This Statement of Privacy applies to aagw.org and AAGW ("Association of Albanian Girls and Women") and governs data collection and usage.  For the purposes of this Statement of Privacy, unless otherwise noted, all references to AAGW and Association of Albanian Girls and Women include aagw.org.  The AAGW website is an information and ecommerce site. By using the AAGW website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

In order to better provide you with information and products offered, AAGW may collect personally identifiable information when you use this website or otherwise interact with us, such as your:

 

  • First and Last Name

If you purchase AAGW's products, we collect billing and credit card information. This information is used to complete the purchase transaction.  We do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain personal information to us when you elect to submit your credit card or other payment information when ordering and purchasing products.  We may use your information for, but not limited to, communicating with you in relation to products you have requested from us.

 

Use of your Personal Information

 

AAGW collects and uses your personal information to operate and deliver any products you may request or to be able to respond to any communication you may make with us.

 

Moreover, AAGW is hosted on the Wix.com platform.  Wix.com provides us with the online platform that allows us to provide information and sell our products to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications.  They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.  

 

All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by AAGW adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

 

Sharing Information with Third Parties

 

AAGW does not sell, rent, lease, or share its customer lists or any data to third parties.

 

AAGW may disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AAGW or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AAGW; and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of AAGW, or the public.

 

Security of Your Personal Information

 

AAGW’s website is hosted on the Wix.com platform, which secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure via the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. 

 

If any personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the SSL protocol.

We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet that are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this website cannot be guaranteed.

Subject to certain exceptions set out below, on receipt of a verifiable request from you, we will:

 

 Delete your personal information from our records; and

 

• Direct any service providers to delete your personal information from their records.

 

Please note that we may not be able to comply with requests to delete your personal information if it is necessary to:
