Information Collection and Use
We will collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, including your contact and company name, address, telephone number, industry classification, and email address. AEC may use and store such information in order to notify you of official AEC business, provide a product or service you requested, secure your business relationship, evaluate needs and interests, and alert you of AEC news, activities, services, and benefits. We create a personal profile with this information that you can edit at any time to add, change or remove your data. We do not sell your personal information to anyone and only share personal information with third-party providers in order to complete a specific business transaction on behalf of AEC. Contact information from inquiries received by AEC may be shared with AEC employees or Council leadership to provide a service, satisfy an inquiry, or develop a prospective business relationship.
As a member or non-member, when you provide personal information to register for AEC events, the AEC will use that data to provide you with information related to the event, future events, news and services that may be of interest to you.
Information collected when becoming a member, registering for an event or purchasing an item in the online store, is stored in a database hosted by a third party, YourMembership (“YM”), based in the United States. YM does not use or access your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval.
YM provides a Member Directory/Member Search feature on the website that allows members to share their information. Members can opt-in or opt-out of sharing their information by updating their profile or contacting the AEC via the information at the end of the policy.
By attending and/or participating in AEC events, you grant the AEC rights to capture your image and likeness on video, photograph, or audio for promotional and marketing purposes. You may, at any time, request for AEC to remove your image and likeness by contacting the AEC. If requested and if possible, we will remove your photo or video within a reasonable amount of time.
