Our Commitment

Acuity Worldwide respects your concern about privacy.  The Acuity Worldwide Privacy Policy explains how we protect your personal information, and describes the choices you have concerning our use of such information.  Please read this Policy carefully.  We may need to change this Policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our Website.  We will post changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone.  Please refer to this policy regularly.

Online Information Gathering

Information collected online is often defined as being either personally identifiable or anonymous:

Personally Identifiable Information

Personally identifiable information lets us know the specifics of who you are, such as your name, e-mail address or postal address.  Acuity Worldwide uses the personally identifiable information we collect about you to process requests to provide you with additional information.  The choice of how much of your personally identifiable information is disclosed to Acuity Worldwide is left completely up to you.

The only way we know something about you is when you voluntarily disclose your information such as your address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, demographic and other information when you communicate on the Website by sending us an e-mail, or fill in an online form.

When visiting any Internet site, your unique address, called an "IP address," is recorded.  The amount of information about users made available from their IP addresses varies greatly, for instance depending on how they are connected to the Internet.  Acuity Worldwide does not release any information about the collection of this address to any third parties.  Acuity Worldwide archives the logging of IP addresses for security reasons.

Anonymous Information

Anonymous information cannot be tied back to a specific individual.  Acuity Worldwide collects and archives basic logging for website statistics.  These log files show the daily number of visitors to our Website and its subdirectories, the daily requests we receive for particular files, what server locations those requests come from, including from which countries, as well as the domain names of the servers or browsers accessing the Website.  These aggregated statistics are primarily used internally to provide better service to the public, but may also be provided to others.


Acuity Worldwide does not sell, rent, lend or give personally identifiable information collected from you on the Website to marketers.  One exception is that, although unlikely, Acuity Worldwide may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information.  In these cases, we will provide this information as and to the extent we have determined that the disclosure of any such information is appropriate.

Use of Cookies

To enable specialized features that may become available on the Website, our server may assign your browser a unique identification number stored in a file on your computer (a "cookie").  Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to find out the identity of any user.  This unique identification number will automatically identify your browser to our computers whenever you interact on our Website.

Opt-out or Correct/Update

If you wish to remove your information from our database or do not want to receive future communications, or wish to change or modify information previously provided, please contact us at

Your Consent

By using our Website, you consent to the collection and use of information by Acuity Worldwide as discussed above.


Other organizations linked to this Website may collect information about you when you access their websites.  We cannot control this collection of information.  You should contact these organizations directly if you have any questions or concerns about their use of the information they collect.  These third party websites may have their own privacy policies or no policy at all.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party websites before providing any of them with your personal information.
