3. COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

To help improve your user experience and the performance of the Website, Avaus stores cookies on your computer or portable device, and Avaus may use Web beacons or pixel tags.

Pixel tags and web beacons are graphic images, such as a GIF or PNG, placed on certain pages on the Website or in our emails to you that allow Avaus to determine whether you have performed a specific action.  Cookies are small text files that a website places on your browser. Cookies, web beacons and tracking technologies are widely used for security, to learn about and improve upon how users navigate a website, or to enable certain features. Cookies also allow Avaus to collect non-Personal Information from you, like which pages you visited and what links you clicked on. Cookies, pixel tags and web beacons, by themselves, do not tell Avaus your e-mail address or other Personal Information unless you choose to provide this information to Avaus by, for example, registering for the Service on the Website. However, once you choose to furnish the Website with Personal Information, this Personal Information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Avaus uses cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on the Website. For example, Avaus may use cookies to personalise your experience at the Website (e.g., to recognise you by name when you return to the Website), and to save your password in password-protected areas. Avaus may also use cookies to offer you products, programs, or services. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by the Website only and does not cover the use of cookies by any third party. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Website may not work properly or at all.

Also, authorised third party service providers may collect non-contact information about your visits to our Services with cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies that may be used to deliver advertisements or marketing tailored to your interests. These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time.

More information about cookies, including how to block them or delete them, can be found at AboutCookies.org.

 

4. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

The information you provide to us will be held in a secure cloud managed by Avaus and may be accessed by or given to our staff and service providers who act for Avaus for the purposes set out in this policy or for other purposes approved by you. Those parties process information, fulfill and deliver orders and provide support services on our behalf. Avaus may also pass aggregate information on the usage of our site to third parties, but this will not include information that can be used to identify you.

If our business enters into a joint venture with or is sold to or merged with another business entity, your information may be disclosed to our new business partners or owners.

Unless required to do so by law, Avaus will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to Avaus without your consent.
