Automated Collection of Non-Personal Information
You can visit the Site without telling ACT who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, ACT’s web servers capture Site statistics (such as Internet Protocol addresses, URLs, and web pages) and monitor traffic patterns to determine traffic levels on the Site in order to improve the content being provided on the Site and for other purposes related to ACT’s business. This information is non-personally identifiable and does not reveal your identity. ACT may, in ACT’s sole discretion, use this information or aggregate this information and use it for any purpose.
Collection of Personal Information
When you take advantage of ACT products or services, such as registering for a conference, or applying for a grant on ACT’s Site, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information. Providing this information is voluntary, although it may be necessary to receive certain ACT products or services. You should not submit information of any kind to ACT if you do not want ACT to have access to or use of that information in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
Use of Personal Information
When you give ACT information, you are expressly consenting that ACT and/or its agents can use the information to deliver and confirm the products or services you requested or contact you again about other products, services, or membership offers.

ACT uses industry-standard encryption technologies when collecting personal information through forms on the Site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

If you provide information to ACT via email, you should know that email is not encrypted and is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication includes personal information, and you prefer not to use one of our secure online forms, contact us by postal mail, fax or telephone rather than email.
These Terms and Conditions will be construed solely in accordance within the laws of the State of Alabama, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws. Any actions, proceedings or suits concerning or relating to this Agreement may only be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Montgomery, Alabama, or in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, and you hereby consent to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts, and waive any objections thereto. In the event any provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined to be invalid, such invalidity will not affect the validity of remaining provisions, and the parties will substitute for the invalid provision a provision which most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the invalid provision. Failure by either party to complain of any act or failure to act of the other party or to declare the other party in default, irrespective of the duration of such default, will not constitute a waiver of rights hereunder. These Terms and Conditions constitute the complete agreement between you and ACT with respect to the Site and supersedes all prior communications and agreements. ACT may at any time, in its sole discretion, revise these Terms and Conditions by updating them on ACT’s internet site www.theriogenology.org.
