Privacy Policy

General

Part of the operation of the ASHFORD CREATIVE, a Texas limited liability company’s website, found at ashfordcreative.com and other websites as may be modified from time to time (collectively, the “Sites”) includes the gathering of certain types of information about ASHFORD CREATIVE users and their companies. Because we understand that your privacy is important to you, we would like to explain the types of information we gather and the way in which we use it. This online privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to the Sites operated by ASHFORD CREATIVE and any affiliated or related companies of ASHFORD CREATIVE that it has at any time, all of which are included in references to “ASHFORD CREATIVE” in this document. It does not necessarily apply to information collected by ASHFORD CREATIVE by means other than through the Sites.

This Privacy Policy covers two types of information gathered at ASHFORD CREATIVE, personal information and aggregated data. “Personal information” refers to data you voluntarily provide in connection with use of the Sites that identifies you and/or the company on whose behalf you are accessing and using the Sites. Personal information includes such identifying information as your name, physical address, e-mail address, phone number, company affiliation, business or taxpayer identification number, and social security number. For example, you might provide personal information when you submit an application for employment or resume, or when you submit information to our Vendor-Partner database. “Aggregated data” refers to general information regarding visitors and users of the Sites that relates to use of the Sites, e.g., traffic patterns, number of visits to certain sections or pages, visits from other Web Sites or to third-party Web Sites linked to ASHFORD CREATIVE’s Sites, use of particular services and information or features of ASHFORD CREATIVE or other parties made available through or found at the Sites.

Use of Personal Information

ASHFORD CREATIVE is committed to protecting the privacy of all of its users. We understand that your personal information and, if applicable, the non-public information about the company you represent is sensitive and private data. ASHFORD CREATIVE may collect and use personal data that you submit at the Sites in any manner that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere on the Sites at the point you submit such personal information. Except as expressly stated in this Privacy Policy, ASHFORD CREATIVE will never willfully disclose or make personal information about you available to any third party without first having provided you notice in this Privacy Policy or receiving your permission at the time you submit the personal information. ASHFORD CREATIVE may share personal information with third parties, in connection with its business, in order to facilitate proper and beneficial use of the features and services offered at this Sites. ASHFORD CREATIVE may also use personal information to contact you to keep you informed of current and future products, services and other opportunities ASHFORD CREATIVE provides.

Personal information that ASHFORD CREATIVE may use may be collected at the Sites, among other ways (1) in the event registration and/or user login is ever required; (2) if you choose to submit personal information when making an email inquiry at the Sites; (3) through submission of a resume or application for employment; or (4) through the ASHFORD CREATIVE Vendor-Partner database.

Permission for Use

At the time you submit personal information or make a request, the intended use of the information you submit will be apparent in the context in which you submit it and/or because ASHFORD CREATIVE states the intended purpose. By submitting personal information at the Sites, you are giving your consent and permission for any use that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere at the Sites at the point you submit such personal information, and such consent will be presumed by ASHFORD CREATIVE, unless you state otherwise at the time you submit the personal information.

PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST ANY SUCH COMMUNICATIONS ON BEHALF OF AN INDIVIDUAL OR COMPANY IF YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO MAKE THE REQUEST AND THE RECIPIENT OF THE COMMUNICATIONS DOES NOT WANT YOU TO DISCLOSE THE REQUESTED INFORMATION.

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

ASHFORD CREATIVE may share your personal information in any of the following circumstances:

  • If you request a bid for services at the Sites, ASHFORD CREATIVE may disclose such personal information to any third-party service provider ASHFORD CREATIVE uses or may use to fulfill any services in connection with such project on which a bid is given.
  • ASHFORD CREATIVE may share your personal information to third-party suppliers in connection with services such third parties provide under an agreement with ASHFORD CREATIVE, e.g., for handling communications such as e-mail newsletters or other communications. In this case, such third party will be restricted to using your personal information only as directed by ASHFORD CREATIVE and only in connection with the business of ASHFORD CREATIVE.
  • Governmental accounts served by the ASHFORD CREATIVE Vendor Partner database may access all Vendor data fields within such database for the purposes of conducting an audit.
  • In connection with any other feature, service or submission you make at the Sites. If you are participating in a feature on the Sites and submitting personal information that ASHFORD CREATIVE may disclose to third parties and this Privacy Policy has not already advised you of such disclosure, then we will let you know at that time. ASHFORD CREATIVE will also give you the opportunity at that time to elect to not have your personal information shared with such third parties. If you do not elect to prevent the sharing of your personal information with third parties at that time, ASHFORD CREATIVE may use it as permitted in this Privacy Policy. However, use of personal information is limited to the purposes disclosed when you submit the information.

Use of Aggregated Data

ASHFORD CREATIVE is interested in improving the Sites and may develop and offer new features and services. We monitor aggregated data regarding use of the Sites for marketing purposes and to study, improve and promote use of the Sites. In connection with such purposes, ASHFORD CREATIVE may share aggregated data with third parties collectively and in an anonymous way. Disclosure of aggregated data does not reveal personal information about individual Site users in any way that identifies who they are or how to contact them. However, disclosure of aggregated data may include the identity of the company or business to which it relates. ASHFORD CREATIVE will not disclose or otherwise share data which ASHFORD CREATIVE knows to be confidential or to be specific competitive, proprietary data regarding the business of a Sites user or the company whose personal information the user has submitted, without the express permission of the user, except to third-party suppliers of ASHFORD CREATIVE who need such information and have an agreement with ASHFORD CREATIVE that restricts use of such data to those purposes authorized by ASHFORD CREATIVE in connection with its business. However, ASHFORD CREATIVE may disclose such specific business data, so long as ASHFORD CREATIVE does not identify the individual or company to whom it pertains and does not reveal the identity of the person, in the case of personal information.

