This statement of privacy applies to the AIIT online pay website, and governs data collection and usage. By using the AIIT online pay website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

AIIT online pay collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address, and telephone number. AIIT online pay also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.

AIIT online pay also automatically collects information about your computer hardware and software. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. AIIT online pay uses this information for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the AIIT online pay website.

Please keep in mind that others may collect and use personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data if you disclose such details through public AIIT message boards.

Note: AIIT does not read any of your private online communications.

AIIT encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from AIIT so you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. AIIT is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the AIIT family of websites.

Use of your Personal Information

AIIT collects and uses your personal information to operate the AIIT online pay website and deliver the services you have requested. AIIT also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from AIIT and its affiliates. AIIT may also contact you via surveys to solicit your opinion about current services or potential new services that may be offered.

AIIT does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties. AIIT may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personally identifiable information (email, name, address, and telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, AIIT may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

AIIT does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations without your explicit consent.

AIIT keeps track of the websites and pages you visit within AIIT's family of websites in order to determine which AIIT services are most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within AIIT to customers whose behaviors indicate they may be interested in a particular subject area.

AIIT websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AIIT online pay or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AIIT; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of AIIT or the public.

Use of Cookies

The AIIT online pay website uses cookies to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a webserver in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the webserver that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize AIIT online pay pages, or register with AIIT online pay sites or services, a cookie helps AIIT online pay recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same AIIT online pay website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use your customized AIIT online pay features.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the AIIT online pay service or of other websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

AIIT online pay secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. AIIT secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information, like a credit card number, is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption (including the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol).

Changes to this Statement

AIIT occasionally updates this statement of privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. AIIT encourages you to periodically review this statement to stay informed of how AIIT is protecting your information.
