AllianceTexas is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the AllianceTexas site and governs data collection and usage. By using the AllianceTexas site, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of Your Personal Information
AllianceTexas collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. AllianceTexas also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by AllianceTexas. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by AllianceTexas for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the AllianceTexas site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through AllianceTexas public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: AllianceTexas does not read any of your private online communications.
AllianceTexas encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from AllianceTexas so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. AllianceTexas is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the AllianceTexas and AllianceTexas family of Web sites.
Use of Your Personal Information
AllianceTexas collects and uses your personal information to operate the AllianceTexas Web site and deliver the services you have requested. AllianceTexas also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from AllianceTexas and its affiliates. AllianceTexas may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
AllianceTexas does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. AllianceTexas may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, AllianceTexas may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to AllianceTexas, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
AllianceTexas does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
AllianceTexas keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within AllianceTexas, in order to determine what AllianceTexas services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within AllianceTexas to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
AllianceTexas Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AllianceTexas or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AllianceTexas; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of AllianceTexas, or the public.
The AllianceTexas Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize AllianceTexas pages, or register with AllianceTexas site or services, a cookie helps AllianceTexas to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same AllianceTexas Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the AllianceTexas features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the AllianceTexas services or Web sites you visit.
Your California Privacy Rights: California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits the Company’s customers who are California residents to request and obtain from the Company once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) the Company disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which the Company shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to:
