As you navigate through this site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or web beacons.
This site may use and combine passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to site visitors, customize the site based on visitor preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the site for use.

In certain sections of the Website you may be asked to provide us with personal information, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, a password, and other identifying information. If you choose to submit a membership renewal or application, we will collect additional personal information up to and including your billing address, shipping address, and a credit card number and expiration date in order to process your submission properly; and, such information will be shared with applicable third parties (i.e, payment processing providers), so they may process the transaction accordingly.
Your personal information enables us to provide you with the information you have requested, with information regarding the status of your membership and transactions, and with information regarding future opportunities that may suit your particular interests. We also use your personal information to help identify you if you lose your password and to help you quickly find information on the Website.

Once a standardized "do not track" feature is released, AARS intends to adhere to the browser settings accordingly.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
