INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
1. Information Collection.
We collect information from you when you subscribe to emails. We can use your personal information to:
(a) Email Addresses. Several locations on the Site permit you to enter your email address to sign up for AAF Montgomery’s newsletters. Your submission is completely voluntary, so you have a choice whether to participate and disclose information to us.
(b) Cookies and Other Technology. To improve your experience while using the Site, we employ cookies and web beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or “pixel tags”) to collect analytics about the use of the Site.
(ii) Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us determine whether a page on the Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times. For example, any electronic image on the Sites, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon.
(iii) We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any personal information collected by us.
(c) Log Files. As is true of most websites, the Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access the Sites. We may also log your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, internal marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)
(d) Age. We respect children’s privacy. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under age 13. By using the Site, you have represented and warranted that you are either 18 years of age or are using the Site with the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us and request a parent or guardian to assist you.
2. Information Use and Disclosure.
(a) Communications with You. You may submit your email address to sign up for AAF Montgomery’s newsletters. If you submit your email address, we only use it to deliver the information to you. We always allow you to unsubscribe or opt-out of future emails (see the “opt-out” section, below, for more details).
(b) External Use. We want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great selection of programs and products. We do not sell, rent, trade, license, or otherwise disclose your specific personal information or financial information to anyone other than to affiliates under AAF, except that:
(i) We will not sell (or trade or rent) personally identifiable information to other companies as part of our regular course of business, except in the case of our affinity partners.
(ii) We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.
The Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”). We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online. Access to your personal information is restricted.
While we take reasonable precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. The use of the Site is at your own risk, and we encourage you to use security measures to protect your personal information.
Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your personal information; (b) stop sending emails to your email address. All email marketing communications include an “opt-out” link in the footer. Please do not email your credit card number or other sensitive information.
