ABS Global has long recognized that individuals with whom we conduct business value their privacy. However, in order to conduct global business in the increasingly electronic economy, the collection of personal information is often necessary and desirable. It is ABS' goal to balance the benefits of e-commerce with the right of individuals to prevent the misuse of their personal information. This privacy statement does not apply to offline collection of information.
The Collection of Personal Information:
In some circumstances, ABS may request personal information from you, like your name, email address, company name or telephone number. Your response to these inquiries is strictly voluntary. ABS uses this information to customize your experience on our websites. In addition, ABS may use this information for other business purposes, such as to alert you to products and services that can assist you in your business, promoting site registration, and assisting in order processing. In general, you can visit our site without divulging any personal information. However, there are areas of this site that require this information to complete their customization functions, and may not be available to those choosing not to reveal the information requested.
