Cookie/Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets out how and why AIEF collects, uses and discloses information, including personal information.

Personal Information

“Personal Information” means any information, recorded in any form, about an identified individual or an individual whose identity may be inferred or determined from such information, other than business contact information. Business contact information is: name, title, business address, business telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address.

The use of Personal Information is limited to the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Collection of Personal Information

AIEF collects information to:
provide products, services or information;
comply with any legal or regulatory requirement; and
such other purposes consistent with the foregoing purposes.

How AIEF Uses Personal Information

This website only collects, uses and discloses Personal Information for purposes that would be considered reasonable in the circumstances and only such information as is required for the purposes of providing products, services or information.


Unless permitted by law, no Personal Information is collected, without first obtaining the consent of the individual concerned to the collection, use and dissemination of that information. However, AIEF may seek consent to use and disclose Personal Information after it has been collected in those cases where AIEF wishes to use the information for a purpose not identified in this Privacy Policy or not previously identified or for which the individual concerned has not previously consented. In the event an individual, who provides information to AIEF, does not indicate his/her consent, the submission of the information to AIEF constitutes the consent of an applicant to the use of his or her personal information for these purposes.

When AIEF May Disclose Your Personal Information

AIEF does not sell, rent or trade Personal Information to anyone.

AIEF may release Personal Information, which is not already public, when AIEF believes, in good faith, when it is reasonably necessary to:

  • comply with any legal or regulatory requirement;
  • protect the legal rights, property or safety of AIEF, AIEF’s members, staff, management, service providers; or
  • provide you a product, service or information.

AIEF may provide aggregate statistics about this website’s operation to third parties, but these statistics will not have personally-identifying information. Where AIEF discloses Personal Information to organizations that perform services on AIEF’s behalf, AIEF will require those service providers to use such information solely for the purposes of providing services to the person concerned or AIEF and to have appropriate safeguards for the protection of your Personal Information.

Where obliged or permitted to disclose information without consent, AIEF will not disclose more of Personal Information than is required.

Accuracy and Retention of Personal Information

AIEF takes reasonable steps to ensure that any Personal Information provided to AIEF and in AIEF’s possession is as accurate, current, and complete as necessary for the purposes for which AIEF uses that information. If AIEF becomes aware that Personal Information is inaccurate, incomplete, or out of date, AIEF will revise the Personal Information and, if necessary, use AIEF’s best efforts to inform third parties which were provided with inaccurate information so that those third parties may also correct their records.

AIEF retains Personal Information only as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected. When Personal Information is no longer required by AIEF, AIEF will employ reasonable methods to destroy, delete, erase, or convert that Personal Information into an anonymous form.

Protection of Personal Information

AIEF takes reasonable steps to maintain appropriate security so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of Personal Information. AIEF also takes these reasonable steps regarding disposal or destruction of Personal Information.

From time to time, AIEF audits AIEF’s information management practices and security procedures to ensure compliance with this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

Access to Personal Information

AIEF permits the reasonable right of access and review of Personal Information held. AIEF will use AIEF’s best efforts to provide the information requested within a reasonable time. Where Personal Information will not or cannot be disclosed, the individual making the request will be provided with the reasons for non-disclosure.
