This Online Privacy Notice applies to this website and any affiliate or subsidiary interface that links to this Notice. In this notice we describe how we collect, use and share your online personal information and the steps taken to protect it. A separate privacy notice would apply to information collected through other means and with other AAA services such as membership, insurance, travel, AAA OnBoard telematics, and AAA mobile applications. Please consult those notices if they apply to you.
Information We Collect: We collect information that you provide directly when you use our website. This could include your contact information (such as your name, postal address, email address, and telephone number), membership number, driver’s license, vehicle and property information, financial account information and other information that you provide. When you visit this site, third parties including advertising partners and analytics providers may collect other non-personally identifying information over time about your online activity across websites and the various devices you use.
We may also indirectly gather information about your online visit including your Internet service provider, Internet Protocol (IP) address, unique device ID, browser type, operating system, the date and time the website that referred you and the pages you visit while at our site.
We gather such information through the use of a “cookie” which is a feature of your Internet browser that places a small file on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie facilitates site navigation for Internet sessions, and helps maintain security. It can remember your personal settings, pre-fill forms for you, and monitor how you use our website which information we use to improve our services. If you do not enable cookies on your browser, you will not be able to use some of the services on our website.
If you provide your email address, we may send you email offers (such as for travel or insurance) and otherwise conduct business with you. With each marketing offer, we will give you the opportunity to opt out of future email offers. If you opt out of marketing offers, we may still email you for non-marketing purposes. For example, we could send an email confirmation if you requested a quote.
Information We Share: We share your information with others as permitted or required by law. This includes within our family of companies, within the AAA federation, with affiliate partners and with other third parties for many reasons. These reasons can include marketing, to process your request for service, to provide a quote or other service, for everyday business purposes, for legal or regulatory purposes, to prevent fraud, to respond to court orders and legal investigations, and to report to insurance service organizations and consumer reporting agencies.
Information Protection: Protecting your information while you visit our website is important to us. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know. Please be aware that, although we make every effort to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
We use third-party advertising networks to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. These companies employ cookies and web beacons to gather anonymous information that permits us to analyze, modify, and improve our advertising content. The information collected is not personally identifiable. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features these third party advertising networks may use, and their information practices are not covered by this privacy notice.
Opting Out & Tracking: Our advertisements that appear on third party sites with the AdChoices icon provide the means for you to opt-out of our advertising network partners’ use of your non-personally identifiable information for interest based advertising (also known as “online behavioral advertising”) purposes. You can do so by clicking on the blue AdChoices icon on one of our online advertisements and then following its instructions.
We also comply with the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising managed by Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). When you opt out, your election is conveyed to the applicable advertising network(s) that then place a cookie on your specific computer and browser. Please note that clearing your browser of cookies will require you to opt out again. To opt out from all participating DAA companies, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.
We do not currently respond to a web browser’s “Do Not Track” signal. Such a signal enables a person to opt out from having information about their web browsing activities monitored and collected; however, since there is not uniform industry agreement as to how to respond, we do not currently honor such a request.
Children’s Privacy: We do not intend to collect personally identifiable information from persons less than 13 years of age. If your child provides us with their personal information, as the parent, you can contact us at the address in the “Contacting Us” section below, to request that your child’s information be deleted from our records. We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate any such request.
