Indiana Association of Cities and Towns dba Aim (referred to as Aim throughout this policy) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Aim website and governs data collection and usage. By using the Aim website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
Aim collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address, and telephone number. Aim also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, and interests.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Aim. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by Aim for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Aim website.
Aim encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from the Aim website so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. Aim is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on website outside of the Aim and Aim family of websites.
Use of your Personal Information
Aim collects and uses your personal information to operate the Aim website and deliver the services you have requested. Aim also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Aim and its affiliates and partners. Aim may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Aim does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties. Aim may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Aim may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Aim, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Aim does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Aim keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within the Aim website, in order to determine what Aim services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Aim to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Aim websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Aim or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Aim; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Aim, or the public.
The Aim family of websites uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Aim pages, or register with an Aim site or services, a cookie helps the Aim website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the Aim website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Aim services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
Aim secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Aim secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
Aim will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Aim encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Aim is protecting your information.
Aim welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that Aim has not adhered to this Statement, please contact Aim at [email protected]. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
