In addition to this Privacy Policy, users of the Website should review the Terms of Use for any additional terms or conditions that may apply.

What Personal Information is Collected and How AIHA LAP Uses It

Voluntary Information

AIHA LAP collects personally identifiable information through the Website, including names, addresses, Zip or postal codes, and email addresses, when voluntarily submitted by a user. AIHA LAP does not collect personally identifiable information from users without user permission, and users may correct, modify, or delete any personal information collected by AIHA LAP by request. Website access is not contingent on user registration or disclosure of personal information, though some Website services may only be available to AIHA LAP members and subscribers.

When you submit information to this Website via webform, we collect the data requested in the webform in order to track and respond to your submissions. We share this information with our hosting provider, so that they can provide website services to us.

Additional uses of your Personal Information uses include to answer your questions/requests and communicate with you; to provide you with other services, products, or information you have requested, for research and development; for general business purposes, including but not limited to program operations, fraud detection, marketing, promotions, fundraising activities and communications; to run/administer our website and for internal operations, to measure or understand the effectiveness of our website and to analyze and improve our services, to audit and/or administer our accounts; to report on the impact and effectiveness of our work; and to satisfy legal obligations which are binding on us. We do not request or store social security numbers from users. Any financial information voluntarily provided, for example, to purchase an AIHA LAP product or service, is collected securely and is discarded after processing.

AIHA LAP stores data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services, or until users request to have their information deleted - whichever comes first. Users may request confirmation as to whether or not their personal data is being processed and to access such data.

How We Share Personal Information We Collect

Except where set out in this Policy, we do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, in general, we may disclose your personal information to third parties in order to achieve the purposes set out in this Policy. For example, we may share personally identifiable information with third-parties:

  • When the person providing the information authorizes us to share it;
  • When the information is shared with a service provider in furtherance of our operations or operations of the Website, for example to process a donation that you make or to fulfill a request that you make;
  • To comply with legal processes such as a subpoena or court order or to otherwise protect your or our legal rights; or
  • For other purposes for which you provided the information.

AIHA LAP has no control over or responsibility for the data collection or use practices of third parties that process online transactions. If, for example, you make a donation to us using PayPal or a similar third-party payment provider, information necessary for processing the transaction is transmitted to the payment provider and is subject to that third party’s own privacy policy. We otherwise do not share any personally identifiable information we receive from a user with any parties outside of AIHA LAP.

Personal information may be collected or processed by third parties and affiliates of AIHA LAP, but will not be shared or used in such a way that an individual is identified.

Except as noted above the AIHA LAP does not provide any third party with user IP addresses, or information derived from user IP addresses.
