The American Association of Biological Anthropologists (AABA) is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. We've structured our Web sites so that, in general, you can visit us on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information.
AABA only collects personally identifiable data such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address when you voluntarily submit it to AABA either through its sites or the Wiley Scholar One site (Yearbook of Physical Anthropology). This information may be used by personnel of AABA as a means to contact you to obtain more information, to improve this site, or it might be used to provide you with information that you have requested or additional information that AABA believes may be of interest to you. The data will not be transferred to a third party outside of AABA without your prior consent but may be used within AABA or by a company acting as an agent of AABA for processing and mailing purposes. AABA will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others.
As part of the order process, if we collect credit/debit card information, your information will be used to fill your order but we will never share your personal payment information with third parties.
While AABA makes every reasonable effort to protect the information collected through its Web sites, please be aware that there is always some risk involved when submitting data over the Internet. We cannot guarantee that our Web sites are 100-percent safe from illegal tampering or "hacking." Any data transmitted over the Internet may be at risk; however, once it is received at AABA and entered into its database, it has the same protection that AABA extends to its own confidential information.
We track the total number of visitors to our Web site, the number of visitors to each page of the Web site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. No personally identifiable information is gathered in this process.
Updating Your Information
If at any time you wish to stop receiving e-mails or other communications from us, or if you have submitted personally identifiable information through our Web sites and would like to have that information deleted from our records, please notify us using the contact information on our website. You may also request access to personal data about you that AABA holds and you may have the opportunity to request a correction or amendment to your personal data.
The AABA web sites as well as Scholar One have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however please note the following:
Refunds are not issued for purchase of AABA memberships. Membership is canceled when the membership term expires or if an individual or institution requests that the membership be terminated.
