Cookie Policy

Cookies
A cookie is a tiny text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record keeping purposes. It contains a unique identifier, as well as the address and other information about the website you are visiting. We use cookies on the Website. We link the information we store in cookies to personally identifiable information that you submit while on the Website. We may use both session ID cookies (a cookie that expires when a browser is closed) and persistent cookies (a cookie that remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time). Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on the Website. You can remove the persistent cookies by following the directions provided in your internet browser’s “help” file. If you reject cookies, you can still use the Website but your ability to use particular areas of the Website will be limited.
What types of cookies and other technologies do we use on the Website?
The types of cookies and similar technologies used by us and our partners in connection with the Website can be classified into one of five categories, namely ‘essential cookies’, ‘functionality cookies’, ‘analytics cookies’, ‘advertising cookies’, and ‘ social networking cookies’. Cookies do a lot of different tasks to ensure you enjoy your visit to our Website, for example, they are used to remember your preferences on our Website, to help you navigate between pages more efficiently, to enable you to log into your account more easily and to make sure the adverts you see on our Website are relevant to you and your interests. We have set out some further information about each category, and the purposes of the cookies we and third parties set in the following table.
You can block these cookies and similar technologies by changing your browser setting. However, in relation to those that are essential for the operation or improve the functionality of the Website, this may impact your use of the Website.
Type: Essential Cookies
These cookies are essential to provide you with the Website and any services available through this Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. As the name implies, these cookies are essential to the functionality of the Website and cannot be disabled by users.
Type: Functionality Cookies
Functionality cookies record information about choices you’ve made and allow us to improve your browsing experience. These cookies allow us to remember the choices you made on our Website and to provide enhanced and more personalized features, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and saving your location preference if you have a location on your homepage.
Type: Analytics Cookies
We use analytics cookies to analyze how the Website is accessed, used, or is performing in order to provide you with a better user experience and to maintain, operate and continually improve the Website. These cookies permit us to determine the number of unique visitors to the Website, collect information about visitors (such as their locations) and test design ideas for particular webpages.
We use Google Analytics, which is a web analytics tool that helps us understand how users engage with the Website. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions, as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our site. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our Website. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors. For more information on Google Analytics, see here. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit this Google page: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Type: Targeting or Advertising Cookies
We and our service providers may use targeting or advertising cookies to deliver ads to you. These cookies enable such companies to track your activity across various sites where they display ads and record your activities so they can show ads that they consider relevant to you as you browse the Internet.
These cookies remember whether you have seen an ad or a type of ad, and how long it has been since you’ve last seen it. This information is used for frequency capping purposes, to help tailor the ads you see, and to measure the effectiveness of ads.
We can use information from one device to help personalize your experience on another device.
Other Cookies and Technologies
In addition to the cookies we use on this website, we also use cookies and similar technologies in some emails, social media posts and push notifications and other communications which enable us to understand whether you have opened the email and how you have interacted with it. If you have enabled images, cookies will also be set on your computer or mobile device and will also be set if you click on any link within the email.
We may employ a software technology called tracking pixels (a/k/a web beacons/web bugs/clear gifs) that enables us to better manage the content on the Website by informing us what content is effective. Tracking pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of visitors to a website. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, tracking pixels are embedded invisibly on website pages and are about the size of the period at the end of a sentence. We will not tie the information gathered by tracking pixels to your personally identifiable information.
We may use tracking pixels in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
As is true of most websites, we gather information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to track the movements of users around the Website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Do-Not-Track

Some web browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites. Because the standards for these signals are still under development, we currently do not take action in response to these signals.

Security

We use various technical and organizational mechanisms to secure our websites.  You should understand that no data storage system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information within industry standards, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of your personally identifiable information. Our security procedures mean that we will occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. You are responsible for protecting against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer/mobile device. If you have an account, we ask you not to share your password with anyone. Furthermore, you are responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the Website through your internet connection are aware of this Privacy Policy and comply with them in all respects.
Our employees are trained and required to safeguard your information. Our internal controls limit access to personally identifiable information based on job functionality and other criteria.

Opting out

To opt out of our marketing list, use the following tools:
If you want to be removed from our marketing list and do not want us to send you email, postal mail or other messages about our products and services, you can opt out. To do so, please send an email to info@acqu.co, with the word “REMOVE” in the subject line.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of such residents’ personal information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please email us at info@acqu.co.
To opt out of third-party tracking on our Website, use the following tools:
You can opt out of the Ad Tech Network by clicking http://www.youronlinechoices.com/opt-out-interface.
If you would like to opt out of having interest-based information collected during your visits to our Website or other sites, both the National Advertising Initiative (the “NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (the “DAA”) offer opt out tools to assist you in managing your choices. Click http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ to visit the NAI opt out page and click http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ for the DAA opt out page.
You can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/ to learn more about interest-based advertising and your choices regarding having this information used by third parties and your “opt out” choices. Opting out through the DAA or the NAI only means that those DAA or NAI members will no longer be able to deliver targeted content and/or ads to you, which will affect our Website as well as other unaffiliated websites, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt out pages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your opt out choices could not (or could no longer) be effective.

Data retention

We will retain your information as long as needed to enable you to access the Website or otherwise interact with you, and for as long as you or we can bring a legal claim. After you have terminated your use of our Services, we may store your information in an aggregated and anonymized format.

Changes to Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy as necessary to reflect changes we make and to satisfy legal requirements. We will post a prominent notice of material changes on our Website and/or may send the notice by email. Any modifications to this Privacy Policy will be effective upon our posting the new terms. Your continued use of the Website or other Services after the posting of any modified Privacy Policy indicates your consent to all changes to the modified Privacy Policy.

Additional information for California residents

This section applies to California residents only. For purposes of this section, “Personal Information” has the meaning given in the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) but does not include information exempted from the scope of the CCPA.
The CCPA permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year at no cost, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year.
The CCPA has defined a “sale” to include any transfer of personal information by us to another entity for anything of value. We have not disclosed or sold any personal information to third parties for a business or commercial purpose in the preceding 12 months. We will not sell personal information in the future belonging to website visitors, users and other consumers.
The Website was intended for businesses and not intended for personal or household use. We treat all personal information about any visitors to our Website as pertaining to individuals acting as business representatives, rather than in their personal capacity.
The CCPA grants individuals who are California residents the following privacy rights:
  • Right to Access/Know. You may request from us a list of: (i) the personal information that we have collected about you; (ii) the categories of third parties to whom we have disclosed your personal information; and (iii) the categories of third parties to whom we have sold your personal information.
  • Right to delete your personal information. You may request to delete your account and your personal information.
  • Right to opt-out from the sale of your personal information. You may request, at any time, to direct us to stop “selling” (for the purposes of the CCPA) your personal information. We do not sell your personal information.
As applicable under the CCPA, if you are a California resident, you may make requests to us as set out above. We will review all requests received and determine the extent to which and how to respond. We will not discriminate against any California resident who makes such requests.
You may contact us to make the requests described above by contacting us as indicated above in the Contact Us section. We will not use the information you provide as part of your request for any other purpose other than to fulfill your request.
You may also submit such requests through an authorized agent. To designate an authorized agent, please send us a notarized power of attorney / notarized letter authorizing said agent. Requests from agents that do not submit such proof that they have been authorized by you to act on their behalf will be denied.
To ensure the privacy and protection of individuals, we are required to verify or otherwise authenticate your request(s). We will upon receipt of your communication ask you to verify your identity and confirm your request with respect to your personal information; we will use the information you submit to verify your request prior to completing your request.
