Privacy Policy

The ‘Aiea community Association (“ACA”) operates the ‘Aiea Community Association website at www.aieacommunity.org. It is ACA’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ACA collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ACA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ACA’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ACA may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

ACA also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. ACA only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ACA’s website choose to interact with ACA in ways that require ACA to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ACA gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our mailing list to provide an email address. Those who sign up for membership with the ACA are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ACA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ACA. ACA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

ACA may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. ACA may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ACA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ACA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its agents and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ACA’s behalf or to provide services available at ACA’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using ACA’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ACA will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ACA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ACA believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ACA, third parties or the public at large. If you have signed up for our mailing list, ACA may occasionally send you an email to tell you about what’s going on with ACA and the community. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ACA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Orders

We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. ACA uses cookies to help ACA identify and track visitors, their usage of the ACA website, and their website access preferences. ACA visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using ACA’s websites, with the drawback that certain website features may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If ACA, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that ACA goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of ACA may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
