Thank you for accessing the www.aafdistrict7.com website operated by the American Advertising Federation District 7. We respect your privacy and want to protect your personal information. To learn more, please read this Privacy Policy, which applies to aafdistrict7.com. 

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and (under certain conditions) disclose your personal information. This Privacy Policy also explains the steps we have taken to secure your personal information. Finally, this Privacy Policy explains your options regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information. By visiting the Site directly or through another site, you accept the practices described in this Policy.

This privacy policy applies to the Site only. This privacy policy does not necessarily apply to any offline collection of your personal information. Please see below for details. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any website not operated by the American Advertising Federation to which the Site links or that links to the Site.

By using the Site, you agree to all parts of this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.


1. Information Collection.

We collect information from you when you subscribe to emails. We can use your personal information to:

(a) Email Addresses. Several locations on the Site permit you to enter your email address to sign up for AAF District 7’s newsletters. Your submission is completely voluntary, so you have a choice whether to participate and disclose information to us. 

(b) Cookies and Other Technology. To improve your experience while using the Site, we employ cookies and web beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or “pixel tags”) to collect analytics about the use of the Site.

(i) Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored as text files by your Internet browser on your computer’s hard drive. Most Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to refuse cookies from websites or to remove cookies from your hard drive. 

(ii) Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us determine whether a page on the Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times. For example, any electronic image on the Sites, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon.

(iii) We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any personal information collected by us.

(c) Log Files. As is true of most websites, the Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access the Sites. We may also log your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, internal marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)

(d) Age. We respect children’s privacy. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under age 13. By using the Site, you have represented and warranted that you are either 18 years of age or are using the Site with the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us and request a parent or guardian to assist you.

(e) Social Media. Some web pages on our Site may employ plug-ins for Facebook, Twitter, and other social media channels. When accessing the Site through social media, usage information – such as geographical location, time of day, or type of browser or device – may be collected and used for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. 

2. Information Use and Disclosure.

(a) Communications with You. You may submit your email address to sign up for AAF District 7’s newsletters. If you submit your email address, we only use it to deliver the information to you. We always allow you to unsubscribe or opt-out of future emails (see the “opt-out” section, below, for more details). 

(b) External Use. We want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great selection of programs and products. We do not sell, rent, trade, license, or otherwise disclose your specific personal information or financial information to anyone other than to affiliates under AAF, except that:

(i) We will not sell (or trade or rent) personally identifiable information to other companies as part of our regular course of business, except in the case of our affinity partners. 

(ii) We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.


The Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”). We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online. Access to your personal information is restricted.  

While we take reasonable precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. The use of the Site is at your own risk, and we encourage you to use security measures to protect your personal information.


Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your personal information; (b) stop sending emails to your email address. All email marketing communications include an “opt-out” link in the footer. Please do not email your credit card number or other sensitive information.


As you might expect from us, the majority of information that we collect is obtained through the Site, and this Privacy Policy applies only to that online collection of personal information. We also may collect information offline and treat offline collection, uses, and disclosures consistently with our relevant online practices.


The Site is operated and maintained by AAF District 7, which has no headquarters and is not subject to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than the United States. By using the Site outside of its jurisdiction, you agree to the transfer of information to countries outside of the United States, which may have different data protection rules.


Changes or updates to this Privacy Policy will be posted on the Site so that you will always be aware of what information we collect, use and disclose. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy from time to time so you will know if the Privacy Policy has been changed or updated.
