This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for www.aecideas.com (the “Site”). This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this Site. It will notify you of the following:
What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the Site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Information We Collect
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Site – personal information and non-personal information. Personal information is any information that can individually identify you and includes your name, email address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Site and the internet.
There are a number of circumstances in which you may voluntarily supply us with your personal information. The following list contains the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information:
Registration for an account on the Site
Sign up to receive email newsletters or other information from us
Requests for customer service or other assistance
Participation in surveys, special events, and promotions
Purchases on the Site
Any other place on the Site where you knowingly volunteer personal information
When you interact with the Site, we may automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, “cookie” information, and the page you requested.
Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps, and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. We may use these technologies to also collect and store information about your usage of the Site, such as the content of your shopping cart, pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run, and advertisements you have seen.
We may work with third party advertising companies who may also utilize flash or enhanced cookies or web beacons to better provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. As a result, we may also deliver a file to you through the Site (known as a “web beacon”) from an advertising network partner. Web beacons allow advertising networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. These beacons may, for example, log that you have viewed a certain product on our Site, and then show you an ad for similar products when you browse to another website. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features, content, or personalization available through the Site.

We may contact you, by email or other means. For example, we may send you promotional offers or a newsletter. If you do not want to receive emails from us, please let us know through the “unsubscribe” feature included in our communications.

Our Disclosure of Information
We do not and will not sell your personal information to any third party outside of AEC, and will only share personal information as provided below and within our company.
We may make your information available to certain third party service providers, such as contractors, agents, or sponsors, who help us manage or provide the services offered on our Site, such as hosting, billing, marketing, analytics, customer service, fraud protection, etc. We may need to share your personal information with them, but we require that all of our service providers keep personal information confidential and not disclose it to third parties and not use it for any other purpose.
We may also use or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Site; (b) respond to requests from public and government authorities; (c) protect and defend our rights or property, the Site, or our users; and (d) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, or the users of the Site or the public.
Merger or Sale
If we sell all or part of our business or make a sale or transfer of our assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of our business, AEC may transfer your information to the party or parties involved as part of that transaction.
We are concerned about ensuring the security of your personal information. We use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information collected through the Site from access, loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction by any unauthorized party. Please understand, however, that while we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Children’s Online Privacy
AEC respects the privacy of children and we are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). This Site does not knowingly collect, solicit, use, or disclose personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Site or send any information about yourself to us. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to us. If we learn that a child under 13 has provided personal information to us without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information immediately.
We remind and encourage all parents to check and monitor their children’s online activities. Parents have the right to review and have deleted any personal information we may have inadvertently collected from their children, and refuse to permit further collection of that information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at email@example.com.
User Access and Control
If you would like to access, review, correct, update, suppress, or otherwise limit our use of your personal information you have previously provided to us, you may contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your request, please specify clearly what information you would like to access, change, update, or suppress. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
Links To or From Other Sites
Please note that the Site may link to other websites and online services operated by third parties. These websites and applications operate independently from us, and we do not control their privacy policies, which may be different from ours. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party websites or applications.
