Privacy Policy

American Data Network respects your personal privacy and is committed to adhering to federal and state privacy laws and industry guidelines in order to protect you and your identity. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on this site (the “ADN Web Site” or the “Web Site”). This Privacy Policy applies only to the American Data Network Web Sites, not to any other sites that may be accessible from here.

By using the Web Site, you accept and agree to our privacy practices.

Information American Data Network Collects From You

Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from users of the ADN Web Site both by asking specific questions through the contact forms, registrations for downloads, user account setup, and other features of the ADN Web Site. Some of the information that you submit during any contact form submission, registration or other online process, may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.).

When you visit the ADN Web Site, we will not collect any personally identifiable or other sensitive information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you choose to register, during the registration process you will be asked for certain information, most of which is required in order to complete the registration. We will inform you which information is optional.

As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most web site operators, we track IP addresses, use cookies, and assign Internet tags. Your internet browser automatically transmits to the ADN Web Site some of this anonymous information, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on this site.

We passively collect information to understand what areas of the ADN Web Site are most utilized, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the ADN Web Site. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you as much as we can, with a safe online environment. We do not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.

How American Data Network Uses Your Information

American Data Network uses your personal information to enhance the operation of the ADN Web Site and allow you to use all of its features.

Your contact information and product information will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us (e.g., registering to download a whitepaper or to use one of our products), to send you related notices or materials, and to respond to your comments or requests for information. If you direct comments to us or request information from us, we may ask you questions in an effort to tailor our response to your situation.

We will not sell or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any outside organization. We may disclose your personal information to our vendors that assist us in processing information or delivering materials or services. These vendors are not allowed to use the information for any other purpose.

We will not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. However, American Data Network will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

We may provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, online traffic patterns, and related information to our contractors, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. We may use services hosted by third parties such as Google Analytics to assist in providing our services and to help us understand how use our websites are used. These services may collect information sent by a browser as part of a web page request, including IP addresses or cookies. If these third party services collect information, they do so anonymously and in the aggregate to provide information helpful to us, such as website trends, without identifying individual visitors.

American Data Network will disclose any information that it is required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority.
