Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information means any information which may be used to identify you, such as, your name, phone number, email address or mailing address.
In general, you can browse our web site without giving us any personal information. We use industry standard products to analyze traffice to this web site in order to understand our member’s and visitor’s needs and to continually improve our site for them. These analytical tools collect only anonymous, aggregate statistics. For example, we do not tie a specific visit to a specific IP address.
If you want to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask you to simply provide you email address. In that case, we use you email address only in connection with providing you the newsletter and for no other purpose.
Additional activities on our site require you to be registered – for example, as part of the registration process, we ask you to create an ACEA account where we collect additional personal information. We use that information for several general purposes: to tell you about services if you so request; to fulfill your request; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to verify the accuracy of our records; or to contact you regarding customer satisfaction surveys.
Some activities require additional personal information besides your ACEA account. For example, to fulfill your enrollment request, we may require you to enter credit card information and you have the option to specify an alternate mailing address.
