ACE Privacy Policy

SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you become an ACE member, or purchase something from our website, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. This information is kept in a confidential file that can only be accessed by our Communications Co-ordinator.  To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

With your permission, we may send you emails about our association, new products and other updates.

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

How do you get my permission?

When you provide us with personal information to purchase a membership in ACE it is implied that you consent to our collecting and using it for that specific reason AND that you consent to being contacted by ACE via email for the purpose of conducting the business of the association which may include notifying members about such things as educational opportunities, discounts on services,  meetings and the like.

If we ask for your personal information for a different reason, for example the sale of a necklace or other product, it is implied that you consent to our collecting and using it only for that specific purpose, and nothing else.

How do I withdraw my consent?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at info@equestrianace.com.

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so.

SECTION 4 - WIX

Our website is hosted by WIX . They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows you to join ACE by purchasing a membership.

Your data is stored through the WIX data storage, databases and the general WIX application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Additionally, when you browse our website we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address. ACE does not access or use your IP address in any way and will not do so unless we are required to do so by law. For more information on how WIX might use such information please read the sections in the WIX Privacy Policy which apply to “Users-of-Users”.

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Once you leave our  website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy.

Payment:

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then PayPal stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
