ASSOCIATED BUSINESS SERVICES LLC
and for all sites owned and managed by
Associated Business Services LLC
IS THE OPERATIONAL PLATFORM
AS REGARDS SITE CONSTRUCTION
Associated Business Services LLC and its related sites are developed by the use of WordPress.org as regards operational and content platform, the choice of plugins, and any other technical item specifically used by this platform. As such, personally identifiable information data is not revealed and saved just by interaction with these sites. WordPress does not collect PII about the visitors to the sites. However, it is possible that this type of data can be generated from technical items such as cookies, analytics, contact forms, comments, and third-party embeds.
INFORMATION COLLECTED BY
ASSOCIATED BUSINESS SERVICES LLC
Personal data such as name, email and snail mail addresses, phone and fax numbers, financial profiles, social security numbers, credit card information, personal preferences and transactional data is not collected by Associated Business Services LLC and its related sites. The only personally identifiable information collected is that provided by the user when accessing the contact form or the newsletter. As such, consent measures are requested when using these forms of communication. In a direct manner, Associated Business Services LLC collects only information related to user input into the Contact form and the newsletter both of which require an additional measure of consent from the user. Furthermore, this information is limited to name and email address.
Associated Business Services LLC and its related sites are not membership sites, nor do they require any form of user login. There is no comment section either so there is no reason to collect the name, email or website information of any commentator. Any information collected would be related to IP addresses, ISPs, and browser types, to analyze trends, administer the site, track a user’s movement and use, and gather broad demographic information. This type of information is not PPI and most often can be controlled and removed by the user of the site.
Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.
Indirect Collection of PII
Indirectly, some personal information might be collected from any cookies, analytics, and third-party embeds. However, all such items are now bound to compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation.
It is beyond the capacity of Associated Business Services LLC to regulate the products necessitated for the safe and intelligent use of the main site and the other sites owned and managed by the parent company.
Furthermore, the new GDPR regulation applies to nearly all aspects of obtaining data. Most reputable companies create products that comply with these measures regarding the protection of personally identifiable information, otherwise, they incur a penalty.
Embedded Content from Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
USE AND PROTECTION
OF YOUR INFORMATION
Associated Business Services LLC does not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. Associated Business Services LLC does not always use an SSL certificate. Associated Business Services LLC primarily provides articles and information, and never asks for personal or private information unless it becomes necessary during any type of contact or informational process.
Your information is not stored on site, IP server, or browser unless you enact that procedure. Browser cookies can be deleted by the user. Associated Business Services LLC and related sites perform the necessary actions required to not store information and as such does not require the typical “Delete Me” measures but will delete any item the user of the site believes is their own PII stored herein. This belief must be substantiated. Visitors may opt out of receiving unsolicited information or being contacted by us and/or our affiliated agencies by responding to emails as instructed, or by contacting us.
Third Party Disclosure
Associated Business Services LLC may transfer your non-identifiable information to third parties. Associated Business Services LLC may also transfer your identifiable information, but only to trusted third parties, and only in context to an action you took while on this site. Third party disclosure is primarily for anonymous tracking of actions such as website analytics. The identifiable information would only be relayed to third parties when signing up for a newsletter that sends more information or, in some cases, when purchasing an affiliate marketing product. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
Third Party Links
Cookies are used to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. Sites managed by Associated Business Services LLC may also use trusted third party services, such as Google Analytics, that track this information on behalf of the management of this site. It won’t affect the users’ experience. It does not amount to the inappropriate retention and use of Personally Identifiable Information.
Does Associated Business Services LLC Permit Third Party Behavioral Tracking?
Associated Business Services LLC attempts to permit that which is used in a conscientious manner relevant to why the visitor is on managed sites. However, Associated Business Services LLC finds that many advertising methods find their way onto site pages without consent and which do not relate to site content. The reader of the site must learn to control such a disturbing experience by learning where in their “remove programs” section on their own computer, and where in their browser settings, to delete certain programs. Control of cookies is best managed by the person using the computer. The use of AdBlockers will also prevent undesired advertisements.
Do Not Track Signals
Associated Business Services LLC honors Do Not Track signals and does not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place. DNT mechanisms are not purposefully over-ridden by Associated Business Services LLC.
Presently, Associated Business Services LLC has not enabled Google AdSense on any managed sites but might do so on the future. If such action occurs, it will be implemented in accordance with current data protection procedures.
