Collection of personal information
AvGround collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, address or telephone number. AvGround also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by AvGround.

This information is used by AvGround for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the AvGround web site.
Security of personal information
AvGround secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. AvGround secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Use of personal information
AvGround collects and uses your personal information to operate the AvGround web site and deliver the services you have requested. AvGround also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from AvGround and its affiliates. AvGround may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
AvGround does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. AvGround may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail address, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.
In addition, AvGround may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you e-mail or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to AvGround.
AvGround keeps track of the web sites and pages our customers visit within AvGround, in order to determine what AvGround services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within AvGround to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
AvGround web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AvGround or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AvGround; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of AvGround, or the public.
The AvGround web site uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize AvGround pages, or register with AvGround site or services, a cookie helps AvGround to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on.
When you return to the AvGround web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the AvGround features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the AvGround services or web sites you visit.
AvGround welcomes your comments regarding this privacy statement. If you believe that AvGround has not adhered to this statement, please contact AvGround at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
