AIM and our affiliates respect your privacy, and we are committed to protecting your privacy.
Two types of information may be collected when you visit our Site:
Personal information, (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, social security number, credit card numbers, or credit information) which is only collected by us if you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, if you voluntarily create an account with us on our Site, we will receive the account information that you submit so that we may better ensure that you are receiving the information or services that you requested; and
Aggregate information, automatically collected non-identifying statistics, (such as information about how many visitors log on to the Site). Our servers will log IP addresses and collect third-party sites (and information from these sites) from your use of the Site. AIM uses this information to measure the use of our Site, to improve the content of our Site, and to provide our users with the best possible services.
In sum, you can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself. However, you can, if you choose, participate in additional secured applications. For access to these applications, you are required to create an account with us. This form includes information such as name, address, phone number and e-mail address. We use this information to enhance our services, to better meet the needs and preferences of our customers, to allow you to make secure donations and to enhance the security of our Site. If you create an account with us, we may also from time to time, send you information about system changes or new projects and artists that we think may be of interest.
AIM does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide services that you have requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
We may also collect cookies. Cookies are small files of information that are stored on your computer's hard drive by your Web browser. The cookies we use do not contain any personal information. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change the preferences of your browser so that it does not accept them. In order to use all the features of the Site and/or access all of the services, we recommend that you accept cookies.
Links to Other Sites
We provide links to a number of third-party external sites. The inclusion of any link does not imply our endorsement of the external site company, its Website or Websites, or the products and services it promotes or sells. When you leave our Site to visit one of these linked sites, the only information transferred to the third party is the fact that you came from our Site.
AIM is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of these third-party Websites. You should consult the privacy policies at these Websites to determine how your information may be used.
AIM is committed to online data security, and for that reason we take steps to make all information received from you online as secure as reasonably possible from unauthorized access and use. AIM 's secure server software uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. SSL encodes your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, as it travels over the Internet so that all transactions are secure.
Please note that unauthorized access of our Site is prohibited and punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.
We believe that protecting the privacy of children is especially important, and for that reason it is our intention to never collect or maintain information from children at our Site unless the disclosure of such information is done with verifiable parental or guardian consent. If a visitor known to be a child (under the age of 13) sends an e-mail to us, we will only use it to respond to the e-mail writer and not to create profiles or otherwise retain the information.
By using our Site, you consent to the collection and use of this information in the manner we describe.
