Privacy Policy

This policy was last updated on November 30, 2016.

Article | 07.06.2015

This privacy policy applies to the following websites operated by the American Gaming Association (AGA): www.americangaming.org, www.gettoknowgaming.org, www.sportsbettinginamerica.com, www.stopillegalgambling.org, and www.agastore.com (collectively, the “Sites”).  This privacy policy advises our visitors and members of the types of personal information that may be collected on the Sites and the practices that the AGA follows with respect to the use and dissemination of such information.  Your use of the Sites indicates your consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding this privacy policy, please contact us via e-mail at info@americangaming.org, fax at 202-637-2676 or mail to American Gaming Association, 799 9th St NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC 20001.

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).   

Except as set forth in this privacy policy, we do not sell or share the personally identifiable information we collect on the Sites with non-affiliated third parties for their own use.  However, we will provide personally identifiable information to non-affiliated third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, or to otherwise comply with law, to protect our interests or when we believe in good faith the law requires it. 

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.

Use of Cookies

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.

Choice/Opt-Out

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 info@americangaming.org, 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.

Security

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 info@americangaming.org.  To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before we disclose or make any corrections to such information.

Links

As a convenience to you, we provide links to affiliated and other third-party websites on the Sites. Please be aware that other than the Sites specified identified in the first paragraph of this Policy, the websites to which we provide links are not subject to this AGA privacy policy, and we thus recommend that you review the privacy policy of each such website to determine how that website protects your privacy.

Children’s Privacy

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.

Policy Modifications

The AGA reserves the right to change this privacy policy from time to time to reflect changes in our business practices. Any changes to the AGA privacy policy, including information collected and the use and disclosure of information, will be posted here. Following any modification, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this privacy policy, so be sure to check back periodically for the most current version of our privacy policy.
