Type of Information Collected
When you visit our Web Site, we do not collect any personally identifiable information without your consent. We may collect and store information from you that you voluntarily choose to give us or enter on our Web Site, including, but not limited to, “personally identifiable information” such as your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. Our primary purpose in collecting and processing your personally identifiable information is to provide you with the services you request or to personalize our service.
Security & Use of Information
We are dedicated to the security of your personally identifiable information and we take commercially reasonable precautions to maintain that protection. If you need to provide personal information to access features or services, we will clearly disclose how the information will be used.
We do not sell, trade or rent your personally identifiable information to others. However, we may share your personally identifiable information with the member companies of the AF.
In addition, since we conduct research on users’ demographics, interests and behaviors based upon information provided to us during use of our Web Sites, we may combine your information with information collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Aggregated data does not include personally identifiable information. We use this demographic information, such as the percentage of male or female visitors, or the percentage of visitors within certain age brackets, to improve the content of our site. We also may share this anonymous, aggregated information, which does not identify particular individuals or associate particular individuals with illnesses or conditions, with partners or other third parties.
The AF also uses physical and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard your personally identifiable information, however we cannot guarantee that it is completely secure from people who might attempt to evade security measures or intercept transmissions over the Internet.
Our Retention of Your Personally Identifiable Data
Once you have provided personally identifiable information to the AF we will store and maintain the information you have volunteered for so long as you have not directed us otherwise, or for so long as we are required by law. Our retention of your data allows us to continue providing you with highly personalized services without interruption.
The AF believes that choice is one of the most important privacy principles. If, after you have elected to receive the particular email distributions, you decide you would like to be removed from the distribution list, you can reply to the message and ask to unsubscribe from the email list for that particular service or distribution.
A “clickstream” or “clickstream data” reflect the specific web pages visited by an individual user, and, importantly, the manner or traffic pattern by which a user moves from one web page to another. We track such information only within our Web Site; we specifically do not track any clickstream activity outside of the AF Web pages. We track and use this information to understand how our users’ habits are similar to or different from one another and specifically to personalize the content, banner ads and promotions that you and other users will see on our Web Site. Clickstream data does not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information about the user.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) whenever you log onto the Internet. Like other Internet sites, the AF may use IP addresses to collect aggregate and anonymous information about the number of visitors and site usage. To guarantee your privacy, your IP address is not linked with personal information about you. The AF does reserve the right, however, to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten our Site, service or customers.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time, we may ask for personally identifiable information when you complete a survey or enter a contest. In these instances, we will clearly describe the purpose for collecting such information, as well as intended uses.
