Our overall policy is extremely simple: If we collect information from you, we use it only for the purposes for which it was collected, and the other limited purposes outlined below.
Types of Information Collected
The ALAS web site collects two types of user information. We collect some non-personally identifiable information automatically and some from our registration forms and online surveys. Non-personally identifiable information might include your IP address, your browser type or operating system, the domain name from which you linked to our site, your zip code, your age, and other general demographic information. We use this non-personally identifiable information to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our web site; and we may share it with our affiliates, partner organizations or with our other business partners on an aggregated basis.
Our web site's registration and contact forms, and merchandise transactions may also request or require users to give us personally identifiable information (like their name, telephone number, home address and e-mail address). We may use the information from our registration form and merchandise purchase forms to contact the user, but users may opt-out of receiving future mailings. We will not sell or disclose your personally identifiable data to any third party unless: (i) we change web site hosts or our host transfers business assets (as further described below); (ii) we first obtain permission from you; (iii) we need to share it with agents or contractors who perform services for us; or (iv) we are required by law to disclose it.
If you provide contact information, staff from ALAS may inquire to clarify your comment or question, or to learn about your organization.
Transfer of Business Assets
As our web site host develops business, it may be acquired, merge with another business, or acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, both personally and non-personally identifiable information will likely be one of the transferred assets.
We may use "cookies" to determine whether you have visited our web site previously and to save and remember any preferences that you set while using our web site. Cookies also allow us to measure activity on our web site and to improve your user experience, for example by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, thus allowing you to visit any member-only parts of the web site without re-registering. Our cookies cannot retrieve any other data from a hard drive or obtain an e-mail address. Although a user has the ability to modify most browsers to either accept all cookies, notify the user when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize certain services if cookies are rejected.
While there is no such thing as "perfect" security on the Internet, we will take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of your personally identifiable information. This web site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, we do not assume any liability for third-party usage of your personal information, whether obtained legally or illegally from our system.
ALAS does not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under the age of 13 and does not intend to solicit information of any kind from children under the age of 13. If we are notified that we have received information of any kind from any child under the age of 13, as soon as we verify the notification, we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our records. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under the age of 13, please do so by e-mailing us at: email@example.com.
This web site gives users the opportunity to change and modify information previously provided information by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
