COPPA with respect to their use of AIA products.
Security and Privacy
AIA takes every precaution to protect the confidentiality and security of the personal information of website visitors and clients by using industry-standard security safeguards, such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures. These measures are designed to protect visitor and client information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration.
AIA's employees and its sub-contractors are trained and required to safeguard client and website visitor information. Using physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, we restrict access to such personal information to only those employees with a "need-to-know" for business purposes. Additionally, we conduct periodic audits (including via external security experts) to review the adequacy of our security procedures.
Automatic Collection of Anonymous Data
Following standard industry practice, AIA may use pixel tags and other methods to gather information about the emails it sends to registered website users and recipients of emails sent by the company's registered users to others. Pixel tags are tiny graphic files that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient's computer will access AIA's servers to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing AIA to record and store information such as email address, date and time the recipient viewed the email message, if the recipient's email program is capable of receiving HTML, and other login information. AIA uses this information to optimize delivery of future messages to specific recipients and to provide information to registered users with respect to emails they send through the AIA System.
AIA maintains log files tracking IP addresses to analyze trends, help diagnose problems with our servers, and to monitor traffic/usage in order to provide better service to our clients and website visitors.
"Sensitive information" is a subcategory of personal information. Sensitive information is defined as personal information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or the sex life of the individual. Sensitive information also includes personal information received from a third party where the third party treats and identifies it as sensitive.
Transfers of information permitted under this notice, either to third parties or within AIA, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, such as transfers to and from the United States of America. AIA will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
AIA conducts compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Policy. Any employee or sub-contractor that AIA determines is in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
AIA has a Privacy Manager who is responsible for the internal supervision of AIA privacy policies. AIA educates its employees about compliance with the privacy laws and has self-assessment procedures in place to ensure its compliance.
Disclosures and Transfers
AIA does not disclose personal information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
- We have the individual's permission to make the disclosure;
- The disclosure is permitted by law or mandatory professional standards;
- The disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business or assets;
- The personal information to be disclosed is publicly available;
- The party to whom the disclosure is made controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with AIA;
- The disclosure is reasonably necessary for the establishment or maintenance of legal claims; or
- The disclosure is to persons or entities for which we are providing or contracting services, provided the disclosure is consistent with the purpose for which the personal information was obtained.
It is possible that as we continue to develop our business, AIA may be acquired. In such a transaction, client information may be transferred to the acquiring entity. If, as a result of the business transition, the users' personally identifiable information will be used in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection, they will be given a choice consistent with our notification-of-changes section.
Links to other Web sites
AIA's website, or messages created by AIA, may contain links to other websites. AIA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites. Third parties may independently collect information about website visitors when visitors view ads or other communications from third parties' sites. If visitors do not want those companies to collect information about them, they should contact these companies directly.
