WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES AAB COLLECT?
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
Personal Information You Provide to Us:
We may receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us by email or in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected include your full name, credit card information, email address, address, zip code, interests, gender, IP address, browser information, username, password, historical purchase data and any other information necessary for us to provide our services. The Personal Information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain services, customizing the content you see, and communicating with you about new services.
Personal Information Collected Automatically:
- We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or use our services. AAB automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
- Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Website and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. AAB only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our Website or services. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use the Website or services, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, AAB never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
We often receive a confirmation when you open an email from AAB if your computer supports this type of program. AAB uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. When you receive email from AAB, you can opt out of receiving further emails by following the included instructions to unsubscribe.

Personal Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information only as described below.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We anticipate that we may become affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses may sell items to you through the Website. In other situations, AAB may provide services jointly with affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that affiliated business.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, AAB’s agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if AAB, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that AAB goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of AAB may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of AAB and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of AAB, our employees, our users, or others.
