Welcome to our site! We extend the following information to assure you that we are concerned about and respect your privacy while visiting our Web site. AAFA will never sell, lease, rent or disclose your confidential information. However, if it is necessary or required to do so, we will share information for legal reasons. We will always endeavor to take steps to assure that any information you provide to us will remain secure. We want you to feel safe in your online experience while visiting our site. We therefore request that you take a moment to review the following valuable information.
Types of Information we collect and how it is used
AAFA gathers personal information such as names and email addresses when voluntarily submitted by the user. With your permission, we will use personal information collected from you to send you information, such as AAFA updates or fundraising event information. If you elect not to receive such materials, we will not send them to you.
Sharing of Personal Information.
Information About Health
Information accessible on this site is not intended to substitute for professional medical advice and/or information. Information provided is general in nature and may be helpful to some people but not others, depending upon their personal medical needs. You should always consult with your personal physician prior to changing or undertaking a new diet, exercise program or following advice designed for general audiences only. Your physician is typically best able to evaluate whether or not a specific health suggestion or potential course of treatment is best for you. Advance consultation with your physician is especially important if you are under eighteen (18), pregnant, nursing a baby, or have health problems. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay to seek it because of something you may have read on this site.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, currently does not accept paid advertising on our Web site. Funds for Web site operations are derived from the overall annual operating revenues of the organizations.
Our Web site’s e-commerce system uses protection software to transmit data from your computer to our Web site in as safe and secure a manner as possible. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security.
A small piece of data that a website can store on your system is referred to as a “cookie.” Cookies are often used to enhance your online experience. Many browsers recognize when a cookie has been sent to your computer and will give you the option to refuse or allow it.
We have taken every effort to design our Web sites to be useful, informative, helpful, honest and fun. Hopefully we’ve accomplished that — and would ask that you let us know if you’d like to see improvements or changes that would make it even easier for you to find the information you need and want.
