What personal information do we collect on this site, and how do we collect it?
When you register on the Site, we will ask you for your name, title, company name, e-mail address and phone number. The user’s contact information is used to contact the user when necessary. Personally identifiable information will not be disclosed.
In addition, note that ACS provides its clients with services that involve it processing personal data on its client’s behalf, such as where it provides remote hosting, system monitoring, system trouble-shooting, data warehousing and application management services. In this capacity, ACS does not own or control the personal data it processes, but rather its client does. In this capacity, ACS receives and processes personal data merely as a “data processor” on behalf of its client. In such situations, ACS often has no contact with the individuals to whom such personal data relates and so is dependent upon its client to comply with applicable Personal Privacy, HIPAA, EU and/or Swiss data protection law at the time that the personal data is originally collected or received by its client.
