2. Types of information we collect
This Privacy Statement covers personal information and non-personal data collection and aggregate reporting.

ATAG uses personal information to understand better your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured it will be used only to support any customer relationship you may have with ATAG. We take seriously the trust you place in us. ATAG will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Occasionally, ATAG uses third party consultants or services to manage our events and campaigns.

On some ATAG websites, you can participate in surveys, request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials, register yourself, or apply for a job or internship at ATAG or otherwise be required to provide personal information for other purposes. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs and passwords, billing and transaction information, credit card information, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data.

Providing this additional information is optional.

Generally, you will have the option not to provide the information, and in the future you will be able to "opt out" of certain uses of the information in accordance with the procedure set forth in paragraph 9 below, “Your privacy preferences and opting out”.
