Examples include sending e-mail to users, analyzing data in our database, and removing repetitive information from our database. These third parties have limited access to your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf, and are obligated to ATA not to disclose or use your information for other purposes.
Third Party Advertisers: We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertisers to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. However, we do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.

California “Shine The Light” Law: California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
The California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), specifically, California Business and Professions Code Section 22575, requires website operators like ATA to disclose how ATA responds to “Do Not Track Signals”(DNT); and whether third parties collect personally identifiable information (PII) about users when they visit ATA.
What is Do Not Track (DNT)? Various browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari, offer a DNT option that allows Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites. When DNT is activated, the browser sends a request to the websites the user visits informing them of the user’s DNT preference. You can usually access your browser’s DNT option in your browser’s preferences.
How does ATA respond to DNT? ATA does not respond to DNT signals in browsers because ATA does not track individual members across the web. ATA does not collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time or across third party websites or online services.
What about third parties? No, ATA does not allow third parties to collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different Web sites when a consumer uses ATA’s website or service.
