NOTICE AND PURPOSE
Our website business objective is to deliver content that provides company background and informs you of the benefits of our products and services.

ORGANIZATION COLLECTING ALL DATA

TYPES OF DATA COLLECTION
AARM collects data from website users in two main ways:

  • E-mail sent to AARM from users
  • Automated means such as communications protocols and cookies

THE DATA COLLECTED AND HOW IT IS USED
AARM collects information from website users for the following purposes:

  • To respond to user inquiries and requests for information. This information includes user demographic and contact data and is used to fulfill the requests for sales literature, collaterals, newsletters, correspondence and specific requests generally related to company, product or service information.
  • To engage in communications. Name, address and e-mail information may be collected and stored as part of the transaction history. The majority of the information collected under this category is business contact information. AARM may need to share some of this information with third-parties to accomplish a relevant task.
  • To better respond to requests for service or quotes for professional services, AARM may forward contact information to the appropriate AARM associate for follow-up related to your request.
  • AARM may be legally required to provide personally identifiable information to comply with legally mandated reporting, disclosure or other legal process requirements. Such disclosure is not subject to opt-out.
  • The AARM Internet site may also provide links to non-AARM Internet sites we believe may be of interest to you. These sites are provided as a convenience and are beyond our control. You are strongly advised to check the privacy policies of those sites before providing your personal information.

OPT-OUT ELECTION
AARM recognizes that users may not wish to be contacted about new or existing products or services. AARM allows you to opt-out of e-mail marketing that may result from use of the site. These choices may be made from links in email mailings or by sending an email to unsubscribe@aarmusa.com and stating your opt-out intention in the subject or body of the email.

SECURITY
AARM is concerned with the security of the personal data we collect and has put in place reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access to that information. These measures include policies, procedures, and technical elements relating to data access controls. AARM uses standard security protocols and mechanisms to exchange the transmission of sensitive data. While we make every effort to ensure the security and integrity of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information.
