Information We Collect and How We Use It
If you request to receive company, product information or purchase products, you will be asked to provide for your name, title, e-mail address, company name, and phone number. The personally identifiable information you submit to us will be used to identify you as a customer and to facilitate your order. We may also use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, providing you promotional information about our products and services or those of our other affiliated companies (“affiliated companies”), or to communicate with you about the services we have provided. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. However, aside from our reply to such an email, it is not our standard practice to send you email unless you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves email communications, it relates to purchases you have made with us (e.g., product updates, customer support, etc.), we are sending you information about our other services, or you consented to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. In certain instances, we may provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications from us; that is, agree to some communications but not others.
AQE may also automatically collect and analyze information about your general usage of the Site and store it in log files. AQE may track your usage patterns to see what features of the Site you commonly use, Site traffic volume, frequency of visits, type and time of transactions, type of browser, browser language, IP address and operating system, and statistical information about types of products searched and purchased. AQE will collect, track and analyze such information in an aggregate manner that does not personally identify you. This aggregate data may be used by AQE and third-party vendors to assist AQE in operating the Site and the products purchased, and be provided to other third parties to enable them to better understand the operation of AQE’ business, but such information will be in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable data. AQE may also gather information about you (that you voluntarily submit to AQE) when you purchase products, provide feedback to AQE and/or send or receive communications regarding our products.
AQE may use your personally identifiable information to provide you with information and products; verify your authority to purchase products; notify you of updates; improve the content and general administration of the Site; provide you with notices regarding products you have purchased or may wish to purchase in the future; and to send you targeted advertising. AQE does not provide e-mail addresses or any of your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes.
AQE recognizes the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. This Site is not intended for children under the age of 13 and we endeavor not to collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. AQE targets its products and this Site to adults and not to children under 13. If we have found that we have collected personally identifiable information from a child under 13, we will delete this information immediately.

In addition, we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which AQE participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of AQE assets to which this Site relates. In this case, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personally identifiable information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personally identifiable information.
We may also disclose your personally identifiable information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as shipping your product or offering customer service.

Accountability for Onward Transfer
Before AQE will transfer personal information to a third party acting as a controller, AQE agrees to comply with the Notice and Choice Principles. Any such data may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual. To transfer personal data to a third party acting as an agent, AQE agrees to: (i) transfer such data only for limited and specified purposes; (ii) ascertain that the agent is obligated to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by AQE; (iii) take steps to ensure that the agent effectively processes the personal information transferred in a manner consistent with AQE’s obligations; (iv) require the agent to notify AQE if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by AQE; (v) upon notice, including under (iv), take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing; and (vi) provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its contract with that agent to applicable agencies or departments upon request.
AQE retains personally identifiable information and the personal data we process on behalf of our customers for the life of the product you purchase from AQE. AQE retains personally identifiable information on prospective customers for up to seven (7) years. We will retain and use this personally identifiable information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements with customers.
