You acknowledge that your use of portions of the website may be conditional on your provision of such information.

AGL and AGL’s vendors may use the information collected for various purposes, including (1) providing services to you; (2) providing communications required by law; (3) opening, maintaining, and closing accounts; (4) processing payments or requests for services; (5) marketing or promoting our services; (6) performing fulfillment functions; (7) engaging third party service providers to perform transportation or logistics services; (8) conducting surveys; and (9) improving the website.

AGL may retain and use certain collected information to facilitate and otherwise address inquiries, business transactions and relationships with AGL, respond to questions or requests for information, and ensure compliance with AGL’s policies and applicable laws. AGL may also exchange collected information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, credit risk reduction, and collection activities.

 

  1. Disclosure of information

In addition to the uses mentioned or described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy or in the Terms of Use, we may catalog and add information collected via the website to our database. We may also share your information with any of our affiliates or subsidiaries for the purpose of providing the website, for any purpose described in this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, or for any other lawful purposes. Also, we may, from time to time, utilize a number of trusted business and marketing partners in delivering the content, materials, and opportunities available on or through the website. To the extent necessary for purposes of communicating with you or fulfilling your requests for such content, materials, and opportunities, we may share collected information with our affiliates or business partners. AGL also may release certain information collected via the website in connection with joint marketing efforts and strategic alliances.

No personal information submitted to us will be shared with or sold to any other company or individual for marketing purposes without prior authorization. We may provide certain of your personal information to our employees and trusted business counterparties but will do so solely in the course of performing services you have requested. We and our respective trusted business partners and third party services providers may also produce reports and aggregate statistics about the visitors to the website, including reports on the website’s traffic or usage patterns, and share these statistics and reports with our affiliates, business partners, or others, but the information contained in these statistics and reports will be anonymous and will not include any information that identifies you.

In addition to any other rights granted in this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, AGL may also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AGL; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of AGL; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees, users of our products or services or members of the public.

As AGL grows and develops its business, it is possible that its corporate structure or organization might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that it or portions of its business might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, customer information generally is, and should be expected to be, one of the transferred business assets.

 

  1. Communications

The website may provide you with the opportunity to choose to receive future communications about AGL’s products and services. If you authorize these communications, AGL may contact you periodically with such information. However, if you later change your mind and would like to stop receiving such communications, please contact us at the address listed below and let us know that you would like to be removed from all further communications or click the link at the bottom of any email you receive from us and follow the instructions. AGL will promptly handle all requests to opt-out of or opt-down from communications. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process. Please note that even if you opt-out as described above, AGL may retain your collected information (including personal information) for analytical purposes and other internal purposes, including an ability to reconnect you with such information if you later opt-in to any services or functionalities provided via the website.

Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies.

We encourage you to seek out and read the privacy policy of each website that you visit. In addition, should you happen to initiate a transaction on a linked website or third party application, even if you reached such site or application through the website, the information that you submit to complete that transaction becomes subject to the privacy practices of the operator of the applicable website or third party application.
