The Alliance stores information in both databases on its corporate network and databases on a third-party network server. Access to both databases is password-protected. No security system is completely infallible. In the event that the Alliance becomes aware that the security of your personally identifying information has been compromised, the Alliance will report any unauthorized access to secured information to the appropriate authorities and provide reasonable support for any subsequent investigation. The Alliance periodically reviews and updates security measures to insure the best possible protections for its users.

If you do that, the Alliance will remove personally identifiable records concerning you from our electronic databases, unless prohibited from doing so by law. However, if you make this request you will no longer receive information from the Alliance.
