Privacy Policy

Effective Date: January 1, 2020 Deutsch Inc. dba AEROPRO® (“AEROPRO”) values the privacy of individuals whose personal information we receive on our websites and by other means during our relationship with you. This privacy policy explains what personal information AEROPRO collects from you, why we collect it and what we do with it. This privacy policy is incorporated into and subject to the AEROPRO Terms of Service. By providing your personal information to us, you consent to the information handling practices described in this privacy policy. We encourage you to read the Section 3 titled “Your Choices” below to understand the options you have with regard to your personal information.

1. Websites Covered

This privacy policy covers the information practices of websites that link to this privacy policy, including but not limited to www.aeropro.eco.. Our websites may contain links to websites operated by third parties, and AEROPRO is not responsible for the privacy practices of these websites.

2. Information We Collect

We collect the following data: (1) information you voluntarily submit to us (“User-Supplied Information”); (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to AEROPRO websites (“Passive Data Collection”); and (3) information from third party sources. User-Supplied Information: We may collect the personal information you provide to AEROPRO on our websites, by phone, email, mail, in person, when you communicate with us via social media or by any other means of interacting with our company. Passive Data Collection: Like most websites, we automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser when you use AEROPRO websites. We may use a variety of methods to collect this information, including “cookies” or “web beacons”. For details about the technologies we use and how they operate, please see our Cookie Policy below. If we directly combine any information gathered through passive means with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information under this privacy policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in aggregated forms. Third Party Source: We may obtain information from industry partners and other sources, including publicly available sources such as business registries. AEROPRO requires these sources to comply with applicable laws with regard to collecting and transferring this data to us.

3. Your Choices And Rights

You may choose not to provide personal information to us. However, you may not be able to enjoy full use of AEROPRO websites if you choose not to provide your personal information. You may choose to “opt out” of our use of personal information you feel is incompatible with the purposes for which it was originally collected or authorized by you by contacting us by email or by postal mail at the address shown in “Contact Us” section below. In accordance with applicable data privacy laws, you may have the right to be provided with a copy of your personal information held by us; the right to request the rectification or erasure of your personal information held by us; to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information or object to the further processing of your personal information; and, where the processing of your personal information by us is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent without detriment at any time. You may exercise these rights by contacting AEROPRO by email or postal mail in the addresses shown in the “Contact Us” section below.

4. Use Of Collected Information

AEROPRO uses personal information to establish and enhance our relationship with you. We may use personal information to (a) operate, provide, improve, and maintain the AEROPRO websites; (b) to prevent abusive and fraudulent use of those websites; (c) to personalize and display content on the AEROPRO websites; (d) to respond to your inquiries and for other customer service purposes; (e) where permitted by applicable law, to send you information, including via email, about our products and services in which we believe you may be interested; and (f) for administrative, operational and internal business purposes. We may also use data collected on the AEROPRO websites to remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit, and to monitor aggregate website usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed. Analytics We use Google Analytics to analyze our users’ use of AEROPRO websites. Google Analytics provides us with aggregated data in order to help us make informed business decisions. Google, as a third party, ultimately controls information collected through Google Analytics. Prior to using AEROPRO websites you should be comfortable with Google’s privacy policies with respect to Google Analytics. Communications We may send you administrative messages and updates regarding your account, updates regarding the AEROPRO websites, and, where permitted by applicable law, information regarding our products and services including, without limitation, through social media updates, by email and postal mail. If you no longer want to receive unsolicited commercial email messages from us, you may indicate your preferences by taking the steps described in such messages. Also, you may indicate your preferences regarding commercial email messages and postal mail messages by contacting us using the information in the “Contact Us” section below. Third-Party Ad Networks We use third parties to assist us in displaying advertisements on third party websites, and to evaluate the success of our advertising campaigns. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to our website as well as other websites. This enables us, and these third parties, to target advertisements by displaying ads for products and services in which you might be interested. Third party ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content to you. These third party cookies and other technologies are governed by each third party’s specific privacy policy, not this one. We may provide these third-party advertisers with information about your usage of our websites, as well as aggregate information about visitors to our websites. You may opt out of many third-party ad networks, including those operated by members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and companies participating through the Digital Advertising Alliance in the US, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada, or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe. Please note that if your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit an opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt-out may no longer be effective. Ad blockers may also interfere with these controls.

5. Disclosure Of Collected Information

We do not sell or rent email addresses and other personal information that we collect. Please be aware, however, that any information you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of the AEROPRO websites may be collected and used by us or others without restriction. We share your personal information as follows: Service Provider We may provide personal information to third parties for their use in performing business functions on our behalf, for example maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, customer relationship management, database services, email marketing, surveys, or data hosting. We require such third parties to agree to only use your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy and for no other purpose than to provide us with necessary services. Legal Requirements We may disclose personal information if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose personal information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of the AEROPRO Terms of Service or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect the rights, property, or safety of AEROPRO, any individual, or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our websites or infrastructure; protect ourselves from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or assist government enforcement agencies.

