Our Use of Personal Information

In this section, we set out the purposes for which we process personal information and identify the legal grounds on which we rely to process the information.

In some cases, Ambridge has a legitimate interest to process the personal information that we collect, such as to develop, administer and support our products and services to operate, evaluate and improve our business, to support our recruitment activities, or to facilitate a sale of assets or merger or acquisition.

In other cases, Ambridge processes personal information to fulfill our contracts with our business partners.

It may be also necessary for Ambridge to process personal information to comply with our legal obligations, to protect against, identify, investigate, and respond to fraud, illegal activity, and claims and other liabilities, including by enforcing the terms and conditions that govern the services we provide.

If Ambridge relies on consent for the processing of your personal information, we will seek such consent at the time we collect your personal information.  For more information on consent, please see the “Privacy Preferences, Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Notice.

We may use personal information to:

  • Communicate about the products and services we offer, and respond to requests, inquiries, comments, and suggestions
  • Analyze and enhance our communications and strategies (including by identifying when emails sent to you have been received and read)
  • Operate, evaluate and improve our business, our websites, and other products and services we offer (including to research and develop new products and services)

  • Comply with regulatory reporting obligations

  • Process employment applications

We may also aggregate and/or de-identify any information that we collect, such that the information no longer identifies any specific individual. We may use, disclose and otherwise process such information for our own legitimate business purposes – including historical and statistical analysis and business planning – without restriction.

Information We Share

Ambridge may share personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice or a specific “in-time” privacy notice we may provide at the time we collect the information.

We may share personal information with:

  • Ambridge affiliates and subsidiaries
  • Service providers that perform services on our behalf, such as customer service and support providers and technology providers (including technology support, email and web hosting providers, email and text communications providers)
  • Governmental and industry regulators

Unless prohibited by applicable law, we reserve the right to transfer the information we maintain in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. If we engage in such a sale or transfer, we will – where required by applicable law – make reasonable efforts to direct the recipient to use your personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice. After such a sale or transfer, you may contact the recipient with any inquiries concerning the processing of your personal information.

In addition, we may share your information to comply with legal and regulatory requirements, and protect against and prevent fraud, illegal activity (such as identifying and responding to incidents of hacking or misuse of our websites), and claims and other liabilities.

Cookies and Other Information Collected by Automated Means

We, our service providers, and our business partners, may also collect certain information about the use of our websites by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor‘s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. Please see our Cookies Policy for more information on cookies. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We and our service providers and business partners may collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites when you use our websites.

The information that may be collected by automated means includes:

  • Details about the devices that are used to access our websites (such as the IP address, and type of operating system and web browser)
  • Dates and times of visits to, and use of, our websites
  • Information about how our websites are used (such as the content that is viewed on our websites and how users navigate between our webpages)
  • Details about how individuals interact with our emails (such as whether the email is opened and which links are clicked in the email)
  • URLs that refer visitors to our websites
  • Search terms used to reach our websites

Web browsers may offer users of our websites the ability to disable receiving certain types of cookies; however, if cookies are disabled, some features or functionality of our websites may not function correctly.

Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based do-not-track (“DNT”) mechanisms, we do not respond to web browser-based DNT signals at this time. Please see the “Privacy Preferences, Rights and Choices” section below for information about how you may opt out of, or limit the use of, your browsing behavior for online behavioral advertising purposes.

Data Retention

We will retain your information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, depending on the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, the nature of the information, any contractual relationship that may govern the retention of the data, and our legal or regulatory obligations. We will then destroy your information or anonymize the information, in accordance with applicable law.

Careers

If you submit your information in connection with job opportunities at Ambridge, we will use and disclose the information to process your application (including to contact you and/or your references and former employers if appropriate), to monitor recruitment statistics, and to comply with government reporting requirements. We also retain statistical information about applicants to help inform our recruitment activities. We will process this information based on our legitimate interest of evaluating job candidates or, when you provide us with sensitive information, based on your consent.

Minors

Our websites are not intended for individuals under 18 years of age, and individuals must be at least 18 years of age to register with our websites. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13 through our websites. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 through our websites, we will delete that information.

