California Privacy Rights Notice

 

California has two data protection laws; the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Both are intended to protect the privacy of consumers in California. "Consumers" refers to anyone residing in California.

 

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is essentially designed to regulate social networks, data brokers and large corporations. Atlantic Im- & Export Corp is not required to comply with the CCPA as it does not fall within the parameters of how the law defines what businesses it applies to.  

 

The California Online Privacy Protection Act CalOPPA applies to "An operator of a commercial Web site or online service that collects personally identifiable information through the Internet about individual consumers residing in California who use or visit its commercial Web site or online service [...]." 

 

This Privacy Policy describes how Atlantic Im- & Export Corp complies with CalOPPA as well as legislation from other jurisdictions that may be similar. It also includes elements that go beyond CalOPPA’s minimum requirements to incorporate qualities of the CCPA and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

 

The following provisions apply to our processing of information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with personally identifiable information both online and offline.

 

Sale of Your Personally Identifiable Information

Atlantic Im- & Export Corp does not sell any personally identifiable information. CalOPPA defines this as "individually identifiable information about an individual consumer collected online by the operator from that individual and maintained by the operator in an accessible form."

 

Your Rights

We support certain rights related to your California personally identifiable information. These include:

  • Access - You have the right to request that we disclose and deliver the categories of personally identifiable information we have collected about you, or the specific pieces of personally identifiable information the business has collected about you;

  • Deletion - You have the right to request the deletion of your personally identifiable information in certain situations, except where the law allows a business to maintain a Consumer’s personally identifiable information, including where the personally identifiable information is necessary to perform a contract or transaction between the business and the purchaser;

  • Non-Discrimination - You have the right to not be discriminated against, including but not limited to the right to not be charged different prices or rates for products or services or denying you access to products or services, on the basis of your decision to exercise any of your rights described herein.

  • Opt-Out - You have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personally identifiable information, but as stated above, Atlantic Im- & Export Corp does not sell your personally identifiable information.

 

You may exercise these rights by sending an email to geninfo@atlanticim.com

 

As required under applicable law, please note that we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights. We may require you to provide additional personal information as necessary to verify your identity in response to exercising requests of the above type. We may limit our response to your exercise of the above rights as permitted under applicable law. Under California law, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. You may make such a designation by providing the agent with written permission to act on your behalf. As permitted by law, we may require you to verify your own identity in response to a request even if you choose to use an agent. We may deny a request by an agent if they fail to submit proof that they act on your behalf.

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can also do the following at any time by contacting us via email geninfo@atlanticim.com:

Do Not Track signals 

The ability for our website to respond to a Do Not Track signal from your browser falls upon Wix.com, the platform we used to build this website. Wix states in their privacy policy that their platform does not respond to Do Not Track signals.

 

Controlling your own Do Not Track settings

You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or using a search engine such as Google to find guidance pertaining to how to control cookies on your browser. We also suggest keeping your browser version up-to-date. If you haven't already, set your browser to update automatically. This eliminates security vulnerabilities caused by outdated browsers. Many cookie-based exploits are based on exploiting older browsers' security shortcomings.

Use of Cookies

Like most similar websites, we may use cookies and other technologies to enhance your online experience and to learn about how you use our website and services.

 

While most browsers accept cookies by default, you can manually set your browser to refuse all cookies, accept cookies from specific websites, or highlight when a cookie is sent to your browser. Our servers may also automatically record information when you visit our website, including the URL that directed you to our website, your IP address, browser type and the date and time of your visit.

 

By using this website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

 

Due to their core role of enhancing/enabling usability or site processes, disabling cookies may prevent users from using certain websites.

 

About cookies

A “cookie” is a small file containing a string of characters that uniquely identifies your browser. These files, often encrypted, are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website. (See the table below to learn about the cookies our website uses.)

 

Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. By default, web pages really don't have any “memory.” Some cookies tell the server what pages to show the user so the user doesn't have to remember or start navigating the site all over again.

 

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

 

Our company website is built and hosted on the Wix.com platform. The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator, Wix.com. Wix and Wix applications use cookies in every site built on the Wix.com platform. Their cookies are essential for performance, tracking and security. Reasons include:

  • Providing a great experience for website visitors and customers.

  • Identifying users who registered as members of the website by creating a user name and password.

  • Monitoring and analyzing the performance, operation and effectiveness of Wix's platform.

  • Gaining insights into our online business performance.

  • Ensuring our website is secure and safe to use.

Visitor-Analytics.io  -  loadbalancer.visitor-analytics.io

Visitor-Analytics is a simple website analytics service provided by Wix, our website platform, which measures the traffic on our website and website visitors' general details. With Visitor-Analytics we may collect statistics like which pages visitors visit and when, where they are approximately located, where they land first or if they are coming from a specific referral, to make our website visitors' experience better.

 

As a website operator using Visitor-Analytics, we may process information about our visitors' device type and screen size/resolution, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions, conversion funnels, average sessions per visitor, average pages per session, average session duration, time spent on the website and preferably visited content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized. We and Visitor-Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match the data with additional information on an individual user.

 

Visitor-Analytics does not use cookies to collect this data. Instead, they use the so-called fingerprinting technology that does not require placing any cookies, files or technology on your device. Fingerprinting relies on your device’s technical attributes and combines them to identify your device as a unique device and allow for reliable analytics.

 

“loadbalancer.visitor-analytics.io” is sometimes blocked by browsers automatically.

 

Other Websites

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

 

Email you send to us

If you send us inquiries, correspondence or file attachments via email, the information you send, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and to facilitate follow-up questions. This information will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed).

 

Data security on the internet

While we strive to protect your information, unfortunately data transmission over the Internet (including when communicating by email) is not 100% secure and it can have security gaps. Third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible and we cannot ensure, warrant of guarantee the security or confidentiality of information you transmit to us or receive from us. "Perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
