What personal information do Accura collect?

We will not keep your personal data longer longer than we need to, how long does depend on several factors which includes why we collected it in the first place and how old the data is.
We collect the following types of information from our customers.
Personal information you provide to us:

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of features or opportunities. The personal information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain products and services, customising the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about new products and Accura events.

Generally, our service may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components. Accura only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the web site or services so that we can improve the website and services.
Our website automatically gathers certain information related to the usage and effectiveness of our online self-service support.

This aggregate data helps us determine how effective our support service is, so we can improve our self-service tools and make them as effective as possible.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from Accura if your computer supports this type of program. Accura may use this confirmation to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us by e-mail at email@example.com
