Use of your Personal Information

ALCO also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from ALCO and its affiliates. ALCO may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

ALCO does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. ALCO may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ALCO, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

ALCO keeps track of the web sites and pages our customers visit within ALCO, in order to determine what ALCO services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ALCO to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

ALCO web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ALCO or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ALCO; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ALCO, or the public or their personal property.

Use of Cookies

The ALCO web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ALCO pages, or register with ALCO site or services, a cookie helps ALCO to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ALCO web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ALCO features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ALCO services or web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

ALCO secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. ALCO secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

ALCO will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. ALCO encourages you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how ALCO is protecting your information.
