Information We Collect and Why
Personal information is information that, at the time of its disclosure, can either identify, describe or be associated with an individual, and includes: first and last name, a home or other address, an email address, a telephone number, social security number, occupation, personal or family affiliations, the kind of product or service purchased, and information pertaining to creditworthiness (“Personal Information”). ACA only collects personal information that you choose to share with us, such as when: (1) contacting us via the Site (including, but not limited to, the request for a product catalog); or (2) ordering products from the Site.
Automatically Tracked Information
The Site automatically tracks certain information, such as your domain name, browser type, and pages accessed, while visiting the Site. This information is aggregated in non-personally identifiable form and is used for marketing purposes and for monitoring the traffic our Site is generating. This gives us valuable information on which pages are visited most frequently, and which outside links are being utilized most. We use this data to improve the Site and your shopping experience. We do not monitor navigation patterns outside of our Site, but we do gather information on referral sites that send visitors to us.
Sharing Information with Affiliates and Service Providers
Subject to applicable law, we and our Service Providers (as defined below) may disclose your Personal Information:
• To unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on behalf of ACA (“Service Providers”), including, but not limited to delivery companies, third party fulfillment houses, and credit card processing partners. Service Providers are required to uphold and maintain policies with respect to privacy and the treatment of your Personal Information (e.g., vendors maintaining ACA’s computer databases, and providing credit card clearance for on-line purchases at the Site); and
• To other persons, including law enforcement officials, as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation.
Any access to such information will be limited to the purpose for which such information was provided to the affiliate, Service Provider or law enforcement official. In addition, federal, state and foreign laws give people with governmental, regulatory or supervisory responsibility, and those involved in lawsuits and other legal proceedings, the right under certain circumstances to obtain information from us, our affiliates and from our Service Providers, including your Personal Information. Subject to our professional standards, you should understand that ACA, our affiliates and Service Providers will comply with these laws to the extent we and they are required to do so.

In the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, or transfer of part of the business, trade or assets of ACA and/or any of its individual affiliates, all information, including without limitation, Personal Information collected about you via this Site may be sold, assigned, or transferred to the party acquiring all or substantially all of the equity or assets or business of ACA and/or our affiliates. Subject to your election to opt out as described below, by using this Site, you consent to the sale and transfer of your information as described in this paragraph.
