When you visit our website, we may send “cookies” to your computer. A cookie is a small text file or piece of data that a website that you visit can place or save onto your computer. Cookies do not themselves contain any personally identifiable information. However, if you provide such personally identifiable information to us (such as by registering for an Internet related service or password provided by us), such information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. There are two types of cookies. The first type saves a file for a longer period of time onto your computer, and it can remain on your computer after you shut it off. Such cookie could, for example, be used to tell a visitor what information on the website has been updated since his or her last visit to that website. The second type of cookie is called “session cookie.” While you are visiting a website, session cookies are temporarily stored in your computer’s memory. This could be done, for example, to keep track of what language you have chosen at the website. Session cookies are not stored for a long period of time on your computer, since they disappear when you close your web browser. We may use third parties to assist us in collecting or processing information obtained through cookies.

How To Avoid Cookies:
This part explains how we collect, use, and share personal information that you provide to us, or that we may otherwise obtain or generate, which relates to you (“Personal Information”). ABAC has implemented technical, administrative, and physical measures to safeguard any Personal Information that we may collect (see below). It is also clear that ABAC will always abide local laws and regulations and will refrain from the collection or use of Personal Information in a location where it is prohibited by law.
What personal information might ABAC collect?
“Personal Information” is information through which a natural person is identifiable or may be identified. We may collect, use and process your Personal Information in order to provide you with services, products or information that you request.
We will not collect your Personal Information without your knowledge and permission, nor will we sell or rent any such data. In order to provide you with a specific product, service, or information or to process a transaction, we may request your personally identifiable information. This information may include:
– your name, including given, family, middle, and any suffix;
– emergency or work contact information, including telephone numbers, facsimile number, email address, pager number, mailing address, and work location;
– information about an individual’s employer, including company name, company location, and country of incorporation;
– shipping address;

How might ABAC use the Personal Information it collects?
Personal Information is only collected when necessary to provide a product, service, or information, process a transaction, or if you submit it to us for other purposes, for instance if applying for employment.
The collection of Personal Information will be transparent to you (including indication of the legal basis for the processing), and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide it. If you choose not to provide any of the Personal Information requested, ABAC may be unable to complete your transaction, or provide the information, services or products you have requested.
When collected, the Personal Information might be used for the following purposes:
– Maintaining Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”) systems, workflow systems, and other information technology (“IT”) systems, including workflows to document ABAC participation in professional organizations and provision or receipt of business gifts and hospitality;
– Designing, selling, producing and improving products;
– Providing customer service and support;
– Training and certification of customer, supplier, and vendor personnel;
– Performing audits and compliance reviews to ensure compliance with applicable policy, regulation, and law;
– As required or expressly authorised by applicable law or regulation.
This processing is:
– Necessary for the performance of a contract or for the preparation of a contract
– Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation
– Necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interest
At times we may need to get your consent to allow us to use your Personal Information for one or more of the purposes set out above. You have various rights where we are processing your Personal Information on the basis of your consent. For example, we would like to send you information about other products of ours, which believe might be in your interest. If you don’t want to be on one of our mailing lists, you can choose to opt out at any time by following the “unsubscribe” instructions at the bottom of our promotional emails.
Who Personal Information may be shared with:
Because ABAC is a global company with locations in many different countries, we may transfer your Personal Information from one legal entity to another or from one country to another in order to accomplish the purposes listed above. We will transfer your Personal Information consistent with applicable legal requirements and only to the extent necessary for the purposes set out above. Within the ABAC group of companies, Personal Information is transferred subject to the same rules and levels of security. If required, data processing agreements will be in place to ensure the necessary level of protection.
ABAC relies on available legal mechanisms to enable the legal transfer of Personal Information across borders. To the extent that ABAC relies on the standard contractual clauses (also called the model clauses) to authorise transfer, ABAC will comply with those requirements, including where there may be a conflict between those requirements and this Notice.
ABAC will not sell or otherwise share your Personal Information outside the ABAC group of companies, except to:
* service providers ABAC has retained to perform services on our behalf. ABAC will only share your Personal Information with service providers whom ABAC has contractually restricted from using or disclosing the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements;
* comply with legal obligations, including but not limited to, in response to a legitimate legal request from law enforcement authorities or other government regulators;
* investigate suspected or actual illegal activity;
* prevent physical harm or financial loss; or
* support the sale or transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets (including through bankruptcy).

Technical and administrative measures are implemented to help protect Personal Information and other data on our servers from unauthorised access, loss, or alteration.
