Privacy Policy

AFIRE is headquartered in Washington, DC, in the United States. Our website address is www.afire.org. Our members-only address is web.afire.org.

AFIRE considers the privacy of users and visitors of afire.org, web.afire.org, and/or AFIRE mobile applications (“the Website”) to be extremely important. AFIRE understands that Website users and visitors want to be in control of their personal information. AFIRE presents information on the Website that is tailored to the needs of our users and visitors, subject to the AFIRE Terms of Use. For this reason, we may ask users and visitors register or to provide personal information when they visit certain areas of the Website.

For the purposes of compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), AFIRE has established this Privacy Policy, which describes in detail the types of personal information collected, recorded, or used on the Website. This policy also describes the choices you can make about how we collect, use, or disclose your information when you provide it to us on the Website. AFIRE will not collect, use or disclose your personal information other than in compliance with this policy.

By using the AFIRE Website, you agree to the terms and conditions of AFIRE’s Privacy Policy. We will use the personal information you share with us to ensure the content and services that we provide on the Website are tailored to your current and future needs based on your requests.

If you provide the Website with your mailing address, email address, or telephone number, AFIRE may use this information to alert you of events, services, products and publications, services, and membership-related information. If you would like to opt out of contact or would like to request your details, you may do so by contacting info@afire.org.

If AFIRE’s Privacy Policy changes in the future, we will notify our customers and website users of any such changes by posting an updated policy on our website (www.afire.org/privacy-policy). If AFIRE makes any material changes, we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this site prior to the change becoming effective.

Following the posting of such non-material changes, your continued use of afire.org and/or web.afire.org will constitute your acceptance of these changes and you will be bound by such changes. If you do not continue to use the Website following a change to our Privacy Policy, but take no other action with respect to your personal information, AFIRE’s use of that information will remain subject to our Privacy Policy as it was in effect prior to the change. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this policy and any changes thereto.

We may offer visitors of the Website and AFIRE members the ability to connect to the Website or use our applications, services, and tools using a mobile device, either through a mobile application or via a mobile-optimized website. The provisions of this Privacy Policy apply to all such mobile access and use of mobile devices. This Privacy Policy will be referenced by all such mobile applications or mobile-optimized websites.

If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still visit most of the Website. However, you will not have access to areas that require personal identification that is used to provide information regarding events, services, products and publications, services, and membership-related information.
