This Website is operated by AMS Yazilim Teknolojileri, a company organized under the laws of Turkey, , with a registered address at Siraselviler Cad. Taner Palas Apt. No 9/ 5, Istanbul, Turkey, ("AMS LTD", "We", "Us" "Our" or "AMS") is committed to keeping your information secure and managing it in accordance with our legal responsibilities under the applicable privacy and data protection laws.
Although the AMS LTD. website (the "Website") and products and services available or enabled via the Website ("Products and Services") are located primarily in the Republic of Ireland , some of its services, data centres, service providers and servers may be located in other countries.
You do not have to provide your personal information to us, but if you do not provide certain information it may affect the service we are able to provide to you.
Personally identifiable information We Collect
Most of the Products and Services offered to visitors of the Website require you to register for a user account with AMS ("User Account"). When registering for a User Account, AMS will ask you to voluntarily supply AMS with certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. Such information may include your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address and home and business postal addresses. It is completely optional for you to register for a User Account or engage in activities requiring a User Account.
When ordering Products and Services via the Website, you may be asked to provide a credit card number, account and/or billing and shipping information enabling the consummation of the transaction. The foregoing information is collected and processed by online payment services, including but not limited to merchant accounts services, which we may utilize for payment processing, including automatic subscription renewals. In addition, as noted below, minimum information is requested if you choose to subscribe to product updates.
You never have to answer any questions, and you can decline this exchange of information at any time. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the Products and Services. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as optional. If you do not provide the mandatory information with respect to a particular activity or purchase, you will not be able to engage in that activity or make such a purchase. AMS will inform you of the mandatory and/or optional character of the requested and/or required information.
You may be provided an opportunity to subscribe to a periodic newsletter and product updates. This newsletter allows AMS to inform you of new Products and Services, updates, as well as other news relevant to the company. The subscription service requires you to provide your first and last name, your email address, and other information. Optionally, you are asked to provide the name of the company you represent.
Non-Personally identifiable information we collect
When you use the Website, AMS or trusted third parties authorized by AMS may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer (also known as environmental variables) to facilitate your use of the Website and its services. When you browse the Internet, your Internet browser (such as Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer) automatically transmits some information to AMS every time you access content on one of our internet domains. Examples of such information include the URL of the particular Web page you visited, the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer you are using, or the browser version that you are using to access the Website. All of this information may be collected by AMS and used to help improve our offerings to you.
AMS may collect information about the use of the Website, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually.
We use such data to facilitate and track your use of the Website and its services. AMS also uses environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Website. We do not match such information with any of your personally identifiable information.
AMS collects and stores the files you upload, download, or access via the Products and Services offered through the Website. We understand that these files may be confidential or contain sensitive information. Accordingly, AMS does not share or permit third parties to access such files. However, no password-protected system of data storage and retrieval can be made entirely impenetrable. Although AMS uses a number of security technologies and procedures to make sure that the data on the Website is secure, it may be possible for an unauthorized third party to access, view, copy, modify and distribute the data and files you store on the Website or via Products and Services despite AMS 's efforts.

As described above, you will be given an opportunity to create a User Account containing your personal information. A User Account is required for using most Products and Services offered on the Website.
