“Personal Information” is any information that is identifiable with you, as an individual. This information may include (but is not limited to) your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, business facsimile number, age and employment history. Personal Information, however, does not include your name, business title or business address and business telephone number in your capacity as an employee of an organization.
We have implemented commercially reasonable physical, organizational, contractual and technological security measures to protect your Personal Information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. These security measures are proportionate to the amount and nature of the Personal Information collected. The only employees who are granted access to your Personal Information, are those with a business ‘need-to-know’ or whose duties reasonably require them to have access to such information.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will always collect your Personal Information by fair and lawful means (for example, when you enter information on ABG websites or during off-line contacts we may have with you). We may collect Personal Information from you directly and/or from third parties, where we have obtained your consent to do so or as otherwise required or permitted by law. As a result, information may be collected by your use of the ABG websites, including (but not limited to) sending us e-mails; completing surveys; and submitting employment applications.
Furthermore, when you browse ABG websites, you and your web browser may also transmit information that ABG automatically collects. This information may be combined with other Personal Information you have provided. The only other type of information automatically provided to ABG is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which ABG may use to improve the performance of its website or for other similar technical or performance-related purposes.
Your Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we have affiliates, facilities or in which we engage service providers. By using our websites, you understand that your information may be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country.
