We may use this information to measure site activity, to develop ideas for improving our website or for any other purpose, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

At this present time, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about users to our publicly available areas of our website. In the absence of a definitive agreement executed by ACP and you, there shall be no legal obligation of any kind or nature on behalf of ACP to maintain the confidentiality of any information that you voluntarily provide us by mail, email address or other communication.

We may combine this information with personally identifiable information. We may share this information with others for informational or promotional purposes to the extent permitted by law. ACP, however, reserves the right to use this information in any manner permitted by law.

We will not disclose any personal information that you have provided us with to anyone, except as permitted or required by law, or as necessary to provide services to you. We may disclose personal information to protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of property that belongs to you, or protect the safety and security of our websites, databases or third parties, including the safety and security of tangible or intangible property that belongs to us or to third parties. Also, in the event that ACP or its assets are acquired, user information may be one of the transferred assets.