Privacy Preferences, Rights and Choices

Individuals have certain rights and choices regarding Ambridge’s processing of their personal information.

Please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information, we may be precluded from providing our products or services to individuals who exercise these rights, or from otherwise engaging with such individuals going forward.

We reserve the right to verify the identity of the individual in connection with any requests regarding personal information to help ensure that we provide the information to individuals to whom the information pertains, and allow only those individuals or their authorized representatives to exercise rights with respect to that information.

For information about the rights and choices users have with respect to cookies and online tracking, please see the “Cookies and Other Information Collected by Automated Means” section of this Privacy Notice.

General Objections to the Processing of Personal Information

To the extent provided by applicable law, you may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us, or object at any time on legitimate grounds, to the processing of your personal information. We will apply your preferences going forward. In some circumstances, withdrawing your consent to Ambridge’s use or disclosure of your personal information will mean that Ambridge will not be able to provide products or services to you or to otherwise engage with you.

Access to Personal Information

You may request access to the personal information that we maintain about you. If we grant your request, we will provide you with a copy of the personal information we maintain about you in the ordinary course of business, in a commonly used format.

However, even if you opt out of receiving such communications, we retain the right to send you non-marketing communications (such as information about changes in our website terms).

Online Behavioral Advertising

Some of the business partners that may collect information about users’ activities on our websites may be members of organizations or programs that provide choices to individuals regarding the use of their browsing behavior for purposes of targeted advertising. For example, users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the Network Advertising Initiative by clicking here or the Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here. European users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here, selecting the user’s country, and then clicking “Choices” (or similarly-titled link). Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms that we linked above.

International Data Transfers

We may transfer your personal information to countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. For example, if you are located outside of the United States, we typically transfer your personal information to the United States, where Ambridge is headquartered. The countries to which we transfer personal information may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer personal information across borders, we consider a variety of requirements that may apply to such transfers.

Specifically, we may transfer personal information from the European Economic Area (EEA) to:

  • Countries that the European Commissions has deemed to adequately safeguard personal information,
  • Pursuant to the recipient’s compliance with standard contractual clauses, EU-US Privacy Shield, or Binding Corporate Rules,
  • Pursuant to the consent of the individual to whom the personal information pertains, or
  • As otherwise permitted by applicable EEA requirements.

How We Protect Information

Ambridge maintains reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we maintain against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. However, we cannot guarantee that the measures we maintain will ensure the security of the personal information.

Links to Websites and Third-Party Content

For your convenience and information, we may provide links to websites and other third-party content that is not owned or operated by Ambridge. The websites and third-party content to which we link may have separate privacy notices or policies. Ambridge is not responsible for the privacy practices of any entity that it does not own or control.

When we update this Privacy Notice, we will notify you of changes that are deemed material under applicable legal requirements by updating the date of this Privacy Notice and providing other notification as required by applicable law.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit the Website, your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.

Session cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser and persistent cookies remain on your device after the browser is closed (for example to remember your user preferences when you return to the site).

What types of cookies does Ambridge use?

We describe the categories of cookies Ambridge and its contractors use below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Website and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for (such as navigating between pages) cannot be provided.

Performance Cookies

We make use of analytics cookies to analyze how our visitors use our Website and to monitor Website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website. The information collected by these cookies is not associated with your personal information by us or by our contractors.

Website Functionality Cookies

We make use of cookies to provide you with certain functionality. For example, to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in), or to recognize the platform from which you access the site, and to provide enhanced and more personal features. These cookies are not used to track your browsing on other sites.

Local Shared Objects (“flash cookies”)

In addition to the above cookies, we may use Local Shared Objects, also referred to as “flash cookies,” on our Website. These are used to enhance your user experience, for example, by storing your user preferences and settings. Local Shared Objects are similar to browser cookies, but can store data more complex than simple text. By themselves, they cannot do anything to or with the data on your computer. Like other cookies, they can only access personally identifiable information that you have provided on this Website, and cannot be accessed by other websites.  To find out more about flash cookies or how to disable them, please visit http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html.
