Jurisdiction and Choice of Law
This Site is controlled and operated by ACC from its offices within Canada. ACC makes no representation that materials in this Site are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to such materials from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access this Site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.

Any action you, or any third party brings to enforce these Terms and Conditions or in connection with any matters related to this Site shall be brought only in the Provincial or Federal Courts located in the city of Vancouver, and you expressly consent to the jurisdiction of said courts.
Privacy is important to the ACC, and we imagine that you feel the same way. ACC explicitly asks you when we need information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). When you sign up for membership with ACC, we agree to not sell, rent, or distribute your Personal Information in any way (however, remember that is a public directory and other members can see whatever information you choose to make public).
Security: The ACC will work diligently to protect the security of your Personal Information. Your data is kept in a secure environment protected from access by unauthorized parties. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access by storing your password in a secure location and ensuring you log off when finished visiting using a shared computer.
E-mail: ACC uses your Personal Information to operate and we may occasionally contact you with your consent. ACC will never intentionally send unsolicited e-mail messages that could legitimately be construed as spam. All e-mails sent from ACC will be sent only to those that have opted-in and will contain opt-out instructions, should you decide to remove yourself from our e-mail distribution list.
Statistics: Your information is also used in aggregate form on the web site statistics page to allow other web site users to get a better understanding of who makes up the club, without revealing any individual data.
Updating & Removing Personal Information: ACC provides you with a way in which you can alter or remove the Personal Information listed in the member network, via a profile update page in the member area. If you wish to have your membership registration removed, simply log into the member area and request that your account be closed.
Surveys: ACC may periodically conduct individual voluntary member surveys. ACC encourages members to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the club. The responses ACC collects from online surveys are anonymous.
IP Address: The ACC uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. This information is used in a way that it does not display information that identifies individual members.
Third Party Links: The Site contains links to a variety of third party sites to enhance the member experience. ACC has no control of either the content or privacy policies of such sites, nor should such links be considered an endorsement of these sites except where otherwise noted.
Children: Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important to the ACC. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our web site from those ACC actually knows are under 18, and no part of the Site is intended for use by those under 18.
Abuse: ACC may provide your personal information to the police or other investigating agencies to assist them in the investigation of any suspected violations of law. ACC also has the right to share your name and contact information with our attorneys, in the event of serious violations of conduct.
Content: ACC respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same. We will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using the website if such claims are reported. If you are a copyright owner, authorized to act on behalf of one, please report alleged copyright infringements taking place on the site and we will take appropriate action, including removal of the challenged content from the Site. If you have questions about this policy, please e-mail us at [email protected].
