What personal information we collect and how we use it
When you purchase a product we may collect your shipping and billing address, payment information, phone number and email address. If you leave items in your shopping cart prior to completing a purchase on our Site, we may email you reminders about those items left in your shopping cart. If you choose to create an account on our Site, we will also collect a user name and password. We use this information to administer your account and process your order and any returns.
From time to time we may obtain your consent to send you our promotional emails containing information about ACUnitParts.com products and services. You can unsubscribe from our email list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in any of our email messages or by contacting us as set out below.
When you enter a contest, sweepstakes or participate in a promotion, we may collect your name, address, phone number, email address, and other information you provide. We use this information to administer your participation in the contest, sweepstakes or promotion.
From time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in one of our surveys or other customer research. The information obtained through our surveys and customer research is used in an aggregated, non-personally identifiable form. We use this information to help us understand our customers, and to enhance our product and service offerings, promotions and events.
We also collect information when you contact us with a question, comment or complaint, including when you use our Live Chat program. For example, we may collect your name, email address and any additional information we need to help us respond to your question or comment (such as your order number or any product information). We may retain this information to assist you in the future and to improve our customer service, product and service offerings.
How we protect your personal information
We have implemented technical, physical and administrative safeguards designed to protect personal information against loss, theft or unauthorized or unlawful access, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
All passwords are stored on our server in encrypted form. If you lose your password, we will generate a new one and send it to you.
We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated above or to otherwise meet legal requirements.
Other data we collect that is not personally identifiable
We may also use third parties to serve our advertisements on other websites. These companies may use tracer tags or web beacons to report certain information (but not your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to our Site and the websites which advertise and feature links to our Site, in order to measure the effectiveness of our advertisements.
We use data in the aggregate for our business purposes, but we do not use it in a manner that allows identification of an individual user.

All information provided to ACUnitParts.com operations is transmitted using SSL encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect your information by placing it on a secure portion of our website that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of ACUnitParts.com. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
