Alan S. Davis and Steven C. Davis, partners doing business as ASM Development (“ASM Development”) operates the www.guruimporter.com website. It is ASM Development’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ASM Development collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as  the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.  ASM Development’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ASM Development’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ASM Development may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

ASM Development also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. ASM Development only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ASM Development’s websites choose to interact with ASM Development in ways that require ASM Development to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ASM Development gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at guruimporter.com to provide a name, email address and the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ASM Development collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ASM Development. ASM Development does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

ASM Development may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, ASM Development may monitor the most popular pages on the guruimporter.com site.  ASM Development may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ASM Development does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ASM Development discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ASM Development’s behalf or to provide services available at ASM Development’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using ASM Development’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ASM Development will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ASM Development discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ASM Development believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ASM Development, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an ASM Development website and have supplied your email address, ASM Development may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with ASM Development and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ASM Development takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If ASM Development, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that ASM Development goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user 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 ASM Development may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
