Website Privacy Policy

AABGU has created this Privacy Policy to explain why we collect particular information and how we will protect your personal privacy within our website. AABGU reserves the right at any time and without notice to change this Privacy Policy simply by posting such changes on our site. Any such change will be effective immediately upon posting.

Because we want to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, this Privacy Policy notifies you of:

  1. What identifiable information is collected through the site;
  2. Who collects such information;
  3. How such information is used;
  4. With whom your information may be shared;
  5. What choices you have regarding collection, use and distribution of your information;

What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that includes name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML or text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.

Internet Protocol Address:
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users’ movements, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Use of “Cookies”:
Our site may use cookies to enhance your experience while using our site. Cookies are pieces of information that some websites transfer to the computer that is browsing that website and are used for record keeping purposes at many websites. Use of cookies makes web surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, your personal preferences regarding your use of the particular website and to make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard.

Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function properly when you view them.

Security:
All information provided to AABGU is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of AABGU. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Tell-A-Friend:
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and e-mail address. AABGU will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the site. AABGU stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.
