Online Advertising and Tracking

Information Collection. When you browse an Accelebrate web site, you do so anonymously, and except as set forth herein Personal information is not collected. Some areas of our web sites, however, may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, including your name, email address or the like for purposes such as correspondence, site registration, making a purchase or participating in online surveys. In those instances, you may decline to provide your personal information, but as a result you may not have access to those features.  Accelebrate also may retain electronic communications you send to our customer service representatives, webmasters or other representatives or other associates or service providers as a means to continually improve customer service. Accelebrate web sites track information about visits to those sites. For example, statistics are compiled that show the daily requests received for particular files on a site, and what countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used to customize our web sites to better meet your needs and may also be provided to others. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. If you decline to accept the cookie, it will also disable the web beacon. With both cookies and web beacons, the information collected and used is anonymous. The information collected does not contain your name, address, telephone number or email address. Some functionalities of the Accelebrate sites may not function if you disable cookies and, in some instances, you may not be able to access or navigate our sites if cookies are disabled or limited.

Information Use. Accelebrate and third parties acting on Accelebrate’s behalf may use the information users give to us, for example, to process payments from you, to provide you with promotions and advertisements for our products and services, to measure consumer interest in our various products or to inform users about new products and programs. These offers may be based on information provided in surveys, information that may indicate purchasing preferences, or communications made to or through an Accelebrate site. Any lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and designed to protect the privacy and security of your personal information. Accelebrate will use reasonable efforts to address all requests to remove names from any postal mail or email lists.

Information We Share

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information about you, except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may share the personal information we collect with our parent, affiliate and subsidiary companies, business partners, ad network vendors and their participants, and other third parties for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, and to communicate with you about products and services, offers, events and promotions. We also may share personal information with our service providers who perform services on our behalf. These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. We require any company with which we may share Personal Information to protect that data in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and to limit the use of such Personal Information to the performance of services for Accelebrate.

We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (such as a court order), (ii) in response to a request by law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell, merge or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Following such a sale, merger or transfer, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the processing of that information.
