Privacy Statement

Acero Health Technologies respects your privacy. This Statement informs you of our privacy policy and practices.

Sites covered by this Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement applies to all Acero Health Technologies owned websites.

Links to non-Acero Health Technologies websites

The Acero Health Technologies  website may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the Acero Health Technologies website. Acero Health Technologies does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from Acero Health Technologies practices. We do not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to provide to or that is collected by these third parties is not covered by the Acero Health Technologies Privacy Statement.

We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company before submitting your personal information.

We may also provide social media features on our website that enable you to share Acero Health Technologies information with your social networks and to interact with Acero Health Technologies on various social media sites. Your use of these features may result in the collection or sharing of information about you, depending on the feature. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and settings on the social media sites with which you interact to make sure you understand the information that could be shared by those sites.

Collection of personal information

To serve you better and understand your needs and interests, Acero Health Technologies  collects, exports, and uses personal information with adequate notice and consent, along with required filings with data protection authorities, when applicable. For example, when you request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials, enter contests or participate in surveys, or apply for a job at Acero Health Technologies, we may ask you to provide personal information to completethese transactions. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include contact information such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address and other unique information such as user IDs and passwords, product and service preferences, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data.

If you post, comment or share personal information, including photographs, to any public forum on an Acero Health Technologies site, social network, blog, or other such forum, please be aware that any personal information you submit can be read, viewed, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to contact you, send you unsolicited messages, or for purposes that neither you nor Acero Health Technologies have control over. Acero Health Technologies is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.

In addition to the information you provide, Acero Health Technologies may also collect information during your visit to an Acero Health Technologies website, or a website “powered by” another company on behalf of Acero Health Technologies, through tools, which may include Web beacons, cookies, embedded Web links, and other information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain traffic information that your browser sends to a website, such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived . They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, click stream behavior (i.e. the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with Acero Health Technologies websites or “powered by” websites) and product information. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers use IP addresses to communicate on the Internet, allowing users to browse and shop. Acero Health Technologies may also use some of these tools in connection with certain emails sent from Acero Health Technologies and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.

Acero Health Technologies also collects information from commercially available sources that it deems credible. Such information may include your name, address, email address and demographic data. The information Acero Health Technologies collects from its commercial sources may be used along with the information Acero Health Technologies collects when you visit Acero Health Technologies’ websites. For example, Acero Health Technologies may compare the geographic information acquired from commercial sources with the IP address collected by our website to derive your general geographic area.

How we use your information

The information Acero Health Technologies collects to understand your needs and interests helps Acero Health Technologies deliver a consistent and personalized experience. For example, Acero Health Technologies may use your information to:

  • prevent and detect security threats, fraud or other malicious activity;
  • communicate with you about products and services;
  • provide service and support;
  • update you on new services and benefits;
  • provide personalized promotional offers;
  • select content to be communicated to you;
  • measure performance of marketing initiatives, ads, and websites “powered by” another company on Acero Health Technologies’ behalf
  • allow you to participate in contests and surveys; and
  • contact you regarding Acero Health Technologies products or services.

We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding the communications we send.

The testimonials posted on our Web site are only posted with the expressed permission of the individual or company who provided that testimonial.

How we share your information

Acero Health Technologies will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others except as described in this Statement. Acero Health Technologies shares personal information in the following ways:

Acero Health Technologies retains service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions and to assist Acero Health Technologies with marketing and communication initiatives. These providers and suppliers include, for example, providers of customer support and live-help, marketing, email service providers, automated data processors, and shipping agents.

From time to time, Acero Health Technologies participates in marketing initiatives with other companies, including websites “powered by” another company on behalf of Acero Health Technologies. As part of these initiatives, certain Acero Health Technologies services and marketing communications may be delivered at the sametime as those from other companies. Some of these services and communications offer you the option to share personal information with both Acero Health Technologies and the other companies participating in these initiatives. For example, you may receive marketing communications from Acero Health Technologies and other companies or have the opportunity to register online for software products from multiple companies. If you choose to provide personal information only to Acero Health Technologies, Acero Health Technologies will not share this information with the other companies participating in that marketing initiative. If you choose to provide personal information to the other companies, that personal information will be handled according to the privacy policy of those companies which may differ from Acero Health Technologies’ policies and practices.

Except as described in this Statement, Acero Health Technologies will not share the personal information you provide to Acero Health Technologies with non-Acero Health Technologies third parties without your permission, unless to: (i) respond to duly authorized information requests of police and governmental authorities; (ii) comply with any law, regulation, subpoena, or court order; (iii) investigate and help prevent security threats, fraud or other malicious activity; (iv) enforce/protect the rights and properties of Acero Health Technologies; or (v) protect the rights or personal safety of Acero Health Technologies employees and third parties on or using Acero Health Technologies property.

Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, Acero Health Technologies decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is Acero Health Technologies intent to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

How Acero Health Technologies uses online data collection tools

The following sections provide additional information about commonly-used web technology tools.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small data file transferred by a website to your computer’s hard drive. Acero Health Technologies or its service providers send cookies when you use our site or sites where our ads appear, request or personalize information, or register yourself for certain services. Accepting the cookies used on our site, sites that are “powered by” another company on Acero Health Technologies’ behalf, or sites where our ads appear may give us access to information about your browsing behavior, which we may use to personalize your experience. Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.

  • Session cookies do not stay on your computer after you close your browser. 
  • Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire. Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn off cookies, there may be some features of our site that will not be available to you and some Web pages may not display properly.

Web beacons

Some AceroHealth.com and third-party Web pages and HTML-formatted email use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your website usage and your interaction with email, as well as to measure performance on Acerohealth.com and websites “powered by” another company on Acero Health Technologies’s behalf. A Web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1x1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date of a page viewed, and a description of the page where the Web beacon is placed. Depending on the context, web beacons may also refer to content on a third-party server, and may be used by service providers to deliver relevant advertising to you.

You may be able to disable Web beacons in email messages by not downloading images contained in the message you receive (this feature varies depending on the email software used on your personal computer). However, doing this may not always disable a Web beacon or other automatic data collection tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities. For more information about this, please refer to the information provided by your email software or service provider.

If you choose to receive marketing emails or newsletters from Acero Health Technologies may automatically collect personal information about you. For example, through Web beacons and personalized URLs embedded in these emails or newsletters, Acero Health Technologies can track whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages. For more information on embedded Web links, see below.

Embedded Web links

Emails from Acero Health Technologies may use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the Web, sometimes after redirection through Acero Health Technologies servers. The redirection system allows Acero Health Technologies to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.

In emails, such web links may also allow Acero Health Technologies to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email, and this information about the interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want Acero Health Technologies to collect information about the links that you click, you can choose not to click links in an email that Acero Health Technologies sends or unsubscribe from receiving promotional e-mails.

Ads and offerings on third-party websites

Acero Health Technologies contracts with service providers to place ads on websites owned by third parties. In addition, some websites may be “powered by” a service provider to provide Acero Health Technologies offers on Acero Health Technologies’ behalf. These service providers may send cookies from and use Web beacons on these third-party websites and on AceroHealth.com. The cookies and Web beacons may enable Acero Health Technologies to collect information about the pages you viewed and the links you clicked.
