Personal Information and Choice

You may choose whether to provide personal information on-line.

"Personal Information" is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, phone number, social security number, bank (checking) account number, and credit card number.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us email, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. You may choose not to contact us by email, participate in a survey or to provide any personal information using an online form. Your choice to not participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse the AWWD Web site and read or download any information provided on the site.

If personal information is requested on the Web site or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

If you believe that your Personal Information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact the agency contact person or position as shown in the Contact Information Section of this statement.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) governs information gathering online from or about children under the age of 13. AWWD is especially concerned about protecting children's privacy.

AWWD does not require children to reveal any information that could personally identify them. If a child chooses to provide personally identifying information to us then the child must get his/her parents' permission before providing any information on line at our site or any other site.

AWWD does not sell or rent your Personal Information. AWWD does not release your Personal Information for marketing purposes. AWWD does not share your Personal Information in a manner that differs from what is described in this Privacy Notice without your consent.

AWWD may use and disclose your Personal Information for the following purposes:

  1. To complete transactions and render products and services authorized by you, such as sharing the information to allow the bank to authenticate you, to pay a bill, and to send messages to you related to authorized products and services;
  2. To perform fraud screening, to verify your identity, or verify information contained in your account;
  3. To comply with laws and regulations, including compliance with court orders of lawful instructions from a government agency, to protect the personal safety of Rate Payers or the Public, to defend AWWD from claims, and to protect AWWD rights and property; and
  4. As otherwise authorized by you.
