REGISTRATION AND PERSONAL INFORMATION

In general, when you visit our website, you do not have to disclose any personal information. Personal information, as used herein, means any information that identifies an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a business or other physical address and an email address or other work contact information. Before we ask you for personal

information, we will explain how this information will be used and with whom we will share it. Our site requires registration to post/edit personal information, although typically all that is requested is your name, title, an email address, and phone number. There may be occasions where we will ask for additional information. We do this to be able to better understand your needs and provide you with services that we believe may be valuable to you. We give you the opportunity to elect not to receive information from us regarding upcoming events and other news. If you choose not to provide personal information that we request, then we may not be able to provide certain services or information to you. We also collect information from you when you contact us through our Contact page. We will collect your name and email address to follow up on your requests.

If AVCC becomes involved in an assignment, merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all its assets, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. We may share certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information with third parties, such as the number of users who visited a certain part of our site or how many users clicked on a particular link. Such information does not identify you individually.
