AET Partners, LLC Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy below governs your AET Partners account and any information you provide on this site.
1.0   Overview  
 
In order for AET Partners, LLC to operate a web enabled Project Management system and to allow third-party access we must take steps to reduce the risk of fraud. AET Partners ("AETP" or "we") must ask you to provide us information about yourself and your business. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect and how we use that information. AETP takes the privacy of your personal and company information very seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information or a list of our customers to third parties. However, as described in more detail in Part 2 below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all services that are hosted on the AETPartnersllc.com Web site.

This Privacy Policy will notify you of the folowing:

  1. What personally identifiable information of yours is collected by AETP.
  2. How the information is used.
  3. With whom the information may be shared.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, feel free to contact us.

By accepting the Privacy Policy and User Agreement in registration, you expressly consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the terms of the AETP User Agreement. This Privacy Policy will take effect on April 1st, 2013. This Privacy Policy was last updated on April 08, 2013.

Please note that your personal information will be stored and processed on our computers in the United States. The laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your country but AETP will hold and transmit your personal information in a safe, confidential and secure environment. If you object to your personal information being transferred or used as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not register and use the services of AETP.

Notification of Changes
This policy may be revised over time as new features are added to the service offering of AETP or as we incorporate suggestions from our customers.

We will post the amended Privacy Policy prominently on our Web site so that you can always review what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. Please check the AETP Web site at any time for the most current version of our Privacy Policy.

A Special Note About Children
Children are not eligible to use our service and we ask that minors (under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us or use our Project Management services.
2.0   Information we Collect  
 
Required Information
To open an AETP Account, you must provide your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. We also ask you to choose a security question to answer (such as your city of birth or your pet's name). This required information is necessary for us to set access priviledges, issue a new password if you forget or lose your password, and to contact you should the need arise in administering your account.

Transaction Information
When you use AETP to review Project Information we may ask you to provide information related to each transaction. We also collect the Internet address (IP address) of the computer or device you use to access your AETP account in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorized transactions.

Information About You From Third Parties
In order to protect all our Clients against potential fraud, we verify with third parties the information you provide. In the course of such verification, we receive personally identifiable information about you from such services.

Web Site Traffic Information
Because of the way that World Wide Web communication standards work, when you arrive at or leave the AETP Web site, we automatically receive the Web address of the site that you came from or are going to. We also collect information on which pages of our Web site you visit while you are on the AETP site, the type of browser you use and the times you access our Web site. We use this information only to try to understand our Clients' preferences better and to manage the load on our servers, so as to improve our service and your experience with AETP. We do not track the Web sites that you visit before or after you leave the AETP site.

Customer Service Correspondence
If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, we retain such information in the records of your account. We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from AETP to you. We retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our User Agreement. We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.
3.0   Our Use and Disclosure of Information  
 
Internal Uses
We collect, store and process your personal information on servers located in the United States. We use the information we collect about you in order 1) to provide our Project Management services and process your transactions, 2) to provide customer service, and 3) to improve our products and services.

We give access to individually identifiable information about our users only to those employees who require it to fulfill customer service requests.

Disclosure to Third Parties
AETP will not share any of your personally identifiable information with third parties except in the limited circumstances described below. These third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information is shared.
  1. We disclose information that we in good faith believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our User Agreement. Specifically, this means that if we conduct a fraud investigation and conclude that one side has engaged in deceptive practices, we can give that person or entity's contact information to victims who request it.
  2. We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action.
  3. We disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).
  4. We share aggregated statistical data with our business partners or for public relations. For example, we may disclose that a specific percentage of our Clients live in Texas. However, this aggregated information is not tied to personally identifiable information.
  5. As with any other business, it is possible that AETP in the future could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by AETP, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Privacy Policy unless and until it is amended as described in the Section above.

Our Contacts with AETP Clients
We communicate with users on a regular basis via e-mail to provide requested services, and we also communicate by phone to resolve customer complaints or investigate suspicious transactions. We use your e-mail address to confirm your opening of an AETP account, to send you notice of important changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.

We also use your e-mail address to send you other types of communications that you can control, including notification of new Project Locations and features. You can choose whether to receive some, all or none of these communications when you complete the registration process, or at any time thereafter, by logging in to your account on the AETP Web site and changing your preferences in the User Security Utility located on the User Homepage. You can also change your choices at any time through the same procedure.

Internet Address Information
We use IP addresses, browser types and access times to analyze trends, administer the site, improve site performance and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Your Use of Information and Our Services
Our service allows an Account to have up to 25 members that all share a single account space. This feature allows members to review items on-line and communicate interactively ... all at the same time, if they desire. In order to facilitate the communication between co-members in an AETP Account our service allows you limited access to other users' contact information. You may have access to a co-members Username (although NOT their password), email address, etc.

By entering into our User Agreement, you agree that, with respect to other users' personally identifiable information that you obtain through the site or through an AETP-related communication or AETP-facilitated transaction, you will only use this information for AETP-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages.

Under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose personally identifiable information about another AETP user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure. Note that law enforcement personnel and other rights holders are given different rights with respect to information they access.
4.0   Information Security  
 
Information Security
AETP is committed to handling your customer information with high standards of information security. We restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that guard your personal information.

The security of your AETP account also relies on your protection of your AETP password. You may not share your AETP password with anyone. AETP will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the AETP website, which will always have a URL beginning with https://www.aetpartnersllc.com/.

Any e-mail or other communication requesting your password, asking you to provide sensitive account information via email, or linking to a website with a URL that does not begin with https://www.aetpartnersllc.com/ should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported to AETP immediately. If you do share your AETP password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional information about your Project, the third party will have access to your account and your personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account and changing your User Security settings. Also contact us right away.
5.0   Accessing and Changing Your Information  
 
You can review the personal information you provided us and make any desired changes to such information, or to the settings for your AETP account, at any time by logging in to your account on the AETP Web site and change your preferences in the User Security Utility section of the User Account Homepage. You can also close your account through the HNNG Web site. (Actually, only the designated Master Key Holder can close an account). If you close your AETP account, we will mark your account in our database as "Inactive", but will keep your account information in our database. This is necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new account.
6.0   Contacting Us  
 
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, AETP's information practices, or your dealings with AETP, you can contact us by email, call 918-333-5777 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00am and 5:30pm CST, or write us at AET Partners, 322 NE DeBell Ave., Bartlesville, OK 74006.
