Autism Awareness Centre Privacy Statement
The Autism Awareness Centre takes the issue of privacy very seriously. This policy is intended to help you understand how The Autism Awareness Centre collects, uses, safeguards and discloses the information collected on our website, at the point of conference registration, newsletter sign up, and book ordering.
Collection of Information

1. Information Collected From You
Visitors may generally browse public portions of the Autism Awareness Centre website anonymously without providing any personal information. However, Autism Awareness Centre asks for personal information in connection with registering for conferences. In addition, personal information will be requested in connection with purchasing products or services, requesting additional information, signing up for newsletters, submitting questions, commenting on the blog, or otherwise to participate in this website.
Accessing, Correcting, and Deleting Your Personal Information

You may request that we delete personal information about you that is inaccurate, incomplete, or irrelevant for legitimate purposes, or is being processed in a way which infringes any applicable legal requirements, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At our election, instead of deleting such information, we may retain it with your comment or correction noted in our records. We may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details before we are able to provide you with any information, correct any inaccuracies, or delete any information.
If you make purchases on the Autism Awareness Centre website you have elected to maintain an account with us. You may change, modify and delete any information gathered on your account by logging in with your username and password which you saved at the time of purchase.
We are unable to modify your account for you, but if you would like to have your account deleted please notify us at: email@example.com

The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or any method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

Specifically: If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. We follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
Spam Protection and Commenting Policy
We analyze the comments on the Autism Awareness Centre blog, potentially containing users’ personal data, with the purpose of filtering it from parts of traffic, messages and content that are recognized as SPAM. We moderate the blog so that comments which we perceive as inflammatory, which are medically inaccurate or misleading, or which are hateful or disparaging are removed.
Third Party Services
Third party services have no access to any information we collect. Ever.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so.
For example, we may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or as otherwise required by law.
We may also disclose personal information to assist us in collecting a debt owed by you, or otherwise where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we understand that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no through an opt-in and opt-out process.
