If due to such changes, you decide that you want to delete any portion of your personal information from our database, please notify AWIB at firstname.lastname@example.org.

AWIB collects and retains two types of information about Site visitors: (i) personal information that individual visitors provide when interacting on the Site, or voluntarily at certain other points (such as via forms or emails); and (ii) tracking data, which is automatically collected from every Site visitor, (collectively, “Information”).

The Information that we gather during the registration process may include your name, title, company or business organization, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information or other elements of personal information.
You may decline to provide any personal information, but please realize that you may thereby be unable to register as a member of AWIB or to participate in activities or opportunities offered by AWIB.
In addition, if you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence, including any Information contained therein.
The tracking data we record includes, without limitation, information regarding the number and frequency of users to the Site, the websites that users access before and after they visit the Site, the internet software used by our users to access the Site, and our users’ IP addresses and internet service providers.
How We Use Your Information. The Information that we collect and that you provide to us is used for our business purposes and the purpose for which you provided it, including, without limitation, to respond to your requests or correspondence. AWIB may also use the Information to contact you about the Site or to request your input regarding ways in which we might improve the Site. We may also use your Information to inform you about AWIB’s activities, products, services, events and fundraising efforts in which AWIB hopes you may be interested. The Information may also be analyzed so that we can serve you in the best manner possible through enhanced features and functions on the Site.
AWIB may use certain tracking data such as the type of browser you use, the files you request and the URL and geographic location from which you request information. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including but without limitation, to compile statistical, demographic or aggregated information about visitors to the site generally, or for load balancing metrics and to create reports on user demographics and Site traffic patterns. The reports that are generated from tracking data are used for a variety of purposes, including, for example, to improve the Site and our services.
Children Under the Age of 18. The Site is not intended for anyone under the age of 18. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18 please do not use this Site.
Third Parties. We employ third-party agents and service providers to operate the Site and to perform functions on our behalf. These third-parties have access to the Information needed to perform their functions. We seek to limit such third-parties to using the information that is shared with them solely for the purpose of providing such services. In addition, we may disclose Information to certain third-parties if you have requested or authorized the disclosure of such Information. However, we cannot be responsible for such third-parties’ use of Information not in compliance with this Policy.

How Your Information Is Protected. We take reasonable precautions to protect your Information from loss, misuse or alteration. We maintain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards for your Information. You should recognize, however, that there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the internet and we cannot guarantee the security of your Information. In addition, because internet communication is unsecure, it is also possible that the information you supply to us or your access of any information via the Site will be intercepted during transmission. We cannot be liable for any breach of our systems or interception of our transmission and we hereby fully disclaim, to the fullest extent provided under law, any liability associated with any claim relating to a breach of security, data or information.
Other Communications. From time to time, we may email Site users information regarding important developments affecting AWIB. We may also email Site users on occasion regarding the Site. Such emails may be sent to Site users even if they have not requested to receive any communication from us.
Links to Third-Party Sites. The Site may contain links to websites owned and operated by other parties. We are not responsible for and have no control over the privacy policies of those sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those sites prior to providing them with any information.
Compliance With Laws. We reserve the right to disclose any Information to comply with any law, regulation, decree, judgment, order, subpoena or any other governmental order (“Order”) without any obligation to contest or verify the accuracy of such Order.
Applicable Law. This Policy will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to any principles of conflicts of law.
