Absolute Standards reserves the right to disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; to protect Absolute Standards' rights or property; during emergencies when safety is at risk; or for credit fraud protection and risk reduction purposes.
While you are visiting our website, we may collect and use different types of information about you. This information is used only for fast and efficient rendering of our products and services to our customers. In addition, we may use your personal information to provide you with relevant information about the product or service that you are using.
We and our affiliated Third Parties may use the information that you provide to fulfill your request for a product, information, or other service, or respond to an email or other request. We do not share your credit card or other account information with unaffiliated Third Parties unless you authorize us to do so, or if it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities (such as delivering a product that you order or information that you request). You cannot opt-out of receiving communications from Absolute Standards (or Third Parties who may assist us) relating to a specific order or request for a product or information.
We and our affiliated Third Parties may also collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of this website, such as information regarding which of our pages are most popular. Information gathered may be used in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans.
In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation effective May 25th, 2018, we must disclose all personal data that is stored by Absolute Standards or its agents and affiliates:
A user's email address is a necessary component of any user account. The email address used to create the account is retained, as well as the user account's currently active email address.
IP Addresses are stored as a basic function of the website in connection with security. An IP address which identifies a user's session is only retained for the lifetime of the session. When an order is finalized on our site, the associated IP address is retained with the order for potential security reasons.
A billing and shipping address will be stored as part of current and future order fulfillment. This information is retained in reference to the associated user.
Absolute Standards collects payment method data in order to process orders. This information is not retained beyond what is necessary to complete a specific transaction unless you specifically opt to save your payment details as a future convenience. For your security, Absolute Standards never records your complete, usable, payment information; it is recorded on our behalf by our payment processor(s) in accordance with industry best practice, and a reference is stored on our servers. Absolute Standards records this reference in order to complete transactions and retain a history for bookkeeping purposes.
Absolute Standards affiliated Third Parties using cookies include the following:
Absolute Standards will remove collected personal data when a) the purpose for which it has been collected or otherwise processed has ended, or b) upon request of the data subject, with the exception of data we are required to retain by law. To request the removal of collected personal data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Absolute Standards uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced security protocol, to protect your personal information and ensure secure online ordering. SSL internet connections are encrypted, and thus protect all information, including your name, address and credit card number, so it cannot be read in transit. Absolute Standards uses secure technology, privacy protection controls, and restrictions on employee access, to safeguard your personal information.
Payment method data is encrypted by your web browser on your device before it is sent to Absolute Standards. Absolute Standards cannot decrypt the payment information and only relays the data to our payment processor(s), further protecting your payment information.
Absolute Standards relies on other companies and individuals to perform functions on behalf of Absolute Standards. Examples include data analysis firms, customer support specialists, and web hosting companies. Absolute Standards may share personally identifiable information with such Third Parties as appropriate for them to perform their functions, but they may not use such information for any other purpose.
