This Privacy Policy, with an effective date of December 2010, covers the treatment of personally identifiable information by Atlantic Diving Supply, Inc. (“ADS”, “we” “us” or “our”), collected online or on the website, http://www.adsinc.com, or any subdomain thereof, (“Site”) from time to time, including without limitation, when you: (1) register or apply for an online account, (2) complete the ADS CONTACT FORM, (3) request a catalog, (4) access the Site online, (5) sign up for our newsletter, (6) or otherwise request information about products or services from ADS electronically (collectively, “Online Activities”). This policy also covers the treatment of any personally identifiable information that any ADS business partners may share with ADS. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that ADS does not own or control, or to people that ADS does not directly employ or manage.

ADS is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site. ADS collects personally identifiable information from its users at several different points on its Site. ADS does not sell or share personal customer information in any form with any outside company or organization unless required by law. ADS will not sell your personal information to any third party, without your prior consent.

USES OF INFORMATION
The Site or ADS may collect personal information during your Online Activities. Non-Personal identifying information may be used to assist us with future marketing placement.

We will not sell or rent your personal identifiable information to anyone. We may share personal identifiable information about you to other companies or people when ADS: (1) must respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, (2) finds that your actions on the Site violate the Site’s Terms of Use, (3) has your consent to share the information, (4) needs to share your information to provide the information, newsletter, product or service you have requested, or (5) needs to send the information to companies who work on behalf of ADS to provide information, products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, these companies do not have any right to use the identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is required by your request.

ADVERTISEMENTS, LINKS, AND THIRD PARTY SITES
ADS does not control, partner with, or have special relationships with any third party advertisers, links or sites. The owners of any unrelated web sites, such as third party online retailers, advertisers, or unrelated sites that the Site may happen to link to, or web sites that link to the Site, may collect personal information directly from you. The information policies and practices of these unrelated parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy. ADS does not control the privacy policies of third parties, advertisers, sponsors of other sites, or businesses, even if the Site may provide hyperlinks or other access to their web sites. ADS is not responsible or liable for such third parties’ independent policies and practices. Please note that when you voluntarily disclose personal information in emails, blogs or other online resources, any of that disclosed information may be collected by others.

COOKIES
This site may utilize cookies. A cookie is a small text file that a website can place on your computer hard drive in order to collect information about your activities and your IP address used on the website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you have the option to change your browser to decline them. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s essential features, such as your stored shopping cart, we recommend that you leave them turned on. The cookies on our Site are not used to identify anonymous site visitors. Our cookies enable you to proceed smoothly through our sites and enable us to know whether you have visited our sites before to eliminate some steps that are directed to new visitors The information the cookies collect does not include your personal information.

SECURITY
ADS uses the industry standard encryption protocol known as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to keep your information secure. ADS has taken every reasonable precaution to fully protect all your sensitive personal information by using a secure 128-bit encryption online ordering system. When you enter a secure page, you will see the SSL Secured (128 Bit) icon at the bottom of your browser. This icon signifies that, for your safety, any personal information you enter online is encrypted.

HOW TO TELL YOUR CONNECTION IS SECURE
On the bottom of your web browser you will see a padlock or similar image (depending on your browser), which is in what appears to be a locked position.

The beginning of the web address in your web browser will always begin with “https://”. Traditionally a web address begins with “http”. The added “s” stands for security.

Use your browser’s Certificate Information option (see browser help files on how).

BROWSER COMPATIBILITY
ADS will make all reasonable offers not to offer less than 128-bit encryption. If you get an error message telling you that you need a browser that supports 128-bit encryption, you must upgrade your browser. See your browser help files for more information.
