PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU

You can visit our website www.ai.associates without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we are asking certain Personal Information from you. You may choose to provide us with Personal Information (such as your name, email address, phone number and company name) through AI.Associates website when you elect to register with AI.Associates in order to download or access our products or services. Clients of our Advanced Analytics Service will be using our website to host data and information.

Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our Clients.

 

HOW WE USE THE COLLECTED INFORMATION

AI.Associates uses the collected information to set up the Advanced Analytics Service for individuals and their organizations. We may also use the information to contact customers to further discuss customer interest in our company, the Advanced Analytics Service that we provide, and updates and enhancements made to it, as well as to send information regarding our company’s or our partners’ offerings, such as promotions and events. We also use this information to administer our website, improve our Advanced Analytics Service and to communicate with our customers regarding account administration issues. Customer email addresses and any personal customer information will not be distributed or shared with third parties except for the purposes described above. Customers can opt out of receiving any marketing communication by changing their account settings, clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email, emailing us, or at the time the customer registers for the Advanced Analytics Service. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and customers.
