This privacy policy will advise you about how we protect your personally identifiable information, and about what choices you have concerning our use of such information. Please read this policy carefully. We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on this Site. We will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone. Please refer back to this policy regularly.

Scope of Privacy Policy

This policy applies to your use of the www.amca.org website, which is operated by or on behalf of AMCA (collectively, the "Site"). This policy does not apply to your use of other websites to which this Site may link. This policy covers only information collected on this Site and does not cover any information collected offline by us.

Personally Identifiable Information

We may request personally identifiable information from you (such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card number, e-mail address, and/or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of you) in connection with your use of, or participation in, online registration for AMCA’s mailing list, making purchases from the AMCA Site store, email address provided through general correspondence with AMCA, and requests for additional information (including via email to us), and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available on this Site. In all of these cases, we will collect personally identifiable information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we will never intentionally disclose any personally identifiable information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission.

If you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we may use it to conduct any of these activities. We may also use cookie technology and Web beacons (discussed in detail below) to improve your experience of these activities, including to remember your preferences, customize the content or authenticate your access to your personal information. In addition, in the event your personally identifiable information is requested as part of our outreach efforts, such personally identifiable information may be added to your profile.

We may also contact you to confirm registration information, if applicable, and about your account status, and regarding changes to this Site's Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy.

If you give us your permission, we may also use personally identifiable information for informational purposes. On occasion, for example, we may send you emails to update you regarding our work. For us to obtain your permission to send you this information, we will give you an opportunity to "opt-in" at the time our request for your personal information is made. If you do "opt-in," you may choose to "opt-out" at any time, even after you have provided personal information, by following the procedures set forth below at the end of this Privacy Policy. Please note, however, that under certain circumstances, if you initially do not choose to "opt-in," or if you later "opt-out," you may not be eligible for certain outreach efforts from us for which a name, e-mail address, telephone number or other personally identifiable information is needed.

We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of this Site, or a physical or property threat to you or others. We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a transfer of either AMCA’s assets to another entity or other fundamental corporate change.

Further, the information you enter when making a purchase on the AMCA Site store will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose or carrying out the transactions.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your information and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your registration, if applicable, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your registration or password.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of:

"Cookie" technology: A "cookie" is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system.

"IP address tracking": An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from this Site, our servers log your IP address.

"Web beacons": A Web beacon, or "clear gif", is a small graphic image on a webpage or web-based document that a web site can use to determine information about a user.

Non-personally identifiable information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to this Site - such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. Our systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you utilize on this Site and about the links you may select from within this Site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.

We use such information to administer the Site and, in the aggregate, to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on this Site. This way we know which areas of this Site are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve this Site.

We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, personal navigational or other personal information.

Further, we currently contract with a third party web analytics provider to help manage and optimize this Site. We use this service to help us research how visitors use this Site. To do this, we use Web beacons and cookie technology on this Site. The type of information we collect includes the number of hits a web page receives and the type of browser used. By supplementing our records, this information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors. Although this third-party provider logs the information coming from this Site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.

Links To Other Sites

Users will find content on this Site that link to the sites of organizations who have resources for the purposes of education and information in connection with AMCA. We do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.

Security Policy

Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken careful measures to secure both your information and our physical premises. We exercise great care in providing safe transmission of your information from your PC to our servers (unless sent by a means outside of our control, such as e-mail).

If you would like to review any personal information we have retained about you in our database, please send us an e-mail request for this information at [email protected]. To help us address your request, please specify which information you wish to review. Once you have reviewed this information, at your request we will correct personal information about you that you state is erroneous. To request such a correction, please send an e-mail to [email protected]. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers although we will make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request.


If at any time you would like to stop receiving AMCA information or opt-out of a feature, you may go back to this Site and change your options. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers although we will make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request.

Any electronic updates or email messages sent in connection with AMCA will provide recipients with the opportunity to opt out of receiving future automated communications from us.
