The America Academy of Cariology is committed to providing you with outstanding service. Because we respect your right to privacy, we have developed this Privacy Statement to inform you about our privacy practices for the entire aacariology.org web site and the services that are provided via this web site. This privacy policy deals with personally identifiable information that may be collected by this site. This policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by the Academy, nor does it apply to persons that are not employees or agents of the Academy, or that are not under the Academy’s control.

1. Collection of data

Registration for an account on this site requires a valid e-mail address that has not been chosen already, your full name, business address and business phone number. You are not required to provide any other information if you do not want to. Please be aware that the e-mail address that you provide and any other information you enter may render you personally identifiable, and may possibly be displayed on this web site intentionally (depending on choices you make during the registration process, or depending on the way in which the site is configured) or unintentionally (subsequent to an act of intrusion by a third party). As on many web sites, the Academy may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address and cookie information.

2. Use of data

Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this site and only used by AAC staff as necessary. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless (i) provided for otherwise in this Privacy Policy; (ii) your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data; (iii) a service provided on our site requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service provider; (iv) pursuant to legal action or law enforcement; or (v) it is found that your use of this site violates the Academy’s policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by the Academy to protect the Academy’s legal rights and/or property. In the event you choose to use links displayed on this web site to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies published on those sites.

3. Cookies

The servers on which information is stored are kept in a security environment protected electronically from access from unauthorized individuals. Like many web sites, this web site sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience — to remember your personal settings, for example. A “cookie” is a piece of information that our web site sends to your browser, which then stores this information on your system. If a cookie is used, our web site will be able to “remember” information about you and your preferences either until you exit your current browser window (if the cookie is temporary) or until you disable or delete the cookie. Many users prefer to use cookies in order to help them navigate a web site as seamlessly as possible. You should be aware that cookies contain no more information than you volunteer, and cookies alone are not able to access your hard drive and return to the sender personal or other information from your computer, if you prefer you can edit your browser options to block them in the future.

4. Editing or deleting your account information

You are provided with the ability to edit the information stored in your user account during registration or after you become a member. You can request that your user account be deleted; to do so, please contact the web site administrator. Content or other data that you may have provided, and that is not stored within your user account, such as links, payments or postings, may continue to remain on the site at the Academy’s discretion, even after your user account is deleted.

5. Account Information

Our site’s registration forms require users to give us contact information (such as name and e-mail address), method of payment and demographic information. We use customer contact information from the registration forms to send the user information about our Academy. The customer’s contact information is also used by the Academy to contact the visitor when necessary. Information regarding method of payment is collected for member enrollment, registration and to process orders for products and services. AAC does not disclose credit card account information provided by its members and customers. Members submit their payment through PayPal services (see Pay Pal privacy policy at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full ).
If a material change is made to this Privacy Statement and/or the way we use our customers’ personally identifiable information then we will post prominent notice of the nature of such change on the first page of this Privacy Statement and also on our home page.
