Welcome to American Vintage Bicycles (hereafter AVB). We understand that privacy online is important to our visitors, especially when conducting business. This statement governs our privacy policies for those who visit AVB and who make use of the various services offered.
You can visit our website without revealing any information about yourself. Our web server automatically recognizes each visitor’s IP address, which can be associated with your Internet service provider. This does not provide us with personally identifiable information. Personally, identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, e-mail addresses, etc., is collected only when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. The information you provide is used only to fulfill your specific request, unless you permit us to use it in another manner, for example, to add you to one of our mailing lists.
The personally identifiable information collected by AVB is securely stored and is not accessible to third parties or employees of AVB except for use as indicated above. We will disclose personally identifiable information to comply with a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency to release information. We will also disclose personally identifiable information when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our visitors. Should we ever need to make an exception, we will say so at the point where you are giving the information.
We use third-party advertising companies (such as Google AdSense but not exclusively) to provide ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (NOT including your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Electronic records are kept to compile statistics regarding our visitor’s interaction with our website. In no way do these statistics contain any personal information. By voluntarily providing us with information about yourself, you are consenting to our use of it per this policy.
Information submitted or provided to us by a website user, whether the general public or a professional, regarding us or our products or services, including but not limited to ideas for new products or services or modifications to existing products or services, will be considered to be non-confidential. We will feel free to reproduce, disclose, and distribute the same without attribution or limitation.
Cookies are small text files that websites store on your computer’s hard drive. When they are supplied from our site, they contain information you have given us and are intended to be a convenience to you. They eliminate the need to enter your name and e-mail address in certain forms on our site. They may also record how often you visit our website, or what pages you looked at, so that we may distinguish how many unique visitors we have, how often we are visited, and how many pages are viewed by each visitor. This information may be provided in aggregate to advertisers (for example, “we had 150,000 unique visitors last week”).
