Information We Collect

There are three types of information that can be collected on this web site - usage information, non-personal information and personal information.

  • Usage Information Our web server automatically recognizes and saves the domain name and IP address through which you arrived on the site. Other aggregate, site information we may collect includes information like entry page, time on site and number of page views. This data is used for internal review of traffic patterns to and on our site and can help us to improve our users'; experience. None of this information is personally identifiable and will only be used to find out how site visitors use our services and the site.
  • Non-Personally Identifiable Information We may also request non-personally identifiable information, such as annual income range, buying preferences, education and age range, also known as demographic and profile data but this information is optional. This data helps us to determine the interests of our site visitors and lets us tailor site content, events and news, accordingly. Aggregate and anonymous information may be shared with our member organizations but the ACCVA does not sell this information to third parties.
  • Personal Information If you request information from the ACCVA by filling out a form on the site, we may need your e-mail address, street address or phone number in order to respond. This information is added to the the ACCVA database but its use is strictly limited to responding to your request unless authorized by you.

The ACCVA does not collect or store any personal information that you do not expressly provide nor will it send you any additional emails past satisfying your request unless you expressly agree to receive these emails. This is called "opting in." If you opt in, you will receive occasional emails from the ACCVA notifying you of events, concerts and regional or travel news of interest. You may unsubscribe at any time.

A Special Note about Children

The ACCVA recognizes that its website isn';t just appealing and interesting to adults; the site may also be attractive to children. While the ACCVA does not encourage children to use the site, it takes its responsibility to protect children';s privacy seriously. In compliance with COPPA, the Children';s Privacy Protection Act, the ACCVA does not, knowingly, collect personal information (name, address, email address, phone number) from children. The ACCVA also encourages parents and teachers to be involved in and aware of children';s Internet use and encourages children to get permission before providing any information online.

If information is provided by a child without his or her parents'; permission and the ACCVA unwittingly collects it, the ACCVA will provide parents with a description of the specific types of personal information collected from the child, the opportunity at any time to refuse to permit the ACCVA further use or maintenance of the child';s personal information and a means that is reasonable for the parent to obtain any personal information collected from that child.
