A. Information Collection and Use and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We have access to/collect information that you give us via direct contact from you, including form completion, examination responses, and email. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender) about yourself, but it is not required. We do not use "cookies" on this site.
In order to use the services offered on this website (for example, to buy and sign up for the Alcohol Server Permit Class), a user must register and create an account with a log-in ID and password. You must provide us with personally identifiable information (like name and address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). We collect the following specific information from each user: (1) personally identifiable student information, including a name, address, phone number(s), email address, computer IP address, and date of birth; (2) student personal profile information; (3) student course activity information (including log in and log off times); (4) credit card information and financial data provided by the student; and (5) course participation work, including at least responses to exam questions and a course evaluation.
We use the information we collect from you to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest, to validate student participation in our course, and to report your participation in the Alcohol Server Permit Class to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board or other state regulatory agency with jurisdiction over liquor sales. We use your personal and financial information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We store the information you provide to us for the period required by applicable law, including the period specified by the Washington State Liquor Cannabis Board or other state regulatory agencies.
We will not sell or rent or provide or otherwise furnish the information we collect from you to any third party except:
- The state liquor cannabis board or other state regulatory agency with jurisdiction over liquor sales
- As necessary to fulfill your request, for example, to report your purchase of our product or online course to the credit card company that issued the card you used to make the purchase;
- To law enforcement
B. Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website. You may also contact us to accomplish the following:
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Correct any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. Our website uses, at a minimum 128 bit SSL encryption registered through a valid and trusted certificate authority we use Comodo.
In addition to using encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Documents used to provide us with personally identifiable information are destroyed after the information on the documents is converted to electronic form. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information in electronic form are kept in a secure environment.
AACEA will not be held liable for any breech of security outside of its scope of record retention.
