Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Sharing your data

Service Provider

In order to process your credit card information to complete your purchase, we must share your personal and financial information with the merchant bank for authorization and approval. This process is protected by security measures to keep your information secure.
 

As required by Law

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law, and when we believe disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served to us.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata may be retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor reviews may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Other than that, we do not share your data.

Security

AAW takes precautions to protect customers information. When you submit sensitive information, your information is protected.

When the order form asks you to enter sensitive information, like a credit card number, that information is encrypted and protected using industry standard SSL encryption software.

Access to all user accounts and information is restricted to the few employees that maintain the website and require access for servicing and updating the system.
