Information Collection and Use
The Advanced Emergency Training Center is the sole owner of the
information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent
this information to others in ways other than those outlined in this
statement. The Advanced Emergency Training Center collects
information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
Personal info provided by users will be used by the AETC to improve the
site and provide a more personalized experience for the user, but
information which identifies a specific individual will not be disclosed
to others without the userís permission unless necessary to provide
services which the user has requested.
It is optional for a user to complete a registration form. If a user
chooses to complete one, a user is required to give certain information
(such as name and email address). This information is used to contact
the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed
interest. It is optional for the user to provide additional demographic
information (such as income level and gender), but encouraged so we can
provide a more personalized experience on our site.

secured site for financial transactions. When the user signs up for
these services, we will share names, or other contact information that
