CUSTOMER ORDERS AND INFORMATION Our site uses order forms for customers to request information, products and services. Contact information from the order form is used to send orders, communicate information and promotional material from our company and partner companies. Financial information that is collected is used to charge or bill you for products and services ordered.

If any unauthorized use of your credit card occurs as a result of your credit card purchase from AMI, simply notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.

You can also take steps to secure your personal information. When you are finished at AMI, sign off the AMI site and close your browser window.

Furthermore, we have implemented industry standard security mechanisms and procedures to protect data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION We share the information that you provide to us in the following circumstances: 1. Service Providers. From time to time we may share information with companies and individuals who provide servicing, administrative, marketing and other services for us, or on our behalf. These services may include fulfillment centers, mailing houses, event providers, and customer support organizations. 2. Affiliates. From time to time we may share information with our affiliates. These include companies that we own or control, companies that own or control us, or companies that are owned or controlled by the same companies that own or control us. Such information may be used by our affiliates to promote their products and services to you. Where such information sharing occurs, our affiliates will follow the terms contained in this policy. 3. Third Parties. From time to time we may share your contact information with third parties so that they may promote their products and services to you. 4. Law Enforcement. We may cooperate with reasonable requests for information from law enforcement agencies. As a result, we reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we reasonably believe may aid a law enforcement investigation into unlawful activity. In addition, we reserve the right to release your information to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that either you have violated our policies, or the release of your information may protect our, your, or another person’s rights, property or safety. 5. Other Persons As Permitted by Law. We may share your information with others as required by, or permitted by, law. This may include sharing your information with governmental entities, or third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal process, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or possible legal claims that we determine in our sole discretion might be brought against us. 6. Transfers. In the event that all, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired, your information will be transferred to the acquiring company.

MERGER OR AQUISITION AMI a dynamic nonadvisory publisher. As our business continues to develop and grow, it is possible that we might sell or buy other publishers, advisory services, products, or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that AMI or a substantial part or all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

ADVERTISING AMI may feature several services that are co-sponsored by other web sites. One example of such a feature is the quote service. Additionally, our site contains links to other web sites, including those of advertisers. We are not responsible for the claims or representations made by advertisers or sponsors. While these co-sponsored activities, banner ads and links originate on AMI, we do not operate them. For example, if you click on a link or banner advertisement, that click takes you out of AMI to either the service or ad provider’s site. These other sites may use cookies, collect data, or solicit personal information from you. Since we do not have control over the privacy practices or the content of these sites, we recommend that you check their privacy policies before giving out any personal information through AMI access to or maintain any information collected by our co-sponsors or advertisers. We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We hope this Privacy Statement has explained what we do with the personal information that we collect from you, our views and practices regarding personal information and how they affect you as you use our features and services, and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. We make no promises. We will try our best to protect and honor your privacy rights and request.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION This site supplements the information that you provide with information that is received from third parties. For example, your address may be run against the U.S. postal service database in an effort to correct any typographical errors, so that the publications you seek will indeed arrive at the right location.

UPDATING AND REMOVAL OF DATA You may have your name removed from our email marketing lists at any time, by visiting the AMI website and adjusting your communication preferences. Please read the information in this area very carefully so that you do not inadvertently discontinue the receipt of materials that you actually do wish to receive.

NOTICE If we are legally required to notify you about a security incident we will either notify you by email, writing, or phone at our discretion.
