This privacy policy demonstrates our commitment to protecting your personal information online. It explains collection and use of the information we learn about you from your visit to our website, and which you give us.

We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you voluntarily provide it.

 

What personal data we collect and why

Non-personal information

We collect and store the following non-personal information from you:

  • the IP address and/or domain name from which you access the internet
  • the date and time you access our site
  • the files requested from our site (as well as whether they were successfully received or any errors that were encountered)
  • the internet address from which you linked to our site
  • any search terms you used to find our site
  • details of your web browser and operating system

This may be linked to the personal data you provide.

We use this data to measure the number of visitors to sections of our site and evaluate traffic statistics (such as times of day and days of the week when peak traffic occurs) in order to improve performance and help make our site more useful to visitors.

Except as might be required by law or to carry out our business, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties – other than in an anonymous, aggregated format.

Personal information

In some areas of our website, we ask you to provide personal information that will enable us to enhance your site visit or contact you with the information you request or that may be of interest to you, such as when you subscribe to our e-newsletter, make a donation, or make a purchase.

 

Contact forms

You may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an e-mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer your questions. We won’t share your name or email address with any outside parties.

 

Opt-out

If you wish to opt out of specific online or offline communications, or for us to remove you from our database altogether, please contact us.

 

Cookies

Cookie are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Like many websites, AVS uses cookies to provide you with a more personalized web experience.

 

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves as if the visitor is on the other website. These websites may collect data about you, embed third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction.

 

How is the information used?

We only send you information about our work by email where you’ve given us your consent to do so.  You can ask us to stop sending  information by contacting us anytime at info@americanvegan.org or by unsubscribing on the email.

We don’t send out spam (random, untargeted emails).

AVS will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except as outlined in this policy or when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe the law requires it.

 

Security

We keep your personal information secure and  take appropriate precautions to protect it. Our server and its security are monitored regularly.

All pages that accept credit card information use secure server software (SSL) with 128-bit encryption: the industry standard for secure commercial transactions. This encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.

Despite all of our precautions, however, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please understand that you provide information knowing the risk.

We also protect your personal information off-line. We take steps to ensure that access to personal information is restricted to employees who need it. AVS employees who handle personal information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

We cannot, however, be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information whether we hold it on- or off-line.
