Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Website of its manufacturer.

Examples of Cookies we use:

Does AJBoggs Share the Information It Receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.

  • Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with affiliated businesses. In some cases, such as A.J. Boggs IXN hosting services, these businesses use ajboggs.com or sell offerings to you at ajboggs.com. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. Click here for some examples of co-branded and joint offerings. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
  • Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. If you click on a link in our site that takes you to a third-party’s website, and you provide information there, you should see their terms of service and privacy policies (we do not control their use of information you provide directly to them).
  • Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of AJBoggs customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please contact us at info@www.ajboggs.com.
  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that AJBoggs, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
  • Protection of AJBoggs and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of ajboggs.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
  • With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, and unless you have given prior consent, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
