Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the ACE official website (referred to as the “Website”). Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used at this site.

Third party partners of the Website and other websites you may access via the Website have different privacy policies and are not subject to this privacy policy. We recommend that you read the privacy statement of each such website to find out how they protect your personal information.

Collection and Use of User Details

When you visit or register at the Website, we collect personal details about you.

Personal information such as your name, address and e-mail address may be collected via the Website’s registration forms.

When you visit the site, we also collect website usage information and information about your computer and internet connection, including your computer’s IP address, the type and version of browser and operating system you use, your internet domain and, if you arrived at the Website via a link from another website, the URL of the linking page.

We use this information to:

  • Fulfil requests or orders
  • Allow reputable third parties to send you information (if you opt-in to receiving such information)
  • Ensure, as far as is practical, that our site is compatible with the browsers and operating systems used by most of our visitors

We also use the information for in-house research to:

  • Improve our understanding of customer needs in developing the Website
  • Build marketing profiles
  • Aid strategic development
  • Manage our relationship with partners, sponsors and advertisers

The results of all such research and analysis will be presented as anonymous or aggregated information and will not reveal any personal facts about individual customers. Steps have been taken to ensure that high standards of data protection are adhered for all the forms of processing mentioned above.

How We Use the Information

We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when we make changes to subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you about your account with us.

If you choose to submit content for publication, we may publish your screen name and other information you have provided to us.

We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.

We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request.

Executives and technicians of UTChinese Network who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for ACE / UTChinese Network.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.

We may share your information with certain reputable third parties in order to fulfil your order or request or in order to obtain professional advice.

Other than described above, we will not provide third parties with your personal data, unless you have given us your consent to do so, or if it is necessary for the performance of the services that you wish us to provide, or if the provision to third parties is otherwise required by law or by order of a Court of competent jurisdiction.

UTChinese Network may on occasion combine information we receive online with outside records to enhance our ability to market to you those products or services that may be of interest to you.

The Website will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

Collection of Information by Third-Party Websites and Sponsors

Some of our websites contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different to ours. You should consult the other websites' privacy notices, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

The Website may use reputable third parties to present or serve the advertisements that you may see at its web pages and to conduct research about the advertisements. This privacy notice does not cover any use of information that such third parties may have collected from you or the methods used by the third-parties to collect that information (e.g., cookies, web beacons and clear gifs).

Cookies

A cookie is a small file which is placed on the user’s hard drive during a visit of the Website. This file allows the user to move quickly and easily around our site. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at our site. It is used to identify returning users and to identify subscribers and registrants (a registrant - and subscriber - will have the cookie linked to their e-mail address as a way of identifying them). This means that if you are a registrant or subscriber, you will not have to login each time you visit. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

We also use a cookie to track a user’s sessions. We use this information to find out what site features are most popular so that we can develop Economist.com in the light of our analysis of people’s usage. We also use cookies and the information we collect to show you relevant content and advertising.

You can delete cookies from your hard drive at any time. Bear in mind, though, that if you delete these cookies, any settings such as your stored username and password will have to be reset when you log in again.

Unlike many sites, you will be able to use the Website even if you set your browser not to accept any cookies. However, certain features and content may not be available to you and you will have to log in every time you visit.

We may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to collect anonymous and aggregate advertising metrics, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses. These “web beacons” may be used to deliver cookies that conform to our Cookie Policy.

Security Policy

The Website has appropriate measures in place to ensure that users’ personal details are not misused, accidentally destroyed, lost or altered within the UTChinese Network server environment.

Changes to this Policy

Due to changes in legislation and best practice or enhancements to functionality and content on the Website we may make changes to our Privacy Policy and will reflect those changes in this statement. We may not be able to notify users about changes in this statement so you should check here from time to time.
