Privacy Policy

Rev. 6/2020

Advanced Interconnections Corp. ("Advanced Interconnections") has created this privacy statement to explain why we collect particular information and how we will protect your personal privacy within our Web site. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the Web site located at the URL and any other site provided by Advanced Interconnections (collectively, the "Site"). Advanced Interconnections reserves the right to change this policy at any time by posting a new privacy policy at this location.

What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:

Contact Information:
Some areas of our Site request or require registration. During the registration process, we, either ourselves or through our contracted service providers, collect personally identifiable contact information ("Contact Data") such as your name, job title, company, mailing address, email address, telephone and fax numbers. Your contact information may be used to get in touch with you when necessary with respect to material changes in our Site's policies, to follow-up regarding any data viewed or downloaded from the Site, or otherwise. We may provide Contact Data to certain of our representatives and distributors solely for the purpose of following up with you with respect to our products and services, or to an authorized third party to assist with marketing Advanced Interconnectionsf products, services, or events, but otherwise we do not sell or share your contact information with any third party without your consent, except to a court or governmental agency if required by law.

Internet Protocol Address:
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site, as well as browser data, date and time. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web Site. We do store IP addresses of visitors and use them for the purpose of measuring response to our advertising campaigns. We may also use your IP address to determine the URL from which you came to our Site.

Updating Personal Information:
You may edit or update your personal information at any time through our Site. To update your personal information, go to, log in under your existing user name and password and then click on the Edit Your Registration link.

Use of cookies:
Cookies are pieces of information that some Web Sites transfer to the computer that is browsing that Web Site and are used for record-keeping purposes at many Web Sites. Our Site currently uses a type of cookie called session cookies. Session cookies are used to store information only during a session. These cookies are cached only while a user is visiting the Web server issuing the session cookie and are deleted from the cache when the user closes the session. Our Site does not use persistent cookies, which are cookies that are stored for a length of time that is set by the Web server and are used to store information between visits to a site. However, in the future our Site may use persistent cookies to enhance your experience while using our Site. For example, we may add a shopping cart feature to our e-catalog that will use persistent cookies. Use of cookies makes Web-surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, your personal preferences regarding your use of the particular Web site and to make sure you don't see the same ad repeatedly. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard.

CCPA Privacy Rights (Do Not Sell My Personal Information)
Under the CCPA, among other rights, California consumers have the right to:
  • Request that a business that collects a consumer's personal data disclose the categories and specific pieces of personal data that a business has collected about consumers.
  • Request that a business delete any personal data about the consumer that a business has collected.
  • Request that a business that sells a consumer's personal data, not sell the consumer's personal data.

If you make a request, we have one month to respond to you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us.

GDPR Data Protection Rights
Advanced Interconnections would like to ensure you are fully aware of all of your personal data protection rights. To ensure our obligations under information law are met, the processing of personal information must comply with the principles of GDPR listed in Article 5. 

Consistent with those laws, Advanced gives you the choice of accessing, editing, or removing certain information, as well as choices about how we contact you. You may change or correct your Advanced account information by contacting us. You can also request to permanently close your account and delete your personal information. Depending on your location, you may also benefit from a number of rights with respect to your information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply in limited cases.
  • Right to Access & Portability: You can request a copy of your personal information in an easily accessible format and information explaining how that information is used.
  • Right to Correction: You have the right to request that we rectify inaccurate information about you. 
  • Right to Restrict Processing: In certain cases where we process your information, you may also have the right to restrict or limit the ways in which we use your personal information.
  • Right to Deletion: In certain circumstances, you have the right to request the deletion of your personal information, except information we are required to retain by law, regulation, or to protect the safety, security, and integrity of Advanced. 
  • Right to Object: If we process your information based on our legitimate interests as explained above, or in the public interest, you can object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will cease processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is needed for legal reasons. Where we use your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you can object using the unsubscribe link in such communications or changing your account email settings.
  • Right to Withdraw Consent: Where we rely on consent, you can choose to withdraw your consent to our processing of your information using specific features provided to enable you to withdraw consent, like an email unsubscribe link. This is without prejudice to your right to generally permanently close your account and delete your personal information.

We are committed to upholding the data protection principles. All personal data under our control must be processed in accordance to these principles. 

If you make a request, we have one month to respond to you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us.

The CCPA provides California residents with the following additional rights:
  • Right to Know: California residents may request disclosure of the specific pieces and/or categories of personal information that the business has collected about them, the categories of sources for that personal information, the business or commercial purposes for collecting the information, the categories of personal information that we have disclosed, and the categories of third parties with which the information was shared.
  • Right to Opt-Out: To the extent that Advanced “sells” personal information (as that term is defined under the CCPA), California residents are entitled to opt-out of the “sale” of data at any time (see below for more information).

Please note that we may verify your identity before we are able to process any of the requests described in this Section, and in our discretion, deny your request if we are unable to verify your identity. As a part of this process, government or other identification may be required. You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, you must provide a valid power of attorney, the requester’s valid government issued identification, and the authorized agent’s valid government issued identification, and we may verify the authenticity of the request directly with you.
Children's Information
Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

Advanced Interconnections does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.

This Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The personally identifiable information that we collect about you is stored in well-protected, limited access servers. All systems hosted by Advanced Interconnections and its service providers are behind a firewall with strict access controls preventing unwanted traffic. In addition, all collected data is secured behind a firewall and inaccessible from the internet. Access to this data is strictly limited to the specific customer application and any necessary administrator access in order to maintain that data.

Advanced Interconnections may periodically send out communications based on information collected on this Site. We respect both your privacy and time, and therefore our promotional email is sent sparingly and includes instructions for opting out from further marketing-related email. Separate from promotional email, you may be contacted by our sales representatives and distributors regarding our products and services as a follow-up to your registration on this Site. If you would not like to be so contacted, please send an email to .
