We may disclose your information if necessary to protect our legal rights,
if the information relates to actual or threatened harmful conduct, or AdConnect
has good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the
requirements of law or comply with governmental orders, court orders, or
legal process served on AdConnect; or (2) to protect and defend the property
or rights of AdConnect, the users of its website or the public. This includes
exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection
and credit risk protection. If AdConnect should ever file for bankruptcy or
merge with another company, we may sell the information you provide to us
on the AdConnect.com website to a third party or share your personal information
with the company we merge with.
This site contains links to other sites, and this service enables links to
third party sites specified by Data Feeds in advertisements displayed on
CSP and Data Feed customer sites. AdConnect wants you to be aware that when
you click on links (including advertising banners), which take you to third-party
Web sites, you will be subject to such third parties' privacy policies. While
we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, we expressly disclaim
any and all liability for the actions of third parties, including without
limitation actions relating to the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information
by third parties.
From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses
not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices
change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web
site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt
out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used,
you should check back at our Web site periodically.
This site has security measures in place
to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information
under our control. We offer secure web pages to collect certain
kinds of user information and we store certain kinds of data
in encrypted form. We follow reasonable technical and management
practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity
of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely
secure, we believe the measures implemented by our web site reduce
the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to
the type of data involved. We always use industry-standard encryption
technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged
with our site.
The Internet is a vast network of computers.
Because the data passes from computer to computer, some Internet
shoppers worry that unauthorized persons may intercept the data
and gain access to credit card numbers, but shopping on a secure
site is actually safer than handing a credit card to a waiter
in a restaurant. Taking the steps below will lower the chances
of interception of your credit card number:
- Limit your online shopping to Internet merchants,
such as us, with sites equipped with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
technology. SSL prevents unauthorized people from intercepting
- Use a browser that supports SSL. These browsers
show a symbol in the status bar, such as a key or lock, when
you are on a site that uses SSL. Most banks will cover the cost
of fraud resulting from unauthorized use of your credit card
or may limit your liability.
Credit card information collected is encrypted
through Secure Sockets Layer before it is transmitted over the
