Privacy Statement

AOM does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration process for subscription sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), suggestions, voting/polling activities and transactional areas. Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate marketing information about other products, services and offerings from AOM and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any opt out of promotional information by the user, AOM reserves the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.

AOM reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. AOM will provide only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Also, users should be aware that AOM may sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through an AOM site. AOM is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party when providing personally identifiable information.

Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas of the AOM sites, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user’s communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of AOM.

Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of AOM’s Internet servers or through the use of “cookies.” “Cookies” are small text files a web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. Cookies are not programs that come onto a user’s system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Users should be aware that AOM cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for AOM. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on the Site.

On occasion, AOM may provide limited data to third parties that offer products and services for the profession. These limited data are for one time use and only include names and mailing addresses; they do not include phone numbers, fax numbers or e-mail addresses. Users may request to opt out of the data in these instances by contacting Kerry Ignatz, Membership Manager. Please be sure to include your full name and Member ID with all correspondence. Upon request, AOM will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete a member and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a member’s entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

The forgoing policies are effective as of February 10, 2004. AOM reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
