When you do, ABCoA will do its best to share your email address and related “unsubscribe” instructions with the advertiser to ensure that your email privacy preferences are honored. ABCoA, at times, may use a third-party to send our customers an automatic email communication or offer on our behalf, and when we do, ABCoA will do its best to share with that third-party agent a list of our customers’ email addresses collected from website visitors that have specifically unsubscribed out of ABCoA’s email program. ABCoA may provide access to ABCoA’s databases to third-party affiliates to help facilitate the aggregating of information as noted herein. As mentioned in this Privacy Statement, certain accessed information contained in our databases may be deemed Personally Identifying Information so ABCoA will do its best to ensure that the access granted is to the sections of our database that contain information that is otherwise publicly available on ABCoA’s website.
Modifications to ABCoA’s Privacy Statement

If and when ABCoA recognizes the need to change its Statement, all such changes to this Statement will be made on the website and an update will be made regarding the effective date to reflect the date of the changes.

This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users for one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Data Breach Response Policy
Last updated: October 1, 2023
ABCoA, Inc. and its subsidiaries are focused on the development of high value software products designed to optimize, organize, manage and protect data and systems on a variety of platforms and environments. Technical support and consulting services are also provided in connection with those products.
As providers of software products, ABCoA takes the security and confidentiality of our customers’ and their consumers’ information very seriously. We are committed to maintaining and improving our information security practices and minimizing our exposure to security risks.
Our intentions for publishing this Data Breach Response Policy are to focus attention on data security and potential breaches of that security and to show how our established culture of openness, trust and integrity should help us to respond when potential breaches occur. We are committed to protecting our customers, consumers, employees and partners from illegal or damaging actions by individuals, company’s or rogue organizations, whether or not those actions are intentional.
This Policy describes the procedures and safeguards employed by ABCoA whenever there is a threat of a data breach or other incursion on data collected, stored, processed or managed by either of us (“Breach”). We take this approach for data we hold, manage or process for ourselves and our employees but we also do this on behalf of our customers. This policy also describes the actions that will be taken based on the type and severity of the breach and those necessary to remediate a potential breach.
This Policy applies to all team members of ABCoA (including all employees of any subsidiary or related companies), all “non‐employee” assigned workers performing services directly for or at of our facilities (e.g., consultants, independent contractors, outsource service providers, general services suppliers, vendor funded personnel, and assigned worker/agency temporary workers), and any other third parties doing business with or acting directly or indirectly on behalf of ABCoA (hereinafter collectively referred to as “You”). Compliance with this Policy is mandatory for You and is a condition of Your employment, assignment or engagement with one of us. This Policy is intended to describe the measures ABCoA will take to comply with (among other things) the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology Framework (the “Cybersecurity Framework”) for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.
Reporting a Potential Breach
Any time You suspect that a theft, breach or exposure of Protected Data or Sensitive Data may have occurred, You should immediately report a description of the potential Breach to ABCoA’s Legal Counsel at legal@ABCoA.com with subject: Theft, Breach or Exposure of Protected Data. All reports of potential theft, data breach or exposure will be investigated to confirm if a theft, breach or exposure has occurred. If a theft, breach or exposure has occurred, ABCoA will follow its own requirements for response and remediation of potential breach situations.
Confirmed Breach of Provider’s Protected or Sensitive Data
As soon as a theft, data Breach or exposure containing Protected data or Sensitive data is identified, the process of removing all access to any compromised resource will begin. An internal Breach Response Committee will conduct a comprehensive Breach response. The Committee will enable an internal response team including representatives from:
- Business Management
- Customer Success
- Human Resources
- Information Technology
This internal team will perform data forensics to analyze the Breach or exposure to determine the root cause; the types of data involved; the number of internal/external individuals and/or organizations impacted.
Responding to a Breach
When a response is required, ABCoA, as appropriate, will be responsible for defining a response communication plan in accordance with regulatory requirements of the potentially disclosed data and the requirements of the individual case. The communication plan may include notification to third parties, regulators, law enforcement or any other party and will be determined with the direct advice and guidance of the respective Legal and Compliance Team.
Remediation of a Breach
In parallel with investigative and notification response measures, actions may be taken to introduce the necessary safeguards to remediate any vulnerabilities and concerns described in the investigative forensic report. Remediation measures may include any or all of the following:
- Arresting any additional data loss
- Review and refinement of incident avoidance and data breach policies
- Remove improperly posted information from the web
- Secure all websites
- Assess third party service providers' access privileges
- Develop forensic review plan/review network segment exposure
- Awareness Training
Again, ABCoA takes the security and confidentiality of their customers’ information very seriously. We are committed to maintaining and improving all information security practices and minimizing our exposure to security risks. Compliance with this Policy is mandatory for all ABCoA’s Associates as defined herein. Violations of this Policy or failure to comply with the standards or requirements laid out herein, whether deliberate or not, will be treated as serious misconduct. Technology is continually changing, and ABCoA reserves the right to revise, modify, suspend, rescind, delete from, or add to this Policy from time to time in its sole and absolute discretion.If you have any questions about this Data Breach Response Policy, please contact us by visiting this page on our website: https://ABCoA.com/contact-us/
