DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA

A-LIGN uses all information collected from a user for internal purposes only.  A-LIGN does not and will not sell or rent your personal information to anyone.  A-LIGN may, from time to time, send personal information about a user to other persons or entities that perform services on behalf of A-LIGN (“Service Providers”), but only when:

  • The Service Provider has agreed to use such information solely for the purposes of providing services to A-LIGN;

  • A-LIGN needs to share the user’s information to provide the service the user has requested;

Unless A-LIGN informs a user otherwise, a service provider does not have any right to use the personal information A-LIGN provides to them beyond what is necessary to assist A-LIGN, or in response to a legal obligation including without limitation a subpoena, court order or A-LIGN believes that the law requires disclosure, or where the information is currently in the public domain.

SAFEGUARDS

A-LIGN holds all of the personal information in the United States at this time.  A-LIGN keeps a user’s personal information for as long as A-LIGN determines necessary to fulfill the objective for which it was collected. Personal information is maintained on A-LIGN systems that are protected using industry standard security measures to ensure the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of the personal information. Unfortunately, however, A-LIGN cannot and does not guaranty that the information submitted to, maintained by, or transmitted from A-LIGN is or will always be completely secure, as transmission of information over the internet is oftentimes susceptible to potential interception, misuse, willful and/or negligent acts or omissions, misrouting, or possible loss.