Exceptions to the Privacy Policy

In addition to the disclosures discussed above, ASHFORD CREATIVE may disclose information in other situations:

(1) ASHFORD CREATIVE may monitor and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of ASHFORD CREATIVE from unauthorized use, or misuse, of the Sites or anything found at the Sites, such as information that ASHFORD CREATIVE in good faith believes must be disclosed to correct revisions false or misleading information or to address activities that ASHFORD CREATIVE believes to be manipulative, deceptive or otherwise in violation of law.

(2) ASHFORD CREATIVE may disclose information when required by law; however, only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.

(3) ASHFORD CREATIVE may disclose and transfer information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of our business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event we become the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, ASHFORD CREATIVE or our trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court. You will be notified of sale of all or a substantial portion of ASHFORD CREATIVE’s business to a third party via email or through a prominent notice posted on the Sites.

Use Of Cookies

To enable features at the Sites, ASHFORD CREATIVE may assign one or more “cookies” to your Internet browser. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Sites, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Sites, and may provide you with customized content. A “cookie” is an Internet mechanism composed of a small text file containing a unique identification number that permits a Web server to send small pieces of information or text by means of your browser and place them on your computer’s hard drive for storage. This text lets the Web server know if you have previously visited the Web page. This information may be used to help us dynamically generate personalized advertising and content specifically tailored for you and also allows us to statistically monitor user traffic on our Sites and the concentration of such traffic in certain areas of our Sites.

The cookies used with our Sites can only be read by the server that placed them. In other words, servers of websites that are not affiliated with our servers cannot retrieve the information contained in the cookies placed by our computers on your computer. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot “run” on your computer and have no ability to search your computer for other information, or transmit information contained on your computer’s hard drive to anyone. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. However, most browsers also permit you to refuse cookies and can alert you when cookies are being sent and/or allow you to delete these files. Set your browser’s guidelines or features accordingly, if you wish to prevent cookies. However, please be aware that if you choose to refuse cookies when you are on this Sites, it is possible that some features of the Sites may not function properly.

You may occasionally receive cookies from unaffiliated companies or organizations, to the extent they place advertising on our Sites or are linked to the ASHFORD CREATIVE Sites. If so, these third-party cookies may collect information about you when you “click” on their advertising or content or link. This practice is standard in the Internet industry. Because of the way in which the Internet operates, we cannot control collection of this information by these third parties, and these cookies are not subject to ASHFORD CREATIVE’s privacy policies. As the user of these Sites, you should contact these third-party content and information providers who place information on ASHFORD CREATIVE’s Sites or Web site owners who maintain links with our Sites directly, if you have any questions about their use of the information they may potentially collect.

Children’s Privacy And Parental Consent

Please be aware that ASHFORD CREATIVE has not designed its Sites for,and does not intend for it to be used by, anyone under age 13. Accordingly, the Sites should not be used by anyone under age 13. Should ASHFORD CREATIVE inadvertently acquire personal information or other data from users under the age of 13, ASHFORD CREATIVE will not knowingly provide this data to any third party for any purpose whatsoever, and any subsequent disclosure would be due to the fact the user under age 13 used the Sites and submitted personal information without solicitation by or permission from ASHFORD CREATIVE.

General Information Regarding Online Privacy and Information You Provide

At ASHFORD CREATIVE we strive to protect your privacy and will attempt to comply with every aspect of this Privacy Policy. Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure the security of the information you send us over the Internet 100% of the time. For example, ASHFORD CREATIVE does not generally use encryption and cannot protect against all unauthorized access. Consequently, ASHFORD CREATIVE makes no guarantee or warranty with respect to this Privacy Policy, including  without limitation, protecting your privacy, the privacy of any company for whom you may be using the Sites, or the confidentiality of information about either of you. Therefore, when you supply information to ASHFORD CREATIVE, you and any company on whose behalf you supply such information do so at your own risk and you both assume full responsibility for the security, confidentiality and use of such information.

Links Provided To Other Sites

It is important to note that ASHFORD CREATIVE may provide links to a number of other Web sites that we believe might offer you useful information and services. However, those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as ASHFORD CREATIVE. Therefore, we are not responsible for the privacy policies or the actions of any third parties, including without limitation, any Web site owners whose sites may be reached through the Sites, nor can we control the activities of those Web sites. These links may include links to third parties such as advertisers, content providers and business partners and other suppliers who may (a) use the ASHFORD CREATIVE logo and or style as a result of a co-branding agreement, (b) be linked to ASHFORD CREATIVE, and/or (c) participate in providing one of the services or features offered through ASHFORD CREATIVE. We suggest that you contact the relevant parties controlling these Sites or accessing their online policies for the relevant information about their data collection practices.

Changes to Privacy Policy

Because the Internet is a rapidly evolving medium and because our business may change, ASHFORD CREATIVE reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. You should occasionally return to the posted Privacy Policy see if any changes have been made and to advise ASHFORD CREATIVE as soon as possible if you want ASHFORD CREATIVE to cease using any personal information you have submitted.

If we decide to materially change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes through a prominent notice on the Sites so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and to whom we will disclose it.
