- Activity Logging.
When You use the ALG Site, which may be hosted in part or its entirety by a third party, the ALG Site will collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of “cookies” or Your “IP address”) about Your activities. ALG uses this activity information (the “Activity Information”) for internal purposes such as to administer the ALG Site, improve the ALG Site, and help ALG understand how the ALG Site is being used including the demographics and “clickstreams” of its visitors. “Cookies” are small pieces of information stored on Your hard drive, not on the ALG Site. You are always free to decline cookies if Your browser permits, but in that case, some portions of the ALG Site may not operate properly. An “IP address” is a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer when You use the Internet.
- Personally Identifiable Information.
The ALG Site is designed so that You may generally browse it without providing any Personally Identifiable Information (defined below). Certain areas of the ALG Site, however, may require or allow the voluntarily submission of Personally Identifiable Information (for example, registration to receive ALG publications). ALG uses Your Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes for which it was submitted by You to ALG and for ALG to send you publications and invitations that may be of interest to you. Except as otherwise set forth in this Section 4, ALG does not share Your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties. “Personally Identifiable Information” means information that would allow someone to identify or contact You, such as Your name, physical or electronic mail address, and telephone number; provided, however, that Personally Identifiable Information does not include aggregated information that, by itself, does not permit the identification of individual persons and does not include the Activity Information.
- Removal of Personally Identifiable Information.
ALG will use reasonable efforts to remove Your Personally Identifiable Information from our then current ALG Site at any time upon Your written request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Such removal of Personally Identifiable Information will not ensure the permanent removal of such Personally Identifiable Information from the ALG Site. For example, such Personally Identifiable Information may remain in ALG’s archival or backup copies of the ALG Site.
- Additional Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information.
ALG may share Personally Identifiable Information with third parties, including affiliated firms and third parties performing services for or on behalf of ALG. Such services may include communications, database, event management, hosting, mailing, and marketing services. Additionally, ALG cannot fully ensure that Your Personally Identifiable Information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, ALG may be legally obligated to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, third parties may circumvent ALG’s security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or an error may occur in the administration of the ALG Site. In the unlikely event that ALG needs to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, ALG may, and You authorize ALG to, disclose any information about You to government officials as permitted by applicable law.
