ARI Privacy Policy
Revised: January 16, 2004

At ARI, we are committed to your privacy and have created this policy to demonstrate our commitment to you.

How we use your IP address
We may use your Internet Protocol (IP) address to help diagnose problems with our server and track movement within our web site only to optimize your experience. We may also collect the referring URL, access times and browser type. We will not link this information to any personally identifiable information.

ARI required user-enabled cookies
Our site does use cookies to keep track of items in your shopping cart. These cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information. Furthermore, they expire after 30 days.

Information Collected and Use and Disclosure of Information
Our site's registration form requires users to give us contact information (like your name and e-mail address), and a password. We may use this information to get in touch with you when necessary.

Any information provided will be held in the strictest confidence and we will not and do not collect any personal information unless you specifically and knowingly provide it to us.

We do not sell, rent, loan or give any personal information about our customers to any third parties. Any information collected from individuals is used only by ARI for our customers' convenience.

We will always ask you for permission before sharing your contact information with third parties interested in sending information and promotional offers about their products and services. You can decide whether to participate in future promotional offers.

Sometimes it is necessary for contractors and third-party service providers to access databases containing personally identifiable user information in order to provide services to ARI. ARI endeavors to ensure that that such contractors and service providers are not permitted to use or disclose such information except for the purpose of providing services to ARI.

In addition, ARI may disclose personally identifiable user information to others when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with the requirements of the law or a legal process served on us; (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements; or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of ARI, our users, or others.

E-mail Links
We use e-mail links located on the "Contact Us" page to allow you to contact us directly with any questions or comments you may have. This information is used to respond directly to your questions or comments.

User ID and Password
You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password, including fees or expenses related to its misuse. Therefore we do not recommend that you disclose your ID or password to any third parties. If you choose to share your User ID and password or your information with third parties to provide you additional services, you are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password and therefore you should review that third party's privacy policy. If you lose control of your password, you may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password and notify us.

Links to Other Sites
Users visiting our web site may find links to web sites owned and operated by other organizations. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are moving to another web site. While we reviewed the linked sites at the time of the posting of the link, and only provide a link if we believe the content of a site might be of interest to visitors to our site, the content of those linked sites is the responsibility of the organization actually owning and/or operating the site. ARI is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any such sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these linked sites, because their privacy practices may differ from ours.

ARI takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit any personally identifiable information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. Data is stored on separate servers that exist behind secured firewalls. (A firewall is a built-in computer feature that keeps a Web site or server safe from intrusion by other computer users or other servers).

Changes to our policy
Our Privacy Policy is intended to provide you with the safest and most secure shopping experience possible. We reserve the right to change, modify, add or remove portions of our Privacy Policy at any time, with or without prior notice.. Changes to this Privacy Policy will be posted at this location. We suggest that you periodically review our Privacy Policy.
