KG (“AEG”) (collectively “Ambridge” or “we”) have created this Privacy Notice to explain how we collect, use, maintain, protect, disclose and otherwise process personal information in connection with the company’s ambridge-group.com website (the “Website”) and the business contact information we collect.
