What we do with information collected 

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us.  The ALA and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, relevant cookie information, and the page you requested. The ALA uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website.

Broadly speaking, persons we employ directly, or as contractors or agents at our direction, use Active Information for purposes of administering our business activities and providing customer services such as support.  Active information is not shared with other organizations unless authorized by The American Legion for the benefit of our members and site users.  We may use your Active Information to send emails to you with related news, products, offers, surveys, promotions, information, and notify you about updates to the Site. If at any time you do not wish to receive such emails from us, please send us an email at nhalasec@legionnh.org.

We use Passive Information to gather information about our users and to enhance and design the Site to make it easier, faster and friendlier to use. We do not connect any Passive information to your personal information or email address.  The Passive information we collect is used for internal review to improve the content of our Site.
The ALA will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by you.  The ALA will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete and current.  The personal information you provide to The ALA will be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected or as required by law.
