Technology

In addition to information that you provide to us directly, we may collect additional information about your interactions with our Sites, such as usage, viewing, and technical data including your browser information or IP address through various technologies.

  • Cookies: A “cookie” is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain websites. We use cookies to collect, store, and sometimes track information for statistical purposes to operate and improve the products and services we provide and to manage our network and property. We also use cookies to save your personal settings and to provide customizable and personalized services. To measure site activity and provide a better user experience, we may allow our service providers or business partners to compile information from the cookies, Web beacons or other technologies on our websites which may include information about your visit (such as demographic data, browser type, IP address, pages visited, activities conducted on the page and the day and time of your visit). We may also allow third party advertising and personalization partners to use this information to develop personalized content and appropriate advertising based on your visits over time on ACB website and non-ACB web sites.
  • Log Data: When you visit our Site, whether as a member, a guest or as a visitor just browsing, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website, called “log data.” This log data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type or the website from which you are visiting, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for, access times and dates, and other statistics.
  • Web Analytics: We may use third party web analytics services such as Google Analytics on this Site or on social media platforms. The service providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyse how visitors use the Site. The information collected through these means (including IP address) is disclosed to these service providers, who use the information to evaluate use of the Site. We may also generate aggregate, non-identifying profiles from information provided during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of members), as well as through online surveys and promotions with select advertisers. We may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on our Sites and Services.
  • Other Technology: ACB engages third parties to track and analyse individual usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit our Sites by recording clickstream behaviour, including what information is displayed on the screen to the visitor, which pages visitors go to most often and whether visitors receive error messages from certain pages. This information is used to enhance the functionality and features of our Site, and for troubleshooting purposes.

We may contract with third-party advertising companies that collect IP addresses and other information through the use of cookies, web server logs and web beacons on our Sites and emails; on third-party websites and emails; and on our advertising placed on third-party websites. These companies may use information about your visits to the Site and other websites in order to provide advertisements on other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you (including for companies not affiliated with us).

We may enhance or merge non-personally identifiable and/or personally identifiable information that you provide to us directly with information from other sources, including third parties, for the purposes described below. We may also collect publicly available information from affiliated and unaffiliated third parties. At this time, we do not honor “do not track” signals from website browsers. However, you may refuse or delete cookies. If you refuse or delete cookies, some of the functionality of our Site may be impaired. If you turn off cookies, web logs and other technologies will still detect visits to our Site, but the information they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded. Please refer to your browser Help instructions to learn more about how to manage cookies and the use of similar technologies.
