Privacy Policy

A3review Principles

Here at A3review, we believe strongly in openness and trust. The more we trust each other by being open and honest, the more we all can benefit from our collective experiences. We hope this is reflected in our Privacy Policy below. We also believe our users are entitled to be in control of their Personal Data (as defined below), which is why we carry out all our processing operations in compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") and other applicable global privacy and data protection laws such as the European Union General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").

The Information We Collect

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (or household as applicable); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

When you visit A3review, you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us, and website use information collected by us as you interact with the A3review website. When you register with A3review, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name and email address. When you enter A3review, we may collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all A3review visitors but will be kept private and not used to track individual activity and only be used to deter spammers or otherwise improve the A3review experience. In addition, we may store information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We may use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. We may use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID and password, to make it easier for you to log in when you come back to A3review. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser, if you want to disable this convenience feature.

When you use A3review, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, post in forms, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so we can provide you with high-quality service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friends list. When you update information, we may keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.

You post all Posted Content (as defined in the A3review Terms of Use) the A3review website at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures for any website are impenetrable or 100% secure. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that Posted Content on the A3review website will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the A3review website. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of Posted Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your Posted Content.

Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on A3review is a violation of the A3review Terms of Service and should be reported to [email protected]

If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our website, we will ask you for your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend an email inviting him or her to visit the site. A3review stores this information to send this email, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at [email protected] to request that we remove this information from our database.

A3review also offers tools to help businesses collect reviews from their customers. In using these tools, a business may provide Personal Data about its customers such as names, emails, and order numbers.

Children Under Age 13

A3review does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for A3review or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on A3review. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at [email protected]

Children Between Ages of 13 and 18

We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Use of Information Obtained by A3review

When you register with A3review, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your first name, last initial and photo, are displayed to people in the A3review community to enable you to connect with people on A3review. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by A3review that we think you may find valuable.

Profile information is used by A3review primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service, and to be presented to others permitted by your privacy settings to view that information. In some cases, where your privacy settings permit it, other A3review users may be able to supplement your profile.

A3review reserves the right to send you notices about your account, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.

A3review may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We may do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in a particular network are interested in a certain business category, and personalizing advertisements and promotions. We believe this benefits you—by enabling us and others to provide information that’s more likely interesting to you individually. For example, if you indicated a favorite clothing brand in your profile, you may see an advertisement highlighting a business that sells similar clothing, based on your demographic profile. But we would not identify you individually to the business.

The information collected from businesses using A3review's review collection tools is used to send out customer feedback surveys, verify collected reviews, and allow businesses to address customer service issues.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

A3review does not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We only share your information with third parties in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is (1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, (2) legally required or, (3) specifically permitted by you. For example:

When you use A3review, certain information you post or share with third parties, such as personal information, posts, messages, photos, or other information, may be shared with other users; and all such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting text, messages, photos, or other items, this information may become publicly available. Your email address and full last name will be kept private unless otherwise noted.

Links

A3review may contain links to third party websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by A3review on the A3review website.

Your Data, Your Rights

You have a right to be informed of Personal Data processed by A3review, a right to correction, erasure and restriction of processing (subject to certain exemptions and other requirements prescribed by law). You also have the right to receive from A3review a structured, common and machine-readable format of Personal Data you provided to us.

To protect your privacy, we will take steps to verify your identity before fulfilling your request. We can only identify you via your email address and we can only adhere to your request and provide information if we have Personal Data about you through you having made contact with us directly and/or you using our site and/or services. We cannot provide, rectify or delete any Personal Data that we store on behalf of our users or customers.

To exercise any of the rights mentionined in thie Privacy Policy and/or in the event of questions or comments relating to the use of Personal Data you may contact A3review's privacy team at [email protected] or through the feedback form on our website.

Security

A3review takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security practices of A3review, please contact us at [email protected]
