AIMU American Institute of Marine Underwriters

We respect your privacy. This is why we have taken the time to disclose our information collection practices and our privacy policy. Please take the time to review this document.

We collect information for the following purpose(s):

  • AIMU may request and/or collect information from you on a voluntary basis when you: (1) apply for membership with us; (2) register for an event; or (3) fill out an online survey. The requested information may include personal information such as name, e-mail address, telephone number, home address and business address.  To be able to view some portions of the web site, we may also ask you to create a password.  Billing information including credit card number, credit card billing address, and expiration date is collected to process payment for event registrations.  Credit card numbers are entered on a server secured using SSL encryption.  Finally, the online surveys on the web site collect information that members voluntarily submit about their businesses and expertise and that information may be shared with other members of AIMU.
  • Individuals may make changes to personal information submitted for a membership application, an event registration or an online survey by emailing and requesting a change.  AIMU will take reasonable efforts to implement any changes requested.

Who has access to the information we collect?

  • In addition to AIMU, our third-party service providers also have access to the information that we collect, but this access is limited. AIMU employs third-party service providers to perform functions on our behalf, including credit card payment processors and online form processors. These service providers have access to your personal information as needed to process credit card payments and store information entered on a web site form into a database for use by AIMU. These third-party service providers may not use your personal information for any other purposes, including marketing.  Information is shared with our partners who share our privacy policy. In addition, before AIMU engages any third-party service provider, AIMU confirms that the provider has a reasonable privacy policy in place to protect your information.
  • AIMU shares information voluntarily provided in survey responses with other AIMU members.  If you do not want your survey responses to be shared with other members, you should not respond to a survey.  AIMU cannot control its members’ use of survey responses.

How long is information kept?

  • AIMU only collects, retains and uses personal information where we believe it is essential to maintain our membership lists, host events, and provide an exchange of voluntarily supplied industry-related information among our members, and other purposes intended to promote the mission of our organization and the interests of our members. We will take appropriate reasonable steps to ensure the security and integrity and timely and proper disposal of any personal information collected until it is discarded when no longer needed.

Changes to the policy

  • AIMU may revise this policy.  AIMU will provide you with notice of any change to this policy by posting it our website [one week] before AIMU implements the change to notify you of these changes.

If you believe that our website has collected incorrect information or if you would like to dispute any information, please contact us using the address at the top of this page.
