The information we collect

AR UK Ltd may collect the following personal information about you:

When you apply for a job through our website, we will ask that you submit a resume and cover letter so that we can evaluate your skillset to determine if you are qualified for the position to which you applied. We will also use your information to contact you if we decide to move forward with your candidacy.

Information we collect automatically. Whenever you access or use our website, we may automatically receive and record information from your computer or mobile device, which may include: the device you use to access or use our website, your IP address, the type of browser or application you are using to access our website, the identity of the page or feature you are requesting, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform types, preferences you submit and preferences that are generated based on the data you submit, and number of clicks. We also collect information through the use of cookies, web beacons, and other technology.

How we use your information

We may use your personal information:

  • To provide our products and services
  • For the specific purpose for which that information was collected
  • To address your customer service or technical support questions
  • To alert you of new products or services
  • To improve our products and services
  • To respond to legal proceedings and other legal requirements
  • For any other purpose with your consent

We may use and share non-personal, de-identified information that can’t be used to identify you for any lawful business purpose without any obligation or accounting to you. When we do so, we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the non-identifiable data is not personally identifiable and cannot later be used to identify you.

Information sharing and disclosure

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways described in this privacy policy and only for legitimate business purposes. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and we may need to share your personal information with them to provide services to you, such as processing your payment information, shipping products to you, and providing customer service. Unless we tell you differently, they do not have any right to use your personal information beyond what is necessary to assist us. We may potentially be liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if a third party processes personal information in a way inconsistent with those Principles, unless we prove we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

We may disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, you will be notified via email and/or prominent notice on our Web site of any such change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information. We may also disclose your personal information to any other third party with your prior consent.

Marketing communications

You may opt-in to our promotional and marketing communication lists. When you opt-in to a promotional or marketing communication list, you give us your consent to send you those specific communications. You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. You can opt-out of promotional and marketing communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional email that we send to you, or by emailing us at aruksales@arworld.us. We may continue to send you administrative emails; for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Notice, even if you indicate that you no longer wish to receive promotional email from us.

Retention and modification of your personal information

Correcting, Updating, Accessing, or Removing Personal Information. You can correct, update, or remove your personal information if it changes or if you no longer want to receive information from us beyond information related to our products or services. This can be done by emailing a request to aruksales@arworld.us. You may also request access to your personal information that we collect by sending a request to aruksales@arworld.us. We may not be able to completely remove your personal information from our systems in certain circumstances. For example, we may retain your personal information for legitimate business purposes, if it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, if required by law, or as retained in our data backup systems or cached or archived pages. All of your personal information that we keep will continue to be subject to the terms of this privacy policy to which you have previously agreed and we will delete your personal information from our backup systems in accordance with our data retention policies.
