AEserver does not knowingly collect Personal Information about children under the age of 13. If AEserver becomes aware that it has inadvertently collected Personal Information about children under the age of 13, it will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible, except where AEserver is required by applicable law to keep it. Where AEserver knows a child is above the age of 13, but considered a minor under applicable law, AEserver will obtain parental/guardian consent prior to using that child’s Personal Information.
How does AEserver use and store the information it collects?

AEserver may use Personal Information to create and authenticate your account, to process transactions you request such as software license purchases in order to perform any contract you have entered into with AEserver, to provide you with customer and technical support and to communicate with you about your account and AEserver’ products and services
