Privacy Policy

The Short Version

We don't share your information, period. We don't want our own information shared, so we don't share yours. We only collect the minimum information required to conduct e-commerce transactions or newsletter subscriptions through our web site.

The Long Version

Protecting your privacy is important to us. We hope the following statement will help you understand how Accounting Advisors, Inc. collects, uses and safeguards the personal information you provide to us on our site. This policy applies to our entire web site.

I. Information being collected online
We use a reporting tool from Urchin to track the pages visited within our site and the keywords used within search engines to find our site. This information is not personally identifiable to a specific user, but rather is tracked in the aggregate. We collect e-mail addresses of users that subscribe to our newsletter. We also collect e-mail and physical addresses of customers making purchases from our store. The only portion of our web site that uses cookies is our store. In that regard, cookies are only used to remember the items that you place in your shopping basket.

II. How we use or share the information you collect
We do not share any information that we collect with third parties. The only exception to this policy would be a legally mandated request. We use the e-mail addresses of our newsletter subscribers to send out our periodic newsletter. We use information collected within our store solely for order fulfillment. Verisign processes our credit card transactions in such a fashion that we never physically see your credit card number.

III. Your choices regarding marketing of your information
Newsletter subscribers are free to unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. No other information collected is used for any marketing purposes.

IV. Consumer inquiries about your information or our privacy policy
For further information about how we use your information or our privacy policy, contact David Ringstrom at 404-784-0275 or by e-mail. You may also send correspondence to Accounting Advisors, Inc., 614 Park Avenue SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30312. Our fax number is 404-420-2175.

V. How we protect your information online
As discussed above, we do not physically see or store credit card numbers. During the checkout process, our industry standard Thawte Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol encrypts personal information being transferred over the Internet. We further safeguard your information by limiting employee access on a need-to-know basis.

VI. Updates to our privacy policy
We will periodically update our privacy policy as needed to further protect your information or to conform governmental or marketplace standards. We will announce any changes to our privacy policy on the front page of our web site and in our newsletter.
