Automatically Collected Information and Anonymous Information

Each time you visit the Site, we collect some information to improve the overall quality of your online experience.

Aggregated Data. We collect aggregate queries for internal reporting and also count, track, and aggregate each visitor’s activity into our analysis of general traffic flow at the Site. To these ends, we may merge information about you into aggregated group data. In some cases, we may remove personal identifiers from Collected Information and maintain them in aggregate form, which may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Such anonymous, group data may be shared on an aggregated basis with our affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors; if we do so, we will not disclose your individual identity.

Web Server Log Data and IP Addresses. Log data that we collect may include information such as browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, your browsing pattern on the Site and/or click stream, the time spent on those pages, other statistics, and your IP address. An IP address is a number that automatically identifies the computer or device you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet service provider. We may use IP addresses to conduct website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Site, although we will not combine traffic data with user accounts.
Cookies and Usage Reports. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to a user’s computer for purposes of storing information about a user’s preferences. Many websites use cookies as a standard practice to provide useful features when a user visits the website, and most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. A session cookie is one that exists for the period that your browser is open. A persistent cookie is one that is saved on your device/computer even after the browser is closed. Like many websites, we may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s computer.

By placing Cookies on your device, the Company’s and its third-party service providers’ servers passively gather information about all visitors’ use of the Site for several reasons, including, but not limited to: (i) statistics collection and analysis; (ii) Site optimization, analytics (as described below); (iii) market research; (iv) and maintenance of user login information. The information that we and our third-party service providers track with cookies includes, but is not limited to: (i) the type of browser (such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) and Internet-connected devices being used to access the Site; (ii) your IP address; (iii) your home domain or Internet service provider; (iv) your referrer URL (which is the URL for the Site that you were viewing prior to visiting the Site); (v) how you were directed to the Site; (vi) which specific pages you access on the Site; (vii) how long you view each page; (viii) the time and date you access the Site; and (ix) the total number of visitors to the Site and any portions thereof.

We use cookies to improve your online experience when visiting the Site. For example, cookies may be used to prevent you from receiving multiple requests to participate in the same survey. Information collected via the use of cookies may be used for marketing and/or research purposes and may be shared by us with our affiliates and unaffiliated parties. Further, we, and/or our third-party service providers, may use the information collected from cookies or similar files on your computer for security purposes (such as authentication) to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience while visiting the Site. This data helps us and our third-party service providers improve our respective product and services. We may also where permitted by law collect information about you from other sources through the use of cookies.

Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent you from taking full advantage of the Site (or some portion thereof) and its capabilities, or cause some features of the Site to function improperly or more slowly.

Google Analytics and Web Beacons

Our Sites may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, in order to better understand your use of our Site and how we can improve your experience. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit a Site, what pages you visit when you do so, and what other websites you used prior to coming to such Site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Company Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of the Company Site, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected on the Company Site to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. To more fully understand how Google may use the data it collects on the Company Site, please review “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps,” (located here or any successor URL).

Some of the areas of the Site may contain electronic images known as web beacons that allow the Company, and its third-party providers or affiliates, to count and track users who have visited certain portions of the Site, and to be used in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about website usage. A web beacon is an electronic image (also referred to as an “action tag,” “single-pixel,” or “clear GIF”) that is commonly used to track the traffic patterns of users from one web page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow and to otherwise analyze the effectiveness of the website. Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies.
Web beacons collect only limited information and do not collect any of your personal information. Specifically, the Company plans to use a type of web beacon known as a “retargeting pixel,” which will allow users to receive targeted advertising from the Company via certain social media websites, including Facebook.com.

How Do We Use the Information That We Collect?

We, and our third-party services providers, collect and use the Collected Information only (i) to operate the Site and to deliver our services, including to provide certain services and improve the user experience, address Site integrity or security issues; (ii) to conduct research and analysis to maintain, protect, develop, and improve the Site; (iii) to sell certain merchandise; (iv) to provide you with requested information; and (v) for our everyday business purposes.

If you provide your email address, we may send you administrative and promotional emails regarding the Company or any third-party entity or individual affiliated with individual members of the Company, newsletters or information, or communicate with you for any other legitimate and lawful business purposes. Where required in the relevant jurisdiction, we will obtain your consent before sending you promotional emails. If you wish to opt out of information, newsletters or other promotional messages from us, please click the link at the bottom of any such email you receive from us and follow the instructions, or alternatively, you may contact us at unsubscribe@aaf.com with the word “UNSUBSCRIBE” or “REMOVE” in the subject line. Your email address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process.

