What Information is Collect by ARLC or its Service Providers and When
ARCL and its service providers also collect certain non-personal information, data that does not identify you as an individual person. This information tells us about how people use the site so that we can analyze its effectiveness and provide you with a better web experience. We collect and use this information through a variety of technologies, including “cookies” and analysis applications, as discussed below.
Like every website, ARLC’s servers automatically and temporarily store the following information in the server log files.
This information is provided by your browser, unless you have deactivated the function.
IP address of the enquiring computer
File query by the client
The http response code
The Internet page from which you visited us (referrer URL)
The time of the server query
The browser type and version
The operating system used on the enquiring computer.
The server log files are not analysed with respect to individuals. At no time can this data be attributed to specific individuals.
The data are not pooled with other data sources.
Site Visit Tracking Technologies
As is standard practice on many corporate websites, the Site may use “cookies” and other technologies to help ARLC understand
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus and thus pose no threat to you. Servers and sites other than the one placing the cookie on your hard drive cannot read the cookie, and no personal information can be gathered by other servers from the cookie. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of the Site may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
Like most websites, the Site gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, operating system, internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, date/time stamp of access, and clickstream data. When you visit the Site, the servers automatically log your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, and the time and duration spent on the pages of the Site which you view. If you arrive at the Site by clicking a paid advertisement or a link in an e-mail, then the server will capture information that tracks your visit from that link. If you arrive at the Site by clicking on a non-paid source, such as a search engine result or link on another website, the server may capture information that tracks your visit from that source, to the extent available.
Some of ARLC’s e-mail message to you may contain a “click-through URL” which links to content on the Site. When you click one of these URLS, it passes information through the ARLC web server before you arrive at the destination web page. ARLC may track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in e-mails you receive from ARLC.
ARLC additionally may use web beacons or pixel tags in its e-mails, which are tiny invisible graphic images, to send e-mail messages in a format that customers can read. They also tell ARLC whether e-mails have been opened to assure that ARLC is only sending messages that are of interest to its users. ARLC stores all of this information in a secure database on its web server. Pixel tags may be used as part of ARLC’s use of third party site statistics trackers and analyzers, such as Google Analytics, which ARLC employs to track and analyze the date collected from the Site.
Location Enabled Technology
Some electronic devices include location-enabled technology. If you use these devices to access the site, you may be sending the site information about your location. ARLC does not use or keep this information, except to provide the services you have requested. Your device may allow you to disable this technology.

How ARLC Protects Your Personal Information
ARLC has implemented reasonable physical, technical, and organizational safeguards to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, acquisition, or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Although we strive to keep your personal information secure, no safeguards can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so you should exercise caution when transferring personal and other sensitive information over the Internet. Please advise us immediately at the address listed below of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information that is in our custody or control.

The Site is not aimed at or intended for children. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of thirteen through this site. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have inadvertently collected personal information relating to a child under the age of thirteen, we will delete that information from our records.
California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the California “Shine The Light” law, permits California residents who are users of the Site to request from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) ARLC disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which ARLC shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us at the address provided below.
California Business and Professions Code Section 22575 requires an operator of a commercial site that collects personally identifiable information about California residents to disclose how it responds to web browser "do not track" signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about online activities over time.
Because there is no current industry standard on responding to such signals or mechanisms, ARLC does not respond to them at this time.
Review, Modify, or Delete Your Information
You may change or delete your profile information on the Site at any time by logging in with your user id and password and making modifications directly.
If you request that your registration information be deleted or if you unsubscribe from communications, we may maintain information about your transactions or service inquiries for future service and recordkeeping purposes. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may severely limit our ability to provide you information, products, or services. In some circumstances, we may not agree with your request to change your personal information and will instead append an alternative text to the record in question.
