2.0 USE OF INFORMATION

5.0 SAFEGUARDS

We may use information you have provided to us, for example, to provide a service, ensure proper shipments, billings, measure market interest and inform you of our products and services. If you provide your email address, or have done so in the past, or if we obtain your email address from a third-party, we may send you email offers. These email offers may come directly from ASL or from a third-party. When we send emails to you, we may be able to identify information about your email address, such as whether you can read certain kinds of emails. If your email address is HTML-enabled, we may choose to send you graphics-based emails.
We will not provide your email address to our business partners. However, we may send you promotional offers on behalf of our business partners. Note that if you respond to an offer from an ASL business partner and become their client, they may want to send independent promotional offers to you. In this case, you will need to inform them separately if you wish to decline receiving future offers from them.

All correspondence is designed so as to safeguard the security and privacy of all client personal information and protect against loss or theft. When you send confidential personal information to us from the ASL Website, we require that a secured session be established using Secure HTTP (https) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted with a 128-bit key.
