Information we collect
The Sites collect personally identifiable information when you voluntarily complete a registration form, make a purchase through our e-store or complete other forms or surveys. Depending upon the point of collection, this personally identifiable information includes contact data (such as your name, address, phone number and e-mail address) and financial data (such as a credit card profile), as well as any other types of information you voluntarily provide us as you interact with our Sites.
In addition, our web servers may automatically collect and log web usage data and other information from you when you visit the Site. This information, including the Internet Protocol address of the device you use to access the Sites, referring site, pages viewed and length of visit, informs us about how visitors use and navigate our Sites. We may also use a third party service to track trends and Site usage.
How we use and share information collected
We use personally identifiable information collected through the Sites to verify membership status; to provide products, information or services requested; and to improve the content and effectiveness of the Sites. In addition to the purpose for which you originally submitted the information, we may use the information you provide to make you aware of other AGA benefits, products or events.
We also use your contact information to provide you with information about our industry trade show, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E).
We may also use third-party suppliers and service providers to fulfill the services offered on our Sites and may make personal information (including financial data) available to them to the extent necessary for them to provide services to us (for example, to process a credit card payment or ship you a product). We do not store credit card data on our Sites.
In addition, we may use and share with others aggregated and/or anonymous (not personally identifiable) information that we have collected based on our users’ use of the Sites.
Like most websites, we may employ cookies to help visitors and members more efficiently use the Sites. A cookie is a string of information that is sent by a website and stored on a user’s hard drive. Cookies can enhance your experience by storing your preferences and customizing content for you. If you do not want your browser to accept cookies, you can modify the cookie option in your browser’s settings. You can also set your browser to notify you when a site sends you a cookie. However, some Site features or services may not function properly without cookies.
Our Sites do not honor Do Not Track signals from browsers.
If you would prefer to opt-out of receiving future marketing communications or publications from the AGA, please notify us of your preferences by e-mail at [email protected], and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to fulfill your request. However, we cannot guarantee that the information you provide us has not been already shared with G2E.
Our Sites use industry standard SSL technology (indicated by https: in the URL) when receiving credit card information, and we review and update our security measures as appropriate. While we have measures in place to help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and make proper use of the information that we collect, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure; and we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide to us.
Reviewing your Information
If you want to ask about the personally identifiable information we have collected about you, you may contact us via e-mail at [email protected]. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before we disclose or make any corrections to such information.
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information on the Site from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have personally identifiable information on a child under the age of 13 we will delete that information.
Non-U.S. Visitors to the Site
Please note that the Site is directed towards users who reside in the United States. It is not our intent to gather personally identifiable information from individuals residing outside of the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, the information you provide to the AGA will be transferred to the United States whose laws may not provide the same level of protection for personal information as your home country. By using the Site, you consent to this transfer.
