User Consent

A User’s providing of Personal Information to A-LIGN shall be deemed to mean that a User acknowledges this Privacy Policy, and provides express informed consent to A-LIGN’s collection, use, maintenance and disclosure of said User’s Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  If, for some reason, a User does not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, then said User should not, and is requested not to, provide any Personal Information to A-LIGN.  Certain services offered by A-LIGN, however, can only be provided by A-LIGN if a User provides Personal Information to A-LIGN; otherwise, said User may not be able to access A-LIGN’s software.  Thus, if a User chooses not to provide A-LIGN with certain required personal information, the User may not be permitted to obtain certain services or access certain software offered by A-LIGN.

Information Use

A-LIGN may use Personal Information it has collected through its website and software for or in order to, among other things, (a) provide a User with a service or software offered by A-LIGN or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates and business partners, (b) measure a User’s interest in certain services or software or to inform a User about a service or software offered by A-LIGN or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates and business partners, (c) understand a User’s preferences in order to enhance a User’s experience with A-LIGN or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates and business partners, (d) measure and attempt to predict the effectiveness of the marketing, advertising and sales effort of A-LIGN or one of its subsidiaries, affiliates and business partners.

In addition to the foregoing, if a User has provided its e-mail address to A-LIGN or to a company A-LIGN has partnered with to make their products and services available to the User, A-LIGN may send the User e-mail offers.  Also, A-LIGN may also send a User e-mail offers if the User has provided its e-mail address to a third party and has actively chosen or requested, on an opt-in basis, to receive e-mail offers from other parties.

A-LIGN does not, however, provide a User’s e-mail address to its business partners.  A-LIGN may, however, send a User offers on behalf of its subsidiaries, affiliates, and business partners.  When A-LIGN sends e-mails to a User, A-LIGN may be able to identify information about a User’s e-mail address, including without limitation whether a User can read graphic-rich html e-mails.  If a User’s e-mail address is html-enabled, A-LIGN may choose to send a User graphic-rich html e-mails.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

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;
  • The Service Provider agrees to protect such information in the same manner as the policies set forth in this Policy Statement;
  • A-LIGN has obtained the User’s consent to share the information;
  • A-LIGN needs to share the User’s information in order to provide the service the User has requested;
  • A-LIGN needs to send the information to a Service Provider who works on behalf of A-LIGN to provide a service to you.

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.

Maintenance and Security of Personal Information

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. Said Personal Information is maintained on A-LIGN systems that are protected using industry standard security measures.  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.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

A-LIGN may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If A-LIGN makes any substantial changes in the way it uses a User’s Personal Information, then A-LIGN will post a prominent announcement on its website.  Any such changes shall be effective from the date of posting of any revisions hereto as well as to any existing information then being retained by A-LIGN.
