Our website, email messages and advertisements may also contain “cookies” and other technologies that allow our system to recognize your browser's access privileges and to personalize your session with us. If you want to disable cookies, you can adjust the settings on your browser accordingly, although doing so will limit the range of features that will be available for your use on our site.

The non-personal information we may collect may be used by us to:

To the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information.

Disclosure to Third Parties

You are the most important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling your information to others. However, ADM21 may make certain personal information available to third parties providing services to ADM21 (such as processing credit card payments, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending regular and electronic mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer service) or to strategic partners of ADM21, for the purposes mentioned above. ADM21's service providers and strategic partners have access only to the personal information necessary for performing their functions, are prohibited from using it for other purposes and are obligated to protect your personal information.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties if:

  • we believe we are required to do so by applicable laws, litigation and/or requests from public and governmental authorities;
  • we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate;
  • we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or visitors to our website or for any other reasonable purpose; or
  • for purposes of fraud protection and/or credit risk reduction.

Protection of Personal Information

We know how important privacy is and take various precautions to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

It is your responsibility, however, to protect against unauthorized access to your computer and any account with ADM21 and login and password relating to our website. You must be sure to sign off of our website when you have completed your visit.

Further, although we believe that our security procedures are appropriate to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that these precautions will protect against, and we expressly disclaim any liability for, its misuse, loss, alteration or use inconsistent with our Privacy Policy.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

We will retain any personal information we collect for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. You may request access to your personal information that we store, so that you can review, correct or delete it, by emailing us. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by applicable law.

Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible. Any parent who may be concerned that a child has accessed our website or given personal information should contact us by email.

Our website may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties. Information collected by third parties is not governed by this Privacy Policy but governed by the privacy practices of each of such third parties. We have no responsibility for and specifically disclaim any liability for the content, the privacy policies and the use of information of third-party websites to which our site may give links. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