Additionally, we may retain and use certain Collected Information to facilitate and otherwise address certain inquiries or requests regarding our services or the Site, or respond to your questions or requests for information about or from the Company. We may also use Collected Information as necessary to ensure compliance with any Company policies and any applicable law, regulation or order.

With Whom Do We Share Information That We Collect?

We share information about your Site experiences with our affiliates for our affiliates’ everyday business and marketing purposes. We will not sell, rent, license, or trade your information with nonaffiliate third parties for their own direct marketing use unless we receive your express consent to do so. Unless you give us permission to do so, we will not share your information with third parties other than as specified in this Privacy Policy.
In addition to the uses mentioned or described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we may catalog and add Collected Information to our database. The Company may use and disclose certain aggregated, anonymized information, such as Site usage data, to our trusted business partners. Such information may also be shared with other users or the general public for advertising, informational, or comparison purposes.

Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting in Our Operations. We may share Collected Information under confidentiality agreements and any legally required data-processing agreements with other companies that work with, or on behalf of, us to provide products and services, such as those that are providing marketing solutions, providing payment processing services, providing cloud-hosting services, analyzing data and usage of the Site, or providing support and maintenance services for the Site, as well as legal, regulatory, audit and other professional advisors. These companies may use your PII to assist us in our operations or for our legitimate business interests. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
Disclosures under Special Circumstances. We may also disclose Collected Information if we become subject to a subpoena, court order, search warrant, legal process, or governmental regulation or inquiry, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose information. We may also use and disclose Collected Information to establish or exercise our legal rights, to enforce any of our terms of service, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person. We expressly reserve the right to cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting users who violate our rules or engage in behavior that is illegal or harmful to other users.
Other Parties with Your Consent or at Your Direction. In addition to the disclosures described in this Privacy Policy, we may share Collected Information about you with third parties when you consent to or request such sharing.

Business Transfers. As the Company grows and develops its business, it is possible that its corporate structure or organization might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that it or portions of its business might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, customer information general is, and should be expected to be, one of the transferred business assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, your information may be considered a company asset that may be sold or transferred to third parties.

We may share Collected Information about you with another business entity in connection with the sale, assignment, merger or other transfer of all or a portion of our business to such business entity. We will require any such successor business entity to honor the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Please note, however, that while we have endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Site or via email cannot be guaranteed. You agree to immediately notify us of any breach of Site’s security, this Privacy Policy, or any of our terms of service of which you become aware.

We are not responsible for, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to, the privacy practices of those sites or of any companies that we do not own or control. We cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of any such sites or pages not under our control, and we do not endorse any of these sites or pages, the services or products described or offered on such sites or pages, or any of the content contained on those sites or pages. We encourage you to seek out and read the privacy policy of each site that you visit. In addition, should you happen to initiate a transaction on a site that our Site links to, even if you reached that site through the Site, the information that you submit to complete that transaction becomes subject to the privacy practices of the operator of that linked site.

Your use of these features is fully at your own risk.

Social Media Platforms

Any Submission that you submit to any of our pages contained on a social media platform or on the Site by email, posting, messaging, uploading, downloading, or otherwise is done at your own risk and without any expectation of privacy.

Under Age 13. We do not intentionally or knowingly collect information about children under 13 years of age. Any person who provides information to us via the Site represents that he or she is 13 years of age or older. The Site does not knowingly solicit or collect information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parent consent. If you are under the age of 13, you must ask your parent or guardian to assist you in using the Site. For children under the age of 13 to participate in a trip or activity offered through the Site, such child’s parent or guardian must provide the information necessary for that child to participate in such trip or activity.

If we learn that a child under the age of 13 (or such legally required higher age) has submitted information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law).

Minors under 18 years of age may have the information that they have provided to us through the Site deleted by contacting us at privacy@aaf.com and requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all of our systems and backup systems.

Visiting the Site from Outside the United States

We and our servers are located in the United States and are subject to the applicable laws of the United States (where data-privacy laws are less stringent than in the European Union and some other jurisdictions). If you are visiting the Site, or any part thereof, from outside of the United States of America, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated. By using any portion of the Site, you understand and consent to such transfer, use and disclosure of your information to our facilities in the United States and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy and subject to such applicable laws

California Residents’ Privacy Rights

Please allow 30 days for a response.

Do Not Track Requests

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates, although web browsers incorporate and activate this functionality in different ways, and it is not always clear whether users intend these signals to be transmitted. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading internet standards setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals.