6. International Users

AEROPRO websites are hosted in the United States, and we may use service providers in the United States and elsewhere to process personal information on our behalf. If you use the AEROPRO Websites outside the U.S. please note that your personal data may be transferred outside of your home jurisdiction to the United States and to other jurisdictions where our service providers are located. Some of these jurisdictions, including the United States, do not have equivalent data protection laws as the European Union and other jurisdictions. By using our websites, you are agreeing that your personal data may be transferred to the United States and other jurisdictions, as explained in this section.

7. Security

The security of your information is important to us. We use reasonable security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control, both during transmission and once we receive it. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of firewalls and encryption. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such personal information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. If we learn of a security breach involving your personal information, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using AEROPRO websites or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the AEROPRO websites. If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on the AEROPRO websites and may send email to you at the address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach, involving your personal information, in writing.

8. How Long We Keep Your Information

We will retain personal information for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you; the length of time that lets us understand how people use our websites and the impact of marketing offers we make; whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; and whether the retention is advisable considering our legal position such as, for example, statutes of limitations or regulatory investigations. We may continue to store anonymous or pseudonymous information, such as website visits, without identifiers, in order to improve our services. Please be aware that even if you update or remove personal information you provided to us, your personal information may be retained in our backup files and archives for a reasonable period of time for legal purposes.

9. Updates to This Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this privacy policy. If we do, we will change the “effective date” at the top of the privacy policy. Before making any update that would make this privacy policy materially less restrictive in our use or disclosure of personal information collected prior to the update, we will provide prior notice of the update by posting notice on our website at the top or bottom of the then-current privacy policy. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy policy to stay informed about our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information. Your continued use of our websites constitutes your agreement to our then-current privacy policy.

Cookie Policy

Effective Date: January 1, 2020 Like most web based services, AEROPRO may automatically receive and record information when you use our websites using a variety of methods that may include “cookies” and “web beacons” to collect this information. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience. This Cookie Policy aims to inform you about our use of such cookies and beacons, but does not govern the use of AEROPRO websites nor the collection of personal information. This cookie policy should therefore be read in conjunction with the AEROPRO Privacy Policy.

1. Cookies And Other Automated Passive Data Collection

All automated means of passive data collection will be jointly referred to as ‘cookies’ throughout this policy, except as set forth in this section. This section provides more information about some of those technologies and how they work. Cookies A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Most major websites use cookies. Because the browser provides this cookie information to the website at each visit, cookies serve as a sort of label that allows a website to “recognize” a browser when it returns to the website. Cookies store information about your activities on a website or other platform. For example, cookies can store your session information for easy sign-in to a website or other platform you have previously visited. They enable us to make your use of the AEROPRO websites more enjoyable and to improve functionality. Clear GIFs Clear GIFs, also known as web beacons, are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A clear GIF is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a website. The use of a clear GIF allows the website to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the clear GIF. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website. Clear GIFs, which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Clear GIF, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Clear GIF was viewed.

2. Information We Passively Collect

The information that we may collect with automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, cookie information, a unique device or user ID, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on AEROPRO websites, the frequency and duration of your visits, and the “referring URL” from which you navigated to the AEROPRO website. We may also use cookies on AEROPRO websites to store session validators on your hard drive. If we directly combine any information gathered through passive means with personal Information, we treat the combined information as personal Information under our Privacy Policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in aggregated forms.

3. How We Use Passively Collected Data

On the AEROPRO websites we may use passively-collected data to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit a AEROPRO website; (b) monitor your interaction with various sections of our websites; (c) customize content, such as providing you with recommendations; (d) monitor aggregate website usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) administer, operate, and improve the AEROPRO websites.

4. Cookies We Use And Why

Strictly Necessary Cookies These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as registering on the website, signing in, performing account related functions, customizing products, filling in forms, establishing your privacy preferences, facilitating language translation, and keeping track of shopping cart contents. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site may not work then. Performance Cookies These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are popular, ensure users are finding what they are looking for easily, and otherwise observe how visitors move around the site. With the exception of phone calls made to AEROPRO, all information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site. Targeting Cookies These cookies may be used by our advertising partners to show you relevant ads on other sites based on your interests and previous browsing activity. They work by uniquely identifying your browser and device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will not experience our targeted advertising across different websites. Whether a cookie is considered as a ‘first’ or ‘third party’ cookie refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those cookies set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g. cookies placed by www.aeropro.eco. Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. Session cookies allow website operators to link your actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Persistent cookies on the other hand are cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. We use both session and persistent cookies.

5. How To Disable Or Remove Cookies

You can configure your Internet browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies completely or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the website you visit. Please note that disabling cookies may interfere with the performance and features of AEROPRO websites.

6. Changes To This Cookie Policy

We may occasionally update this cookie policy. If we do, we will update the “effective date” at the top of the Cookie Policy. If we make an update to this Cookie Policy that is materially less restrictive in our use or disclosure of passively collected data prior to the update, we will provide you with prior notice of the pending update and seek your consent by posting notice on the AEROPRO Websites or by contacting you using the email address you provided. We encourage you to periodically review this Cookie Policy to stay informed about our use of passively collected data. Your continued use of the AEROPRO Websites constitutes your agreement to this Cookie Policy and any updates.
