What information does AE collect?
Normal web site usage
In general, you can browse the AE site without telling AE who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. The only information we gather during general browsing is from standard server logs. These include your IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system, and information such as the website that referred you to us, the files you download, the pages you visit, and the dates/times of those visits.
Collection of personally identifiable information
If you register for a newsletter, request information, provide feedback, apply for a job, join a discussion group or join an electronic mailing list, you will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, postal address and e-mail address. This information is collected only with your knowledge and permission and is kept in various AE databases and mailing lists. If you are making a donation, you may be asked to provide your credit card details. These details are transferred to a secure, online payment service, hosted outside AE. Credit card information is not retained by AE.
