Links to Other Sites Our Service may contain links to other sites. If you click on such a link, you will be directed to that site. Note that these external sites are not operated by us. Therefore, we strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of these websites. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any external sites or services. This includes links from partners that may use our logos as part of a co-branding agreement. The sites those links can take you to once again have their own separate privacy policy and although we seek to protect the integrity of our site, we are not liable for the content and activities of those sites.

Children's Privacy We are a general audience site, and we do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 16 years of age. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a site user is under age 16 and is using the services without consent of a parent or guardian, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account. Children 16 or under cannot create an account through our site. We do provide services in person to children under the age of 16, such as child care and swimming lessons. For those services we require the written consent of a parent or guardian before a minor may use any in person facilities or services. At the direction of their respective parents or guardians, we may collect limited information related to children under 16. In the case we discover that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we immediately delete the information. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information or is using our website without your supervision or consent, please contact us so that we will be able to take the necessary actions. While we use external services which may store IP addresses for the purpose of maintaining site security and blocking hacking attempts, we do not collect or store any associated personal information and have no way of connecting said data to any specific person, such as a child under the age of 16. 13. Browser “Do Not Track” Requests This Site treats the privacy of all users with an equally high level of respect and priority. Thus, as all users and user information is treated the same, this Site does not acknowledge your browser’s “Do Not Track” requests. 14. Changes to This Privacy Policy We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, we advise you to review this page periodically for any changes. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page, or as otherwise required by applicable laws and regulations. These changes are effective immediately, after they are posted on this page. 15. Privacy Regulations. At this time, AVAC is not governed by the California Consumer Privacy Act, the Nevada Privacy Law, or the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. We are not required to comply with data subject requests under those regulations, and may elect to do so at our sole discretion. If AVAC becomes subject to any such laws and regulations, this Privacy Policy will be updated to comply with such laws and regulations. That being said, we take the privacy of our Users and members very seriously. If you have any concerns about your privacy, please do not hesitate to contact us. 16.
