We reserve the right to change the provisions of this Policy at any time. We will alert you that changes have been made by indicating on the Policy the date it was updated. We encourage you to review this Policy from time to time to make sure that you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.

What Is Personal Information? As used herein, the term "personal information" means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, date of birth, credit card number, social security number), or information about that individual that is directly linked to personal information. Personal information does not include “aggregate information”, which is data we may collect about the use of the Site(s) or about a group or category of users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
How Do We Collect Information, and What Types of Information Do We Collect?
We collect several types of personal information about you in a number of ways when you visit or use the Site:
Active Collection: We collect certain information when you voluntarily provide it, such as if you send us an email, submit a Request for Membership and/or Banquet information, and receive customer or technical support (including via an online chat widget) or if you otherwise provide or request information. Such information may include various types of personal information. Additionally, we may also collect demographic information such as your age, gender, country and zip code of residence, recent purchases, and preferences. This demographic information may be associated with your personal information. If this demographic information is connected with personal information, we will treat
the demographic information as personal information.
Passive Collection: When you use the Site, some information is also automatically collected. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the personal information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies, though either of those actions may affect the use of our Site.
How Do We Use the Personal Information We Collect? We use personal information we collect through the Site for the purposes described in this Policy or elsewhere on the Site. For example, we may use personal and other information we collect to communicate with the user, contact the user about their inquiry, respond to user inquiries/problems, deliver targeted ads, monitor Site usage trends, and for any other purpose for which the information was collected.
If you no longer wish to receive email, phone calls, direct mail, etc. from us, you may opt out of all future communications by sending your opt out request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
