Collection and use of information
AVP does not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. If you make a donation, register for an event, request to be added to our mailing list or e-newsletter distribution list, for example, we may collect your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information.
If you provide personal information, we may enter that information into our constituent database and contact you in order to:
- Supply you with information, including AVP news and services
- Extend invitations to events
- Request contributions to AVP
We use high-grade encryption and security protocols (Secure Socket Layer-SSL) when processing financial transactions. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it difficult for anyone to intercept the information you send to us. At AVP, data is stored on password-protected servers. Our staff is educated about the importance of safeguarding your information. However, such precautions do not guarantee that our web site is invulnerable to all security breaks. AVP makes no warranty, guarantee or representation that the use of our web site is protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities and that your information will always be secure.
Sharing Information with Others
AVP does not make our donor constituent mailing addresses available to other people or organizations.
We occasionally send out an email newsletter and direct email communications to AVP constituents to highlight news and information. You can elect not to receive communications from us by noting your preference in response to communications from us. In addition, all AVP e-newsletters have easy-to-follow unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.
