Collection of Information
When you browse AACE’s website as a guest, you are anonymous. AACE does not collect personal information about any person that is not provided voluntarily. We track anonymous information, such as which pages were visited and for how long, on our server. We use this information solely to learn more about trends on the website, such as which web pages users visit most and how quickly information is found.
If you apply for membership, register for an event or request any other product or service, AACE collects information from you such as your name, title, company, address, phone, fax and email address. This information is collected only if you give it voluntarily. Information provided to AACE will be used internally in order to process your specific request and will not be sold or shared with outside parties. Your information may be used to send you AACE publications, information relating to upcoming AACE activities or important membership announcements. In addition, AACE makes members’ contact information available to other members through the members-only portion of the website. This information can only be accessed with a legitimate AACE username and password; for this reason, we strongly urge you limit unauthorized access to your AACE username and password. You may edit your contact information at any time through the members-only portion of the website or by calling or emailing AACE Headquarters at +1 434.284.4445 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclosure of Information
AACE may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as bulk mailing or publication printing. We provide those companies only with the information they need to complete to service they have been contracted to perform, and they are prohibited from using the information provided for any other purpose.
AACE may disclose your information if we are required to do so by law or if such disclosure is necessary to: comply with a legal order; defend AACE or its employees, affiliates or partners; or protect the personal safety of AACE employees, affiliates, partners, members or site users.
Credit Card Information
You may choose to provide AACE with credit card information to pay for membership dues, event fees or any other product or service. We will never voluntarily disclose your credit card information to any third-party organization or person who is not employed by AACE to process your payment.
We urge members and all other end users not to send credit card information via e-mail, instant messaging or social media, because these methods are not secure and could cause the data to be compromised.
AACE has taken measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of information on this website. We have the technology in place to provide a secure server for transmission of data to and from our website. All information (including your address and credit card information) is encrypted when sent through our secure server so that no other party can access it.
