AERO CENTERS’s Commitment to Privacy
A. What is Personal Information?
Personal information is information that identifies an individual or that can be reasonably associated with a specific person or entity, such as a name, contact information, Internet (IP) address and information about an individual’s purchases and online activities.
B. Collection of Personal Information
We collect the personal information that you provide us, such as when you:
- Contact us for any reason; or
- Participate in a survey or promotion; or
- Request reservations or services
We may automatically collect some information when you visit our website, such as your computer’s IP address and operating system, the site from which you linked to us, your site activity, and the time and date of your visit. This information may be collected through the use of “cookies” and web beacons. We also receive information from third parties who help us correct our records, prevent fraud, and provide customer services or special promotions or products. We may combine any of this information with the other personal information we maintain about you.
C. Use of Personal Information by AERO CENTERS
The personal information we collect is generally used to process your requests or transactions, provide you with high-quality service, tell you about opportunities we think will be of interest and administer your account, including distribution of our own surveys and publications. For example, we may:
- Communicate membership opportunities and programs; and
- Provide you with promotional information about other Aero Centers products and services (“Promotional Information”).
D. Sharing of Personal Information
We share information in these circumstances:
Processing and issuance of Award Certificates and Program Cards
We may provide to a third-party information as necessary to fulfill a request for Awards Certificate and/or Program Card you have placed with us. Please note that we give suppliers, and others involved in the distribution chain only the information needed to provide you the products or services you order, and we require them to keep the information confidential and not to use it for other purposes. We are not responsible for any information you provide directly to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.
We may contract with others to perform services on our behalf. If any of these service providers need access to your personal information, we require them to use it only to perform the services for us. We also require that they maintain the confidentiality of the information and/or return the information to us when they no longer need it.
E. Other Uses and Disclosures
In addition, we may use or disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to protect you, to comply with legal process or authorities, to respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Aero Centers, our employees, our customers, or the public. Information about Program Participants, including personal information, may be disclosed, or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger or sale of company assets or acquisition.
F. Protection of Personal Information
We have physical, administrative, and technical security measures in place to protect personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration while it is under our control. We are required to collect, process, and maintain payment card information in accordance with the data security rules adopted by credit card companies such as Visa, MasterCard and American Express. This means that we do not retain debit card PINs or credit card security codes, and that any time we maintain a credit card number, such as when you create an online account, we must limit access to it and use strong encryption to protect it. Further, when you enter personal information online, that information is encrypted prior to transmission using a security protocol called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). We also use SSL to allow you to securely view your online account and registration information.
Online account information is accessible only by using a password. You must keep your password confidential. You are responsible for all uses of https://aerocenters.com by anyone using your password. Please advise us immediately by calling 888-380-0685 if you believe your password has been misused.
