Privacy Policy

The following terms are drafted in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), as well as other broader privacy legislation in the United States and abroad.

Who we are

We are Advanced Conservation Management, Inc.

We are also sometimes referred to as ACM.

Our website address is: https://advancedcminc.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

When any user submits information through a contact form on our website, we receive that information directly through email. In addition to the information entered by the user, we collect other information about the submission. This includes time of submission and IP address of user.

Different forms on our site request different types of personal information, including first name, last name, email address, company name and phone number. In all cases, we use this information solely for the purpose of contacting a user at her/ his behest. We never share this information with third parties without written or verbal consent from the user, and we never sell or distribute any information collected through our contact forms.


If you leave a comment or fill out a form on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles and pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use a number of analytics apps to evaluate our website in terms of effectiveness. These apps include Google Analytics and Jetpack by WordPress.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment or fill out a form, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

In the case of contact forms, we use your personal data to contact you and organize your submission based on name, in order to tell your submission apart from those of others.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments or submitted a form, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service provided by Google. The service is called reCAPTCHA. One of reCAPTCHA’s requirements for use is to have a privacy policy, like this one, in place.

When you submit a contact form, we receive your data in an offline environment in our own email accounts. Some of your data is then stored on our server, protected by SSL, as well as on our own devices, including PCs and mobile devices. These devices are protected from breaches by third parties through updated software.

Your contact information

When you enter your contact information through one of our contact forms, we retain that information indefinitely in order to keep a record of your interaction with our company. You can contact us anytime at [email protected] to request a summary of the information we have on file for you, or to request that we expunge said information.
