Some countries may provide less legal protection for customer personal information.

Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal identifying information to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers. It is AEC’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

5. Use of Computer Tracking Technologies
(a) No Tracking of Personal Information. AEC’s Web Site(s) are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Through web site access logs AEC does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.
(c) Use of Web Beacon Technologies. AEC may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor its Web site(s) to provide better customer service. If these technologies are in use, when a visitor accesses these pages of the Web site, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by AEC or by its suppliers. Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If customer does not want cookie information to be associated with customer’s visits to these pages, customer can set its browser to turn off cookies; however, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
(d) Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. AEC may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the AEC Web site(s) in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on AEC Web site(s); Web site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” AEC or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
(e) Collection of Personal Information. AEC collects personal identifying information from customer during a transaction. AEC may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help AEC understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
6. Information Security

Billing and payment data is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by staff designated to handle online requests or complaints.
