AC Tool PRIVACY POLICY

Effective: MAY 25, 2018.

Revised: June 17, 2018

WELCOME TO AC Tool!

AC Tool provides a online support platform via the AC Tool website (the “Site”), the AC Tool application (the “App”) and it's derived applications AC Tool Forums (the "Forums"). The Forums is operated by Michel Hagin, aka The WABBIT, (the “Developer”, “we” or “us”) for users of the Forums (“you”). This Privacy Policy sets forth our policy with respect to information that is collected from visitors to the Site and users of the App and/or the Forums. Under applicable law, Michael Hagin, aka The WABBIT, is the “data controller” of personal data collected through the Forums.
 
INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you interact with us through the Forums, we may collect information from you, as further described below:

Information You Provide: We collect information from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you register for access to the Forums. Information we collect may include but not be limited to username, email address, and any messages, images, or other content you send via the file upload feature, or other personal information entered into "Your Profile" of the services.

OTHER INFORMATION:

  • Data We Collect Automatically: When you interact with us through the Forums, we receive and store certain information such as an IP address and your activities within the Forums. We may store such information or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by service providers. The Forums may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of posts users have made.
  • Cookies: We employ cookies and similar technologies to keep track of your local computer’s settings such as which account you have logged into and notification settings. Cookies are pieces of data that sites and services can set on your browser or device that can be read on future visits. We may expand our use of cookies to save additional data as new features are added to the Forums.

Our Forums currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operate as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received, as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance.
 
WHERE INFORMATION IS PROCESSED

The Developer is based in the United States. No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing and transferring of your information in and to the U.S. and other countries. The laws of the U.S. and other countries governing data collection and use may not be as comprehensive or protective as the laws of the country where you live.
 
OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We use the information you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide information for a certain reason, we may use the information in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide information in order to obtain access to the Forums, we will use your information to provide you with access to the forums, to monitor your use of the forums, and to send out certain notifications of our Services. The Developer may also use your information collected through the Forums to help us improve the content and functionality of the Forums, to better understand our users and to improve the Forums.
 
OUR LEGAL BASES FOR HANDLING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows:

  • To honor our contractual commitments to you: Much of our processing of personal data is to meet our contractual obligations to our users, or to take steps at users’ request in anticipation of entering into a contract with them. For example, we handle personal data on this basis to create your Forums account.
  • Legitimate interests: In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals: This includes: Providing a safe and enjoyable user experience;
    • Customer service;
    • Notifications, e.g. sending emails or other communications to let you know about new posts or updates to the forums or new products;
    • Protecting our users, personnel, and property;
    • Managing legal issues.
  • Legal compliance: We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
  • To protect the vital interests of the individual or others: For example, we may collect or share personal data to help resolve an urgent medical situation.
  • Consent: Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of your implied or express consent.

OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

The Developer is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your information with certain third parties, as set forth below:

- Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, bankruptcy, dissolution or similar event, your information may be part of the transferred assets.
- Consent: We may transfer your information with your consent.
- Legal Requirements: We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of the Company or Related Companies, (iii) protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.


UNSOLICITED INFORMATION
