do with it.

help you connect with people or to make sharing with others
As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully. We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible.
Our customers have the right to access, correct and delete personal data relating to them, and to object to the processing of such data, by addressing a written request, at any time. Allied Building Stores makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, Allied Building Stores does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Site users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may include links to other web sites or other internet sources. As the Allied Building Stores cannot control these web sites and external sources, the Allied Building Stores cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these web sites and external sources, and may not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services or any other material available on or from these web sites or external sources.
You can view or edit your personal data online for many of our services. How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from our web site by email or SMS. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do through the ABS website.
ABS collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
Our web site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or phone number.
We will never share your data with any other company.
