This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, share and protect personal data (“Personal Information”) we receive from users.

 

AFPA is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the AFPA Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the AFPA website, you consent to the data practices described in this Statement.

 

Collection of Your Personal Information

 

AFPA collects Personal Information when registering for any account. This might include your email address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. AFPA may also collect anonymous demographic information that is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, preferences, interests, and favorites.

 

We may also collect any information you submit through a form, when joining a newsletter, when purchasing a product, or when contacting us.

 

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by AFPA. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referral website addresses.

 

Children

 

AFPA does not knowingly collect Personal Information from any child under the age of 13. If you believe AFPA has collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately.

 

Use of Your Personal Information

  • AFPA uses your Personal Information to deliver the services you have requested. AFPA also uses your Personal Information to inform you of discount offers, and other products or services available.
  • AFPA uses Personal Information to maintain the quality of the services, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the AFPA website.
  • AFPA does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties.
  • AFPA keeps track of the web pages our customers visit within the AFPA website to determine what AFPA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within AFPA to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject matter.
  • AFPA may use your Personal Information to contact you or provide customer, technical, or other support.
  • AFPA will only disclose your Personal Information, and may do so without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AFPA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AFPA; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of AFPA products or property, or to protect the public.

Security of Your Personal Information

 

Your security is important to AFPA. AFPA uses commercially reasonable methods to secure your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. AFPA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When Personal Information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to us.

 

Do-Not-Track Policy and Procedures

 

AFPA does not currently respond to “do not track” browser headers or specific “do not track” requests.  You do have the ability to limit tracking through these third-party programs and by taking the actions listed below.  The use of online tracking mechanisms by third-parties is governed by those third-parties’ own privacy policies, and not the terms included hereunder. If you prefer to prevent third-parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer, you may adjust the settings of your own web browser to block the placement of cookies. You may remove yourself from the targeted advertising of companies by contacting the Network Advertising Initiative, or of companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance program by contacting them directly.

 

International Privacy Practices

 

AFPA is primarily operated and managed on servers located and operated within the United States. In order to provide Services to you, AFPA may send and store your Personal Information outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to the United States. Accordingly, if you reside or are located outside of the United States, your Personal Information may be transferred outside of the country where you reside or are located, including countries that may not or do not provide the same level of protection for your Personal Information. AFPA is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of Personal Information when it is transferred. If you reside or are located within the European Economic Area and such transfers occur, AFPA takes appropriate steps to provide the same level of protection for the processing carried out in any such countries as you would have within the European Economic Area to the extent feasible under applicable law. By using and accessing our Services, users who reside or are located in countries outside of the United States agree and consent to the transfer to and processing of Personal Information on servers located outside of the country where they reside, and that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of their residence or location.
