The Personally Identifiable Information We Collect

Additionally, contact information may be collected during any correspondence relating to customer support, as well as in connection with the Service offered on the Site.

Armor may collect such information as contact name, business name and type, address, phone number, email address and billing information including credit card number and expiration date, as well as other information. We will only use your name, address and billing information/credit card information to process your order. The addresses are used for customer support, required notifications, product and statement updates and marketing releases.

All users may at any time opt-out of our marketing by clicking the Unsubscribe link located at the bottom of all marketing and customer notices or by submitting a General Inquiry at https://www.armor.com/contact-us.
However, even where a customer has opted out of receiving any marketing data, in order to fulfill our service obligations, Armor will continue to send emails regarding customers’ account administration or interruptions to the Services for system maintenance.
Information will only be made publicly available where mandated by governing agencies, in response to subpoenas, similar legal process or court orders, 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, or as disclosed in accordance with the terms and conditions of our agreements with customers.
