Information We Collect

When you visit the AAAS EAS Web site, you provide us with two types of information, both of which are collected by us: personal information that you knowingly choose to disclose, and Web site use information collected by us as you interact with our Web site.

When you enter AAAS EAS Web site, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all AAAS EAS Web site users. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using “cookies.” Cookies are pieces of data stored on a user’s computer tied to information about that user. For example, we use session identification (ID) cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies automatically terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to AAAS. You may block or remove this convenience feature through the settings in your Web browser.

By using this Web site, you agree and acknowledge that your posting of user content (as defined in the AAAS EAS Terms of Use) on the site is done solely at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that our security system will not ever be breached. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the site.

By using the AAAS EAS Web site, you are consenting to have any data you enter transferred to and processed in the United States.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

AAAS will share your information with third parties where such sharing is 1) permitted by you, or 2) legally required. We may also provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the AAAS-specified purposes.

We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We may reveal information if we have a good-faith belief that an information request by regulatory or law enforcement officials or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the AAAS EAS Web site or using the AAAS name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.

Through interactions with third-party sites, we may inadvertently receive some information about you or your use of the third-party site even if you are logged out from the AAAS EAS system, or that pertains to non-AAAS EAS users, from those sites in conjunction with the technical operation of the system.

Terms of Use, Notices and Revisions

Your use of the AAAS EAS, and any disputes arising from it, is subject to this Privacy Policy as well as our Terms of Use and all of its dispute resolution provisions including arbitration, limitation on damages and choice of law. We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use at any time. We may modify this Privacy Policy, effective immediately upon notice to you either by (1) electronic mail or conventional mail, or (2) posting to the site (which shall be deemed constructive notice). Your continued use of the site following notice of any modification to this Privacy Policy shall be conclusively deemed an acceptance of all such modification(s). We encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy.
