Personal Information



How Personal Information is Collected and Used

Registration

During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and a verifiable email address). ATMA uses this information to identify you and/or contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest.

You may optionally provide other related information if applicable (such as name, position, professional license number, organisation address, organisation phone number, organisation website, organisation logo or property photos) to ATMA; we encourage you to submit this information accurately so it can be reflected properly on any saved data, printed data or pdf created by you through the Site.


Surveys

From time-to-time ATMA may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on the site. If you participate, ATMA will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.


Use of Personal Information Within ATMA


Supplementation of Information

In order to provide certain valuation or marketing based services to you, ATMA may on occasion supplement the personal information you submitted to ATMA with information from third party sources.


Profile

ATMA may store information that it collects through cookies, sessions, log files, clear gifs, web beacons, and/or third party sources to create a “profile” of your preferences. ATMA may tie your personally identifiable information to information in the profile, in order to provide tailored marketing offers and to improve the content of the site for you.

ATMA does not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information other than what is explained above under ‘Profile’.


Updates, Newsletters and Service-related Announcements

Based on Personal Information you provide ATMA through the Site, ATMA will occasionally send you information on updates to the site, newsletters and service related-announcements.


Log Files

As is true of most Web sites, ATMA may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

ATMA uses this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about ATMA’s user base as a whole.

ATMA may link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information to ensure that ATMA’sTerms of Use are complied with.


Customer Service

Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide ATMA, ATMA will send you a welcoming email to verify your email address. ATMA will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account.


When Personal Information is shared outside ATMA

ATMA will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey with other third parties unless ATMA gives you prior notice and choice.

ATMA does not share your profile individually with other third parties. If shared, ATMA shares your profile in aggregate form only. This may be used to determine the number of unique users or number of unique requests to our site or aggregated data based on unique user provided data which could be shown on theSite or in media releases. For example ATMA may show the number of unique users by state code without individually identifying you or your exact location.

ATMA may share personally identifiable information with third parties for the purposes of determining the number of unique users or unique page views. This information may include location and/or device information.


Security of Your Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to ATMA. When you enter sensitive information such as passwords on our registration or login forms, ATMA encrypts that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

ATMA follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to ATMA, both during transmission and upon ATMA’s receipt of it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while ATMA strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, ATMA cannot guarantee its absolute security.



Non-Personal Information



ATMA shares aggregated demographic information about ATMA’s user base with ATMA’s partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users. This may be used for targeted add marketing or to develop aggregated user data for media purposes.

ATMA may also use third party applications,to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to theSite in the aggregate. The data collected may contain but may not be limited to device or location data which helps ATMA improve your unique experience.



Special Information Transmission Clauses



Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. ATMA may use cookies on theSite. ATMA uses both session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies. ATMA uses session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate theSite. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file

ATMA may set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable ATMA to track and target the interests of ATMA’s users to enhance the experience on theSite.

If you reject cookies, your ability to use some areas of theSite will be limited. Some of ATMA’s partners (e.g., advertisers) may use cookies on theSite. ATMA has no access to or control over these cookies.

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by ATMA only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


Clear Gifs(Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

ATMA may employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that helps ATMA better manage content on theSite by informing ATMA what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. ATMA may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to ATMA’s customers’ personally identifiable information.

ATMA may use clear gifs in ATMA’s HTML-based emails to let ATMA know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows ATMA to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of ATMA’s marketing campaigns.


Information Accessible through Links to Other Websites on the Site

This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by ATMA. Please be aware that ATMAis not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. ATMA encourages you to be aware when you leave theSite and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

This privacy statement applies only to information collected by the site.



Disclosure of Information



ATMA reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when ATMA believes that disclosure is necessary to protect ATMA’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site. The legal proceeding or request may prohibit ATMA from contacting you and informing you of this request.



Amendments to the Privacy Policy



ATMA may amend this policy from time to time. Use of information ATMA collects now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. The most current version of the ATMA Privacy Policy will govern ATMA’s collection, use, and disclosure of information about you. By continuing to access or use the Site after those changes become effective, you agree to the revised Privacy Policy.
