Data Collection

AASLH does not collect domain or e-mail address information from visitors to our web pages. However, we do collect aggregate information on which pages customers access/visit as well as information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations. The site utilizes “cookies” to record session information, such as items that consumers add to their shopping cart. The information we collect online is used to improve the content of our website, and will not be shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

AASLH only collects personally identifiable information about you when you specifically and knowingly provide such information. For example, we may gather personally identifiable information about you (including, but not limited to, your name, street address, telephone and facsimile numbers, e-mail address, level of education, profession, job title, and credit card information) during the following interactions, including but not limited to: membership application and renewal; event registration, purchase of a product or publication on our website, answer a survey or questionnaire, sign up for electronic communication, etc.

Use of personal information

AASLH uses personally identifiable information to enhance your experience on our website, to enhance our services to you, and to enhance your experience with AASLH. Your personal information may be used to provide you with information about AASLH activities, through various outlets including mail, email, phone, and fax. The information will not be used for any commercial or philanthropic purpose not directly connected with or approved by AASLH.

Members/customers who supply AASLH with their email address as part of the registration process for on-site or on-line workshops or the AASLH annual meeting, do so with the understanding that their email address will be included on the attendee list and distributed to other meeting attendees and/or exhibitors.  If you do not wish to share your email address with other workshop or meeting attendees you can request that your information not be included in the attendee directory.

If you do not want to receive e-mail from us in the future, please let us know by contacting us through e-mail, telephone, or written correspondence (see contact information above).

Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed online.

You may also receive mailings from other reputable companies.  You can have your name put on our do-not-share list by contacting us through e-mail, telephone, or written correspondence (see contact information above).

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice.  If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post the policy changes to our web site to notify you and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses.  If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check this page periodically.

Upon request, we provide site visitors with access to unique identifier information (e.g., customer number or password) that we maintain about them and contact information (e.g., name, address, and phone number) that we maintain about them.  Consumers can access this information by contacting us through e-mail, telephone, or written correspondence (see contact information).

Upon request, we offer visitors the ability to have inaccuracies corrected regarding their contact information, financial information, unique identifiers and communications that the consumer/visitor has directed to the site.  Consumers can have this information corrected by contacting us through e-mail, telephone, or written correspondence (see contact information above).
