Information Collection and Use
We do not disclose any non public personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. Non public, personal information includes any information about you that you or someone else has provided to us and that is not publicly available as well as information about your transactions with us. This includes:
Information we receive from a consumer-reporting agency.
Your account and payment history if you have previously purchased products from us.
Information we collect from you via the “My Account” portal.
We may, however, disclose certain information to government agencies, consumer-reporting agencies, and other outside parties as permitted or required by the Federal Privacy Act and other applicable laws. AlarMax Distributors is also committed to preventing others from gaining unauthorized access to your customer information, and we enforce our privacy policies through the use of processes, procedures, and technology specifically designed to ensure the confidentiality of your personal information. In addition, we restrict access to your information by our employees and agents for business purposes only. Agents may include third parties who help service your account or help provide our products and services to you. We may also enter into joint marketing arrangements with other parties to make you aware of products or services we think you might be interested in. We require any party who has access to your information to maintain the confidentiality of the information and not use it for their own purposes. If you specifically request us to provide non public personal information to anyone, such as mortgage companies or other lenders, we will provide the information only upon your written or verified email authorization.
Encrypted Data Transmission
This Web site secures your private information using a SSL Certificate. Information exchanged with any address beginning with "https" is encrypted using SSL before it is transmitted.
AlarMax Distributors uses Google Analytics to analyze traffic to this Web site in order to help us understand our customers' and visitors' needs and to continually improve our site for them. The data they collect on our behalf may include search engine referral, affiliate referrals, traffic driven by banner ads or other online promotions, how visitors navigate around the site, and the most popular pages. We also collect certain technical information, such as the browser version and operating system. Google Analytics collects only anonymous, aggregate statistics. For example, we do not tie a specific visit to a specific IP address and we do not correlate this tracking with personally identifiable information.
Assistance to Victim of Identity Theft
If you suspect that someone has had unauthorized access to your account with us or access to your personally identifiable information, you should report this crime to your local law enforcement agency and to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). To speak with a trained FTC telephone counselor, call toll-free 1-877-IDTheft (1-877-438-4338). Or, to enter information about your complaint into a secure FTC online database, visit www.consumer.gov/idtheft. The site also provides links to consumer education materials.
Ways to Limit Direct Marketing You May Receive from Outside Sources
There are outside agencies and companies that compile mailing lists for purchase by marketers. You may wish to have your name removed from many of these lists by following the procedures outlined below:
Direct Marketing Association and Member Companies
To remove your name and direct mail or tele-marketing lists of members of the Direct Marketing Association, send a written request with your name, address, and Social Security Number (if it was included in the mailing you received) to the Direct Marketing Association. The Direct Marketing Association is responsible for notifying its members (i.e., the agencies and companies that compile mailing lists) that you want your name removed from the lists they sell. Your name and address remains in their consumer exclusion files for five years. You must register yourself; they cannot process any request from us. You may visit their Web site at www.dmachoice.org.
Federal "Do Not Call" Registry
The FTC has implemented a Do Not Call Registry, effective October 1, 2003. To register for the Tele-marketing Do Not Call list, visit the FTC’s Web site at www.donotcall.gov.
