Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.
Our websites and apps are not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly solicit data online from, or market online to, children under 13 years of age.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information AIA may collect and how we may use it.
How we use your personal information
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on AIA’s latest information, share our program information and program updates. It also helps us to improve our services, our resource content, member communications, and advertising. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime.
We may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with AIA, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve AIA’s products, services, and member communications.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
We also collect non-personal information − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
We may collect information such as program information gathered from surveys, zip code, area code, so that we can better understand our membership to improve our products, services, and advertising.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Disclosure to AIA Members
Personal contact information of AIA members will be available to other members via the “Members Only Resources”. You can opt out anytime.
Disclosure to Third Parties
At times AIA may make certain personal information available to our partners and affiliates that work with AIA to provide information on products and services, on a one-time use basis. You can opt out anytime by sending them an email with your request.
Protection of Personal Information
AIA takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
AIA online services such as the Product Store use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected.
When you use some AIA applications or post on a forum, chat room, or social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
Integrity and Retention of Personal Information
Access to Personal Information
You can help ensure that your contact information is accurate, complete, and up to date by logging in to your account. For other personal information, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data
How do we share your information?
We do not share Personal Information with anyone except as described below. We may share Personal Information as required or as permitted by law, such as:
with regulatory authorities, courts, and governmental agencies to comply with legal orders, legal or regulatory requirements, and government requests;
with our partners and affiliates who perform services for us and help us operate our business
Privacy Protections for Children
Most AIA Services are intended for a general audience and do not knowingly collect or store contact information about children under the age of 13. Some AIA Services may ask for your full date of birth date to ensure that they are not collecting information from children under 13 or to identify when additional steps may need to be taken when information has been collected from children under 18. In those instances where a AIA has actual knowledge that it collects information from children or offers a service directed toward children as defined under applicable laws, it will comply with those laws.
