Accent Alarms, Inc. is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information. This privacy statement applies to the network of Accent Alarms web sites and services that display the Accent Alarms logo or trademark, or are located in the Accent Alarms website. By using accentalarms.com, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of Your Personal Information
Accent Alarms explicitly asks when it needs information that personally identifies you ("personal information"). We will collect such information when, for example, you request information about Accent Alarms services, you enter a sweepstakes or respond to a survey on a Accent Alarms site, or you subscribe to a Accent Alarms service. Personal information we collect can include your e-mail address, name, address, telephone number, and credit card number, as applicable.
Accent Alarms also collects certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your ip address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring web site addresses. This information is used by Accent Alarms for the operation of its sites and services, to maintain quality of the services, and to provide general statistics regarding use of Accent Alarms sites and services.
Accent Alarms will not use your customer information for the purpose of sending unsolicited commercial e-mail.
Use of Your Personal Information
Accent Alarms and our affiliates and service partners use your personal information to operate the Accent Alarms web sites and to provide the services you have requested. The information is also used to communicate with you regarding your Accent Alarms accounts by sending out periodic communications that are considered as essential to the operation of the service.
We use your e-mail address to respond to incoming service and support requests from you, to collect customer feedback, customer satisfaction surveys, sweepstakes notices, and other service informational mailings.
We ask for your postal address because some of our services require a mailing address so that we can completely perform the service. For example, we need your postal address for our revenue avenue* service so that we can mail you checks for the money you earn from affiliate programs. We may also use this information for credit card validation.
Accent Alarms may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Accent Alarms or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Accent Alarms; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Accent Alarms employees, users of Accent Alarms products or services, or members of the public.
Personal information collected by Accent Alarms may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Accent Alarms or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Accent Alarms abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Sharing Your Personal Information with Other Companies
Except as otherwise described in this statement, Accent Alarms will share your personal information with other companies only with your consent. For example, when subscribing to a service which involves a third party to facilitate the service, your personal information will be shared. Revenue avenue, for example, provides your contact information to affiliate program owners only with your consent so they can respond to specific customer requests to join their affiliate networks. Without this relationship, revenue avenue could not provide its service to you.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as packaging and delivering purchases and other mailings, providing customer service, performing statistical analysis of our services, or providing other essential elements of the site. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the product or service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of that information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Account specific communications include information that is essential for the Accent Alarms services to operate properly. This includes the initial welcome mail describing features and guides to a particular service. It also includes any communications describing any changes or updates to a particular service or billing schedule. Because account specific communications are essential to providing the customer with the most current information on Accent Alarms services these types of communications will be sent to all Accent Alarms customers when appropriate. These types of communications are considered an essential part of the service for which you have signed-up and you will not be able to unsubscribe from such mailings.
