Advance Business Systems

Privacy Policy

What personally identifiable information does Advance Business Systems collect?
Prospective customers, partners and employees, as well as those seeking information about Advance Business Systems, may voluntarily submit information to Advance Business Systems by completing forms on various pages throughout the site. The required information on these forms is information that we need to contact these individuals, such as first and last name, company name, phone number, and e-mail address. These individuals may also voluntarily submit additional information that will help Advance Business Systems evaluate their needs, the services the user provides, or the user’s employment qualifications. If you contact us, we may also keep a record of that communication.
Who receives the information submitted?
When information is submitted through our website, it is immediately routed to the appropriate department within Advance Business Systems. For example, if you submit information on our “Careers” page, your information is routed to our personnel department. If an improper form is completed (i.e., if a potential client completes the partner information form), the information will be forwarded to the proper department within a reasonable time after the user’s error is discovered.
How does Advance Business Systems use information that you provide?
The information submitted to Advance Business Systems will only be used for internal purposes, except when necessary in our sole discretion to satisfy any law, regulation, governmental or judicial request, or to protect Advance Business Systems or its employees, clients or business partners. Otherwise, the information submitted will not be provided to any third parties. Advance Business Systems may retain copies of all information submitted to Advance Business Systems in either electronic or paper form, at its sole discretion. Advance Business Systems may also provide aggregated statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related website information to reputable third-party vendors and marketing companies, however these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

Advance Business Systems may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences. Advance Business Systems' website also uses cookies and web beacons. It does not track users when they cross to third party websites, does not provide targeted advertising to them, and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. We do not sell personal information or web forms to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of Advance Business Systems services.
A word of caution about security
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we attempt to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security.
What about privacy of children?
The Site is not intended for children under the age of 13 and we do not intend to collect information from any person under 13 years of age on the Site. Parents should not allow children to provide any such information. If we determine that a child has provided information in violation of this policy, we will delete that information as soon as practicable. If any parent or guardian becomes aware that any child has provided information, please send us an e-mail through the Contacts page so we can delete that information.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Although the information you submit to Advance Business Systems is not publicly available, you should use caution when submitting information in other online forums. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online in areas that are accessible to the public – for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online in these forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Additionally, you should be especially careful to monitor your child’s participation in chat areas or message boards, and should usually not let them disclose any personally identifiable information on such websites.

Third parties, such as our display advertising partner, Google Remarketing, then enables us to present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with and data collected through these cookies. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number. You can visit this page to opt out of Google Remarketing and its partners’ targeted advertising.
