Personal Information

AMF is committed to protecting the privacy of the public and will collect no personal information from you unless you choose to provide that information. If you purchase any product offered on the AMF website, we collect personal information required to support the purchase of products, including names, addresses and e-mail addresses.

Visit Information

When you visit the AMF Website, our tracking agent automatically collects some basic information about your computer, including the following: your most recently visited URL, IP address (your computer’s unique signature), operating system and browser software. 

The information collected reflects the user population as a whole rather than focusing on individuals. It is used to better understand the people who visit the site.   This information allows AMF to identify the most popular pages on the Website. Aggregated data of non-personally identifiable information may be disclosed to the AMF Board to inform them of the number and categories of people who have visited the Website. 


The AMF Website sends all visitors a cookie (small computer file) that contains a unique serial number that recognizes repeat users and facilitates ongoing access to and use of the Website. AMF does not use cookies to monitor the use of its Website by individual users. Cookies do not collect personally identifying information; they collect information related to the characteristics of your computer, or when and how you reached the AMF site. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. They do not pose a threat to a user’s system or files. Each time our Web server receives a request for a page, it checks to see if the cookie is present; this enables us to determine how much of our traffic is from repeat visitors. 

We use this information only for purposes of planning and tracking, as well as assessing the technical function of our site. By understanding how our site is accessed, we can continually improve it to respond to user’s interests..

Security; No Guarantee

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, AMF has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected online.  Unfortunately, no information transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure.  Accordingly, despite our efforts, AMF cannot guarantee or warrant the security of information you transmit to us.

Change of Policies

AMF may modify these policies at any time by posting revisions on its website. Only the posted statement is effective with respect to current use of the site.
