Alabama Associated General Contractors (“AAGC”) created this policy statement to help users of this website (“Website”) understand how we collect, use, and protect information about them. The term “user” in this policy statement refers to visitors of the Website. The term “collected information” refers specifically to information collected from the Website.
For each visitor to this Website, we collect the user’s IP address and certain information about the user’s equipment (e.g., type of browser, screen resolution, support for Java). We do not automatically record other user-specific, personal information. Such personal information (e.g., contact information including, contact name, agency name, and email address) is recorded only when volunteered by the user (e.g., when a user submits an application for membership or a Loss Run request). AAGC does not record or save highly sensitive information, like a credit card information or bank account information that a user may provide in relation to a transaction, but instead is only used for that transaction.
Technologies Used To Gather Information
AAGC employs several technologies including but not limited to cookies, web beacons, browser cache technologies, locally stored objects, statistical identifies, clear gifs, embedded script, and similar means.
Use Of Collected Information
AAGC’s primary objective in collecting user information is provide services and benefits to its members and customers. In furtherance of that objective, AAGC may use information we collect from users to: provide services, products, resources, events, surveys, awards, support, and benefits. AAGC may also use information about the same for any of the following: to provide advertisements that may be of interest to the user; measure and improve services and operations, including improving information technological systems; protect AAGC’s legal rights, contractual rights, and the safety, privacy, and security of other users and the general public; send advocacy communications and voter information; and to comply with laws and requests from the public and government authorities. Collected user-specific information is normally incorporated into AAGC’s general database of members and other contacts. While AAGC does not sell user-specific date to third parties for commercial gain, AAGC does share certain information with third parties from time to time (e.g., providing AAGC’s third-party administrator user information in relation to Loss Runs requests). As with the case of certain requests, user information is automatically shared with third parties by virtue of AAGC’s use of third party provided technology. Sometimes, the sharing may be partially for commercial purposes, such as when AAGC provides membership lists (which could include contact information) to companies with which AAGC has an established business relationship. AAGC makes efforts to prevent unaffiliated third parties from using user information for AAGC unauthorized purposes but cannot control, and is not responsible for, the privacy practices or other conduct of such parties.
The site and the servers that store collect information have industry-standard security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under AAGC’s control. You should note, however, that no security system is 100% secure. Authentic website pages requesting credit card information will be secure web pages and sensitive date will be encrypted upon transmission. Absent user consent, AAGC does not knowingly share credit card information with third parties except to the extent necessary for, and incidental to, the purposes for which the user supplied the information.
