Our site collects information about you and how you use our site to better understand your needs and to improve our technology. We do not collect "personally identifiable information" about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as your name, mailing address, some email addresses (when your real name is part of the address), SSN, or telephone number. You do not have to provide any personally identifiable information to use our sites.

Besides the information above, we only collect personally identifiable information that you submit to us, including but not limited to personal data (i.e., your name, mailing address, and email address), for example when you request further information. Additionally, we may also collect aggregate information regarding users of our sites.
This information is used solely by AE to respond to your requests for information, or in relation to specific promotions. We may also use the information to occasionally notify you about important changes to our sites, new products and services, special offers and information we think you’ll find valuable. AE DOES NOT SELL OR TRANSFER ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US TO THIRD PARTIES. AE reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of our sites, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.

3. User Generated Content
Our site enables you to post and share content and questions with each other in various ways. When posting any content onto our sites, please be aware that your post can be seen by any visitor to the site unless you indicate otherwise.

4. Children Under 13
AE cares about protecting the privacy of children. We won't knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personally identifying information. Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We encourage you to become involved in your children's online experience, and to share your interest in our sites with your young ones.

6. IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is associated with your computer each time you access the Internet. This is determined by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the address may or may not change each time. IP addresses are not associated with personally identifiable information. Like other Internet sites, we use IP addresses to collect summary information about users and site usage. This information is recorded by our Web servers. We may use the IP address to identify individuals who attempt to illegally compromise our site or disrupt service to our users.
We may share anonymous, summary information about users with sponsors, advertisers, or other third parties. Such summary information cannot be used to identify an individual. We may use summary data for statistical purposes.
