Personal information is recorded information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes things such as an individual's name, address, birth date, email address and phone number.

 

Collection
The Active Aging Society collects personal information for the purpose of sharing news and information with those interested, and to enhance the website navigation experience.

When you send us electronic mail, we collect your email address and your message so that we may reply to you. We recommend that sensitive personal information not be sent unencrypted over the Internet or by e-mail.

When you visit our website, the web server collects a small amount of information to facilitate its operation. For example, the website advanced search function collects information to remember the information you submitted for the search. IP addresses are collected to identify unauthorized attempts to change information or damage our systems. We do not capture or store personal information such as your name or home address while you visit and use our website.

The Active Aging Society also uses a variety of public, third-party social media providers. Personal information that you might provide to these social media platforms is not hosted on our server. We recommend that you become familiar with the social media provider’s terms of service and privacy policies.

Web Analytics
Our website is hosted on Wix, and subsequently uses Google Analytics, a third party service to analyze non-identifiable web traffic data with the purpose of improving the services we offer. This data is stored on a secure server. The collected data will not be shared with any other party for any other purpose.
