Such information, which is not stored in connection with any other personally-identifiable information about you, may be used by AIC and its third party service providers to analyze how our network and services are used, improve the App, and conduct research.

If you choose to use the digital member card feature, the App stores your name and a barcode representation of your AIC Member ID.

Your information collected from your use of the App is not shared with third parties except for AIC’s third party analytics services, but anonymous general information may be shared with third parties such as the number of users of the App or the number of times a feature is used. However, AIC may disclose your information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. We may retain information collected from your use of the App for as long as you use the App and for a reasonable time thereafter.

You can opt out of location tracking by the App in the App and/or in iOS or Android settings at any time. AIC does not offer a way to completely opt out of analytics or other technical data collection related to your use of The App. 

By using the App, you are consenting to our processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by AIC. Processing activities will take place in the United States. If you reside outside the United States your information will be transferred, processed and stored there under United States privacy standards.
