Privacy Policy

American Foundation for Addiction Research (“us,” “we” or “our”) created this Privacy Policy in order to ensure the confidence of visitors (“you” or “your”) to (the “Website”), and to demonstrate our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of privacy.

1. Types of Information Collected

We use session cookies to enable us to keep track of your movement from page to page so you do not get asked for the same information you have already provided us. Cookies allow you to proceed through many pages of a site quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit.

In order for you to have an account, we require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”) which may include your name, IP address and e-mail address. If you communicate with us by e-mail, or complete online forms, or surveys, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.

2. Uses of Information Collected

We use Personal Information to send you information about our company or services or our affiliates’ products or services, or to contact you when necessary.

3. Confidentiality and Security of Personal Information

Except as otherwise provided in the Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless you choose to post your Personal Information in a public forum on the Site or unless such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a court order or other legal process; (b) protect our rights or property; or (c) enforce our Terms of Use. Your Personal Information is stored on secure servers that are not accessible by third parties.

4. Lost or Stolen Information

You must promptly notify us if your user name or password is lost, stolen or used without permission. In such an event, we will cancel that account and assign you a new user name and password and update our records accordingly.

5. Other Limits to Your Privacy

The Website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. If we permit you to comment on the website, the information that you disclose becomes public information. We have no control over its use and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information.

6. Updates and Changes to Privacy Policy

We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to add to, change, update or modify this Privacy Policy, simply by posting such change, update or modification on the Website. Any such change, update or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on the Website.
