Axcient does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties. We share your Personal Information only with your consent or to business partners and affiliates as described below:
- Agents: We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you.

You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.
- Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Axcient, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Axcient may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.

In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Axcient may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Axcient, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Axcient does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Axcient keeps track of the websites and pages you visit within Axcient, in order to determine what Axcient services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Axcient to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Axcient website will disclose your personal information, without notice, only 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 Axcient or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Axcient (including enforcing this agreement); and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Axcient, or the public.
The Axcient website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with the Axcient site or services, a cookie helps Axcient recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Axcient website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Axcient features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Axcient services or websites you visit. If you provide Axcient with user information, you have the following rights with respect to that information:
- To review the user information that you have supplied to us
- To request that we correct any errors, outdated information, or omissions in user information that you have supplied to us
- To request that your user information not be used to contact you
- To request that your user information be removed from any solicitation list that we use
- To request that your user information be deleted from our records
- To opt out of being solicited by this website or third parties
If you request that your user information be deleted from our records, there may be a brief delay in our processing that request, while we verify that the request is valid and originates from you as opposed to an unauthorized third party. If you request that your information be deleted, we reserve the right to terminate and/or limit your access to the Axcient website and services.
To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at [email protected].
Security of your Personal Information
No method of safeguarding information is 100% secure.
