Ace Computer World Data/Privacy Policy

Ace Computer World recognizes that privacy is an important issue, so we design and operate our services with the protection of your privacy in mind. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information we gather when you use the Ace Computer World website. Ace Computer World will, at all times, take reasonable steps to ensure all collected information is safe and secure.

The following principles apply to the personal information we ask for and that you provide. Personal Information is defined under this policy as any information about any person whose identity is apparent, or whose identity can be reasonably ascertained from that information.

Data collection

You will not have any personal information collected about you from just browsing our website.

  • Ace Computer World collects limited, non-personally identifying information from your browser which your browser makes available whenever you visit a website. This information may include your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your query and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We use this information as feedback to help improve and develop our internet services.
  • When Signing up for membership at Ace Computer World we will ask you for some personal information in order to create an account (typically your name, email address and a password for your account) and we will use that information to identify you when logging in, to send you special deals and information, and to allow you access to online shopping.
  • Online shopping also requires you to provide us with your mailing address, contact information and payment details to complete your purchase.
  • If you submit information to us using an electronic form or send us an e-mail, we collect that information and use it for the purposes for which you have provided it. We may also use it to keep you informed and up to date with reports, newsletters and details of product changes. In addition, we may use your information to provide you with special offers, information about new products and special promotions which we think may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive this information, you can let us know by sending us an email and you will be immediately removed from receiving any further information. Members can change their contact preferences in ‘Your Membership Details’, in the Members section of the web site.

Information security

Ace Computer World takes reasonable security precautions to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or removal of data. We restrict access to your personal identifying information to employees who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services.

Secure Communications
Our Web Site uses SSL 128 bit encryption for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, registered information, name, address and other personal details, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. We do not send credit card information or user credentials via email.

How to ensure SSL encryption security is in place.
If you use Internet Explorer as your Web browser (and are not using a relay or proxy), all Card transactions are fully encrypted and secure. If you use a relay or proxy, check your browser’s lock indicator (usually a picture of a lock or a key) to see if it is secure (Lock is closed.). Credit card information transmitted online is encrypted while in transit, so that even if the information is intercepted it is useless to a would-be thief.

Disclosure of member’s information or our use of your information
We will not disclose any information to third parties without your permission other than for the purposes of supplying our services as outlined on this web site.

Accessing your personal information
If you have chosen to sign up for Membership for access to the benefits that members enjoy at Ace Computer World, then you have full access to your Membership information online. If you no longer wish to be a Member, please contact us and we will remove and completely destroy any Members information that we have collected from you and disable your Members web access.
