II. Information Collected
Information You Provide Directly to Asgardia
If you are interested in obtaining information, products, or services from Asgardia, or in participating in certain activities on the Services, you may need to provide us with information about yourself. For example:
If you order a product from us, we ask for your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, and your credit card number.
If you are ordering a product as a gift for another person, we will ask you for that person’s name, postal address, and phone number in order to enable us to deliver the gift to the recipient.
If you participate in an activity such as a survey or sweepstakes, we may also ask you to provide other types of information such as gender and personal interests, which we may associate with personally identifiable information that we have obtained about you.
In addition, we may combine personally identifiable information that you have provided to us with other information that is publicly available or that we receive from other sources.
Information We Collect Automatically
In addition to information you choose to provide to us, we also use standard Internet technologies to collect automatically certain additional information. For example:
IP Address or Device Identifier. When you use our Services, we collect your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, which identifies the computer or service provider that you use to access the Services, or your mobile device identifier, if you connect through a mobile device. We may use these identifiers to collect information regarding the frequency with which specific visitors use various parts of our Services. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information that we have collected to make our Services and our communications to you more targeted to your interests.
Web beacons and other technologies. The Services use other tracking tools, including web beacons. Web beacons are images on the Services (or in emails that we send to you) that help us determine what parts of the Services you have visited, whether you have opened an email that we have sent to you, or otherwise to measure the effectiveness of the Services. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information directly to us or to a service provider authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. The information we collect automatically may be combined with information that is personally identifiable so that we can make our Services and communications more interesting to you.
Third-Party Online Advertising
Third parties that currently serve ads on our Services, and thereby may collect information about your online activities to deliver tailored ads, include, but are not limited to. These companies may offer you a way to choose not to have your information used for advertising purposes. These and other third-party companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”), which offers a single location to opt out of receiving tailored ads from member companies. To opt out or to obtain information about the technologies member companies use or their own privacy policies, please visit the NAI consumer opt out page. Also, through the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), several media and marketing associations have developed an industry self-regulatory program to give consumers a better understanding of and greater control over ads that are customized based on their online behavior across different websites. To make choices about interest-based ads from participating third parties, please visit the DAA consumer opt out page. (www.aboutads.info/choices/)

IV. Information Sharing and Disclosure

with corporate affiliates of Asgardia Society and AIRC GmbH (“Affiliates”) and entities that are authorized to use the Asgardia name to brand their products or services. With identified entities whose products or services you specifically use or request to receive while you use the Services;
with other selected third parties so that they may send you promotional materials about goods and services that they offer, but you have the opportunity to opt out of our sharing personally identifiable information about you as described below in the section entitled “Your Choices,” and we will not share your email address with third parties for promotional purposes unless you specifically agree to such sharing;
V. Your Choices
We understand the importance of protecting our customers’ privacy, and we therefore provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of having your personally identifiable information used or disclosed for certain purposes. (Note: Our Services currently do not recognize the “do-not-track signals” that some browsers may employ.)
You can opt out of receiving promotional communications from Asgardia and our Affiliates and our licensees, or request that we not share personally identifiable information about you with third parties for the third parties’ marketing purposes, by contacting us at:

VII. Information Security
The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us, and we take a number of steps to safeguard any personally identifiable information or credit card information that you provide to us. We use data encryption technology to help protect against loss, misuse, or alteration of your credit card information. Secure Socket Layers (SSLs) encrypt the credit card information sent between your computer and our database. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and therefore we cannot warrant or guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.
VIII. Personally Identifiable Information Contained in User Content
Some parts of our Services may allow users to post or transmit messages, comments, screen names, computer files, and other materials. If you choose to make personally identifiable information public through these services, Asgardia will consider that information public and will not limit its disclosure in the manner described here.
IX. Visiting Our Services From Outside of Austria
Asgardia is based in Wien, in Austria. If you are visiting our Services from outside of Austria, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, processed, and stored to Austria and other countries around the world. The data protection and other laws of Austria and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. Please be assured that we seek to take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using our services or providing us with any information through this website, you consent to the transfer, processing, and storage of your information in Austria and other countries around the world.
X. Children’s Privacy
Other than certain sites that are intended for visits from children under the age of 13, our Services are general audience services, and we do not knowingly collect information about children under 13 years old through them. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 make known to us his or her personally identifiable information, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personally identifiable information. If we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from a child under 13 other than in a manner authorized by law, we will delete that information from our database.
