III. What Does AACVB Do with the Information It Collects?
The primary reason why we collect information from you is to provide you with the services that you request and to enhance your experience at our website. Services such as the free mailing of the Aurora Area Visitors Guide would be impossible without the personal information that you provide to us. We also use the information we collect to make sure that our website provides you with the resources you need and the level of quality you expect. For example, information about the sections of the website that people visit most frequently and least frequently helps us to decides which features website users find useful and which features need some changes. In addition to our internal use of the information we collect, your personal information is used to help make sure that you receive all the information you need to make your stay in the Aurora area as pleasant as possible. One way we do this is by using your e-mail address to send you periodic updates about the Aurora area. We do NOT share your information with outside vendors and mailing organizations. If you have subscribed to our regular e-news emails and prefer that AACVB not email you anymore, you can unsubscribe on our website, or by calling us at 630-256-3192.

Second, we know that when you provide us with any type of information, you're trusting us to keep it safe from unauthorized intrusion. We take reasonable steps, through the use of updated security software and protocols, to ensure that your personal information is safe.
V. What Do You Need to Do to Protect Your Personal Information?
You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your personal information. One option is simply not to volunteer any personal information. This approach would prevent you from receiving a free visitors guide or free e-news emails. Another option is to configure your Web browser to refuse all new cookies, to notify you whenever you are about to receive a new cookie, or to disable cookies completely. The Federal Trade Commission's website also offers useful information about how to protect your personal information while on the Internet.
