Whenever we collect Personal Data from you, we may do so on the following legal bases:

  1. Your consent to such collection and use;
  2. Out of necessity for the performance of an agreement between us and you, such as your agreement to use our Services or your request for Products;

    • Communications and marketing, including processing data for direct marketing purposes, and subject to your opt-in for these purposes, and to determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns and advertising;

    • Enhancement of our cybersecurity, including improving the security of our network and information systems; and
    • General business operations and diligence;

Provided that, in each circumstance, we will weigh the necessity of our processing for the purpose against your privacy and confidentiality interests, including taking into account your reasonable expectations, the impact of processing, and any safeguards which are or could be put in place. In all circumstances, we will limit such processing for our legitimate business interest to what is necessary for its purposes.

INFORMATION WE SHARE

We do not share personal data with companies, organizations and individuals outside of the Organization unless one of the following circumstances applies:

  • With your consent. We will share personal data with companies, organizations or individuals outside of The Ace Class when we have your consent to do so.
  • Owners and Franchisees. We disclose Personal Data and Other Data to Owners and Franchisees of The Ace Class branded properties for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice, such as providing and personalizing the Services and facilitating the loyalty programs.

  • For external processing. We provide personal data to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or partners to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. These third parties include payment processors, such as financial institutions and their vendors and contractors that process transactions, order fulfillment, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, email delivery, marketing, auditing and other services. It is our policy to only share Personal Data with contractors, service providers and other third parties who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Data confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. Under certain circumstances, you may avoid having us share your information with our business partners and vendors by not granting us permission to share your information. Not granting us permission to share your information with our business partners or vendors may limit your access to their services through the Sites. We do not share personal data with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

    • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
    • Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of The Ace Class, our Users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We attempt to notify Users about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overboard, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.

  • Business Transfers. If we establish a new related entity, are acquired by or merged with another organization, or if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another organization, Personal Data about our users is often a transferred business asset. In the event that The Ace Class itself or substantially all of our assets are acquired, Personal Data about our users may be one of the transferred assets.
  • Aggregate Site Use Information. We may share aggregate and anonymized/pseudonymized Personal Data to third parties in order to promote or describe use of the website, for research, marketing, advertising, or similar purposes.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS AND WEBSITES

Any information, communications or material of any type or nature that you submit to our website (including, but not limited to any The Ace Class website contained on a social media platform or website such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter) by email, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise (collectively, a “Submission”), is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy.

The Ace Class is not responsible for any content or Submissions contained on such sites and platforms. By visiting any The Ace Class website that is contained on a social media platform or website, you are representing and warranting to The Ace Class that you have reviewed the applicable privacy policy and terms of use of that platform or website and that you will abide by all such provisions contained therein.

Additionally, in the event that The Ace Class offers a message board or any other interactive or social-type feature on a website administered directly by The Ace Class, please be aware that these platforms may allow you to publicly post and share information with other users. Although The Ace Class may take certain precautions to protect those who use these areas of The Ace Class website, we warn you that you should not give out any personal data in such public forums as we cannot guarantee the privacy that information will not be private and safety of these areas and may not be monitored and is not guaranteed, and we therefore cannot be responsible for any misused information you choose to post. Your use of these features is fully at your own risk.

THIRD PARTY LINKS

The website may contain links to webpages operated by parties other than The Ace Class. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites. Our inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators.

Further, it is up to the User to take precautions to ensure that whatever links the User selects or software the User downloads (whether from this website or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which the User will be subject to upon linking to the third party's website. The Ace Class strongly recommends that each User review the third party's terms and policies.

CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY

  • While no website can guarantee security, we maintain reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards intended to protect your personal data collected via the website.
  • We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the User's Personal Data and information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, taking into account technological reality, cost, the scope, context and purposes of processing weighted against the severity and likelihood that the processing could threaten individual rights and freedoms. For example, we use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and Secure Socket Layer software (SSL) or hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) to protect Personal Data.
  • We advise all The Ace Class employees about their responsibility to protect customer data and we provide them with appropriate guidelines for adhering to our company's business ethics standards and confidentiality policies.
